New Activity Therapy Program Caters To Residents
Menorah Manor Resident
Betty Oslin pulled a strand of
colorful, shiny beads from her
bag and proudly displayed
them to her visitor.
"I make the necklaces up
here, then I sell them in the
Gift Shop," she said. "It gives
me something to do but sit idle
and watch the world go by."
Mrs. Oslin is one of 40
Residents who have rooms on
the Home's third floor, where
the more reticent Residents
live. Some are in advanced
stages of Alzheimer's Disease,
or have other brain disorders
that renders them uncom-
municative, unresponsive and
disoriented. Some need a
challenge like Mrs. Oslin,
and some need a bit more love
and attention than other
These are the Residents who
need concentrated, one-on-one
activity therapy to evoke
response and interest through
activities and recreation. To
meet the needs of these
Residents, Menorah Manor
hat instituted a new therapy
program headed by Ray
"It's a godsend," said
Teasdale of the program,
which is offered in addition to
fulltime regular programming.
"Before, there was no place
for those with potential and
need. Now, I can take the time
with them every day. There's
no leeway without
Teasdale began by dividing
the Residents into four groups,
depending upn their condition
and need. Then he devised
therapies relative to the group
and went to work. The green
group, or the more aware
Residents, utilize Reality
Orientation, which strives to
prevent confusion, helps retain
personal identity, encourages
independence, time
awareness, and socially ac-
cepted behavior, and builds
self-confidence, self-esteem
and dignity. For example, the
group meets each morning at
9:30 for a good morning ses-
sion. They discuss what's go-
ing on that day, what the
weather is like and share
"What we're trying to do is
get them to socialize with each
other," he said. "This is the
place to work it out, to give
those people time to feel im-
portant about themselves
The group also does a lot of
reading aloud, and then
discusses how the story relates
to their lives, which frequently
evokes past experiences and
reminiscence. The group also
has a daily afternoon meeting,
where they discuss how the
day has progressed, and in-
cludes mental stimulation, like
naming the 50 states in
alphabetical order.
"Our motto is 'If you don't
use it, you loose it,' Teasdale
Other groups utilize various
types of therapies such as sen-
sory stimulation, using three-
dimensional shapes, visuals,
smell, taste, hearing and tac-
tile stimulation; remotivation,
which, through group therapy,
gets Residents thinking about
reality in relation to
themselves; resocialization,
which allows Residents to
reach into their past and give
of themselves again; and
validation, which stresses the
concept of working wiht
Residents where they are and
validating their right to feel
what they are feeling.
For example, Residents in
the blue group may hold gloves
filled with ice to evoke sensory
response, or Teasdale may rub
lotion on a Resident's hand us-
ing tactile stimulation.
"What I'm trying to do is
evoke a response," he said.
HiM Seventh Graders, from left to right: Gideon Gluckman,

annual gym Show to be held on Monday, Feb. 2t at the Jewish
Community Center.
Vatican Official Meets
PLO Spokesman
ROME (JTA) The Vatican
received a top official of the
Palestinian Liberation
Organization on Feb. 4, ex-
plaining in a statement after-
wards that it "cannot remain
indifferent in face of the pain-
ful and worrisome events that
the population of the occupied
territories is living through."
Farouk Kaddoumi, the
PLO's foreign policy
spokesman, met with Ar-
chbishop Achille Silverstrini,
the Vatican's foreign minister.
A Vatican spokesman said
Kaddoumi "expressed the
gratitude of the Palestinians
for the moral support that the
Holy See gives to the cause of
the Palestinian people."
Pope John Paul II received
King Hussein of Jordan on
Feb. 1. Following that
meeting, the Vatican issued a
statement saying the Palesti-
nian issue was a "question of
international justice."
A statement issued by the
World Jewish Congress said
that "in receiving the PLO, a
terrorist organization, and
Kurt Waldheim, an unrepen-
tant Nazi, the Vatican of late
demonstrates a shocking in-
sensitivity to Jewish
The pope granted Austrian
President Waldheim an au-
dience last June at which the
pope praised him as a man of
peace. Waldheim is accused of
complicity in the deportation
of Greek Jews and other
atrocities when he served as a
German Army officer in the
Balkans during World War II.

