Sunday, May 29 was the
first time that over 2S0 donors
to the building fund of the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric
Center had the opportunity to
tour the building and see what
was accomplished due to their
help and support. They viewed
the major areas of the Center,
stopping at IS stations where
the features and services were
explained. Brunch was served
afterwards in the cafeteria.
Included in the tour were
special features of the resident
rooms, nurses stations, sol-
arium, synagogue and audit-
orium, medical service wing,
social service wing, resident

assured those present that the
Center will not dein service to
those people in need and that
priorities v,ill be to those who
need the facility. Blonder
stated that in case of the
Center having more applicants
than can be accepted, the
Social Services staff will help
place them on a temporary
basis as needed in other insti-
tutions in the community.
"The building is designed to
add another 120 beds to the
facility in the next few years
providing there is a demand,"
said Blonder.
People's com ment s
throughout the morning were
very positive. One such ob-
servation came from Thelma
Rachesky whose parents are in
a temporary situation in
another institution and are
awaiting notification of ac-
ceptance to the Center. "This
Center is a dream come true
for people like my parents.

Four school buses were
donated by Mr. and Mrs.
Robert D. Rapaport to the
Jewish Community Center in
time for the summer youth
programs. They will be used
by pre-schoolers to teen-agers
in activities ranging from the
new teen travel program to the
sports camp at Camp Shalom.
Pre-schoolers will be able to
take field trips, school age
children will use the buses for
their no school holiday pro-,
grams and the buses will be
available for the use of the
Jewish community as well.
According to Fran Witt,
acting executive director of the
Center, transportation has
been one of the most difficult
facets of the summer
programs. In the past, COT-
RAN has been chartered for
trips which proved both costly
and inconvenient. "This gen-

What is the significance of the Israel-
Lebanese agreement?
While it is not a peace treaty, it formally
ends the state of war that has existed between
Lebanon and Israel. Going beyond a
technical security arrangement it represents
the action of a second Arab state in formally
recognizing the sovereignty, political in-
dependence and territorial integrity ol the
State of Israel.
To achieve this agreement Israel made
substantial accommodations to the extent
that there are those in Israel who maintain
that it conceded major points of vital interest
to the security of Israel. As in the case of
Sinai, once again Israel has demonstrated its
readiness to take major risks in the interest of
What are the consequences of the Syrian
rejection of the Israel-Lebanese agreement?
The agreement between Lebanon and
Israel stands on its own, entering into force
with exchange of instruments of ratification.
It does not require Syrian approval or accep-
tance. Nevertheless, Israeli withdrawal of its
armed forces is conditioned on the simul-
taneous withdrawal of Syrian and PLO
forces, which must be achieved in separate
agreements between Lebanon and Syria and
Lebanon and the PLO. The safety of the
Israeli citizens in the north would once again
be threatened, and the possibility of
achieving Lebanese sovereignty jeopardized
were the Israelis to withdraw without such a
simultaneous Syrian and PLO withdrawal.
That the Syrians reject the agreement is not
unexpected. While it condemns agreement on
a clause by clause basis, they would have
rejected any agreement that removes a second
Arab state from the Arab-Israel conflict.
They had hoped to intimidate Lebanon
into backing away from the agreement.
Failing that, Syria will, as itself has stated,
"do all we can to foil the agreement." They
are attempting to do so through their Druze
allies in acts of terrorism in Beirut and other
forms of armed attacks they are inciting.
What's behind the Syrian posture?
While Syrian troops have been present in
substantial numbers in Lebanon since the
mid-I970's on the pretext that they were there
to protect Lebanese sovereignty at the invita-
tion of the Lebanese government, the reality
is that Syria has always maintained that
Lebanon is part of a Greater Syria, and that
Lebanon was an artificial creation of the
French. Reflecting that position, Syria has
never had diplomatic relations with Lebanon.
Will Syria ultimately withdraw its forces
from Lebanon?
Even with the intransigent posture of
Dear President Reagan,
Please! Intervene on behalf of Yosef Begun,
Lev Elbert, and Yuri Tarnopolsky, all of whom
face trials and sentencing for fabricated
charges. Their only crime is their desire to live
in Israel. Please urge that the charges by drop-
ped and they by allowed to go with their
families to Israel.

It is still conceivable that circumstanc

The decisive factor in the intransigent!

military and diplomatic support given S*j
by the Soviet Union. Without that back
Syria would be acting with much grQ
Syrian boldness is derived from u
presence of more than 5,000 K\m

Random Thoughts
Sooner or later most of us
are laced with the seemingly
impossible task of hosting a
catered affair. It all begins
rather simply. You agree with
your mate that the wedding
should be modest but in good
taste. The guest list will be
kept to a respectable
minimum, it does not have to
be an eating orgy, and a large
orchestra is not really neces-
sary. That's what you think!
Starting with the guest list,
the production is in the
making. You had intended
inviting only Cousin Sylvia to
represent her family, but
Sylvia won't come unless
sisters Becky, Ruth, and Ida
are included. Tanta Rose will
not accept without bringing
her children Brenda, Cobina,
and Montgomery whom you
haven't seen for twenty years
What to do?
You have to contend with
the bride's side as well as the
groom's side. If you are the
party giver, you'll probably
end up entertaining a regiment
of people you don't even
know. The important thing is
to retain a proper perspective
and keep your sense of humor.
How about the time and
place? It may begin as a quiet
little luncheon but before your
eyes the plans balloon into a
lull-Hedged, knock-down
drag-out affair with all the
trimmings. You are a sitting
duck and easy prey for every
caterer, florist, photographer
and orchestra in the immediate
world. Your name is foot-
balled around the privacy
becomes a sometimes luxury.
The quiet luncheon matures
magically into an evening
banquet at a fancy hotel with a
guest list that continually
grows and multiplies.
About caterers. They are a
breed unto themselves. Their
sample menus are cleverly de-
signed to entrap you into
ordering only gourmet dishes.
Recipes you never dreamed of
are paraded before you and
such confusion ensues that
you are only too glad to let the
caterer do his own expensive
thing. An open bar is a must
with liquor being dispensed
lavishly throughout the entire
So you finally have the
food and drink arranged and
then comes the flower selec-
tion. Of course the altar and
temple hall must be decorated.
Table flowers must be color

