Service Starts
'Tiny Tot' Grow Group
Infants and toddlers will
soon be invited to participate,
along with their parents, in a
program sponsored by Tampa
Jewish Family Services at the
Norhwest office on North Dale
Mabry, Tampa. The program
is designed to stimulate infant
and toddler growth and
senses, and to enhance the
bond between parent and child
as well.
TJFS plans to begin this pro-
gram in February, 1988.
Babies up to age one will be
grouped together, as will the
other groups aged one to two,
and two to three years of age.
Each child will be screened
first to determine what level of
operation they have achieved
in fine motor skills, per-
sonal/social skills, gross motor,
and language skills. In addi-
tion, children over two-and-a-
half years will be screened for
visual/perceptual, imitation,
and learned skills.
The program is designed to
be fun for both tots and
parents and will include much
play activity that contains
touching and manipulation.
Parents interested in enrolling
their youngsters in this pro-
gram may call Leslie

Studies from Temple Universi-
ty. He received his Bachelor of
Hebrew Letters from Gratz
College in Philadelphia and his
Master's Degree from the

Tampa Hits $2 Million In Endowments
TOP On Dec. 31, a signifi-
cant benchmark figure was
surpassed, as the Tampa
Jewish Federation ac-
cumulated over $2 million in
endowments in the Tampa
Orlando Pinellas Jewish
Four new philanthropic (or
advised) funds were establish-
ed in Tampa. Two were
created using appreciated
publicly-traded stock, another
was started using closely-held
stock in a privately owned
company, and the other fund
was established with a cash
In addition, Alfred and
Audrey Haubenstock have
established a designated fund
to benefit the Tampa Jewish
Family Services. Each year in
perpetuity, all interest income
will be used by the JFS for pro-
fessional staff development.
This may include subsidizing
the cost of sending a JFS
employee to a conference, con-
tinuing education or seminars.
"We felt there was a real
need for this type of endow-
ment fund," said Audrey, who
serves as president of the JFS
Board. "This will provide
needed funds for an important
purpose at TJFS."
Mark Glickman, executive
director of the TOP Jewish
Foundation, estimated that
Tampa's assets now total
$2,007,000. "We kept ap-
proaching the $2 million
figure, but then dropped back
because of large amounts of
charitable disbursements. It is
very exciting to reach this
significant milestone," said

OUT Career Chapter .. The Tampa Career chapter of
Women's American Organization for Rehabilitation
Through Training (ORT) provided holiday gifts to the adult
clients at the Florida Mental Health Institute at USF.
"Many charities provide gifts for children, but adults in
need are often overlooked," said Eileen Baumgarten,
president of this ORT chapter. Each client, ranging in age
from 18 to 54, received a package. "The ORT group is
wonderful. They are giving to people in real need without
thoughts of thanks or praise," said Stephen Hinrichs, the
Director of the Intensive Residential Treatment Program
at the Institute. The women who participated in this wor-
thy project are to be commended for their outstanding ser-

The Gratz Dream Fulfilled 1 Year Later
"One year ago we dreamed
together. We had a vision a
picture in our minds of a com-
munity high school that could
be set up in Tampa. Today, one
year later I am pleased to visit
not only a Jewish Community
High School, but a branch of
Gratz, as well. The dream has
become a reality through
dedicated efforts and plann-
ing ." and for Dr. Uzie!
Adini, the dream continues.
Here to observe operation of
the school, Dr. Adini met with
Gary Alter, Rabbi's Berger,
Rose and Birnholz, Joachim
Scharf, Mrs. Lewis, Robert
Goldstein and other communi-
ty leaders. The Tampa Com-
munity High School was com-
mended for a general input,
review school policy, and plan
for the future. Director of the
Department of Secondary
Education Gratz College
Philadelphia, Dr. Adini holds a
Masters of Education from the
Hebrew University in
Jerusalem, and a Doctorate
from Dropsie University in
Upon observation of the
classes he is encouraged by the
number and attendance of
enrolled students. "They are
coming, being exposed to
quality teachers, learning, and
a very capable administration
overseeing the school," Dr.
Adini comments.
"It is difficult to com-
municate the emotional excite-
ment of seeing a living branch
in operation. I was impressed

Lead Day
Resident Program
Nancy Isaacson, formerly
Menorah Manor's social
worker, will direct the Home's
new Day Resident Program,
scheduled to open in late
Originally from Dallas, Ms.
Isaacson received a bachelor's
degree in social work from the
University of Texas at Austin.
She earned her master's
degree in gerontology last
year at the University of South
Florida in Tampa.
Ms. Isaacson has worked
diligently the last few months
to coordinate the program.
She said she believes the pro-
gram has a lot of potential for
success in this area, which
traditionally has a high elderly
"This pogram is geared to
accommodate those elderly
persons living with caregivers
who perhaps cannot be home
during the day, but who pro-
vide care and companionship
at night," she said. "This way,
the elderly can receive quality
care and remain productive
through recreational activities
offered at the home."

