the Hyatt into the "Old City"
of Jerusalem which has been
the passion and inspiration for
the Jewish people throughout
the centuries.
The Sodowicks continued,
"When you see the panorama
of Jerusalem that night you
will see in your mind's eye
Israel's children in new
schools, immigrants being
welcomed at absorption

1985 Campaign Reaches $4 Million
|The festive Major Gifts Dinner of the Jewish Feder-
lon of Palm Beach County, held on Jan. 17 at The
|eakers, brought community leaders together to hear
address by Senator Jacob Javits and an additional
seal for funds to assist in the absorption of Ethiopian
*s in Israel.
vlyron J. Nickman, president, commented, "To have
I opportunity to hear a man of courage and historic
kolvement like Senator Javits was an honor for
fryone in attendance at our dinner. We are moved to
)w that this wonderful man feels even now, in his
jrement, the importance of reaching out to his fellow
vs on behalf of Israel and this increasingly important
1 community."
lichael C. Burrows, Major Gifts Dinner chair, noted
the event, which raised over $2.8 million by itself,
llted through the efforts of his committee and
tssed that several major gifts donors had taken time
assist in the solicitation effort. "In addition, it is very
)ortant for the community to understand that many
major gifts donors were attracted to our Federation
fough the vehicle of this dinner. We have made many
portant new friends and raised significant new funds

mity," stated Burrows. (See additional photos on

If it does not, according to
these officials, a resumption

Catholic/Jewish Encounter Continues
Search For Mutual Understanding
Assistant News Coordinator
Twenty years ago a meeting
to explore common issues
affecting Catholics and Jews
could not have taken place,
according to two nationally
prominent clergy. Father John
Pawlikowski and Rabbi James
Rudin. They told an audience
of more than 750 people at the
opening session of the
Catholic-Jewish Encounter
held recently at St. Ignatius
Loyola Cathedral that, as a
result of the Vatican II
Ecumenical Conference held
in 1965 concerning the rela-
tionship between the church
and the Jewish community,
the barriers are breaking down
and making mutual under-
standing a reality.
The dialogue is taking place
throughout the country in
celebration of the 20th anni-
versary of the papal edict.
Locally the gathering of the
two religious communities was
sponsored by the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County and the Catholic
Committee. Elsie Leviton and
Nancy Couch served as the co-
Father Pawlikowski told the
audience that "we are sear-
ching for common elements
and differences. Perhaps there
are more disagreements now,
but that is not a bad sign. It
shows a maturation of growth
and the development of a rela-
tionship. In the differences we
come to appreciate and enrich
one another."

Rudin, who also engage

professor and former
president of the Catholic
Theological Union, did not
hesitate to state that the anti-
Semitic acts perpetrated by the
church and others, which went
uncondemned throughout the
ages, are a blemish on their
history. "Pope John Paul II
and others made it clear thet
these misunderstandings (that
Jews are responsible for the
death of Christ and destined to
be wanderers as a result) must
be corrected." Father
Pawlikowski feels that this has
been one of the positive devel-
opments in the last 20 years.
He went on to say that pro-
gress has been made in purging
the liturgy and teaching
materials of the historic charge
but passion plays continue to
be a real problem. According
to him, important strides have
been made in mutual enrich-
ment with Christians needing
to recognize that Judaism and
the Hebrew scriptures are at
the heart of Jesus' teachings.
Rabbi Rudin, in reviewing
the record of the church over
the last 2000 years, stressed
that it was not a good one but
he was optimistic, noting the
"enormous willingness to
change. Jews and Catholics
have suffered because of their
history with Catholics suffer-
ing from spiritual depreda-
"We must take a personal
and public oath to move to-
gether to a higher ground,"
said the national director of
inter-religious affairs of the
American Jewish Committee.
The dialogue, which began
in Palm Beach County five
months ago with monthly
meetings between the two
communities, continued A
next day at Temple Emanuil
where Father Pawlikowski and!
Rabbi Rudin addressed the
social agenda on which!
Catholics and Jews can workI
together. They noted that the[
economy and the peace issue I
are those areas in which agree-
ment can be reached and joint [
efforts have already begun.

