Passover Message From
The Federation President
The holiday of Passover symbolizes Jewish dedication to
the basic value of freedom of oppression, both physical and
spiritual, for all people.
As we join with our families and friends at the Seder
table to celebrate our ancestors struggle for freedom, we
must remember that spiritual and religious freedom still re-
main unavailable to all Jews.
Last year we celebrated the liberation of Anatoly
Sharansky from his bondage in the Soviet Union. This year
we must remain vigilant to the cause of the thousands of
Soviet Jews still left behind who also seek their freedom.
As we gather with our families to celebrate this holiday,
we strengthen the bonds that hold us together as a people.
Each of us has an important role to play in strengthening
the quality of Jewish life in our community, in Israel and
worldwide. We are all members of the world Jewish family
and part of a tradition that is sensitive and responsive to
human needs. We must continuously do all we can to help
our fellow Jews wherever they may live.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, my wife Shirlee
and I extend to you and your families "Hag Samayach,"
and a prayer that our hopes and dreams are a step closer to
reality this veffi,, ------------
Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County
The family of Susan Schwartz, Director of
Planning and Budgeting for the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach County, gather
Philadelphia in the early 1930*8 to
celebrate Passover at a family Seder.
Memories of Passover like this one are
shared by Jewish community leaders. See

Klarsfeld's impassioned, com-
mitted, daring one-woman
crusade to hunt down Nazi
criminals and bring them to
justice in courts of law in Ger-

enduring respect. We are

remarkable woman address

A Christian, born Beate
Kunzel in 1939 in Berlin, she
was a child during the Nazi
period. She learned about
Nazism and the horrors its
leaders perpetrated against
the Jewish people only after
her arrival in Paris in 1960 and
her subsequent marriage in
1963 to Serge Klarsfeld, a Jew
whose father had been a
member of the French
Resistance and who died in the
gas chambers of Auschwitz.

Miracle Making Is A Passover Tradition
Jeanne Levy, General Campaign Chairman of the
1987 Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County-
United Jewish Appeal Campaign, has announced that
a major Passover appeal has been planned on behalf
of the fund raising drive.
The project will be directed to those in the com-
munity who have not vet made their 1987 commit-
ment. Mrs. Levy stated, "We hope that at this most
important season of the year, members of the com-
munity will respond generously and remember that
'miracle making is a Passover tradition.'
"From Biblical times to the present day ...
miracles have come from Jews helping Jews. Today
more than ever in Israel, in Palm Beach County, and
around the world, where our people are in distress,
miracles are still needed.
"Keep our tradition of miracles alive on this
Passover .. you can make the difference when you
contribute to the 1987 Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County-UJA Campaign."
Carol Greenbaum, Women's Division Campaign
Vice President, said, "Let us show our concern for
our fellow Jews who are less fortunate than ourselves
and help make this a most meaningful Passover."
The office of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County will
be closed April 14 and 15 in observance of Passover.

Gardens In The City
"To take up gardening as a
hobby, you don't have to be
rich," says Mrs. Alice Kor-
nreich of Jerusalem, a retired
opera singer who now devotes
most of her time to her flower
garden at 18 Rav Berlin
"There should be a garden-
ing course in every block and
Shikkun," she says as she
straightens up from bending
over a rosebush. "The old and
the blind who can't read can all
do something. I am a
gardener, a cook, and I am also
a grandmother. To raise
something with one's hands
and cherish it, that is one of
the finest pleasures in Life!"
Mrs. Kornreich is not the on-
ly Jerusalemite to have an in-
terest in gardening. The
Jerusalem Project, funded in
part by JDC, sees gardening as
a way to instill into citizens a
sense of responsibility for the
aesthetics of their
"The people of Baka have
come to realize that if the.-,
want their neighborhood to be
green, it is up to them to do
something about it," says Avi
Armoni, Teddy Kollek s Ad-
visor for Neighborhood Affairs
and a resident of Baka. "When
the Municipality hears we are
serious about improving our
neighborhood, they also come
in and help."
The gardens in Baka are
tended with love. Outside one
especially beautiful courtyard,
ornate pots have been arrang-
ed to produce an arcade of
green peace.
Gardening is also promoted
by the Council for a Beautiful
Israel, in cooperation with the
JDC/Brookdale Institute of
Gerontology. These efforts
have resulted in the establish-
ment of a number of senior
citizens' garden clubs in old-
age homes and community
centers. Local volunteers even
had the opportunity to work on
the garden surrounding the
home of President Chaim
In Romania, 5,000 Jews,
many of them aged and infirm
survivors of the Holocaust,
will attend community
Sedorim funded with the help
of the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC).
Other members of the com-
munity will receive special
Passover parcels of kosher
food and wine.
In Tunisia, some 350 people
in six communities will receive
special assistance to buy mat-
zah, matzah meal, wine, meat,
and oil for the holiday, thanks
to JDC.
These are two ways in which
JDC helps bring Passover into
Jewish homes, no matter how
isolated or poor, around the
"May all who are hungry
come and eat," reads the Hag-
gadah. JDC, acting on behalf
of the American Jewish com-
munity, takes this injunction
very seriously.
"Wherever there are Jews in
need, JDC is at work," say
JDC President Heinz Eppler
and Executive Vice President
Ralph I. Goldman in their
Passover message. "As we
celebrate this joyous festival,
we join in sending greetings to
our fellows Jews around the
world those overseas, whom
we help observe the holiday, as
well as those at home, who
make this help possible with
their continued support of the
United Jewish Appeal."
In many of the 34 countries
in which it operates, JDC helps
provide Passover assistance.
The Jewish communities of
Morocco and Poland receive
shipments of matzah, matzah
flour, and wine for the holiday.
Elsewhere in Eastern
Europe, JDC helps distribute
matzah to clients of the Jewish
community's social assistance
agency in Hungary. In
Czechoslovakia, where kosher
food and Passover wine are
not available, JDC helps pur-
chase the supplies elsewhere
and imports them into the
country for distribution.
The 180 Jews of Egypt
receive supplies of kosher
meat and wine, matza, and
matzah meal with help of JDC.
Passover supplies and food
baskets are provided for needy
Jews in Algeria as well.
In Israel, JDC is faithful to
its tradition of helping those
on the fringes of society and
gives aid to the physically and
socially handicapped, the aged,
and the very young. In old-age
homes, community centers,
and other institutions where
JDC plays a major role in
maintaining a high standard of
service, its presence is quietly
felt at the Seder table.
This mitzvah is made possi-
ble by the American Jewish
community's generous support
of the United Jewish Appeal,
which provides the bulk of the
JDC 1987 budget of $57

