Two million dollars were

and for Project Renewal.
"Our 1984 campaign has been
kicked-off with record in-
creased fundraising. We look
forward to a successful
campaign which will make it
possible to increase funding
for our local agencies and the
many services in Israel which
we support through the United

that the awareness of
increased needs locally is
resulting in the involvement of
many new people with our

'Where There's A Will,
There's A Way'
An Interview With George Will
Director of Public Relations,
Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County
Those of us who spend
sleepless nights watching late
night T.V. or who rise early on
Sunday mornings to watch the
news programs, are familiar
with the distinctive wit and
penetrating intellect of George
Will, noted columnist and
T.V. comentator. His cherubic
face (he says people confuse
him with Robert Redford!!!)
and easy manner, make listen-
ing to his commentary a sheer
George Will was in town last
week for the Special Gifts
Cocktail Party given on behalf
of the 1984 Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County-United
Jewish Appeal campaign. We
met over breakfast the next
morning to discuss the pertin-
ent issues of the day .
everything from football
(which he defines as violence
punctuated by committee
meetings) to the upcoming
Presidential election (he's
an avid Reagan fan) to the
present situation in the Middle
When asked about the
media's perception of Israel,
and in particular its reporting
of the Lebanese crisis, he com-
mented "The newspapers are
very fastidious about the ac-
curacy of grocery ads, but they
were Goebbels like in their dis-
tortion (of the Lebanese war)
pulling casualty numbers out
of air like 50,000, 80,000,
100,000 numbers of no
relationship to any solid re-
porting. The fact is the Amer-
ican people have a kind of
sentimental view of Israel. Is-
rael is orange groves in the
desert, Mozart in the Negev,
and all that stuff, and there is
an Athenian side of Israel. But
Israel has no choice but to be
Sparta also and have certain
marshall virtues to use force."
He said that the Americans
"flinch" from witnessing this
force. Particularly when it
comes on our television sets.
"If there would have been
television at Gettysburg," Will
stated, "this would have been
two countries. The country
would not have put up with
the carnage and they would
have said nothing is worth this
price. They see Israel using
force, and they say any use of
force is wrong. That is the
current mood, but Ronald
Reagan is helping to change
that mood."
George Will sees America's
recent policy towards Israel as
coming under the heading of
"reinventing the wheel."
Every three or four years," he
stated, We discover the only
ally of any consequence we
have is Israel. We have what
are called reassessments.
Someone gets disappointed, or
Israel does something that
makes the State Department
sad (and the State Department
exists to keep 22 Arab clients
happy). Then the State
Department gets peeved with
Israel because Israel does not
think that it exists to keep the
State Department happy.
Then we go through a cool
period and someone says we
are going to reassess our rela-
tionship with Israel. Then
some little boy in the back of
the room, 'the same one who
said the emperor has no
clothes,' said look Saudi
Arabia is run by 3,000 cousins,
2,000 of whom have Lear jets
out in the desert pointing
towards Geneva. If they don't
believe in Saudi Arabia, why
should we? There is only one
place in the Middle East that
the United States can land an
airplane tomorrow and
that is Israel. So every three
years we discover the wheel. It

Help Me To Become Reunited
With My Father In Israel
Former Prisoner of Zion
Shkolnik completed sever
years sentence in July 1979,
and it has been 10 months of
waiting for an exit permit, to
no avail. When released he
went to his father in Lvov, but
since the authorities refused to
register him there, he had to
leave and go back to Vinnitsa,
where the family used to live
before his arrest and before his
wife and daughter's emigra-
tion from Russia to Israel.

I appeal to all those who
have children!
I was five years' old when
my father, Isaak Shkolnik,
was arrested. I could not
understand what was hap-
pening around me. Early in
the morning on the Sth of July
1972, five strangers came to
our apartment, told father to
get out of bed and took him
away. What remained in my
memory were books and other
things thrown all around the
floor. And my mother, her
face covered with tears, who
told me that this was a search.
I then saw my father 10
months later in prison.
Mother and father were sitting
far away from one another,
there were two high tables be-
tween them and a soldier was
walking along between the
tables. There was a large clock
on the wall. My parents talked
and kept looking at the clock.
I was allowed to sit on my
father's knees. Half an hour
later he was taken away. I
quickly took his hand and
wanted to go with him but
they pulled me away from him
by force. This was called "a
There was another visit
later, just before my mother
and I left for Israel. I was
seven years old then. For three
days we were on the train on
our way to see father, we slept
on benches in the cold wooden
building of the railway station,
waiting for the bus that would
take us to the camp zone. I
remember very well how
mother and I had to undress in
order to be searched before
our meeting with father. I
remember very well the steps
of the guard behind the
window, my parents' quiet
conversations and then they
took father away again .
More than six years passed
since then. Mother and I live
in Jerusalem now. Mother

