A Challenge to Health Professionals
A donor to the Federation
Combined Jewish Appeal
campaign has issued a challenge
to all health professionals in
Pinellas County.
Recognizing the importance of
the health services community,
this donor who prefers to
remain anonymous has under-
taken to match, dollar for dollar,
the increase over last year in
what physicians, dentists and
other health professionals give to
the 1984 Federation campaign.
Should the health services
community give, for example,
S100.000 more than last year, this
donor will give an additional
SI00,000 (over and above his
regular gift to Federation) in
honor of that achievement.
"This is a challenge to all of us
and now is the time to meet the
challenge," said Dr. John Rinde,
Chairman of the Health Services
Division of the 1984 Federation
campaign. "Our fellow Jews in
Israel and around the world, as
well as our own community agen-
cies, are depending on us. Our
support for Jewish survival is
needed more than ever and
this year we have the opportunity
to see Federation get two dollars

Tough Questions
Herzog Cements Relations
With Liberia, Zaire
President Chaim Herzog
has returned to Jerusalem
from Monrovia, Liberia,
ending a week-long African
tour which also took him to
Zaire. Liberia and Zaire are
the first and so far the
only Black African
nations to resume the
diplomatic ties with Israel
which they broke during
the Yom Kippur War in
The trip resulted in
strengthening Israel's com-
mercial as well as diplomatic
relations with the two countries.
Officials accompanying Herzog
signed a number of trade
agreements with Zaire and
Liberia which call for the
marketing of Israeli products in
those countries and the dispatch
Schindler Urges Mubarak
Retract His Statement
NEW YORK (JTA) Rabbi Alexander Schin-
dler, president of the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, has called on President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt to repudiate a statement attributed to him by King
Hassan of Morocco that "For Egypt, Camp David is
dead. This is so because it has obtained all its fruits.
Egypt has recovered its occupied territories. It recovered
its petroleum. Because of this, the substance of Camp
David has been drained."
SCHINDLER CABLED Mubarak urging him to
disavow this statement. "If not, your statement deals a
serious blow to the painful struggle for peace in the
Middle East and betrays the ideals for which your noble
predecessor, Anwar el-Sadat, was martyred."
The Reform leader also noted that Mubarak's senior
foreign policy adviser, Osama el-Baz, announced in Cairo
on Friday, a day after the Islamic Conference decided to
invite Egypt to resume its membership in the
organization from which it was suspended after signing a
peace treaty with Israel in 1979, that Egypt planned to
meet with Jordan and the Palestine Liberation
Organization to work out a new approach on negotiations
with Israel on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
SCHINDLER, in his cable, asked Mubarak: "Do you
really expect Israel to accept you as an honest broker in
such negotiations? Should Israel take still further risks
for Peace when your words make a mockery of Egyptian
of Israeli experts to advise them
on agriculture and in other fields.
HERZOG and President
Samuel Doe of Liberia signed a
wide-ranging cooperation
agreement committing Israel to
help Liberia in a number of
orojects. They include the
establishment of a national bank,
development of a new electric
power network and the con-
struction of 480 kilometers of new
highways. In addition, a joint
Israeli-Liberian company was set
up to develop the rice crop.
Liberia hopes eventually to
export 100,000 tonfofrice a year.
Herzog was the first non-
African leader to visit Liberia
since Doe, a soldier, seized power
in a coup four years ago. Israeli

An Apology
We express our deep apologies to the Jewish community of
Pinellas County for the glaring typographical errors in the
headlines of the last two publications, as well as the errors
appearing in the columns of these same issues.
We are embarrassed by the unpardonable carelessness of our
staff. We likewise express our remorse to the President of the
Jewish Federation, its officers and board of directors for any
embarrassment caused.