Lebanon, Iran Major Drug Sources
Lebanon is the world's
largest manufacturer of
hashish, and Iran the second-
largest producer of opium, ac-
cording to the International
Narcotics Control Strategy
Report of the State Depart-
ment's Bureau of Interna-
tional Narcotics Matters. The
report informs the President
and Congress of foreign
cooperation with United
States efforts to halt drug pro-
duction and trafficking. In ac-
cordance with the Anti-Drug
Abuse Act of 1986, countries
must demonstrate full
cooperation with U.S. drug
eradication programs or risk
losing 50 percent of all non-
humanitarian foreign
assistance from the United
With hashish production top-
ping 600 metric tons in 1986,
Lebanon has become a major
narcotics-producing, transit-
and-refining country, accor-
ding to the study. Most of the
illicit trade is conducted in the
Syrian-controlled Bekaa
Valley. "Syrian military of-
ficials are not making efforts
to curb this production and
trafficking," the study
reports, adding that "there
are indications that many
Syrian officials and military of-
ficers profit from the narcotics
trade. Middle East observers
asserted that Rifaat Assad,
brother of Syrian President
Hafez Assad, has been a
kingpin in the Lebanese drug
President Reagan has cer-
tified that Lebanon should
receive its full $975,000 aid in
1987, calling the assistance a
matter of "national interest."
A State Department official
added that since the drug-
producing area is under Syrian
control, the central Lebanese
government cannot be held
Opium production increased
last year in the Moslem
southwest Asian countries of
Iran, Pakistan and
Afghanistan, in spite of the
fact that illicit drug use is a
grave offense under Islamic
law. The report noted that the
cause of the increase was
greater local demand for
opiates such as heroin, not
American consumption.
Pakistan is still the domi-
nant refiner of opium into
heroin intended for Western
addicts, according to the State
Department. Last year, opium
production in Pakistan more
than tripled over 1984 levels, a
setback to government-
sponsored eradication pro-
grams. The report called this
"a direct result of the govern-
ment of Pakistan's failure to
respond swiftly when faced
with strong opposition by
growers" and advocated
tougher actions by Pakistan's
civilian government. Despite
the country's failure to control
opium growers, it will receive
its full $638 million in aid this
Drug control efforts in
Pakistan have fueled produc-
tion in neighboring
Afghanistan, a major producer
of opium and hashish. The
report condemns the Soviet-
backed regime in Afghanistan
saying "there is no indication"
that the government has the
"politial will" to address the
Morocco will also receive its
full $106 million in 1987 even
though it supplies a significant
amount of hashish to Europe
and provides 5 percent of the
U.S. demand.
The report also found that
Egypt has become an impor-
tant drug consumer despite
government efforts to stamp
out the problem. It reported
that Turkey, a significant
center of drug trafficking, has
cooperated fully with U.S. pro-
grams to stamp out narotic
manufature and transport.
Near East Report
Assad's Vow
Syrian President Hafez
Assad "reaffirmed his commit-
ment to regaining the Golan
Heights from Israel, stressing
that Syria has 'a date' for
liberating the Heights and tell-
ing the 'heroes of the
resistance in the Golan' that
Syria will not forfeit an inch of
this territory" (Damascus
Radio, March 8). Some Israeli
analysts have said that Assad
may consider 1987 the 800th
anniversary of Saladin's
defeat of the Crusaders an
historic year in his struggle
with Israel.
Meanwhile, hundreds of
Druze students on the Golan
participated in violent pro-
Syrian demonstrations (Israel

