An art collector bought a
Picasso at imposing cost and
brought the work to the artist for
his evaluation. Picasso looked at
the painting and declared, "It's a
fake." Disappointed but un-
daunted, the collector took a
chance on another Picasso,
journeyed to the artist's home in
the south of France, and received
the same answer, "It's fake." The
collector protested, "But when I
was here last year, I saw you
working on this very painting in
this very studio." "Yes," replied
Picasso, "that is possible. I often
Life, we say, in an art. We refer
often to "the art of living." Each
year on the Yamim Noraim (Days
of Awe), we step back briefly from
the canvas upon which we are lim-
ming our lives and we ask: Is our
art authentic, or are we painting
fakes? Are we living lives of
coherence, integrity, and high
purpose, or, without realizing it
perhaps, are we allowing our
judgments and our behavior to be
unduly influenced by all the com-
jawical, political, and artistic
fakery and flimflam that engulfs
The issue is not style per se. An
artist may work in a style that is
traditional, modern, or avant-
grade (Picasso worked in all three
at various times), and still be
authentic or a faker. Picasso's
compatriot, Salvador Dali, advises
young artists "Begin by drawing
and painting like the old masters;
after that, do as you wish and you
will always be respected."
Authenticity, then, arises from
attachment to, or, at least, a pro-
found awareness of that which is
deep in time, wise, experienced,
proven, and beyond ourselves.
For a Jew, that means attachment
to the God, people, and Torah of
Israel. Attentive and thoughtful
observance of the Yamim Noraim
(take Notice of the words you are
Rabbi Kenneth Bromberg
saying in the synagogue) is the op-
portunity we Jews have each year
to review the composition, colora-
tion, and chiaroscuro of our lives.
The Pinellas County Board of
Rabbis joins me in wishing each of
you and your family a
healthful and happy New Year.
Please God, may it be a year of
surcease for terrorism, war, and
hunger and a year of increase
for peace with justice and plenty
throughout the world.

As we prepare to observe the
High Holy Days, it is a time for us
to look backward and forward, to
assess ourselves individually and
collectively as Jews.
We ask ourselves what we could
have done to be better Jews and
how we could be more involved in
the Jewish community.
The challenges that face us as
Jews living in a non-Jewish world
are unique ones that perhaps our
ancestors never dreamed of living
in tight-knit, closed communities.
Most of us must balance living
in that non-Jewish work and
school world with the need to
preserve our Jewish heritage. We
must not let the demands of the
secular community outweigh our
commitment to our temples and
synagogues, so we can be part of
the Jewish community.
We further try to be involved in
the various Jewish organizations
and service groups, not only for
ourselves and our families, but
also to help serve the Jewish com-
And we ask ourselves" if we
could have done more.
With the High Holy Days up-
coming, we think of justice and we
think of our people in oppressed
lands who will not be free to
observe the new year as we will.
We think of Israel where, thanks
to the commitment of Jews
worldwide, we have a home.
We think of compassion, caring
for the economic difficulties and
ever-present dangers facing our
Israeli brothers and sisters, and
about Jews here in Pinellas and
worldwide who are in need.
We think of accountability.
Have we done our part?
As the year 5745 ends, the
Federation reflects on the number
of volunteers and committed
members who made time in their
busy schedules to be as involved
as they could to help further
enhance the Jewish community
and the lives of all Jews.
We reflect on those who gave
what they could, to help satisfy
the many needs identified by the
numerous local, national and in-
ternational causes and services
coordinated by the Federation.
We are thankful for our benefac-
tors and for those who only could

split-up of the coalition arrangement on tne
basis of Health Minister Mordechai Gur s g
response to Sharon's provocative denuncia-
tion of Peres.
Is Unity Gov't.
Disputes of such magnitude that they rock
the Unity Government are really nothing
new. The latest of these involves seven
Members of the Knesset who illegally pur-
chased from an Arab and then occupied an
apartment in Hebron.
The dispute centers on a West Bank land
purchase policy adopted by the government
of Menachem Begin. According to that
policy, land purchases require official ap-
proval from the Ministry of Defense, which
the seven MK's did not have. On Aug. 20,
they were therefore evicted. This is how
Prime Minister Peres and those who support
him see it.
But Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
Minister Without Portfolio Ariel Sharon
argue that Peres and his Laborites appear to
be misinterpreting the Begin land policy
which they now declare is the law of Israel.
Sharon has frankly called the Peres position
"a lie and hypocrisy."
This sort of salty talk is not uncommon in
Sharon. His testiness is to be expected. But
Shamir, who is also Deputy Premier and
who is scheduled to take over as Prime
Minister when the Laborites and Peres com-
plete two years in office, was not much bet-
ter than Sharon as a Likud advocate.
"Nothing makes you more angry than a
Jewish settlement," he told Peres.
Peres To Be Praised
Let those, said Gur, who do not agree with
the Peres implementation of the Begin
government's land policy, quit the f^era-
ment. Or of Peres, himself, who told Likud s
Shamir that ministers who accuse the
government of lying or hypocrisy cannot at
the same time continue to be members ol
This may serve to cool some of the hot
tempers that take such delight in challeng-
ing the integrity of Unity rule at least in
this instance. The reason is simple. Likud
would not readily quit and risk a general
election. Whatever some polls may indicate
about the growing strength of Kahane s
Kach forces an indication of the nation s
developing conservatism Likud would not
be likely to emerge as the winner, and its
role as a Unity partner would disappear,
leaving the party considerably weakened.