Cemetery Association for the burial of "Sheimos." Sheimos are
old prayer books, bibles, etc., which are not discarded as trash
but are buried with reverence in a Jewish Cemetery. The plot,
which was donated to the school, will be used for a ceremony

Yiskor appeal on the last day of Pesach for the benefit of the

school has enabled it to expand scholarship monies available for
tuition assistance to children attending the school.

Edna Hibel, one of Ameli-
a's foremost contemporary
jtists, has been invited to
hibii her original oil paint-
,gs and stone lithographs in
Jrusalem at Hebrew Univer-
Ey's Maison de France, June
through July 14. A con-
urrent exhibit of Hibel's
,ork will be held at Jeru-
blem's King David Hotel.
J Most of the 50-piece exhibit,
(hich will also include the
fclebraied 66-year-old artist's
sculptures in bronze and
orcclain, are from the Ethel-
belle and Clayton Bion Craig
Collection of the Hibel
Museum of Art in Palm
Beach. The Hibel Museum is
the only non-profit museum in
the United States dedicated to
the work of a living woman
The drive to obtain this
exhibit, the first ever accorded
an American artist by Israel's
oldest university, was spear-
headed by the American
Friends of the Hebrew Univer-
sity in recognition both of
Edna Hibel's role in raising
over S3 million for Hadassah,
B'nai B'rith, and various other
Jewish organizations over
recent years, as well as of the
beauty and peace portrayed in
her work. As Dr. Moshe
Pryves, former President of
Hebrew University, remarked
on visiting the Hibel Museum
of Art, "Here is the feeling of
Shabbas, the holiest of days."
In addition, Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin
numbers among Edna Hibel's
thousands of collectors

The Income Tax Exclusion For
Sale of A Principal Resident
Florida residents owning a
Ihome in another state, or
Those contemplating a change
of residence, should be aware
af the income tax rules relating
the sale of their former
homes. .
The income tax law provides
one time election to exclude
Sp to $125,000 of gain from
the sale of a principal resi-
lience. There are two require-
nents: (1) attainment of age
15 before the sale, and (2)
)wnership and use of the
broperty as a principal resi-
dence for at least three years
luring the five year period
priding on the day of sale.
Another provision defers
ain on the sale of a principal
esidence to the extent that the
purchase price for the new
esidence exceeds the sales
krice of the former residence.
this exclusion applies at any
age, and the replacement must
occur within two years before
or after the sale of the old resi-
Judicious use of both sec-
tions can maximize tax sav-
ings. For example, if the house
is sold at a small gain, the once
in a lifetime election should
not be made, because the new
residence may be sold at a
larger profit at some later
date; the replacement exclu-
sion, which is mandatory,
should be relied upon.
Obviously, if one is a
Florida resident, his out of
state home is no longer his
principal residence. The sale,
if at a profit, should be struc-
tured so that it is within the
prescribed three and five year
Marital relationships also
affect the $125,000 exclusion.
Both spouses must join in the
election to exclude $125,000 of
gain, even if one spouse has no
interest in the property and
will not benefit in any way
from the sale.

Consequently, those partici-1
pating in second marriages
may unwittingly lose the op-
portunity to make an ex-
clusionary election, if one of
the spouses is "tainted;" that
is, having made a prior elec-
tion, either in a previous mar-
riage or as a single person. In
such a situation, the residence
should be sold before mar-
Individuals owning homes
with potentially large profits
should seek professional ad-
vice in connection with a

in marital status, either a re-

take steps to preserve their
right to make the election.

The Rabbinical Corner
Why You Need the Synagogue
Temple Judea
Each time I hear the figures
approximately 10 percent
of our Jewish population is
affiliated with synagogues in
our community I think of
what 1 can do to change this
situation. Recently, 1 have
been working with families
who are affected by the ter-
minal illness of a loved one.
These families sense the pro-
found nature of synagogue
affiliation because they are
being helped by the synagogue
at a time when they need help
the most.
Indeed, the synagogue
provides a unique support
system during times of pain
and sadness. The synagogue
provides rabbinic counseling
immediately when a family
needs it. The synagogue
provides a place to seek
comfort in an atmosphere of
freindship and warmth. A
friend of mine commented
that the outpouring of concern
in the form of telephone calls
and notes was overwhelming
while he was hospital-
ized. He volunteered to speak
from the pulpit and urge the
unaffiliated to join the
synagogue because for him,
his wife, and his family, the
synagogue represents a truly
caring institution.
This sense of caring is very
much evident following the
death of a loved one. The
synagogue represents a com-
munity of human beings who
are concerned with the feelings
of a family long after they
have experienced the pain of
losing someone close to them.
Rabbinic visits and efforts by
the congregation to help the
bereaved resume a meaningful
life tells those afflicted with
pain that the synagogue is not
just a place for happy social
occasions but a center filled
with caring, concerned human
Indeed, God does not single
out any human being for
tragedy, disease, death, and
sudden catastrophic events are
often part of the mystery of
existence. Fain as well as joy is
the price we pay for the
privilege of life. The synago-
gue as the House of God must
be viewed as a source of
strength, a place filled with
spirit where we can acquire
tools to help us through the
mystery of existence. Blaming
God or God's House for our
ills, traumas, and disap-
pointments will not help us
deal with this pain. Turning to
the synagogue will provide us
with the precious spiritual
resources of an institution
which has provided this help
for over two thousand years.
Twelve weeks from now, the
Jewish community will be
ushering in the High Holy Day
season. Utilize these 12 weeks
to return to the synagogue.
Utilize these 12 weeks to affi-
liate yourselves with one of the
many synagogues which bless
our community. We are
waiting to meet you. We are
waiting to help you find
meaning in synagogue affilia-
tion. No one is exempt from
the totality of human ex-
perience. When you join a
congregation, be assured thai
not only will you find a place
to share your joy but you will
find a supportive community
lo help you through the pain.