Each Tuesday there is a van
outing to the mall, where the
Residents will visit the pet
shop and handle soft animals,
or visit the perfume counter
where a salesperson will help
them test scents.
"This is very important
because it's not me or a
Menorah Manor employee, it's
the attention of the salesper-
son," Teasdale said. "That
gives them their self-esteem."
When they visit the ice
cream shop, Teasdale has the
Residents order their own
selection. "A lot of those
choices are taken away frm
them when they enter a nurs-
ing home," he said. "The
potential for boredom could
exist, so we give them choices,
let them make the decision."
This is not the first time
Teasdale has worked with reti-
cent, uncommunicative in-
dividuals. With a human ser-
vices degree to his credit,
Teasdale has worked exten-
sively in the nursing home
field, as well aa with emo-
tionality handicapped and
autistic children. His energy,
compassion and knowlege of
his work promises a winning
combination for success. He
also possesses a certain
amount of patience, necessary
for a person in his position.
"There's a purpose to
everything we do up here," he
said. "It's a slow process, it's
not fast, and it's not always
response one day and none the
next. Then you have to start
all over again.
And although some would
say such hard work and devo-
tion is a waste of time.
Teasdale vehemently
"If one person says one word
I go crazy, because some of
these people never talk," he
said. "The main thing is to get
them to talk. It just takes
Rosemarie Dapice third floor
Nursing Care Coordinator, has
noticed an immense difference
in the Resident's attitudes
since Teasdale set his program
in motion. The third floor has
taken on a new look, with new
stereo speakers built by the
maintenance department, not
to mention the calmness and
even animation of the
"There is a tremendous dif-
ference notice on the floor,"
Dapice said. "Agitation has
decreased tremendously, and
the Residents are really
responding to the new pro-
gram. Ray is working closely
with the nursing staff, discuss-
ing how the Residents are do-
ing we're really working
hand in hand.
Other activities Teasdale
uses in his program are
visuals, music, exercise with
canes, and hand choir, which
involves memorising syn-
chronised movements with
musk using props.
Some Residents choose not
to become involved with the
program, so Teasdale visits
them in their rooms. He talks
with the Residents and takes a
balloon along with which to
play balloon volleyball.
Volunteers are needed to visit
the roms of these Residents,
and perhaps get them involved
through the one-on-one

