Who Are the People We
Help? Here is an example:
Mrs. T. called Tampa Jewish
Family Services to make an
appointment with a counselor
for her and her husband.
However, the counselor was
surprised to see only Mrs. T.
walk in and close the door
behind her. She explained that
her husband was not able to
come to the session because of
his business, but that she
wanted to begin anyway.
Mr. T. had been married
before and had two children, a
son aged 18 and a daughter ag-
ed 14. She and Mr. T. had been
married for two years. They
lived with her daughter and his
ten-year-old son from a
previous marriage.
During the first year of this
marriage, everyone had seem-
ed happy, and both parents
had made an effort to make
sure that their blended family
got along well. They had gone
to Disneyworld together, took
a camping trip for a week, and
had cook-outs to which the
children both invited their

and he was able to expand his
business to a larger area. This
meant that he had to work
longer hours.
Mrs. T. now had to deal with
disciplining both her daughter
and hrr step-son, a fact the boy
resented. He would accept
limits imposed on him by his
father, but not by his step-
Communication between Mr.
and Mrs. T. had become more
difficult because Mr. T. was
working such long hours. By
the time he came home, both
children were asleep, and Mrs.
T. was too exhausted to talk.
By the third session, Mr. T.
accompanied his wife to the
agency. He finally understood
that she "meant business"
about wanting to improve her
relationship with his son
that the deterioration of this
relationship could mean the
destruction of their marriage.
Hard though it was, he found
the time to attend counseling
with his wife and to commit
himself with her to improving
both their relationship, the
relationship with children, and
the marriage.

Three New Faces At The Jewish Community Center
Mock Interim Executive Director
Ivers Camp Director and Senior Programmer
Stepping in to meet the
challenge of maintaining the
Jewish Community Center as
an important Jewish presence
in Tampa, Sharon Mock has
returned as the interim direc-
tor. Sharon was president of
the Jewish Community Center
during the years 1981 to 1983.
Mock said, "We are in the
process of streamlining the
staff to make it more effective
and to better meet the needs of
the community at large. The
JCC Board of Directors and
the community will have to
decide the future direction for
our Center."
Mock has set the pace and
the wheels in motion for
energizing committees and
seeking creative funding.
"Three areas we are concen-
trating on at this time are the
pre-school, with an active com-
mitted parent's committee
which will earmark funds from
events toward buying much
needed equipment; the con-
tinuation of a Senior's pro-
gram for this large segment of
our population; and the sum-
mer day camp. There is a
definite need for the use of two
transportation vans, and we
are in the midst of designing a
grant for that purpose," said
She has appointed Alice
Rosenthal and Marty Freid to
head the search committee
which is busy reviewing ap-
plications for the position of
executive director.
"This is a very busy time of
year for members of the
Jewish Community Center,"
Sharon stated, "More than 400
baskets were delivered during
the second Mishloach Manot,
the giving of sweets to friends
and neighbors as a Purim
custom; the second annual auc-
tion, Fantasia, where more
than $26,000 was raised; and
now we are concentrating on
the gala Israel Independence
Day celebration to be held on
May 2 at Congregation
Rodeph Sholom."
Sharon is married to Roger
Mock and they have two
children, Beth and Kevin.
When the weather outside is
freezing maybe it is time to
look to sunnier climes, and
that is what the Ivers family
did in December. They moved
to Tampa from Toledo, Ohio.
Sandie Ivers is the new camp
director and senior program-
mer at the Jewish Community
Sandie was a pre-school
teacher at the Jewish Com-
munity Center in Toledo for
six-and-a-half years, an assis-
tant pre-camp director for
three summers, and most
recently the assistant Early
Childhood director, so it was
only natural for her to seek out
the advantages of the Tampa
As camp director, Sandie
has planned a Camp Sabra/CIT
training program for those
teens entering Grades 9 and 10
to be held May 3, 17, and 24
from 1 until 3 p.m. at the
Jewish Community Center.
This program is for boys and
girls who are interested in a
learning experience which will
enable them to become junior
counselors. It will prepare
them to work with younger
campers, teaching them a bit
of child development, arts and
crafts, and games. During the
eight week training program,
which follows the regular
camp schedule, these early
teens will be able to improve
their skills and understanding
of the total camping picture.
Ivers is pleased with the
returning camp counselors
since they have had camping
experience and they also nave
a background in Judaica. She
said, "I am looking forward to
a fantastic summer with many
memorable experiences for the
camper and the staff."
In the Fall Sandie would like
to see an Adopt-A-
Grandparent project in place
between the pre-schoolers and
the seniors, incorporating in-
tergeneration programming
the gap.
Sandie is married to Larry
Ivers and they have two
children, Brad and Stacie.
Stephanie Goldstein -Speech Contest Winner
Valins Interim Pre-School Director
"When children are 'just
playing' they are learning so
much more. They are interac-
ting with each other and
sharpening their social skills.
That is one of the reasons I
think we have the best pre-
school in the city," said
Claudia Valins, the interim
Sre-school director at the
ewish Community Center.
"We do what is best for the
kids. They learn to feel good
about themselves, they learn
through playing, they learn to
take turns and to share, and
they are cared for in a very
special, loving way."
Claudia is not a newcomer to
the Jewish Community Center
pre-school. She has taught the
two year olds at the south and
north branches for about five
years. She brings with her a
bachelor degree in Elementary
Education and a master's
degree in Special Education.
Before moving to Tampa
Valins taught children with
learning disabilities from all
grade levels. Claudia also
teaches in the Kol Ami
Religious School.
Valins said, "I really love
working with the kids. I try to
get into their feelings. I love
the people part of this job, be-
ing with the children, helping
with the problems, filling
needs. I guess I was ready for
the challenge."
Besides teaching the
Playtots at the South Branch
on Tuesday and Thursday,
Claudia is busy interviewing
teachers and meeting with
parents to prepare the pre-
school for next year.
"My philosophy is learning
through play, said Claudia,
so often many parents look for