Rag* 2 / Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
President's Report
A Year of Challenge for Federation
As I complete my second term as your Federation President it
is with a great sense of accomplishment that I look back on the
past year. This has been a year of challenge for the Jewish
Federation. Beginning this past summer with "Operation Peace
for Galilee" in Lebanon, our community was called upon to raise
additional dollars for human services in Israel. As you will read in
the General Campaign report, we met this challenge with over-
whelming support from the local community. Our overall cam-
paign reached record totals due to the commitment and dedication
of many hundreds of volunteers who worked in the men s and
women's division campaigns.
This year began with a successful leadership conference held in
October. Lay leadership and professional staff, along with
representatives from our beneficiary agencies met to discuss,
evaluate and plan for the year ahead. The spirit of cooperation
that was demonstrated showed the deep concern we all share for
providing top quality programs and services for our Jewish
After twenty-one years of service to the community we "came of
age." Many of our beneficiary agencies established new and
permanent homes helping to build a strong and visible Jewish
community in 1983. The Benjamin S. Hornstein Elementary
School of the Jewish Community Day School moved into its own
facility on Parker Avenue, providing the students with a good
learning environment for their education and cultural needs.
The Joseph L. Morse Geriatric Center facility was completed
and will open its doors in July. This beautiful facility will allow
our elderly the opportunity to live out their golden years with
dignity and respect while receiving high quality care.
Our Jewish Family and Children's Service was the third of our
agencies to find a new home, giving them the opportunity to
expand their services to meet the needs of our growing com-
The Jewish Community Center has just completed its
feasibility study in cooperation with the Jewish Federation under
the leadership of Buddie Brenner. The results of this study will
pave the way for a long awaited Jewish Community Center
This year was a significant year for our community, as our
Jewish Federation was singled out on the national level first for
the most coveted of all awards given by the Council of Jewish
Federations, the Shroder Award, which we received for our efforts
in establishing a Coalition of Human Service Agencies to in-
vestigate and explore alternative means of financing for human
services as a result of Federal cutbacks. We also were the
recipients of two national public relations awards.
As one of the fastest growing communities in the country our
Federation has been chosen this year by the Council of Jewish
Federations and the United Jewish Appeal to participate in a
series of pilot projects to help aid in our planning for the future.
These national organizations constantly look to our community
for providing them with knowledgeable leaders.
Jewish education has always been a top priority for our com-
munity. This year we demonstrated this commitment by hiring a
full-time Jewish Education Director. This program has provided
consultation services to the local synagogue schools as well as
sponsored in-service training programs for religious school
educators. As a result the lines of communication were
strengthened between the local synagogues and your community
Federation. Meetings have been held with congregational rabbis
and presidents to discuss areas of mutual concern. In addition at
the request of the Palm Beach County Board of Rabbis the
Federation has established a kashruth committee to assist with
the development of kashruth guidelines in commercial businesses
throughout the community.
As we look ahead to the future, planning has begun for a strong
campaign for our Project Renewal neighborhood in Israel Hod
Hasharon. A committee under the chairmanship of Irwin Lew
has started to make plans for what will be the most exciting
"people to people" experience for members of our community with
the people of Israel.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the
hundreds of volunteers and to the Federation staff who have made
1983 a year of great challenge into a year of great opportunitv for
all of us. We must rededicate our efforts and direct our in
volvement to the fulfillment of a promise as one people. Building
on our strength, we will accept this challenge for the yew ahead

