Math Competitors ... Students from Berkeley
Preparatory School competed in the 17th annual National
Math Convention in Seattle, Washington recently. There
were 116 students from 13 Florida high school at the con-
vention, and Florida placed third! Some of the math whiz
kids from Berkeley include: David Fleischer, son of Bar-
bara and Frank Fleischer; Josh Kreitzer, son of Dr.
Stephen and Laura Kreitzer; and Mike Stein, son of
Leonore and Frank Stein. You have excelled for your
school and your community and the state of Florida!
Lights, Action, Camera For all of you couch
potatoes and game show enthusiasts, hopefully you tuned
in today to "Sale of the Century" because Bev Yeshion
was a contestant! In case you missed it, she's on again Mon-
day morning and is the big winner again! Without giving
anything else away, Bev does go up to the winner's board
and comes home with some great prizes. And the word
from Bev is that it certainly isn't as easy as it is when you
watch from home. Besides, a week's worth of shows are
taped in part of one day, with short breaks in between.
Still, Bev is very pleased with the results and husband Ted,
and children Sarah and Mikey are very proud! Congratula-
tions! Hooray for Hollywood!
Graduating with Honors Allison Hilf, daughter of
Elaine Simms of Tampa, and Dr. Paul Hilf of Miami
Beach, recently graduated from Oberlin College with a dou-
ble major in economics and government. She received the
Comfort Starr prizes in economics and government, the
Hanson prize in economics for 1986-87 and was the Oberlin
representative at the student conferences at West Point.
Allison is the granddaughter of Lee and Lou Simovitz of
Tampa. Doubly impressive!
How many candles did you say? Can you believe this
one? Shirley Davis has turned the big 5. .0. .! A surprise
party was given in Shirley's honor at the Rusty Pelican's
grand ballroom. Hosting the special event were husband,
Larry Davis, and the couple's children: Debbie and Ron
Hite, from Springfield, 111. and their children, Erica and
Joshua; Rene and Gary LeStrange, from Tampa; and
Rodney Davis, also from Tampa. Adding to the celebration
were out-of-town guests: Shirley's mother, Frances
Gelbsman, from Boca Raton; Shirley's sister, Joan Slavit,
from Middletown, New Jersey; and Shirley's brother and
sister-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Howard, from Oneonta, New
York. Many more happy birthdays and special occasions to
All about Jennifer ... Over the summer, Jennifer
Kalish was chosen by high school coaches to the first all-
state senior softball team. Out of 30 girls on the squad, Jen-
nifer was the only girl chosen first string from Tampa, St.
Petersburg, and Clearwater! The tournament was held in
Brooksville. Jennifer, daughter of Patty and Bill Kalish,
is a freshman at the University of Florida and has become a
pledge of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority. Goooooo Gators!
The Stork certainly has been busy in Tampa ... One
very special delivery the stork made recently was to elated
and ecstatic Francine and Dennis LeVine. Ari Joseph
LeVine was greeted enthusiastically by grandparents
Francine and Brace LeVine, of Tampa, and Clarence and
Christiane Straka, of Parma, Ohio. Great-grandparents of
this precious baby are Dr. Howard and Edith LeVine, of
Chicago; and Great grandmother Germaine Monseu, of
Parma. There are lots of Aunts, Uncles, and cousins in
Tampa, and many were on hand at the bris, which was
hosted by proud parents Francine and Dennis, and grand-
parents Francine and Bruce LeVine. Rabbi Berger and
Cantor Hauben officiated.
Mazel Tov ... Holly and Ira Marx are thrilled to an-
nounce the birth of Judith Dyan, born August 28, weighing
6 lbs. 13 oz. and 19V* inches long. Big sister, Alaine is 2Vz
and very excited. New Jersey grandparents are Edythe
Marx, and Pearl and Louis Falkenstein, and great-
grandmother Rose Anker of New York.
Congratulations and a big welcome to Margo

L. Mark Carron, President Of
Young Adult Division
Imagine a young, articulate
young man, who not only ex-
cells in his profession, but who
also has a strong drive to
enhance the quality of Jewish
life in Tampa. Imagine a man
who, in addition to being an ar-
dent athlete is involved in
numerous volunteer activities
including the Performing
Arts, works many long hours,
and is still making a commit-
ment to the Young Adult Divi-
sion. If you thought about it
for a second, you could think of
no one else but L. Mark Car-
ron, president of the Young
Adult Division.
Mark has been involved with
the Young Adult Division since
its inception and has been a
driving force in building YAD
into a strong division over the
past few years. He was cam-
paign vice president 1985-86,
and he was program vice presi-
dent 1986-87. Under Mark's
College Bound
Through the efforts of the
High School Program of Tem-
ple Schaarai Zedek and
Rodeph Sholom, 11th and 12th
grade college bound students
from both of these congrega-
tions will meet and socialize
with each other while learning
about college life from a
Jewish point of view. The
brunch will be held on Sunday
morning, Oct. 25 from 9:30-11
at Temple Schaarai Zedek,
3303 Swann Avenue.
We are seeking single col-
lege graduates within the last
five years to join us for brunch
and to represent and speak
about your college to these
local high school youth. If in-
terested, please contact: Deb-
bie Hafetz, Rodeph Sholom,

Mark Carron
leadership YAD raised
$10,000 and the organization
made great strides towards
becoming a strong campaign
division. Mark is dedicated
towards making YAD an in-
tegrated program and cam-
paign division.
"The Young Adult Division
is one of the major driving
forces in Tampa," commented
Carron. "Without YAD, young
Jewish people would have
limited avenues for exhibiting
their commitment to Jewish
values and traditions. As this
year's President, I encourage
anyone who is interested in
learning more about YAD to
call me or the Federation or at-
tend any of our informative
programs. Eighty percent of
our events are non-solicitation
activities and I personally in-
vite you to get involved."

A Rabbi's Recollection
"I remember growing up on
the west side of Philadelphia.
It was a one hour schlep each
way on the subway and buses,
twice during the week, and
Sunday from 2 to 6 p.m. Why
did I do it? .. because the
finest courses in Judaica were
at Gratz College in
Philadelphia. Teachers from
all walks of life, Rabbis from
all schools of thought, taught
there," reminisces Rabbi Ken-
neth Berger, an alumnus of
Gratz College.
Originally from
Philadelphia, he received a
bachelor and a masters degree
in sociology at Temple Univer-
sity, and a Bachelor in Hebrew
Literature from Gratz in 1969.
In 1974 he was ordained at the
Reconstructionist Rabbinical
College in Philadelphia.
The reputation that Gratz
holds, commands far greater
respect than we are even
aware of. It is one of five non-
denominationally affiliated col-
leges of Jewish studies. A class
in Talmud may be taught by an
Orthodox Rabbi, while a PhD
in history explains Jewish
history. Gratz offers "dif-
ferent feelings, flavors, views
and perspectives of Judaism."
"Not everyone who goes to
Gratz become rabbis. Most
probably didn't. Gratz gave a
solid background in culture,
language, and civilization
not a career! You really
became turned-on to Jewish
material," says Rabbi Berger.
His own personal impres-
sions are of a "certain
Hevrah," (brotherhood) a
solidarity and closeness with
classmates. All of them had
made a special commitment
for Jewish learning, gaining
respect by taking the best
Jewish studies courses
available anywhere.
"I believe that the opening
of this branch of Gratz College
is the most significant occur-
rence within the framework of
Jewish education done by the
community, since the opening
of Hillel.
Right now, we don't have
anything of this magnitude.
My teacher's certificate enabl-
ed me to teach in any Hebrew
High School in the U.S. and
Canada. Here, we must import
our teachers from the outside
or export people for training,"
remarks Rabbi Berger.
Gratz College offers the
community the opportunity for
all children, from all
movements of Judaism to
learn Hebrew, Torah, Jewish
literature and history. The
teenagers congregate, get to
know each other, and share
from their own backgrounds.
This is just the beginning, As
the courses advance into a full-
fledged program, a teaching
certificate, transfer credit, and
other options will become
available. Rodeph Sholom