At the high school commit-
tee meeting, Principal
Rochelle Lewis reported that
all the courses currently
taught .in Philadelphia are
available to us. As the number
of students increase, more
classes will be available.
Currently, credit procedure
is being reviewed for
Hillsborough county public
schools and a few of the
private institutions USF will
also be approached for credit
of upper level courses.
The school offers more than
book learning and Dr. Adini
expressed the hope that the
kids of the "Southern front,"
will join students of other
regions in conferences,
shabbat-on and ultimately
ulpan in Israel! Teacher cer-
tification, high school and col-
lege credit can happen in Tam-
pa, too!
Mrs. Lewis says, "We
already have a substantial in-
crease in enrollment for the
spring term. The more
students we get to participate,
the greater the experience
becomes, and we're looking
forward to a great semester!"
Rodeph Sholom is preparing
to offer five scholarships to the

formed Rabbi Berger.
The need for such a program
has been documented and sup-
port is growing ... Success is

Pope's Planned Waldheim
Visit 'Double BW To Jews
Friday, January 22, 1988/ITie Jewish Floridiap of Tampa Page 3
Vatican's announcement that
the pope would likely meet
Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim during a papal visit
to Austria violated
agreements Jewish leaders
thought had been worked out
during their previous meetings
with Catholic officials, accor-
ding to Elan Steinberg, ex-
ecutive director of the World
Jewish Congress.
As a result, a letter sent
recently to the Vatican and
signed by members of the In-
ternational Jewish Committee
on Interfaith Consultations
was "the most sharply worked
protest ever sent to the
Vatican by IJCIC," said
"The announcement on
Vatican Radio dealt a double
blow, especially to those who
supported the meetings with
the pope in Miami" last
September said Steinberg.
"We object not only to the
substance of the announce-
ment, but we thought there
was a procedure in place
whereby we would receive
some consultation or warning,
as the agreement said, 'to
avoid future misunderstan-
dings,' he said.
WJC is one of five consti-
tuent organizations of IJCIC,
whose other members are the
Israel Interfaith Association,
American Jewish Committee,
B'nai B'rith International and
the Synagogue Council of
The group's letter, directed
to Cardinal Johannes
Willebrands, president of the
Vatican's Commission for
Religious Relations with the
Jews, warns further meetings
the pope and Waldheim "could
have the most serious implica-
tions for Vatican-Jewish
The letter also objects to
reports, "not corroborated,"
that Waldheim would accom-
pany the pope on a visit to the
Mauthausen concentration
(The Vatican has denied
those reports, according to a
story Friday (Jan. 8) in The
New York Times. But the

paper quoted Vatican officials
as saying that the pope and
Waldheim are likely to meet as
many as three times in keeping
with protocol.
The IJCIC letter stops short
of requesting a meeting bet-
ween Jewish officials and Car-
dinal Agostino Casaroli, the
Vatican secretary of state,
despite previous agreements
that Jewish groups could seek
such meetings "to avoid future
"We felt we'd been down
that road before and ac-
complished nothing," explain-
ed Steinberg. Instead, the let-
ter asks for a response from
Willebrands in light of
evidence that has surfaced
about Waldheim's activities as
an intelligence officer in the
German army during World
War II.
An international commission
is currently investigating
charges, brought by the WJC
and other groups, that
Waldheim was personally in-
volved in atrocities against
Jews and Yugoslav partisans
in the Balkans during his army
service. The Austrian presi-
dent has acknowledged that he
served in the German army,
but has denied any knowledge
of the atrocities.
Waldheim met with the pope
at the Vatican last June in a
move that outraged Jewish
leaders and triggered a major
setback in efforts to improve
Catholic-Jewish relations.
Jewish leaders discussed their
dismay in meetings with the
pope and Catholic officials out-
side Rome on Sept. 1 and
again with the pope during his
visit to Miami on Sept. 11.
American Jewish leaders
continued late last week to
protest a second meeting bet-
ween the pope and Waldheim.
Said Jerome Chanes,
associate national affairs
director of the National Jewish
Community Relations Ad-
visory Council, "We continue
to make clear that Catholic-
Jewish relations in America
are cordial. But it is Vatican-
Jewish relations that are in-
herently problematic. This is
another of the unpleasant sur-
prises that have been visited
upon us by this present
Vatican administration."
DIVISION of the Tampa Jewish Federation
held Women'8 Wednesday at the Harbor
Island Hotel. Over seventy women attended the
program, which addressed Israel from a
cultural viewpoint. Professor Larry Berger,
who recently returned from a year of teaching
in Jerusalem was the main speaker who
shared his experiences with the women.
Serving on the Women's Wednesday commit-
tee were (left to right): Lyn Meyerson, Sharon
Siegel (Co-chairmen), Ellen Stern, Janice
Brenner, Trudy Harris, Vicki Paul (Co-
Chairman) Professor Larry Berger, Ellen
Crystal, Diane Goldfeder, Ann Rudolph, and
Jolene Shor. Lynn Deitch, Nadine Feldman
and Jane Sergay also assisted with the
Manor to Begin Day Resident Program
Menorah Manor will extend
its service base this month by
initiating a new Day Resident
Program, which will operate
out of the home.
The Day Resident Program
will offer structured daily ac-
tivities for the frail elderly liv-
ing in the community. Par-
ticipants will be incorporated
into the ongoing programs and
services available at the home.
Plans for recreation call for
therapeutic activities schedul-
ed throughout the day, such as
music, dance, exercise, adult
education courses, humanities,
cultural and current events,
religious activities, field trips,
games and much more. Meals
will be provided, including a
light Continental breakfast,
lunch and an afternoon snack.
Rehabilitative services
(physical, occupational and
speech therapies) and ancillary
services (dental, podiatry,
hearing screenings,
psychological therapy and
beauty shop care) will be
offered-based on physician's
orders-at an additional charge.
Transportation will be pro-
vided, using the Home's
handicap-equipped van, to
those residing within a
30-minute radius of the home.
The cost per day in the pro-
gram is $20. For those unable
to pay the full charge, a sliding
fee schedule will be developed.
The start-up funding for the
program is being provided by
the Menorah Manor volunteer
The Day Resident Program
is being initiated as a

