Yom Kippur Message
People of Dedication .
One of the recipients of the
Fourth Annual People of
Dedication Awards this year is
Franci Rudolph. Franci was
nominated for this honor by
Schaarai Zedek Sisterhood,
where Franci is serving as
president this year. Before her
presidency, this devoted
volunteer was chairman of
many of the committees for
Sisterhood, as well as past
president of the Florida Or-
chestras Guild, Berkeley
Parents Club, and on the
Board of Directors of the
Junior League of Tampa. .
^ Franci Rudolph
Franci has been
involved with Pavilion, and sits on the board of The Tem-
ple. She was instrumental in a half milion dollar fundrais-
ing campaign for the new lower school building for
Berkeley. She is a life member of both National Council of
Jewish Women and Hadassah. This deserving honor for
rranci was sponsored by The Salvation Army Women's
Auxiliary. It was held at the downtown Hyatt Regency.
Big Brother ... The 1987 Volunteer Appreciation Din-
ner for Big Brothers and Big Sisters was held recently.
Among those honored was Eric Newman, who received
the Outstanding Achievement Award, for 14 years of
volunteer service. He has been a Big Brother to three boys
and has served on the Board during this time. Eric is also a
past recipient of the People of Dedication Awards, honor-
ing this commitment to the Big Brothers Organization. Our
community is fortunate to have you!
All the World's a Stage Among those people serv-
ing on the Board of Directors of the Playmakers for the
1987 season are Henry Gardner, Louise Kotler, Diana
Winoker, and Steve Bragin, president. The Playmakers,
whose performances are at the Cuban Club in Ybor City
are at the start of their seventh season.
Services at Menorah Manor Joe Deems and Irv
Levine, both members of Congregation Schaarai Zedek,
have volunteered to conduct Yom Kippur morning services
at Menorah Manor Nursing Home in St. Petersburg. Irv
Levine is the full-time Hebrew teacher for the Temple,
primarily working with the students preparing for Bar/Bat
Mitzyah, Joe Deems is a staff member of Tampa Jewish
Family Services, immediate past-president of the Temple
Brotherhood, and recent recipient of the Temple's "Presi-
dent's Cup" for outstanding service to the Temple. As part
of Joe's responsibilities with TJFS, he makes monthly
visits to the 31 Tampa residents now living at Menorah
Manor. We think these men are terrific to volunteer their
services during such an important holiday in the Jewish
National Merit Semifinalists named at Berkeley Prep
. The class of 1988 of Berkeley has announced those
students who will compete in the 33rd annual Merit
Scholarships, which are worth over $23 million. Included in
this impressive list are Adam Cutler, son of Buddy and
Donna Cutler; Suzanne Gilbert, daughter of Leonard and
Jean Gilbert; and Susie Sokol, daughter of Dr. Jerry and
Ann Sokol. Congratulations and good luck to you all in the
Fellowship Award .. During a special ceremony at
the Academy of General Dentistry's annual meeting,
Richard M. Kanter, DMD received the Academy's
prestigious Fellowship Award. The AGD is composed of
over 30,000 dentists dedicated to continued education in
general practice, a requirement for the Fellowship Award
is to complete more than 500 hours of continuing education
within 10 years and to pass a Fellowship examination. Dr.
Kanter graduated from the University of Pennsylvania
School of Dentistry in 1970 and has been practicing in Tam-
pa since 1976. Richard is a staff member of University
Community Hospital and a member of the Hillsborough
County Dental Society. He serves on the Board of Con-
gregation Kol Ami. He and his wife, Mary, are the parents
of Lauren, Allison, and Andrew.
Welcome Moving to Tampa from northern Califor-
? ma this summer were Paula and Glenn Ruben, and their ?