From the Rabbis Desk
Bar/Bat Mitzvah-How Familiar Is It Really
Widows and Widowers
Support Group To Meet
It has been with a deep and
truly penetrating sense of disdain
and chagrin, that I have watched
the "Mitzvah" totally disappear
from the original concept and the
ceremony of both Bar-Bat
Mitzvah. I recall quite vividly,
when parents and families were
imbued with a sense of "derech-
eretz" or good manners and
would ascertain that Judaism's
teachings and the rabbi's usual
reinforcement of these laws, were
part and parcel of their child's
heritage and legacy at least for
that 24 hour period of the Bar-
Bat Mitzvah. This always in-
cluded a Kiddush-Luncheon in
the synagogue, which in Jewish
life is a "Seudat-Mitzvah" or a
repast fulfilling a G-dly com-
mandment, in which the cel-
ebrant, their family, rabbi and
hazzan led the gathered
congregants in Kiddush, Ha-
Motzi and Birkat-Hamazon as
Judaism dictates.
In today's secularistic society,
I have seen the movement to
minimize the synagogue Kiddush
and maximize a luncheon in a
commercial establishment which
extinguishes the sanctity and
holiness of Shabbat and evinces
the negativism of the entire
ceremony. The child is usually
cast into a doubtful state,
depleted of any and all Jewish
feelings which might otherwise
have been implanted, as they
view anything but a feeling of
religiosity about them!
The Bar-Bat Mitzvah
ceremony which we witness in
American Jewish life, is relat-
ively new. The Bar Mitzvah, as
we know it today dates back to
the fifteenth century and the Bat
Rabbi Sherman Kirshner
Mitzvah really did not take hold
in this country until some 35-40
years ago.
It is quite true, that the
biblical and Talmudic origins of
this entire concept, go back some
two mUlenia, when reference is
made to Eleazar Ben Shimon's
ruling that a father is not legally
held responsible for the actions of
his son, past the age of 13.
The Talmud in Kiddushin,
ruled that young men at 13, and
young women at 12, had reached
the age wherein they must
assume religious responsibility as
well as puberty and ultimately
The Mid rash relates to us, that
the age of 13 was a crucial time
for a young man, in that
Abraham was 13 when he
rejected his father's lifestyle of
idolatry. Also at 13, Jacob and
Esau too chose to go their own

In the synagogue of
year, and in some
congregations today, we find the
blessing which was always pron-
ounced by the young man's
father, still utilized: "Blessed be
he who has now ridded me of this
responsibility" This refers to
his son's now having his own rel-
igious duties and responsibilities,
and is thus, considered a mature
young adult.
Surprisingly, in the Shtetel of
Eastern Europe, most Bar
Mitzvah boys did not celebrate
their Bar Mitzvah on Shabbat
morning, as is the Ameican-
Canadian custom But rather
were called to the Torah and
received their first "Aliyah" on
the Monday or Thursday mor-
ning when the Torah is read,
following their birthday. The
family tendered some schnapps
and pastry or perhaps herring
too, and thus concluded the
youngster's entry into adult
Jewish life, as he officially was
not counted for a minyan and was
able to "don tefillin" as part of
his daily ritual of prayer,
stressing the fact that he was of

Israel have become associated

tions the Kotel-Western wall
in Jerusalem, and the historic
masada. just south of Jerusalem.
We, living in western societies
celebrate our Bar-Bat Mitzvahs,
in the synagogue. (Generally
Saturday mornings for boys and
Friday evenings for girls.)
In my humble opinion, the Bar-
Bat Mitzvah ceremony had the
potential to embed and emblazon
Jewish youth with a positive
outlook and with serious Jewish
goals. Many of the young people
whom I was privileged to prepare
and to lead through their respec-
tive ceremonies told me that their
parents regarded this as the end
of any and all formal Jewish
education. The rabbi has lost the
battle, before he begins!
The time has come to re-
evaluate the rabbis words as
found in the mishna of Avot.
"Shlosh-esreh l'-mitzvot"
upon attaining his 13th birthday,
a young person is ripe and ready
to assume G-d's commandments
upon themselves.

