as active young leaders of our
Jewish community, exemplify
the next generation of com-
mitted individuals who are
now assuming the responsibi-
lities of leadership. We are
greatly pleased that their abili-
ties and enthusiasm will be the
driving force behind our Super
Sunday effort."
Working with a Super
Sunday committee, the Levys
will coordinate the day-long
event which will involve more
than 500 volunteers from all
areas of the community. The
phonathon, designed to draw
the Jewish community to-
gether in a unified effort, will
reach out to new contributors
to the campaign and close any
"open" gifts. This last cate-
gory includes people who have
contributed to the campaign in
prior years but, as yet, have

declared here that it is time to
end the myth (hat Israel was

"Israel was created by the
Jewish boys who gave their
lives," Rosenne said. The
ZOA is an 87-year-old
organization with more than
120,000 members nationwide.
RoM'nne delivered his remarks
betOi'C a capacity crowd at the
Mayflower Hotel here.
Also ai lit* dinner a message
was read from President
Reagan to /.OA, and the
Justice Louis D. Brandeis
Award was presented to Abe
katz, philanthropist and
Zionist benefactor, of Corpus
Christi, Tex.; and to Jack Lef-
kovvitz, ZOA associate trea-
surer, of New York. The

past to such notables as Jacob
Javits, Llizabeth Taylor,
Louis Lehrman, and Golda
Rosenne cited Britain's
recent decision to sell sophis-
ticated weapon systems to
Arab states as "an example of
how all European countries
recklessly arm Arab coun-
tries." Rosenne said that "this
forces Israel to maintain a
balance of power, which
strains the Israeli economy."
Kosenne also declared that
in recent weeks "newspapers
have been reporting the
economy of only one country:
Israel." He charged that the
"disproportionate focus on
Israel at the expense of other
countries which are also strug-
gling economically reflects
hypocrisy in the press."
He said that Israel now
spends 25 percent of its gross
national product on defense,
as compared to the 6.4 percent
which the U.S. spends.
Rosenne was optimistic,
however, wheri'he spoke of the
recent Free Trade Agreement
passed by the U.S. govern-
ment on trade with Israel. He
said that the agreement passed
the Senate 97-0 and passed the
House of Representatives by
He was also optimistic that
iust as Egypt came to sit and
negotiate peace with Israel,
other Arab countries will
follow suit. However, he said,
this will only come about if
Israel remains strong.
Delegates from across the
country unanimously reelected
Alleck A. Resnick of Balti-
more to a second two-year
term as president of the
Zionist Organization of
America. The election took
place on the closing day of the
ZOA's annual convention.

In conjunction with the

Sunday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m.
These workshops will be held

parents, and especially Jewish
single parents, can learn and
develop their Jewish identity
together with their pre-
schoolers. Activities which
involve the parent and child
have been planned, drawing
heavily on the new curriculum
of the UAHC called. "To See

Lands of the President
Plisskin To Head Campaign
The Lands of the President
launched its 1985 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
campaign with an appeal to its
residents to top the $213,000
raised last year. Bernard
Plisskin, named to chair the
campaign at the Lands by
Arnold L. Lampert, general
chair of the 1985 Federation-
UJA drive, noted that Palm
Beach County is one of the
fastest-growing Jewish com-
munities in the United States
today. Plisskin said, "This
presents many challenges and
problems for us. In order to
keep pace with this trem-
endous growth, we must
support our local Jewish agen-
cies so that they may provide
programs and services which
will enhance the quality of
Jewish life here in Palm Beach
Bernard Plisskin
Plisskin noted that although
the primary challenge is care
for the elderly, we must also
be concerned with our growing
population of children and
young adults. "Even those of
us with dual residences need to
help create a Jewish com-
munity in Palm Beach County
which makes the expression of
our Jewish heritage and values
possible," he said. A special
appeal to Canadian residents
of the Lands to take an active
role in assisting the local com-
munity was made by
Canadians Tom Brown,
Alfred Freeman, Boris Levine
and Louis Stulberg.
Pliskin also said that "Israel
now more than ever needs our
support. Many social service
programs are forced to be cur-
tailed as a result of trying to
reduce the high rate of infla-
tion and growing foreign debt.
We in America and in parti-
cular the Palm Beaches must
stand by our fellow Jews in
Israel and assist them with the