Given such hostility felt on both sides, it is
not surprising that the rancor has become
sharper yet. But, as we see it, the fate of the
j apartment and its occupants in Hebron has
$ little to do with any of this undiplomatic
:| behavior. Far more to the point is what it
At issue are the political distinctions bet-
i ween Labor and Likud specifically, the of-
: ficial attitude toward Arabs as each inter-
! prets it, whether they be Israeli or occupied
|l territory Arabs. For Peres, the need is to
:: adopt and pursue a moderate approach with
an eye toward acccommodation between
I Jews and Arabs. Without this, as Peres sees
| it, there may well be no Israeli future at all.
I For Shamir and Likud, the policy appears
:ji| to run somewhere short of the extremist
:S position of Meir Kahane, who would simply
: boot all Arabs out of the country and the ter-
| ritories, Israeli or otherwise, and the
religious zealots for whom the law govern-
ing land policy is frequently what Orthodox
interpretation proclaims it to be.
In this instance, Prime Minister Peres and :;j:
his minions are to be praised for the position g
they have taken. Israel can have no claim to |
f: being a free and democratic nation if it does :|

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The Cabinet reviewed Sun-
day the deteriorating securi-
ty situation in the ad-
following the murder Satur-
day of an Israeli in
Tulkarem and the serious
wounding of another Israeli
in the town of Jenin in the
north of Samaria. A curfew
imposed after the attacks in
Tulkarem, some 15 miles
west of Nablus, and in
Jenin, some 20 miles north
or Nablus, was lifted for two
hours Sunday afternoon to
allow local residents to pur-
Forty-year-old Andre Aloush of
Netanya was buried Sunday after
he was shot in the back with a .38
caliber pistol shortly after he
entered a jewelry store in the
center of Tulkarem.
Aloush, who had been accom-
panied into Tulkarem by his wife,
brother and sister-in-law, was
shot at very close range. Ho died
on his way to the hospital. His
assasin disappeared into a crowd-
IN JENIN, four hours later, Uri
Ovad of Tiberias was shot three
times in the back with a .22 caliber
pistol. He was in serious condition
with a bullet lodged near his spine.
His assailant escaped.
Initial investigation did not
show any obvious link between the
two attacks. But the Palestine
Liberation Organization claimed
responsibility for both attacks.
The PLO Wafa news agency in
Tunis said that two Palestinian
combat units killed two Israeli
secret service officers.
The Cabinet meeting Sunday
took place amid growing public
presure to step up security
measures in the territories, in-
cluding collective punishment, if
need be. At least a dozen Israelis
have been killed by Arabs in the
West Bank within the past year.
Last month, three residents of
Afula, in the Jezreel Valley, were
killed. The murders at that time
increased pressure on the Cabinet
to take specific measures to step-
up security and to implement the
death penalty for terrorist

ORT Coming Events
Hawkins to Receive JNF
The St. Petersburg Evening
Chapter of Women's American
ORT (Organization for Rehabilita-
tion Through Training) will be
participating in a regionwide ORT
community service project involv-
ing career education.
After completing an orientation
at SPVTI (St. Petersburg Voca-
tional and Technical Institute) on
Oct. 2, teams of two ORT
volunteers will be visiting area
high schools once a month from
October through May promoting
the curriculum offered by SPVTI.
The women will be provided a
place in the high schools where
they will answer student's ques-
tions and provide them with infor-
mation on SPVTI.
This is a very timely project in
light of recently published
statistics indicating the dropout
rate in Pinellas County is up 29
percent. By providing information
to high school students about an
extremely viable educational
alternative, it is hoped that
statistic can be reduced.
For many years, Women's
American ORT has been an ad-
vocate for quality public education
in the United States and for the
inclusion of vocational, technical
and career education in elemen-
tary, middle, and high school
Career education could be the
key to educational reform. By pro-
viding motivation for learning,
career education harnesses the
energies and talents of our youth
and inspires them to pursue voca-
tional and technical education and
develop an appreciation for work.