Rabbi Levi-Yitzhak of Ber-
ditchev told a Shabbat story
that may have more to say
about Yom Kippur than about
On his way to the synagogue
to celebrate Shabbat services,
the Rebbe meets an
"enlightened" young man who
pulls out his pipe in overt de-
fiance and lights it. The Rebbe
stops to remind him: "Surely,
you're forgetting that today is
"No, I haven't forgotten."
"Then surely you are ig-
norant of the law that forbids
us to smoke on Shabbat?"
"Not at all, I know all your
laws," the smoker imprudent-
ly replies.
The Rebbe looks the young
man over. He refuses to be
provoked; instead he turns to
Him for whom every being also
signifies provocation: "Did you
hear, God? True, he violates
certain of Your command-
ments. But You must admit
one thing: nobody will coerce
him into telling a lie."
To be successful, a potter
must have the finest clay, a
carpenter, the best quality
wood and nails, and a stone
mason, the best brick
available. But for an atoner to
be successful, he must start
with a cold, hard truth. If one
is honest with himself, about
his shortcomings and wrong-
doings if he is willing to
leave his excuses and alibis and
rationalizations at the door
when he enters the synagogue,
his atonement will be complete
and meaningful. If not, real
change will elude him and the
opportunity to start over will
be missed.
The problem is that most of
us think we are being honest
with ourselves when we recite
the Yom Kippur litany of con-
fession. We believe that our
mistakes are the result of
laziness or bitterness or ill will
or stupidity. But it is rare that
these are the real reasons we
fall short. Instead, the true
underlying forces are fear of
failure, fear of doing things
less than perfectly, and fear of
being rejected. These are the
Rabbi Ricardo Birnholz
fears that sap our strength and
our resolve, and keep us from
being all that God intended.
We do not purposely hide
these fears from ourselves; our
defense mechanisms sub-
consciously do them for us.
But the end result is the same,
self-deception and the subse-
quent inability to atone
As the gates of repentance
are now open, let us resolve to
open ourselves to the deeper,
more accurate explanation of
many of our deficiencies.
Often, all fear of failure may
be easier to accept than
laziness and the fear of being
imperfect or being rejected
may be easier to change than
ill will or stupidity.
In the end, we can deceive
others and we can deceive
ourselves, but we cannot
deceive God. He knows what is
in our hearts and will judge ac-
cordingly. This year, let us be
fair to ourselves and to Him.
Let us give God an opportunity
to help us by starting out with
the truth.