Executive Director's Report

Federation Raises Jewish Consciousness
Norman Schimelman,
Executive Director
This Federation's Annual Report, which is being published for
the first time, documents the full agenda of our activities and ac-
complishments achieved by us during this past year. While our
annual campaign occupies "Center Stage," as it must, activities
and programs of "community building" have expanded and soli-
dified the many diverse segments of our community. We have
reached out to organizations in the Jewish and non-Jewish com-
munities, which have responded to our attempts to work together
in order to enhance the quality of life of all members of our com-
munity. We maintain an excellent relationship with the United
Way of Greater Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach Com-
munity Chest, assisting each other in areas of common concern.
In the area of agency relations, the Federation Executive Direc-
tor convenes regular meetings with the Executive Directors of the
beneficiary agencies. Information is exchanged and ideas are de-
veloped and implemented relating to mutual problems and needs.
For example, the Community Leadership Conference, held in
October at Sandpiper Bay Resort, was a collaborative effort in-
volving the Board leadership of all local Federation agencies.
The oositions of Jews in American society todav has pro-
foundly changed in the last generation. We are living in a free and
more open society than Jews have ever experienced in history. The
advantages are obvious the dangers to Jewish survivalism
more subtle. Yet, clear patterns have emerged. Judaism is viewed
as an open, rather than an integral part of individual identity.
Therefore, social responsibility, a major Judaic precept, is viewed
with apathy and indifference among many. A new generation is
maturing without the inherent sense of community which ex-
pressed itself as second nature to the present generation. The wit-
nesses of the Holocaust and the rebirth of the State of Israel are
growing older. Yet, the burden of conveying the significance of
these two monumental events and their implications for Jewish
community survival, lie with the witnesses. The Federation's
major role is to raise Jewish consciousness and, in so doing, pro-
vide only part of the rational for accepting social responsibility as
an opportunity, rather than as a burden.
The Holocaust Memorial Program (Yom Hashoa), conducted by
our Community Relations Council is a case in point. This pro-
gram, a tragic and necessary reminder, is part of the Jewish col-
lective memory and, as such, points the way to the need for us to
show the young how the Holocaust happened, rooted as it was in
theological and socio-economic anti-Semitism. We must each ask
ourselves the question Do we want Judaism to survive? Do we
believe that the survival of Judaism is synonymous with the sur-
vival of Israel? Do we want our children to be Jewish? If we be-
lieve that the answers to these questions are affirmative, the last
question must be How are these goals to be accomplished?
In all areas of Federation's endeavor, now that Federation is de-
veloping in more of its proper functions in the community, the role
of professional staff becomes crucial. Federation is the fundraising
and administrative, community planning and budgeting, and
community relations arm of the organized Jewish community. We
are composed of volunteers from all paths of life, all with diverse
and special talents. Our professionals hold open the community
door to Jewish leaders and help guide them to tasks which match
their talents. Our job is to provide information and orientation,
bring people together, and guide them to commonly agreed upon
objectives. We help them to fulfill those objectives for the mutual
satisfaction of the doer and the Jewish people who are in need.
I wish to express my appreciation to the professional and
clerical staff of our Federation for their dedication and hard work
during the past year, which has played a most vital role in the sue-
cess of this past year's accomplishments.
The needs of our people are becoming more acute each year. We
shall continue in our efforts to recognize and nurture the unique
opportunities given this generation.

Keeping pace with the tremendous growth of our Jewish com
iunity is indeed the challenge facing us today. The need far
quality programs and services for our local community, as well.,
rKo rtaaA (r.r maintainintr nur steadfast nartnershin witk tk. o.
the need for maintaining our steadfast partnership with the Sut*
of Israel, requires that we, individually and collectively, do all that
is possible to raise the necessary funds.
The special needs of the people of Israel were evident as we
traveled to the Middle East at the beginning of our 1983 campaign
for a leadership gathering involving all the Jewish communities in
America. Members of our Campaign Cabinet pledged to the people
of Israel that we would set a fundraising record in Palm Beach
County on behalf of the United Jewish Appeal and Special Fund
for Israel. I am proud to report that we have kept that promise!
The regular 1983 rampaign will conclude at S4.4 milKon,
$600,000 more than what was raised in 1962. In addition, $500,000
has been raised on behalf of the Special Fund for Israel, for a total
increase of S 1.1 million.
Our successes in Hunters Run, Eastpointe Country Club and
the inaugural golf tournament at High-Ridge Country Chib
demonstrated that hundreds of previously uninvolved people an
willing and ready to support our campaign in a very meaningful
way. In addition to raising funds, our campaign has established
foundation for future organization and leadership as we have
reached out to more volunteers and workers than ever before.
New gifts have played an integral part of our campaign. Daily,
newcomers arrive in Palm Beach County. It is our responsibility
through the campaign and other functions of Federation, to bring
these people into the Jewish community and help them to feel part
of what we do. Over 1,000 people made their first gift to our
community's campaign this year. This represented a significant
percentage of the total dollars raised in 1963.
As a result of our Special Gifts Dinner with General Alexander
Haig; our Community Dinner where over 400 people heard Moshe
Arens and demonstrated their support; the record $400,000 raised
on Super Sunday; and the across the board increases in each of
our condominium campaigns; we were able to fulfill our com-
mitment to our own local community and to Israel.
I want to express my personal gratitude to the many men and
women who worked so hard to achieve this record fundraising
drive. The entire Federation family shares in this achievement. I
am grateful for the generosity, enthusiasm and commitment of the
Campaign Cabinet and our workers and look forward to all of us
sharing in our Federation's rampaign in 1984.