8). Nine policemen were in-
jured and five residents

Russians Deny Reports
Optimism Dampened Over Soviet Jewry Situation
Reports from Moscow Thurs-
day (April 2) dampened the op-
timism which arose here
earlier in the week that large
numbers of Soviet Jews will
soon be allowed to leave for
Israel and that the Soviet
Union is moving toward a
thaw in its relations with the
Jewish State.
A Soviet Foreign Ministry
spokesman was quoted as say-
ing there were no ar-
rangements for a large
number of exit permits to be
granted and that no invitation
has been sent to Israeli
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres to visit Moscow.
According to reports from
Moscow Soviet Foreign
Ministry spokesman Gennadi
Gerasimov said, "We cannot
guarantee an exact number of
applications that can be
presented and receive
favorable outcomes," a
reference to reports that
11,000-12,000 Soviet Jews
would be permitted to leave in
the next9-12 months. "There
will be no quotas," he said.
Peres told Israel Radio that
he hadn't heard of any invita-
tion. "There may be such in-
tentions but so far I've receiv-
ed no invitation," he said.
Soviet officials were also
reported to have denied ar-
rangements were being made
for a mutual exchange of con-
sular delegations with Israel.
Media reports said a Soviet
consular delegation would visit
Israel shortly but that the
Soviets have not agreed to a
return visit by an Israeli
delegation. Diplomatic
quarters in Jerusalem stressed
that the Soviets were made
aware of Israel's insistence on
mutuality and reciprocity
when Israeli and Soviet
representatives met briefly at
Helsinki last August.
But Soviet officials told
Israel Radio this week that
reciprocity did not apply to
consular delegations because
"the Soviet Union has far
more nationals and property in
Israel than there are Israelis
or Israeli property in the
Soviet Union."
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
said that there were some en-
couraging signs of a thaw with
Moscow. "But we shouldn't
exaggerate. I really hope that
we shall finally achieve a
breakthrough and see many
Jews leaving Russia, and
especially coming to Israel,"
Florida Region Young
Leadership Retreat Offers
Variety Of Workshops
A "stimulating and varied"
series of workshops will be of-
fered to participants in the
Florida Region Young Leader-
ship Retreat to be held May 1-3
at the Hyatt Palm Beaches,
West Palm Beach.
Judge Robert Gross and
Sandi Heilbron, Co-Chairmen
of the Young Leadership

ment noted that "in addition
to our outstanding scholars-in-
residence, Howard Stone and
Rabbi Daniel Allen, there are a
number of excellent and
thought provoking workshops
which will be held throughout
the week-end."
Israel and It's Independence
is the main theme of the
retreat. "We encourage our
young adults to help celebrate
the 40th birthday of the State
of Israel with other Young
Leadership from the State of
Florida," stated Ms. Heilbron.
Judge Gross added that
there would be close to two
dozen workshops offered dur-
ing the week-end. Program
highlights include sessions on
Israel s past, present and
future; workshops on political

Despite lack of verification
of reports that a large-scale
departure of Soviet Jews is im-
minent, the Absorption
Ministry and Jewish Agency
have begun to prepare for
their arrival. The Transport
Ministry is marshalling
Israel's entire fleet of
passenger aircraft to bring
large numbers of Soviet Jews
from Rumania.
Reports earlier in the week
said the Soviets agreed that all
Russian Jews holding Israeli
visas would be allowed to fly
directly to Israel via Rumania.

Century Village Federation-UJA
Campaign Volunteers Honored
Two hundred of the approximately 300
volunteers who work on behalf of the Cen-
tury Village 1987 Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign gathered at Congregation An-
shei Sholom Sunday, March 29, for the an-
nual awards breakfast. Through their
dedicated efforts, the projected final total
of the Campaign will be approximately 10
percent over last year.
The Century Village Campaign is unique
in that the Campaign workers cover 7,500
units and personally visit the residents to
ask them for their contribution. More than
60 percent of our residents made gifts last
year and we expect this figure to increase
to over 70 percent this year.
Our area coordinators and their teams
worked tirelessly as they are dedicated to
the Jewish tradition of tsedakah support
of the community's organized effort to help
Jews in need all over the world. The
camaraderie exhibited at the awards
breakfast by 200 active retirees for
Judaism and Israel is indicative of the
pride and national determination of our
Israeli brethren. We shall never let them
down. We support Israel and the entire
Jewish community.
We have finished our Campaign but
we are not done! Many Century Village
residents know about Project Renewal and
our sister city in Israel, Hod Hasharon. We
intend to show our concern where it counts
raising an additional fund to help the
Jewish Federation's pledge to Hod
With great pride and admiration for
their determination, we list for publication
the names of the area coordinators and the
sections of Century Village for which they
are responsible.

Random Thoughts
Winter is over such as it,
was the traffic has thinned
out, the restaurants are easier
to get into, and most prices are
on the way down. This means
that spring is here, my
gardenia bush is blossoming
like crazy, and I have begun to
save "ploosters" of chicken fat
in anticipation of Passover.
To me this is a very special
time of year. I clean like I have
never cleaned before, and I
started accumulating recipes
appropriate for the coming
holiday. The month of March
never arrives but that I
remember the activity that
took place in my home when I
was a child. Maybe you also
have similar recollections.
For openers, I must tell you
that we were a traditional
family. I never heard the word
Passover used. To us, it was
always Pesach. We pretty
much stuck to the ways of our
parents and grandparents.
They called it Pesach, and
Pesach it always was.
It all began with spring
cleaning. My mother was the
drill sergeant who made me
and my sister her buck
privates. We cleaned, scrubb-
ed, and polished. We got down