The Gaza Question and Resolution
Is Israeli restraint making the rioting in the Gaza Strip and the West
Bank (Judea and Samaria) worse?
That's the view of Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, who sug-
gests that the uprisings persist because his troops have not tried to
crush them, and the protesters can thus afford to be more daring.
Shamir correctly says, "They know rubber bullets and tear gas don't
kill. Therefore they are not afraid, and these events continue, and we
don't succeed in ending them quickly." So far, so good.
But Israel's efforts to limit access to the Palestinian refugee camps
which are the hotbeds of revolt, while completely justified, have
negative impact. It is better to let the media and the UN officials who
request entry proceed at their own risk than to keep them out.
Israel is paying the price of being a democratic state. It is being judg-
ed by higher standards than imposed on the Palestinians or, indeed, on
any Arab nation.
Returning to Shamir's statements this week, we cannot fault his im-
plied threat to impose economic sanctions against Gaza residents if the
rioting continues. Such measures are infinitely better than the con-
tinued use of lethal force no matter how justifiable each case.
The argument is being made that the use of such force is' 'devastating
to Israel's image in the United States and the world." Unfortunately, in
this era of television news where the scenes of youths being beaten and
carried away by Israeli troops enter our living rooms nightly, he is
Never shown are the menacing attacks by Palestinians armed with
knives, large rocks and Molotov cocktails, who assault Israeli soldiers
and outnumber them.
But that will continue to be the case until Israel resolves the entire
Gaza Strip question. Egypt doesn't want it back, making a final resolu-
tion most difficult.
The Pope and Waldheim, Again
Pope John Paul II's sensitivity to world Jewry again comes into
serious doubt in the wake of the Vatican's announcement that the pon-
tiff again will meet Austrian President Kurt Waldheim in June.
The second meeting, which will be seen as the Pope's effort to
legitimize Waldheim in the face of mounting (and non-Jewish) opposi-
tion in Austria, comes mere months after the heralded conference of
American Jewish leaders with John Paul II in Miami.
Some American Jewish groups have said they hope the Pope will use
the new Waldheim encounter to voice his concerns with the Holocaust
while on Austrian soil. Others say that the meeting should prompt
Waldheim to "publicly admit his Nazi past and withdraw from public
life." These suggestions aren't going to be given any consideration by
A more proper response is one of outrage, and the efforts by some
normally responsible church officials in Florida to dismiss the second
Waldheim visit as routine Vatican business are irresponsible.
Pope John Paul II has made two serious errors on the same subject.
The second places his announced efforts towards improving relations
with the Jewish Community in clear jeopardy.
$604 Million In Bonds Sold
NEW YORK (JTA) The Israel Bond organization
announced that it sold a record $604,249,250 in Israeli
securities in 1987, surpassing the 1986 figure of $603
About 80 percent of the bond sold during the 1987 cam-
paign, best in the organization's 36-year history, were in
the United States, with the remainder divided between
Canada, parts of Western Europe and several countries in
Latin America, according to a spokesperson.