Who's New At Hillel
The new school year always
brings in fresh faces to a
school. This year is no excep-
tion. Hillel has four new
teachers who promise to add
more excitement, fun, and
culture to the curriculum!
How many of us "sing or
play piano" to relax? How
many of us actually do it well?
Allyson Petrone does! She is
the new music teacher for the
"Music is essential for
children. It carries over into
every aspect of life by relating
to daily experiences. The most
concrete example being, when
they sing, children gain con-
fidence." This is part of Ms.
Petrone's philosophy. She
thoughtfully adds, "Culturally,
it is the oldest form of
Originally from Alabama,
the tall bubbly blonde-haired
woman spent most of her time
in Jackson, Mississippi. She
received her BA and MA in
Music from Mississippi Col-
lege, and performed in some
operas and musicals while in
attendance, there. She worked
with childrens choirs for
various organizations, junior
high ensembles, and in private
The curriculum for the year
will be geared to having fun
with music while learning
basic principles.
The younger grades will be
exposed to different areas of
the subject such as pop, blue
grass and classical; identify
notes on the piano, and
possibly learn to play the
recorder. The older children
will study music history, com-
posers, more principles and
learn to play the guitar.
"Mr. Scharf and I have
discussed organizing an
ensemble (which is "concerted
music of two or more parts).
Here we could explore diverse
types of music and perform
complicated pieces with four
part harmony."
It's hard to believe that not
everyone sings especially with
a teacher such as Ms. Petrone
however, those students do
exist. For them they play a lot
of musicals games, listening
and keep it fun ... soon
enough they too join in.
"Music, when soft voices die
vibrates in the memory" ...
On any given Wednesday
morning you can find Martha
Genualdi somewhere behind
the stack of art supplies nestl-
ed in her arms.
"I believe that art is the
creative outflow of a person. It
is fun but you must concen-
trate on the task at hand. True
art is a discipline. Anyone who
can do crafts, but not everyone
can draw, "elaborated Ms.
When asked what sets her
apart from other art teachers,
she softly replies, "I put 110
percent of myself into what I
do. I love teaching and do it for
the children. I don't look at it
as a job."
Ms. Genualdi will be
teaching the Hillel students
the basics of art and how to
draw. They will become
familiar with the laws
(Balance, rhythm, and em-
phasis) and elements of art
(line, shape, color, value,
volume, and texture). Once
these are learned, there are no
limits to what the children can
Utilizing various mediums
such as painting, collage,
mobiles, etc, perceptual exer-
cises are made fun.
"I often hear 'I can't draw'
or 'I'm not good in Art' but
they soon discover how much
fun they can have and begin to
develop further interest. It
isn't long before they OOH and
AHH at their own work. There
are such distinct techniques
used that all find something
that they like to do."
She offered the children and
me the "Genualdi Challenge."
They will all be quite improved
by the end of the year and
laugh at what was done in
"I'm sure of it," she laughs!
Barbara Nathan has been in-
volved with Hillel for quite a
long time. She was a substitute
for two years at the school and
the JCC. Once her "baby"
started Kindergarten, she
decided that there was more to
life than "just being a
volunteer," and yet remain
close to her three children. Her
position at the school now in-
volves helping the
Kindergarten, first, and fourth
grade reading and
"The purpose of the enrich-
ment program is to enhance
the studies of students who
have time. These special pro-
jects that the children pursue
stem from their own desire for
additional academic stimula-
tion. A child interested in
sports could research the ac-
tual game, vocabulary,
muscles involved, players, and
communicate with one ...
then report back to his or her
Mrs. Nathan is eager to set
up a center where different ac-
tivities not geared toward
regular academics would be
available for the children.
"I can't wait to have an area
in the library I could call my
own!" says Nathan. A seven
year resident of Tampa, she
was raised in Atlanta and
received her degree in Special
Education from Georgia State.
As she enthusiastically
describes her work with the
children, it is also mentioned
that the yearbook will also fall
under her direction. A great
portion of this she feels will be
the solicitation of aid that will
finance the wonderful project!
The community support will
certainly make this a suc-
cessful year. x
Linda Orr Byrd has been an
East Coast Floridian since she
was four years old. She holds a
BA from Florida Southern
College and a Masters in Math
Education from Florida Atlan-
tic University. For seven years
Mrs. Byrd taught High School
math, then changed careers
slightly. For the next five
years she was employed by
Southern Bell as an engineer
and handled their complex
computer system. Although
the industry offered more
money, the fulfillment and en-
joyment was lacking and Mrs.
Byrd returned to education
here at Hillel.
"How does someone decide
to become a math teacher?"
"I'm a very logical person and
have always enjoyed the
challenge of mathematics. I
strongly believe that any sub-
ject can be taught in a way
that is rewarding and fun to do
... with the right outlook! We
can build on small tasks then
move to larger ones; this way

second always continue to
search for more knowledge
and answers. "Learning
doesn't end in the classroom,"
she states. "I'm willing to try
something new or different.
Each child has a method by
which they learn best. If a stu-
dent needs to be approached in
another manner then that's
what we do!"

Private MomentsWindows To The Past
I was very uncertain how the
congregation would react to
the acquisition of these win-
dows. Even though they
represented a solid connection
with Schaarai Zedek's past,
most of the membership,
myself included, had never
seen the old building, let alone
the old windows. The old
building was sold and the con-
gregation moved in to the pre-
sent building long before my
family came to Tampa.
I came across these windows
by the sheerest of coin-
cidences. It seems that for the
last 20 years, they quietly
resided in the back bedroom of
an older Hyde Park house.
Over time the windows, much
like the structure they were
nestled in, had fallen into
serious disrepair. But I am get-
ting slightly ahead of the
In 1957, the congregation
needed more room and so it
sold the building on Delaware
and DeLeon which it had oc-
cupied since 1924. The new
owner rented the building to
the Church of Christ and the
encircled Star of David was
boarded over.
Sometime in the late 1960s,
its owner tore down the struc-
ture to make way for a new
apartment building. Before
demolition began, however,
the owner thought these stain-
ed glass windows might be of
value, and so he salvaged the
Star and the arched side win-
dow from the wrecker's ball.
Buyers were few and far bet-
ween and the owner had
seriously overestimated the
extrinsic value of these win-
dows. The windows were not
signed or dated by the artist,
although the artistry involved
was self-evident. And so, ex-
cept for the sentimentality, the
windows had no compelling
And so they stayed in that
faded, pale blue back room,
stacked against a wall near
windows curtained in bed-
sheets, for almost two
decades. Fortunes turned for
the owner of the windows and
immediate cash became more
important that the cumber-
some, awkward very non-
liquid asset of questionable
worth being stored in the
bedroom, and so a quick sale
was sought.