Aguda Begins
Halacha Hotline
Puzzled about a Jewish legal
question and have nowhere to
turn? Call (718) 436-1889 on
Mondays, 3-5 p.m., Tuesdays,
7-9 p.m., and Thursdays, 4-6
p.m. and 7-9 p.m., and speak
with a decisor of halacha
(Jewish law).
The halacha hotline has been
established by the five-month-
old National Conference of
Agudath Israel Branch Rab-
bonim, the rabbinic arm of
Agudath Israel of America.
Rabbi Meyer Scheinberg of
New York organized the
on our hands and knees to
scrub the linoleum after which
it was covered with yester-
day's newspapers to protect
the shine. Each room got the
full treatment, but the kitchen
was the really big time job.
Every closet had to be emp-
tied, the dishes packed away,
and the walls washed down.
Chometz was destroyed and
only ritually approved foods
were permitted.
But the smell of ammonia
was strong enough to clear
your sinuses with just one
whiff. The stove and oven
were immaculately clean and a
special slotted board covered
the sink. The pots, pans and
dishes used only for Pesach
were brought from their
hiding place, washed and
dried, and then arranged in
the newly lined cupboard.
At this point we were ready
to hit Kingsbridge Road and
do the marketing. We went
from store to store, shlepping
packages and boxes. A new A
and P market had opened
nearby but my mother only
shopped in small, privately
owned stores where she knew
the owners and received per-
sonal attention. The local
storekeepers loved my Mother
since she bought enough food
to feed the Polish army.
Her order always began with
twelve dozen eggs. This may
seem like a huge amount, but
when you consider that almost
every Pesach dish has eggs in
it, it's not as unreal as it
sounds. Before the holiday was
over, more eggs were always
needed. My Mother was a
dairyman's dream come true.
The shopping safari seemed
to go on forever. Mountains of
matzos, cake meal, potato
starch, nya fat, and assorted
jams and jellies were included.
Mother's specialty was a 14
egg nut sponge cake that was
incredibly delicious. You could
never eat just one piece.
Seconds were always expected
and the more you ate, the hap-
pier she was.
Our trip to the chicken man
was high adventure. Many
chickens, capons and pullets
were draped on the gray zinc
counter. Mother punched,
knipped, and blew on the
feathers until she made her
choice. They were then clean-
ed and plucked by the chicken
lady (always dressed is a big
white apron covered by a torn
man's gray sweater.) I loved
watching her do her thing
while singing snatches of Yid-
disheh leidlach.
Next came the fish market. I
was not too thrilled with the
strange smells and the glassy
eyed fish lying limply on beds
of shaved ice. Choosing white
fish, buffle and carp became
very important since they
were the basis for Mother's
own gefilte fish. Her selec-
tions were scaled, cleaned, and
boned so that Mother could
grind them at home.
And the meat market. This
spot fascinated me because it
was the meeting place for all
the housewives in the
neighborhood. The butcher
wore an ankle length apron
and a straw hat. His flanken,
veal chops and lamb shoulder
were cut in large quantities to
meet the demand. Price was
scarcely discussed. He charged
and they paid.
I could go on and on. I am
sure you have your own
Passover memories, sr*y" KB--
ter and some sweet. You may
think your mother's gefilte
fish was better than mine, and
you are entitled. Unfortunate-
ly, my Mother is no longer
here to prove the point. It has
been many years since she left
us, but when spring arrives
and Pesach comes, I miss her
more than anyone will ever

