On Sunday, January 17, over
400 volunteers, young, old and in
between, joined together in a
massive effort at the Hyatt
Hotel, West Palm Beach, which
will long be remembered aa a
landmark for the Palm Beach
County Jewish community. The
excitement ran high as volunteer
after volunteer had their own
personal story to tell as pledges
from $15 to $15,000 were gener-
ously donated from members of
the Jewish community. "I have a
$200 pledge," yells a woman rais-
ing her hand, aa a youth volun-
teer wearing a "Winning Team"
tee shirt, takes a helium filled
balloon and ties it on the back of
her chair. Balloons were given to
volunteers for obtaining pledges
of $100 or more. One man who re-
ceived a $75 pledge on the phone
offered to donate an additional
$25 so he too could have a balloon
tied on his chair. After the first
hour the telephone room was
"filled" with balloons aa the
numbers on the brightly lit tote
board began to move towards the
projected goal.
In a room just down the hall
the scene was somewhat more
subdued, but the excitement waa
just as high. Boxes with signs
| reading "gifts," "no answer,"
"call back," etc., were being filled
with pledge cards brought in
from the telephone room. Youth
volunteers were busily research-

ing wrong numbers. Federation
staff serving aa volunteers for the
day were tallying up the figures
and follow-up thank yous to all
who gave were being prepared
and sorted for immediate mailing
the following day. It was a "win-
ning team effort" a phrase
coined initially by Barbara Shul-
man, General Campaign Chair-
man, to emphasize the spirit and
commitment of the hundreds of
volunteers working in this year's
Jewish Federation-United Jewish
Appeal campaign.
Joining the volunteers were
celebrities from the local media,
including Bill Brooks, General
Manager of WPTV, Channel 5;
John Quigley from Channel 5;
Judy Goodman from Channel 12
and Michael Hyman, Mayor of
West Palm Beach.
The day began at 8:45 a.m. as
the first group of volunteers
entered the training room for a 45
minute training session prior to
their using the phones. It ended
at 9:30 p.m. as the last group of
volunteers was given their Super
Sunday coffee mugs (a gift to
each volunteer) and members of
the committee celebrated a job
well done. A job that really began
six months ago under the dyna-
mic leadership and guidance of
Marilyn and Arnold Lamport, co-
chairmen for the day. Working
with a dedicated and enthusiastic
committee they planned and
developed each aspect of the day.

draft resolution that would be
palatable, or at least acceptable,
to both Syria and the United
States, on the issue of Israel's
| annexation of the Golan Heights.
The latest effort is a working
I paper initiated by Zaire, a mem-
ber of the Council, which calls on
all countries to refrain from acts
helping Israel in its annexation at
the Golan. Zaire, which e-
portedly opposes the Syrian de-
mand for mandatory sanctions
against Israel, also urges mem-
ber-states in its working paper
"to consider applying effective
and concrete measures," to force
Israel to abrogate its annexation.
MEANWHILE, Arab League
members at the UN were sched-
uled to meet here to formulate a
united stand on a resolution con-
cerning the Golan annexation.
The Security Council has been
hearing various speakers de-
nouncing Israel and calling for
action against it.
Ambassador Gaafar Allagany
of Saudi Arabia told the Council
that it must impose sanctions
against Israel, including manda-
tory economic sanctions. He
warned that Israel's annexation
of the Golan poses serious dan-
gers ior peace in the Mideast.

cannot only be measured in the

It is a unique mechanism
through which these constituent

and trends on the security and
status of the Jewish community,
agree upon policies, priorities and

interpreting Israel; advocating
the cause of Soviet Jewry and
Jews in Iran, Syria and Ethiopia;