friend whose physician hus-
band worked with stained

with Florida Senator Lawton Chiles on Sept. 9, the first day of
his two day visit to Washington, D.C. In his discussion with
Chiles and other Senate leaders, Sharansky emphasized that the
recent release of big-name refuseniks is only a diplomatic gesture
and efforts must continue for the release of all Soviet Jews seeking
to gain their right to emigrate. Chiles told Sharansky that he will
seek to pressure the Strviets to make the recent reopening of the
emigration gates a permanent not pre-summit policy. Chiles
also told Sharansky that he will continue his personal appeals for
Sharansky's friends, Aba and Ida Taratuta of Leningrad:

meone who would be in-
terested in a six foot round
glass Star of David, he was
contacted and told of these
windows. Although a gentile
with no background or ex-
perience with things Jewish,
"Doc" respected and ap-
preciated that this symbol
might have real religious
significance and should be of-
fered to those to whom it
would have meaning. This is
where I came in.
Doc called me, not because
he thought I had any interest
in acquiring these windows,
but rather because I am one of
the few Jews that he knows
well. I could tell from his tone
that Doc was ambivalent about
making this call. He didn't
really want to get involved
with the owner's attempts to
sell these windows, but he felt
that some sacrilege might be
committed if the windows
were dismantled or otherwise
disposed of.
At this point, I did not know
of the window's origins, nor
could I have guessed what I
was about to become involved
in. But for some reason which
I still do not understand, I sug-
gested that Doc arrange a visit
to see what the man had for
I was warned that the win-
dows might already be in an ir-
reparable condition, and they
were really shaky. The support
structure was warped, glass
was broken, and there was a
bullet hole in the center of the
Star, right above the "vav." I
couldn't imagine how anyone
could make use of these win-
dows, and Doc told me that
they were probably cheaper to
replace than to repair. And
then their owner mentioned
that they came from that
Jewish "church" on DeLeon
and Delaware, "You know,...
Rabbi Zielonka's church."
My jaw clenched. I made
some more idle chitchat, and
bid the owner good-bye, telling
him that if I found anyone in-
terested, I'd call. As soon as I
got home, I called Carl
Zielonka. He assured me that
these were in fact our win-
And so it went. By May the
restoration was complete and
Marty Adelman had appointed
dows, and that he thought the a committee of Carolyn Heller,
congregation would love to re- Bob Dean and myself to make
acquire them. I think that it
was at this point that I began
personalizing and concep-
tualizing this project.
Ever since our daughter was
killed, I have felt a need to do
something in her memory.
While several projects have
been completed, none were
quite enough. This project,
however, was right. I spoke
with Marty Adelman, then
president of the congregation,
to get his thoughts on it and he
too delighted in the idea of br-
inging these windows home.
Shortly thereafter, successful
negotiations were completed
and the windows were pur-
chased for the Temple.
Now that we had them, what
would we do with them? The
first order of business was to
restore the windows. Their
condition was so precarious
that restoration work had to
begin soon.
Doc recommended a friend
who had a stained glass
business. Bob Krammes work-
ed for Buchanan Stained
Glass, Inc. and had examined
the windows while they were
still in Hyde Park. Bob arrang-
ed for the handling and move-
ment of the glass to
Buchanan's shop on W. Busch
Boulevard. He told me that the
job would be done in April. He
didn't tell me he had no
assurance of finding glass to
match these 60 plus year old
pieces of art.
In February, Bob and his
partner Mary were visited (for
the first time in 11 years of do-
ing business) by a sales
representative from Kokomo
Glass Co. of Kokomo, Indiana.
Since Kokomo Glass had been
around for over a hundred
years, Mary wondered if they
might be able to help in replac-
ing the missing and broken
glass panels and pieces. The
salesman took one look at the
glass and recognized it as their
own original work. Indeed, he
confirmed that Kokomo Glass
had done the original fabrica-
tion of the windows and that
they still carried much of the
glass that had been damaged.
recommendations to the Board
of Trustees on how to make
use of the windows. Carolyn
and Bob felt that the windows
could be used in the new social
hall and that natural light
should be used, if possible.
When we determined that the
"Star" fit the doorway,
Carolyn suggested that a
shadow box be used to house
the other window, to allow
both a daytime/nighttime ef-
fect. With some minor altera-
tions, Carolyn's proposal
became the final, approved
By now it was July. The pro-
jected (hoped for) completion
date was any time before the
High Holidays in September.
All was in place except for one
small item. We needed a
carpenter to build the shadow
box and to mount the "Star."
The people at Buchanan Glass
came through again and gave
us Glenn Kemp's name. Glenn
met with the Committee and
with Jake Gottfried, the Tem-
ple architect, and plans were
drawn and work began in mid-
It was clear that we were
once again blessed with a
craftsman of spirit and soul as
well as skill. Glenn deeply ap-
preciated what this project
meant to the Temple and what
it meant to me, personally. He
undertook this job with a zeal
and dedication fitting to the
project and impressed us all
with his care and skill.
The shadow box was com-
pleted by Sept. 3, and the glass
was in place and illuminated in
time for a uniquely ap-.
propriate Friday ser-
vice. Unknown to me at the
time, the Friday evening ser-
vice of Sept. 4, was to include a
baby naming, a B'nai Mitzvah,
and a pre-nuptial blessing.
Ellen would have liked that.