the newest, the shiniest, the
prettiest, overlooking what is
the best for the kids. The JCC
Pre-School is very personal, a
real family, truly a home away
from home."
Some new equipment for the
classrooms has already been
ordered, such as sand and
water play tables, puzzles,
manipulatives, and a doll
house and furniture. Through
the untiring efforts of Sharon
Mock the classrooms and the
front hall will be painted dur-
ing the Passover break.
With more than 150 children
enrolled in the two branches,
the Jewish Community Center
Pre-School offers much to the
community. So as not to in-
terfere with the Passover holi-
day the deadline for the Early
Bird registration has been ex-
tended to April 30.
Some of the programs of-
fered include the regular Pre-
School with two day, three
day, and five day sessions; the
Creepie Crawlies, for children
six to 18 months; the Baby
Biceps, for children 18 months
to two years, and the Playtots,
for children 18 months to two
The Day Care program is
conveniently available until six
in the evening on a weekly,
daily, and even an hourly basis
for those children enrolled in
the pre-school.
The enrichment program for
pre-schoolers, on an eight to
ten week schedule, extends
their day for 45 minutes and
offers such inviting activities
as Tool Box, a wood working
class; Musical Chairs, music
for the young child; and Hineh
Mah Tov, a Shabbat program.
In the Fall Valins said there
will begin an extended day for
the older four year old,
teaching them ore-
kindergarten readiness skills.
Claudia is married to Bob
Valins and they have three
children, Andrew, Scott, and
What does it feel like to be
the only Jewish kid in your
class? Just ask Stephanie
Goldstein, fifth grader at
Essrig Elementary, whose
speech, "On Being Jewish,"
took first place honors in the
school competition for the 4-H
Tropicana Speech Contest on
March 27. Fourth and fifth
grade contestants were asked
to speak on any real-life ex-
perience they have had, and
Stephanie chose to speak on
how she has felt being the only
Jewish child in her class for
most of her years in school.
In her speech Stephanie said
that she feels "proud, but dif-
ferent" being Jewish, especial-
ly when her class does
Christmas projects in school
and when friends can't believe
she doesn't have a Christmas
tree. But, as she explained in
her two and one-half minute
speech, it is the pride that
Under Fire
President Chaim Herzog has
come under fire from both the
Israeli left and right after com-
muting the life sentences of
three members of a Jewish
underground to a maximum of
24 years in prison.
Haim Kaufman, chairman of
the Likud Knesset faction, said
that while he welcomed the
President's move, the three
should be pardoned im-
mediately. The Citizens Rights
Movement (CRM), at the op-
posite side of the political spec-
trum, said it would fight
against pardons for members
of the underground by every
legal, parliamentary and
public means.
The three prisoners,
Menahem Livni, Shaul Nir and
Uzi Sharabaf, were sentenced
to life terms for the
machinegun attack on the
Islamic College in Hebron
seven years ago in which three
students were killed.
Former President Ephraim
Katzir was critical of his suc-
cessor. In an interview
published in Haaretz Katzir
expressed concern that some
rtople might misinterpret the
resident's decision as
forgiveness of Israelis who
commit crimes against Arabs.
most often wins out. She told
her audience how next year
she will begin to prepare for
her bat mitzvah and how at 13,
she will be considered an adult
by her people and will be ex-
pected to obey the Jewish
laws, just like her parents.
Stephanie's parents, Bruce
and Barbara Goldstein, and
seven-year-old brother, Adam,
will cheer her on at the county
competition in mid-April
where Stephanie will compete
against other school winners
representing their area
schools. Also in attendance

trip to Tampa to hear his
granddaughter speak.