Women s Division
A Year of 'Firsts' for Women's Division
Cynnie List
Presiden t, Women's Division
It is my pleasure to report
that this past year the Wom-
en's Division of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County has included an ef-
fective and diversified range
of our Developmental, Edu-
cational and Campaign Pro-
grams. This diversity has
been marked by both tradi-
tional successes and innova-
tive "firsts."
We began our year with
the Fourth Annual Presi-
dents' Coffee. We took that
opportunity to discuss plans
for a program being offered
to the leaders of the Jewish
Women's Organizations for
the first time this spring a
Leadership Skills Institute
designed to enhance the or-
ganizational skills of their
executive committees.
October ushered in an extremely exciting "first" for Women's
Division. On October 17th, seven carefully-selected representatives from
our Business and Professional Women's Group left for Israel on our
Federation-sponsored first Cameo Mission for Business and Professional
Women. The enthusiasm generated by these women has had a profound
effect upon the commitment all of us feel towards Israel and the Jewish
people. Their own awareness and commitment has been demonstrated by
their willingness to assume roles of involvement on committees and in
our Federation campaign.
During November we held our Fourth Annual Jewish Women's
Assembly. This community-wide event was again attended by the
capacity audience of 500 women who gathered for an indepth program
which explored the "1980a: A Decade of Concern-Challenges To Jewish
December saw another exciting "first" for Women's Division. We con-
ducted two Mini-Missions which included educational on location tours
of our local Federation beneficiary agencies. Approximately 30 Women's
Division Executive Committee and Board of Directors Members had an
opportunity to see and hear first-hand about each agency's work, as well
as the role of the Federation as an umbrella for all the agencies we visited.
Other highlights this year include the expansion of our Business and
Professional Women's Group. Business and Professional Women
throughout Palm Beach County attended a record number of programs
this year five in all which focused in on issues pertinent to Jewish
career women. This group's remarkable growth and success is reflected
not only in their membership numbers, but also in their increasing
awareness and response to our Federation campaign appeal.
Because Leadership Development is such an integral part of the
growth and development of our Women's Division, we offered various
programs which were designed to increase our knowledge of Federation
and our ability to communicate that knowledge to one another and to the
community at large. We in Women's Division believe that our women
will bring their skills to our Federation and community leadership, to the
greater enhancement and benefit of all.
In order to reach out, to the community at large and encourage other
women to participate in our programs, we held several Outreach
programs. In October, we held an Open Board of Directors Meeting
which featured a panel of our Vice-Presidents. In an effort to create other
informal settings in which new women could learn about our Women's
Division, we held two Coffees this year and held our Third Annual
Federation Tennis Cup in March.
As an active volunteer with Women's Division for over 20 years, and
its President for the past 2 years, I have seen Women's Division grow
immeasurably. Because both our objectives and our numbers have grown
so extensively, Women's Division has become acutely aware of the need
to plan for the future. Therefore, we have recently established a Long-
Range Planning Committee under our Administrative Department. This
committee is charged with careful and deliberate evaluation of our
current juncture, as well as helping define and plan our future.
As President of the Women's Division of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, I am extremely proud of our many ac-
complishments. Indeed, in this year of traditional successes and in-
novative "firsts," I have had the opportunity of working with a dynamic
team of committed, capable and creative women to which I extend a
sincere and heartfelt thank-you. Because of their involvement and
dedication, our Women's Division proudly continues to play a major role
in our Federation and in the overall development of our Jewish com-
munity in Palm Beach County.
Women's Division Campaign
New Level of Maturity and Achievement Reached
This past fall, the 1982-83
Women's Division Campaign
Cabinet enthusiastically en-
dorsed a Campaign Proposal
which recognized a new level
of maturity and achievement
I within our Women's Divi-
1 sion, one which addressed re-
jsponsibly our commitment
I to continue to be a major
Ifundraising arm within the
I General Campaign of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
The year has been filled
[ with many exciting "firsts."
A new $5,000 Category
[chaired by Berenice Rogers
land inspired by the Lion of
lJudah Pin (which was
created by the Women's
Division of Miami as an
["Award for leadership
[giving" and is now being
used in campaigns across the
[United States), successfully
[laid the groundwork for
[future campaigns and show-
led, us the potential of worn-
l s giving at this level.

Eft h ?reenb*un|. w not only a beautiful event at the Garden Club
i the bun N Surf, but it also brought us a record number of new workers
^d new dollars.
Part of the proposal presented by the Campaign Cabinet last fall was
to upgrade the minimum of our entry level event to $500. Adele Simon
served as Chairwoman and developed the concept of a Benefit Theatre
Performance as the event for the $500-$999 Category.
Because of the upgrading of our minimum level category, Soper Sun-
day became a very important portfolio within our campaign. Susan
Fisher undertook the responsibility of Women's Division liaison to Super
Sunday and once again we reached new levels of worker participation,
new gifts and dollar increases.
Eva Hirsch and Barbara Wonah co-chaired the Phonmthon and follow-
up which rounded out the Super Sunday efforts.
The Lands of the President Women's Campaign chaired by Ruth
Wuensky and co-chaired by Gerry Freedman has shown us once again
the strength and potential of personal solicitation in bringing in new
gifts, recovering lost gifts and securing substantial increases in pledges.
The campaign at the Lands of the President has nearly doubled this year.
The Business & Professional Women's first Cameo Mission led by
Alan Shulman brought not only enormous dollar increases (over 700 per-
cent) back to our campaign, but also developed seven truly committed
and inspired women who went on to inspire their peers at our first Busi-
ness & Professional Women's campaign event.
The year has seen a strengthening of leadership within our campaign.
We have honed campaign skills under the leadership of Joan Tochner and
Detra Kay. We have worked diligently and tirelessly toward our tl
million campaign goal.
Our hard working campaign associates for this year were Sheila
Engelstein, Dr. Elizabeth S. Freilich and Carole Klein.
Therefore, it is with great pride that we are able to report that as of
March 31, 1983, with over 2860 pledges in (this includes 707 new gifts!),
our campaign stands at $77,000 pledged to the Special Fund and
$978,000 pledged to the Regular Campaign, for a grand total of
$1,055,000 as compared to $713,000 in March, 1982. Those figures repre-
sent s 27 percent increase for the Regular Campaign and an overall in-
crease of 48 percent.