Endowment Development Tops $2 Million
At the TOP Jewish Founda-
tion's quarterly meeting, held
Jan. 5, it was announced that
through December, 1983 the
combined total of endowment
gifts developed by each parti-
cipating community passed the
two million dollar mark. Accord-
ing to Abe Wise, Orlando, TOP
President, this figure represents
a combination of cash gifts, real
estate, closely held corporate
stock and other securities. "It is
quite interesting," said Wise,
"That each community has had
success in different areas of its
endowment development
program. Endowment gift
support for a community is not
only measured by what is in the
pot today, but the potential for
the future."
Reporting for TAMPA, BUI
Kalish stated that its current gift
total is only $134,000 out of the
total of two million. Kalish indic-
ated, however, that Tampa con-
tinues to get deferred gift
commitments via bequests in
wills, life insurance and other
deferred gift vehicles. "Because
estate planning is usually a
confidential matter between
attorney and client," said Kalish,
"We can only estimate the poten-
tial value of these commitments
to Tampa's endowment fund
based on what we know about.
Using that as our barometer, we
estimate the value at over
$2,000,000." Tampa's goal is to
improve its efforts in securing
current gifts while continuing to
encourage people to perpetuate
their communal financial support
by naming TOP as a beneficiary
of a part of their estate.
Bruce Bokor
In ORLANDO'S report it was
noted by Joe Wittenstein,
Endowment Development Chair-
man, that his community's
success has been more in the area
of getting current gifts. "Our net
portion of the TOP total is
roughly 1.17 million dollars,"
said Wittenstein. "As a result of
some hard work, throughout the
year on the part of our trustees in
cooperation with Joel Breitstein,
we secured over $430,000 in gifts
during December. We are excited
because we are the first of the
three participating communities
to break the $1,000,000 barrier in
current total community endow-
ment gifts."
Bruce Bokor, Chairman of the
PINELLAS Endowment
Development Team also reported
some successful results. "During
the month of December, we
received close to $150,000 in new
gifts or additions to "funds"
already on the books. There are
several leads that Joel Breitstein
is currently pursuing that hope-
fully will take our community
over the $1,000,000 mark in the
near future.
In other business, the Founda-
tion board reviewed a new
development program involving
State of Israel bonds. Joel Breit-
stein, Executive Director of TOP
and Endowment Development
Consultant to each Federation
pointed out that part of TOP's
general investment portfolio
consists of over $100,000 worth of
Israel bonds.
"These bonds," stated Breit-
stein, "pay a return to Founda-
tions favorable to other invest-
ments in the market place. As
part of our endowment develop-
ment program we are encourag-
ing those people in our commu-
nity who invest in Israel bonds to
invest in TOP for the benefit of
his community's endowment
fund and let TOP invest in the
bonds. By doing this in lieu of or
in addition to buying the bonds
directly, the donor gains three
major benefits: 1) the gift to TOP
is fully tax deductible (buying an
Israel bond is not); 2) the gift to

The total also includes $20.6

created to improve the quality of
life in Israel's distressed neigh-
borhoods, he added.

explained. ".Cash is the fulfill-
ment of that promise. We can
take pride in what we have

that much still remains to be

A 'New Germany'
Kohl Seeks to 'Deepen' Friendly Relations With Israel
Chancellor Helmut Kohl
of West Germany arrived
here last week for a five-day
official visit declaring that
he came "as representative
of a new Germany" and "as
the heir of the late Konrad
Adenauer, whose name is
enshrined as one who
opened relations between
our two countries. We now
want to deepen the friendly
relations between us."
Kohl, accompanied by his wife
and a large entourage of West
German officials, was greeted by
Premier Yitzhak Shamir at Ben
Gurion Airport. Each leader
delivered a formal statement,
Kohl in German.
SHAMIR, speaking Hebrew,
observed that they had much to
discuss and said that they would
discuss international and Middle
East problems, relations between
Israel and Europe and bilateral
relations between Bonn and
Kohl is the third West German
Chancellor to visit Israel since
the State was founded 35 years
ago. Adenauer was the first,
though he came after leaving
office, and former Chancellor
Willy Brandt was the second, 11
years ago.
Kohl said he welcomed Israel's
invitation and hoped his visit
would serve as a "bridge over the
terrible abyss of the past." He
stressed, in his remarks, "Israel
is an important country for us.
The people of Israel are close to
our hearts. We have followed
closely the development of Israel
and its upbuilding. It is our hope
you can live in peace and
observed that "Israel lies in an
area which we, and our neighbors
in Europe have special interest in
its stability. We are therefore
concerned that efforts made to
ensure a just and lasting peace
are continually set back. All
concerned should therefore bend
their efforts to seeking solutions
which will give the peoples of the
area the possinuty of
together, within
borders. Only through a
arrived at by negotiations, ac-
ceptable to all, can the peoples of
the region be freed from the yoke
of war."
He added, "We, the Germans,
are prepared to play our part,
together with our partners in the
European Community, to bring
about such negotiations."
Kohl, who heads the con-
servative Christian Democratic
Union (CDU), is regarded as a
friend of Israel. He and Shamir
engaged in intensive talks during
his stay in the country. The
Israeli leadership intended to
make clear its absolute op-
position to West German plans to
sell arms to Saudi Arabia, or any
other Arab country still
technically in a state of war with
Israel. The Israelis expressed
concern that the Saudis will be
offered Germany's Leopard II
tank, regarded by experts as the
best of its kind in the world.
ALTHOUGH the Leopard II
is reportedly no longer on the
Saudi shopping list, the Germans
are said to have offered to sell
them 300 anti-aircraft tanks and
missiles in addition to other
military hardware. Kohl
reportedly made such commit-
ments on his recent visit to Saudi
Arabia and agreed to military
cooperation with the Saudis. The
Germans contend that these
weapons are solely for defense
purposes. The Israelis claim that
any weapons in Saudi hands will
one day be used against Israel.
The West German
Ambassador. Hans Nielson, said
in a recent interview that his
government would fully take into
account "Israel's legitimate
security interests." Deputy
Foreign Minister Alois Mertes,
who is accompanying Kohl, said
in Bonn that the Israeli position
would be given due consideration
when Germany reevaluates its
Middle East policies after Kohl's
Another issue on the Kohl-
Shamir agenda was Israel's
request for West German support
to protect Israeli agricultural
exports to Europe after Spain
joins the European Economic
Community (EEC).
STRINGENT security
measures were taken to protect
the West German visitors. At
least 1,000 police were assigned

