Rabbi Kenneth Bromberg
By LOYCE GABON
"I feel myself coming most fully
alive as a person and as a rabbi
when I am teaching," says Rabbi
Kenneth Bromberg of Congrega-
tion Beth Shalom, Clearwater,
who currently chairs the Pinellas
County Board of Rabbis.
Rabbi Bromberg's professional
career has included both Jewish
education and the congregational
Born in Brooklyn, New York in
1928, Rabbi Bromberg was raised
in a Reform synagogue whose rab-
bi, A. Alan Steinbach, was an ear-
ly mentor and rabbinic model. It
was Rabbi Steinbach who,
recognizing the boy's deeper in-
terest in things Jewish, urged his
parents to send him to the
Yeshivah of Flatbush, one of the
first American-style Jewish day
schools. Rabbi Bromberg con-
tinued his studies on the high
school level at night at the
Herzliah Hebrew Academy in
During his undergraduate years
at Brooklyn College, Rabbi
Bromberg attended the Seminary
College and Teachers Institute
departments of the Jewish
Theological Seminary. Upon
graduation from college, he
entered the Rabbinical School of
the Seminary where he was or-
dained in 1956. Rabbi Bromberg
also earned a master's degree in
education from the University of
Pittsburgh, and in 1982 was
awarded an honorary Doctor of
Divinity by the Jewish Theological
An important early influence
was the rabbi's maternal grand-
mother, Jennie Turow, a promi-
nent leader in the 1930s and 1940s
of such Jewish women's organiza-
tions as Ivriah and the Women's
Division of the American Jewish
"My grandmother's activities in
those years was my first exposure
to organized Jewish life," Rabbi
Rabbi Bromberg claims that his
intensely Hebraic education at the
Yeshivah of Flatbush and
Herzliah "weaned me away from
Reform to Conservative Judaism"
after a "brief flirtation" with Or-
thodoxy which he found "too
authoritarian for my taste." In his
youth, Rabbi Bromberg also had a
brief flirtation with militant
Zionism as a member of Betar, the
youth wing of what is now the
Herut party in Israel. The rabbi
Rabbi Kenneth Bromberg
recalls one of his Betar acquain-
tances, "a firebrand named Meir
From his early synagogue upbr-
inging and from his warm
memories of Rabbi Steinbach,
Rabbi Bromberg retains an ap-
preciation of Reform Judaism, "a
movement of survivalist religious
orientation with important colors
of its own to add to the American
Still, entering the Rabbinical
School of the Seminary, Rabbi
Bromberg had no strong sense of
personal Jewish ideology. "I was
up for grabs," he says. The
Seminary teacher who "grabbed"
the future rabbi was Mordecai M.
Kaplan, the founder of the
Reconstructionist movement in
American Judaism (Rabbi Kaplan
died in 1983 at age 102). From this
teacher, Rabbi Bromberg ac-
quired two things: first, a fully in-
ternalized and operational view of
Judaism not as a Jewish religion
alone, but, in Kaplan's famous for-
mulation, "the evolving of
religious civilization of the Jewish
people" and, second, a strong
communal sense that sees
synagogues and federations as the
twin axes around which organized
Jewish life revolves.
Upon ordination in 1956, Rabbi
Bromberg entered the Air Force
chaplaincy. He recalls that "it was
a time of raging peace after
Korea and before Vietnam." Rab-
bi Bromberg's first civilian con-
gregation was in Oak Ridge,
Tenn., where his membership was
made up mostly of nuclear scien-
tists and engineers.
In 1954, Rabbi Bromberg mar-
ried Johanna Hirsch of Tampa.
Born in Germany, she is a
graduate of Brandeis University
in Judaic Studies. In 1974, Johan-
na earned a master's degree in
Support Your Koved Fund
By PHYLLIS ABRAMS
A Dec. 13 news report out of
Jerusalem emphasized the rising
rate of poverty-level families in
the state of Israel. The article
stressed that "those who are
defined as poor are not necessari-
ly starving or undernourished."
The poverty line is defined as the
minimal income necessary to sup-
ply the basic needs.
Gulf Coast Jewish Family ser-
vice (GCJFS) sees a similar
growth in the number of families
at or below the poverty line in our
midst. Most recently, a number of
clients have come to the agency,
because of the inability to either
shelter or feed their families.
The elderly, many of whom live
on Social Security alone, have just
enough funds to pay rent and pur-
chase basic foods. When illness
strikes they are unable to pay for
medication or medical fees beyond
With the beginning of the new
year, GCJFS stands ready, as
always, to direct those families to
the proper resources and public
funding. When all areas of fun-
ding are exhausted, GCFJS turns
to the Koved Fund.
The Koved Fund is a program
sponsored by your Jewish Federa-
tion. The money is used to support
needy Jewish families in Pinellas
County. Each person or family ap-
plies to the Koved Fund for
assistance and is screened
Contributions to the Koved
Fund are especially needed at this