Providing Comfort for the Sick and Elderly
The Federation Chaplaincy, in its fourth year under the direc-
on of Rabbi Alan R. Sherman, ministers to religious needs, pro-
ides comfort and counseling to hospital patients and institu-
)nal residents who are not affiliated with Temples and Syna-
,gues in Palm Beach County. Rabbi Sherman also directs a corps
50 volunteers with a Chairman and Co-Chairman who comprise
ie Chaplain Aide Program.
The Rabbi and Chaplain Aides visit John F. Kennedy, Doctors
It. Mary's, Good Samaritan, Community and Holly Hospitals'
Hades Correctional Institution, 16 nursing homes and two retire-'
nt centers.
One-to-one" friendly visiting and religious services at institu-
ns for the elderly are the principal functions of the Chaplain
de Program. The Aides, residents of the Palm Beach com-
inity. many with special talents, conduct Sabbath services on
day and Saturday. Prayers, songs, lighting of the Sabbath
idles, benediction over the challah and wine are integral parts of
h Friday service. Religious observances at the institutions by
j Chaplain Aides and the Rabbi include blowing of the Shofar
jring the High Holy Days, visits to a Sukah on Succoth, special
ograms for Chanukah and Purim. A Passover Seder is con-
icted at each institution for the elderly.
The Chaplaincy cooperates with the Hornstein Jewish Corn-
unity Day School, Women's American ORT, Temples, Syna-
igues and other organizations which reach out to the institu-
malized elderly with programs of their own.
i Sabbath Prayer Book, which had been published by the
Jeration Chaplaincy through a grant by Jeanne Glasser in
imory of her late husband Louis, received the Council of Jewish
leration Award for 1982 for the "Best Special Publication-
lyer Book for the Elderly." The prayer book was prepared by a
jet committee under the guidance of Rabbi Sherman.
:he 1982-1983 period saw the continuation of the seminar work-
ip program for Chaplain Aides, with guest speakers from dis-
ilines involved with the treatment or care of the elderly in in-
| During the years ahead, the Chaplaincy looks forward to ex-
uding its services to the new Jewish Home, which is scheduled
| open in 1983. It plans to recruit more volunteers from the corn-
unity for its Chaplain Aide Program, so that residents may be
^itcd more often and religious programs may be extended to the
ptitutions, particularly during the summer months when many
'eb are on vacation. The Chaplaincy seeks closer cooperation
ti Temples. Synagogues and other organizations to utilize their
pmbership resources in an effort to improve the quality of life for
\e institutionalized.
The Chaplaincy, having aided in the establishment of kosher
od programs in a few nursing homes and St. Mary's Hospital,
ill continue to encourage and work with other institutions so
kit kosher food may be available to all Jewish residents of insti-
Itions, if they desire it. A continuing effort will be made to edu-
Ite the administrator and key personnel in all institutions for the
wly, in the culinary, social, cultural and religious needs of Jew-
i residents.

Community Planning
Preparing for the Future
The Community Planning Committee of the Jewish Federation
is charged with identifying new and unmet needs of the Jewish
community. This is accomplished through the development of
demographic and community studies, surveys and evaluation of
existing programs and services offered by our network of local
Jewish communal agencies. As a result of this research and
assessment process, the Community Planning Committee recom-
mends, within the limits of available resources and funds, new
programs and services to meet emerging needs.
Nineteen eighty-three was an eventful year for the Community
Planning Committee and Federation, beginning with the Federa-
tion Leadership Retreat held last October at Sandpiper Bay, Port
St. Lucie. There, a special session on community planning was
conducted which brought to light a number of important issues
and challenges facing our growing Jewish community. As a result
of that conference and continuous planning meetings throughout
the year, the Community Planning Committee was directly and
indirectly responsible for the following developments: the
establishment of a sub-commit tee on transportation to study and
assess the transportation programs of each of our community
agencies with the goal of developing a comprehensive plan which
would coordinate all transportation activity under one program;
the reconstitution of the Federation's Council on Aging to con-
tinue its work in meeting the needs of our older adult population;
approval for the establishment of a Kosher Meals Program spon-
sored by the Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches to
meet nutritional and social needs of our elderly; endorsement of
the Jewish Family and Children's Service's creation of a vocation-
al program to assist those in our community seeking job place-
ment vocational training and counseling; and, recently the revi-
sion of the Federation-Beneficiary Agency Guidelines, which is
now under review by each of the agencies.
The explosive growth of our Jewish community demands that
we, as community planners, possess accurate information,
evaluate the effectiveness of current programs and services, and
project future trends and needs with the purpose of developing
clear and well defined strategies to held build a strong and viable
Jewish community.
I have been privileged to work with an unusual group of men
and women who are dedicated to these goals and am BBBldwt
that as we continue to work together, the needs of our community
and the challenges they present, will be met successfully.

Community Relations Council
Striving to Increase Community's Awareness
During the past year,
the Community Relations
Council (CRC) has suc-
ceeded in making a signif-
icant impact upon the
community, both Jewish
and non-Jewish. Under
the direction of Rabbi
Alan Sherman, Director,
four major committees
sponsor innovative pro-
Leadership has con-
tinued in the Coalition of
Human Services, a pro-
gram organized by our
CRC in response to cuts in
social service programs.
The CRC received nation-
al recognition for estab-
lishing this coalition when
it was awarded the Wil-
liam J. Schroder award
from the C.J.F. at the
General Assembly in Los
Angeles. This program,
which has involved 80
agencies, has demon-
strated Jewish concern for local social problems.
Under the program "Non-Jewish Influentials," 55 local non-
Jewish leaders received the Mid-East Report of AIPAC.
At the suggestion of the Methodist ministerial leadership, a
seven month dialogue was established culminating with a suc-
cessful community two day seminar involving Jewish and
Methodist participation.
This task force also co-sponsored with the American Jewish
Committee a Conference on Extremism, where a capacity audience
received insight into the threat of the ttu Klux Klan. Jerry
Elsie Leviton
Thompson, a reporter from Nashville, Tenn., who infiltrated tk.
Klan for 18 months, presented his findings at a public meeting
At the annual Mid-East Conference in November, 800 peonu

To celebrate Israel's anniversary, the committee holds ui
annual Interfaith Breakfast, this year celebrating Israel's 35th
anniversary. A large community gathering of ministers, rabbs,
principals and teachers of the public schools and their students, u \
well as legislators and other elected officials, are invited to len|

One of the major areas of growth is the increased involvement
as a total community in the field of Jewish Education. Our syna-
gogues and institutions have increased their participation in
community-wide activities and plan even more cooperative efforts
for next year.
The Jewish Educators Council composed of the professional ed-
ucators of all institutions has been extremely helpful to the Edu-
cation Committee in many of the activities, particularly those in
the area of professional growth and education.
The Midrasha Judaica High School opened its doors on Sep-
tember 15, 1982 with forty-four students. To date, the Midrasha
has over fifty youth from nine synagogues attending regularly.