Dora Roth, an Israeli
mother and Holocaust sur-
vivor, will be the guest speaker
at two separate events given on
behalf of the 1985 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
campaign. On Jan. 17, 4 p.m.,
she will address the residents
of the Fountains at Fountains
Hall. On Jan. 24, 4 p.m., Mrs.
Roth will speak to the resi-
dents of Royal Palm Beach at
the Indian Trail Country
Club. Dr. Jerome W. Lorber
is chair of the Fountains
Campaign and Milton Gold
heads the campaign at Royal
Palm Beach.
Dora Roth has been invited
to this community because she
speaks eloquently on behalf of
Israel. She knows firsthand
the necessity of building a
strong Jewish state. Dr.
Lorber and Gold both ex-
pressed their pleasure at
having Mrs. Roth as a part of
their respective campaigns.
They encourage the residents
of each area to meet the chal-
lenges of the Jewish people
and show their support for
Israel and the local community
by attending these events.
In speaking about her life in
Israel, Dora Roth has said, "It
isn't an easy life, especially for
mothers. My son is in
Lebanon. He was wounded
once in another war. I was
crying at his bedside and he
said, 'Stop being such a Jewish
mother. 1 have to do it. If we
don't do it, who will?'
"I'm not a politician. For
me, the most important value
is that Israel should exist and
we should do more to make
Israel stronger and a better
country to live in. We Israelis
feel we do a lot toward this,
but we can't do it alone. We
need help from Jews all over
the world."

A wild hog from East
Indonesia was recently the
most talked-about creature in
Israel. It is called the babirusa,
is a mammal, has hooves and
chews the cud. It possesses all
that is necessary to make it
kosher under Jewish dietary
laws. The meat of the babirusa
is said to taste exaclty like that
of the domestic pig. Israel's
leading rabbis are sceptical. A
noted Anglo-Jewish scholar
stated, "There is a case to be
made for its being kosher if its
mother is a kosher animal such
as a cow." If the animal
proves to be kosher, it will
blunt the edge of many color-
ful Yiddish expressions such as
"a chazcr bleibt a chazar."
Since many Jews prefer
seafood to meat of any
variety, they might be much
more excited by the prospect
of kosher lobster. Let some-
one discover a variety which
chews the cud, and his fortune
is made.
"Gesher" means "Bridge."
It is the name of an organiza-
tion in Israel which builds
bridges of understanding
between the religious and non-
religious in the Jewish state.
Gesher helps people realize
that those they oppose also
have hopes, dreams and needs;
that they are human beings
and fellow Jews. Tens of
thousands of Israeli high
school students have been
touched by the Gesher
program which turns the
desert of internecine strife into
green pastures of unity.
Internal tensions are a
festering problem. The
Prophet Isaiah warned,
"Those that would destroy
you come from your own
midst." WhUe Israel must
secure Jewish-Arab co-
existence, she needs, also, to
improve existence between
fellow Jews within Israel. The
various components of Israeli
society must be integrated.
Abu Nidal, Arafat's rival,
has died of a heart attack. The
Palestinian terrorist group he

in Paris; and on a Vienna
The Senate Foreign
Relations Committee adopted
a resolution introduced by
Senator Moynihan, urging
Syrian President Assad to
allow members of the Jewish
community to emigrate from
Syria to the United States.
Some four thousand Jews live
in Syria. They suffer physical
abuse and intimidation.
Restrictions are placed on
their movements and activities
and they are forced to carry
cards identifying themselves as
Jews. When asked why Syrian
Jews cannot travel, hold
government jobs or join the
army, Assad responded, "The
Syrian Jews are Syrian cit-
I all the others. However, we
ask them to assume fewer
burdens than the others." He
further stated that Syria's
treatment of Jews is an
"internal affair." In a recent
interview with Paris journal-
ists Assad added that he consi-
dered terrorist acts against
Israel to be a "patriotic and
humanitarian necessity."
President Alfonsin of
Argentina pledged to en-
courage Spanish authorities to
open diplomatic relations with
Israel. He expressed his op-
position to equating Zionism
with racism and said he would
work on behalf of Soviet
Jewry. He submitted to the
Argentine Congress a bill
punishing discrimination on
the basis of race or religion.
Two years in the making, a

Nahal is a branch of the
Israel Defense Force which
combines military service with
agricultural work. At its 35th
birthday celebration, Pre-
sident Herzog spoke of it as
"an unparalleled contribution
to the State of Israel," and
said it was as vital today as it
was at its beginning. Nahal
demonstrates the continuity of
Israeli society, where a strong
commitment to democratic
processes goes hand in hand
with a very non-militaristic
citizen army responsive to na-
tional needs and goals.