Preparing Kitchen
For Passover
Issued by the Law Committee,
Rabbinical Assembly of America
Passover, Festival of Freedom, has a unique
place in the Jewish home because of the seder and
because of the changed atmosphere in the home
during the Passover week.
This Passover home atmosphere is created each
year by the traditional practice of thoroughly
cleansing the home in all its parts and by the
removal of all chometz or leaven, in preparation for
the welcome of Pesach. Also through the
meticulous avoidance of the use of chometz or
leaven throughout the Passover days, both at home
and when away.
The term chometz or leaven is applied not only to
foods, the use of which is to be avoided during
Pesach, but also to the dishes and utensils in which
foods are prepared or served during the year, and
which dishes or utensils may not be used during
Pesach except as herein indicated.
Foods During Passover
FORBIDDEN FOR USE: The following foods are
forbidden for use during Passover Leavened
breads, cakes, biscuits and crackers, cereals, coffee
substances derived from cereals, wheat, barley,
oats, rice, dry peas and dry beans, and all liquids
which contain ingredients or flavors made from
grain alcohol.
PERMITTED FOODS: Requiring no Kosher
L'Pe8ach label. The following foods are permitted
in unopened packages or containers. They require
no Kosher L 'Pesach label. Natural coffee, sugar,
tea, salt, pepper, vegetables (except peas and dry
beans) and fruits. Permitted vegetables can be
fresh or frozen.
If Certified for Passover use by rabbinical
authority: matzos, matzo flour. Passover noodles,
candies, cakes, beverages, canned and processed
foods, milk, butter, jams, cheese, jellies, relishes,
dried fruits, salad oils, vegetables, gelatin, shorten-
ings, vinegar, wines and liquors are permitted if
they are certified by competent rabbinical authori-
ty as fit for Passover use. Labels and tags marked
Kosher L' Pesach are of no value unless they bear
rabbinical signature.
Dishes and Utensils
Only dishes and utensils specially reserved for
Passover should be used with the following excep-
tions: (A) The silverware, knives, forks and spoons
made wholly of metal, if used during the year, may
be used on Passover if thoroughly scoured and im-
mersed in boiling water. All table glassware is per-
mitted after thorough scouring. Fine translucent
chinaware, if not used for a year, is permitted.
(B) Metal pots and pans used for cooking purposes
only (but not for baking), if made wholly of metal,
though used during the year, may be used on
Passover if first thoroughly scoured and immersed
in boiling water. (C) Utensils used for baking dur-
ing the year cannot be used during Passover.
Earthenware, enamelware and porcelain unten-
sils used during the year may not be used on
The stove is prepared for Passover by thorough
scrubbing and cleansing of all parts and turning on
full flame in the bake oven and all the grates.
A dishwashing machine may be used for
Passover after thorough scouring with boiling
water and the use of a new tray.
Editor's Note: According to Orthodox Pro-
cedure, the following preparation should be added:
All pots, pans and utensils being kashered
should not be used for a 24-hour waiting period
before being immersed in boiling water.
Table glasswear may be used after it has been
soaked in water for three days. The water should
be changed every 24 hours.
Non-Passover china may be used only "in cases
of dire emergency." But first, a competent rab-
binical authority should be contacted.
According to some authorities, an oven can be
used after it is thoroughly cleansed, undergoes a
24-hour period of waiting, and is then turned on to
its highest heat for one hour.
According to some authorities, a dishwasher
may be used for Passover. After undergoing a
24-hour waiting period, the machine should run
through three cycles on the highest heat.
String beans as well as dried beans should not
be consumed on Passover.
Passover Memories
Erwin H. Blonder, President
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
I remember Passover at my grandfather's house. I was about six
years old. We would search and search for the Afikomen and each
year we would find it in the speaker of the Victrola. We finally got
wise to where he hid it and after that, we pretended that we didn't
know where it was and would continue our searching anyway.
It was a joyous time, a family function represented by the patriach
of the family conducting the Seder in his white silk robe with all his
children and grandchildren around him. It was a great time of
Mollie Fitterman, President
Women's Division, Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
My memories of Passover go back in time to when my parents kept
a Kosher home. The house would look scrubbed from top to bottom.
There were dozen of eggs and matzohs it looked like we would
never have to buy any more. It was such a treat when mother would
make matzoh brei as we never had it at any other time. We couldn't
have butter or milk because it wasn't approved for Passover and it
was such a treat not to have these foods.
I remember with fondness these things. It was the lovliest holiday. I
used to love it as a child the feeling of the holiday and the general
demeanor of everyone in the house.
Zelda Pincourt Mason, President
Jewish Community Center
As I look back over the years, I have very fond memories of
Passover which was always spent with my family up until to two
years ago when I was dating my husband Allen. He had to be in the
New York area for the first Seder. I accompanied him on his trip
which led to one of the most enjoyable, different Passovers I've ever
Allen has family in Kingston, New York so we drove from the city to
Kingston where we had the first Seder with many of his relatives up
there. It was a delightful experience, highly traditional. After the
Seder we drove back to New York City where we boarded a plane the
next morning to spend the second Seder with Allen's youngest sister
in Sedona, Ariz.
We arrived just in time to eat. Neighbors with their children drop-
ped in throughout the entire evening. It was very informal and not as
traditional as the night before, but very entertaining and delightful.
Reflecting back, I call this my "jet set" Passover and will always
have happy and fond memories of this unique ways of being introduc-
ed to my future family.
Bennett Berman, President
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric Center
I remember Passover Seders when I was a little boy. We would go
to my grandparents' home on the West Side, Hell's Kitchen, New
York. My mother was one of nine children and all her sisters and
brothes and their children were all at the table. My grandfather tried
to keep all the children quiet but it was very difficult. I remember it
well even though it was over 65 years ago. When my grandfather died,
my mother's oldest sister had the Seder at her home and her husband
had the same problem trying to keep the kids quiet.
Those Seders were a wonderful experience. Now our family is
dispersed throughout the country and we'll be attending a Seder this
year at the Palm Beach Country Club and also at a family Seder at a
friend's home.
Sylvia Berman, President
Women's Auxiliary
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric Center
When I was a youngster I remember that the whole family, all 24 of
us, were together at the same table for the Seder. My father, who was
born in Hungary, conducted the Seder. We did all the preparation
ourselves, including making our own gefilte fish.
Another special Passover memory for me was in the late 1940's and
early 1950's when I was President of the Ladies Auxiliary of B'nai
B'rith for five towns on the South Shore. We would organize Seders
for the Hillels at Adelphi and Hofstra colleges on Long Island. We
would cook and bring food for hundreds of people including many gen-
tile students who were invited. It was a novelty for them and they
were very impressed.
David Schwartz, President
Jewish Family and Children's Service
We always had Passover at my aunt and uncle's house. My uncle
presided and my aunt sat at the other side of the table near the kit-
chen. We looked forward to the homemade gefilte fish and matzoh
balls, which were great. Each year we would comment how the mat-
zoh balls would get larger and larger.
Another time I remember when my cousin, who was 10 years older
than I, led the Seder. He brought a lot of his friends from college. My
younger brother sat across from me and we would both make a lot of
jokes. Generally we would finish around midnight because a few of us
would sit around the table and sing songs. If the Seder occurred on a
Saturday night, it would even be later. Passover is still my favorite
holiday. I look forward to the tradition, the order of it, and the close
family feeling.

End Of The Seder
It's Like A Surprise Symphony
The end of the Seder is
rather like the Surprise Sym-
phony. Following the sump-
tuous meal, many (especially
the children) drowse through
the second part of the Seder
when all are suddenly wakened
by the rousing, almost roister-
ing, songs which finish off the
evening with great eclat.
These songs were apparent-
ly introduced for this very pur-
pose, or perhaps to add an in-
formal element to this careful-
ly arranged and impressive
family ceremony. Some of
them were originally sung only
in the Ashkenazic rite, but of
late they have been adopted by
many Sephardic Jews as well.
They are deservedly among
the most widely known and
beloved of the entire Jewish
festival repertoire.
The first two songs are long
acrostic poems from the 7th
Century: lines begin with suc-
cessive letters of the Hebrew
alphabet. The first night's
song recounts a series of
miracles said to have occurred,
like Passover, at the dead of
night. The second night's
acrostic enumerates events
said to have occurred on
Passover and has the refrain
"This was the Paschal
sacrifice." They were written
respectively by Yannai and
Eleazar Kalir, both 7th Cen-
tury Hebrew liturgists.
The third poem, Ki Lo Naeli
- "For It Befits Him" is of
quite a different ilk. Also an
acrostic, it reviews the various

serted in the Passover seder

This is a child of the Shoah

vive to ask.
Therefore, we ask for that
child Why?
We are like the simple child.

We can only follow the
footsteps of Rabbi Elazar ben

have lost our firstborn, we

tion with silence.