tible contribution to The Koved

born during the Air Force years,
and their sons, Efrem and Hillel,
were born in Oak Ridge. Naomi is
now married to MIT physicist

infant daughter, Shlomiya, live in
Cambridge, Mass. The family
hopes in the near future to make
'aliyah' to Israel. Efrem and Hillel

As the children came of school
age, the Brombergs sought a com-
munity with a day school and, in
1962, the family moved to Pitt-
sburgh where Rabbi Bromberg
served as spiritual leader of Beth
El Synagogue. This was during
the turbulent 1960s.
In April, 1963, Rabbi Bromberg,
together with other colleagues
went to Birmingham, Ala. during
the unrest there.
The Pittsburgh years also saw
Rabbi Bromberg drawn into
Jewish education. He was at one
and the same time rabbi of the
congregation and principal of its
afternoon school of 225 children,
"in retrospect a really awesome
load." Two evenings a week the
rabbi taught and developed
materials for the Pittsburgh com-
munity Jewish high school, called
The School of Advanced Jewish
Studies. At the school, Rabbi
Bromberg worked under the
tutelage of its founder and dean,
Dr. Aharon Kessler. At Dr.
Kesslesr's urging, Rabbi
Bromberg earned a master's
degree in education at the Univer-
sity of Pittsburgh.
Venturing out then into Jewish
education, Rabbi Bromberg serv-
ed as principal of the Congrega-
tion Kehillath Israel religious
school in Brookline, Mass. and
then as executive director of the
Jewish Education Council in Kan-
sas City, Mo. in which capacity
he directed the community's
Federation-sponsored Jewish high
school as well as its bureau of
Concluding, however, that he
functioned best in a synagogue
setting, Rabbi Bromberg returned
to the congregational rabbinate in
1975 in Omaha, Neb. and came to
Congregation Beth Shalom in
Clearwater in 1982.
He continues his teaching ways
here. While the rabbi's Friday
evening sermons are more formal-
ly structured, his Sabbath morn-
ing Torah discourses are never "I
talk you listen." They always
culminate in lively dialogue,
discussion, exchange, interaction.
At first, some congregants were
inhibited by open disci'jsion from
the floor at services on a Sabbath
morning, but now almost
everyone is at ease with the for-
mat and the give-and-take is free
and easy," Rabbi Bromberg says.
"I honestly feel I learn as much if
not more from my congregants as
they learn from me."
To accompany the transition at
Beth Shalom to the full participa-
tion of women in the worship ser-
vice, Rabbi Bromberg and his
wife, together with the Beth
Shalom Sisterhood leadership
developed WILL (Women's In-
stitute for Living and Learning)
which Rabbi Bromberg calls "an
affirmative action adult education
program for Jewish women" who
have generally not been afforded
a Jewish education comparable to
men. About 30 women attend
"It is exciting to see women,
younger women and older women,
advance rapidly from aleph-bet to
fluency in reading to the point
now where they are learning trop
and preparing to chant haftarot."
On Shavuot each year, a bat-
Torah ceremony is held with
graduates of the two-year pro-
gram conducting significant por-
tions of the service. Beth
Shalom's WILL program was na-
tionally recognized for excellence
at a recent convention of the
Women's League for Conser-
"Mine has been, you might say,
a 'teaching ministry,' Rabbi
Bromberg observes. Authentic
Jewish learning and teaching,
Rabbi Bromberg believes, is text-
centered: Bible, rabbinic
literature, medieval classics,
modern works of significance.
Rabbi Bromberg believes that
there is no more serious problem
facing American Jewry than
"To overcome that illiteracy
wherever I can has been the ben-
chmark of my work as a rabbi," he
"Pinellas County seems to me to
be a Jewish community perennial-
ly 'in the making.*" Pinellas
history, geography, and
demography militate against
countywide Jewish cohesiveness.
Rabbi Bromberg acknowledges
with admiration the personal ef-
fort Federation President Stan
Newmark has been making to
bind the Federation and the
synagogues more closely
The rabbi feels, however, that
the Federation's efforts might
more effectively be spent
strengthening directly the main
"Judaizing agencies" in the com-
monity the synaoggues in the
first instance, and, also, the
Jewish community centers. That
the Federation provides signifi-
cant support for the Pinellas
County Jewish Day School shows
its basics sensitivity to the issue.
Additional ventures in communal
