Meet The Board of Directors of
The Jewish Federation of South Broward
Dedicated, Committed, Proud and Jewish
Imagine 60 dedicated men and women working together for a com-
mon cause a Jewish cause.
Indmduals gathered in the community from throughout the world -
native Flondians, New Yorkers, Europeans all working toward one
Committed people from a variety of professions -1 physicians
lawyers, businessmen and women, retirees all joined together for a
united goal. **
Truly "one people" committed to "one destiny."
This, in essence, describes the 60 men and women on the Board of
Directors of the Jewish Federation of South Broward.
They are dedicated, committed, proud and Jewish.
"The Jewish community needs individuals with this kind of commit-
ment, said Sumner G. Kaye, executive director of the Jewish Federation
of South Broward. "Our leaders give the Federation and United Jewish
Appeal campaign its direction."
Kaye said the Federation is always seeking future lay leaders to move
up through the ranks and eventually serve on the board.
"Board members not only make financial contributions to the
UJA/Federation campaign, but even more importantly they are active in
the Jewish community and Federation activities," Kaye said.
Dr. Saul Singer, president of the Federation, said people get involved
because they art committed and dedicated to the Jewish community.
"They understand the extraordinary problems facing World Jewry and
Israel, and they know their participation can make tne difference in the
quality of Jewisn life during the next decade."
"Board members, by example, believe in the spirit of volunteerism,"
Dr. Singer said. 'They as well as all our lay leaders who volunteer their
time are the ba:kbone of the Federation. They make the Federation
nembers are active because they are dedicated to the
we all must help our brethren," Dr. Singer said.
This issue of he Floridian is dedicated to the Board of Directors of the
Jewish Federation of South Broward. On Page 3 is a pictorial tribute to
our Federation Board members. Because several photographs were
unavailable at press time, we would also like to express our admiration to
the following board members whose pictures could not be included:

Congress: Old, New Battles Expected in 1986
By Judith Kohn
(Part One Of A Two-Part Series)
gress is back at work after a
month-long recess, and the retur-
ning legislators will immediately
set out to resume some old
unresolved battles and to wage a
few new ones in a session that is
expected to be the stormiest since
President Reagan took office.
The issues of special concern to
many in the Jewish community
are myriad and diverse, ranging
from tax reform to arms sales for
Arab countries, and from school
prayer to an international agree-
ment barring genocide.
But perhaps the greatest source
of anticipation in Washington
right now is to be found in legisla-
tion already adopted at the end of
last session. The controversial
Gramm-Rudman budget balanc-
ing law will force the Administra-
tion to reduce the federal deficit in
several stages over the next five
years, with automatic cuts applied
to government programs if Con-
gress fails to meet its mandated
And here, too, many American
Jewish organizations are sitting
on needles, waiting for some
definitive word on how badly
domestic social welfare programs
will be hurt, as well as what the
new law's impact will be on U.S.
aid to Israel.
The administration recently an-
nounced that the law will require a
budget-trimming for fiscal year
1986 of $11.7 billion. The cuts,
half of which must be taken from
the military budget and half from
non-military spending, will go into
effect automatically on March 1,
unless laws are enacted before
them that would reduce the deficit
by the same amount.
Reagan is expected to present
Congress with a budget for 1987
this month that will meet the
legislated requirement of cutting
$50 billion more out of the na-
tion's deficit. But if Congress and
the White House fail to thrash out
a final plan, automatic cuts will go
into effect across the board next
Of particular concern to many
Jewish organizations is the fate of
domestic social programs destined
to feel the sharp edge of the
Gramm-Rudman budget-cutting
scissors. Jewish groups active in
promoting social welfare pro-
grams fear that the expected cuts
this year will be devastating for
many of the nations' poor, among
them elderly Jews
Jewish Federations are "in
jeopardy of losing millions of
dollars," when the cuts take ef-
fect, according to Ellen Witman,
legislative director at the
Washington office of the Council
of Jewish Federations.
The Administration has already
withheld grants, normally renew-
ed on Jan. 1, for refugee resettle-
ment, money which is used by
Federation-funded agencies
primarily to resettle Jewish im-
migrants from the Soviet Union
and Eastern Europe, according to
Witman. Other Federation-
'Walkman' Talmud
Stereophonic Learning
By Daniella Niv
teenager lies on the grass outside
the building, "Walkman" ear-
phones on his head and a book in
his hands. At first glance he looks
as if he is relaxing between
classes, listening to the latest hits
while reading a novel. A closer
look reveals that he is actually
listening to the recording of a
lesson on a tractate of the
Talmud, which he is following in
the book.
Beit Midrash Torah (BMT), a
yeshiva in Jerusalem's Bayit
Vegan neighborhood, primarily
for youth from the diaspora, is in
the process of producing the en-
tire Talmud on cassettes. All the
recordings have already been
completed, and the institute is
now bringing out each tractate in
an attractive cassette binder,
complete with reading aids to help
the student follow the lessons.
Each month a new tractate is be-
ing produced, and sixteen of the
planned 30 binders are already
"The project is of recent vin-
tage," said Rabbi Moshe Horovitz,
director and founder of BMT, in a
recent interview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. "It started
off five years ago when we record-
ed individual classes." The project
snowballed thanks to the impetus
of a class of 15 boys who decided
to record the entire Talmud.
"We discovered that there was
a rabbi in Beit El, Shabtai Sabato,
who was also recording his classes
on cassettes. A contingent of boys
from BMT went out there to ask
whether he could give us copies of
his cassettes, and the upshot was
that Sabato came to BMT, bring-
ing his entire class with him to
work with us on the project,"
Horovitz said. "Our plans at first
were not so grandiose, but our
spiritual appetite grew with
The BMT now has a cassette
library and students can take out
the tapes of the tractates they are
studying. The project is in line
with the institute's concept of
learning: "The main goal of an
educational institute should be to
bring the student to the point
where he can do individual study
and research, where he is self-
propelled and disciplined,"
Horovitz pointed out.
The Institute, which is run by
the Torah Education Department
of the Jewish Agency, celebrated
the completion of the recordings
in the presence of the country's
two chief rabbis. "By then we had
the entire 'Shas' (the Hebrew
acronym for The Six Orders of the
Mishnah) on tapes," said
Sabato said he sat with his class
for a total of 3,000 hours, spen-
ding an hour on each page of
Talmud. Afterwards, the tapes
were spliced and edited, leaving
only the teacher's voice lecturing.
With each cassette encompassing
some two or three pages of the
Mishnah or Gemara, the complete
Talmud takes up exactly 1,000
"It is not intended to diminish
from the role of the teacher,"
Horovitz said. "On the contrary, it
is to serve as a teacher's aid and
not as a primary source of study;
the teacher guides his students in
the use of the cassettes." The
system, however, does not work
for everybody the student must
be self-disciplined to study by
himself with the cassettes,
Horovitz conceded.
Sabato also believes that the
modern technological aid does not
break down the traditional role of
the rabbi-teacher. "It restores the
Talmud to its original role: that of
the Oral Law," he said. It
strengthens, rather than
weakens, the role of the teacher,
since "the rabbi nowadays cannot
spend hours with his students, as
they did in medieval times when
every rabbi had perhaps three or
four students whom he taught
during his entire lifetime." Today
the teacher spends only few hours
a week with his students;
therefore the cassettes only
strengthen the bond, enabling the
student to receive more instruc-
tion, Sabato observed.
Recordings of the Talmud have
been bought from BMT and 10
cassette libraries have been open-
ed in Israel, Horovitz said. In ad-
dition, the Talmudic cassettes
have reached numerous countries,
and some have even been smuggl-
ed into the Soviet Union, accor-
ding to Sabato. He added that the
aid opens up new vistas for blind
students, who until now have had
no access to the Talmud.
While Beit Midrash Torah has
recorded the Mishnah and Gemara
in Hebrew, elsewhere in the world
recordings are being prepared in
English and in Yiddish. "Yeshivot
in the United States are now in
the process of recording the
Talmud in English and some tapes
are being prepared in Yiddish,"
Horovitz said.
"A student who comes from the
diaspora can study the entire
'Shas' in four years, even if he
does not have a good command of
Hebrew," Sabato observed. "To-
day, with the help of this modern
aid, there is nobody who can say:
"I would like to study, but do not
have means to do so.' "
funded programs that can expect
to suffer are housing programs,
foster care and adoption services,
and assistance projects to the