Holiday Message
Dear members of the Tampa
Jewish Community:
Another year has past. A
new year with fresh hope and
plans lies ahead.
Our city and state continue
to grow and prosper. The
natural resource of our com-
munity coupled with the hard
work and dedication of our
citizens has brought new in-
dustry, new development, and
continued growth. We've in-
deed been blessed.
But what of our Jewish com-
munity? Do we point to it with
personal pride? Is this the kind
of Jewish community we want
for ourselves ... for our
children ... for our grand-
children? If Tampa is to be our
home, does not each of us need
to devote time, individual ef-
fort, and money to insure that
the Jewish part of our lives is
as fulfilled as the business and
cultural segments. In our com-
plex world, it takes the
organized commitment of all of
us working together to keep
the Jewish people united and
In 5748, let us commit
ourselves to the continual
building of the kind of Jewish
community in Tampa that we
want for our families and to
provide greater support for
Jews in need here at home and
in the state of Israel.
May the new year bring
health, happiness, and peace to
each of you and to all mankind.
Tampa Jewish Federation
Rabbi Kenneth Berger
hopes to offer a scholarship to
the school.
"It is important in a growing
community such as Tampa to
have a place for teens to con-
tinue their Jewish studies,"
explains Berger. "To
strengthen our community,
our own teens must become
more educated about issues,
and only then will they be able
to provide informed Jewish

the Hillel Day School, the
Jewish Community Center and
Jewish Family Services, will
sponsor its second Annual In-
teragency Institute, which will
be co-chaired by F. Sanford

year's program, we want to
continue strengthening com-
munity ties and support," com-
mented Swarzman, who co-
chaired the 1986-87 Institute
with Franci Rudolph. "We
made great strides last year in
improving agency cooperation
and communication and this
year's Institute will carry on
the tradition of excellence we
have in Tampa," added Mahr.
Rabbi Reuven Kimmelman,
Chief Program Associate of
the National Center for Learn-
ing and Leadership (CLAL)
will be the scholar in residence
for the program. Rabbi Kim-
melman is presently Associate

ty. He is a graduate of Yale,
where he received his PhD and
Masters in Religious Studies.

beneficiary agencies look for-
ward to another successful In-

cooperation with congregational rabbis, proudly announce
the establishment of the Jewish Community High School as
a branch of Gratz College of Philadelphia, Department of
Secondary Education.
The program, a first of its kind in Tampa, encompasses
the total Jewish community and offers exposure to high
level Jewish thought. It features a combination of options
to satisfy various needs.
"Teenagers need strong guidance," says Joachim Scharf,
Representative of Gratz College Dept. of Secondary
Education to Tampa Bay area. "The objective of this pro-
gram is to sensitize our youth to the concepts of Judaism on
a teenage level in an exciting and meaningful fashion. To
help strengthen their identity, we must instill knowledge in
major areas such as Jewish thought, history, and
The first session will begin on Oct. 19 and run through
Jan. 20, 1988. Tuition will be set at $75 for each class per
semester or $150 for both classes. Classes will be offered at
the north branch of the Jewish Community Center on
Moran Road and the Hillel School of Tampa on Habana and
Horatio under the administration of Rochelle Lewis, who
will serve as principal.
The north branch class will meet once a week, on Mon-
days from 7:30 to 9 p.m., and open to students in grades 9
through 12. Instructors will be Rabbi H. David Rose of Con-
gregation Kol Ami, assisted by Cantor Vikki Silverman of
the North Tampa Reform Jewish Congregation.
The course taught at the north branch will be: JEWISH
LIFE 22 T'fillah. The course will introduce the students
to the Siddur, using a variety of T'fillot and analyzing them

evening 7-8:30 p.m., at Hillel for students of grades 11 and
12. Rabbis Kenneth Berger and Richard Birnholtz will

The Jewish Calendar. The course introduces the
students to all Jewish holidays and significant events in the
Jewish year, tracing their origins in our sources, and sug-
gesting ways and means to observe them.

Jewish education for pupils having diverse backgrounds,
and further upholds our educational standards. Students

the summer program in Israel, subsidized by the

in Tampa, a culmination of efforts of Federation, the Rab-
binical Association, and the other supportive members of
the Tampa community. It promises not only the excitement
and reputation of the prestigous college, but a promise to
the future for our children.

When Ida Kiseleva recently
saw a video of "Fiddler on the
Roof for the first time in her
son's north Tampa home, she.
cried. The only other time she
had ever heard a concert of
Jewish music had been once in
Russia, and then everyone had
cried, too. At the age of 64, Ida
is beginning a new life in the
United States. Here she is a
refugee; in Russia, she was
called by another name
Eight years ago, Ida and her
husband, Vladimir Sonkin, had
applied to leave Russia and to
come to the United States.
Their son, Dr. Alexander
Sonkin, his wife Marie, and
their tiny daughter were per-
mitted to leave in 1980. Alex-
ander is a physician who now
practices in north Tampa;
Marie is a pianist who played
with the ballet before her
children were born. In addition
to their daughter Anne, they
now have a three-year-old son,
At the time of their applica-
tion to emigrate, Ida and
Vladimir both worked he as
an engineer in a large plant,
and she as an arbitration at-
torney. As soon as they ap-
plied to emigrate from Russia,
Ida's husband was asked to
retire from his job. For eight
years, every six months they
reapplied, and every six mon-
ths they were refused, being
told that Vladimir "knew too
much" to be allowed to leave.
As time went on, they were
forced to move to an apart-
ment that was not as nice as
the one in which they had lived
before. Friends from the plant
found themselves being
threatened. Ida and Vladimir
found themselves to be
political prisoners in their own
land "refuseniks," people
refused emigration from
Vladimir Sonkin was a hand-
some man who had lost one
arm during the war. He had
advanced as far as he could in
his work, advancement that
was stopped only because he
was a Jew. At the age of 55 in
1979, he was forced into an
early retirement; a man used
to being productive was not
allowed to contribute. Ida and
Vladimir lived in Zaporozhye,
a fairly large city of about a
million people in the Ukraine.
They were called frequently by
Alexande and Marie who first
lived in Columbus, Ohio,
before moving to Tampa. Alex-
ander and Marie wrote
cautiously to them, knowing
that letters might be read by
others, and ensuring that they
did not include anything that
could cause problems for Ida
and Vladimir.
Finally, this year the
authorities told Ida she could
leave Russia and come to the
United States, but only after
her husband died from cancer.
He had died at home, with Ida
caring for him. He would not
be accepted into a hospital.
The elderly and unemployed in
Russia seldom even ask to be
hospitalized because they
know they will be refused en-
trance. So little morphine was
made available to Vladimir
that Ida went from door to
door of families who had suf-
fered a recent death in the
hopes that they had morphine
left over which she could give
to her husband to ease his
Ida Kiseleva has maintained
her sense of being Jewish even
though she has never been in-
side of a synagogue, even
though the first Rabbi she ever
met was during her recent trip
to the United States at a stop
in Rome, Italy. She has con-
tinued to have a Jewish identi-
ty even though she was not
allowed to celebrate Jewish
holidays in a whole-hearted
fashion. Ida knows of Simchat
Torah without ever having
seen the Torah carried around
the Temple; she knows of Sue-
cot without ever having had
the joy of building or worshipp-
ing in a succah; she knows
about Passover only from hav-
ing once baked matzot in a
community effort with others,
with whom she shared the
fruits of her labors.
The one bittersweet ingre-
dient of Ida's pilgrimage to the
United States is the fact that
she had to leave her older son,
Michael, and his family in
Russia in order to be with her
younger son, Alexander, here.
In August, 1987, Michael, his
wife, and his teenaged son
were the only ones to see her
off as she left her native
Russia to begin her journey
half-way around the world. Ida
says that she has two goals:
the first is to learn Jewish
history, customs, and religion
so that she really feels that she
"belongs"; the second is her
desire to feel needed. A third
desire, had she stated it, would
have been to have Michael and
his family join her so that her
joy could be complete.