Random Thoughts
If you have never been at or
gone to an old time wedding in
the East Bronx, then this
column may come as a
revelation. However, if you
have been an invited guest to
such a simcha, then you'll
know that everything I write is
Most wedding halls in the
1930's and 1940's were large
lofts located right above
assorted retail stores. An
incredibly long staircase had
to be climbed before you
reached chasenah heaven.
Once you puffed your way to
the top, the first stop was a
coat room with an attendant.
On a shelf you immediately
spotted a saucer holding a few
dollar bills. This was to
remind you that individual
tipping was requested since in
those days such responsibility
did not belong to the host.
You had to ransom any and all
belongings parked there for
the evening.
The bride, the bridesmaids,
mothers, aunts and other fe-
male relatives all wore gowns
made by lower east side coutu-
rieres. The dressmaking
shops catered to every figure
and every purse. They created
designs to suit each individual
at prices that would seem
ridiculous today. True, they
were a bit ornate, but going all
out for a family wedding was
the way it was done.
The groom and his ushers
sported rented tuxedos. There
were no fancy colors. A
tuxedo was black and that was
gether. They were elderly men
who had retired from
restaurant jobs. Their union
kept them solvent by assigning
them to weddings. All of then
wore ancient tuxedos with the
greenish tinge of age, many
were infirm and walked with a
shuffling gait resulting from
so many years of being on
their feet. Almost uniformly
they were testy and ill
humored, too old to work, yet
too young to remain idle.
The meal itself was the same
no matter who did the catering.
Each table had a dish of sour
pickles and tomatoes, a plate
of olives and celery, and
abundant sliced challah. A
bottle of ginger ale and one of
seltzer (the kind with the
shpritzer handle) stood like
two sentinels flanking a fifth
of rot gut rye. We had not yet
grown sophisticated enough to
appreciate scotch.
Fruit cup, chicken noddle
soup, roast chicken with
kishkeh, potatoes, plus peas
and carrots followed. The
inevitable dessert was fruit ices
and a cookie. The finale was
tea or black coffee.
Immediately following the
beverage, your waiter passed
around a plate filled with
toothpicks. This was your cue
to take a toothpick and
deposit a dollar bill on the
plate. The hosts did not spring
for the tip, you did.
All through the meal and
long after, the band hocked
and banged away. Everyone
danced. There were plenty of
horas, lots of jitterbugging
and ample waltzes so that
everyone got a chance to show
Well, many years have
passed. We now hold wed-
dings in classy hotels with
elegant surroundings and
gourmet meals. Cheap liquor
has been replaced by fine wine
and imported spirits. No more
three piece bands, no more
rude waiters, and no more
toothpicks. Today we strive
for refinement and propriety.
As for me, I'll go wherever
you invite me. But for a really
hotsy-totsy evening, find me a
tacky hall, chicken soup,
kishkeh, and a waiter in a
moldy green tuxedo. That's
what I call really living!

Latchkey Kid Program Becomes A Reality
Assistant News Coordinator
The Jewish Federation of

working together to build a
ommunity. Thanks to three
individuals associated with the
Jewish Federation, children
who come home from school
,o an empty house because
their parents work, will now
have some sense of security.
A gift of $2,000 has been
made through the Endowment
Fund of the Federation by a
couple, who wish to remain
anonymous, to begin a Latch-
key Kid Program locally
"Latchkey" children are
recognized by housekeys worn
on a chain around their necks.
Mark Mendel, staff asso-
ciate with the Jewish Federa-
tion, saw Fran Hathaway*s
article in The Post which des-
cribed the Latchkey Kid Pro-
gram. She noted that Crisis
Line would be able to absorb
the cost of providing a phone
link with children who were on
their own after school hours,
but money was lacking to print
brochures, telephone stickers
and other informational
material to initiate the service.
"I became interested in this
(program," stated Mendel,
"because of the number of
working mothers in many
Jewish families today. Ob-
viously this was a problem that
touched the Jewish commun-
ity and which could have a
great impact on Jewish kids."

