Larry Krug has been appointed

Campaign, said Elisa Greenberg,
The Premiere Division, one of
the largest and most important
divisions in the campaign, en-
compasses Medical Arts, Legal
and Financial, Real Estate,
Manufacturers, Retail, Upgrade,
and Retirees divisions. Mrs.
Greenberg, on making the an-
nouncement, expressed her grati-
tude that Mr. Krug has agreed to
chair this division. "I know that
Larry will do a thorough and
effective job in this position. He
and his wife Dell were on the
Pinellas mission to Israel this
fall, so he recognizes the need to
have a successful campaign. He
is a member of the Budget,
Planning and Allocation Com-
mittee, so he knows what a
painstaking process it is to al-
locate funds when there isn't
enough money to satisfy fully the
requests from our local agencies
and our national obligations."
Mr. Krug is a partner in Krug,
Berman, and Silverman, at-
torneys. His family has lived here
for 10 years, having moved from
New York. The Krugs have three
children, Ken, Sharon, and

Egypt Says Mideast Peace Requires
An Immediate Israeli Withdrawal
By YITZHAK RABI
UNITED NATIONS -
(JTA) Egypt maintains
that a solution to the Arab-
Israeli conflict requires an
immediate Israeli with-
drawal from all occupied
territories and says that it
supports "in particular"
the need to include the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization in any solution
to the conflict.
Addressing the General
Assembly debate on "The
Situation in the Middle East,"
the Egyptian ambassador,
Ahmed Tawfik Khalil, said that a
solution in the Middle East
should be based on the right of all
states to exist in peace within
boundaries and the return of all
occupied Arab territories, in-
cluding Jerusalem and the Golan
"Let us make room in the
Middle East for the Palestinian
people," he declared, "so thv
they too can establish their own
state and join the community of
Claiming that the Palestinian
problem is the core and cause of
the Middle East conflict, the
Egyptian diplomat said,
however, that there is a
unanimity of view in the world
that the conflict should be
resolved by a peaceful means. He
said that Egypt has "blazed a
trail for peace" in the Middle
East and vowed that it would
continue to work toward peace.
He was referring to the peace
treaty with Israel signed in 1979.
In the course of the Middle
East debate, the Soviet Union
blamed Israel and the united
States for the lack of peace in the
region. Ambassdor Oleg
Troyanovski said Israeli
aggression is to blame for the fact
that the Middle East conflict has
not yet been settled. He said the
U.S. shared equal responsibility
for the situation because it
provided the military and
economic aid that enabled Israel
to pursue this "adventurous
The Soviet Union, he con-
tinued, was ready to cooperate
with all who sought a con-
structive solution to the problem
and the establishment of a just
and lasting peace in the area.
On Nov. 29, the UN observed
the international Day of
Solidarity with the Palestinian
People, established by resolution
of the General Assembly in 1977.
The observance marked the 37th
anniversary of the UN decision to
partition Palestine into Jewish
and Arab states.

Board, appointed by the speaker
of the House and the president;
and the board of the John F.
Kennedy Institute of Politics,
In 1968, in conjunction with a
visit to Czechoslovakia with Con-
gressman Vanik, Talisman
visited the State Jewish
Museums of Prague, and in the
Meisel Synagogue became aware
of the rather extensive collection
of Judaica. After long negotia-
tions, Talisman, accompanied by
two scholars, conducted an offi-
cial visit to the State Museums
and discovered the existence of
over 145,000 pieces of Judaica
collected by Hitler to open a
"museum to an extinct race."
From 1979 to the spring of
1982, Talisman negotiated with
the Czechoslovak state authori-
ties for permission to select a
major exhibition of Judaic Art
representing 1,000 years of
Jewish life in Central Europe.
General agreement was
reached in May of 1982, final
agreement was reached in
August of 1983, and over 500
objects were chosen by a team of
curators led by Mr. and Mrs.
The exhibition, known as "The
Precious Legacy," under the
sponsorship of the Smithsonian
Institution Traveling Exhibition
Service, is appearing at museums
in several U.S. cities.

Does Anyone Like
To Solicit? Not Me!
By ELISA GREENBERG
1985 Campaign Chairwoman
Let's talk about soliciting on a
fundraising campaign. Dos
anyone like to solicit? I know I
don't. I doubt that anyone else
does. There may be one or two of
you out there who really look
forward to it and enjoy it, but I
have never met you or anyone
else who does.
Then why do we do it; why do
we volunteer to do something we
dread? Why do we torture
ourselves; why do we hype
ourselves and go out to solicit?
As far as the Combined Jewish
Appeal drive is concerned, we do
it because we are imbued with the
magnificent cause we represent;
because we believe in the critical
need for the end result and
because we are truly conscious of
the vital need to help fellow Jews