Many Jews already living below

among those who will be badly-
hurt by social service cuts in pro-
grams administered by .Jewish
and non-Jewish agencies alike,
Marc Pearl, Washington
representative of the American
Jewish Congress, pointed out. He
noted that 16 to 20 percent of
American Jews are either current-
ly below the poverty line or would
fall below in the event of another
Fears about Gramm-Rudman,
however, may prove entirely un-
warranted if a current lawsuit
challenging its constitutionality is
successful. But with or without
the new legislation, Congress can
be expected to take deficit-
reducing measures seriously this
Another source of anxiety for
many Jewish individuals and
organizations is the tax reform
issue, which will almost certainly
be taken up by the Senate Finance
Committee early on in the new
The House passed a bill to revise
the tax code just before winter
recess. To the relief of many
Jewish organizations it did not in-
clude a provision in a similar plan
proposed by the Treasury Depart-
ment that would have prevented
non-itemizing taxpayers from
deducting any contributions to
charitable instituions. The House
version would permit the deduc-
tions only after the first $100.
A coalition of some 600 Jewish
and non-Jewish philanthropic
bodies involved in welfare,
cultural, educational and religious
programs has vigorously opposed
the Treasury's proposal, claiming
it would substantially reduce
donations to charity.
The Jewish Federations, for ex-
ample, which raise more than
$600 million a year, could lose, ac-
cording to a study by the coalition,
over a sixth of their average an-
nual income.
But the provision is unlikely to
be included in the Senate version
either, Pearl speculated. There
are rumors, however that the
Senate might adopt an alternative
option of extending the $100 floor
to all tax-filers those who
itemize their deductions and those
who do not, according to Witman.
As the April tax filing deadline
approaches, Isriel Bond holders
will almost certainly be relieved of
a new tax burden of which most
are undoubtedly unaware. A pro
vision of the 1984 Deficit Reduc
tion Act would require lenders to
pay tax on the full amount of in-
terest they would get if the loans
had been made at prevailing
market rates.
If Israel Bonds are not exemp-
ted from the 1984 Act, Bond
holders would be required to pay
tax on mere interest than they ac-
tually earned, since the Bond's
four percent interest falls well
below the current approximate
market rate. This could result in a
loss of potential Bond purchases,
some members of Congress have
pointed out.
But the "imputed interest provi-
sion" of the 1984 law was aimed
against those who make artificial-
ly low-interest loans such as
those by parents of children in a
lower tax bracket as a legal
means of tax evasion, and was
never intended to affect Israel
Bonds, these legislators have
Accordingly, the tax reform bill
passed by the House includes a
provision correcting retroactively
the unintended effect of the 1984
Act on Israel Bonds.
The Senate Finance Committee
is expected to take up the Bonds
legislation as part of a separate
bill, in order to prevent it from
getting bogged down in wrangling
over tax reform, according to a
staff member at the Israel Bond
Organization office in New York.
Among other soon-to-be raised
issues in the domestic arena is
school prayer. The Senate is ex-
pected to take up the question of a
constitutional amendment allow-
ing silent prayer in schools,
sometime at the end of February.
Silent prayer has been- vigorously
opposed by major Jewish groups
as encroaching on the barrier bet-
ween church and state.
Pearl said that although it is dif-
ficult to tell at this point where
many of the votes will go, it is like-
ly that the proposed amendment
can be blocked.
"Who's for it?" Pearl asked,
noting that the staunchest sup-
porters of school prayer would not
be satisfied with only silent prayer
being permitted in the schools.