Jewish Priorities In Changing Times
This article is excerpted from
the talk given by Nobel Peace
Laureate Elie Wiesel before
ADL 's National Executive
Committee meeting.
In Jewish tradition, defama-
tion is one of the worst sins
that can be committed
almost equivalent to murder.
The Talmud says one can be
in Rome and kill someone
thousands of miles away by
defamation. Simply by
defamation one can destroy in-
dividuals or communities.
What is anti-Semitism, if not
Theoreticians, philosophers
and psychologists have all
been involved in finding
theories to defame and
therefore destroy the idea, the
image, the psyche and the
eternity of the Jew. Living in
all lands of countries were peo-
ple who hated Jews they had
never met. They hated Jews
who were dead, Jews who
were alive, Jews who would
still be born. Why? Because of
For 40 years or more, I have
tried to find answers to the in-
numerable questions that deal
with the ultimate defamation
the Holocaust. None have
been answered. The more I
learn, the less I know. The
more I study, the less I unders-
tand. I do not understand how
it happened. I do not unders-
tand anything about it. I do not
understand the killer, nor the
victim, nor the bystander. And
I do not understand God.
Yet I try. I cannot unders-
tand, for instance, the silence
during the war. I cannot
understand the St. Louis
episode. In 1939, after
Kristallnacht, after people had
read about Hitler and his
pogroms, a ship, the St. Louis,
with 1,000 Jewish refugees
men, women and children
came to the shores of the
United States and somehow
the ship was sent back to Ger-
many with the refugees still on
board. How was that possible?
Why didn't the American
Jewish community send
100,000 people to Washington
to proclaim a hunger strike?
Today it would not happen.
Today the Anti-Defamation
League would mobilize the
population and see to it that
the ship would not leave our
The Jewish community has
become involved in a more
militant fashion. In France,
until 30 years ago, Jews were
timid, bashful, frightened.
They would never dare to
speak out against the govern-
ment. That was true in the
United States, too, but it is not
the case any longer. Now we
dare. We speak up when we do
not like what is happening in
Washington. Not just a person
or an organization but the en-
tire community speaks up.
Still the basic question re-
mains. How was the Holocaust
possible? We are concerned
when we read literature that
tries to deprive this tragedy of
its uniqueness. I am outraged
and we all must be when
we read that in Germany today
there is a movement to de-
Judaize the tragedy. I was con-
vinced that Germany at
least would have the decen-
cy to be in the forefront of the
fight for memory and remem-
brance. Not at all. There is a
battle among historians and
the prevailing opinion is that
the Holocaust was just one
tragedy among others. One
said that Stalin was worse
than Hitler because he created
a system of oppression worse
than Hitler's. That leaves a
very bitter taste in my mouth.
No Jew is guilty for what
happened then. But if we allow
the memory of the tragedy to
be trivialized, cheapened,
devalued and desacralized,
that will be our guilt.
Israel, which is the center of
our lives, whether we admit it
openly or not, is still in danger.
It is in danger because of inter-
nal struggles, because of
religious-secular conflicts,
because of Israeli-Diaspora
divisions and, above all,
because Israel is a small coun-
try and needs more strength to
feel secure. We must always
be sensitive to Israel's needs
and be there when we are
Russian Jewry. If anyone
had told me in 1965 that I
would see Russian Jews leav-
ing for Israel, I would not have
believed it. Yet 250,000 Jews
have left the Soviet Union.
Why? Because they,
themselves, had the courage
and the intensity to fight.
Before Solzheniteyn, before
Sakharov, before all the
dissidents, young Jews were
the first to defy the secret
police. They came out and sang
and shouted their Jewishness
and their allegiance to the
Jewish people, to Jewish
I saw them and I could not
convince myself that one day
they would be free. However, I
am also convinced that once
the high visibility refuseniks
are gone, Gorbachev will close
the door. What will we do
then? There are still three
million Jews in the USSR. I
think this is a battleground
where ADL will have to be
vigilant and show its strength
and its wisdom.
In the past, every Jewish
parent told his child: do not
forget that you are Jewish
wherever you go. Do not
forget that you are Jewish
whatever happens. You must
belong to the community, you
must claim kinsip with Jewish
destiny. We must perpetuate
that attitude. Whatever we do,
we must never forget that we
must do it as Jews. That does
not mean that we must con-
cern ourselves only with
Jewish issues. There must be
room in our hearts to think of
other people who suffer.
When I think of the Jewish
people, I have nothing but
gratitude. I have problems
with the world and often they
are justified. At times I even
despair. I think civilization
betrayed itself. I think culture
abdicated. But when I think of
the Jewish people it gives me
an impetus to smile. I cannot
teach anything Jewish to my
students without smiling. I
cannot study the Talmud
without smiling. There is
something very beautiful and
moving which is rooted in our
Jews everywhere today
want to learn. The children I
teach want to learn. When
they read about the Inquisition
they learn of the dignity that
our ancestors manifested. The
state was against us, the world
was against us. And we simply
said, "we are Jews" and with a
few words we resisted the
mightiest nations in the world.
This is what we must teach our
I believe in the community of
Israel. I could never imagine
Jews other than surrounded by
Jews. In joy as in sorrow, a
Jew is never alone. Just as
man needs other men to be
human, a Jew needs other
Jews to be Jewish. We choose
to define ourselves not in rela-
tion to the hate we elicit from
strangers but rather by the
faith that we inspire in our
own people.
A Jew alone is in danger. His
security lies within the com-
munity which helps him sur-
vive and to obtain fulfillment.
Community is the key word. It