protecting separation of church
and state, and the fostering of

State Department and the Israel

There were no reports of similar

Letters to the Editor
The Jewish Floridian ofPalm Btt^ch Cqwfty
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I would like to respond to the
recent (January 8) letter which
you published concerning ARZA
because, in my opinion, the auth-
or's facts, viewpoints, and con-
clusions are incorrect. ARZA is
not a group of Reform rabbis;
rather, it is a rapidly growing
worldwide organization of fifty
thousand liberal Jews. Its char-
ter is a matter of public record
and nowhere is there a stated
purpose to "seek to distort the
aspirations and religious obser-
vances of Orthodox Jewry in Is-
I personally joined ARZA sev-
eral years ago to align myself
with other believers in liberal
Judaism who wished to show
their support for the State of Is-
rael. Without the support of Jews
everywhere, I do not honestly be-
lieve the State of Israel can con-
tinue to flourish.
While I concur with the author
that his list of threats to Ameri-
can Jewry includes some of the
major ones, I fail to see why they
are the prime concern of any
Zionist organization, Reform or
otherwise. The Union of Ameri-
can Hebrew Congregations and
Central Conference of American
rabbis have many fine com-
mittees working on these and
other important issues.
The allegation that Reform
rabbis, somehow contribute to,
rather than fight these trends, is
a. norJriLb,e character assassins
turn. The author speaks of "mix-
sacrifice. I could go on, but the
This column is not intended to
teach a lesson in liberal Judaism,
especially when our libraries are
full of excellent reading mater-
ials. I can only pray that,
through education, we Jews can
learn to accent the concept of re-
ligious pluralism both here and
in Eretz Yisroel. At a time when
we ask understanding and toler-
ance from the Christian Muslim
worlds, it is entirely appropriate
for us to make a greater effort to
understand and tolerate one
perform." Although there
are many types of mixed mar-
riages, I presume that he is refer-
ring to interfaith marriages, and
I would like to set the record
straight on this particular matter
as well. Moses married out of our
faith, thousands of years before
Reform rabbis existed, and it is
hardly cricket to try to blame
them for this problem. The fact is
that less than one third of the
present membership in the CCAR
will perform the marriage of a
Jew to a non-Jew. I have spoken
to some of them, read the writ-
ings of others, and I am con-
vinced that this minority who do
so, practice their faith in the sin-
cere belief that what they do pre-
serves rather than destroys
Judaism. Whether I agree with
them or not personally, I have
come to respect them for having
the strength of their convictions.
I, also, agree with the author
that, "at this time in history, tra-
ditional values of Judaism must
now be allowed to reassert them-
selves against the emptiness and
hedonism of contemporary soci-
ety." However, his conclusion
that Orthodoxy is the only ans-
wer is a matter of opinion. Abra-
ham had concubines. The fala-
shas still practice polygamy as
part of their Judaism. We are no
longer a religion of priests. There
is no great Temple or animal
Reform Judaism criticizes Ortho-
dox Jews, is either taken out of
context or is an outright fabrica-
tion. To denigrade the Reform
movement and label it as un-Jew-
ish, as Mr. Bortnick seems to im-
ply, is to say that greater major-
ity of Jews living in the U.S. are
living in sin. The Conservative
and Reform congregations are as

should be welcomed in our midst.
The billions of dollars that have
been raised and the influence of
our fellow Jews on the American
political arena, can not be dis-
missed with platitudes. It would
be the height of folly for the Is-
raeli government to enact a law
that would deprive thousands of
Jews of the world, the right to
become Israeli citizens because
an Orthodox rabbi has not per-
formed a specific service, i.e.
wedding, divorce, conversion,
etc., as Mr. Bortnick seems to
AGED. In keeping with its program of community service, the Village
I Mutual Association of Century Village has made a contribution to the

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The letter that appeared in
your Jan. 8th issue written by
Samuel Bortnick, brings forth
the age old problem of Jewish un-
ity and the lack of it.
Apparently Mr. Bortnick has
not attempted to judge our peo-
ple without prejudice. His at-
tempt to picture the Reform
movement as an evil agency that
will, eventually, destroy Judaism
because they have become active
Zionists in the cause of the State
of Israel. Witness the huge
amounts of money they have
been instrumental in raising for
Israel, and their activities for
Judaism in every field of endeav-
As a former Hebrew School
teacher, I can state, categorical-
ly, that schools conducted by Re-
form Congregations, turn out
students versed in Jewish lore
and a love for Jewish tradition.
Mr. Bortnick's statement that