Fueling the Fire
By M.J. Rosenberg
Editor, Near East Report
Saudi Arabia's outspoken support for Libya's Colonel Khadafy
does not seem to have cost it any friends in the State and Defense
Departments. It seems hardly to matter that King Fahd reported-
ly told Khadafy that Riyadh would back Libya in any showdown
with the United States. Nor is there any apparent outrage over
Saudi sponsorship of anti-American (pro-Khadafy) resolutions at
both the Arab League foreign minister's meeting and the Islamic
The only thing that matters the only thing that ever seems to
matter is Saudi wealth. That wealth goes, in part, to support
PLO terrorists. But even more of it is strategically invested
throughout the West in general and the United States in par-
ticular. For much of official Washington, that wealth and those in-
vestments speak considerably louder than Saudi backing for
Khadafy and the PLO. Petrodollars have bought respectability in
Washington in very much the way that Libyan investments in Ita-
ly have bought Italy's long-standing silence in the face of Arab-
backed terror. Money still talks, and loudly.
That is why few people in Washington are really surprised at
the Reagan Administration's apparent decision to sell another $1
billion in sophisticated weapons to our Saudi "friends." Accor-
ding to press reports, President Reagan will soon be proposing an
arms package which will include 1,600 Sidewinder air-to-air
missiles, 800 Stinger anti-aircraft missiles, 95 Electronic
Countermeasure Systems for F-5's and F-15's, and upgrade kits
for 60 F-15's.
The decision to sell new arms to the Saudis contradicts a pledge
the Reagan Administration made during the AW ACS battle of
1981. At that time, President Reagan promised (in a letter to
then-Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker) that future arms
transfers to Riyadh would only take place if there had been
"significant progress" toward Middle East peace "with the
substantial assistance of Saudi Arabia."
You don't have to be an expert on the Middle East to know that
Saudi Arabia has done nothing but obstruct the peace process. It
funds the PLO and offers support to Khadafy. Perhaps even more
significant has been the Saudi role in ostracizing Egypt for mak-
ing peace with Israel and its continuing effort to keep King Hus-
sein away from the peace table.
Saudi Arabia's opposition to peace with Israel has been a consis-
tent one. Even King Fahd, not known for his radical rhetoric, has
promised that "the day will come when Israel will be finally li-
quidated." Last February, he said that "armed confrontation
against Israel" remains "an existing necessity."
So why is the Administration proposing to sell arms to a nation
that could very well use them against our ally, Israel? The answer
again lies with Saudi economic power. Appeasing the wealthy
Saudis is one of the few Washington practices that is bipartisan.
President Carter sold them F-15's and said that those planes
would somehow entice the Saudis into the peace process. Presi-
dent Regan sold them AWACS and put his promise about
Riyadh's future good behavior into writing.
None of this changed Saudi behavior at all. Nor will a new Saudi
sale. All more arms will accomplish is to help advance the day
when the Saudis can transform the rhetoric of jihad into its

A new book called Joshua's Dream by Sheila Segal is the
answer to a parent's prayer. That prayer has been for a children's
book that would explain what Israel is all about why it's there
and why a child should care. Joshua's Dream is that book, the best
children's book I've ever seen about Israel. Segal succeeds in con-
veying the mriacle of Israel's rebirth and she does it in language
that will move children and adults alike. It's a book that is essen-
tial if our children and grandchildren are going to understand that
the reality of Israel isn't in its politics, its military strategy, or in
its foreign policy. The reality of Israel is in the dream a dream
that must be passed on and lived generation after generation.