Chanukah Celebrations Enhance
Community Jewish Life
Jewish Community Day
Celebrations of the festival
of Chanukah at the Jewish
Community Day School high-
lighied the enhancement of
Jewish communal life this
year. Students in every grade,
from kindergarten through
eight, participated in a
program of service to a local
agency or group of Jews.
Programs included songs,
dances, skits, and other
presentations in honor of the
Chanukah holiday designed to
entenain and add meaning to
this festive time of ihc year for
members of our community.
Kindergarten visited Morse
Geriatric Center; first graders
went to Temple Beth Kodesh;
second graders had the privi-
lege of lighting theHanukkiah
at the Cross County Mall;
third graders gave pleasure to
residents at the Boulevard
Nursing Home; fourth graders
decorated windows with
Chanukah symbols at the
YWCA; fifth and sixth
graders traveled to Sutton
Park Convalescent Home.
Young students at the Day
School, under the direction of
Helen Schwartz, Rachel Stein,
and Shoshana Sharf, parti-
cipated in special Chanukah
parties, complete with songs,
dances, dreidel games,
refreshments, and the parti-
cipation of parents.
In the spirit of the original
Chanukah celebration, which
involved the Maccabees
rededicating the Temple in
Jerusalem, third, fourth, fifth,
and sixth grade students parti-
cipated in projects to beautify
the ritual life of JCDS
students. Third graders con-
ducted a detailed search for
Mezuzot on all the classroom
and building doors of the
school, and discovered that a
number of doorposts required
new Mezuzot. Part of their
celebration of Chanukah in-
volved affixing proper, kosher
Mezuzot on the appropriate
doorposts and learning the
meaning of the mitzvan of
affixing Mezuzot through a
study of Sh'ma. Fourth
graders did a major cleaning
of the school's sanctuary area
in the Merkaz building. Torah
scrolls were removed from the
Holy Ark, which was cleaned
by diligent students wanting to
preserve the beauty of the
school's synagogue. The
pulpit in the synagogue and
bookshelves located beneath
the Ark were also thoroughly
cleaned and lent a sparkle to
subsequent Chanukah
celebrations. Fifth and sixth
graders repaired torn pages
and ripped bindings of school
siddurim as a means of
showing their concern with the
need for proptr prayer books
to be used in school services.
Seventh and eighth graders
gave service to the younger
students in the school by
preparing "mini courses" of
special instruction about the
Chanukah holiday for
students in grades kinder-
garten through three.
The entire Jewish Com-
munity Day School family
gathered on Friday morning of
Chanukah week for a special
assembly, at which the work
of the third, fourth, fifth, and
sixth graders was lauded as
being particularly in the spirit
of synagogue rededication that
is the source of historical
Chanukah. Also part of the
all-school ceremonies was a
dedication of a Yad (Torah
pointer) and a Shofar (rum's
horn) which were dedicated to
the school synagogue by the
Dardashti family. The Jewish
Community Day School
Makhela (choir), which per-
formed beautifully at the com-
munity Zimriah, graced the
program of the school as-
sembly for Chanukah by
remembering Jerusalem in a
rendition of the song, "From
Atop- Mount Scopus." The
culmination of Chanukah
festivities at JCDS included
viewing the special video
presentation "Lights" and
joining in an ancient
Chanukah tradition of eating
soufganiot jelly doughnuts,
which, being fried in oil,
helped to remember the
miracle of the oil.
Adding to communitywide
festivities for the holiday,
JCDS students participated in
formal candle lighting cere-
monies of a huge Hanukkiah
mounted on the second-story
porch of the Administration

giving which women are
anxious to identify with each

continued. "It is only fitting
that they be honored for their
dedication and devotion to
Jewish ideals."

