Community Leaders Meet With Begin
Three top leaders from the
Palm Beach County Jewish com-
munity joined over 300 American
Jewish community leaders in
Israel recently for the United
Jewish Appeal Prime Minister's
Mission, launching the thirtieth
anniversary campaign for 1978.
Alan L. Shulman, 1978 Palm
Beach County Campaign chair-
man, H. Irwin Levy, 1978 Ad-
vance Gifts chairman and
Norman J. Schimelman,
executive director of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County participated in this lar-
gest-of-all leadership mission
ever to visit Israel.
DURING THE four-day mis-
sion, a full itinerary of meetings
were held with key government
officials. The group was briefed
by Defense Minister Ezer Weiz-
man, concerning the current
military situation in the Mid-
East. They also attended a
meeting with Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan.
The UJA Federation leaders
spent the third day of the mission
studying the social accomplish-
ments and problems in develop-
ment towns in the Negev. The
leadership group visited both
families and facilities in 5 of the
27 development towns built in
the last 29 years with the aid of
the Jewish Agency. The develop-
ment towns visited, including
Dimona, Ofakim, Arad, Beer-
sheba and Sderot, house many of
the Russian Olim arriving in
Israel since 1970.

the Knesset, Menachem Begin,
Prime Minister of Israel, called
American Jewry the greatest
asset to the people of Israel. He
stressed the need to help solve
the severe housing problems
affecting 45,000 immigrant
families in Israel.
"LETS MAKE a common
effort to solve these problems,"
Begin said. "How can the Jewish
people live with social injustice?
Poverty in our midst is in-
tolerable at a time when we must
be strong."
Earlier in the day, the par-
ticipants joined with children
resuming the school year.
Throughout Israel, over one
million children went back to
school. Begin pointed out that
schools opening for a new year
also means that they must be
guarded by parents and teachers
against terrorist attacks.
"Israel," Begin said, "is the
only country in the world where
school children have to be
guarded on a daily basis."
RESPONDING to Prime Min-
ister Begins challenge that
American Jewry celebrate 30
years of partnership with Israel
by creating a special effort to
overcome social problems, the
UJA Prime Minister's Mission
pledged $23.2 million for the 1978
campaign a 25 percent in-
"In addition to the pledge of
funds," stated Alan Shulman,
"there was a firm commitment to
launch the most dramatic and
successful campaign ever
throughout the United States, in
an effort to demonstrate the
overwhelming support by
American Jewry."

tor Rosen Joins Temple j
Beth El, Boca Raton
When Martin Rosen's public
school teacher noticed that the
10-year-old was possessed of an
unusually fine singing voice, she
took him aside and planted in his
mind the idea that he might some
day want to be a professional
singer. He took her suggestion
seriously, and he is now the
cantor at Boca Raton's Temple
Beth El.
Cantor Rosen was taken in
hand by a mathematics teacher in
the same school who was also a
singing teacher. Through grade
school and high school he became
firm in the conviction that
singing would be his life's work.
His career at Rutgers Univer-
sity in New Jersey was inter-
rupted by the Korean War. He
served 17 months on active
service in Korea. On return to the
United States, he entered the
Cantorial School of the Hebrew
University-Jewish Institute of
Religion in New York City,
graduating from there with the
dpjrree of Bachelor of Sacred
Music. Earlier, he studied at the
Manhattan School of Music.
His First engagement was with
Temple Beth Hillel in North
Hollywood, Calif., after which he
went to Temple Israel in
Jamaica, N.Y. That was followed
by a long contract at Temple
B'nai Abraham Zion in Oak Park,
111., leaving there to join the Boca
Cantor Rosen's fine voice has
led to a considerable number of
distinctions. As a result of being
a finalist in the Metropolitan
Opera auditions in 1966. he was
chosen by the Chicago Lyric
Company to sing there in Verdi's
opera, "Don Carlo." The same
Metropolitan Opera prize
resulted in his singing on the
National Broadcasting Com-
pany's "Artists' Showcase," for
which he sang a number of
operatic arias solo.
Norman T. Mendel is the rabbi
of Temple Beth El. Several
months ago, the congregation of
almost 400 families moved into
its just completed building in
Boca Raton.