Profile Of A Nazi In Chile

Protocols' are being fulfilled, the government's failure to

tocol, here, among us."
A Life magazine photo show-
ed him offering the Nazi salute
over the open grave of Walter
Rauff, the Nazi war criminal
who invented the mobile gas
chamber and later found
refuge in Chile. He was billed
as a keynote speaker for a Los
Angeles convention of the
California-based Institute for
Historical Review, a group
that claims the Holocaust is a
Jewish hoax. As a Chilean
diplomat, he was Ambassador
to India and became an in-
timate friend of Indira Gandhi.
His name is Miguel Serrano.
He is a colorful and
charismatic character who has
been in the forefront of an up-
surge of Nazism and anti-
Semitism that has caused con-
cern to the Chilean Jewish
community during the past
three years. Their fears have
been heightened because these
acts reflect an apparent
change in the military govern-
ment's policy, which, from the
time it took power in 1973 un-
til 1984, had sought to prevent
manifestations of anti-
Semitism. Two weeks after the
1973 coup, representatives of
the military government came
to the Anti-Defamation
League's national head-
quarters in New York and
reassured the agency's Latin
American Affairs Department
that "there is no anti-Semitism
in Chile and there will be
In 1984, the Jewish com-
munity publicly deplored the
increase of Nazi activity in
Chile. Recently, the president
of the Representative Commit-
tee of Jewish Entities in Chile,
Isidoro Gorodischer, met with
the Minister of Justice, Hugo
Rosende, to discuss the pro-
blem and specifically the ac-
tivities of Miguel Serrano. The
Jewish leader urged legal
sanctions against those who
promote racist ideas.
Serrano is a self-declared
racist. He characterizes all
mestizos (persons of mixed
ancestry with American In-
dian blood) as "bad."
A paranoid anti-Semite, Ser-
rano sees Jewish plots
everywhere. Among his con-
temporary villains are "the
Great Synagogue, Masonic
Lodges and the Vatican."
Serrano published three
books in 1986, each ending
with the words "Heil Hitler!
Zig Heil!" and dated "the 97th
year of the Hitler Era."
One of the books is entitled
"National Socialism, the Only
Solution for the People of
South America." Another,
"The Resurrection of the
Hero," is a mystical treatise
invoking astrology and
(Rabbi Morton M. Rosenthai

American Affiirs Department

League's International Affaire
alchemy, in which Serrano por-
trays Hitler as the "Incarna-
tion, the emanation of a God, a
hero ..." The book denounces
the Catholic Church as an enti-
ty "which takes its orders
from the Synagogue."
The third is entitled "The
Chilean Racial Cycle." All
three are being distributed
A leftist in the 1930s, Ser-
rano first published his Nazi
ideology in 1978 in a book call-
ed, "The Golden Cord:
Esoteric Hitlerism." The work
claimed that the Holocaust
never occurred, a theme he
repeats in later books. He also
argued that Hitler is still alive,
concluding that even though
he had been unable to find him,
"Hitler, for us, is as alive as
Jesus for the Christians."
Serrano is well-connected,
inside and outside of Chile. In
1982, he was invited to lecture
at the Chilean Academy of Na-
tional Security. Addressing
the military officers, he ex-
pressed his hope that the
Chilean Army would be
transformed into a "Racist
War Order."
In an interview published in
the Spanish newspaper El
Pais, in 1985, Serrano claimed
that the Nazis did not operate
"even one gas chamber" and
described the Holocaust as a
"diabolic hoax." In announc-
ing Serrano's appearance as a
speaker at the Institute for
Historical Review convention
in Los Angeles, in February
1986, the Institute described
him as "a world-class author
... the world's foremost
authority on the intriguing and
little-known relationships bet-
ween the National Socialist
government and Third World
nations ..." His lecture, "Na-
tional Socialism and the Third
World," apparently followed
the theme of his book on the
same subject.
In 1986, the leading San-
tiago daily newspaper, El Mer-
curio, devoted two-thirds of a
page to his lengthy defense of
Serrano is linked to
CEDADE, (Spanish Circle of
Friends of Europe), a neo-Nazi
group based in Barcelona, now
active in Chile and Argentina.
CEDADE distributed in Chile
new editions of Hitler's "Msin
Kampf' and "The Protocols of
the Elders of Zion." Both con-
tained prefaces written by Ser-
rano. He described "Mein