NAJVS president John
Creenberg also reported "an
ever-growing number of small
businessmen facing bankrupt-
cies and "large numbers of
young college graduates with-
ui any opportunity for em-
ployment," as well as "a
growing number of young

ca,e8ory comprising most
American Jewish families,
reeling from the continuing
blows of the recession and the
impact of a shift of the Ameri-
can economy to a technologic-
ally-oriented base, is now
clearly "at risk."
GREENBERG reported the
NAJVS findings in testimony
before a Congressional field
hearing of the Public Assis-
tance and Unemployment
Subcommittee of the House
Ways and Means Committee
held in Atlanta during the
52nd General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federation
last month. The text of his tes-
timony has now been released
by the NAJVS office here.
Greenberg also told the
Congressmen that the volun-
tary sector was contributing
substantially toward solving
the problems threatening the
viability of the middle class
but that the needs remained so
great and so critical that it was
beyond the resources of vol-
untary agencies to "achieve
the sufficient" without "the
full participation" of the fed-
eral government.
He reported that a recent
national survey, completed by
the NAJVS in cooperation
with the CJF, disclosed that
"well over 30,000 of this mid-
dle class group have registered
for Jewish Vocational Services
over the last 18 months, "a
minimum increase of 16 per-
cent of the total current case-
loads of these agencies."
GREENBERG said the
study supported NAJVS find-
ings "that Jews, like other
Americans, are showing up in
great numbers at our agencies
for service." Specifically, he
reported, the Jewish job
agencies list "major increase
in the 25-55 year age group,
particularly the 45 and over
segment, and in both college
undergraduates and gradu-
Greenberg reported that
jobless persons "who had
been making 520,000 to
$45,000" annually "were now

holds are applying for assis-
He declared that 60 percent
of the 28 affiliated NAJVS
agencies reported a decline of
interest by young people con-
cerning college-bound plan-
ning. Declaring that there was
for him "a special irony" in
that finding, he said he had
been chairman of the Detroit
Jewish Welfare Federation's
educational loan service since
1969, "a clearing-house for
college students in need of fi-
nancial assistance."
GREENBERG added that,
despite the reported drop in
interest in college attendance,
the young Jews who do still
want to go to college "are
facing great difficulty." He
reported that the loan service,
which provides scholarships to
those who are indigent or
otherwise unable to meet tui-
tion and other college costs,
has received "a tremendous
increase in requests from mid-
dle income (or former middle
income) families in the
$20,000 to $40,000 (annual)
income range."
He said that, in that data,
"is the tip of the iceberg the
emergence of the 'new poor.'
Because of the great demand,
we are now able to fund only
75 percent of the requests" to

Invitations are now being
ized that "any program in the
general community that could
help these children would also
be good for Jewish kids." He
responded by contacting a
local couple who agreed to
make funds available to begin
the program. "They had a real
feeling for the fear that a child
home alone might have and
were surprised that a service
like this did not already exist
in the West Palm Beach area."
Because of their interest, they
provided the $2,000 through
their Philanthropic Fund, a
part of the Endowment Funds
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County."
The Endowment Fund was
established to create reserves

Stained Glass Windows Enhance JCDS Chape'
Assistant News Coordinator
When the Jewish Commun-
ity Day School held their
Siyum HaTorah in November
people who saw the new
stained glass windows in the
chapel in the Merkaz, the
multipurpose building, were
overwhelmed by their beauty,
stated David Wolf, director of
the school. "I think it is
admirable that our school has
such beautiful windows. We
are indebted to Madame Bea
Alexander of Palm Beach for
providing us with the funds
for these unique windows. The
imagination and creative ideas
of the committee that went
into bringing this project to
fruition is to be commended."
The committee to design
and obtain the stained glass
windows was chaired by
Marjorie Berg, an interior de-
signer and owner of Marjorie
G. Berg, Interiors. The other
two committee members, M.
Ali Gavrin and Lorraine
Virshup, worked with Mrs.
Berg to research Jewish
history for the purpose of
finding ideas to incorporate
into the design of the
windows. Mrs. Gavrin. who la
associated with the firm,
Gavrin Art Concepts, took the
ideas of the committee and de-
signed the artwork for the
windows which was then
translated into the medium of
glass b\ McMow Art Glass of
West Palm Beach.

