Committee Meets
The Nominating Committee of
the Jewish Federation met
recently to begin discussing the
nominations for the Board of
Directors and Officers for 1986.
The committee, consisting of
seven members, must present a
slate of directors to the current
Board of Directors for approval.
That slate will then be presented
to the Federation general
membership at least ten days
prior to the annual Federation
meeting. Elections will take
place at the annual meeting, to
be held on June 2.
Members of the Nominating
Committee are Elisa Greenberg,
Reva Kent, Julius Malkin,
Stanley Newmark, Charles
Ru ten berg, Leonard Seligman,
and Sidney Werner.
Jewish religious groups
must not slienate single women
An article entitled "Single
But Equal," appearing in the
Spring issue of "OUTLOOK"
just published by Women's
League for Conservative
Judaism, challenges Sisterhoods,
Synagogues, and other religious
organizations to integrate single
women as equal members within
the larger Jewish community. It
is up to these groups "to seek out
single Jewish members and to
ensure that their social, religious,
and spiritual wants are met to the
fullest degree possible," com-
munity health educator Marilyn
Auerbach says in her critique of
the status quo.
"Synagogues have been
notable for their adherence to the
traditional tenets of recognizing
in their structure only the family
composed of two parents and
their children," Auerbach states.
"Statistics demonstrate that this
'typical' family is an endangered
species. The Synagogue must
accept and encourage diver-
sification among its membership.
In doing so, it will weave a
stronger fabric for the total
Jewish community."
Auerbach warns that the
Jewish community will continue
to lose to secular activities and
organizations many capable and
committed Jewish women, unless
they are made to feel more at
home in Jewish religious life.

Local Congressman Participates
In Vigil For Soviet Jewry
"Being involved with the
community to help provide
services and support Israel is a
responsibility of being a Jew,"
said Leonard Seligman. "We
wouldn't exist without Israel,
and they wouldn't exist without
us." Those sentiments help
explain Len's involvement with
Federation, which has endured
Len was active in the Cin-
cinnati Federation, prior to
coming here and served as
President of Big Brothers, an
agency of the Federation. He
became aware of the Federation's
activities when he was involved
in the formation of a new temple.
He became President of the
temple, and a member of the
Federation board.
When Len, his wife Edie and
their sons Mark and Bob moved
to Clearwater nine years ago, his
activity in the Jewish community
continued. "There is a large
difference in the Jewish com-
munities up North and down
here. The northern communities
are established, have large
agencies, and large staffs. Here,
the community suffers from
growing pains. We provide
services, and our agencies do a
terrific job, but we must be made
aware of the support that our
agencies always need in order to
continue to provide high quality
service to the community."
Len is presently vice president
in charge of administration for
Federation, and a member of its
Nominating Committee. In
addition, Len has played a major
role in Menorah Manor, from its
inception to the reality of an
opening in May.
When Len and his family
moved here, they had a need for a
nursing home for his mother and
aunt. There was no Jewish home,
and Len expressed an interest in
pursuing the idea of constructing
one. He joined with other
prominent members of the
Pinellas community and set
about making the dream come
true. Together, these dedicated
individuals have raised over
$5,000,000 for Menorah Manor,
which is due to open in May. "All
you need is the willingness and
U.S. Rep. C.W. "Bill" Young
of Florida recently participated in
the Annual Congressional Fast
and Prayer Vigil for Soviet
Jewry. This was the third year
that Congress has held this vigil
to lend support to the millions of
Soviet Jews who are prohibited
from emigrating from the Soviet
Rep. Young; whose district
includes south Pinellas County,
participated in the vigil on behalf
of Nadezhda Fradkova, a 38-year
old computer analyst who has
been denied permission to
emigrate since 1978, when she
first made her request.
"The case of this woman
clearly demonstrates the Soviets'
total disregard for human
rights," Congressman Young
told his colleagues in the House
of Representatives, "and is a
stark reminder that many people
in the Soviet Union are being
denied the freedom to worship
the God of their choice."
He urged everyone in his
district and throughout the
United States to continue to
press the issue so that "people
such as Nadezhda Fradkova will
someday realize their lifelong
dreams and be allowed to
emigrate to Israel or to a nation,
such as ours, where the freedom
to worship is respected as a
sacred God-given liberty."