The Birthday of Man
The creation of the world
took six days. Creation started
on the 25th of Elul and ended
on the first of Tishrei, when
man was created. It is
remarkable, therefore, to note
that the anniversary of crea-
tion Rosh Hashanah, or the
beginning of the year was
ordained by our Torah to be
celebrated on the first day of
Tishrei. In other words, the
anniversary of creation is
reckoned not according to the
first day, but according to the
sixth day, the "birthday" of
The significance of the sixth
day, the birthday of man, does
not lie in the fact that another
new creature was added to
creation even if this
creature was one plane higher
than the rest of the animal
kingdom (as the animal is
higher than plant life, and
plants are higher than
minerals). The significance lies
in that the new creature
Man was qualitatively dif-
ferent than others. It was Man
who first recognized the
Creator, as the Midrash
relates: On the Day he was
created, Adam was approach-
Rabbi Yossie Dubrowski
ed by all the animals, who bow-
ed to him in the mistaken
belief, that he, Adam, had
created them. Adam said to
them: "Do you think it is I who
created you? Come, let us wor-
ship, bow down and kneel
before G-d our maker." Thus it
was man who brught to fulfill-
ment G-d's ultimate purpose in
creating the world that the
entire Creation come to
recognize and praise the

from all other creatures is the
free choice of action which G-d
gave him. Unlike the animals,
who blindly follow their inborn
instincts, man has complete
free will which he can use for
either of two purposes: he
may, G-d forbid, choose the
path of self-destruction (and
the destruction of everything
around him). Or, he can choose
the right way of life, the way
of Torah and Mitzvot. Only by
choosing the latter path can he
elevate himself and, like
Adam, elevate the rest of crea-
tion to the highest possible
degree of perfection. Such is
man's birthright; such is his
It is somewhat difficult for
an individual to picture himself
as holding such tremendous
powers of building and
destruction in his grasp. Yet
we have seen, to our sorrow,
what enormous powers of
destruction lie within even a
small quantity of matter when
its inherent or nuclear energy
is released. If such power is
concealed in a small quantity
of matter for destructive pur-
poses (in denial of the design
and purpose of creation), how
much greater must be the la-
tent creative power available
to every individual who tries to
work in harmony with the
Divine purpose!
We have, indeed, been
granted special abilities and
opportunities to attain the goal
for which we were created,
namely, to bring the world to a
state in which, "Each creature
shall recognize that You did
create him, and every
breathing soul shall declare:
'G-d the G-d of Israel is King,
and His reign is supreme over
all.' "
After a year of service to Con-
gregation Schaarai Zedek,
Rabbi Birnholz will be install-

vices and an installation
ceremony, on Friday,
September 18th. Rabbi Harry
K. Danziger of Temple Israel,

Rosh Hashanah Message
Executive Director
TOP Jewish Foundation
For most Jews the High Ho-
ly Days signify a period of per-
sonal reflection on the
previous year. With many
synagogues holding Yom Kip-
pur Pledge Affairs and other
fund-raisers, it is also a time to
review our charitable com-
mitments for the year.
The concept of "tzedakah" is
often mistakenly defined as
charity. In reality, tzedakah
means responsibility, par-
ticularly with regards to our
fellow Jews.
Having served as director of
TOP for a year, I find it per-
sonally gratifying to see the
outstanding generosity of so
many individuals in our com-
munity. Thousands of dollars
have been distributed through
our endowment programs to
support the synagogues,
Jewish Family Services, JCC,
Hillel School, Menorah Manor
and other programs.
TOP is helping the Tampa
Jewish community to provide a
secure financial base for its
future. By planting the seeds
today, our endowments will
bear the fruits of tomorrow to
benefit our elderly, provide for
Jewish education, meet the
needs of our indigent, and
assist other worthwhile pro-
jects and services.
I would like to thank our sup-
porters for their foresight in
establishing endowments
within TOP. I encourage
everyone to open his or her
heart at this time of the year,
and fulfill the duty of
tzedakah. L'shana Tovah!

Personal Advice
Friday, September 18,1987/The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 7-A
Dear Janice:
My nine-year-old daughter
has always had problems in
school. She starts off doing her
homework at the beginning of
the year, but after a couple of
weeks, she begins to slack off,
and by the end of the second
marking period, her grades
start to fall off. Every year,
my husband and I start off en-
couraging her and then nagg-
ing her to do her homework.
After a couple of months, we
get tired of nagging. We know
our daughter has a learning
disability, and some teachers
accommodate for this. My hus-
band wants me to start off this
year by meeting with our
daughter's new teacher. The
problem is, Sonja, our
daughter, has forbidden me to
do this. What do we do?
Mother in Distress
Dear Mother in Distress:
It is important for you to pro-
vide your daughter with a
place to do her homework,
encouragement to do it, and
praise when she does com-
plete her work. However,
ultimately, if she is using
the homework as a tool in a
power struggle with you,
she will always win, and her
grades are a natural conse-
quence of her efforts. How
well or how poorly she does
is her responsibility, not
yours. As far as seeing the
teacher regarding her learn-
ing disability is concerned,
that should be your decision
to make, not your
daughter's. Most teachers
are happy to know that the
parents of a child in their
class are concerned and
cooperative. You will feel
relieved to be sure that
Sonja's teacher is aware of
her learning disabilities,
and Sonja will understand
that she cannot play her
parents against her teacher.
Good luck!
Dear Janice:
My husband and I are luckier
than most people. We will
celebrate our 20th wedding an-
niversary next month,
something most of our friends
1987 A Good Year To Give
Many philanthropists have
been concerned about the im-
pact of the Tax Reform Act on
nonprofit institutions. Ken-
neth Kies, chief tax lawyer for
the Republican Party, recently
addressed the National Society
of Fund Raising Executives
(NSFRE) in Washington, D.C.
on this topic.
Of greatest significance is
the drop in the income tax
rates. The top rate dropped
from 50 percent in 1986 to 38.5
percent in 1987. With rates
dropping again in 1988, non-
profit organizations will be
watching for possible negative
impact in 1989. This year will
once again be an opportune
time to make significant gifts
to nonprofits or to establish
endowments, as the tax deduc-
tion is higher than it will be in
A number of other in-
teresting facts were revealed:
An estimated 6-7 million
taxpayers will be removed
from the tax rolls as their in-
come is too low.
The IRS currently receives
about 700,000 returns from
taxpayers in the over
$200,000 bracket. Of those
people, by 1988 about 300,000
will have tax increases, and
about 400,000 people will have
$50,000 decreases in their an-
nual taxes.
won't ever get to. The problem
we have to face is my sister-in-
law and her husband. They
believe in "milestone" celebra-
tions, and they have made it
clear that they want to help us
celebrate this important an-
niversary with us. My husband
and I would really rather
spend this special time alone,
just the two of us. How do we
tell Herb's sister and her hus-
band that we don't want to
have them with us?
Dear Luckier-than-most:
How about offering your
sister-in-law and hubby an
alternative? You could tell
them that you two really ap-
preciate their sentiments,
but you wish to spend a
romantic evening alone;
could they join you the
following evening, or the
previous evening, to
celebrate together as well?
They should be sensitive to
your wishes and needs, and
this allows them to
celebrate with you as well as
giving you two time alone.
Happy celebrations!

As our preschoolers arrive, they are all eager to meet new
teachers and friends, to explore and discover, to play, to par-

the others in the class through songs, finger play, photographs,
story routines, art experiences and play.
Our 3's and 4's are pros at preschool by now! They are elbow-
deep in playdough, paints, glue, sand, water, blocks,
manipulatives and just about anything else you can think of!
Units on "self and family" and "friends" throughout the
school are helping children feel good about themselves and ease
into the school year happily.
Guests at the North and Main Branch visiting days found our
rooms displayed with housekeeping corners, block corners, art
centers, book areas, listening centers, writing tables, science
tables, toys, manipulative areas and more. And let's not forget
our rabbits, fish and gerbils favorites of our preschoolers!