preface to "The Protocols," he
asserted that the Jews' objec-
tive is "the total domination of

and the Nazis for having

Serrano cannot be dismissed
as a harmless eccentric. His
ideas have explosive potential

economic crises. Acts of van-
dalism and terrorism against

Passover Around The JDC World
In Romania, 5,000 Jews,
many of them aged and infirm
survivors of the Holocaust,
will attend community
Sedorim funded with the help
of the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC).
Other members of the com-
munity will receive special
Passover parcels of kosher
food and wine.
In Tunisia, some 350 people
in six communities will receive
special assistance to buy mat-
zah, matzah meal, wine, meat,
and oil for the holiday, thanks
to JDC.
These are two ways in which
JDC helps bring Passover into
Jewish homes, no matter how
isolated or poor, around the
"May all who are hungry
come and eat," reads the Hag-
gadah. JDC, acting on behalf
of the American Jewish com-
munity, takes this injunction
very seriously.
"Wherever there are Jews in
need, JDC is at work," say
JDC President Heinz Eppler
and Executive Vice Presi< ent
Ralph I. Goldman in their
Passover message. "As we
celebrate this joyous festival,
we join in sending greetings to
our fellows Jews around the
world those overseas, whom
we help observe the holiday, as
well as those at home, who
make this help possible with
their continued support of the
United Jewish Appeal.
In many of the 34 countries
in which it operates, JDC helps
provide Passover assistance.
The Jewish communities of
Morocco and Poland receive
shipments of matzah, matzah
flour, and wine for the holiday.
Elsewhere in Eastern
Europe, JDC helps distribute
matzah to clients of the Jewish
community's social assistance
agency in Hungary. In
Czechoslovakia, where kosher
food and Passover wine are
not available, JDC helps pur-
chase Jthe supplies elsewhere
and imports them into the
country for distribution.
The 180 Jews of Egypt
receive supplies of kosher
meat and wine, matzah, and
matzah meal with the help of
JDC. Passover supplies and
food baskets are provided for
needy Jews in Algeria as well.
In Israel, JDC is faithful to
its tradition of helping those
on the fringes of society and
gives aid to the physically and
socially handicapped, the aged,
and the very young. In old-age
homes, community centers,
and other institutions where
JDC plays a major role in
maintaining a high standard of
service, its presence is quietly
felt at the Seder table.
This mitzvah is made possi-
ble by the American Jewish
community's generous support
of the United Jewish Appeal,
which provides the bulk of the
JDC 1987 budget of $57
No Carmelite Convent In Auschwitz,
Full Polish Relations With Israel In Offing
18 NiSAK 5747
Number 8
Sultanik, President of the
American Federation of Polish
Jews announced he had receiv-
ed information from Warsaw
that the Polish government
and the Catholic Church have
agreed to remove the
Carmelite Convent from
Auschwitz. He also reported
that Joseph Czyrek, Chairman
of the Polish Parliamentary
Commission of Foreign Affairs
had spoken encouragingly to
him at their recent meeting
concerning the positive steps
Poland was taking towards full
diplomatic relations to Israel.
Mr. Sultanik reported these
developments to the more than
300 participants in the Federa-
tion Annual Conference at the
Plaza Hotel in New York City
which marked 1,000 years of
Jewish life in Poland.
Mr. Sultanik also emphasiz-
ed that the relations between
Poland and Israel are improv-
ing in all areas and that their
content is more important
than their formality, especially
in the cultural exchanges bet-
ween the two countries. Mr.
Czyrek had told him that
Poland is very much interested
in the enhancement of rela-
tions between his country and
the Jewish community in the
United States. He remarked,
however, that he sometimes
felt much easier dealing with
Israel than with the Jewish
community in the United
Mr. Sultanik announced that
the Federation, together with
the Jewish National Fund,
undertook a campaign to plant
some 300,000 trees on the hills
oi Jerusalem in memory of
Polish Jewry and a special
campaign will be launched at
an official dinner in honor of
Mr. Edgar Bronfman, Presi-
dent of the World Jewish Con-
gress, which will take place
Sunday, June 7, at the Plaza
Professor Mattityahu Mine
of Tel Aviv University, re-
counted the last century of
Polish Jewry's vital contribu-
tions to Polish and Jewish life
and culture.
He said there is a danger
that the history of Poland
would be written by Polish
historians and not Jewish
historians with the result that
content would be missing. It is
therefore essential that the
two research institutes at the
University of Tel Aviv and the
Hebrew University for the
study of the history of Polish
Jews be supported. This
research will be conducted by
Jewish scholars on documents
that are collected from ar-
chives in Poland, which are
brought to Israel.
On May 5, the Congress will
take place in Israel with the
participation of the President
of Israel, as well as historians
and scholars.