Israel's northern border from

area it subsequently evacuates,

Tk BShzvat, New Year of the Trees, Folk on Wednesday This Year
Sap Will Rise
As Life Returns
uaiio ru
Tu B'Shevat, which this
year falls on Wednesday, Feb.
6, is the popular name for the
New Year of Trees. Its literal
| translation is simply 15th of
Shevat, the date when it is
believed that the sap begins to
rise in the fruit trees in Israel.
However, its real name in
Hebrew refers to trees and
planting (Rosh Hashanah le-
I Hanoi), an agricultural
holiday marking the date from
I which to count the age of a
[tree. This was originally for
reasons of tithe in Temple
times, and also to indicate the
maturation of fruit because, in
Jewish law, fruit cannot be
eaten until the fourth year.
The New Year of Trees is
mentioned in the Mishnah as
one of the four "natural"
I New Years.
There is very little ritual
associated with Tu B'Shevat
planting trees, partaking of
various fruits, and reading
passages in the Bible that
relate to trees, fruit and the
fertility of the earth. Appro-
priate passages are the story of
[how trees and plants were
created (Gen. 1:11-18); the
Divine promise of abundance
as a reward for keeping the
Commandments (Lev. 26:3-
18); and the parable of the
spreading vine (Ezek. 17)
which symbolizes the people
of Israel.
Sephardi Jews read from a
special manual entitled "The
Fruit of the Goodly Tree,"
first published in Salonica in
1753 and written in Ladino
In Israel, the custom of
planting trees is widely
practised on Tu B'Shevat, and
it has special significance now
that the people have returned
to the land and agriculture is
such an important facet of Is-
raeli life.
Judaism has always stressed
the holiness of the soil, and
there is a Biblical prohibition
(Deut. 20:19) against
destroying fruit-bearing trees.
This is known as bal lashhit
do not destroy. The Midrash
(Exodus, Kabbah 34) observes
that the reason the wood used
for the Tabernacle in the
wilderness was not from fruit-
bearing trees was to teach us
this lesson.
Planting a tree, especially in
Israel, is one of the greatest
mitzvot a Jew can do. It is said
that he who plants a tree loves
humanity, for one plants a tree
not for one's own pleasure,
but for future generations.
Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakai
placed so much importance on
it that he wrote: "If you are
planting a tree, and you hear
that the Mashiach (Messiah)
has come, first finish planting
and then run to the city gates
to tell him'Shalom.* "
Although most Jews
consider Tu B'Shevat to be the
New Year of Trees, Jewish
mystics, Kabbalists, designate
it as Rosh Hashanah le Han
New Year of the Tree. Which
tree? They mean the Tree of

The participants in the
workshop on "What Are We
Teaching About Each Other's
Religion" concurred that a lot
of misinformation is dissemin-
ated, knowledge about each
other is limited, and that more
effort should be made in reli-
gious schools to correct this
situation. Ann Lynn Lipton,
Jewish education director of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, and Cathy
Amrhein, director of educa-
tion at St. Paul's of the Cross,
led the workshop.
Rabbi Joel Chazin of
Temple Emanu-El and Jane
Dougherty, director of reli-
gious education at a local
church, conducted the session
on "Messianic Reference in
Scriptures." Specific passages
were read in an effort to
promote understanding of the
beliefs of each religion. For
example. Rabbi Chazin said
that the prophets should be
read for their essential mes-
sage for their time and ours
and should not be imbued with
other meanings; i.e., refer-
ences to the messiah.
Mrs. Leviton and Mrs.
Couch noted the enthusiasm
and understanding of the au-
diences. "They were very
attentive and concerned. Both
clergymen were extremely
open which led to frank
discussion the next day,"
stated Mrs. Leviton. Mrs.
Couch said that this encounter
spoke well for the future of
Catholic-Jewish dialogue in
this community. "A good
foundation of basic under-
standing has been esta-
blished." Both leaders agreed
that the dialogue has only
begun and look forward to
future meetings that will map
strategy for joint involvement.