JERUSALEM (JTA) The

by spokesmen for both wings of

Israelis by a confirmation of

"Best Fellowship Program
The program, 'The Brunches,' is
the main fellowship program for

'Brunches' have good programs
which have good attendance. The
planning starts at least a month
prior to the program. It includes
everything from the publicity,

The award is the result of the
solid foundation of the Mitzvah

presidents Dr. Paul Cohen and
Philip Redisch. Contributing were
the many men of the club who

The Group Home Alternative
Living Project, a non-sectarian
project, intends to offer clients
food service and Kosher meals if
needed, housekeeping, group ac-
tivities, as well as help with
eating, bathing, dressing, groom-
ing and transportation. Nursing
staff would provide "limited
medical supervision" in addition
to regularly scheduled doctor's
visits. Various therapists would be
available based upon specific
needs of clients.
The program will be located in
the landmark Hacienda Hotel -
once the gathering site of movie
stars and songwriters. The Ha-
cienda, at 201 West Main Street,
in New Port Richey, is a 40-room
peach-colored elegant Spanish
stucco facility overlooking Sims
Park and a view of the winding
Cottee River. It is five minutes
from hospital services and down
the street from the library. Many
months of research went into the
site selection to insure a comfor-
table home setting rather than a
hospital-like atmosphere, a
Plans for the immediate future
include the renovation of the
fire/safety systems such as
sprinkler systems and smoke
defectors, the installation of an
elevator and an overall repainting
and refurbishing of the interior
and exterior of the building.
At the present time, if all other
activities remain on schedule, Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service in-
tends to open the doors of this
new level of care to the public as
of Dec. 31. Special screening pro-
cedures, intended to insure that
an individual is referred to that
level of care which is most ap-
propriate for that individual's
needs, will be conducted by the
CARES unit. The CARES unit is
a special unit operated by HRS
Aging and Adult Services, which
has been conducting this pro-
cedure for over two years for
those who have been referred for
nursing home placement.
As always, Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service looks forward to
being able to provide this special
service to the community, but it is
going to need your support.
Special needs will include: single
beds, comfortable sitting chairs,
table lamps, wall decorations and
other household items.

and Jim Soble, esquire, president,
express their pleasure in the fact
that there have already been some

Deal Lets Fatah Leaders Go;
May Return in Three Years
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
An unprecedented deal was
worked out over the
weekend between the
Israeli authorities and
Khalil Abu-Ziad, described
as as a senior Fatah leader
in East Jerusalem and
whom the authorities have
been trying to deport since
The deal provides that Abu-
Ziad would leave the country last
week voluntarily for a period of
three years, promising not to
engage in any anti-Israeli ac-
tivities. If he keeps his part of the
arrangement, the authorities com-
mitted themselves to allow him to
return after three years.
ONCE THE agreement was
signed, the authorities cancelled
their deportation order, issued by
Gen. Amnon Shahak, head of the
Military Command. Abu-Ziad, for
his part, took back his appeal to
the High Court of Justice against
the deportation order. He was
also released from his detention
and allowed to meet with his wife
for 48 hours, before leaving for
The authorities maintain that
Abu-Ziad is involved in terrorist
and subversive activities and that
he maintains contact "with people
active in Fatah, both inside and

Abu-Ziad had served a 10-year
prison sentence for his Fatah ac-
tivities. He was first arrested on
suspicion of Fatah activities in
September, 1979. He was releas-
ed, then rearrested two months
later, charged with heading a ter-
rorist cell, and with receiving and
distributing Fatah funds in the
ABU-ZIAD, who has been
under house arrest since 1982, ap-
pealed the deportation order to
the military review board which
recommended that Shahak recon-
sider his decision to have Abu-
Ziad deported. While the review
board said there was "legal and
justified reason" for the deporta-
tion order, it said there "is
nothing to link him directly with
"Therefore, we recommend that
the Military Commander recon-
sider whether under the cir-
cumstances and considering the
role of the petitioner in Fatah,
deportation is necessary in view of
its extremely drastic and serious
nature." the review board said.
The board's recommendation took
defense officials by surprise in-
asmuch as the Board had until
then been considered a rubber
stamp for the approval of such
decisions by the area commander.