Kindermusik is a specialized
program of music learning and
enjoyment that has been
designed for Preschool
children and which was
developed about 20 years ago
by a team of musicians, child
development specialists and
child psychologists.
The goal of the Kindermusik
program is to assist in the total
development of the child. With
this in mind, the in-class ac-
tivities are designed to pro-
mote language development,
symbolic thinking, and large
and small motor skill develop-
ment, while awakening the
child's musical imagination.
The children enrolled in
Kindermusik classes meet in a
class of 10-12 students for a
one-hour lesson each week.
The class activities are varied
and well-paced to hold the
children's attention.
The curriculum is spread
over a two-year period con-
taining four semesters. The in-
tention is that the child who

Focus On: Rabbi David Rose, Chairman,
Community Relations Committee
Thousands of Jews are im-
prisoned in the Soviet Union.
Who focuses on the plight of
Soviet Jews? Six thousand
Jews were annihilated during
the Holocaust. Who shall not
forget? Nativity scenes are ex-
hibited in public schools during
Christmas. Who speaks on
behalf of the Tampa Jewish
community? Anti-Israel ar-
ticles appeared on the editorial
pages of the Tampa Tribune.
Who writes to the editor to in-
form him of the facts? While
many people in Tampa's
Jewish community believe that
Federation is solely a fundrais-
ing organization, the reality is
that its scope is much broader.
Under the leadership of Rabbi
H. David Rose, who chairs the
Community Relations Commit-
tee of the Tampa Jewish
Federation, one gets the sense
that Federation is not only
concerned with Jewish fun-
draising, but with Jewish
The CRC has several goals,
according to Rabbi Rose.
"CRC is concerned with
educating the Jewish and non-
Jewish community about perti-
nent issues affecting our sur-
vival; CRC is committed to
building coalitions with non-
Jewish organizations and
groups to improve human rela-

Rabbi David Rose
tions; CRC is an advocate for
our local Jewish community;
and CRC strives to achieve
consensus amongst the leader-
ship of the community."
Rabbi Rose, who is the Rabbi
for Congregation Kol Ami has
been in Tampa for two years.
During 1986-87, he served as
the co-chairman of the Com-
munity Relations Committee.
Rabbi Rose has been involved
in many community issues in-
cluding, enhancing interfaith
relations, Black/Jewish
dialogues, police relations, and
the Holocaust remembrance.
During his tenure in Tampa,
he, along with his co-chairman
Dr. Ron Pross, has observed
the community closely and has
helped CRC identify three
critical areas.
The Soviet Jewry Task
Force of the CRC, chaired by
Betty Shalett and Judge Ber-
nie Kune will fill a void in our
local community. The Task
Force will provide the vehicle
to advocate human rights of
Soviet Jews through action
and through programming.
The Government Affairs Task
Force, chaired by Linda Golds-
tein, will help build bonds bet-
ween Tampa's Jewish leader-
ship and local legislators. The
Community Education Task
Force, co-chaired by Judge
Ralph Steinberg and Lois
Frank will focus on Yom
Hashoah and an educational
program which will give the
community a broader perspec-
tive of what issues affect
Jewish longevity, that is,
Israel, Church/State separa-
tion, and media relations.
Anyone in the community
who is interested in serving on
a CRC Task Force is encourag-
ed to contact the Federation,

Republicans Join Drive To Repeal Services Tax
After meeting with Gover-
nor Bob Martinez and
Republican leaders in the
Florida Legislature, Rep.
Dave Thomas (R-Englewood)
said recently he is even more
determined to "flat-out
repeal" the state Services Tax.
But while Gov. Martinez has
been pursuing the idea of a
statewide referendum on the
Services Tax, Thomas said he
continues to encourage repeal
of the statute.
"I met with the governor for
about an hour at his home, and
with the Republican legislators
and Republican policy
makers," said Thomas.

need a constitutional referen-

ability to repeal the tax with
61 votes in the house and 20 in
the senate. We don't need a
three-fifths majority of both
houses to repeal the tax, which
is what a constitutional
amendment would require."
Thomas says he would ask
the governor to convene a
single special session to con-
sider the Services Tax issue as
well as the problem of access
to emergency medical care.
"It's terribly irresponsible
for the leaders of the house
and the senate and the ex-
ecutive branch to call a special
session to deal exclusively with
a taxing issue when we have
residents of Florida not being
able to get emergency medical
care," Thomas said.

Poets and philosophers
seldom praise death; they
work hard at staying alive.
The old and sick, with great
tenacity, clutch at the slipping
rope of life.
The poets shout from the
rooftops that death is what
gives life its preciousness, its
value. That it is the condition
on which life exists. Immortali-
ty on earth would be a worse
lot than death. Death is the
great liberator that sets one
free to return to the bosom of
nature, to roll through eternity
with stones, rocks and trees.
The great law-giver, Moses,
said, "I have placed before you
this day life and death choose
ye therefore life."
The author of Ecclesiastes
sees death as the last injustice
in the futile and unjust parade
of existence.
Job regards death as a
catastrophe which has the sole
virtue of ending all
catastrophe. Death is an evil
because it cuts off light and life
and most of all perhaps
because it is mysterious, an
IN THE FACE of all these
pronouncements concerning
death, we raise the question:
How can there exist an evil
like death in a world created
by a God whose major at-
tribute is Goodness? If there is
a good and just Supreme
Power ruling this world how
can the sum of man's life result
in what seems an unjust
balance of deeds and
If death came as the black
line at the bottom of an even
balance of deeds and misdeeds,
one could perhaps understand.
Perhaps, and I say perhaps,
the answer is: The time from
birth to death is too short an
accounting period. One
lifetime is but a part of a long
series of lives. Any apparent

injustices in this life balance
out not with deeds of misdeeds
of this life alone, but with a
combination of acts and
destinies of previous incarna-
tions. We stretch the accoun-
ting period into the unknown
past before our birth into this
known world of existence.
This theory or line of reason-
ing is found in Kabalah and is
called "Gilgal," reincarnation.
For those who do not believe
in reincarnation, in the
Kabalistic sense of "gilgal,"
stretch man's accounting
period into the mysterious
future beyond death to a
"hereafter," another world
"Olam Habu" where deeds
and consequences are at last
For that very reason,
because death brings with it
many unsolved questions, I
propose to dwell on the subject
and bring my readers some
historical and traditional
answers from the Talmud and
ancient sources of Judaism.
OUR RABBIS relate the
following story concerning the
"Chofetz Chayim" of blessed
A well-to-do merchant
traveled far to visit the great
Sage "Chafetz Chayim," who
lived in the small town of
Radin. He checked into the
small and only hotel in town,
then went to see the rabbi.
When he entered, he was
dismayed to see the simple
though neat appearance of the
room and furnishings.
After the customary Sholom
Alichem (greetings), the mer-
chant expressed surprise con-
cerning the poor dwelling, its
furniture and contents. He
asked to be granted permis-
sion to contribute whatever
was necessary to build a new
house and furnish it as would
befit such a great rabbi in
The sage expressed his
gratitude but declined the of-
fer. "Tell me," he said, "in the
hotel where you are now ren-
ting a room, how is it furnish-
ed, is it not very simple, a bed,
a chair, a table and a dresser
with a mirror? How is it that
such a rich and prosperous
man has such poor
THE RICH merchant
answered, "At home, I have
much more and quite expen-
sive furniture, but here I am
"unterwegs," (in transit,
enroute and therefore a few
simple pieces of furniture will
suffice temporarily." The rab-
bi replied, "You have
answered your own question, I
too am "unterwegs," I too am
only temporarily here on earth
and this is enough."
We are all residing but tem-
porarily in this world, "For
Dust Thou Art, and Unto Dust
Shalt Thou Return," is a
quotation of everlasting truth.
Decent burial was regarded
to be of great importance in
ancient Israel. Amongst the
Mesopotamians with whom the
Israelites dwelt, one of the
most frequently employed
harsh remarks was, "May the
earth refuse to receive your
The Torah stresses the fear
of being left unburied. "And
thy body shall become food un-
to the fowl of the heavens and
unto the beasts of the earth,
with no one to scare them
away." (Deuteronomy 28:26)
OUR FIRST patriarch,
Father Abraham purchased
the cave at Machpela as a fami-
ly tomb. "And the field, with
the cave that is therein, was
made sure unto Abraham, for
a possession as a burying place
by the sons of Cheth." (Gen.
To give a decent burial to a
stranger ranks equal with giv-
ing bread to the hungry and
garments to clothe the naked .
"And I gave my clothes to the
naked; and if I saw any dead I
buried them." (Tobias 1:17-18)
In Israel, there was the com-
mon human desire to maintain
some contact with the living
even after death, through
burial in one's native land and
if possible with one's family.
Our father Jacob requested:
"And he (Jacob) charged them
and unto them; I am to be
gathered unto my people, bury
me near my fathers in the cave
that is in the field of Ephrom
the Hittite." (Gen. U9:29)
THE TOMB most typical of
te Israelites period is a natural
cave or a chamber cut into soft
rock. Bodies would be placed
on rock shelves provided on
three sides of the chamber or
on the floor. As generations of
the same family used the tomb,
skeletons were moved to the
sides or put into a side
chamber to make room for
new burials.
In Talmudic times, burial
took place in caves, hewn
tombs, sarcophagi and
catacombs and a reinterment
of the bones (Likut Atchumot)
took place about one year after
the original burial in ossuaries.
(Maimon, Yad Uvel 12:8)
Maimonides mentions the
customes of burial in a wooden
coffin. Customs of placing ink
and pen besides a deceased
bridegroom, a key and book of
accounts beside a childless
man, placing lamps in graves,
burying personal effects of
nobles with the body, have
completely disappeared.