Jewish education need to be ex-
plored and developed, Rabbi
Rabbi Bromberg and Johanna
hav been to Israel five times
twice leading synagogue
pilgrimages, twice taking Hebrew
University archeology courses,
and once for a convention of the
Rabbinical Assembly. "From the
moment I arrive, a very special
feeling of at-homeness comes over
Asked to relate an especially
meaningful experience in Israel,
Rabbi Bromberg recalled his first
visit to Masada in 1969:
"We arrived before dawn from
the west. The sun was coming up
over Jordan to the east. Suddenly,
looming over me, in silhoutte, was
the familiar outline of the three-
tiered palace of Herod on
Masada's north face. We climbed
to the top along the ancient
Roman siegework. As we reached
the surface of Masada, day was
breaking. It was Tisha' b'Av and I
had my tallit and tefillin with me.
Donning both for my morning
prayers, I felt Jewish history as
I'd never felt it before. In com-
bination, the time of day, the fast-
day itself, my garb and my
prayers, and my knowledge of
what happened in that place, pro-
duced from deep within me a
melding of myself with Jewish
history such as I had never ex-
perienced before or since."
"I have no hobbies as such. I am
not a maker or a collector of
things," Rabbi Bromberg says. "I
dabble in photography and for
relaxation and extra-professional
stimulation, I read science-fiction
and keep up with developments in
archeology and futurism which
take me into the past and into the
future where I have no decisions
to make. I also maintain a very
special staff of personal
psychotherapists named Bach,
Beethoven, Bartok .."
I Memo from the President |
The 1986 Campaign is under-
way new people, new ideas and
a new spirit in our community.
No one who has participated in
serious fundraising has escaped
the deflective thrust of those who
do not wish to "participate." For
example, they may contend that
"charity" is a private matter and
that the solicitor has no right to
a) intrude or b) suggest the range
of the contribution.
At general Campaign Cabinet
meetings we analogize these pro-
blems to Passover's four sons.
Note the way "Chachan" (the
wise son) needs no cajoling and
"Rasha" (the bad boy)
disassociates from Klal Yisroel
and vice versa (God brought me
out of Egypt, me, not you);
"Tarn" (the innocent son) tells the
story of the exodus and its
Our tradition maintains not only
the performance of Tzedakkah"
by the individual, but further com-
mands the community to ac-
complish it. Judaism has always
reflected a strong strain of
pragmatism. If someone truly
wishes to leave our peoplehood,
we do not stand in their way;
"Rasha(s)" do exist and we are
philosophical about our losses.
Our energy is spent with the three
other sons with whom we relate
and who relate to us and each
Some say "we are the Chosen
people"; I say we are the "people
who choose." In one sense, we are
acknowledging that Jews have op-
tions! To remain or to leave!
A central focus of this years'
campaign will be to increase the
number of contributors and
therefore broaden the base of giv-
ing. Currently, there are 2,817 in-
dividuals who support our annual
drive. It is recognized that there is
a potential of 6,000 giving units in
the community. This means, there
are over 3,000 Jews in our service
area who have not contributed.
Some people do not give
because they are new to the com-
munity and have not been asked
to contribute. Many others do not
give because they truly do not
understand the needs of the
Federation and the benefits of-
fered to the community.
Although the number of wealthy
Jews is increasing, the number of
Jews who are at the poverty level,
or below, is also increasing; the
majority of them are elderly and
single women who head the
About one-half of the sum raised
by our Federation goes for local
and domestic needs, the other half
goes to Israel through the United
Jewish Appeal and the United
Israel Appeal, and partly for
assistance by the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee to needy Jewish com-
The Campaign Cabinet of the
Federation has adopted a new and
aggressive goal. We are going to
double the number of contributors
within three years. Our plan is
simple each contributor will be
asked to bring in one new con-
tributor a manageable goal.
If for some reason you have not
been asked to make your gift,
please call the federation office
(446-1033) so that you can be
counted and derive the pleasure of
helping your fellow Jews.