St. John to Launch Aleph Bet
Robert St. John, author, lec-
turer and journalist, will officially
inaugurate Temple Beth El's
"Operation Alef-Bet" in a key-
note address following services
on Friday evening, Sept. 30.
St. John's talk will be based on
his book Tongue of the Prophets,
a biography of Eliezar Ben
Yehuda and his one-man crusade
to revive Hebrew from a classical
and biblical language to the
vibrant, modern language in use
ST. JOHN has been "deeply
concerned with the history, cul-
ture and people" of the Middle
East for almost 30 years. He has
a reputation of being an eminent
non-Jewish spokesman for the
Zionist cause.
Included among his list of
credits are 20 timely biographies
and novels. St. John is the only
author to have written bio-
graphies of both David Ben-
Gurion. late prime minister of
Israel, and the late President
Nasser of Egypt. He has also
done a biography of the Israeli
Statesman Abba Eban. and a
novel, The Man Who Played
God, based on the famous Kast-
ner Case.
St. John has broadcast from,
or written about, 88 countries
and has traveled more than 3
million miles as a reporter.
IN SEPTEMBER of 1939, St.
John arrived in Europe as a
foreign correspondent for the
Associated Press and early in
World War II was seriously
wounded by Nazi bullets. In
1948, still as a war corres-
pondent, he went to Palestine to
report what happened when the
UN Partition Plan was put into
effect. He has covered for press,
radio or television all four of
the Arab- Israeli wars.
St. John is the recipient of the
highest award Israel has ever be-
stowed on a non-Jew, the Medal-
lion of Valour. Many people
remember him for his NfiC
broadcast from London at the
height of the Nazi attempt to
destroy that city.
St. John has also reported and
analyzed many news events here
in the United States. One of his
minor claims to fame stems from
ari incident in the roaring 20's. As
the youngest newspaper editor
and publisher in the United
States, he crusaded against Scar-
Face Al Capone in Cicero, 111.,
and as a result was "taken for a
ride" by the gangsters and left
for dead in a ditch by the side of a

CRC Update i
Israel-Mideast Task Force Conference Neanng
Israel Middle East Task Force
Community Relations Council
A complaint which is
frequently heard by workers
seeking funds for United Jewish
Appeal campaigns each year is
that contributors do not hear
from or about the work of the
local Jewish Federation between
campaigns. "The only time you
find me or tell me anything about
what Federation does is at cam-
paign time when you want my
pledge," say many donors. I have
heard this from several of my
friends for many years.
I think that people who feel
this way live "sheltered lives."
All around us there is evidence of
the commendable work per-
formed by constituent agencies of
local Jewish Federations
throughout the country, such as
Jewish Family and Children's
Services, homes for the aging,
homes for the chronically ill.
Jewish community centers, camp
services and many more.
AT THIS time, I wish to
respectfully direct the reader's
attention to an important con-
ference which will take place in
Editor's Corner
this community on Oct. 10, the
contents of this meeting should
be of vital interest to all Jews
who live in Palm Beach County.
This conference will be held under
the auspices of the Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council's
Israel-Mid-East Task Force.
Both the Council and the Task
Force function under the direc-
tion and the facilities of your
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
The purpose of this conclave is
to bring together the many
Jewish organizations which exist
in this county (there are more
than 90), at one time and in one
place, in an attempt to coordinate
the efforts of all such bodies as
they labor within their own
groups on behalf of Israel. The
conference will endeavor to
clarify present day Israel-Mid-
East issues, especially as they
relate to Israel and our own
American government. It will try
to bring out the need of these two
great democracies for each other,
and it will then try to formulate
better ways for each of the par-
ticipating groups to disseminate
such information to their
members, and from time to time
Double Presidential Standard
With the opening of the 32nd session of the General
Assembly next Tuesday, the spotlight of the world is
being focused on our nation. In particular, the Israel-1
haters are out in force.
It was therefore doubly disappointing that President
Carter chose the eve of the occasion to brand Israel's
continuing establishment of new settlements on the West
Bank as "illegal."
Only a month ago, his position was that the settle-
ments are "regrettable," but that he did not see them as a
deterrent to the pursuit of peace.
Why has he suddenly changed his tack?
The new Carter position may not be sufficiently sig-
nificant to alter overnight his 17-point decline in
popularity according to a national public opinion poll last
week. But it should certainly do so among the Arabs, who
have been expressing increasing disappointment with the
Carter administration's liberal Israeli policy.
Meanwhile, Carter has offered no similar shootings
from the hip about the Palestine Liberation
Organization's reaffirmation the other week of its
determination to destroy Israel.
It is this sort of Carter double standard that will
make the Israel-haters' job easier when the UN gets going
for its new season's performance.
Discussing his 17-point decline in popularity the
other day, the President blamed it on unemployment,
inflation, the anger of the Black community one can
go on and on.
Now we give him another reason.
Passion Play Changes
If it is true, then it is good news that the Passion Play
due for Oberammergau in 1980 will have gone through
some judicious editing. All one has to do is to have seen
this performance just once in order to understand, first-
hand, the root source of anti-Semitism in Europe these
last 2,000 years. It is a hope devoutly to be consummated.
Frankly, we doubt that it will.