With the stock market
reaching unprecedented all-

time to fulfill your Federation
commitments, or consider
opening an endowment fund
within the TOP Jewish
A rising stock market such
as we have recently experienc-
ed affords contributors an op-
portunity to cash in on profits
and reap substantial savings in
taxes by donating appreciated
securities to the Federation
Campaign or to TOP. Further-
more, contributions of
securities made in 1987 will
yield greater tax savings this
year than in 1988 since tax
rates in 1987 are higher than
they will be in 1988.
If you have held securities
for more than six months and
they have grown in value, the
current law allows you to con-
tribute them to TOP and
receive a tax deduction for the
appreciated value. (Certain
contributors may be subject to
the alternative minimum tax.
We suggest that you check
with your tax advisor as to its
impact and applicability in
your case.) Contributing ap-
preciated securities in 1987
will help you and in turn help

5747 ... The Year In Review
Jews argued throughout 5747,
perhaps more than during any
recent year. As individuals and
organizations, Jews took on
adversaries and perceived
adversaries of Israel and
Jewry, and no less
vociferously each other.
Some of the talk only
threatened action, such as
Israel's oft-endangered na-
tional unity government that
held together through the
rotation of the premiership,
and afterward despite con-
flicts over the budget and the
proposed international
Mideast peace conference.
Other talk was in reaction to
events. Pope John Paul was
said to be good to the Jews,
then bad, then was willing to
converse, although to whom
was the subject of well-
publicized U.S. Jewish in-
fighting through most of
August. It's not yet wholly
clear what the papal meeting
with Jewish delegates finally
Still other talk during 5747
was intended to spur action.
Diaspora Jewish leaders,
asserting themselves in Israel
more than ever, successfully
lobbied against changing laws
that define Jewish identity for
fimposes of Israeli citizenship,
ndeed, the debate over what
or who defines
Jewishness continued to vex
the Jewish world.
Many other events took
place despite what Jews had to
say. More Soviet Jewsi
4,696 than at any time over
the last five years emigrated in
just the first eight months of
1987, but tens of thousands
more, perhaps 400,000, wish

process and are able to
relocate in the United States.
This is a very serious problem,
not only economically, but
culturally. They need spiritual
support during this difficult
time in their lives, and JDC is
offering this support."
There is a great deal of anx-
iety and tension in the life of a
transmigrant, caused by the
many questions he cannot
answer: When will he relocate?
And where? How will he learn
a new language? What will
happen to his professional
skills in the new country? Will
he be able to adapt to a new
and unfamiliar culture?
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee pro-
vides care and support to the
transmigrants in Ladispoli,
consisting of medical and
social services, Jewish educa-
tion and cultural and religious
activities. Despite these
Jewish communal efforts and
the moral support of their
brethren, time weighs heavily
on the transmigrant: the
longer the wait, the deeper the
To help ease some of the ten-
sions generated by these very
real questions, JDC provides a
comprehensive cultural sup-
port program to the
transmigrants. They can use
the in study time in Ladispoli
to learn English as well as
Jewish values which they may
not have been able to express
for years, perhaps for genera-
tions. JDC has established
clubs to ease the long stay,
providing leisure-time ac-
tivities and informal courses.
During the last six months,
there has been a dramatic in-
crease in the number of people
assisted by this program.
While only 550 people were
helped in Ladispoli in 1986, the
projected number for 1987 is
more than 6,000! As Heinz Ep-
pler, President of AJJDC, has
"We have intensified our ac-
tivities, helped to find housing,
met medical needs and arrang-
ed for schooling; costs are
high, but we cannot foresake

The work of volunteers can
be very valuable in supplemen-
ting the efforts of JDC person-
nel in Ladispoli. To this end,
JDC has adopted a volunteer
program, The Jewish Service
Corps, that invites profes-
sionals from abroad to work
alongside JDC Staff.
Two of the American
volunteers that arrived in
Rome this month are David

therapy at LaGuardia College,
who earned her doctorate from
Columbia Pacific University
and has more than 30 years ex-
perience in her field. Her hus-

who received his Master's
degree in education from CW

WASHINGTON, D.C. The Palestine Liberation

United States State Department, climaxing a long and dif-
ficult campaign to end its activities on behalf of the PLO

within 30 days of this week's directive.
James E. Nolan, director of the State Department's Of-

In a State Department briefing, spokesman Charles E.
Redman said the order will not include the PLO observer
mission at the United Nations.
He said the United States is "particularly disturbed by
the PLO's ongoing links to terrorism, incuding membership
on the PLO executive committee of Mohammed Abas." He
is said to be prime mover in the 1985 hijacking of thelltalian
cruise ship Achille Lauro. The murder of an America Jew
during the seizure has been traced to Abbas by U.S. and
Israeli intelligence services.
Redman also cited contacts between the PLO and
master terrorist Sabry al-Banna, better known as Abu
Nidal, and the participation by Syrian-backed factions of
the PLO in ongoing terrorism.

David Rozenzweig
Sr. V.P. Branch Mgr.
Likud Minister-Without-
Portfolio Moshe Arens (Herat)
handed his resignation to
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
Wednesday night (Sept. 2)
after a Likud ministerial
caucus on the Lavi issue.
Even though the Likud
Ministers resolved to "fight"
the cabinet decision scrapping
the Lavi project Arens went
ahead with his threatened
resignation. He is understood
to believe that the Likud
Ministers' resolution was
largely declarative and would
not in fact lead to a re-vote in
the Cabinet.
Labor Ministers, meanwhile,
meeting separately, came out
firmly against any attempt to
procure a Cabinet re-vote.
Labor sources said the party
would resist any such effort by
insisting that the issue go to
the Inner Cabinet where,
with Likud's Moshe Nissim,
Minister of Finance, voting
against the plane, the Lavi
would once again be defeated.
Nissim did not attend the
Likud ministerial caucus
Wednesday evening at
Shamir's home a clear in-
dication of the strains between
himself and his colleagues, all
of whom voted against Sun-
day's cabinet decision.
Sources close to Nissim
repeated Wednesday that he
would instantly resign his post
if the Prime Minister sought to
Kut pressure on him to change
is position on the Lavi.
Nissim himself has refused to
address in public the possibili-
ty of his being pressured, or
even dismissed, by Shamir.
But he has continued spiritedly
to defend his stance against
the Lavi project, on both
economic and defense-related
The Likud Ministers, in their
resolution, claimed that the
proposal put forward Sunday
by Vice Premier Shimon
Moshe Arens
Peres, which received a 13-12
vote in the Cabinet, had been
inadequately prepared.''
Privately, Likud sources
have attacked Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin for
"feeding the Cabinet
misleading information." This
has been said in reaction to
Rabin's impassioned defense,
on television Monday night, of
the Cabinet decision to stop
the Lavi project and devote
the same U.S. aid funds to
other vital Israel Defense
Force proposed projects.
j. Trade and Industry Minister
^Xriel Sharon told reporters
after the Likud Ministers'
caucus that their resolution
would mean "finding ways of
delaying implementation of
the Cabinet decision ... We
can now see that the Cabinet
decision was not based on firm
Sharon and Arens reported-
ly demanded at the caucus that
Shamir dismiss Nissim and
possibly "go to the country"
over the Lavi issue. The
Premier, however, is said to be
firmly against early elections,
and insiders say he is also op-
posed to trying to obtain a
Cabinet re-vote on the Lavi,
since success for the Likud
would be unlikely.