The above column appeared in the Jan. 20 issue of the Near East
Open Letter to U.P.I.
Dear Helen Thomas:
At his Jan. 8 press conference,
you asked President Reagan
whether Israel would accept the
existence of the Palestinians. An
important question but you
transposed the subject and the
As a veteran White House cor-
respondent, you must know that
the 40 years of Middle East pro-
blems you mentioned stem from
the refusal of most Arab states
and the organization which claims
to represent the Palestinian
Arabs, the PLO to accept the
existence of Israel. When Egypt
finally broke the solid wall of Arab
rejectionism and signed a peace
treaty with Israel in 1979, the
other 21 members of the Arab
League expelled it, and they have
not yet readmitted it.
The Arab refusal to accept
Israel has been clear and consis-
tent. In 1948, a day after the
Jewish state was proclaimed in ac-
cordance with U.N. resolutions,
the Secretary General of the Arab
League said as five Arab armies
invaded Israel "this will be a
war of extermination and a
momentous massacre ..."
With the exception of Egypt,
not much has changed. PLO
Chairman Yasir Arafat asserted
just three years ago that "It is in
my interest to have a war in the
region, because I believe that the
only remedy for the ills of the
Arab nation is a true war against
the Zionist entity."
Perhaps you forgot that the
PLO was formed in 1964 not by
Palestinian Arabs on the West
Bank and Gaza but by Arab
states. Its mission was not to
"liberate" the West Bank and
Gaza, then occupied by Jordan
and Egypt respectively, but to
conduct terrorism against the
Jews in Tel Aviv, Haifa and
Jerusalem. To this day the PLO
boasts of "operations" ter-
rorism against men, women
and children in "occupied
Palestine," meaning Jewish
towns like Ashdod, Afula and
Kiryat Shemona. That doesn't
sound like acceptance to me.
Ms. Thomas, you asked the
President how the Palestinians
should attain their "legitimate
rights" and "how do they rid
themselves of foreign occupation?
Should they emulate the
U.S.-backed freedom fighters in
Afghanistan, the contras in
No doubt inadvertently, you in-
sulted freedom fighters
everywhere by the implied
analogy to the PLO. The Afghan
mujahedin do not, as policy, shoot
up buses full of civilians in the
Soviet Union as part of their fight,
as the PLO does in Israel.
Although evidence on the con-
tras may be a bit murkier, ap-
parently they too do not make it a
rule of struggle to knife cab
drivers in the back, as the PLO
does in Israel.
When the Hungarians who
popularized the term "freedom
fighter" bravely took on the
Russians in 1956, they fought as
guerrillas and citizen-soldiers
against a colonial army, not as
gangsters against innocents. That
was, with very few exceptions,
how the Jews won their part of
Palestine from the British and
assorted Arab enemies and how
American patriots established this
country President Reagan himself
has labeled the PLO as a terrorist
organization and Secretary of
State Shultz has refuted the
slogan that "one man's terrorist is
another man's freedom fighter."
Probably you just misspoke.
As to the "foreign occupation"
the Palestinian Arabs are under,
as a reporter you must find it
curious that this issue was never
raised when Jordan held the West
Bank from 1948 to 1967 even
though only two nations, neither
Arab, recognized Jordan's annex-
ation. Israel came to control the
West Bank and Gaza after winn-
ing the Six-Day War, a war of self-
defense it launched when Egypt
closed the Gulf of Eilat and, along
with Syria and Jordan, massed
troops on Israel's borders. So
under international law, Israel re-
mains the legal administrative
authority and will until Jordan
and Syria (which lost the Golan
Heights) are ready to recognize
Israel and negotiate a com-
promise. That's what Egypt did
and it received the entire Sinai in
Meanwhile, the Palestinian
Arab residents of the West Bank
have a much higher standard of
living, a lower rate of infant mor-
tality and higher levels of educa-
tion than they ever did under Jor-
danian rule. And even under
Israeli military censorship, they
have the freest press in the Arab
world. Had they chosen to par-
ticipate in had the PLO allowed
them the autonomy talks envi-
sioned by the Camp David Ac-
cords, they would already be well
along the road to self-rule. You
asked the President if there was a
peaceful way for them. There was,
and they blew it.
Nonetheless, the Israeli govern-
ment has made clear it is still
ready to negotiate these issues
with Jordan and representative
Palestinians who are not ter-
rorists or members of terrorist
organizations. Time is wasting.
As Secretary of State Shultz
noted at his press conference Jan.
9, "Violence and terrorism in the
Middle East have not achieved
anything for the Palestinian peo-
ple. The only thing that can really
get anywhere is a negotiated solu-
tion. The states involved have to
be ready to sit down with Israel
and negotiate out their
differences ."
Before I close, Ms. Thomas, I
should mention two other points.
There are two Palestinian peoples
the Palestinian Arabs and the
Palestinian Jews. For decades,
until well into the 1950s, when so-
meone said Palestinian he or she
invariably meant the Jews who
were reclaiming part of their an-
cient land. The bulk of the Palesti
nian Mandate administered by
Great Britain more than 75 per-
cent already had been set aside

Dear Editor:
There are several answer to journalist Edwin
Black's attack on AJCongress for filing a lawsuit
against Chicago's municipal creche and menorah
at Christmas time. In the first place, it is not at all
clear that a lawsuit brought in the spring would be
considered in the federal courts. Problems of stan-
ding, ripeness and mootness would bedevil any
such lawsuit. A judge not anxious for controversy
and they are not uncommon could, and pro-
bably would invoke those doctrines to avoid
deciding a creche case brought in the spring.
Second, Black's claim that such suits invite anti-
Semitism is belied by the evidence. He concedes
that the American Civil Liberties Union suit in St.
Charles, Illinois, has not generated anti-Semitism,
despite the small size of its Jewish community. We
have seen no evidence of anti-Semitism in Chicago.
And it is not a common reaction elsewhere either.
Most particularly, Black offers no evidence that
there is a marginal increase in anti-Semitism
because of the filing of a lawsuit at Christmas, as
opposed to the very fact that such suits are filed at
all. School prayer cases are inevitably controver-
sial, sometimes generate anti-Semitism, and are
not brought at Christmas. Cases aginst other
religious symbols, not related to a particular holi-
day, also stir strong feelings. And Black never ex-
plains why a lawsuit brought jointly against a
creche and a menorah as was the case with the
lawsuit brought jointly against a creche and a
menorah as was the case with the lawsuit he is
discussing should create anti-Semitism in the
first place.
Third, while many people disagree with the
philosophy of church/state separation which
underlies "creche" (or menorah) suits, and many
disagree sharply, only a few from the fringe
engage in anti-Semitic activity. It ill-behooR the
Jewish community to be deterred from an elective
course of action in order to avoid the ravings of
that lunatic fringe.
Fourth, quoting an official of the Anti-
Defamation League, Black argues that creches are
not primarily a constitutional issue but rather an
insider-outsider issue a problem, he argues, for
community relations, not litigation. In this Black is
flat out wrong, because the constitutional problem
arises precisely because a creche sets up an in-
sider/outsider dichotomy. Justice O'Connor has
identified the constitutional vice of governmental
endorsement of religion in the fact that such en-
dorsement "sends a message to nonadherents that
they are outsiders, not full members of the political
community, and an accompanying message to
adherents that they are insiders, favored members
of the political community."
AJCongress is not insensitive to the concerns
Black raises. We have repeatedly urged Jewish
communities to proceed carefully when dealing
with religious symbols at the holiday season. Those
views are stated in a variety of places, including
our widely distributed pamphlet
Chnstmas/Chanukah: A Community Guide."
Those views shaped our response to a variety of in-
cidents this year involving public Christmas obser-
vances, including those in the public schools. What
is not acceptable is a total ban on Christmas season
Finally, since practically every reason Black
gives in support of a ban on creche litigation at
Christmas time is applicable to any and all chur-
ch/state litigation, one must ask whether his objec-
tion is to the time of the Chicago lawsuit or the fact
that it was brought at all.