In silence, let us pass the cup
of Elijah, the cup of the final
redemption yet-to-be. We
remember our people's
return to the land of Israel,
the beginning of that
redemption. Let us each fill
Elijah's cup with some
of our wine, expressing the
hope that through our
efforts, we will help bring
closer that redfmption.

attributes of God and has a
quaint refrain, "Thine Also
Thine," taken from different
verses in the Book of Psalms.
The theme of this song, as of
the entire Haggadah, is God's
greatness, mercy and his love
for the Jewish people shown in
His leading them out of Egypt.
Though Moses is a central
figure in the Biblical account
of Passover and the Exodus,
he is completely absent from
the main body of the Hag-
gadah and from these con-
cluding songs.
The most rousing of all the
songs is Adir Hu "Mighty is
He," which is sung to a
rollicking tune. This 15th Cen- the earliest printed song
tury acrostic implores God to known in Old Yiddish,
rebuild His temple speedily. It "Who Knows One?" is a folk

from the 1930's. This Old Yid- doctrinal but relates to objects
and matters significant in
Jewish life. The form is very
popular the world over. The
English folksong, "Green

most familiar. It begins with

At the seder, we drink four cups of
wine for the first four of the following
five expressions of freedom declared to
the Jewish People when we were slaves
in Egypt.
"1 will bring you out from under the
burdens of Egypt and 1 will deliver
you out of their bondage and I will
redeem you with an outstretched arm
and with great judgments; and 1 will
take you to me for a people ... and I
will bring you in to the Land which 1
swore to give to Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob." (Exodus 6 6 8)

This matzah, which we set aside as a
symbol of hope for the Jews of the Soviet
Union, reminds us of the indestructible
links that exist between us.
As we observe this festival of freedom,
we recall that Soviet Jews are not free to
leave without harassment; to learn of
their past: to pass on their religious
traditions; to learn the language of their
fathers; to train teachers and rabbis of
future generations.
We remember the scores who sought to
live as Jews and struggled to leave for
Israelthe land of our fathersbut
now languish in Soviet labor camps.
Their struggle against their oppressors
goes on They will not be forgotten.
We will stand with them in their struggle
until the light of freedom and
redemption shines forth

Sensitivity To Judaism Being
Manifested In Public Schools
With the growth of the
Jewish community, a heighten-
ed sensitivy towards Jewish
children and their special
needs is being manifested in
the Palm Beach County
Schools. This has come about,
in part, as a result of increased
cooperation and understan-
ding between the School Board
and the Departments of
Jewish Education and Com-
munity Relations of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
Over the last few years the
Marilyn and Arnold
Lampert of North Palm
Beach, Fla., formerly of Penn

nounce the engagement of
their son Michael Allen
Lampert to Angela Pauline
Gallicchio, daughter of Susan

Jewish Education Department
has held workshops to further
the teachers' and principals'
awareness of the Holocaust. In
the last year many teachers
and principals requested and
were provided with materials
in order to give their students
a better understanding and
respect of Jewish holidays and
The Community Relations
Department, among other
things, has worked closely
with the School Board to in-
sure that the school's yearly
calendar does not conflict with
the Jewish holidays.
This year a more structured
approach to the orientation of
public school educators is be-
ing introduced. A workshop
"Understanding Our Jewish
Students Through Their
Culture" will attempt to pro-
vide the educators with a basic
introduction to Judaism which
will not only enhance their sen-,
sitivity but will give them in-
formation they require in
order to teach about Judaism
in the context of ethnic/culture
studies and/or Middle East
The workshop sponsored by
the School Board will be held
on a system-wide work day
Friday, April 10, 1:30 p.m., at
the South Technical Education
Center. According to Dr.
Joseph Orr, Associate
Superintendent for Instruc-
tion, the response to the
workshop has been very good.
"We already have 65 people
signed up and expect that bet-
ween 80-90 will be in
He strongly feels that these
workshops and others that will
be planned in the future will
help foster an understanding
which will lead to a respect for
human rights of all groups.
"The time is right," he said.
Dr. Orr noted that the
workshop will lead with Jewish
holidays, the Jewish life cycle,
and a bird's eye view of Jewish

Sephardi Haggadah Best
Example: The Sarajevo Edition
The Jews of medieval
Europe had their best sellers
too. In those days, a book sold
fewer copies but remained on
the list for a few centuries.
The Jewish best seller of 13th
and 14th Century Spain was
the illuminated Haggadah. Not
every Sephardi could afford to
have an illustrated book for his
Seder table on Passover, but
the number must have exceed-
ed the thirty or so surviving
Haggadot. Still, considering
the persecutions and forced
conversions from the late 14th
Century until the final expul-
sion in 1492, and the wander-
ing, resettlement and hard-
ships afterwards, thirty does
not seem so few.
Before the expulsion,
Sephardim were well in-
tegrated into the cultural life
of the Moslem and Christian
societies around them; this is
reflected in Hebrew literature,
architecture and the visual
arts. Much energy was
devoted to the art of the book,
its hand-written text, its
decoration and its leather bin-
ding. None of the Sephardi
scribes or craftsmen left his
name in the manuscript in the
form of a colophon, the
signature at the end
characteristic of medieval
books, which can be found in
some of the Hebrew Bibles
from Spain. That the artists of
Sephardi Haggadot were
Jewish is obvious from the
many illustrations which show
an intimate knowledge of
Jewish customs associated
with the Passover festival.
THE BEST known Sephardi
Haggadah today, the Sarajevo
Haggadah, was originally writ-