Channel 3 WEDU Participates
In National Holocaust Week
Friday, April ll/mifTheJbm&h FldridiaiirofTampa_j>age 5
At the end of World War II,
Allied troops liberated Europe
from Nazi oppression. Some of
these Europeans had been in-
terned in concentration camps.
Six million Jewish people died
in these camps. They were
Europeans who were deemed
"unpure" by Hitler.
In memorial to these six
million people the week of
April 25 to May 1 has been
designated National Holocaust
Week. In honor of this event,
Channel 3 will air three special
programs. GENOCIDE airs
Sunday, April 26 at 10 p.m.,
SHOAH airs Monday, April 27
through Thursday, April 30, at
8 p.m., and THE COURAGE
TO CARE airs Wednesday,
April 29, at 10:30 p.m. Each of
these programs looks at the
Holocaust with a different
The first program to air is
GENOCIDE. This 90 minute
documentary features archival
footage that is narrated by Or-
son Welles and Elizabeth
Taylor. GENOCIDE traces the
history of anti-Semitism from
Roman times to Hitler's rise to
power. It then takes you to the
trains and camps of the Nazi
hate machine.
GENOCIDE was co-
produced by the Simon
Wiesenthal Center and Arnold
The second documentary is
SHOAH. The name comes
from the Hebrew word that
means "annihilation" and it is
unlike any documentary of the
Holocaust. It was filmed over a
period of 11 years in 14 coun-
tries by French
cinematographer Claude
The nine and a half hour
documentary will be broadcast
over a four night period and
also features an interview with
Lanzmann. SHOAH was pro-
duced without the use of ar-
chival footage. Interviewed
are a few survivors of the
death camps, the neighboring
farmers and villagers, former
Weizmann Scientist Wins
Prestigious Wolf Award
Professor Weir Wilchek, a
biophysicist at Israel's Weiz-
mann Institute of Science, and
Professor Pedro Cuatrecasas,
an American biochemist at
Duke University, have been
awarded the prestigious Wolf
Foundation Prize in Medicine
for 1987.
Professors Wilchek and
Cuatrecasas will share a
$100,000 prize for their
"invention and development of
affinity chromotography and
its application to biomedical
sciences." This new technique
will have significant impact on
medicine, including the
removal of toxins from the
blood and the delivery of
therapeutic agents to specific
The prizes are awarded by
the Wolf Foundation, created
by the Israeli Parliament in
1975 "to promote science and
art for the benefit of
mankind." The organization
was created largely on the in-
itiative of Ricardo Subrina
Lobo Wolf, a native of
Hanover, Germany, and his
wife, Francisca.
Professors Wilchek and
Cuatrecasas were among 12
world leaders who received
awards in six areas of
endeavor, including
agriculture, chemistry,
mathematics, physics, the arts
as well as medicine. Professor
Wilchek will receive the Wolf
Prize from Chaim Herzog, the
president of Israel, at a special
ceremony at the Knesset on
May 31.
Professor Wilchek, a
member of the Department of
Biophysics at the Weizmann
Institute, holds the Marc R.

The third program planned
for National Holocaust Week
This half-hour documentary
profiles non-Jews who helped
Jews during the Nazi oppres-
sion. It features commentary
by scholar/author and Nobel
Peace Prize winner Elie
Weisel. This film speaks of the
power of individual respon-
sibility and demonstrates how
ordinary actions in extraor-
dinary circumstances can
make a difference.

