The 1984 Combined Jewish
Appeal campaign has reached
$1,067,000 and surpassed the
1983 total, according to Stan
Newmark, Campaign Chairman.
Newmark said "The next eight
weeks are crucial to meeting our
1984 goal of $1,250,000. Our
campaign is in full swing, and for
the next several weeks campaign
workers will attempt to reach all
the prospects who have not yet
made their commitments."
The annual campaign began
with a successful and well-
attended Major Gifts Dinner and
has just completed the Premier
Division, which concluded with
the spectacularly successful Blue
and White Ball.
"Our goal is well within our
reach," commented Newmark, "if
every member of the community
does his fair share. If we convey
the importance of maintaining a
Jewish lifeline to those in need
here at home, around and world
and in Israel, then Pinellas
County will meet the challenge
and reach its 1984 goal of one and
a quarter million dollars."
Charles Rutenberg, Federation
President, commented "Stan
Newmark and his campaign team
have done a tremendous job this
year and the campaign will set an
all time high in funds raised.
However, we must and will push
to receive outstanding 1984 gifts

A tense situation has de-
veloped in south Lebanon
between members of the
United Nations Interim
Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) and Shiite
Israel's efforts to improve
relations with the Shiites.
There has been a series of
confrontations between UN
troops and Shiite militiamen in
the region south of the Awali
River. The latest occurred yester-
day when Shiites blocked a road
to halt a UNIFIL supply convoy
manned by Ghanaian soldiers. In
the ensuing clash, one militiaman
was wounded and three were
TIMOR GOKSELL, a spokes-
man for UNIFIL, has called on
Israel to restrain local elements
operating in territory occupied
and controlled by the Israel
Defense Force. Israel has had its
own trouble with the Shiites.
Initially they welcomed the
Israeli invasion of Lebanon in
June, 1982 because the IDF
drove the Palestine Liberation
Organization out of south
Lebanon. Later, however, strong
measures taken against terrorists
in the Shiite populated areas led
to clashes between Shiites and

its relations with the 400,000

An Investment In Your Community
Can Be An Investment In Israel
For Boys & Girls
It ia rare when you can use the

The TOP Jewish Foundation is
a non profit corporation formed
by the Federations of Tampa,
Orlando and Pinellas County to
help build endowment funds for
the future of each participating
Jewish community. With the
help of TOP, each community has
established its own endowment
gift development program.
Endowment gifts and the income
generated by further investment
are used to make a variety of
grants into the Jewish commu-
nity based upon needs that
cannot be met from other funds
and based on the recom-
mendation of participating
The Foundation has developed
over two million dollars in en-
dowment gifts. As part of its
overall investment portfolio, it
owns $110,000 worth of Variable
Rate Issue State of Israel bonds.
The Women's Division of the Jewish Federation recently held their
Paceseter Luncheon at the home of Judy Winer. Pictured are (left to

These bonds pay a return to
Foundations, pension funds, ana
the like that is competitive witn
other investments in the market
place. This interest rate is not
available to individuals.
At your request, your in-
vestment in the local community
through your gift to TOP can be
pooled with others to be further
invested in Israel through the
purchase of bonds. Unlike your
individual purchase of bonds,
whih is NOT tax deductible, your
gift to the TOP Jewish Founda-
tion is tax deductible. This may
be important to your annual tax
planning and reduces the cost of
this double investment by 50
percent, if you are in the 50
percent tax bracket.
TOP has many different en-
dowment gift vehicles for you to
choose from. Depending upon the
size of your gift to TOP, a fund
can be established in your name
or in the name of someone you
wish to honor. The annual income
from this fund could be used to
support one of your philanthropic
interests, or other endowment
projects already identified in
your community's endowment
Regardless of the type of
endowment vehicle you choose,
what is important is that you are
getting double the investment
mileage from the same dollar and
a tax deduction to boot. For

Confidential interview to determine student loans for Jewish school
Your Koved Fund
Bemice Bressler and Iris Lee of
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service, Inc. talk aboaut the
< needs of the Jewish community
in Pinellas County. "When you
look around this beautiful area
we live in it's hard to believe we
have families that are so hard up
they don't know where their next
meal is coming from, said
Mrs. Lee. We at Jewish Family
Service are faced with these
problems almost daily."
The Koved Fund is a program
sponsored by your Federation.
The money is given directly to
the Koved Fund and used to
support needy Jewish families in
Each person or family applies
to the Koved Fund for help and is
cleared through Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service, Inc. to
insure that other funds or ser-
vices are not available to these
people. The Fund is only used for
l emergencies and people can apply
for help only once a year.
Mrs. Bressler from Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service, Inc. talks
about the families that come to
her. "Divorced women trying to
support their children and unable
to meet a rent payment, come to
us for help. It seems that single
parent families are the new poor
of our society.
The ex-husbands leave and
stop paying support and these
women are left with few skills and
a family to raise. The Koved
Fund has been a life saver to
many of these people."
^^ Jewish people on disability
struggle trying to make ends
meet. With a cold winter like we
have just had, they are not able
to pay an electric bill and are
threatened with a cut-off notice.
With the recession still in
progress, there are people out of
work who need help. The Koved
Fund can keep them with a roof
over their heads, and has.
Please think of your Koved
Fund when you give an offering
in memory of someone who has
died. A gift to the Koved Fund in
someone else's name is a
thoughtful idea for the donor and
is much appreciated. Give to the

Yitzhak Rabin is one of the

creation, establishment, security

Palmach, a crack unit of the
Haganah. After an outstanding
career as a military officer, he
was Israel's Chief of Staff prior to
and during the Six-Day War.
A sabra utterly devoted to his
country and his people, Mr.
Rabin has travelled the length
and breadth of the United States

Truly, he has been a soldier on all
fronts, military, diplomatic and