Project Renewal Makes The Difference
Tel Mond is the Project Renewal
twin of the Manatee-Sarasota
Federation, as well as of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County. Under the Project
Renewal program, several
American communities join
together to select a Project
Renewal twin, but each communi-
ty then runs its own campaign.
In Pinellas, Herb Schwartz
rhairs the Project Renewal Cam-
paign for the Federation. Pinellas'
goal is to raise $400,000 for Pro-
ject Renewal Tel Mond. Schwartz
said Pinellas' Jews have seen the
need and already contributed
$902,315 to this year's Project
Renewal Tel Mond campaign
(as of December SO).
The Project Renewal Tel
Mond runs concurrently, but is
separate from the '86 Combined
Jewish Appeal campaign. Dona-

reinforced the impression that the
leadership in Tel Mond was ex-
traordinary. The people were
warm and delightful. Yet, deter-
mined to gain an upward mobility
for themselves and more impor-
tant for their children without
forgetting the values of their past
and its traditions.
Pita is still made in the clay
ovens of the Arab world and even
a few old stone spin wheels are in
use. Certain families still have
private synagogues attached to
their homes. It is an honor and a
status symbol to be able to afford
this. It is a statement made by
these families to pass on the uni-
queness of the religion they
brought with them from another
land be it Morocco, Yemen or
Within the school complex,
guarded by an Auschwitz sur-
vivor, alongside the computer
center that we and Naples,

"We appreciate the jobs the
communal workers are already
doing and the commitment they
make daily in their jobs. We know
they will come through for the
Jewish community again,"
Margolis has served as JCC ex-

Perhaps the most startling
change of the last two years is
reflected in the fact that people
are not only not leaving Tel Mond,
but moving in. Construction to ex-
pand existing homes through low
payment loans by the Israeli
government because of Project
Renewal, are being matched by
private new home construction. It
looks like Sarasota with all the
building blocks. Outsiders have
"discovered" Tel Mond. They like
what they see and are moving in
to take advantage of low cost land
and the small town atmosphere
and Project Renewal.
Two years ago a fence divided
Tel Mond from its nearest
neighbor, a Moshav (a term for an
agricultural cooperative). Today
not only is the fence down, but
this Moshav has pledged almost
$250,000 to the Sports Center
which hopefully will be started
within the next year.
Because of its location, the
quality of its local leadership and
yes because of the support
brought by Project Renewal, Tel
Mond is in the process of being ac-
cepted as a Regional Center. The
hub for activities for the youth as
well as the adult and senior
population. The renovation of an
old movie theater, through our

A Special Report From Israel
Your CJA Contributions At Work
Committee Hard at Work On
'86 Blue and White Ball
Sometimes when we receive the
annual call for pledges for the
Combined Jewish Appeal, it's
easy just to think of it from our
end balancing personal budgets
and trying to donate to every wor-
But the CJA campaigns are also
an expression of solidarity and
brotherhood between Jews across
the United States who join
together for strength though col-
lective numbers, and Jews helped
whether they live locally, na-
tionally or in Israel.
An example of CJA dollars at
work is shown in the following
report from Israel. Itzhak and
Tova David and their family's
future depends on our CJA
The Federation asks that when
you get ready to make out a
pledge, you consider both your
family and the Davids, and the
thousands like them.
SAVING A COMMUNITY
Itzhak and Tova David live in
Moshav Tzafririm, northeast of
Kiryat Gat. The moshav, founded
in 1953, is close to bankruptcy and
has been included in a special
Jewish Agency program for
floundering moshavim, with
$700,000 allocated to save
Itzhak and Tova David were
born in Iraq. They emigrated to
Israel in 1951 and settled on
Tzafririm shortly after it was
established. Oldest son Danny,
twenty-two, left the army six
months ago, but cannot find work.
Vilma can only find part-time
seasonal work in a nearby kibbutz
guest house. Their third son, Ben-
ny, is in the army. The other five
children live at home and attend
For having five children under
the age of 18, the Davids receive
$152 monthly from the National
Insurance Institute. Itzhak
manages the moshav's vineyeards
and has a monthly take-home
salary of $210, while Tova, an of-
fice clerk, earns $125 per month
after taxes. Thus, the David's
monthly income is $487, on which
they support seven children living
"A year ago, we received more
than $600 per month," says It-
zhak. "The one thing we haven't
cut back on is food, though we do
eat less meat. But I'm not having
my children with empty stomachs.
That's the way I spent my
childhood. We've cut back on new
clothes and wear some shabby
things, I'm ashamed to say. Also,
we cannot afford new furniture
for the house.
"These things I don't mind so
much. What worries me is that my
children cannot get jobs. My
dream has always-been a better
life for my children, but at least I
always had work as a kid, however
poor we were."
The Jewish Agency Settle-
ment Department has plans to
implement vocational training for
the unemployed youngsters of
moshav families, though as yet no
funds are available to start these