Friday, October 2, 1987/The Jewish Eloridian of Tampa Page S
Diane TindellA Very Unique Individual
Her name appears frequent-
ly in The Floridian, Family
Times, and conversations. A
Florida resident for six-and-a-
half years, she suddenly seems
to have taken Tampa by storm.
There is a wide circle of
endearing friends around her
and she retains close ties with
her family. Described ap-
propriately by someone as a
"stick of dynamite," most
wonder where this 5'3" lady
gets all the energy!
Diane Tindell has shown
herself to be an extremely
talented, intelligent and sen-
sitive person.
Her philosophy on life is
"While I'm sleeping, someone
else is painting a master-
piece," and the only complaint
is "There aren't enough hours
in my day!" A Northerner at
heart, she misses the crispness
of an autumn morning and
leaves crunching beneath her
feet. Her favorite pastime is a
peaceful afternoon near a lake
or a long walk in the woods .
yet she remains equally at
home "dancing the night
away." She enjoys swimming,
tennis and admits to keeping a
packed suitcase under her bed
for her first year here, hoping
she could go home!
Doris Wiener knew her then,
and consoled her. Today with a
smile she describes Diane as an
"artistic, off-the-wall, wonder-
ful person. She can turn any
evening into a laughter-filled
event, with her witty and dry
sense of humor."
Educationally, Diane holds a
BA from Brooklyn College
where she graduated with
honors, and a BSN from the
University of Pennsylvania.
She pursued a Masters at New
York University and com-
pleted it with a "Mrs" degree
"It's not really ironic that I
hold the degrees in such dif-
ferent areas, I just couldn't
choose between the arts and
science and pursued both,"
Diane explains. "Today my
main jobs follow in the same
direction as an artist and
childbirth educator."
She is currently teaching the
Cesarean Birth Series (a cur-