Betar's Alternate Teen Experience Interest Free Educational Loans
Includes Trip To Russia

Betar, together with the
Jacksonville Jewish Federa-
tion, has developed two Israel
Teen Experiences for the sum-
mer of 1988. In addition to
"From Tragedy to Triumph" a
tour to Poland and Israel that
was highly successful last
year, an additional program
"An Encounter with Jewish
Heroism has been developed.
The new program will begin
with a week in the Soviet
Union meeting with Russian
Refuseniks, followed by five
weeks in Israel. Designed to
involve community teens who
already have been to Israel,
this program will focus in
depth on the life, government,
culture of the Middle East in
special seminars and activities
not available to first-time tour-
ing groups.
In the Soviet Union, par-
ticipants will be confronted
with the reality of Jewish life
in Moscow, Leningrad and
Kiev. Among the 2.7 million
Jews in the Soviet Union,
many constitute the epitome of
Jewish heroism today because
of their dedication to Judaism.
Participants will have an op-
portunity to meet and en-
courage these individuals in
their struggle to remain free
and Jewish.
"This is an excellent follow
up to the dramatic Washington
mobilization for Soviet Jewry
in December during Mikhail
Gorbatchov's visit to the U.S.
By sending a group of Jews
from the United States to visit
our brethren in the Soviet
Union we will be tangibly in-
dicating our support for their
cause," said Isaac Kakritz, ex-
ecutive vice president of the
Jacksonville Federation.
Last year the Betar and the
Jacksonville Jewish Federa-
tion sent 25 teenagers on its
initial Israel Teen Experience.
The group visited Auschwitz,
Maidanek, Treblinka and War-
saw, before spending five
weeks in Israel returning with
indelible memories of their
The Jacksonville Jewish
Federation together with
Betar has been recognized na-
tionally by the Council of
Jewish Federations, as well as
in Israel by the Jewish Agency
for its for sight and creativity
in developing this program.
Scholarships for both pro-
grams will be available
through the Jacksonville
Jewish Federation (for
members of this community)
and by Betar Youth Organiza-
tion to all Florida's

An Evening With Wiesel
Continued from Page 1
I characterize the world" was
the wording of the citation
from the Nobel Peace Prize
Committee in awarding Wiesel
the Peace Prize. Wiesel's im-
passioned plea to President
Reagan regarding Reagan's
impending visit to a military
cemetery in Germany was
telecast live, which was cited
at the time as a most unusual
handling of a protest being
made to the president of the
I United States.
Doug Cohen, president of
I the Tampa Jewish Federation,
said, "We are very fortunate
to have Elie Wiesel in Tampa
land to be able to present him
Ito the entire community. He
has become an American
I Jewish Folk Hero, often refer-
red to as "the conscience of
[contemporary world Jewry,"
|"the high priest of our genera-
ion," Kay Jacobs and Carole
Cherry are co-chairmen of the
evening, sponsored by the
Tampa Jewish Federation.
Presently on the faculty of
Joston University, Wiesel has
it at Yale University,
lorida International Univer-
sity and City University of
New York. He holds honorary
degrees from 40 universities.
Wiesel is known for his
books. Night, Dawn, The Acci-
dent, Ani Maamin, Zalmen, or
the Madness of God, The Trial
of God, are especially well
known among the over 25
books Wiesel has authored.
Three of his works have been
performed, Ant Maamin in
Carnegie Hall (with music by
Milhaud), Zalmen, was per-
formed internationally and
broadcast by the National
Educational Television Net-
work and The Trial of God in
Paris, Norway and Italy.
"This is a special opportuni-
ty to invite friends, neighbors,
and business associates to
spend a memorable evening
with one of the world's most
outstanding personalities,
stated Gary Alter, Federation
Executive Vice President.
"We encourage the entire
community to respond and
support this effort to bring in-
ternationally known speakers
to the Tampa area," Alter