In a kabbalistic text. Rabbi
Chaim Vital set out an
elaborate ritual for eating
fruits. There were three
groups, with ten varieties in
each group. Each group repre-
sents one of the worlds of
creation. The lowest level is
Assiyeh physical creation.
The second level is Yezirah
formation. Then a higher
level, Beriah, creation. The
highest and purest level,
Azilui, emanation, is beyond
any representation by fruit.
In Beriah, the entire fruit
can be eaten (carob, apples,
oranges, grapes, figs). In
Yezirah, there is reinforce-
ment around the heart, so the
fruits have an indelible pit
(peaches, plums, dates,
olives). In the lowest level,
Assiyeh, there is the greatest
need for protection and the
fruit has an outer shell to be
discarded (nuts, coconut,
Tu B'Shevat was a minor
and relatively insignificant
festival for Jews until the State
of Israel was proclaimed. Now
it is widely and happily
celebrated in Eretz Israel with
hikes in the country, songs in
honor of the feast of the trees,
and tree-planting ceremonies
in which schoolchildren par-
ticipate all over the country.
The festival symbolizes the
revival and redemption of the
land and further illustrates
that the world is God's
creation and that whoever
helps to preserve it is doing
God's work.

Second Generation Leadership
I J A Press Service
know what new brooms do,
and how the young generation
of today behaves. There are
also rigid stereotypes about
Israel's leaders, and fixed
ideas about its North African
But if you insist on old en-
trenched attitudes, you will
have a hard time getting to
know Nissim Zvili. Zvili, who
succeeded Ra'anan Weitz as
head of the Jewish Agency's
Rural Settlement Department
last June, can help you to stop
thinking in stereotypes for-
Zvili, at 41 some 30 years
Weitz's junior, is a farmer and
a paratrooper in the reserves.
He is also one of a growing
number of men and women
from Israel's new generation
taking up leadership positions
throughout the life of the
"I have the greatest respect
for Ra'anan," Zvili said in a
recent interview. "No one
could have done what he did.
He laid down a magnificent
foundation, and in many
areas, I'll be following him.
But 1 don't see myself as step-
ping into Ra'anan's shoes. I
come with my own work
shoes, my own style. I'm from
a different aliyah, and a dif-
ferent generation."
Zvili spent his first ten years
in a Tunisian fishing village
called Mahadia. He arrived in
Israel with his family in 1954,
part of the great waves of im-
migrants surging into the
young country, and his
family's first contact with the
Jewish Agency was immediate
as beneficiaries of the
Agency's human need
"My father, who'd been a
merchant in Mahadia, became
a farmer on moshav Olesh,
near Netanya, with the help of
Jewish Agency Settlement
Department instructors," say
Zvili. "And 1 became an
Israeli at the Youth Aliyah
village of Neurim." The
Settlement Departmant and
Youth Aliyah are funded
through the Jewish Agency by
UJA-Community Campaigns.
By 1982, when Zvili became
a candidate for Settlement
Department head, he was
growing cotton on Moshav
Olesh, and had been active in
the Moshav movement and the
Israel Labor Party for over a
decade. Once selected, he
undertook an 18-month study
program at Oxford, Cam-
bridge and Rehovot, designed
by Weitz himself, to learn how
to direct Israel's rural settle-
ment program the planning
and building of agricultural
and industrial kibbutzim and
moshavim within Israel's pre-
1967 borders.
Zvili learned well, and he
comes to the job with clear
ideas about what he wants to
"We haven't enough money
to do everything," he says.
"Inflation and rising costs are
reducing the Jewish Agency's
real budget year by year. So
we must slow down the pace of
settlement, and consolidate
what we've built.
"There's no point putting
more dots on the map, if those
settlements are socially and
economically unstable because

Danny Siegel: A Weaver of

T/edakah is the foundation
,f the Jewish experience for a
eneration of committed indi-
juals. Many remember
lulling coins into the blue and

lad rabbis with pais from

led form of tzedakah that

Jorldwide Jewish community.