Opportunity for Jewish
immunity to Secure its Future
an L. Shulman
Stanley B. Brenner
The Federation's Endowment Program is in its fourth year
under the direction of Stanley Hyman. Since 1970 Jewish
Federations across the United States and Canada have developed
over one billion dollars in Endowment Funds. Countless new and
innovative programs and projects have been started as a result.
There are several cogent reasons for the existence and
development of the Endowment Fund of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County. They are:
To create a capital reserve to meet critical emergencies.
To support significant projects of importance to the Jewish
community for which funds are not otherwise available.
To provide a vehicle by which philanthropically minded
donors can achieve significant tax and estate planning benefits
while fulfilling their charitable goals.
During the period from September 1,1982 to March 31,1983,
the total restricted assets of the Endowment Fund reached 1.25
million dollars. During that same period, over 75 grants totalling
over $370,000 were distributed to 42 different organizations. A
major portion of those grants accrued to the benefit of the
Federation and its beneficiary agencies. There are three major
component Funds of the Endowment Fund. They are:
unrestricted endowment reserves, which consist primarily of all
bequests, one time unrestricted gifts, and earn income on
unrestricted funds. Another major component fund falls into the
category of unrestricted endowments in which the purpose of
disbursement is specifically earmarked or designated by the
donor. The third category is the Philanthropic Fund. This is the
area of greatest growth and development for the Endowment
Fund. Three years ago there were 9 such Funds. Today there are
25. As of this writing, there are a number of additional Philan-
thropic Funds in the formation stage or being considered.
In addition to the above Funds, the Federation and its
agencies are named beneficiaries under various charitable
remainder trusts. These trusts provide life income to the persons
who have established them, and upon their demise, the
Endowment Fund or the agencies will be the recipient of a sub-
stantial cash benefit.
The Endowment Fund of the Federation of Palm Beach
County must continue to grow if it is to fulfill its responsibilities
to the Federation and the community at large. An aggressive
development program is mandatory. There must be a continued
emphasis on the solicitation of unrestricted gifts, which is the
corner stone of the Fund's support system. The Endowment Fund
represents an unprecedented opportunity for the Palm Beach
community to secure its future and to provide a method for
sharing the charitable enterprise with a wide variety of donors.

Leadership Development
Enhancing Knowledge and

This year we have incorporated into our program the teaching
of "Jewish skills." Participants of the program researched and
discussed, with the total group, ceremonies done in the home, the
celebration of holidays, and origins of Jewish customs.
The overall Leadership Development program this year has
been condensed into a snorter time frame. The group, which
consisted of 35 participants both singles and couples, between the
ages of 25 and 40, met twice a month in the homes of Federation
board members. Programs for the year included topics such as
Jewish Identity, Jewish Traditions as a Means of Joy and
Inspiration, and Israel, its Political and Socio-economic Ties with
the Diaspora. One of our most successful programs this year was a
community institute which involved local agency directors who
discussed their individual needs and worked with the group in a
mock budget and allocations session. This program clearly
demonstrated the need to raise more funds for the servicing of our
local Jewish community. Our program on the Holocaust was
revised this year to address not only this dismal period of our
history, but included the plight of Jews all over the world in places
like the Soviet Union, Ethiopia and Latin America.
After our initial program, Leadership Development held a
special series with focal synagogue rabbis discussing various
aspects of Judaism. It is our hope that next year this program will
continue to utilize the expertise and knowledge of our spiritual
Our program ended this year with a Regional Young
Leadership Retreat in Haines City, Florida. This dynamic
program provided an opportunity for our Leadership Develop-
ment participants to interact with their peers from around the
state who have gone through a similar program.
The prime goal of the Leadership Development program is to
educate and train potential leaders for future roles in the local
Jewish community. We are busy working with the agencies to
give our participants an active role by placing them on com-
As each year comes to a close we reflect on our program and
evaluate on our effectiveness. We have introduced a new group of
young people to our community and our needs. We know that with
the training we have given them they will begin to share the
mutual responsibility of helping to build our Palm Beach County
Jewish community.

As chairman of the Public Relations Committee for the past
years we have been striving to find better ways to get the
message out to both the Jewish and overall community. We
continued this year to utilize our award winning advertising
campaign'' Fulfill the Promise" in the media. Through this vehicle
we hope to encourage new members of our community to become
involved in helping to improve the quality of Jewish life here in
Palm Beach County.
For the third consecutive year the Federation has captured
top honors in the national public relations competition sponsored
by the Council of Jewish Federations.
In an effort to improve the readability of our English-Jewish
newspaper, The Jewish Floridian, and to upgrade its appearance,
we gave the paper a totally new look and have begun to reach
further into the community to provide national, local and in-
ternational news of interest to all of our readers. I am happy to
report that our response has been overwhelmingly positive.
As our community grows, so will our need to reach out and
educate. Through an effective public relations campaign we will
continue to improve the understanding and nature of our local
Federation and its constituent agencies and motivate our com-
munity to fulfill its responsibility.