and talent." Len said.
Though his involvement with
Menorah Manor construction has
taken much time, Len's in-
volvement with Federation
continues. "The Federation is the
central body for the community,
and it is the Federation which
operates the resources to provide
services to the community," he
Len is president of the land
company for U.S. Home. When
he is not behind his huge desk in
his office, or at a meeting, he can
be found drifting in his sailboat
in the Gulf of Mexico. "The first
thing I did when we came down
here was look for a place to put
my boat," Len confessed. "Then
we looked for a house close to the
boat. Edie doesn't really like
sailing, but she is a sport, and
comes with me out of courtesy."
Despite his time-consuming
involvement in the community,
Len pursues other hobbies. He
enjoys reading about history and
current affairs, and is a strong
advocate of education.

community and in the Jewish
Fedeartion. They are caring

The TOP Jewish Foundation
has been in operation for a little
over four years. During that
time its net endowment assets,
after grants and charitable
distributions, have grown to
over four million dollars; but
that is only part of the story.
The rest of the story focuses on
what the Endowment Fund is
doing for the community today
by way of special grants and
distributions and what it can do
for the community in the future
with your support.
Over the next few weeks we
will take a look at how the TOP
Endowment Fund program is
beginning to make a difference in
your community. In addition we
will examine the different Field-
of-Interest and Designated
Funds that are already in place
and in which you can invest
through your gift to the
Foundation. You don't need to
be wealthy to be a philan-
thropist, but you do have to care
about making the world, and
especially your Jewish com-
munity, a little bit better.
Annual Campaign and Other
Annual Giving Still Primary
The lifeblood for local needs
and for the needs in the State of
Israel is and will always be the
dollars raised in the annual
United Jewish Appeal Cam-
paign. In some instances annual
giving may be enhanced by
donors taking advantage of the
Foundation's Philanthropic
Fund Program and supporting
the Federation and other
charitable interests through the
medium of a personalized
Philanthropic Fund -in a later
article we will discuss this
concept and how it can aid one's
tax and charitable planning).
However, the fundamental
purpose of an Endowment Fund
is not to aid annual giving.

Holocaust lecture series; or it
can be used as a funding source
for programs or projects serving
a particular field of interest, e.g.,
programming for the elderly

programming for the elderly
could apply for a grant).
Distributions might be made as
seed money for a new and in-
novative program which later
could be worked into an annual
budget or could be endowed
through a designated en-
dowment fund. These kinds of
grants and distributions allow a
Federation and a community to
grow and expand its programs
while not putting an added
burden on annual giving.
An Endowment Fund also
allows a community to look to
the future. Through long range
planning both the capital and
human service needs of
tomorrow can be identified.
When endowment planning is
keyed into long range planning,
a community can exercise a kind
of forced saving and have some
funding in place before a dream
or a need becomes an emergency.
Finally, your Federation's
Endowment Fund operated
under the umbrella of the TOP
Jewish Foundation exists as the
vehicle for you to perpetuate
your Federation and other

When you name TOP to receive
a bequest, life insurance

and a solid financial foundation
for them to build on.

Independence Day Message
From President Chaim Herzog
Very close to our com-
memoration of the establishment
of the State of Israel 37 years
ago, the world will be marking
the 40th anniversary of the
defeat of Nazi Germany. There is
much more than a closeness in
time between the two an-
niversaries; there is an un-
breakable bond. Without the
victory over Hitler, the very
existence of the Jewish people
would have been gravely en-
dangered; the broken survivors
in the camps would not have
been rescued; we would not have
been afforded the great, new
opening given us by the
establishment of the State of
I look back and think of those
tragic days during the war when
we were in the midst of the
struggle against the German
forces. Many of us were already
engaged in rescuing our brethren
from the camps and bringing
them despite all obstacles
to the Jewish Homeland. We
still had before us the struggle
for our existence in our War of
Independence. There were days
and situations in which
everything seemed close to
hopeless, and it was great
historic leadership that gave the
answer and the hope.
Since then there have been
many landmarks in Israel's
history which are all too easily
taken for granted. The Magic
Carpet from Yemen, the airlift of
Iraqi Jewry, the arrival of North
African Jewry, the absorption of
tens of thousands from the
Soviet Union, the Six-Day War,
the reunification of Jerusalem,
the heroism of the Yom Kippur
War, the rescue at Entebbe, and
now the absorption of Ethiopian
Jewry all of these signify the
greatness of Israel, the new life
it has breathed into Jewry, the
unexpected reservoirs of
strength, talent and daring it
has brought forth.
At this hour of celebration our
thoughts go out to our brothers
and sisters in the Soviet Union
who are denied both the right to
live there as Jews and the
freedom to join our Jewish
family in Israel. We pray that
Israels 38th year will witness
the opening of the gates for
them, together with such other
oppressed Jewries as the Syrian.
It is good, it is in fact im-
perative, to remember how much
has been created in Israel during
37 years an open democratic
society, an educational system
which has brought up new
generations of Israelis, an in-
dustrial, scientific and
agriculture infrastructure which
gives us the resilence to in-
troduce the economic reforms
that are the crying need of the
hour. The economy in a country
which has one of the highest per
capita export figures in the
world has an inherent strength
and, given the right policy,
leadership and management, it
must be capable of overcoming
its difficulties.
We face painful adjustments
in another vital area the with-
drawal of our forces from
Lebanon. We are interested in a
sovereign and independent
Lebanon, free of foreign forces
on its soil, capable of acting to
ensure its security and to live in
proper relations with its neigh-
bors. We will continue to work
for this, but we will take all
steps necessary to keep our
northern towns and villages free
from the nightmare of Katyusha
We continue to face many
difficulties: We have many
shortcomings, but as a free,
vibrant society, we make a
continuous effort to overcome
them; No society is without its
weaknesses; but every society
must be judged by the freedom
of its population to deal with the
inadequacies. As we face this
struggle, we are aware that,
despite the hostility against us
in many parts of the world,
notably the Communist and
Islamic lands, we are not alone.
The closest of our allies are the
Jewish communities of the free
world. We invite them to im-
plement this partnership by
strengthening aliyah to Israel.
Israel, with all its growing pains
and difficulties, is the central
Jewish experience, the ex-
pression of Jewish culture as it
can be lived only in majority
A long and adventurous road
stretches before us if we are
adequately to continue the great
saga of our people's life with its
reestablished national
sovereignty at its heart. May the
coming year of Israel's life see us
further on that road to peace and