"A most significant point is
that she spends many hours

years; Nancy Shaw knows that
Diane has always been there
when needed and vice versa.
"Diane has a great deal of in-
sight into people, situations
and their feelings. I suppose
you could say her "Woman's
intuition is well-advanced."
They share a wonderful unique
relationship that seems to
have been going on for many
more years!
Most of all, it's her husband
Marc (a dentist at North-
pointe), who is proud of her ac-
complishments, and has been
supportive of her individuality
and achievements. He admits
that she has very definite opi-
nions and sticks to her convic-
tions usually creating some
high-spirited discussions ..
"My wife is feisty, fun and
exciting to be with. I admire
her self-confidence and the
fact that she is unpretentious.
She does not put on airs ...
We met in a summer camp and
married very soon after. I'm
certain she deliberately swept
me off my feet and glad that
she did."
Together they function as a
team, each one independent
but joined by a bond of mutual
respect, understanding and
Wife, and mother of two
lovely children (Julie 7, and
Barrett 3-V2), Diane is protec-
tive of the people she cares
How does she view herself?
"Complex. My parents pro-
bably have the most to do with
who I am today. My mother
has more energy and love
within her than any other
human being ever possessed.
She was a feminist long before
the term was ever in vogue.
My father supported her and
offered me the approval, en-
couragement and sense of
reality that is ME. Together
for 43 years, they showed me
by example just what a home
built on love and respect really
means. It is their example that
I follow and when in doubt,
their advice," Diane explained.
As I write this, I was con-
scious of what I wanted to add,
but soon it seemed everything
had been saidV Six years ago I
met her in a playgroup, and
over the course of two years,
cups of coffee and home baked
goodies, I never heard her say
that she can't do something.
Diane is always willing to try.
She left me with a quote from
her favorite book "The Little
Prince," which sums it up nice-
ly. "All that is essential is in-
visible to the eye!"

Personal Advice
Dear Janice:
My husband and I have been
married for eight years. Dur-
ing this time, we have worked
on our careers, and each of us
is successful in our own right.
We have built a beautiful
house, and we have enjoyed
decorating it together. Our
leisure time is spent golfing,
taking trips, and socializing
with friends who are in the
same economic bracket which
we are in. For over a year, I
have had the desire to begin a
real "family"; that is, I would
like to have a baby. Bob and I
had always intended to have at
least one child, but now he is
not sure. Bob feels that life is
great as is, and a baby would
cramp our social life. He says
let's wait another few years.
I'm 35 years old, and in a few
years, I may not be able to
have a child. I'm also aware
that the older I get, the
greater the chance that my
child could suffer from a birth
defect such as Downs Syn-
drome. How do I convince Bob
to have a baby now?
Career Wife
Dear Career Wife:
What you seem to have is a dif-
ference in values that is,
Bob values leisure and his
social life, and you value
motherhood. Have you sat
down and discussed this
together? Is he aware of
how strongly you feel the
desire to have a baby, and of
what the ramifications
could be if you wait "a few
years?" Perhaps you want
to ask him what he fears the
most about becoming a
father. It may be that he
pictures both of you being
stuck in the house with no
respite. It may be that he
wants your undivided atten-
tion. Have you observed
him with other people's
children? Some people are
not comfortable around
kids, and it is important to
know if this is true about
Bob. Opportunities to be
with youngsters may clarify
his feelings.
Dear Janice:
Charlie and I and our two
kids moved to Tampa four
years ago. My Mom and Dad
have lived in New York all
their lives. Now they have

decided to move down here
too, so they can be near us and
their only grandchildren. I
would love to have them closer
to us, but I'm afraid of being
overwhelmed. I know they
want to live with us until they
find a place of their own.
Charlie and I have had our pro-
blems in the past, buth things
have been going well lately,
and I don't want to rock the
boat. I'm afraid my mother
will be demanding, and I know
she'll be homesick for all her
friends. Charlie works all day,
so I'll be the one who will have
the burden placed on me. How
can I tell my mother that I
want her here, but that I'm
also afraid?
Scared Daughter in Tampa
Dear Scared Daughter:
It may help if you tell your
Mom how you feel, but not
what she should say or do.
You can tell her that you
will be thrilled to have her
in Tampa, but that you
know she will understand
that you already have ac-
tivities, chores, plans, and
friends, all of which take up
your time, as well as your
children. It may help to of-
fer to have your parents live
with you on a time-limited
basis; tell them that you are
sure they can find housing
within four or six weeks, for
instance. It helps to know
there is light at the end of
the tunnal. Line up a realtor
you can trust, and put your
parents in that person's
hands. If they select hous-
ing on their own, they won't
blame you later if they
decide they don't like it. In-
troduce them to other peo-
ple of their own age,
parents of your friends, to
socialize with. Build in time
each week to spend with
your parents, but also build
in time to be alone with your
husband. Also be sure to
discuss what it will be like
having Grandma and
Grandpa here with your
kids. They need to know
what to expect, too. And
good luck!
If you have any questions or
concerns you wish address-
ed, please write Dear