ting Judaism's Conservative, Orthodox, Reconstructionist

Jewish men and women "to obtain a traditional get

The statement also suggests the exploration of a

well. West German diplomats
say Genscher will explore
whether and how the Euro-
pean Community could ad-
vance peace prospects. The
EC has urged the convening of
an international Mideast peace
The heads of the 12 EC na-
tions are expected to issue a
statement on the Middle East
at their special February
meeting in Brussels. West
Germany this month assumed
the rotating chairmanship of
the EC's political institutions.
Delegations of Arab am-
bassadors have met with vir-
tually every European govern-
ment over the past weeks to
demand strong condemnation
of the deportations and the
handling of the unrest.
And European criticism of
Israel mounted last week. In
The Hague, Israeli Am-
bassador Zeev Suffoth was
summoned by Dutch Foreign
Minister Hans van den Broek.
Vand den Broek expressed
his government's "extreme
concern" about the deporta-
tion orders issued against nine
Palestinians and about Israel's
action in the territories in
general. He also urged Israel
to enter into an international
Mideast conference.
The U.N. Security Council
voted last week to demand
Israel to refrain from the
deportations. The French
Socialist Party appealed to
Israel to drop the deportations
and "condemned the brutal op-
pression against
demonstrators." The party,
led by President Francois Mit-
terrand, is France's friendliest
toward Israel.
The party's executive com-
mittee noted that the deporta-
tions are "contrary to interns-
tional law" and warned that
transgression of the Geneva
Conventions may adversely af-
fect Israel's image in France
and Western Europe.
A fellow traveler, German
Social Democrat Party leader
and parliamentarian Hans-
Juergen Wischnewski, also
recently protested to Israeli
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres over the use of live am-
munition by Israeli security
forces during demonstrations
by Palestinians.
The highly publicized protest
by Wischnewski, who heads
the Middle East Committee of
the Socialist International,
was seen as a direct affront to
a "brother party" in Israel.
A French investigatory com-
mission also criticized Israel's
riot control. Three French at-
torneys, headed by Jean-Louis
Weil, a Jew, said that during
their recent tour of the ter-
ritories they saw dead and
wounded hit by large-caliber
The commission, which is
linked to various left-wing
movements, claimed that
many of those arrested "were
severely beaten" before they
were taken to court.
A British Foreign Office of-
ficial, David Mellor, had said
during a tour of the Gaza Strip
that conditions were "appall-
ing" and "an affront to civiliz-
ed values."
Israel's ambassador to
Belgium and the EC, Avi
Primor, reacted on Belgium
radio with a message of

Mellor was "shocked by what
he saw in the refugee camps of
the Gaza Strip" during his
first trip to Israel.
But he added that Israel has
"built new cities and new hous-

move has been opposed for
political reasons, by the Arab
He noted that the British
supported the PLO-backed UN
Security Council resolution.

In Rome, the Vatican's new-
ly invested Latin rite patriarch
of Jerusalem, Monsignor
Michel Sabbah, a Palestinian,
said that he could not foresee a
speedy end to the tension in
the Middle East.
Ethiopia Said To Try About 20 Jews
TEL AVIV (JTA) Ethiopia put about 20 Jews on
trial last month for their involvement in attempting to im-
migrate to Israel, Israeli Immigration and Absorption
Minister Yaacov Tsur said. \ <
His comments were reported in the newspaperJtfttariv,
which added that nothing more is known of their fate. Tsur
said that most of the defendants had worried relatives in
A kspokesperson for the American Association for Ethio-
pian Jews in Chicago said that 14 Jews are in Ethiopian
jails for attempting to immigrate to Israel or aid others'im-
migration. Their trial had been rumored to begin for the
past month, but as of last week an Ethiopian source knew
of no such trial, the spokesperson added.
Jewish Centers To Prohibit Smoking
NEW YORK (JTA) A JWB committee has recom-
mended that Jewish community centers and YM-YWHAs
prohibit smoking inside their buildings and develop pro-
grams on smoking cessation.
The recommendations of the Health, Physical Education
and Recreation Committee of JWB the North American
association of 275 centers and Ys follow a JWB survey
on smoking.