The Jewish Floridian of Pinellas County Friday. April 19, 1985
Israel's new economic plan in effect
prices of hundreds of goods and
services went up by 10-15 percent
as the Treasury introduced a new
economic package deal approved
by the government, business and
the Histadrut.
The new plan was put into
effect immediately at the in-
sistence of Finance Minister
Yitzhak Modai and the
Employers Association, despite
strong opposition from many
ministers and labor who argued
that consumers should not be
faced with higher prices barely a
week before the start of the
Passover holidays.
But Modai and his aides in-
sisted that the Treasury could no
longer sustain its subsidies of
foodstuffs and other items in face
of a rapidly declining Shekel. The
Employers Association
threatened to pull out of the deal
if there was any delay in im-
plementing the price hikes. They
said they had agreed to the
package with the understanding
that the first round of price in-
creases would become effective
immediately. The government
hiked the price of gasoline and
other fuels by 13 percent.
The package deal calls for price
rises now, a two-month freeze at
the new level, to be followed by a
Extradition effort underway
Netherlands government is
urging Canada to amend an 86-
year-old treaty between the two
countries which has frustrated
efforts to obtain the extradition
of Jaap (Jacob) Luitjens, a
resident of Vancouver, who was
convicted in his native Holland in
1948 of collaboration with the
Nazi occupation forces during
World War II.
Luitjens was sentenced in
absentia to 20 years in prison for
"aiding and abetting" the enemy,
a crime not covered by the
Canada-Netherlands treaty of
1899. The Dutch Ambassador to
Canada, Naboth Van Dijl, said
his government has been trying
for a number of years to negotiate
a new treaty, so far without
Luitjens was found guilty of
helping the Nazis track down
Dutch resistance fighters and
locating secret radio transmitters
and receivers. He is also alleged
to have killed a German army
deserter and a Dutch resistance
member. Luitjens has denied
killing anyone but refused to eo
Studies gauge Jewish
perceptions of
WALTHAM, Mass. Studies
in Washington, D.C. and St.
Louis by a Brandeis University
social policy analyst suggest that
most Jews in the United States
believe they have experienced
some form of anti-Semitism in
their lifetime.
In addition, says Gary Tobin,
associate professor of Jewish
community research and plan-
ning at Brandeis' Center for
, Modern Jewish Studies, "the
younger the person, the more
likely he is to say that he has
experienced anti-Semitism within
the past 12 months."
The research on anti-Semitism
is being sponsored by the Center
for Modern Jewish Studies at
Brandeis, the only advanced
research center devoted ex-
clusively to the study of
American Jewry.
The surveys contained
questions designed to establish
the respondents' perceptions of
and experiences with anti-
to Holland to answer the charges.
Van Dijl said he was jurprised
that Canada would not comply
with a request from one of its
Western democratic allies to do
all it could to return a convicted
war criminal to face justice.

and many of his fellow ministers
to hold the price rises in abeyance

Premier David Levy spoke of

holiday purchases before the new
prices took effect.
The new package deal was
adopted in the course of a