workers' unity and evermore
shall be so, which is op-
timistic to say the least.
Paraphrases of Ehad Mi
Yodea "Who Knows One?"
in Ladino and in Yiddish are
also sung at the Seder.
The last song in the Hag-
gadah Had Gadya, written
in imitation Aramaic from the
15th Century, is the most
lovable. In a breathless climax
to the Haggadah, it relates the
events following the purchase
of a kid "bought by my father
for two coins," and ends with
the Lord showing that he over-
comes the Angel of Death.
An unorthodox Hebrew ver-
sion of this ends with the pro-
mise that these events will be
terminated with the abolition
of evil as a prelude to universal
peace. I remember singing a
song in Yiddish in a similar
vein with my father, a song in
which the Lord sends a pea-
sant to pick apples in a forest,
but the peasant refuses to per-
form this chore, and the subse-
quent messengers, identical
with the actors in the Had
Gadya, also refuse to do their
duty, until the Lord himself
goes to the forest. Then all ac-
auire a fear of the Lord, do
tieir own jobs, and even the
apples begin to drop of their
own volition.
It is also a celebration of love
interpreted allegorically as the
love of God for the People of
Israel, which is the central
theme of the Haggadah.
ten in Catalonia in the 14th
Century. It has survived
because its owner, whoever he
was, was wise enough to leave
Spain with it. The Ottoman
Turks welcomed Jews to settle
all over their empire; some
came to Sarajevo in
Yugoslavia by way of Salonica
in the mid-16th Century. The
Haggadah may have been in
the same family for centuries.
In 1894, a Sephardi child, in
order to raise money for the
family after his father died,
brought the book to school to
sell. It was purchased for the
newly-established Bosnian
National Museum for the
reported sum of 100 florins.
Four years later, a facsimile of
the Sarajevo Haggadah was
published in Vienna; from that
time on, several Haggadot
have been reproduced. They
have become gift books in our
times in all price ranges, from
the magnificent Golden Hag-
gadah, a limited edition of an
early 14th Century manuscript
in the British Library, shining
with gold leaf, to the more-
popularly priced Sarajevo
Haggadah, republished in col-

Heschel Recalled As 'Prophet' By Coretta Scott King
Rabbi Abraham Joshua
Heschel, the late Jewish
philosopher and civil rights ac-
tivist, was recalled as a
"prophet" by Coretta Scott
King here last month.
King, president of the Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. Federal
Holiday Commission, spoke at
a meeting of the commission of
the "common ground of faith"
between her late husband and
Heschel, who was a professor
at the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America.
She said it was good from
time-to-time to be reminded
that "people like Martin and
Rabbi Heschel don't come
around very often." She said
the two men were friends and
co-workers in the civil rights

to follow his way. The whole
future of America will depend
on the impact and influence of
Dr. King/'
The commission heard
reports on the observance of
the King holiday last January,
including the activities of the
American Jewish community,
Israel and at the Israel Em-
bassy here where Coretta
Scott King was the guest of
ten days before he was slain by
an assassin in Memphis, Tenn.,
and his widow recalled
Heschel's introduction of her
husband. "Martin Luther King
Jr. is a voice, a vision and a
way," Heschel said. "I call
upon every Jew to hearken to
his voice, to share his wisdom.

So if you must have open heart
surgery, it should be of great comfort
to know that, led by Dr. James Jude,
the surgeons at The North Ridge
Heart Institute perform more open
heart procedures than any other hos-

- In fact, over 4,000 people have
come to us for open heart surgery in
the last 10 years. For the experience
of our physicians. And the excellence
of our care.
Because along with our physi-
cians, Cardiovascular Clinical Nurse
Specialists give individual attention
and support to you and your family
throughout your hospital stay.
And after surgery, a comprehen-
sive rehabilitation program helps you
return to your normal life as quickly
as possible.
But we'd rather help you avoid
open heart surgery entirely. So we
offer one of the most advanced diag-
nostic testing and alternative treat-

Klarsfeld To Speak At Community Holocaust Observance

chancellor of West Germany.
With this public slap, and at
the price of her own arrest and
prison sentence, Beate
Klarsfeld thus focused world
attention on the Nazi leader's
past and his involvement in
Nazi crimes. This attack on
Kiesinger was only one of a
series of dramatic coups that
has made Beate Klarsfeld a
world-renowned figure, and a
leader in the drive to unmask
war criminals now serving
government and industry in
Germany, France and around
the world.
She and her husband, an in-
ternational lawyer, discovered
in La Paz the former SS Cap-
tain Klaus Barbie, "the But-
cher of Lyon," who fled to
South America where he was
living a life of ease and
Upon revealing his true iden-
tity, she chained herself to a
tree on the main street of La
Paz, flanked by posters detail-
ing his crimes. Due to the
Klarsfelds intervention, Bar-
bie was finally extradited to
France where he is expected to
stand trial in May.
Vowing that she will not rest
until she has brought to justice
the murderers of millions of
Jews, Mrs. Klarsfeld with her
husband has compiled a list of
several hundred suspected
Nazis who are still at large.
They have also published the
famous "Memorial to the Jews
Deported from France" and
various important publications
documenting the Holocaust.
She was nominated for the
1977 Nobel peace prize by a
committee of more than 100
Israeli notables.
At the community obser-
vance, a candlelighting
ceremony will be held to
memorialize those who perish-
ed in the Holocaust. It will be
led by Ed Lefkowitz, Presi-
dent of the Holocaust Sur-
vivors of the Palm Beaches.
Churches and civic organiza-
tions are also taking an active
role by educating their
members about the Holocaust
and encouraging them to at-
tend the communitywide

jevo in Apirl of 1941, as SS of-
ficer was sent to the museum
to take the Haggadah as a
prize. While the curator kept
the officer occupied, his
secretary spirited the Hag-
gadah away, and handed it
over to a villager who gave it
to his priest in Foca, on Mt. Ig-
man, where it remained until
after the war.