Jewish Community Center's
New Achievements Highlight Year
Jewish Community Day
School Begins a New
Era and a New Decade
August, 1973, the vision of a handful of dedicated people
became a reality when the Jewish Community Day School opened
its doors at Temple Beth El with a total of 18 students in at-
tendance in grades Pre-kindergarten through 2. The School's
founders, among whom were Ann Leibovit, Carol Roberts, and
Rabbi Dr. William B. Shapiro, dreamed of a school that would
provide the finest possible secular and Judaic education and
inspire students with a sense of pride as Americans and as Jews.
The Jewish Community Day School will begin its second decade
in August, 1983 with an enrollment of about 175 students in
grades kindergarten through nine. It will begin its second year on
its new campus. 5R01 Parker Avenue. This new seven acre campus
will house two divisions of the school: The Benjamin S. Hornstein
Elementary School and the Robert D. Rapaport Junior High
The decade between the founding of the school and its move to
Parker Avenue was a period of continual growth. During its early
years grades were added until the school matured to an
elementary school that went through eighth grade. The changing
needs of pre-adolescents and the availability of space made
possible the reorganization into the Hornstein Elementary School
and the Rapaport Junior High School. The Elementary School
includes grade Kindergarten through grade 6. The Junior High
School, Grades 7 through 9.
The Day School and its leadership can look back over the last
decade with pride and forward to the new decade with excitement
and anticipation. They expect to continue to provide a quality
education both in Judaic and secular studies. The Day School
anticipates a continued expansion of their relationship with the
Science Museum and its faculties for computer education. They
hope to further utilize in-school computers with all of their
children from Kindergarten through ninth grade. The new
" Merkaz" (multi-purpose building) will enhance the School's Art,
Music and Drama capabilities. The outstanding campus will
permit them to provide a fine physical education program and to
take the lead in establishing an elementary-junior high school
league for small schools. The Judaic program, added this year, is
an informal program of overnight and Shabbat activities that will
make Judaism a living experience for the students. The area that
is available on campus will provide an outdoor science lab where
students can experience living experiments and the excitement of
"growing their own." The Hot Lunch program, funded in part by
the U.S.D. A. Food and Nutrition program, will give the students
the nourishment for a hard day of learning and play.
In keeping with the philosophy that education means life-long
learning, the campus will serve as a center of cultural and
educational activities for the entire community.
The Jewish Community Day School, a beneficiary agency of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, has come a long way
since its modest beginning and can look forward to a bright and
exciting future.
The Day School belongs to all of us in this community. It is ours
to take pride in. The Administration of the Day School welcomes
everyone to visit the school and "Shep Nachas," too.

women, Women's Support Groups held at the Center have i
creased in number from ONE to FOUR.
The Center has expanded its program for singles in recog
of the increasing numbers of Jewish singles of all ages in our c
munity. A monthly singles newsletter lists a multitude of eva
available for Young Singles, Career Singles and for two i
groups which have formed this year, Prime Time Singles i
Single Parents. Support groups for single parents and for I
children meet weekly. The Single Parents Support Group i
with a counselor from the Jewish Family and Children's Service.
Representatives from the Center have attended a Womea'il
Management Conference and two Jewish Welfare Board Conva j
tions in an effort to continually seek ways to improve services ill
our Jewish community. We now are official members of theJe
Welfare Board.
The Center has had many successes in providing programs
services to meet the needs of the Jewish community using i
existing facilities. A Needs Assessment Study, co-sponsoredj
the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County under the leada
of Harriet "Buddie" Brenner, was conducted to ascertain I
needs and interests of the Jewish residents of the greater I
Beach area in respect to recreational, cultural and group activ
It further attempted to determine the degree to which thesei
quirements are met adequately by existing resources and facir
and the extent to which they are unmet. As a result, the Je
Community Center, a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federal)
of Palm Beach County, hopes to enter a new phase of servicet
the Jewish community.

Jewish Family and Children's Service
Reaches Out to More People
1982 was a year of transitions at the Jewish Family and
Children's Service. Increased staffing, chiefly in the Quick
Response Program, was offset by staff turnovers which led to a
lessening of the agency's servicing.
Now, among the services provided by the agency is the
"Home Health Aides" scholarship program. Begun in September,
the program provides a fully trained home health aide to qualified
persons and families for up to 4 hours weekly. The public's ac-
ceptance of this service is evidenced by the fact that more than
147 individuals called the agency during the year for this form of
service. The program is funded to help approximately 14 families.
The agency continued to train volunteers to assist Quick
Response personnel. For 1982, the number of visits and contacts
conducted by these volunteers more than doubled.
The agency's effectiveness continued to be felt in our com-
munity; more people than ever before were touched by the J.F. &
C.S., a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County. Because of this our personnel are identifying more
problems than ever before; undoubtedly in the next year our
agency will have to focus upon this to best serve the many families
in our community, in need.

Morse Geriatric Center Prepares for Opening


Preparations for the opening of the new Joseph L. Morse
Geriatric Center this summer are moving ahead at a rapid pace.
With construction of the 120-bed long term skilled nursing care
facility for the elderly now nearly completed, the Executive
Director and the professional and management department heads
are making every effort to assure the Center will be fully fur-
nished, equipped and staffed when the first residents are ad-
Erwin H. Blonder, president of the Board of Trustees, and
Alec Engelstein, chairman of the Building Committee, report that
the building is now undergoing the stringent structural, safety
and environmental inspections for nursing homes as required
by state and local regulations. Mr. Blonder has also activated
Board of Trustees committees that will be responsible for working
with Center staff on policies and practices governing admissions,
housekeeping, medical and rehabilitative services and personnel.
High on the agenda of pre-opening preparations for the
Center is the staffing and training of personnel on all levels of
service by the various department heads. Of particular concern ia
making certain that the furnishings, equipment, food service and
recreational activities will enable the elderly to live meaningful
enriched lives in a comfortable and hospitable environment. The
observance of Kashruth, the services of a rabbi, and modern
equipped medical units will be distinctive features of the Center.
Stressed throughout the planning is ensuring the nuality of
nursing care by a skilled, efficient and understanding staff.

reports that applications for admission are being received at an
ever growing rate since the initial announcement that applications
were being accepted.

applicants are being conducted. Persons interested i: applying