Greetings For The Year 5748
From The Ambassador Of Israel To The United States
Rosh Hashanah has, for time
immemorial, meant for Jewish
people a new spiritual and
moral beginning. This Rosh
Hashanah, moreover, in-
augurates a year of worldwide
celebration of Israel's 40th an-
niversary. It will thus serve as
an occasion to contemplate the
historic significance of Israel's
creative survival against dif-
Israel, Hungary
Open Relations
and Hungary signed an agree-
ment in Bern to establish in-
terest sections in their respec-
tive countries. It is the lowest
level of diplomatic representa-
tion but could be a precursor to
stronger ties in the future.
The signing ceremonies,
which lasted an hour, were
held in private. At the request
of the Hungarians, no media
was allowed. The Israeli par-
ticipants were Yeshayahu
Anug, Deputy Director
General 01 the Foreign
Ministry, legal adviser Victor
Harel, and Israel's Am-
bassador to Switzerland,
David Rivlin.
Hungary was represented by
Yanos Goros, head of the legal
department at the Foreign
Ministry, and Wiimos
Kopanyi, head of the political
ficult odds, and the meaning
and value of the Jewish State
to the Jewish people.
I am therefore delighted to
have this special opportunity,
as I begin my tour of duty as
Ambassador of Israel to the
United States, not only to ex-
tend Rosh Hashanah greetings
to the American Jewish com-
munity, but to express my pro-
found appreciation of the
powerful ties of kinship and
mutuality, of history and
spirit, that bind us and make
us one people.
It is my fervent desire and
determined intention to
establish close ties with
American Jewry, and to help
intensify and deepen those
bonds and the dialogue bet-
ween Israel and the Jews of
I am proud and privileged to
represent the State of Israel in
the United States. Never have
the ties between our two coun-
tries politically, economical-
ly, strategically been so
close and so far-reaching.
It is a source of immense
gratification that in these 40
years the United States and
Israel have forged an un-
breakable relationship of
friendship and understanding
grounded in the basic values
and institutions of a free socie-
ty and an open democracy
which we share. I trust that
this relationship will grow ever
stronger in the years ahead,
and I will do all in my power
toward that end.
These four decades have
demonstrated the many
variegated ways in which
Israel and American Jewry are
intimately connected. Many
bonds unites us Jewish
culture and education, the
American Jewish community's
contribution to the social and
educational sectors of Israeli
life, intellectual dialogues and
forums, the development of
youth projects, visits and
In these 40 years, a broad
realization has grown that
there is no agenda for Jewish
life without recognition of the
centrality of Israel. Israel
having achieved what many
thought was unachievable and
never shirking from even the
most difficult of challenges
has filled Jewish hearts
everywhere with pride. Jews
in the United States and
elsewhere are unified by a firm
bond of solidarity and iden-
tification with Jewish
sovereignty and nationhood.
All of these create a web of
relations and ties that unite us,
enrich our lives, and ensure
the vigorous continuity not on-
ly of Israel but also of
American Jewry.
Despite the geographical
distance between us, we are
united by our Jewish tradition
and spirit, which are embodied
in the moral significance of the
High Holidays. We are all
Jews together the Jewish
State and the Jewish people
bound by a unity of purpose
and vision and hope. And we

This ardent desire of ours
for ever more visits by
American Jews is most ap-
propriately symbolized in this
season by the joyous declara-
tion that concludes the tradi-
tional liturgy of Yom Kippur:
intend to remain united.
That unity can only be
bolstered by a great expansion
in the number of American
Jews who come to visit Israel
and experience the vibrancy of
our life. This can only further
cement the bonds of
understanding and mutuality
that unite us.

Computer Kids Of The Negev *"Q^Vj ^Jj^KS
The sleepy, remote develop-
ment town of Yeruham in the
Negev is not usually associated
with technological innovation
and scientific knowhow. But if
local resident, Dr. Miriam
Cohen, senior lecturer in the
Department of Mathematics
and Computer Sciences at Ben
Gurion University of the
Negev in Beer-Sheeva, has her
way, unemployment-plagued
Yeruham may become 'com-
puter town.' Her pet project, a
computer summer-camp for
eight-to-fourteen year olds,
was held this year for the fifth
time. It grew out of an after-
school computer club she
started, utilizing computers
purchased for the local school
system by the Jewish Agency's
Project Renewal. The two-
week camp is open to
youngsters from other parts of
Israel who stay with local
families, and the Yeruham
campers take pride in playing
host and in proving that their
town has something valuable
to offer.
The chief instructor at the
camp, U.S.-born Chaim
Goldberg, who is working for a
masters degree in industrial
engineering at Ben-Gurion
University, arrived in
Yeruham two years ago with a
BS from Yale. Like many
other members of the faculty
and student body of the
univesity, he was eager to
become involved in community
action in the Negev. He has set
up a small firm for producing
computer aids (with a partner)
and also teaches at the local
high school. In his classroom, a
group of enthusiastic boys and
girls sit around a small robot,
of a type commonly used on
sophisticated industrial pro-
duction lines. They have pro-
grammed it to pick up a salt
shaker, sprinkle salt, pick up a
cloth and wipe the table.
The other instructor, Meir
Elmishali, a graduate of
BGU's Mathematics Depart-
ment, was born in the Negev
development town of Dimona
and teaches mathematics at its
high school. The eight-year-
olds in his group, most from
disadvantaged backgrounds,
are busily programming the
computer to draw amusing
shapes. Meir takes pride in the
fact that in computer studies,
at least, these children are
starting out on an equal
footing with more privileged
Dr. Miriam Cohen sees the
computer industry as an ideal
project for Yeruham, since it
does not require a complicated
infrastructure nor
geographical proximity to the
center of the country. Miriam,
who was named 'Beautiful
Israeli of the Year' by a
leading Israeli women's
magazine for her community
work in Yeruham, is planning
ahead to a 'software center'
able to supply services to
clients all over the country.
Yeruham will provide the
talent and BGU's dedicated
faculty and students will show
the way.