Violence Centers Around Gaza
Cabinet Backs Unrest Policies
Friday, January 22, 1988/The Jewish Fleridfcq of being only
a means," he
The Israeli government fully
supports the strategies the
defense establishment is using
to maintain law and order in
the administered territories,
Premier Yitzhak Shamir said
He spoke after the Cabinet
devoted its weekly session to
the continuing disturbances
Shamir found it necessary at
the Cabinet meeting to
"clarify" persistent reports in
the news media that he had
proposed negotiating
autonomy for the Gaza Strip
once conditions there return to
normal. He supposedly made
that proposal at a meeting
with several visiting U.S.
senators, all members of the
Republican Party.
The prime minister said he
had merely noted to the
American lawmakers that
autonomy was part of the 1978
Camp David Accords, to be ap-
plied to both the West Bank
and Gaza Strip.
Negotiations between Israel
and Egypt began shortly after
Sinai was returned to Egypt in
compliance with their 1979
peace treaty. But the talks
were stalemated from the
start because of widely
divergent interpretations of
automomy by Cairo and
Jerusalem. The talks have not
The Gaza Strip continues to
be the main trouble spot.
Rioting broke out there last
Dec. 9 and has continued
almost unabated since then.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who briefed the Cabinet
after visiting the territory,
told the ministers that
religious incitement was one of
the factors behind the rioting
The muezzin who call the
faithful to prayer use the
loudspeakers mounted on the
minarets of mosques to exhort
Palestinian youths to battle
the Israeli security forces.
There has been heavy stone-
throwing and tire-burning
throughout the territory.
The 50,000 Gazan Arabs who
have jobs in Israel stayed
home Saturday (Jan. 9). Some
were observing the general
strike called by the Islamic
Jihad (holy war), a religious
fundamentalist group. Others
were afraid to go to Israel. The
taxis that usually take them to
their jobs came under hails of
Rabin warned the Arab
population that the longer the
riots continue, the more they
will suffer. He said the IDF
was determined to impose law
and order, but it would take
time. "It's not a matter of a
day or two, don't use a stop-
watch," he told reporters.
Rabin, addressing the Com-
merce and Industry Club in Tel
Aviv, stated that terrorist
agitators are not responsible
for the violence in the ter-
ritories. The disturbances
reflect tensions that have been
building there for more than
20 years and are not the result
of calls to violence by Palesti-
nian organizations, he said.
"The Palestinian terrorist
organizations trying to claim
credit (for the unrest) are ex-
aggerating,' the defense
minister said. His point of view
seems to conflict with that of
Shamir, who has blamed the
violence on the Palestine
Liberation Organizations.
In fact, the PLO appears to
have been left behind by
events and is trying to catch
up. Maariv reported that an
emergency session of the
PLO's Central Council, which
ended in Baghdad Saturday
night (Jan. 9), decided to sup-
port the uprisings in the ter-
ritories as a means to solve the
Palestinian problem.
Maariv quoted sources in
Baghdad assaying that the
PLO's top leadership made no
decision on whether to in-
troduce terrorist squads into
the territories to escalate the
"armed struggle."
Schiff also warned: "This
time, the demonstrators are
organized. It was therefore a
mistake to guarantee that
tranquility in the territories
was in the offing."

Rabin also called on interna-
tional institutions to help
finance the rehabilitation of
the Palestinian refugee camps.
He referred indirectly to
scathing criticism leveled
against Israel last week by a
visiting British diplomat,
David Mellor.
Mellor, minister of state for
foreign affairs, called condi-
tions in the Gaza Strip "appall-
ing" and an "affront to civiliz-
ed values." He also chided
Israel for allegedly taking
money out of the territory but
not putting any back in.
Mellor's remarks prompted
Shmuel Goren, coordinator of
governement activities in the
territories, to suggest that the
time has come for foreign
guests visiting the refugee
camps to help the persons they
define as "poor refugees."
The Israeli news media
reported that all males in the
El-Nasser refugee camp in
Gaza were arrested Saturday
night. Haaretz reported that

orders to fire their weapons at
rioters only if their lives are in

Why Have A Tampa
Jewish Federation?
The Tampa Jewish Federation is the cen-
tral coordinating and social planning agency
for the Tampa Jewish community. Through
the Federation's efforts, Tampa's Jewry
unites for a common purposes: to help Jews
live with pride, in safety and without want,
wherever they may be.
The Tampa Jewish Federation raises funds
in cooperation with the United Jewish Ap-
peal. These dollars raised are allocated locally
and to the United Jewish Appeal: The United
Jewish Appeal in turn dispenses funds to the
United Israel Appeal, the Joint Distribution
Committee and to HIAS to guarantee quality
service delivery to Jews living abroad.
None of the funds raised on behalf of the
Tampa Jewish Federation go towards
military use anywhere or anytime. Federa-
tions are the only vehicle that can quickly and
effectively mobilize people and raise the
necessary dollars that preserve the Jewish
lifeline in the U.S., Israel and in the Diaspora.
New Directions/New Hope. Forty years
ago, the United Jewish Appeal called on the
American Jews for "deeds of sacrifice, vision
and leadership." The foundation of a new
Jewish future was laid ... Eretz Israel ...
the Third Commonwealth. Today the House
of Israel stands.

Two thousand years ago, G-d and Abraham made a

through our culture and religion and it is a critical
component which makes Judaism a very special

mitment and responsibility to fellow Jews has not.
Historically we did not need Jewish communal
organizations, since we lived in self-contained com-
munities and provided for one another. This was not
always by choice; anti-Semitism and denial of citizen-
ship forced us to assume the responsibility to be our
"brother's keeper."
Today, we live in a free society and we have many
choices. One of these choices is whether to associate
with fellow Jews and another choice is whether to
continue to assume Jewish communal responsibility.

President's Message:
President. Tampa Jewish
Forty years ago, a
dream became a reality
when Eretz Israel was
recognized as a country.
The creation of the State
of Israel became a symbol
of the Jewish past, present
and future. Forty-seven
years ago another dream
became a lifeline to Jews
living in Tampa, Israel and
the Diaspora because it
had the ability to mobilize
Jews and to raise funds.
This special edition of the Floridian is designed to
give you insight into what the Federation stands for.
You will have an opportunity to see what our com-
munity raises and learn where the money is allocated.
The 1988 campaign has set as its goal $1,370,000.
This is 18 percent over what was raised in 1987, and is
based on very reaistic requests from our community
agencies. These additional dollars will enable our com-
munity to mee the critical needs that have gone
unmet because of the shortfalls in previous
The goal, and our success in reaching it, will be an
indication of how seriously the Tampa Jewish Com-
munity, now numbering near 12,000 individuals, will
take their responsibilities as Jews.
We have many commitments to our elderly, our
youth, Israel, and Jews throughout the world who de-
pend upon us.
We welcome your involvement and input and con-
tinue to appreciate your Commitment to our Jewish
community. Please take the opportunity to be a vital
component of the Jewish lifeline today!