Tampa Jewish Federation
Soviet Jewry Task Force
Readers Write
Soviet Jewry is the World's
Concern. Now critics will
argue this point of view is
too provocative and possibly
suicidal, as it could result in
further delay and release of
Soviet Jews. Those efforts
could include scaling down
our human rights attacks,
then perhaps the Soviet
Union will come to
recognize that the United
States and Jews in par-
ticular do not harbor any ill
will and this idea is just a
prerequisite to continued
good relations with the
United States. But. if this
goes unchecked this
"disease" will sooner or
later infest the entire Soviet
Block countries.
The Soviet Union has always
accused the United States
of using human rights as a
pretext for interfering in its
internal affairs, yet the
United States must con-
tinue its concern for the
human rights of Soviet
Jews. This can successfully
be done by cultural ex-
change of artistic and sports
programs between both
America has an excellent op-
portunity to continue to
raise the issue of Soviet
Jewry by taking the occa-
sion to remind the Soviets
of the fundamental rights
the Soviet Jews lack.
To best explain the Soviet
Jews plight allow me to tell
you a story of a man who
died and went into
Paradise. He entered one
chamber and found many
well dressed "souls" sitting
at a beautifully decorated
table with a variety of
delicious foods. But unfor-
tunately, all present had
very short arms, so they
were given long utensils.
They stared at the food, but
could not manipulate their
tools in order to eat. Our
visitor went into the next
chamber and found the
same situation; people with
short arms and with long
utensils. Only here the spirit
was gay, the people
laughing, for they knew
how to combine love of
mankind and sincere
manipulation of hearts.
Each man fed his next
neighbor, there existed a
real spirit of cooperation
and friendship. All worked
together to attain their ob-
jective which is to free
Soviet Jewry by never let-
ting the world forget; even
if we have short arms. We
can accomplish this goal, it
can be done through sinceri-
ty, determination,
truthfulness, prayer and
hard work.

Kune, will hold its next mon-
thly meeting on Monday, Oct.
12, 8 p.m. at the North Branch
Jewish Community Center.
The purpose of the Soviet
Jewry Task Force, according
to Mrs. Shalett, is to bring
awareness to the plight of
Soviet Jews. "Our 1987-1988
goals are to begin to educate
the Jewish community through
special programs. We intend
to build coalitions with Jewish
and non-Jewish organizations
and to foster action on behalf
of the oppressed minorities in
the Soviet Union."
The leaders of the United
States and the Soviet Union
are now, for the first time in
several years, exploring new
avenues of communication.
The renewed attention given
to Soviet Jewry can be traced
to the mobilization of the
American Jewish community
this past year. This Task Force
has the opportunity to work to
ensure the continued par-
ticipation in the Soviet Jewry
movement of elected officials,
public opinion molders, and
other prominent persons
throughout Tampa and the

ty Relations Committee call

of art was designed especially
for Menorah Manor by

First Annual Meeting
A milestone gathering of a
year old congregation took
place Sept. 12: By choice of its
members, the North Tampa
Reform Jewish Congregation

"Congregation Beth Am"
(House of the People) and the
first elected board of officers

first annual meeting held in
the ambiance of the new West
Shore Hyatt Hotel overlooking
Tampa Bay.
Directly after her welcome
and call to order, the evening's
chairman, Lili Kaufman, who
was also temple name chair-
man, announced that 97 per-
cent of members had voted
and by a significant majority
had chosen the name Con-
gregation Beth Ant. Mrs.
Kaufmann reflected the con-
gregation's feeling when she
intoned, "May we become a
mighty force of Jewish caring
in our community."