Coalition Asks
Graham To
Oppose Judge Bork
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
A coalition of major
(organizations including
[American Jewish Congress,
the National Organization of
[Women, the National
[Lawyers' Guild and the
[American Civil Liberties
| Union, met with Senator Bob
Graham (D-Fla.) to express op-
position to the nomination of
[judge Robert Bork to the
| Supreme Court. The session
was held recently in Graham's
I Miami office.
The coalition, which was
organized by Michael D. Ray,
I president of the South Florida
Chapter of the National
Lawyers' Guild, also included
the NAACP and the AFL-CIO.
A press conference at the Paul
Walter Mini-Park followed the
19 a.m. meeting.
The Miami discussion came
I in the wake of widespread op-
position to President Reagan's
nomination of Judge Bork.
JHadassah, the Women's
[Zionist Organization of
America, with 385,000
members nationwide, has
[broken with its tradition of
[neither opposing nor endors-
ing political candidates or
presidential appointees by
/oting unanimously to oppose
9ork s candidacy for the
Jupreme Court.
"People are alarmed by the
lomination of Judge Bork,
scause they think he will
change the nature of the court,
id make it far less liberal
than it was," Ray said.
"Bork would replace Justice
[Powell, who is retiring, and
[Powell was considered a swing
[vote in issues involving in-
dividual liberties," Ray
I asserted.
Supreme Court justices are
nominated by the President,
after which the Senate
Judiciary Committee makes a
recommendation to the entire
Senate, which votes to either
accept or reject the
Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.),
chairman of the Judiciary
Committee, commissioned a
report on Bork, and has come
out against him. The commit-
tee began hearings Tuesday,
Sept. 15.
"There's lots of disinforma-
tion going on," Ray contends.
"The White House would have
the public believe that Bork is
for judicial restraint, and for
giving deference to legislative
intent on issues, but the fact is
that his opinions show that this
is not true.
"He will defer to legislative
intent only if he agrees with
the outcome of the case, and
the same goes for judicial
restraint," says Ray, citing the
case of Planned Parenthood
Vs. Heckler in 1983, when
Bork ruled that minors had to
have parental consent before
receiving contraceptives from
family planning centers.
"Congressional intent was
to improve access of minors to
family planning services, in-
cluding contraceptives," says
It is the role of the Supreme
Court to interpret laws passed
by the legislative branch of the
government, but opinions vary
on how the court should exer-
cise this function.
The White House has issued
a release defining "the judicial
restraint view," seen by some
as restricting Supreme Court
Justices from writing orders
and opinions based on their in-
terpretations of laws passed
by Congress and the states.
But Ray argues that Bork,
who states that he is a propo-
nent of judicial restraint, "will
even find new interpretations
of the Constitution to support
his argument if there's a case
which involves protecting or
increasing the rights of multi-
national corporations, even if
his interpretations come into
conflict with Supreme Court
precedents or settled
Says Ray, "Bork criticizes
the three-department system
of government, which is a
system of checks and balances.
He has said that if a war is
started, it should be up to the
executive branch, and that the
legislative branch should not
"Congress can start or end a
war," explains Ray, "but Bork
has questioned its Constitu-
tional right to place a check on
the executive branch while a
war is in progress. That would
mean that the executive
branch could do whatever it
wanted during a war."
The War Powers Act limits
the President's right to deploy
troops unilaterally, acting on
his own without Congressional
consent or input. According to
Ray, Bork has stated that the
War Powers Act is "probably
"Bork even said in one case
that it's all right for congress
to make a law that would
eliminate the right of any
federal court to review a con-
stitutional challenge of
presidential action," which,
Ray points out, "would mean
that if the President were do-
ing anything unconstitutional,
as in the firing of a special
Watergate prosecutor, no
court would have the right to

Stadium to be buUt in Jerusalem. Sign behind
Mayor Kollek demands permission signatures
from Prime Minister and the Inter for
challenge that action."
Bork maintained this posi-
tion during the Watergate
trial, Ray adds.
"What all this means is that
the government could spy on
you, infringe on your privacy,
violate your first amendment
and constitutional rights, and
you could not challenge its
behavior in court," contends
Ray. "That's exactly like the
McCarthy era or like a
totalitarian society," Ray
maintains. "That's the op-
posite of democracy."
The issue of Bork's nomina-
tion, Ray believes, is not an
issue of Republican vs.
Democrat, or conservative vs.
"Senator Graham said at the
conference that deciding
whether or not to oppose
Bork's nomination is probably
the most important decision of
his career as a senator," re-
counts Ray, who calls Bork's
nomination "a danger to
everyone, liberal, Democrat,
Republican, and
Supreme Court Justices re-
tain their positions for life, or
until they retire, and "Bork
could effect the outcome of
Supreme Court decisions and
our system of justice for the
next 20 to 30 years," Ray
points out.
A statement issued by
Hadassah opposing Bork's
nominations says that "Judge
Bork has expressed support
for prayer in the public schools
and public funding of private
religious schools ... and has
indicated that he would uphold
the authority of states and
localities to ban the use of con-
traceptives by married
As President Reagan
prepares to leave his final term
in the White House, he is
nominating a candidate for the
Supreme Court who will re-
main as a legacy for many
years to come.
The question is, what kind of
legacy would Bork be?

Scholar Concerned
Over Emergence Of
Anti-Semitic Soviet Group
emergence in the Soviet Union
of a chauvinistic, anti-Semitic
organization reminiscent of
the Black Hundreds of Czarist
times is a potentially disturb-
ing new phenomenon on the
Soviet scene, says a report by
the Institute of Jewish Affairs,
research arm of the World
Jewish Congress.
The organization is Pamyat
Russian for memory the
most influential of a number of
so-called historical and
patriotic associations which
have surfaced in the USSR
during the period of
"glasnost" (openness) ordain-
ed by Party Secretary Mikhail
Dr. Howard Spier, an IJA
research officer, prefaces his
study of Pamyat by saying its
character and aims raise ques-
tions fundamental to the
nature of Soviet society.
The organization achieved
prominence after an apparent-
ly spontaneous demonstration
in a central Moscow square on
May 6. About 400
demonstrators marched
toward the Moscow City
Soviet, with banners condemn-
ing Gorbachev's restructuring
program and demanding a
meeting with Gorbachev and
the Moscow Party Chief.
Since then, a succession of
vituperative attacks on
Pamyat has appeared in some
leading Soviet newspapers,
suggesting that it had struck a
nerve in Soviet public opinion.
According to Soviet press
reports, Pamyat was founded
in 1980 by a number of
employees of the Soviet
Ministry of Aviation Industry
with the aim of preserving
Moscow's historical and
cultural monuments in the face
of official indifference.
However, Pamyat's objec-
tives had apparently changed
as it was increasingly
penetrated by fanatical
believers in Great Russian na-
tionalism who also had
xenophobic hang-ups about the
supposed Zionist-Masonic con-
spiracy against the Russian
This echoes the rallying cry
of the Black Hundreds
organization, the union of the
Russian people, the reac-
tionary monarchist and anti-
Semitic body which bought
against reforms following the
1905 revolution.

JNF Saves Hundreds Of Acres
By Innovative Tree Planting
NEGEV, Israel Hundreds
of acres of fertile soil would be
washed into the sea each year
were it not for the innovative
use of trees by the Jewish Na-
tional Fund.
Standing at the edge of a
northern Negev wheat field
that is crumbling into a rain-
formed gully, Eli Kliegler, the
JNF's head of planning for the
south of Israel, explained to
the JTA how trees can stop the
The JNF, best known for its
extensive afforestation pro-
jects all over the country, has
been planting trees to stop soil
erosion for more than 20
years. Kliegler notes that the
increasing sophistication of
erosion-prevention techniques
means JNF planners interfere
with nature less.
"Once we thought we could
just level the gullies and
dispense with the problem that
way," Kliegler explains. "But
nature was stronger than us."
The rain of the northern
Negev 9.6 to 16 inches a
year falls in short, heavy
downpours, and the water can-
not all be absorbed by the
light, sand-colored loess (fer-
tile clay-like) soil. Forcing
itself into cracks in the earth,
the water erodes the fine soil
as it flows toward the sea.
Aerial photos of one field
taken 10 years ago show a flat
area. Now the field is crossed
by a branching gash, a gully
more than a yard deep and
about a yard wide, that leads
to a neighboring gully that
connects to a central wadi 30
or 40 yards away. That wadi is
a dry river bed in the summer,
but a rushing torrent during
the rainy season.
The gullies grow two to
three yards a year. Several in-
ches from their edges, the field
is criss-crossed with cracks,
and soil falls away with the
slightest prod.
As Kliegler explains, the
gullies not only steal valuable
farm land, but can grow so
relentlessly that it can even at-
tack a road alongside the field,
eventually slicing the road in
The rich topsoil that enabled
the former desert of the nor-
thwest Negev to become a fer-
tile agricultural area is washed
away down the gullies to the
wadi and on to the sea. All that
is left is a chalky, salty surface
inhospitable even to thistles.
The JNF has managed to
stop this erosion by planting
trees on the internal slopes of
the gullies. The trees ap-
parently hold the sides in place
and prevent them from exten-
ding. JNF plants quick-
growing eucalyptus where it
will take, but some of the
slopes are so eroded that only
the hardy Jerusalem pine
At the very edges of the
gullies, JNF plants cypresses
and other trees that have roots
less invasive than those of the
eucalyptus and will not
damage the adjacent arable
The floor of the gully is
deliberately left clear to allow
the rain to flow freely. "Other-
wise it would just form
another gully," Kliegler says.
Sometimes a simple wooden
dam is built at the head of the
gully to keep back the soil,
while allowing the water to
run down.
The JNF locates the trouble
spots, and, providing the kib-
butz or moshav that farms the
land accepts the long-term
benefits of erosion prevention,
proceeds to plan the new plan-
ting project together with the
Land Conservation Depart-
ment of the Agriculture
First they commission aerial
photos, then develop a detailed
guide to the area. Only after-
ward do they bring in the
heavy tractors to prepare the
slopes for planting.
The JNF plants about a
thousand acres a year in its ef-
fort to fight erosion. That in-
cludes about a hundred acres