The further away we get from
the actual events, the more
urgent, it seems, the questions
What did the world know and
when did it know it?
It's been more than 40 years
since the end of the period labeled
the Holocaust a period which
saw the world stand by while sue
million Jews were being
systematically murdered on the
sophisticated and cultured conti-
nent of Europe.
Yet it's been only in the past
few years that questions have
begun to be asked about how
much the world knew of the
events as they were unfolding.
And what those who did know did
with that knowledge.
In fact, last year may have
brought us the definitive answers
to those questions. David
Wyman's The Abandoment of
the Jews (Pantheon) is likely to
remain the most comprehensive
look at Amerian response during
the Holocaust.
But while no book is likely to be
as comprehensive, three new
books are valuable additions in
that they probe more deeply into
specific areas than Wyman was
Book Review
able to. And in so doing, they pro-
vide enlightening, and distress-
ing, new insights into the world's
lack of reaction to the slaughter of
the Jews.
Two of the books focus on the
press and the whats, hows, and
whys of its reporting of the
Holocaust and the events that led
up to it. Those are important ques-
tions, for in a free society, it is the
press, like nothing else, which pro-
vides the information by which
people can know what's going on,
and so can respond to what's go-
ing on. And their reactions, in
turn, then affect those of
The impact of that is shown all
too clearly in Deborah Lipstadt's
impressive Beyond Belief. In the
course of her exhaustive research,
Lipstadt, a professor at UCLA,
discovered that President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, from
1933-45, received a daily press
digest of news stories from
around the country. They gave
him a sense of the information
Americans were getting, and so a
sense of how Americans were like-
ly to react to actions he might
take or not take.
Lipstadt makes a convincing
argument that Roosevelt failed in
doing his job, in some measure,
because the press failed in doing
its job.
The book is divided into two
parts. The first focuses on the
period 1933-39 and the major
events that led to the Holocaust
the Nuremberg Laws,
Kristallnacht, the SS St. Louis in-
cident. Lipstadt's conclusion is
that while reporters on the scene

for the Arabs of Palestine in the
1920s as Transjordan, now
And although about 500,000
Arabs left the new state of Israel
in 1948, 800,000 Jews living in
Arab lands fled their ancient
homes leaving nearly
everything behind and made
their way to Israel. Such popula-
tion exchanges on much more
massive scale took place bet-
ween India and Pakistan, between
Poland and Germany, Turkey and
Greece, and elsewhere around the
world after 1945. Only the Palesti-
nian Arabs came to present an in-
soluble problem epitomizing the
Arab states' refusal to recognize
Israel. When the acceptance you
asked about replaces that refusal,
even this part of the problem may
be solved.

did a good job of providing infor-
mation about those events, it was
editors and columnists back home
who failed miserably in evaluating
the importance and implications
of that information. All too often,
Lipstadt shows how what should
have been major news stories
were buried on the back pages,
topped by ambiguous headlines,
and filled with disclaiming
In the second part of her book,
Lipstadt looks at the Holocaust
itself and shows how a fear of "be-
ing taken in" by anti-Nazis led the
press to an incredible "matter-of-
fact" response to the story of the
century. There was no lack of in-
formation about the genocide be-
ing carried out in Europe. But
because of the nature of the infor-
mation, most editors considered it
"beyond belief and so treated it
as just another story.
One example of many Lipstadt
provides is the New York Times'
decision to play a report on the
murder of one million Jews in
Poland on page 16 next to a story
on the hijacking of a coffee truck
in New Jersey. An illustration of
why so many were so ignorant of
so much.
While Lipstadt's research is
thorough, her writing riveting,
the real strength of the book is
that she lets the facts talk for
themselves. Hers is not a blanket
condemnation of the press but an
examination of how the press
works and a look at the tragic con-
sequences of when it doesn't work
as it should.
But while the reasons the press
didn't work are disturbing, they
take on more tragic dimensions
when those same reasons explain
the failure of a press one expects
to be more sensitive to the plight
of Jews. And that is what gives
Haskell Lookstein's Were We
Oar Brother* Keepers? its
special poignancy. For while
Lookstein also focuses on the
press and on the coverage of many
of the same events as Lipstadt, his
focus is on the Jewish press.
Lookstein, chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal's Rabbinic
Cabinet, looks at the performance
of the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy, which provides daily news
dispatches, four Yiddish
newspapers, 19 newsletters
covering all Jewish denominations
and major organizations, and
Jewish weeklies in Chicago,
Boston, and Philadelphia.