Women's Division
Today, I live in a world
where so many women
seek to have a separate but
equal identity with men.
Many of these women
want access to the same
jobs as men; they want
their voices to be heard;
and they want to be
counted, based on then-
own credentials. I ask
myself then, why do so
many woman challenge
the importance of the
women's Division of the
Tampa Jewish Federation?
The same women who seek their identity through
memberships in Sisterhoods, Jewish women's
organization and Museum Guilds are so often the
same women who question the validity of Women's
Division. I ask myself why this occurs and my way of
justifying the women's non-involvement is that they

other worthwhile causes. YAD serves as a formerly
missing link for those young Jewish persons who are
too old to be involved in Jewish youth organizations
such as B'nai B'rith and fraternities and sororities but
not yet ready to dive into Federation roles.
During the past 4 years YAD has shown impressive
growth. While struggling through the start-up pains
that all infant organzations experience, it has manag-
ed to consistently increase its membership each year.
As for its own campaign, YAD can boast of a 40 per-
cent increase in-pledges last year and hopes to in-
crease this amount by another 25 percent this year for
a total of $82,500.00
Under its currently president Mark Carron, YAD
hopes to involve even more young Jewish persons in
their programs in 1988. If you are a new arrival to
this city or a native and would like to become involved
or simply be placed on YAD's mailing list, please call

Why A Business and
Professional Women's Group?
A recent study of American women revealed that
more than 60 percent of all women work outside the
home. This flood of women into the workforce is one
of the single most outstanding phenomena of the
twentieth century. The members are still increasing
and it is projected that by 1990, 80 percent of all
. Jewish women will indeed be working outside their
As women are entering
the marketplace, the tradi-
tional volunteer base is
shrinking for all Jewish
communal organizations.
These women are a part of
the community, yet too
few communities have in-
cluded them within the ex-
isting structure; they are
valuable assets and much
needed by their local com-
munities and UJA, but
their time is limited.
Tampa, as in other parts
of the country, has
organized a Business and Professional Women's Net-
work to meet the needs of working women. The group
has offered the professional women an opportunity to
be involved in Jewish communal life within a time
frame that is convenient. B and P offers the chance to
identify not only as a working woman, but also as a
Jewish professional woman. Our B and P group is
unique because it provides Jewish identity and con-
tent, an ambitious campaign goal of almost double
that of 1987, a sense of common heritage and tradi-
tion, a means of participating in all facets of Jewish
communal life, as well as professional enhancement.
We welcome all working women to come for our
programs and help to further develop the Business
and Professional Women Network of the Tampa
Jewish Federation.

Pope Asked To Condemn New Italian Anti-Semitism
ROME (JTA) The chief
rabbi of Rome, Elio Toaff, has
criticized Pope John Paul II for
failing to speak out against
iti-Semitism at a time when
iti-Semitic threats, graffiti
and, in a few cases, violence
are spreading here and in
ither major Italian cities.
Toaff, whose remarks ap-
peared in the newspaper La
(epubblica, also lashed out
ainst the Italian news media
their coverage of Israeli
aldiers battling Palestinian
ioters in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. He claimed it was
biased against Israel and
largely responsible for inflam-
ing anti-Semitic passions in
Italy in recent weeks.
Toaff said he himself has
received hate mail, "We hoped
that the pope would have said
a word to restore peace and
justice, but it didn't happen,"
the chief rabbi said.
A resurgence of anti-Jewish
sentiment has alarmed' the
Jewish community. Graffiti
have appeared in Rome, Milan
and Bologna with such slogans
as "Israelis kill Palestinians
Jews will pay" or "Dirty Jew, assassins.'

Graffiti Arouse Warnings of Anti-Semitism In Italy
ROME (JTA) The ap-
*arance of swastikas and
iti-Semitic graffiti in Rome,
lilan and Bologna earlier this
lonth has prompted warnings
)f an upsurge of anti-Semitism
wng Italians, especially the
r right.
Leading Italian newspapers
id commentators attributed
graffiti to neo-fascist
roups. Some say they were
roused by the daily media
coverage of tough measures
phe Israeli security forces have
(en to quell Palestinian
ting in the West Bank and
Jaza Strip.
Alfonso di Nola, a prominent
listorian, told the newspaper
lorriere delta Sera that "in-
)lerance against Jews is in-
creasing in Italy." He observ-
that "every time Israel
inters into conflict with the
Palestinians, there is an up-
surge of racism."
According to Di Nola, "In
[Rome, the graffiti appear
mainly in areas where there is
I a strong fascist presence."
Slogans such as "Bum Jews"
and "Jews To The Ovens"
have been spray-painted or
scrawled on walls along
Rome's Via Ottaviano and in
Milan and Bologna. They often
are accompanied by swastikas
or the symbols of right-wing
and neo-fascist groups.
These slogans have ap-
peared on the walls of a Jewish
school in Milan and on shops.
Voce Republican*), the official
newspaper of the Republican
Party, attributed them to the
neo-fascist Italian Social
Movement (MS). The paper
spoke of a "lynching" mentali-
ty and "anti-Jewish reflexes"
almost everywhere.
Tullia Zevi, president of the
Union of Italian Jewish Com-
munities, said that "with the
end of the (Christmas/New
Year) vacations it will be
necessary to reinforce
vigilance in the schools." The
Italian Federation of Jewish
Youth condemned the
"manifestations of intolerance
and discrimination" and called
"on all responsible powers"