Watch Out For Non-Events
"Non-event!" That's a word
used to describe an event
perceived in advance to be of
awesome importance only to
turn out to be a matter of the
purest trivia.
A firecracker is a good ex-
ample of a non-event.
Everyone hold their ears in an-
ticipation of a horrendous ex-
plosion. But it never comes
because the fuse fizzles out!
There are a lot of fizzling
fuses littering the investment
landscape these days (not to
mention multiple careening
fire trucks answering false
alarms). As a result, ears are
plugged and eyes blindfolded,
and almost no one sees what's
really going on. The big (and
true) picture is obscured
Psychologists have a fancier
term for all these fretting and
fuming matters. They call
them "free floating anxieties."
Their clinical diagnosis reveals
that if all clouds seem to have
silver linings, worries are in-
vented so that we'll all have
something to do.
No matter what you call
them, "non-events" can be
significant distractions. What
are some of the free floating
anxieties flopping around in
the form of fizzling fuses these
days? More than a few, we're
sorry to report, most more
mirage than meaningful.
At the head of the list is the
fretting about interest rates.
The worry, first of all, is that
they'll decline and thereby
lower our returns on various
sundry income-oriented in-
vestments. Or the fear that
they'll rise and bring along a
round of inflation to boot!
Notice how this syllogism has
everyone coned. No matter
what happens, the result is
What's our opinion? For
what it's worth, we call it a
non-event. Interest rates are
important, to be sure. But
more often than not, their fluc-
tuations are non-events. The
repercussions are not nearly as
serious as the excessive an-
ticipation of their shifts.
What's another non-event?
How about the next bear
The gloom and doom talk is
sometimes so pervasive these
days many grown adults of our
acquaintance are shaking in
their boots. Is the concern
misplaced? Are we saying
there won't be any bear
markets? Of course not! Bear
markets are a common
phenomenon. But the anticipa-
tion is almost always worse
than the pain of the event
itself. Indeed bear markets
may be opportunities!
Inflation is clearly not a non-
event. It is a matter of the
most consuming importance.
But watch out! It is possible,
believe it or not, to worry too
much about this matter and
thereby so cloud your invest-
ment vision that you'll be
frozen into inaction.
Excessive worry about some
problems means less time to
concentrate on solutions, or
perhaps focus on the real
Mark Twain must have been
motivated by such non-events

more than one occasion in his

And so it is with many, if not
most, of our modern day
traumas. They are rooted in
matters that nearly always
turn out to be non-events.

phobias come from? Don't look
to us for the answers. We've

U.S. Medical Student Follows
AIDS: A Health Risk
Everyone Should Understand
Each year the House of
Representatives' Committee
on Ways and Means sets aside
a weekend for all the members
of that committee to spend
time together studying the
issues that will have an impact
on America's economy over
the next few years. In our
most recent meeting at the
end of March we listened to
many experts on topics rang-
ing from the recent tax reform
act to the new trade bill being
submitted by our committee,
but the issue that many of the
experts most wanted to
discuss was the impact that
the deadly virus known as
AIDS will have on the health
of Americans and their
economy in the next decade.
AIDS, or Acquired Immuni-
ty Deficiency Syndrome, is a
virus (or germ) that can be
passed from one person to
another chiefly during sexual
intercourse or through the
sharing of intravenous drug
needles and syringes used for
"snooting" drugs. AIDS in an
infected mother is transmitted
to her child at birth. The AIDS
virus attacks a person's im-
mune system and damages his
or her ability to ward off other
diseases. Without a function-
ing immune system to ward off
other germs, the body becomes
vulnerable to becoming in-
fected by bacteria, protozoa,
fungi, and other viruses and
malignancies which may cause
life-threatening illness, such as
pneumonia, meningitis, and
There is no known cure for
AIDS and there is no vaccine
to prevent getting AIDS. The
presence of the AIDS virus can
be detected with a blood test,
usually two weeks to three
months after infection. Unfor-
tunately, even before the test
shows positive, the victim can
pass the virus to others.
AIDS, as we now face it, is a
fatal disease.
Those at risk of getting
AIDS are no longer limited to
a few well-defined groups.
While homosexual men and in-
travenous drug users are still
the most likely to acquire the
disease, women and heterosex-
ual men are increasingly at
risk as the virus spreads
throughout the population.
Scientists are working here
and around the world to find a
cure, but progress is extreme-
ly slow.
If a cure cannot be found,
the AIDS epidemic has the
potential of drastically reduc-
ing our workforce, therby put-
ting a greater burden on those
who can work to support the
aged and infirm. Even without
the problems that AIDS
presents, the workforce will
carry a greater burden as the
baby boom generations begin
to retire towards the end of
the next decade. The govern-
ment will most likely have to
pay for the enormous costs of
taking care of the AIDS vic-
tims while at the same time
continuing to support an ex-
panding Social Security pro-
gram. The money for those
government programs
ultimately will come out of the
pocket of America's workers.
How we will deal with these
health and economic pressures
is not yet clear. Experts agree
that the best thing we can do
as a nation for now is to
educate ourselves and our
children about the disease and
how it is transmitted. In the
meantime, scientific research
must continue here and around
the world.