the Jewish press fell very short in
providing its readers with infor-
mation about the Holocaust. Its
failure, Lookstein shows convinc-
ingly, resulted from a desire not
to "make waves" for fear of
awakening anti-Semitism or
upsetting President Roosevelt,
seen as a true friend of the Jews.
Lookstein speaks with an ap-
pealing passion in asserting that
Jewish Americans did so little to
help their brethren in Europe
because they knew so little. The
press they counted on, through a
failure of both nerve and ability,
simply blew the biggest Jewish
news story since Moses at Sinai.
But that American Jews
weren't the only ones guilty of a
lack of response is clear from
Jewish Leadership During the
Nazi Era part of the Holocaust
Study Series.
The book contains five essays,
including one by Wyman, focusing
on the reaction of Jewish leader-
ship in the United States, the
Yishuv, Great Britain,
Switzerland, and Latin America.
While the information provided

focuses on individuals and
organizations unknown to
Americans and because it is
somewhat scholarly in tone, it will
be of less interest to the general

Church and State Debate Planned
For Feb. 26 at St. John's Lutheran
"Church and State: Challenges
for 1986," a community-wide pro-
gram on Feb. 26 at St. John's
Lutheran Church, will focus on
the on-going debate between the
church and state.
While the First Amendment to
the U.S. Constitution mandates
that government neither support
nor impede religious activity, the
actual interaction between church
and state has grown increasingly
complex. The question of religion
is not if it will relate to govern-
ment, but how.
On Feb. 26, the Rev. Charles V.
Bergstrom, executive director of
the Lutheran Council in the
United States, Office for Govern-
mental Affairs, will discuss these
issues with Hollywood Commis-
sioner Suzanne Gunzberger.
The Rev. Bergstrom has served
as a member of the Board and Ex-
ecutive Committee of People for
the American Way since 1980 and
was president of IMPACT INC.

Students, Melamdeen
Learn in Dor L'Dor
Fifteen high school students
and 15 dynamic older adults,
recently gathered together for a
unique experience. The students
were from the 11th grade U.S.
History class of the Jewish High
School of South Florida, and the
adults from the Dor L'Dor pro-
gram of the Jewish Federation of
South Broward.
Dor L'Dor is an inter-
generational program, under the
auspices of the Federation. There
are over 80 dynamic adults who
are called "Melamdeem"
(teachers), involved in the pro-
gram. These adults have par-
ticipated in programs with other
Jewish schools in the South
Broward community.
The students, who are studying
about modern American (WWI -
present), shared lunch and conver-
sation and discussed the dif-
ferences and similarities of their
lives. The "Melamdeem" brought
photographs depicting life when
they were teenagers and spoke
about the Depression and how the
war affected their beliefs and
ideas. The students were in-
terested in knowing what the
value of a dollar was, the kinds of
clothing that was popular in that
era, and how they spent leisure
time before television.
"We have so much in common,"
said Vivian Katz one of the
"Melamdeem." "Their music and
dress might be different, but
that's about all. We dated, attend-
ed school and had ambitions just
like the youngsters of today.
There is a kinship that I never
thought I could have with a
teenager. They were interested in
what I had to say," was another
response. "They didn't talk up or
down to us, but with us."
The students' reaction was just
as positive. "They gave us profes-
sional insight into how to have a.
good life," was one response. "I
learned a lot of things from them.
They have so much to offer," was
Selma Hopen, co-chairperson
with Rochelle Koenig and Bonnie
Weinreb, of the Dor L'Dor pro-
gram, thanked Stephanie King,
head of the Social Studies Depart-
ment and teacher of the U.S.
History class of the Jewish High
School, for the invitation extend-
ed to the "Melamdeem." She
spoke about the importance of the
generations sharing traditions
and experiences.
Sandra Ross, director of Educa-
tion for the Jewish Federation of
South Broward, remarked that
this is a beginning of a relation-
ship between our "Melamdeem"
and the Jewish High School. The
"Melamdeem" will be invited to
share their talents on an in-
dividual basis with the students.
Since this program was held on
"Eruv Tu Bishvat," Stephanie
King remarked that planting a
tree is something that one genera-
tion does for another.

(Editor's Note: The following column by Rabbi Chain Richter is a
special tribute to Rabbi Arnold Richter, who recently passed away).
On early Tuesday morning, Jan. 14, Rabbi Arnold Richter ascended
to the Yeshiva Shel Ma-Aleh, the Heavenly Academy. He is mourned by
his wife Marlene, his children Moshe and Shira, his brothers, Rabbi
Harold (Chaim) Richter, Albert Richter and Rabbi Yisroel Richter, his
in-laws Al and Gussie Williams, together with some 700 people who at-
tended his funeral.
Rabbi Arnold Richter had a gentleness about him, a quietness that
was rare in a macho society that prices assertiveness and even ag-
gressiveness. In some ways his life-style was that of a Zaddik (a saintly
individual) who could be appreciated in bygone Jewish generations; but
not fully understood in ours.
Fortunately there was a place for this gentle man of piety and com-
passion, the Orthodox Jewish Community of North Miami Beach with
its shuls in close proximity, Young Israel, Shaaray Tefilah and Torah V
Arnold Richter had read the Torah on Shabbos mornings in two of
these synagogues for several yean and there were many there who
could admire his modesty, his inner beauty and his infinite compassion
for people in need. Moreover, he was admired by his innumerable
students in recent years at Beth Shalom Academy of Hollywood and
Temple Beth Moshe of North Miami. For more than 40 of his 53 years
he taught Torah to Jewish children in a unique manner in which he
molded the traditional Jewish practices as well as the moral, philan-
thropic and sensitivity values of our faith.
He was very creative in his teaching of Bar-Bat Mitzvahs. He once
taught a rabbi who was tone deaf how to chant the Haftorah, (the pro-
phetic reading) by devising his own note system. He began teaching Bar
Mitzvahs prior to his own Bar Mitzvah and continued until the very
night before his death.
One would think that someone so humble, sensitive and unassuming
might pass from this world without being unduly noticed. But-on the
contrary-about 700 people including 70 students attended his funeral
and five rabbis gave eulogies touching on his saintlineas and influence
on his students.
To give his family some recompense for the far-reaching contribu-
tion Rabbi Arnold Richter had made to several South Florida Jewish
communities, a special Rabbi Arnold Richter Educational Memorial
Fund has been set up-for South Broward at Temple Beth Shalom, 1400
South Arthur Street, Hollywood, 33021; for North Miami Beach, Beth
Torah Congregation, 1051 North Miami Beach Boulevard, North Miami
Beach, Florida 33162, and for North Miami, Temple Beth Moshe, 2225
North East 121 Street, North Miami 33181. Checks are to be made to
the respective temples, earmarked for the Rabbi Arnold Richter Educa-
tional Memorial.
The tragedy of Rabbi Arnold Richter's sudden passing and the void
it created may awaken us to the need for the teaching of Judaism within
an atmosphere of profound spirituality and gentle humility.