indicates what paths to follow,
it opens hidden gates, it
bestows ancient strength on
everyday words. What would a
Jew be without his communi-
ty? A withered branch, a
nameless wanderer, buffeted
| by alien hostile destinies.
Together, Jews represent
I historical power, a collective
consciousness. Alone, we must
cope with our own weakness,
I together we are each other's
Iaffirmation. Alone we must
disappear. To be part of a com-
munity, to shape it and to
strengthen it is the most
urgent and vital obligation fac-
ing the Jewish individual. The
gravest sin that a Jew can
commit is to cut himself off
from the community. The
severest punishment that we
can receive is to be cut off, to
be excommunicated. To be
part of a community gives us a
sense of beauty and a sense of
history that no other people

How To. Get Involved By Caring
Jewish Family Services
"True Generosity requires
more of us than kindly impulse
above all it requires imagina-
tion the capacity to see peo-
ple in all their perplexities and
needs, and to know how to ex-
pend ourselves effectively for
them." I.A.R. Wyiie.
Sincerity lines his face and
commitment fills his heart, but
caring is what Anschel Weiss
is all about. The strength of his
convictions and the truth
behind what he believes are
readily apparent to those that
meet him. As Executive Direc-
tor of Tampa Jewish Family
Services, he actualizes his
need to "aid fellow human be-
ings, and help people achieve,
develop and grow to the best
of their ability for better com-
munity life."
With the highly skilled pro-
fessional staff, Dr. Weiss and
the Family Services are able to
offer young singles, families,
single parents, and older
adults, the greatest opportuni-
ty for a positive lifestyle. His
caring reaches far beyond the
scope of his workplace on
the older population. Dr.
Weiss feels "they are the car-
riers of tradition, heritage,
and often overlooked for the
rush of life."
Yet, their sucess is that they
have sustained a sense of pur-
pose by the mere fact of their
existence. They have main-
tained the identity of the Jews,
social causes and our culture.
"Our older population is filled
with knowledge and wisdom
and can enrich our lives if we
listen and give them the oppor-
tunity to participate. Our
Anschel Weiss, Ph.D.
senior citizens are entitled to a
life of dignity and to be regard-
ed with the respect and honor
due them" feels Dr. Weiss. "I
do what I can so that we can
look forward to those golden
years with a sense of purpose,
pride, and future!'
On singles and single
parents, he is just as strong,
stating, "Given the definite
changes in family structure
and respected personal life
styles that have taken place
during the past two decades,
we need to accept and ap-
preciate the important con-
tribution that singles and
single parent families can
make to our society. Their in-
terest, energies, and resources
have helped to both develop
and change the face of cor-
porate America to the profes-
sions. Our ability to involve
and assist these important
segmants of our population
may hold the key to the future
positive growth and develop-
ment of our community.
"As we are all part of the
community, we need to sup-
port and work for the benefit
of all." Our efforts must be
directed to support the com-
munity institutions so that
those who need assistance can
receive it with dignity and
respect. Tzedakah is justice,
righteousness and charity, but
they all require loving kind-
ness to make it operate and it
can't happen if people back
away from responsibility." Un-
fortunately, the frustration ex-
ists as the need for more fun-
ding increases. There is always
the need for more staff to be
hired and equipment purchas-
ed. This, however, has not
dampened Dr. Weiss' spirit.
Fortunately, he is able to see a
larger agency that serves the
needs of the community and
enjoys the recognition of a
quality counseling and com-
munity service. As Tampa
grows, it is important to have
a variety of services where
people can get help and not
struggle, a place which can
enhance family life and mental
Whatever free time he has is
devoted to his family time
then is split between reading,
study groups, and sometimes
when the warm breeze
beckons a wlak or job pro-
vides thinking time.

ty that cares," repeats