sign youthful looking so that
the children could identify
with it and yet, at the same
time, would still be appealing
to adults," stated Mrs.
And that is precisely what
they accomplished. Because of
the shape and structure of the
windows, they were divided
into different sections. The

A rainbow forms the back-
ground on the upper sections
of the two center panels,
symbolizing God's Covenant
with Noah, explained Mrs.
Berg. On the left window, un-
derneath the rainbow, are
scenes from the Garden of
Eden, Noah's Ark, the Tower
of Babel, Moses at the burning
bush receiving the tablets, and
twelve children, representing
the Twelve Tribes, crossing the
Red Sea.
The committee turned to
modern day Israel to create the
window on the right. Children
are pictured dancing in front
of the Western Wall with the

is dead." He commented that
the United States was in a very
"precarious position" and at
"loggerheads" with two na-
tions the Soviet Union and
Syria. "We don't even know if
their leaders are alive." He
said he felt that Syria did not
want to go to war with Israel
and that the Russians did not
want to get into one either,
since there are 6,000 Russians
standing around there. "I got
in trouble with Arab American
groups a couple of weeks
ago," he said, "because I got
a piece of videotape from a
friend in the Israeli hmbassy
which they had taken off Sy-
rian television in Israel. It was
a ceremony commemorating
the Yom Kippur war, and it
featured these battle generals
sitting in the stands and young
16-17 year old girls standing in
front of them biting heads off
snakes. I would not say all Sy-
rians are like that I am say-
ing that is the regime we are up
against." He commented that
"the only language they
understand is force. Even
though the American liberal
mind says that the problems of
the world result from the fact
that we don't understand each

other. The idea that you are
going to sit down with the
snake biters and talk to them
and say can we be friends and
they'd say we really never
thought of that what a nice
idea! now really."
Will said "someone once
ask Assad would you feel
more kindly toward Israel if
you got back the Golan
Heights? Assad replied 'Golan
Heights Haifa means as
much to us as the Golan
Heights'. When asked why Sy-
ria has never exchanged Am-
bassadors with Lebanon, they
said how can you exchange
Ambassadors with another
part of your own country. It is
like East and West Germany
it is the same country basic-
ally then they take a bite
out of a snake and go on to the
next question."
I asked Mr. Will if he felt
the PLO was destroyed. He
commented that it was des-
troyed by being delegitimat-
ized. "The PLO has done it
with mirrors playing on the
European appeasement reflex
for a generation now. It has
never been anything but an
army and not a very good
army roaming around and
being expelled from Jordan,
Beirut, Tripoli and now finally
being taken over by the Sy-
rians. You know the PLO was
expelled from Beirut, but has
not been expelled from Wash-
ington. They have an office in
Washington, D.C. I was on
Nightline the other night with
a PLO guy sitting right next to
me. It was funny, I was saying
beastly things and he was
George Will believes the Is-
raelis did the right thing in go-
ing into Lebanon. The only
wrong thing they did was stop-
ping outside Beirut where they
took "seven weeks of murder-
ous publicity." "Sharon
should have gone in," he
stated, "it would have been
much better and then he
should have turned right and
then gone into the Bekkaa
Valley. I know it sounds
callous to assign to Israel all
this fighting, but Israel is the

ed the Camp David agree-
ments when they were signed
in September, 1978 by Premier
Menachem Begin and the late
President Anwar Sadat.
Smith said he sought to re-
assure Mubarak that Egypt
labored under "misconcep-
tions" regarding the agree-
ments reached between Shamir
and President Reagan in
Washington two weeks ago
and that they would not
prejudice American relations
with Egypt. Mubarak, for his
part, made it clear that Egypt
expected increases and im-
provements in its U.S. aid
package commensurate
those pledged to Israel.
SMITH SAID he tried to
convince Mubarak that minor
concessions by both sides
could break the impasse that
has developed in the Egyptian-
Israeli peace process. Bui
Mubarak was plainly troubled
by Israel's insistence that
resumed negotiations with
Egypt for example, over
their border dispute at Taba
must be held in Jerusalem. He
seemed to indicate that this Is-
raeli demand was a major ob-
stacle in the way of a resumed

Democrat said.