Take for instance, the ficti-
tious situation of Jack and
Esther. They move to Florida
and into a nice two-bedroom
condo, while in their mid-
sixties, and look forward to
many years of health and
leisure together. They moved
with Esther's mother, Bubby,
a pleasant woman in her mid-
eighties, who is healthy and
somewhat active. Bubby had
lived with Jack and Esther for
many years, and they lived to-
gether quite amicably. Within
a year, however, Bubby had
fallen and broken a hip. Her
stay in a nursing home for
rehabilitation was to be
temporary, but it was to be for
a couple of months. While
Bubby was in the nursing
home undergoing therapy,
Jack and Esther's daughter
arrives with her four-year-old
for what was supposed to be a
brief visit. Their daughter an-
nounces that she and her
husband are splitting up and
she needs a place to stay with
the child. Their daughter is not
emotionally or economically
independent enough to find
her own place to stay, at least
not now.
Jack and Esther are caught
in a bind. Do they give
Bubby's room to their
daughter and grandchild on a
temporary basis? On a per-
manent basis? Or not at all?
Do Jack and Esther decide to
take a second mortgage on
their condo so that they can
get their daughter on her feet
and get them out of the house,
regardless of whether, or
when, Bubby comes back
from the nursing home?
Should Jack and Esther
consider working part-time so
that they can help Bubby with
her medical bills, or so that
they can see that their
youngest grandchild doesn't
go without anything that she
Jack and Esther wrestle with
these options, but don't know
what to do. Finally, they seek
Many people who provide
the service of counseling will
tell you that there's no "right"
solution to a dilemma like this,
and I'm going to tell you the
same thing. What's important
here is not just who's living
where, but what are the feel-
ings of Jack and Esther, other
than confusion? Are they
angry, guilty, depressed,
embarrassed, or just plain
exhausted? Do they have a
combination of some of thse
feelings? Maybe even all of
these feelines? How are thev
dealing with the feelings that
they have?
Sometimes people come to
counseling with no idea of
what the solution to the
problem is, and we help them
make decisions. Sometimes
people come to counseling
after they've made a decision
and there's almost no turning
back. We help them deal with
their feelings after they've
made that decision, and we
help them deal with the conse-

The TreeGod's Symbol of Optimism
Temple Belh Zion
The semi-holiday of the
fifteenth day of Shevat, which
occurs this year Feb. 6, marks
the first day of Spring, in
Jewish tradition. It is Jewish
Arbor Day and is the New
Year For Trees, when God
judges which trees shall die
and which shall live, as He
judges human beings. The Day
of Judgment For Trees occurs
six weeks after Hanukkah.
Trees are regarded as special
gifts of God. Traditional Jews
include special liturgical
prayers on Tuv B'Shevat.
Our Sages had great respect
for nature, in as much as God
is both the Creator and the
Ruler of man and of nature. It
was prohibited to cut down
fruit bearing trees, even when
waging war. Rabbi Yochanan
Ben Zachai said "If you are
in the act of planting a tree
and you are told 'Behold, the
Messiah is coming,' plant your
sapling firstand only af-
terwards go to greet the Mes-
siah." The Bible tells us "A
man is as the tree in the field."
The New Year For Trees is
an occasion which serves to
remind the Jew of his peren-
nial optimism, an optimism
brought home clearly by the
majestic trees which, in the
cold and barren winter, are
mute but nevertheless eloquent
witnesses to the care which
God exercises over the plant
world, even as He does on
man and on the entire Uni-
verse. This message is very
important in this point of
There is so much talk, these
days, about the world coming
to an end by the hand of man.
We hear so many predictions
about the inevitable cessation
of human life and of all veget-
ation. Tuv B'Shevat reminds
us during the cold and seem-
ingly lifeless winter that God
has not abdicated, that the last
word is, fortunately, not the
Rabbi Nathan Zelizer
word of man but the word ot
There are some religious
sects which advise their
followers that the time has
come for them and their fami-
lies to retire in some secure
shelter and await the expira-
tion of life. Jewish tradition
says "No! Like your father
Abraham-go and build an
Lshel-a Tree!" Abraham
planted the tree which is
still a living tree in Israel
four thousand years ago, in
time of crisis. This is the atti-
tude which man needs today.
Man must continue cultivating
the garden of the spirit, by
preserving the flower of man's
moral progress. This will dis-
courage man from reconciling
himself to live in a shelter of
constant dread of annihila-
It is no coincidence that Tuv
B'Shevat usually coincides
with B'Shalach the Sabbath
of Song when Jews sing
Moses' Song of the Future.
Jewish hymns of praise were
not solemn. The Psalmist,
speaks in Psalm 150 of the
"joyful note" of "the trumpet
of hope." "Serve the Lord
with joy," he urges, not in
solemn, sad and overly pious
notes. Compare this joy with
music played and chanted by
the evangelists of doom, and
by those who believe that
"optimism can only flourish