King Forest
In Holy Land
The memory of Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. will be honored
by the establishment of a Forest
in the Holy Land of Israel. The
project, which will be im-
plemented by tens of thousands of
Americans along with the Govern-
ment of Israel and the Jewish Na-
tional Fund, will be located near
Hazareth, in the Galilee region.
This announcement was made by
Dr. Joseph Sternstein, National
president of the JNF, at a recep-
tion hosted by Ambassador Meir
Rosenne. The reception held at
the Embassy of Israel was spon-
sored in cooperation with the In-
ternational Association of Official
Human Rights Agencies and the
American Israel Friendship
Dr. Sternstein said, "the
establishment of a Forest in the
Holy Land is an ideal way to
honor the memory of Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. Further, this
meaningful act in memory of the
slain civil rights leader will be a
strong, symbolic statement of sup-
port for the dreams, ideals and
work of this modern hero. As well,
it is a positive step toward not on-
ly improving Black-Jewish rela-
tions and attitudes towards Israel,
but also to reinforce the historic
bonds that link them."

Phones to Ring in Record 150 UJA
Super Sunday 1986 Communities
NEW YORK, N.Y. With a
record 150 U.S. communities set
to participate in the United
Jewish Appeal's sixth annual na-
tional telephone marathon, Super

gear, according to Sanford L.
Hollander of MetroWest, New

UJA Super Sunday National
In South Broward, Super Sun-
day in scheduled for March 16.
Super Sunday is the single largest
national fund-raising event on the
UJA calendar, reaching more
givers and involving more
volunteers than any other.
As part of the preparation for
Super Sunday '86, three intensive
training workshops were held
recently in Newark, San Fran-
cisco and Orlando. The seminars,
designed to help communities plan
and implement their Super Sun-
day programs, attracted 148
Super Sunday chairmen, other
campaign leaders and profes-
sionals from 45 communities.
"Last year, more than 39,000
volunteers in 146 U.S. com-
munities exceeded our goal by
raising almost $38 million," said
Hollander, a UJA National Vice
Chairman. "This year, we hope to
reach more people and raise more
money in a single day than ever
before a projected $40 million.
The Jewish Federation of South
Broward raised about $350,000 on
Super Sunday last year.
"When the people we call on
Super Sunday respond to those
ringing phones and the messages
from their friends and neighbors
about Jewish needs in Israel, in
their own communities and
around the world, we know they
will be generous, and Super Sun-
day will again surpass its goal.
This year's motto," Hollander ad-
ded, "will be realized: '. .When

150,000 members have participated in our tours to Israel, as well as to
l countries on six continents. Tours which have earned the reputation

it is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive for the creation of a
lewish homelandin Palestine; to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
; throughout the rest of the world.
it was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
jf Israel is unqualified and fundamental We have been, and remain, an
integral part of the Mid-East peace process. At home, we are not afraid
|to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
le courts and out. all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
it does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration of our concern for, and interest in, world Jewry would be to give
)ur membership the opportunity of traveling to Israel and many other
countries with Jewish communities. Since then, we have become the
world's largest Jewish travel program.
iat is so special about traveling with AJCongress?
Our tours are renowned for excellence, sophistication, innovation,
le and unnvaled value. Our members travel together, never with com-
mercial tour groups. Everywhere we go, we arrange unusual and special
?vents, briefings on local Jewish life, meetings with Jewish communities
lus visits to each country's most popular sites and attractions.

Only one out of 21 Ethiopian
young women, eligible to attend a
special course for Dental Assis-
tant, at the Hadassah School of
Dental Medicine, founded by
Alpha Omega Fraternity, had
ever visited a dentist before com-
ing to Israel last year, reported
Florida Broward County Region
But Dr. Jonathan Mass, head of
the Assistant and Hygienists
training at the Dental School has
faith that they can all become
good dental assistants for their
willingness to learn, their inate
politeness and their charm.
These women range in age from
20 to 40. They live in a hostel on
the Hebrew University Campus.
To help them adjust to western
thought and procedures the first
four months of the course is being
devoted to intensive studies in
Hebrew and English. Each
woman is being 'adopted' by an
Israeli enrolled in the regular
training course to further help
them orient themselves in a
strange environment. Their
course will last 14 months, six
months longer to give these
women in this pilot program the
best chance to succeed.
From never having seen a den-
tist to professional dental assis-
tant in a short span of years
sounds like science fiction. It's on-
ly part of the fascinating story of
Israel's newest immigrants the
Ethiopians and the many ways