Federation's important work
in our Project Renewal com-
munity of Hod Hasharon. The
entire community must now
get involved in the completion
of this vital effort."
Peter Cummings, Project
Renewal Co-Chairman, com-
mented, "The community has
had the opportunity during the
past two weeks to hear the
Hod Hasharon Singers. They
performed at many of our
synagogues, agencies and at
our community Chanukah
celebration at Camp Shalom.
This wonderful quartet was an
outgrowth of a musical
program for youngsters that
we funded through Project
Renewal. These particular
four girls have traveled to
Europe to represent Israel on
the international level. We can
be very proud of the positive
effect which Project Renewal
has had on their lives, the lives
of their parents and relatives."
Cummings noted that a
special supplement was
included with the Dec. 9 issue
of the Floridian and urged that
it be read by all the members
of the Jewish community.
Mr. George Will, the Pulit-
zer prize-winning syndicated
columnist and well-known
television commentator spoke
to the group. He spoke
movingly of Israel's
importance to the free world.
"The real question still is not
whether America will save
Israel but whether Israel will
save America," Will com-
mented. He reviewed in detail
the strategic advantage which
America enjoys because of its
alliance with Israel. He shared
the comment of an admiral
that "a most powerful factor
for peace exists in the Israeli
airforce. The Russians know
that in time of war the life of
their Mediterranean fleet
would be quite brief." Will
said that a clear statement of
American resolve on behalf of
its own national interests in
the Middle East will benefit
the entire region.
Mr. Will pointed out that
the recent American attack on
Syrian gunners in Lebanon
proved that America can
adopt a posture of military
offense against its enemies in
the Arab world. "The oil still
flowed and the Embassies in
Washington did not close," he
said. "Rhetoric should not
intimidate us," Mr. Will com-
In response to questions fol-
lowing the fundraising
portion of the evening, Mr.
Will commented, "The years
ahead for the State of Israel
will be harder than the years
since 1948. Israel's enemies are
stronger but thankfully less
united." He commented that
he is also very concerned
about the willingness of
America to defend its own
national interests. "I believe
that the people of America
must become more able to
withstand international pres-
sure. This is a time of trial for
our civilization and we will not
survive without courage and a
will to protect and defend our
vital interests. This is where
Israel is most important for
America Israel and its
people demonstrate the
commitment of a free people
to the values of a democratic
society and the Israelis leave
no room for guessing about
their resolve. We should learn
from them."

Black Leaders Meet With Jewish GrJ
50 Young Black and Jewish
leaders met at American Univ-
ersity here recently to discuss
the differences between the
two communities and continue
the political dialogue that has
long existed between the two
minority groups in the United
"We can together do much
more in this society than we
can do as individuals," Rep.
Julian Dixon (D., Calif.),
chairman of the Black
Congressional Caucus, told
the forum. He expressed the
hope that "there can be a Jew-
ish and Black dialogue that
will confront problems openly
and honestly."
The conference, sponsored
by the American Israeli Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC)
and the Youth and College
Division of the National Asso-
ciation for the Advancement
of Colored People (NAACP),
was a closed discussion
between the young activists
from across the nation.
Thomas Dine, AIPAC's di-
rector, and the Rev. Edward
Hailes, vice president of the
NAACP and president of its
Washington, D.C. branch,
stressed the need for the two
groups to continue working
"Blacks and Jews have
shared each other's pains,
helped each other's causes and
worked more closely than any
other of America's ethnic
groups," Dine said. Hailes
noted that there were "no
eternal coalitions but we al-
ways have eternal issues we
can come together on."
Hailes said that differences
between Blacks and Jews in
recent years were mainly over
the issue of quotas. "Our
agendas were different," he
said, but the differences "are
not deep" and "when we
needed this coalition, we often
got it."
Dine, who said that Amer-
ican Jews today were a
"muscular minority," said
that Jews wanted to "deter-
mine their own destiny." He
said he believed that some of
the differences between Blacks
and Jews were due to the fact
that Blacks, too, no longer
wanted others to determine
their destiny.
An Overshadowing Issue
The one issue that seemed to
overshadow the meeting was
Black anger over a recent New
York Times advertisement
sponsored by a group called
"Jews Against Jackson,"
which accused the Rev. Jesse
Jackson of being anti-Israel
and anti-Semitic. The Jewish
Defense League's vocal op-
position to Jackson's cam-
paign for the Democratic
nomination for the Presidency
was also sharply criticized.
Hailes said he understood
the majority of American Jews
did not support the ad. He
said he believed the Jewish
community could handle the
situation, just as he said the
NAACP had taken care of its
own extremists. Dine said he
hoped that Jackson would be
"treated fairly" by Jews. He
said AIPAC would assess
Jackson as it would the other
seven Democratic Presidential
Dine and other AIPAC of-
ficials met with Jackson last
week in an effort to convince
him that the ad did not rep-
resent the Jewish community.
The meeting was arranged by
Mark Siegel, a political con-
sultant, at the request of
Washington Mayor Marion
Barry, a Black who also at-
tended the meeting.
Jewish Sapport
Of Black Issues
Dine stressed at the meeting
with the NAACP leaders that
he and many other Jewish
leaders received their "bap-
tism in politics in the civil
1960 s. He pointed Z\
close working SLJJ
between Blacks and J^l