TOP Increases Assets By $2 Million
The Tampa Orlando Pinellas
Jewish Foundation, Inc.
(TOP), the endowment arm of
the Jewish Federation, in-
creased its total assets by $2
million in the last three months
of 1986, according to Mark
Glickman, TOP's executive
"What is particularly ex-
citing is the number of people
that have opened new Dhilan-
thropic funds within our Foun-
dation," said Glickman. "We
grew from 87 funds to 115
funds, for a 32 percent in-
crease. This shows the con-
tinuous broadening of our base
of support."
TOP was incorporated in
1980, and has grown by leaps
and bounds since its inception.
Starting with assets of
$649,163 at the end of its first
fiscal year on June 30,1981, as
of December 1986, TOP had
assets valued at $7.5 million.
In the last three months of
1986, TOP received over $2
million in gifts, of which
$900,000 was cash and
marketable securities.
Glickman credited a good deal
of the growth to the changes in
the tax laws. "Many of our
donors took advantage of the
1986 laws, and we received a
large number of substantially
appreciated stock, real estate,
and closely-held stock," he
said. "However, 1987 will also
be an excellent opportunity to
make charitable donations to
non-profit organizations, as
the top tax rates continue to
shift to lower brackets."
As of December 31, TOP had
$1,784,000 from Tampa;
$2,606,000 from Orlando; and
$2,453,000 from Pinellas. It
also manages a $600,000 fund
for a Pinellas Jewish

Scent of Science
At Weizmann Institute In Israel
Second-year medical student
Stuart Varon has already
tasted the sweet smell of scien-
tific success. While doing
research at the Weizmann In-
stitute of science in Rehovot,
Israel, the young American
confirmed the curative powers
of garlic.
He wanted to verify an
observation cited in the
Talmud: "Garlic kills parasites
in the bowels."
With David Mirelman,
Besen-Brender Professor of
Microbiology and
Parasitology, Varon showed
that allicin, the pungent active
principle in garlic, is a potent
killer of dysentery amoeba in
laboratory cultures.
The 27-year-old Varon at-
tends the SUNY School of
Medicine in Buffalo, NY. He
grew up in Northport, Long
Island, graduated from Tufts,
Dr. Stuart Varon
and did research in tropical
diseases before opting for a
medical career. Last summer,
he took part in the Karyn Kup-
cinet International Science
School program at the Weiz-
mann Institute.
Does he cook with garlic?
You bet.

Yitzak Gamliel is a man upon
whom many people depend
and trust, but as a personality,
is relatively unknown.
Gamliel is a mashgiach.
"Basically, my job is very
simple," Gamliel said. "I am a
As mashgiach at Menorah
Manor in St. Petersburg,
Gamliel is responsible for pro-
tecting and maintaining the
laws of Kashruth throughout
the home. He supervises the
kitchen and the dietary staff,
ensuring that meat and dairy
stay separate.
"I have to supervise all the
employees in the kitchen,"
said Gamliel, who has been at
the home since before it open-
ed two years ago. "New
employees have to understand
the sections in the kitchen and
why we separate it."
The kitchen at Menorah
Manor was designed with meat
preparation located at one end
and dairy at the other. Parve,
neutral food like vegetables
and eggs, is a separate entity.
Dana Guanciale, director of
dietary services, said three
cooks prepare the food one
in meat, one in dairy, and one
in prep. When dietary
employees move from the
dairy to meat section or vice
versa, they are required to
wash their hands and change
Dishwashing is also
separate, and cooking utensils
pots and pans are color coded
for easy identification. This
makes following the laws of
Kashruth easier for the dietary
staff, who Gamliel said adapt
well to the restrictions.
"I have never seen anyone
taking a hamburger and frying
it in butter," he said with a
laugh. "Once it is in the
routine, it is very simple."
Ms. Guanciale, once a novice
to maintaining a kosher kit-
chen, agrees.
"If you're not used to it at
first it is very confusing,
because some things that are
(qualified as) dairy, you
wouldn't think of as dairy, and
the same for meat," she said.
"But it's actually very simple
and the kitchen is set up just
for that."
As a mashgiach, Gamliel
must search through kosher
food directories, checking food
products and ingredients. He
also must make sure all the
food arriving at the home is
kosher. Because the food con-
sumed at Menorah Manor is
usually ordered from the same
suppliers, Gamliel said food
checks are usually confined to
new shipments in case an error
was made in delivery. Food
storage rooms, refrigerators,
coolers and even the coffee
shop comes under the
mashgiach's intense scrutiny.
Gamliel and Rabbi Jacob
Luski, of Congregation B'nai
Israel, are currently preparing
the home for Passover. Rabbi
Luski, who is chairman of
V'Aad Hakashrut, oversees all
aspects of the home's prepara-
tion for Passover. With the
help of dietary and en-
vironmental services, the kit-
chen and all equipment is
dissembled and steam cleaned,
Passover dishes and silver-
ware are brought out and
washed by hand, and the entire
home is given a good scrub.
For all his required
knowledge of Jewish law,
Gamliel received no formal
training for his job as a
mashgiach. Rather, it is a way
of life.