"There is great hysteria in

According to Toaff, this
crude anti-Semitism is a direct
outcome of media coverage of
clashes in the administered
territories. He charged that
the news was presented in
"inappropriate, ideological,
preconceived language."
Specifially, he said, "I saw
with my own eyes television
reports based day after day on
the same pictures, the most
bloody ones. However, I saw
no mention of deaths on the
Israeli side, not even that

He was referring to an
Israeli woman from Alfei
Menashe in the West Bank
who was burned to death with
her child when the family car
was fire-bombed last spring.
Toaff said the news media
were using the same condem-
natory language against Israel
as they did at the time of the
September 1982 massacres in
the Sabra and Shatila refugee
camps in Beirut. "The situa-
tion, whether you like it or not
is different," he said.
"I am not a Jew with a
persecution complex," Toaff
said, "but reports like this kin-
dle the flame of anti-Semitism,
which here, like anywhere, is
smoldering under the ashes."
He added, "This time I hope
reason prevails before there
occurs another tragedy,
another death.

Rabin Stands Firm On Territories
Outside, two dozen pro-
testers, moet wearing the
black-or red-checked ke/xyah
headdrefjsea lone a symbolic
pert of Yasir Arafat s war-
drobe, chanted "Long life the
PLO!" "Long live Palestine!"
Inside, Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin defended Israeli
policies in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip, territories ad-
ministered by Israel since the
1967 Six-Day War. Referring
to the deaths which have
resulted as police and the army
dealt with repeated rioting in
the areas, he said: "It is pain-
ful to both sides, the Palesti-
nians ... to the soldiers and
Eriicemen who had to maintain
w and order, to come into
confrontation ... We are
sorry about the loss of life of
Nevertheless, Rabin said,
"My conscience is clean." He
was not responding to the
Washington demonstrators,
nor even so much to his au-
dience at the Brookings In-
stitution, but to U.S. officials.
Some had expressed concern
during Rabin's mid-December
visit about "harsh" Israeli
methods used to deal with the
mostly young Palestinian Arab
Standard procedure calls for
the use of rubber bullets, tear
gas and warning shots before
firing at rioters. But Israel,
the Defense Minister asserted,
cannot allow "use of public
disorder and terror to show
that those who want, and
carry them out, can achieve
their goals by these means ...
We have to make it clear that
the only way to solve the pro-
blem is through peace negotia-
tions with Jordan, with
Palestinians who are not

;,.. we; learned, the hard way
not to give in to the use of
force and to the use of terror."
After gaining the territories
in the 1967 war for survival,
Israel had three options, Rabin
It could have annexed them
unilaterally, extending Israeli
citizenship to those Arabs who
would accept it. Or, Israel
could have withdrawn
unilaterally from Judea,
Samaria and Gaza
redividing Jerusalem and
returning to a condition of ex-
treme geographic vulnerabili-
ty. It chose the third option: in-
stituting a military govern-
ment legal under interna-
tional law and holding the
status of the areas open pen-
ding negotiations.
If Palestinian Arabs and
some Arab states have grown
increasingly frustrated with a
political impasse which breeds
economic and social troubles
as well, the fault is theirs,
Rabin said. He pointed out
that the Arab side first re-
jected partition of Mandatory
Palestine in 1948, launching
and losing a war against the
newborn Jewish state.
Every year from 1949 to
1967 Israeli governments pro-
posed peace on the lines that
existed, when the West Bank,
Gaza and east Jerusalem were
in Arab hands. The offers were
rejected, Rabin noted. And "if
the heart of the Arab-Israeli
conflict is the Palestinian pro-
blem .. why was there no de-
mand then to make a Palesti-
nian state" of the West Bank
and Gaza, he asked.
Israel's peace with Egypt
showed what can be achieved
by Arab leaders with courage,
Rabin said. Meanwhile, the
police ajid military authorities
will use "whatever is needed"
to try to preserve order for all
residents of the territories.
One of those in the audience,
Anthony Lewis, wrote in his
Dec. 17 New York Times col-
umn that "anyone who hoped

claimed that "the obstacle to
negotiation now is the divided

charged that the country real-
ly has chosen a fourth option

But the week before Anwar
Sadat's trip to Jerusalem,
most Israelis could not have
envisioned returning the Sinai
for peace with Egypt. Because
of the asymmetrical nature of
the conflict, it remains up to
the rest of the large Arab side
to make a bold, convincing
move for peace.
As for Jewish settlers, Lewis
advanced a sort of racist
presumption that it is all right
for hundreds of thousands of
Arabs to live in Israel, but all
wrong for Jews to live in the
West Bank and Gaza.