I'm asking is that you do not

Kohl's first stop on his arrival in
Jerusalem. The 53-year-old
Chancellor was in his teens when
World War II ended with the
downfall of the Third Reich. He
was therefore the first West
German leader who had no adult
experience of the Nazi regime.
Nevertheless, his visit is
haunted by Germany's past.
Many Israelis are still bitterly
opposed to any ties with Ger-
many. Several anti-German
demonstrations were planned,
and members of Betar plastered
posters with the yellow Star of
David along Kohl's route from
the airport to Jerusalem. They
were promptly removed by police
who made it clear they would
tolerate no unauthorized
Nevertheless, the West
German flag was conspicuously
rare at the airport, in the street
and at the Yad Vashem. The
German national anthem was
played at the airport arrival
ceremonies. Kohl referred to it as
"music by Haydn which opens
with words recognizing the
importance of fraternity, justice
and freedom." The anthem is
known the world over as
"Deutschland Ueber Alles."

Holocaust Survivor Gathering
In Miami Beach
The first statewide Holocaust
Conference-Survivor Gathering,
on Sunday, Feb. 26 and Monday,
Feb. 27 in Miami Beach, will be
under the auspices of the
American Gathering of Jewish
Holocaust Survivors, the New
York-based organization that
organized last year's historic
gathering in Washington which
attracted 20,000 survivors and
was addressed by President
Keagan. Entitled "The
Holocaust: Reality of the Past;
Implications for the Future." the
major event is being sponsored
by the Zachor Institute for
Holocaust Studies of the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation.
"This regional conference is
very important because it will
bring all of us survivors
together,'' said Ben Meed,
president of the most important
areas for such a gathering
because it is the home of many
Holocaust survivors the sur-
vivors have the ultimate respon-
sibility of bearing witness and
perpetuating the memory of the
rich Jewish life and culture
destroyed by the Holocaust."
The conference will feature a
variety of workshops and
seminars approaching the Hol-
ocaust and its meaning in history
from several perspectives. A
highlight of the event will be a
private showing of "The Precious
Legacy: Judaic Treasures from
the Czechoslovak State
Collections, which will be on
display at Miami Beach's Bass
Museum of Art
Mark E. Talisman, the in-
dividual most responsible for
bringing "The Precious Legacy"
to this country, will lead the
private showing of the exhibit
and is the conference's keynote
speaker. Chairman of Project
Judaica and Vice Chairman of the
U.S. Holocaust Council.
Talisman will discuss "The
Precious Legacy: A Gift Of
Life." Ironically, the collection of
350 artifacts, selected from
145,000 objects, was the result of
the Nazis' efforts to establish a
"museum to an extinct race."
In order to attract educators
lrom all parts of the state, the
second day of the conference will
focus on teaching the Holocaust,
with several workshops and panel
discussions geared to this end.
Some of the foremost authorities
who will be conducting sessions
during the conference include:
Menachem Rosensaft. chairman
of the International Network of
Children of Holocaust Survivors;

ferkorn, professor at Tel Aviv
University and consultant to the
U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Council; Gene Greenzweig,
executive director of the Central
Agency for Jewish Education;
Dr. Helen Fagin, Director of the
Judaic Studies Program at the
University of Miami and Robert
Maland, vice chair of the South
Florida chapter of Children of
Holocuast Survivors.
"The Zachor Institute was
created to preserve the memory
of the six million Jews who
perished in the Holocaust and
humanity's sense of conscience,"
said Ezra Katz, president of the
Institute. "This conference will
allow us to confront the in-
comprehensible tragedy and evil
of the Holocuast side-by-side
with the wellsprings of our
creative survival Jewish
learning, Jewish education and
Jewish culture through which
so much can be accomplished."

Youth Aliyah's Golden Jubilee
Anniversary, Sunday March 4 at

is a most important project of
Hadassah, the Women's Zionist

testing and teaching methods,
and emphasis on social devel-
opment and peer relationships in
residential settings later
extended to all-day centers
became a pilot program for
educators, youth workers and

being of the total child.

anniversary, the women of the St.
Petersburg Hadassah are