An Invitation To An
Encounter With Jewish History
Dear Friends,
For the first time in the history of Palm Beach County our
community is joining together to send a major fact-finding
mission to Israel. We cordially invite you to join us on our
"Encounter With Jewish History," Nov. M-28.
During this very special "mission" you will see and touch
the people of Israel. We will cover every corner of the country.
You will meet and speak with the young Israeli soldiers, boys
and girls who manage to survive and who with valor, continue to
defend their country. You will visit homes for the elderly, where
the aged have at long last found a home, some purpose and
peace in their lives. You will be briefed by political and military
leadership, and learn first hand of the conditions under which
the average Israeli lives.
PLANS ARE now being formulated for the Palm Beach
County Jewish community to "adopt" a settlement town in
Israel. This will be a moral and emotional commitment rather
than an economic one. During our mission we will visit this
"special" community and bring to them a token of our hopes
and dreams for their future and the total state of Israel.
Because this is an unprecedented event in the history of our
community and Israel, we have chosen to record this mission on
film for local and national distribution.
The cost of the mission is $1,295 per person (subjeU to
change), which includes airfare, accomodations and two meals
per day. We will depart Monday, Nov. 15, from West Palm
Beach International Airport.
PRIOR TO leaving on the mission we will hold several
seminars to help give us a better understanding of our
"Encounter with Jewish History."
The forthcoming year will be a time of testing and tran-
sition for Israel's people. For us, therefore, there is much to
If arn, many new leaders to meet and new issues to confront. We
must be ready to grow with them. The mission will be a time for
great celebration, a time for patient understanding and a time
for you to be with your people.
Come join us on this extraordinary experience of a
lifetimeThis Year in Jerusalem.