tor of the Tampa Jewish

prayer, the D'var Torah. affir-
ming, "Our goals to serve God

committee of the national
board of the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions, who conveyed the
organizations's greetings and
encouragement noting, "The
Union helps congregations do
collectively what it would be

He rises to lament their

An innovative outreach pro-
gram is planned by Tampa

laboration with three local
synagogues to provide

Oct. 18 "You and Your
Child: Living through
Divorce" is a workshop design-
ed to help parents understand
what their children are ex-
periencing during and after
their parents' divorce. It ad-
dresses issues such as divided the elderly and aging popula-
loyalties, guilt, feelings of self- tion in our community. We will
blame, anger, and how to deal look at beliefs, some true and
with these issues. They will
also examine the parental
temptation to depend upon the
child and to substitute the
child for significant others
after divorce.
Nov. 8 "A Practical
Workshop on the Gifted Child"
is a workshop which will focus
on identifying the gifted child,
advocating for the gifted child,
and understanding how the
gifted child feels as he or she is
singled out from other
classmates by being
designated as "gifted."
Dec. 6 "Myths and
Realities of Aging" addresses
some untrue, that many people
have about the needs and feel-
ings of our elderly. These will
include the need for compa-
nionship, basic needs such as
eating, sleeping, and exercise,
and the need for being thought
worthy, as well as our fear of
growing old.
This series is open not only
to all Temple members, but to
all friends of Tampa Jewish
Family Services as well. For-
mat will include both a presen-
tation and a discussion, with
time for questions. No pre-
registration is required.

ment has already turned to
dust. Quietly, he sits at their
gravesides contemplating
some advice or kind words he
heard from them, a legacy that
they left him.
In itself, death is not a
tragedy. It is the untimely
nature or the unfortunate cir-
cumstances surrounding it
that makes death, tragic.
When a peaceful death follows
a long life blessed with more or
less good health, a life devoted
to one's family and fellow man,
then no matter how great the
loss and sorrow, we must look
upon such a life as a blessing.
Judaism views the world we
live in as an entry that leads to
yet another world (Olam-Haba)
where man is judged and
where his soul continues to ex-
ist. The traditional Jewish
customs and laws concerning
death and mourning vary, but
all address themselves to
maintaining the dignity of the
deceased and to comforting
the pain of the mourners. That
is the major function of the
Chevra Kaddisha.
The following are some of
the important customs concer-
ning the Jewish dead.
"I will go down with thee in-
to Egypt, and I will also surely
bring thee up again, and
Joseph shall put his hand upon
thine eyes." (Genesis 46:4)
All present at the departure
of the soul are required to rend
their garments. The duty of
tearing the garment by those
who are not obligated to
observe mourning for the
deceased (not related) may be
fulfilled by making a slight
tear at the hem. It is a time-
honored and ancient sign of
grief in Israel extending back
to Biblical times. The garment
that is torn is worn throughout
the week of mourning except
on the Shabbat. When tearing
the garment, this blessing is
made, "Blessed Art Thou, L'd
Our G'd The True Judge."
"The L'd Gave And The L'd
Hath Taken Away." (Job 1:21)
Those present who are not
obligated to mourn should
recite the above blessings
without the Divine name and
the title King Yoreh Deah 340.
Moed Katan 25a)
The corpse must be con-
stantly watched and never be
left alone. This is one of the
duties of the Chevra Kaddisha.
The one who guards the dead
is exempt from reciting
prayers or from observing any
Precepts (Mitzvot) of the
This follows the law, that he
who is engaged in the perfor-
mance of one religious duty is
exempt from performing
another. It is forbidden to eat
in the room where the deceas-
ed is, even fruit or water is for-
bidden. (Beruchot 18a, Moed
Katan 23b)
If one must observe mourn-
ing, he is called an Onan from
the time death occurred until
after the interment. He may
not remove his shoes before
the burial, but he is permitted
to leave the house to make the
necessary provision for the
burial. (Yoreh Deah 341)
'The L'd Keep Thee From
All Evil; He Shall Keep Thy
Soul." Amen!
Shabbat Sholom!