Sholom '
"In my background I learned
in the yeshiva and in a
religious high school, and my
family maintained a strict
kosher home," he said. "I
spent most of my life in Israel,
which is the most kosher state.
Even the Army is kosher. You
live it. You need to learn how
to slaughter animals and you
have to know zoology."
Although the bible lists
kosher and non-kosher
animals, there are some which
are not mentioned, such as
turkey. There are also now
many new food products that
did not exist at the time the bi-
ble was written, like ketchup,
juice and ice cream. It is up to
Gamliel to determine if such
food products are kosher.
A conservative Jew, Gamliel
says maintaining a kosher at-
mosphere comes from the
heart and is an individual
"It is a matter of belief," he
said. "If you believe it is
something absolute, you follow
it. If you believe it is a tradi-
tion and your parents and
grandparents lived it, maybe
you don't want to be responsi-
ble for ruining it, causing the
break in tradition."
Following the dietary laws
of Kashruth at Menorah
Manor is done for the
residents, who deserve the
right to maintain their
religious and personal beliefs.
"The residents, most of
them, would like to return to
the source," Gamliel said.
"They have to relax and know
they are taken care of."

Hillel School of Tampa
"Among the thousands of
tiny things growing up all over
the land, some of them under
my very wing among them
somewhere is the child who
will write the novel that will
stir men's hearts to nobler
issues and incite them to bet-
ter deeds.
There is the child who will
paint the greatest picture or
carve the greatest statue of
the age; another who will
deliver his country in an hour
of peril; another who will give
his life for a great principle;
and another, born more of the
spirit than of the flesh, who
will live continually on the
heights of moral being, and dy-
ing, draw men after him.
It may be that I shall
preserve one of these children
to the race. It is a peg big
enough on which to hang a
hope, for every child born into
the world is a new incarnate
thought of g-d, an ever fresh
radiant possibility."
Kate Douglas Wiggin
At a time when our society is
looking for answers for the
future, and we as parents seek
to achieve our promise of
dedication to the uniqueness of
each child; Hillel offers ex-
cellence in education by sup-
porting the total child in his
progressive movement toward
realizing his full potential.
As parents, we look at our
children to fulfill dreams of the
future. We want them to love
learning, love school, and be
loved. We hope life offers them
the opportunity to be intellec-
tually curious, develop values,
be able to question, and to ex-
perience our living heritage. In
pursuit of these goals, each
family offers the child the op-
portunity to be special and ex-
perience the singularly rewar-
ding relationship that a family
As a family's experiences
are all interrelated, so are the
many aspects of human
development. Physical, social,
cognitive, emotional and
ethical aspects of behavior all
act upon and react to one
another extensively and in-
separably. We cannot produce
any type of change in one area
without giving sufficient con-
sideration to the prerequisite
or consequences in the other
areas of development. All
these areas are interrelated
with culture, physical growth
and psychology of the growing
child to make him/her unique.
It is this uniqueness in each
child that we must provide for
as we select a school with a
distinct educational philosophy
and purpose suited to that
Hillel is a superior academic
institution where excitement
and enthusiasm for learning
are visible daily. Small classes
with individualized instruction
provide a comfortable learning
environment for each child.
The students are offered an in-
tellectual challenge in secular
and Judaic study that builds a
strong foundation for meeting
the expectations and demands
of the best public and private
schools. Hillel school places
heavy emphasis on in-
dividualized study. The
development of responsibility
for learning is shared by the
student. The evidence suppor-
ting its success is apparent by
the standardized test results in
which each class performed
two grades above the national
norms. The statistics tell us
that the majority of day school
graduates, not only excel in
their chosen fields, but go on
to become leaders in their com-
munities as well. With its pro-
ven record of top academic
achievements, Hillel has cer-
tainly equipped its graduates
to succeed in their careers.
The children actively par-
ticipate in extracurricular ac-
tivities, fine arts, community
projects, and sports. We en-
courage our youngsters to care
about each other. Cross-grade
friendships are common, and
there is a sense of nurturing
between older and younger
students. Human values are
held in esteem, and our feel-
ings of "family" are evident to
any visitor.
For students who have had
an extensive background as
well as those with a more
limited one, an individualized
Judaic studies program can be
offered. Integration of Jewish
values with the American
society is conceptualized as
part of the Hebrew program.

After all that has been said about our
innovative bi-cultural program, one thing
is still most important Our students
learn better.
In recent national testing, Hillel School
students finished two years above their
grade level in every category. The table
below indicates that our third graders
read as well as fifth graders. In their
composite scores our children did better
than 96 percent of their peers throughout
the nation.