locally, nationally and overseas,"
said Federation President Stan
Newmark, speaking for the cam-
"We have a real job to do, to
help all Jews supported through
the Federation campaign," he
continued. "There are still many
Jewish poor who cannot pay their
electric bills or their medical bUls.
There are people starving in
European countries supported by
the Joint Distribution Committee
because enough funds have not
been raised to provide them with a
To reach the campaign goal
necessary to meet those needs,
every Jewish family in Pinellas
County must give a gift commen-
surate with their income.
A fair share gift for people earn-
ing $50,000 or more would range
anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000,
depending on family expenses.
For those in higher income
brackets, a much larger contribu-
tion would be appropriate.
Of course, no matter how much
you can afford to give $5,000 or
$5-each dollar counts.
"Only by giving capacity con-
tributions can we help our fellow
Jews," Newmark said.

UAHC, ARZA Endorse Campaign
Rabbi Alex Schindler, UAHC
president, and Rabbi Charles
Kroloff, president of' ARZA
(Association of Reform Zionists in
America) recently announced a re-
quest from the Reform Movement
to the Jewish Agency for $t0
million in the coming year.
At the same time, the rabbis in-
dicated they hope no Reform Jew
will base his or her CJA pledge on
the success or failure of the Reform
The following is the text of a let-
ter being sent to Reform Jews who
are concerned about the Reform
Movement's request. The letter is
from Rabbis Schindler and
The Reform Movement has sub-
mitted a request to the Jewish
Agency for 20 million dollars in
the coming year. Its purpose is to
fund numerous specific programs
designed to (1) provide education
programs in Israel for Diaspora
Jewry, (2) encourage Aliyah and
absorption, (3) advance Israel
Reform institutions, and (4) pro-
vide Zionist education in the
Diaspora. To encourage this
cooperative effort of the major in-
stitutions of Reform Judaism, the
UAHC, HUC-JIR, CCAR, WUPJ,
and ARZA, we have briefed the
leadership of the United Jewish
Appeal, the United Israel Appeal,
and the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions and solicited their support.
We believe in and are commit-
ted to the support of the organized
Jewish community and to the
philanthropic efforts of our local
federations and national UJA. We
urge that all of the members of
our movement, while supporting
our grant request, continue
unstintingly their efforts on
behalf of their local federation
campaigns. Our continued support
of Federation/UJA is of great im-
portance to Israel and to our local
community and national needs.
At the same time, we are
unswervingly committed to pursu-
ing our grant request and are con-
fident that with the efforts of all
of us we shall succeed in achieving

Book Review: The Class
Friday, January 10,1986
By ERICH SEGAL
Best known for Love Story,
Erich Segal, in his new com-
prehensive novel will attract even
more readers. The subject is the
25th reunion of the Harvard Class
of 1958, and how Harvard
America's prestigious and oldest
university is an important in-
fluence in the lives of its students
during and after school years.
The story centers around five
class members, their
social involvements and careers.
As freshmen, the class is not
unified, 25 years later they return
home as adults.
The reader meets Danny Rossi,
an accomplished pianist, Ted
Lambros, a scholar in Harvard's
Greek Department, and Jason
Gilbert, of an assimilated Jewish
family who seeks out his Jewish
roots. The other two are Andrew
Eliot who is carrying on his family
tradition of long standing at Har-
vard and George Keller, a
Hungarian-born immigrant who
adopts to the American fabric of
life following a career which takes
him into the political arena.
The format of the novel is
highlighted by passages from An-
drew Eliot's diary, which help per-
sonalize the story line.
Since 1958 was Segal's own
class at Harvard, and because he
also taught here (as well as Yale
and Princeton), who knows if
some of the novel may be
autobiographical? At any rate, it
is five small volumes under one
large heading The Class. The book
is recommended as compelling,

humor, which helps him remain

He visits daily 15 families in the
community, plus prisoners and pa-

his whole time trying to attract
members from amongst the un-
synagogued Jews, and he is
always in the office whenever