The announcement of the din-
ner, which will be held at the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, was made
by Sam Rothberg, International
chairman of Israel Bonds, who
will serve as chairman of the Ben-
Gurion Centennial Dinner.
A number of the most promi-
nent leaders in world Jewry will
be honored at this double celebra-
tion for their outstanding service
to Israel, the Jewish people and
the community at large. Mayor

played a leading role in the foun-

the United States with Prime
Minister Ben-Gurion in 1951, will
be a special guest at the June 1
The Bond Organization's
celebration of Ben-Gurion's 100th
birthday will focus on his efforts
to lay the foundations of a sound
economy for the newborn state.

who proclaimed Israel's in-
dependence was concerned with
enlisting the resources of world
Jewry in the task of helping Israel
achieve a measure of economic
In September 1950, Ben-Gurion
convened a conference in
Jerusalem where he asked
American Jewish leaders to
undertake a public loan through a
bond issue to be floated in the
United States. To launch the
drive, Mr. Ben-Gurion put aside
affairs of state to come to the
United States to travel the length
and breadth of the country to in-
augurate this new program.
Ben-Gurion's May 1951 nation-
wide tour was to become legen-
dary, as many tens of thousands
turned out to salute and welcome
the first Israel Prime Minister as
he flew from city to city where he
was greeted by enthusiastic
crowds who thronged the streets
to take part in citywide parades in
his honor. He received the most
tumultuous reception in New
York where more than a million

ORT Schools Stressing Adaptabili
To Computer, Robotics Advances
(Organization for Rehabilitation
through Training) has expanded
computer literacy training pro-
grams for teachers throughout
the ORT global network in
response to the increasing em-
phasis on high-technology train-
ing at ORT Schools, according to a
report by Amerian ORT Federa-
tion president Alvin Gray, which
was presented at the organiza-
tion's national conference last
Gray, who will complete the
third year of his four-year term of
office at the AOF national con-
ference, notes that, "The ad-
vances in computer and robotics
training throughout the ORT
educational network present a
new challenge to ORT educators.
Because the body of knowledge
acquired by teachers is no longer
valid after a few years, they face
the risk of rapidly becoming ob-
solete. Thus the task of facing
ORT is how to help teachers to
develop their potential and adapt
themselves to the constantly
changing educational and
workplace environment."
Among the programs cited by
Gray is a training course for
teachers in the ORT Israel net-
work, the largest ORT operation,
developed by the Moshinsky
Pedagogical Center in Tel Aviv in
cooperation with the World ORT
Union. The new ORT Braude In-
stitute of Technology in Karmiel,
the 100th ORT school in Israel,
will serve as a regional educa-
tional center and provide training
programs in science and
technology for ORT teachers in
Israel and around the world.
"Teacher training will continue to
be an area of focus in the ORT net-
work," Gray said.
During the three-day con-
ference some 500 delegates from
AOF chapters and divisions
throughout the U.S. participated
in discussions geared to determin-
ing the future direction of support
for the ORf global network of 800
schools and training centers,
which provide vocational,
technical and Jewish education to
over 133,000 students.
Some 84,000 students study at
ORT schools in Israel, including
several hundred recently arrived
Jews from Ethiopia who attend
special ORT training programs in
Kiryat Gat, Karmiel, and
Netanya. ORT Israel has agreed
to provide vocational training to
400 additional Ethiopian im-
migrants at ORT schools.
"We are! all aware of the
changes that are occurring in the
workplace and the speed with
which theyf are altering every
facet of ouV- Hves," Gray says.
"The goal W ORT, for the im-
mediate and long-term future, is
to train Jewish students to
develop afid harness these
wonders and use
them as tobls for meeting the
challenges tjiat lie ahead."
According to Gray, meeting the
demands of a technological age
goes beyonil the acquisition of
new equipment and updating cur-
ricula. In addition to the need for
teacher training, the most impor-
tant challenge facing ORT today
is the teachpng of new skills re-
quired foil already existing
professions, j
The key Jto ORT's approach,
Gray notes, has been in providing
students with the basic tools for
thinking and understanding
language and concepts, which
enables them to further develop
their knowledge in any of the con-
stituent areas of a hi-tech subject.
Highlights of developments in
the past year include an increase
in the teaching of robotics and
computers throughout the net-
work. In Israel, computers have
been introduced into almost all
ORT schools. Computer-Aided
Design is being taught in ORT
schools in Netanya and at the
Syngalowski Center in Tel Aviv.
An electro-optics laboratory has
been installed at the ORT School
of Engineering in Jerusalem, and
Computerized Numerical Control
machines have been supplied to
ORT schools in Ein-Harad, Tel
Aviv, Netanya, Karmiel, Holon
and Bat Yam.
In the ORT France network,
ORT's second largest program
which trains 8,500 students, 20
departments were closed in metal
working trades that have become
obsolete, and 26 new departments
were opened in microprocessing,
electronics and data procesing.
Technological innovations have
been increasingly incorporated in-
to the curricula in Latin America,
where ORT students number
9,800 in Argentina, 6,700 in
Brazil, 1,400 in Chile, 8,300 in
Mexico and 5,700 in Uruguay. A
microcomputer laboratory was in-
stalled in Santiago, computer-
oriented business courses were in-
troduced in Buenos Aires, and a
course for systems analysts was
begun in Rio de Janeiro.
Computer and science training
at ORT Morocco, which educates
850 students, is already offered at
the boys' school and will soon be
extended to the girls' school. In
Italy, where 3,100 students attend
ORT schools, the computer
department has developed to the
point where other schools and
organizations consult ORT on the
establishment of computer
In all of the countries where
ORT operates, notes Gray,
technological training is acom-
panied by programs of Jewish
education as part of a comprehen-
sive curricula geared to the
development of thinking,
technologically-skilled individuals
who appreciate and value their
Jewish heritage.