The legal basis derives from
the British Mandate's defense

those very same regulations
were applied to deport

On the diplomatic front,
Israel's expulsions have
elicited uniform condemnation
from its Western friends and
allies. It is based on the
Geneva Conventions, especial-
ly the Fourth Convention of
1949 on the rights and obliga-
tions of occupying powers,
which states that deportations
must not be carried out from
territories occupied during
Israeli officials and experts
on international law point out
that the relevant text
paragraph 49 refers to the
mass deportations of popula-
tions from territories of
another nation captured in
Foreign Ministry legal ex-
pert Ronni Sabel stresses that
neither the West Bank nor the
Gaza Strip can be regarded as
"foreign territory" and that
there is no question of "mass
deportations." The expulsions
apply only to a relatively few
agitators and ringleaders.
An Israel Defense Force
spokesman further narrowed
it down to "particularly
disruptive individuals" in "ex-
ceptional circumstances, when
previous means have proved
insufficient to stop activity
presenting a clear and present
danger to the security or
public safety of the region."
Sabel observed that the dif-
ferentiation between "mass
deportations" and the expul-
sions ordered by Israel has
been borne out by the Interna-
tional Red Cross and promi-
nent international legal
It has also been upheld by
numerous rulings of Israel's
Supreme Court.
Moreover, the court rulings
extend the safeguards of due
legal process to potential
deportees. They may appeal
the expulsion orders to a
military board of review and, if
unsuccessful, to the high court
Sabel and other Israeli
jurists also maintain that
Israel is not "deporting" in-
dividuals in the generally ac-
cepted meaning of the word.
Rather, Israel is transferr-
ing West Bank residents (who
still hold Jordanian passports
and are governed by Jordanian
law), administered by Israel in
a territory not incorporated in-
to Israel, from one part of
what Jordan still considers its
territory to another part of
that territory across the Jor-
dan River.
According to Sabel, refusal
by Jordan to accept such in-
dividuals would be illegal,
because no country may, under
international law, refuse to ac-
cept its own citizens deported
from another country.
But that reasoning has
dangerous pitfalls. It can be in-
terpreted as implying that the
West Bank remains a part of
Jordan, a view that is
anathema to Israeli right-
If Israel has to incorporate
the West Bank, as the right-
wing parties demand, it would
be deporting its own citizens,
and Jordan would have the
legal right to refuse to accept
To resolve the dilemma,
Israeli officials say the political
echelon must seek a com-
promise between the demands
of the Defense Ministry and
the military authorities, who
stress security with little
regard for Israel's image
around the world, and those of
the Foreign Ministry, whose
prime concern is diplomatic
In addition to the nine
Palestinians under deportation
orders, there are presently
about 50 in administrative
detention, according to
sources in the IDF.
This, too, is a holdover from
the British Mandate, which
allows preventive arrests and
detentions for up to six months
without formal charges.
Other punitive measures
allowed are restricted
movements and bans on travel
abroad for persons classified
as "political subversion ac-
tivists" who, the IDF says,
"may exploit stays abroad for
the escalation of such subver-
sive activity."
Palestinian Journalist
Pushes For Boycott
four-stage civil disobedience
campaign in the administered
territories was announced
here by East Jerusalem jour-
nalist Hanna Seniora.
He said it would begin with
the ultimate aim of ending the
Israeli occupation by making it
"unprofitable." But judged by
the lack of response in the
Palestinian community, the
project may be stillborn.
Seniora, the editor of the
Arabic daily Al Fajr, met with
foreign correspondents. He
had intended to hold a full-
scale news conference. It was
deferred and then canceled,
because, according to Seniora,
"the authorities prevented a
number of people from taking
But it may well have been
Arab skepticism about the
campaign that forced its
cancelation. Several leading
Palestinians played down the
importance of the move.
Hikmat al-Masri, the Israeli-
appointed mayor of Nablus
who is deputy speaker of the
Jordanian Parliament, said
Seniora's announcement was
"symbolic" and has no prac-
tical significance.
Seniora said the campaign
would take the form initially of
a boycott of Israeli-made
cigarettes. He observed in that
connection that the late Indian
independence leader Mohan-
das Ghandi "started off with
salt, and the Palestinians will
start with cigarettes."
The second stage of the cam-
[)aign is to begin two weeks
ater, when Palestinians in the
territories stop buying Israeli
soft drinks. Then they will stop
paying taxes. The final stage,
according to Seniora, will be
an Arab boycott of their jobs in