take the previous year, and

DETROIT (JTA) A third butcher shop has closed
here in a year, leaving nine, with one butcher worried that
only a third of those stores will survive.
Franklin Kosher Meats of West Bloomfield, Mich., went
out of business because of high costs, including rent, Rabbi
Chaskell Grubner of the Council of Orthodox Rabbis of
Greater Detroit told the Jewish News.
Allan Cohen, president of the Detroit Area Kosher Retail

weakened here. He cited the increase in working women,
meaning more "pre-cooked" or restaurant meals; artificial-
ly high prices; the decreasing number of wholesale sup-
pliers; and policies of the rabbis' council.

Horrors Of Holocaust Now Hit Survivors
TEL AVIV The delayed
reactions by many Holocaust
survivors to the trauma of four
decades past is increasingly a
problem for them, and the
focus of researchers here.
A recent seminar on "Ef-
fects of the Holocaust on the
Aging Population," organized
for professionals working with
the elderly by Jerusalem's
Shaare Zedek Hospital
Geriatric Institute and
Emunah College, surveyed the
latest effects of imprisonment
in the camps. It also examined
"survivors syndrome,"
whereby the delayed effects of
Holocaust trauma surface only
decades later.
Speakers noted that
memories became more vivid
later in life, and some elderly
Holocaust survivors begin to
relive their war horrors, bring-
ing back long-repressed
memories. They often suffer
physical and mental
breakdowns, self-imposed
social isolation or even suicidal
They become people without
loyalties, feeling stateless and
culture-less. They lack a sense
of personal identity. Most are
unable to share their ex-
periences with their spouses
and children, and are afraid to
Dr. Henry Shor, a senior
psychiatrist at Shalvata
Hospital, explained that some
patients he had treated for
severe depression, apathy or
psychoses were reacting to
World War II experiences they
had managed to repress.
He said that during the war
these people had used all their
physical and emotional
strength to deal with emergen-
cies at hand. "Even mourning
was a luxury that no one could
afford at the time if he wanted
to survive," Shor explained.
After the war, he said, while
trying to rebuild their broken
lives many became
"workaholics," escaping into
their jobs to flee from the past.
They married or remarried,
raised children and tried to
Thus, retirement can be
especially traumatic for the
survivor. The halt of regular
work often leads to total men-
tal or physical breakdown, the
researchers said.
Dr. Tikva Natan of Haifa
University noted that the price

with survivors tending to
"deaden" their feelings and

either protective, fearful,
smothering parents with
unusually high expectations
or, on the other hand,

about the guilt harbored by
Holocaust victims often for
decades. "They try to push

The Council of Jewish
Federations is the national
association of 200 Jewish
Federations, the central com-
munity organizations which
serve nearly 800 localities em-
bracing a Jewish population of
more than 5.7 million in the
United States and Canada.
Established in 1932, CJF
helps strengthen the work and
the impact of Jewish Federa-
tions by developing programs
to meet changing needs, pro-
viding an exchange of suc-
cessful community ex-
periences, establishing
guidelines for fund raising and
operations and engaging in
joint planning and action on
common purposes dealing with
local, regional and interna-
tional needs.

remain alive while so many
better than I died?" he said.
"They inevitably feel they sav-
ed themselves by the death of
others and there are case
where this is indeed true."
Dr. Betty Brodsky of the
Feuerstein Institute remarked
that such people "have a need
to punish themselves" and
cannot to this day allow
themselves to enjoy life or take
part in happy events.
Holocaust survivors undergo
another traumatic experience
when they need hospitalization
or nursing care. They then feel
a loss of control over their own
destinies by submitting to
authority as they did 45 years
ago. But they also recall the
sadistic experiments they and
their children were forced to
undergo in the camps. They
panic at the recollection that it
was the sick and infirm who
were murdered first.
According to the experts,
aging concentration camp sur-
vivors suffer from insomnia,
nightmares, predisposition to
illness and hypochondria,
chronic fatigue, impatience
and aggressive behavior
toward others.
But on the positive side, the
camp survivors are by and
large a tight brotherhood who
maintain contact.
Some survivors feel they re-
mained alive to "bear witness"
and hence, after retirement,
when they finally come to
terms with their memories and
their present situation in life,
many "open up" for the first
time in 40 years, the seminar
participants were told.

Shamir Mending Fences With IDF
Premier Yitzhak Shamir has
begun to mend fences with the
army after his sharp criticism
of the Israel Defense Force
high command for its alleged
interference in the political
debate over the Lavi
fighterplane project.
Chief of Staff Gen. Dan
Shomron was received by
Shamir for a reconciliation
talk. The premier sought to
defuse the tense atmosphere
created by his remark at a
Herut Central Committee
meeting in Ariel in the West
Bank, blasting the IDF for its
"unprecedented and
dangerous involvement" in the
Lavi debate.
He stressed his full con-
fidence in the military and its
commanders, although he did
not retract his statement.
Shomron replied that the IDF
took no stand on the political
issues involved in the Lavi
debate but merely presented
its professional view when ask-
ed to do so.
Most top-ranking IDF of-
fices, including the Air Force
commander, recommended
abandonment of the Lavi pro-
ject on grounds that it was rob-
bing urgently needed funds
from other vital weapons
systems. The Cabinet decided
by a 12-11 vote to scrap the
Lavi, which would have been
the second-generation combat
aircraft designed and built in
The vote split along party
lines. Likud supported con-
tinuation of the Project. Labor
was opposed. Observers
believe the bitterness express-
ed by Shamir toward the
military was more an expres-
sion of disappointment over
losing the political battle than
any real concern that the army
might turn political.
In fact, Shamir's remarks
were mild compared to the
rhetoric of other Likud-Herut
spokesman at the Ariel
meeting. They singled out
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres, the Labor Party leader,
and Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin for attack for scuttling
the Lavi. Peres hit back at a
Histadrut gathering in Even
Yehuda, north of Tel Aviv.
"They say I am against
Zionism, well, that is right. I
am against so-called Great
Zionism when that means 600
percent inflation or the loss of
$4 billion in the bank shares
crash ..." Peres said. He was
referring to economic
disasters during the years
Likud headed the government.
Rabin, addressing reporters
before leaving on an official
visit to West Germany, the
first by an Israeli Defense
Minister, said he had personal-
ly encouraged the military
high command to have a say on
the Lavi at Cabinet and
Knesset committee forums.
Other Labor Party
spokespersons wondered aloud
what Shamir's and Likud's
reactions would have been "if
the IDF had sided with the
Likud and against the Labor
Party position in the Lavi
debate ... Would he (Shamir)
have then attacked the