counterparts, Sephardi Hag-

Recently, a cocktail reception was held at the Hamptons,
Palm Beach, on behalf of State of Israel Bonds. Lt. Col.
Netanyahu B'nai B'rith Lodge chose Philip Shurkin as this
years recipient of Israel's prestigious City of Peace Award
for his life-long commitment to Israel, the community, and
his fellow man. Special Guest for the reception was Israel's
Consulate General, Southeastern U.S.A., Region, Rahamim
Timor (left), who expressed his appreciation to Helen and
Lou Rogow for their check for a $1,000,000 purchase of State
of Israel Bonds.

scenes, but there are major dif-
ferences between them, in ad-
dition to style. First, in
Sephardi Haggadot the biblical
illustrations, often from the
beginning of Genesis through
the Exodus, are grouped at the
front of the Haggadah.
Sometimes two or four scenes
on each page form a con-
tinuous narrative. The style
and subjects came from il-
lustrated Latin Bibles and
books of the Psalms that were
made in France, but whose
popularity spread to Spain. To
these, Jewish legends were ad-
ded by Sephardi artists.
A second difference is in the
scenes of contemporary life. In
Sephardi Haggadot there are
more pictures of activities in
the synagogue: illustrations of
the service or the family leav-
ing the synagogue, the reading
of the Haggadah on the Sab-
bath preceding Passover, and
the distribution of matzah to
the congregants. They reflect
the essential role of the house
of worship in the Sephardi
By the 20th Century, few
Haggadot remained in private
collections. One outstanding
collector was Rabbi David
Solomon Sassoon (1880-1942),
born in Bombay to a successful
Baghdad mercantile and bank-
ing family. He lived in
England, as did his son, Rabbi
Solomon David Sassoon, who
came to Jerusalem in 1960,
where he continued his
father's scholarly and
charitable activities. In order
to raise money for Sephardi
educational institutions the
world over, he has been selling
off the 1,000 or so manuscripts
his father collected.
In 1975, when one of the auc-
tions took place at Sotheby's in
Zurich, a fund was established
in Israel to redeem some of the
books. The whole nation par-
ticipated in this campaign;
school children went from door
to door to help raise the money
to enable at least part of the
Sassoon treasures to reside in
Israel permanently. For-
tunately one of the
manuscripts, a 14th Century
Catalan Haggadah, is now in
the Israel Museum; six other
important codices are in the
Jewish National and Universi-
ty Library.
A Hebrew manuscript with
decorations costs at least
$300,000, if one happens to
come up for sale. A few of
them are exhibited from time
to time, and there are always
some on display at the British
Library in London and at the
Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
But fine reproductions can
now be enjoyed by all in
fascimile editions and in the re-
cent calendars and greeting
cards that have been published
in Israel.

MKs Talk Peace With Palestinians
Bat Mitzvah
Labor members of the
Knesset, including Vice
Premier and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres, are attempting
to put together a peace front
with representative Palesti-
nians from the West Bank.
Peres met last Thursday
(Mar. 26) with Hanna Seniora,
editor of the East Jerusalem
Arabic daily Al-Fajr, and
Fayez Abu-Rahme. Both have
been mentioned as possible
members of a Palestinian-
Jordanian delegation in peace
talks with Israel.
Seniora, who makes no
secret of his sympathy for the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, was one of four Palesti-
nians who attended a meeting
with Labor MKs Abba Eban
and Ora Namir last Wednes-
day at the King David Hotel.
The others were Mayor Elias
Freij of Bethlehem and two
Nablus businessmen, Said
Kanan and Bassel Kanan. The
six signed a joint statement
calling for peace talks within
the framework of an interna-
tional conference which would
include "legitimate represen-
tatives of Israel, Jordan and
the Palestinian people." The
statement said, "a peace set-
tlement must contain elements
meeting the legitimate securi-
ty rights of Israel and the
legitimate rights of the
Palestinian people."
The meeting was smaller
than anticipated. Several key
A Technion family dinner was hosted recently by Carrie
Rosenblatt (right) at her Palm Beach home for the purpose of
bringing together young adults and members of the Israel In-
stitute of Technology at the Technion in Haifa. Joining Mrs.
Rosenblatt are Mr. and Mrs. Louis Rogow.
Attending the Chapter 2000 dinner are Carol Barack, Janice
and William Turansky, and Helen Jenkins Dorrs. Guest
speaker was Wolf Blitzer, Washington correspondent for The
Jeruialem Pott.
figures from the administered
territories did not attend
because they refused to sign a
statement which made no men-
tion of the PLO. Seniora in-
dicated he was taking a per-
sonal risk by signing.
"I know there are dangers
involved, but I am willing to go
ahead because I value peace
much more than war," he told
Labor MK Haim Ramon, an
outspoken dove, said he stayed
away because a meeting
without PLO representation
was flawed to begin with. Ac-
cording to Ramon, the basic
weakness of all recent
meetings between Israeli
policymakers and leaders of
the Palestinian community lies
in their divergent attitudes
toward the PLO.
"Whereas the Palestinians
by and large stick to the PLO
as the 'sole legitimate
representative of the Palesti-
nian people.' Israeli leaders
want no contacts whatever
with the PLO lobby in the ter-
ritories," Ramon said.
But Eban was optimistic.
"We have decided to step up
the pace of dialogue," he said:
He warned, however, that it
was an illusion to believe the
continuing impasse does no