Succot and Our Environment-
Temple Beth El
West Palm Beach
One of the overriding concerns
of our society is with the conser-
vation of our natural resources.
Not only do we live in a time
when we Americans have become
anxious to preserve the land
around us in its natural state, but
we have become particularly
aware of the fact that many of the
things which we took for granted.
in the past are limited and that if
we are to preserve the quality of
life to which we have become ac-
customed these must be con-
This awareness of conservation
extends beyond our knowledge
that materials such as wood, coal,
oil and iron and aluminum ores
are limited. In recent years, we
have come to acknowledge that
the very air we breathe and the
water which we drink is limited,
and cannot be subjected to
pollution without our paying an
enormous price.
THIS IS a novel experience for
the people of the North American
continent. The extremely rich en-
dowment of natural resources
and wide open spaces of our con-
tinent has allowed us the luxury
of not thinking about such limits
in the past. However, ours has
been a most unique experience.
Elsewhere in the world through-
out history, human beings have
had constantly to ration their
resources and be constantly
aware of their limited supply
because their areas were not as
well endowed as North America.
While encouraging a
heightened appreciation of the
value of water is a new thing in
our society, a number of
ceremonies connected with the
festival of Succot make it clear
that our ancestors were well
aware of the preciousness of this
During the eighth day of
Succot (which most scholars
acknowledge was an independent
holiday in ancient times, and
which we still call Shemini At-
zeretl. we have a special prayer
for rain incorporated in our syna-
gogue service.
similarly see an outpouring ot
rain from the windows of heaven
which woudl be opened.
THE CONCEPT of pouring
out water is one that was preva-
lent among all peoples of the
ancient Middle East and is
alluded to in the Book of I
Samuel 7.6 and II Samuel 23.16
as an ancient prophetic practice.
By the time of the Talmud, it had
come to be formalized as part of
the temple ritual.
While Jews continued to say
HAAZINUMoses bade farewell in a lofty and noble
poem. He called upon heaven and earth as witnesses to
Israel's acceptance of the Covenant with God. And Moses
said: "Remember the days of old, Think back to the years
of long ago; Ask you father and he will tell you, Ask your
elders and they will tell you.When the Most High gave the
nations their inheritance, He took for Himself the people
of Israel, Jacob for His very own share. He found him in a
desert land. He protected him and cared for him as an
eagle gently wakes its young to teach them how to fly,
Spreading its wings to catch them when they tire, So did
the Lord watch over him and lead him through the desert
and fire."
On that very same day, the Lord spoke to Moses:
"Moses, my son, ascend the Mountain of Nebo which
overlooks Canaan. There you will go to your eternal rest.
For though you will see the land which I promised to
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, you yourself will never enter
Moses bowed his head before the will of the Lord.
Deuteronomy 32:1-52
?Question Box?
THE REASON for this is to be
found in the natural phenomenon
that the summer in Israel is com-
pletely dry and it is only during
the months from Heshvan
through Xisan (roughly October
through April) that rain falls. If
sufficient rain falls during this
period, there is sufficient water so
that crops may be kept growing
throughout the summer and har-
vested by Succot. If there is
insufficient rain during the
winter months, the harvest
suffers dramatically.
Because Israel is in a geo-
graphically marginal area, there
is no guarantee that there will be
sufficient rain. As a result, the
preciousness of water was con-
stantly in the minds of the an-
cient Israelites and continues to
occupy the thoughts of modern
Another ceremony of this fes-
tival is merely alluded to in our
liturgy and has fallen into com-
plete disuse. This is the simhat
beyt hashoeva. From rabbinic
writings, we know that this
ceremony, which took place on
Shemini Atzeret, was a time of
great rejoicing, when water was
drawn from the wells of Jeru-
salem and poured out as a
libation, with the prayer that the
coming winter months would
Question: Why is it customary
to visit the cemetery during the
month before the Rosh Huhinth
Answer: The answer to this
question generally runs on two
different tracks. According to one
line of thought the visit to the
cemetery is to make the in-
dividual assume a more serious
approach to life. Visiting the
cemetery impresses him with the
fact that a person is limited in his
span of life as he is in his abilities
and powers. It also teaches him
that life is comparatively short
and that there is a greater power
than man who holds the life of
every individual in His hand.
According to another line of
thought the visit to the cemetery
is to ask the deceased to pray for
us from his heavenly abode. In a
time of crisis one seeks every
available means of help. While
his own record may not be suf-
ficient in granting him help, the
virtues of those who have gone
before him in his family or in his
community may come to his aid
by appealing to the Almighty for
his well-being.
Some even inject a third line of
reasoning which states that even
the dead pass through some kind
of judgment and one is therefore
praying for the dead in his visit
to the cemetery.
Question: Why is the shofar
sounded every weekday of the
month before Rosh Haahanah
and then not blown on the very
last day of Rosh Haahanah?
Answer: The shofar is blown
during the month to arouse the
conscience of the people so that
they may be aroused to repent
their wrongdoings before the
High Holy Days.
It is also reminiscent of the
shofar which was blown when
Moses went up to Mount Sinai to
receive the Ten Commandments
which occurred the second time
during this month. He also
appealed to the Almighty for the
forgiveneaa of his people during
this month.
The reason it is not blown on ,
the day before Rosh Hashanah is
to distinguish between the
custom of blowing the shofar
before Rosh Hashanah and the
Biblical requirement to blow it on
the day of Rosh Hashanah. The
former is a custom while the
latter is a Biblical commandment
for another reason. The hesi-
tation of a day separates these
two practices and makes us
aware that they have different
Question: What is the
"Shulchan Aruch?"
Answer: What we commonly
refer to as the. Shulchan Aruch is
the Code of Law put together by
Rabbi Joseph Kara in the 16th
Century. Current volumes of this
work contain glosses and
commentaries by many rabbis
which surround Karo's text in the
printed editions. The reason for
using this name is interesting,
according to various com-
The Midrash, in commenting a
verse in Exodus which states
"And these are the laws which
thou shalt set before them"
(Exodus 21:1) states that the
meaning here is that the "laws
shall be arranged in a proper
order Tike a table which is set"
(Mehilta) The expression "a
table which is set" is the Hebrew
term Shulchan Aruch.
This means that Jewish laws
should be edited and arranged so
that they can easily be referred to
by the people. Some try to
associate this expression with the
famous verse in the 23rd Psalm
"Thous preparest a table before
me...." In this latter sense it
would be a gesture to instill
confidence in the individual Jew
who has to struggle against
temptation and errors to have a
clear Code of Law before him
which he can follow in trust
Raahi defines the term as
meaning that the laws would be
so arranged so as to be a ready
reference "like a table with
everything ready and prepared to
the prayer for rain through all the
thousands of years in which they
lived in northern countries which
were well endowed with water,
they thought of it as a means of
identifying with the conditions of
Jews living in Israel. In our time,
we have come full circle. By
praying for rain and recalling the
libation ceremony, we call to our
own awareness the need to con-
serve water if we are to preserve
the way we live and, by e
sion, the preciousness of
whole environment.
In a sense, this is the esseiv