mier Menachem Begin said

The Rabbinical Corner
Mary Travers and The Soviet Jews
Temple Judea
Last summer, when Susan
and I were in Israel, we read
that Peter, Paul, and Mary
would be making a one time
concert appearance at Sultan's
Pool in Jerusalem. We plan-
ned our schedule so that we
would be able to travel to
Jerusalem from Tel Aviv in
order to attend this concert.
What we did not know was
that Mary Travers would be
staying in our Jerusalem hotel
and that we would have the
opportunity to meet her.
At the concert, it seemed
that almost every American of
our generation who was living
in Israel journeyed to this
unique outdoor amphitheater
set below the walls of the Old
City to hear Peter, Paul, and
Mary. We met Americans who
had made aliyah and were
living as far north as the
Galilee and as far south as the
Negev. Everyone remembered
what Peter, Paul, and Mary
had done to inspire and uplift
the social consciousness of our
generation. However, all of us
learned something very unique
about the kind of work Mary
Travers is presently doing for
the Jewish community. During
the concert, Mary explained to
all of us that she has been
involved in the struggle to save
Soviet Jewry. Last summer,
Mary traveled to the Soviet
Union with Al Vorspan and
Rabbi David Saperstein, the
guiding forces behind the
social action program of the
Reform movement. Marv told

this crowd of thousands that
as a non Jew, she feels a special
bond to the Jewish people and
particularly to the refuseniks
in the Soviet Union who long
to live in lands where they can
openly and freely identify as
Jews. During the concert, we
participated for the first time
in a new song, "Light One
Candle." As thousands of
people sang, illuminated by
lighters and matches, we gazed
at the golden walls of the Old
City high above us, and fought
back tears. We knew that the
Soviet Jews, despite the
brutally oppressive Andropov
regime, would find hope and
warmth from our concern and
our love for them.
Following the concert, we
returned to our hotel and
encountered Mary in the
lobby. We told her how much
we had admired her work for
the Jewish people, particularly
her visits to Moscow and Len-
ingrad and the song, "Light
One Candle" which her group
had composed.
Five months later, Susan
and I and our Sisterhood
president and dear friend,
Edith Grushow were in
Houston, attending the
Biennial Convention of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations. Mary was a
guest of the convention and
participated in a series of
workshops on Soviet Jewry.
We were able to meet Mary
again and expressed to her
personally our thanks for the
gifts of her own creativity
which she was giving to our
opressed brethren who long to
be free.
At the conclusion of the
convention, Mary led the

entire assembly of delegates in
"Light One Candle." Again,
Susan and I were deeply
moved. We remembered that
Mary had sung this song to
Soviet Jewish families in
Moscow and Lenningrad, to
that vast assembly of
Americans and Israelis linking
arms together in Jerusalem,
and we know that she wi
this song as she helps i
us keep that candle bud

continue the sacred strut