Chanukah Celebrations Delight
Elderly and Correctional
Institution Inmates
Chair of
Chaplains Aides
Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County
If ever 1 needed assurance
that the work of the Chaplain
Aides was worthwhile, this
past Chanukah week was a
revelation to me. Together
with Rabbi Alan Sherman,
director of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County
Chaplains Aides program, my
wife Ida Mae, and I visited the
Jewish inmates in the Lantana
Correctional Facility. Potato
latkes and mandel broit pre-
pared by my wife and brought
freshly made were on the
menu. Three young men, sur-
prisingly outgoing, friendly
and knowledgeable, par-
ticipated in the candle lighting,
blessings and singing. Rabbi
Sherman made conversation
easy and interesting as well as
meaningful. As we made ready
to leave, Mark (second name
deleted) kissed my wife and
with tears in his eyes, said,
"You have reminded me of
what I have been missing, my
family. I don't intend to ever
get in trouble again."
1 must confess that this, my
first visit to such a facility,
filled me with some trepi-
dation. The departure
however, after the gratitude of
the inmates, left us with an
inner glow.
We next visited The Medi-
cana Nursing Home, where a
program arranged by one of
our more active aides, Sylvia
Berger, was in progress. Sarah
Halbert, president of 01am
Chapter of B'nai B'riih
Women, was explaining the
story of Chanukah to a packed
room of residents and visitors.
Then they were entertained
musically by a splendid duo of
Mimi Tamer and' Jerome
Feinberg. He is the president
of BB Men's Council and
fine pianist. Mimi, a past
president of Olam Chapter BB
Women, is a singer of warmth
and charm. As we were
leaving, a resident said to us,
the Bergers are so good, the
residents don't have lime to
miss us. This is praise that
reassures me that I am asso-
ciated with the most dedicated
and selfless group of humans.
I am indeed proud.
For the seventh candle, we
visited the Belle Glade Correc-
tional Facility. Unfortunately,
this place houses more Jewish
people. They made ever)
effort to put us at ease. We
tried to bring to them reas-
surance that they are not for-
gotten, also to remind them
that even under the most diffi-
cult and trying times they
should remember their
heritage and tradition.

Students from area religious schools and the
Jewish Community Day School performed to
a standing room only crowd recently at the
first communitywide Chanukah Zimriah.
The songfest, held in the Merkaz of the day
school, was sponsored by the Jewish
education committee of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach County in
cooperation with the Kducators Council of
Palm Beach County.
Members of Temple Israel's children's choir were representative
of the various performers as they blended harmoniously in the
finale, a rendition of a popular Chanukah song. Children from
Temple Beth II. Temple Beth David, Temple Israel, Temple
Judea and the Jewish Community Day School, led by their
cantor or musical director, sang their own repertoire of
Chanukah, Israeli and Chassidic melodies to reach out to the
community in celebration of Chanukah.

Each renewal requires a new

A relatively young mother
phoned our office recently
with a "whole host of
She pointed out that she was
new to the area and was seek-
ing information on a variety of
topics such as, where to obtain
kosher food, what are the reli-
gious school alternatives
locally, where does one go for
Jewish recreational services,
and where can one gain help
for family problems when they
arise? I pointed out to my
young client that I felt
uniquely qualified to answer
the last of her requests, how-
ever, some of her earlier ques-
tions (and a few which I
haven't mentioned here) were
a bit more difficult to answer
with the assistance of printed
materials. All of the varied
resources of the Jewish com-
munity are seldom catalogued,
and in an easy-to-read format
at that. Some questions which
clients raise are so particular
and unique to that one indi-
vidual, that no catalogue
would be precise enough to
I spent some time on the
phone helping the young lady
with my own personal knowl-
edge of resources ("Which
public schools do Jewish
parents send their children to
in Palm Beach County,
Florida?") in our community.
I was immediately reminded,
as 1 was talking, of Sharon
Strassfeld's Jewish Catalogue,
which 1 feel is probably a must
for any contemporary Jewish
Stephen Levitt
family's library.
As my client received speci-
fics of some of the questions
she was raising, other ques-
tions concerning her role as a
Jewish parent seemed to me to
be of greater interest. I cer-
tainly felt that she needed to
avail herself of a clergyman's
advice and quite possibly
involve her children in our
Jewish Community Center
and Day School activities.
After I concluded my con-
versation I happened to
review, in our agency library,
Strassfeld's newest offering,
The Jewish Family Book.
Starting with the opening
chapter, "On Having
Children," there were at least
25 contributing authors cel-
ebrating the crises and occur
rences in every Jewish fanih
from birth through death in
C Efty*9 Edition,
Strassfeld has attempted to
cover as many diverse topics as
one can comfortably digest in
one volume. Particularly
emphasized in the book are
reconciling one's Jewish her
itage with the realities of
modern contemporary Amer-
ican existence. I noted sympa-
thetically that perhaps The
Jewish Family Book would .
have been an ideal going away