Timber Ridge Camps
"Almost heaven" that's the
way Timber Ridge Camps are
often described. Nestled in the
Blue Ridge Mountains of West
Virginia, Timber Ridge is one
of the last strongholds of tra-
ditional camping. The at-
mosphere is low keyed, and the
facilities are outstanding! It is
divided into three separate
camps: White Mountain (eight
weeks, ages 6 to 16), Green Bnar
(four weeks, ages 6 to 12) and
Teen Town (four weeks, ages 13
to 16).
The children are treated as
individuals with different levels
of interest and competitive
drives. Those children who are
interested in a heavy athletic
program may fill their days with
basketball, football, soccer,
lacrosse, hardball, softball, etc.
Those not interested in com-
petitive athletics can select from
horseback riding, tennis, riflery,
archery, canoeing, sailing, water
skiing, gymnastics, karate, judo,
etc. They can also participate in
such activities as arts and crafts,
photography, mountain climb-
ing, pioneering and many more.
The local camp representative,
Lorrain Virehup, spends a week
at camp each summer with her
husband, one of the "camp docs."
Lorraine and Art return each
summer to West Palm Beach
more amazed and more impressed
at how well Timber Ridge suc-
ceeds in providing each camper
with a challenging, yet relaxing
and fulfilling camp experience.

popular interpretation is to ex-
plain that the Havdalah candle
represents the intertwining of the
Sabbath and the six days of the
week into one. Each f* exist
without the other. So it is with
our local community and Israel-
Each is dependent on tbe other.
Without a strong partner, sur-
vival by the other is futile.
By giving to our Federation,
by supporting our local Jewish
community, we will become part
of the movement to save and sus-
tain American Jewry. For every
parson who does not participate
b local Jewish hie, there is a
family who belongs to a syna-
gogue, a family who belongs to
the Jewish Community Center, a
student in the Hidrasha Judaica
High School, a student in the
Jewish Community Day School,
a participant in the Jewish
Family and Children's Service, a
donor to the Jewish Home for the
Aged. Singfa* families, and
young people have been involved
in the variety of indaiiiiigfiil
activities under the Federation
umbrella. The Israel Bond orga-
nization is strong and vibrant
However, this is only tempo-
rary. Without our support of our
local community, we will fail to
supply the continuing pool of
leadership needed to sustain our
Jewish future here in America.
Israel cannot exist without a
strong Jewish community in the
United States. But who will train
future leaders? Where will the
funds come from? If not enough
people give, where will cuts be
made? Who will save Soviet
Jewry. Eastern European Jewry,
Iranian Jewry? We are hlroood
with a strong overall world Jew-
ish community. However, the
strongest Jewish community in
the diaspora by far is our own.

The phenomenon of resistance
is one of Sigmund Freud's great-
est discoveries, and is a process
that is in force with most clients
in therapy. From the beginning
of therapy almost every client, in
spite of his cooperativeness and
eagerness to "get better," is
partially "on the defensive."
Thus, the client seems to suffer
simultaneously from a desire to
"get better" and a compulsion to
defend himself against any
change in his life adjustment. He
begins to wonder whether it is
better to suffer the familiar pains
and aches associated with his old
coping methods or to face the
dangerous possibilities of a new
and perhaps better way of hand-
ling himself. He knows that the
fear of change is probably based
on "the unknown. Nevertheless,
the fear is there, the doubt is
there; and they remain for a long

ter's Young Singles have been

will be spending the weekend of
Feb. 13 and 14 at fabulous Dis-
ney World. The approximate cost
of $35 includes transportation

and say, "I'm so used to my
misery do I make a change?
Am I ready? Might I fail? How
will the children respond without
a father?" All of these ration-
alizations make overcoming the
resistance to change that much
more difficult.
When resistance to change is
uncovered in therapy, it is the
therapist's responsibility to help
the client get in touch with his
feelings and needs. In the case of
the unhappy wife, the therapist's
first task would be to try to re-
solve the marital difficulties,
since she has already expressed
reluctance to make a change. If
the situation fails to "get better,"
the therapist works with the wife
in terms of how her feelings and
needs are not being recognized by
her husband. The therapist
continues to support the wife in
recognizing the pain and un-
certainty of making a dramatic
change in her life situation. Yet,
this resistance can be overcome
by the client's getting in touch
with his pain and anguish. Grad-
ually, changes can be made and
conflicts reduced.