all over the world. Yes, we know
in our minds and in our hearts
there is nothing in this world as
important as seeing that the
State of Israel survives and our
local Jewish community grows.
Would you like to hear what I
experience when I go out on a
solicitation for the campaign?
Inwardly, I do it reluctantly, not
looking forward to having to
influence the prospect to give.
Nevertheless, I cover up my
timidity and proceed with as
much clarity and logic as I know
how, always trying to be low key.
I attempt to learn about my
prospect, if it is someone I do not
know very well or in some cases
not at all. I try to concentrate on
trying to create a rapport bet-
ween us, with emphasis on
mutual respect and trust.
At this point, after my initial
remarks, he usually makes his
first response, sometimes in an
objection form, sometimes with a
nod of agreement. Suddenly
something strange happens! As
he akes his first comment, gives
his reaction to what I have been
saying (even if it is defensive and
negative). I begin to enjoy the
meeting. It is now a challenge I
welcome, almost a contest that is
fun. I guess I am a little bit
competitive. I now rise to the
combat with relish and con-
centrate on getting the prospect
to believe as I do in our cause,
influencing him to share with us
the responsibility of aiding fellow
Jews all over the world.
I conceal from him my ex-
citement at the challenge and,
above all, I am careful not to
apply any visible pressure.
Whatever persuasion there is has
to be subtle and received in a
friendly fashion by the prospect.
Actually, let's be frank, all solici-
tations that are conducted
properly and effectively must
have persuasion to succeed. But
the persuasion must be so
smooth that it is not an irritant.
It must not destroy the pleasant
relationship I attempt to build
between the prospect and me.
Asking for the order, as they
say in business, or in our case
settling on the dollar amount of
his pledge is delicate. I say
something to the effect of "We
are making an extra effort thia
vear, raising our pledgee at least
20 percent. We hope you will
consider making your pledge for
1985 X-number of dollars.
Because of the words "hope you
will consider" or sometimes
"would you consider," there is
little likelihood he will become
upset and feel you are "telling
him" what to give. I am cautious
in never giving the impression
that I or Federation is "telling
him" what to give or what he
should give. This causes anger,
turns him off and usually results
in a poor unproductive solici-
After getting his pledge,
whether it's an increase or not
(though fortunately, more often
than not, it is an increase), I
experience a feeling of euphoria,

Super Sunday is spectacular!
In 1981, its first year on the
national United Jewish Appeal
scene, Super Sunday involved
more than 25.000 volunteers, in
over 100 communities, who raised
more than $19.1 million. Three
years later, in 1984, almost
38,000 volunteers in over 146
communities smashed all
previous records by raising $33.1
On Super Sunday 1985 the
national goal is to raise $36
million, and reach more Jewish
households in a single day than
ever. In Pinellas County, we
must do our share. Hundreds of

Recently, I heard about a
Christmas party held in the home
of a prominent member of our
Jewish community, here in
Pinellas County. It featured a
Christmas tree, exchange of gifts
under the tree, and other varied
rituals of the Christmas holiday.
From a Jewish standpoint, this
is an absolute disgrace! From a
Christian standpoint, this is an
out and out scandal!
Christmas is a deeply religious
holiday to Christians. It repre-
sents the birth of their Savior
Jesus, a member of the Christian
trinity. The ideas associated with

A Jew with a Christmas tree in
his home has in effect rejected

of God's name, did so in vain.
The tree is a major symbol of
that holiday. Its presence in a

incredibly naive, unbelievably
ignorant ... or what is more
likely compulsively desirous
of repressing one's Jewish roots,
and of professing a clear and
concise desire to assimilate with

Christmas has always been and
continues to be a religious
holiday, not a secular celebration.
To think otherwise is a direct
insult to our Christian neighbors.

CARMIEL, Western Galilee
- For Shorashim's 19 young
families, many of them Con-
servative Jews from North
America, the holding of a cere-
mony to lay the foundation stone
at their new industrial village in
Western Galilee's Segev Bloc was
like performing a brit mila in
honor of a long-awaited first-bom
child. "It's like the light at the
end of the tunnel," beamed
veteran, Texas-bo>, Sue Reiss,
formerly of San Antonio. "Sure
I'm thrilled. We've waited four
vears for this moment."
Sue's soft voice was drowned
by the swell of traditional Israeli
folk songs reverberating from the
improvised public address
system across the awe-inspiring
beauty of the surrounding valley,
while excited children rushed
around coordinating final in-
structions for a theatrical sketch
they were about to perform.
Attending the festifivites were
relatives and friends from neigh-
boring moshavim in the area, as
well as representatives of agen-
cies involved in establishing

Segev Bloc to the development
town of Carmiel, Moshav
Shorashim is today little more
than a barren hillock strewn with
construction materials. Skeletons
of 25 pre-fabricated homes
dominate the skyline, and
another seven will soon be added.
"This time next year we'll be
conducting our house-warming
ceremony," says Sue confidently.
Organized as a cooperative in-
dustrial village, Shorashim seeks
to combine high-tech industry
with quality community living.
Members currently earn their
livelihood from an electronic
assembly plant, a research
laboratory working on the
development of assorted optical
and communications instru-
ments, and a technical transla-
tion and editing service.
"Today you have staked a new
national landmark. You are the
future of Galilee and your suc-
cessful growth will help streng-
then the Jewiih population of the
region for generations to come,"
Victor Fonda president of JNFof
Australia, told the pioneers. "We