It certainly ranks as a favorite
of mine for the newlywed

Revisionist Historians Devising New Plan To Circulate Their Views
Revisionist historians are
seeking to link their right to
question the "historical
reality" of the use of gas
chambers by the Nazis during
World War II to the principle
of freedom of speech and the
First Amendment, according
to an official of the Simon
Wiesenthal Center in Los An-
Moreover, these historians,
some of whom claim the
Holocaust was a hoax and
others who call it a "Zionist
plot," are currently engaged in
a sophisticated effort to pene-
trate established organizations
such as Cosmet, the Commit-
tee of Small Magazine Editors
and Publishers, in order to cir-
culate their views on the Holo-
caust to a wider and more
influential audience.
"This new game plan,"
Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the
Wiesenthal Center explained
to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency in a telephone in-
terview from Los Angeles, "is
to hang their hat on the free-
dom of speech issue."
Cooper, associate dean for the
Center, also expressed concern
over efforts by revisionists like
rightwing publisher David
McCalden and Bradley Smith,
publisher of a revisionist
newsletter, to gain member-
ship in literary and other orga-
A New Newsletter Emerges
Smith's newsletter is called
"Prima Facie," and it has
been sent to publishers,
editors, reporters, public
relations and advertising firms
and other similar groups in
major cities throughout the
United States. It has printed
two issues to date, one in
October, the other last month,
and claims to have distributed
some 4,000 copies across the
Prima Facie, whose content
is similar to other literature
circulated by revisionists,
claims to inform "the press
and media about the censor-
ship, suppression of free
inquiry and the taboos used to
stifle critical examination of
the evidence commonly used
to support the alleged histor-
ical reality of the German
'poison gas chamber' tales."
ADL, Wiesenthal Center De-
Continuing, it said the
newsletter "reports on the in-
idlectual corruption" of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith and the Simon
Wiesenthal Center "as it is
revealed in their usage of
fraudulent documents,
slander, disinformation, and
pathological lying to en-

confirmed whether the
Bradley Smith listed in Spot-

who is listed as publisher of

Otherwise, acccording to
officials at the Wiesenthal

the decision to provide a

to be allowed to display nis
materials and address it under
the auspices of a so-called

The American Civil Libert-

McCalden had a right to

the interests of "intellectual

Cooper noted that while the
ACLU supported McCalden's
First Amendment right to
freedom of speech, the ACLU
backed off when the issue was
switched from a speech issue
to a contractual agreement the
CLA had with McCalden.
Since it was a private agree-
ment between two groups, the
CLA was able to cancel
McCalden's scheduled ap-
pearance, nullifying the
contract, Cooper explained.

Good Neighbor Award
By JTA Services
BOSTON Msgr. Jorge
Mejia, Secretary of the Vati-

gious Relations with Judaism,
was in Chestnut Hill, Mass.,
earlier this month to receive
the annual Good Neighbor
Award of Mishkan Tefila, a
Conservative congregation
whose Brotherhood esta-
blished the award 25 years
Mejia is the first Vatican
official to be a recipient. The
decision to honor him fol-
lowed a visit to Rome last June
by Rabbi Richard Yellin, spir-
itual leader of Mishkan Tefila,
which included a meeting with
Pope John Paul II. Yellin had
first met Mejia a year earlier
when both attended an in-
ternational interfaith meeting
in Boston.
The presentation was made
in the presence of Boston's
Archbishop Bernard Law at
the annual Good Neighbor
Dinner Dec. 4, sponsored by
the Mishkan Tefila Brother-
hood and chaired by Benjamin
Lipson. The guests included
Rabbi Henry Michelman,
executive vice president of the
Synagogue Council of
America, the rabbinical
branch of Conservative Juda-
ism in the U.S.
Mejia, in accepting the tri-
bute, underscored its signific-

meeting with a moment of
silence in memory of Murray
Collier who served as co-chair
of the Village Royale on the

addition a tribute was made to

Representatives from 14
buildings discussed the up-
coming campaign kickoff.
Wertheim said, "Enthusiasm
for the campaign is parti-
cularly high this year. People
with whom we have been in
contact already are genuinely
interested in responding to the
needs of the 1985 campaign.
They are concerned with
Israel's severe economic crisis,
their effojts in resettling Jews
who are immigrating to Israel,
and, at the same time, are
sensitive to the needs of our
local Jewish population."
Other plans include a special
mini-mission tour to the
Federation's four beneficiary
agencies. The February 12
mini-mission will visit the
Jewish Community Center,