alcohol, drugs and suicide!
There is a story of a man
about to jump off the
Brooklyn bridge, who was
held back by a policeman. The
man showed the policeman the
daily newspaper he was
reading the big headlines,
and they both jumped. Tuv
B'Shevat comes along and
proclaims "Why art thou
cast down, O my soul .
Hope Thou in God praise
Him with hopeful sound."
(Psalm 42). Sure, there are
reasons for pessimism. Fright-
ening are some of the evils of
our day; the brutality of
wicked leaders; the terror in
the eyes of little children dying
of starvation these cast a
dark and bleak shadow over
our minds. Bui we must not
overlook the heroic heights to
which man has risen in the
past and will rise again. There
is a Book-" Dying We live" in
which some final message of
the martyrs of Na/i Germany
and its terrors are recorded.
While ii records the (raged) ol
human life, ii also records ihe
ultimate optimism of the day
when ihe \icious cruelty of
man will disappear. Here is
part of a letter, written by a
lather to his daughter, while
he was being taken to the infa-
mous Dachau prison for
"Dear Leah, You must be
looking forward to Purim as
eagerly as I do remember
the words of Mordecai and
Esther and the good times
we always used to have on
Purim. Even though we shall
be separated, we shall be cel-
ebrating Purim in our minds
and hearts, until the lime when
we shall be together again."
In my lifetime I certainly
have witnessed the injustices
that prevail; the many young
who died in wars who were
not given a chance to get
married, to make a home, to
grow old, to have children and
grandchildren; the many who
died, and more and more of
the same; the Holocaust, to
make me realize that this
world is not a secure and
happy world.
But when Tuv B'Shevat
comes around, it bids me
"don't give up hope." Instead
do what Abraham did plant a
tree, and hold on to the trying
days, until the fruit will ripen
and the walls of trouble by
which we are surrounded will
break down. Yes, Tuv
B'Shevat summons us to have
courage, to hope and not to
surrender. No wonder we are
an eternal people, for we have
lived by that faith ever since
the day of Abraham and with
Moses kept on singing of a
brighter future "when the
Lord shall be One and His
name shall be One."

Here's some
you need to know
But would
rather not hear.
Certainly, no one wants to hear about death and tunerals People
will discuss lite insurance policies or write up wills but discuss-
ing funeral arrangements is hitting too raw a nerve We don t
blame them
But untortunately. death is inevitable And it makes just as much
sense to plan your tuneral as any other arrangements you might
make In fact, it might even make more sense because planning
your funeral relieves your loved ones from making decisions at a
difficult time
And frankly, planning your funeral now allows you to freeze
funeral costs at today's pnees
We know it's really the last thing you want to do. but please come
in to Gutterman-Warheit and find out more about our Sentinel
Plan for funeral pre
arrangement We've
been serving the
Jewish community
for nearly one hundred
years we understand.