the parallel is clear. What isn't
clear is "how to help" families

to eliminate fruitless, expensive
expenditures and to cooperate
and compromise on those expen-
ditures which are made.
Behind all of this, lies the
elusive element of happiness. Can
two people learn to manage their
affairs and at the same time
derive a degree of satisfaction
which makes life together better
than life apart? Clearly, some '
long-standing "political" dis- "
putes are unsolvable to such a
degree that a "marital partition"
is the only solution.
FOR OTHER marriages, how-
ever, the counselor must inter-
pret and define just what should
constitute a relatively happy
marital co-existence. Sometimes,
seeing the consequences of a
marital dissolution, the effect on
the children, the grandparents,
the neighbors, relatives, etc., is
sufficient in deterring a contem-
plated divorce and helpful in
leading the couple to competent,
qualified marriage counseling.
This is not unlike the somber
occasion of Armistice Day, where

appreciate the consequences of

At a recent meeting of the
Board of Directors of the Jewish
Family & Children's Service,
Executive Director Stephen
Levitt, A.C.S.W., announced
plans for a new Family Life
Education Group to begin on
Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish
Family & Children's Service's
Central office. West Palm Beach.
The "Parents of Pre-
schoolers" group is a "new
concept in group meetings for the
Palm Beaches," according to
Levitt. Many parent groups
"emphasize a standardized in-
struction approach in helping
parents to cope with the prob-
lems their youngsters face. Our
P.P.S. Group will allow the
parents to select the topics they
would wish the group to focus on,
rather than what a manual or
outline would allow," Levitt em-
nationally recognized psycholo-
gist will lead the group along
with Levitt.
Dr. Mays, a native of the West
Palm Beach area, is a graduate of
Pennsylvania State University,
receiving her Ph.D. there in
clinical psychology. Prior to
returning to West Palir. Beach
last year, Dr. Mays conducted a
clinical practice in Baltimore,
Md. Additionally, she was an in-
structor in medical psychology at
the University of Maryland
Medical School for four years.
She has authored eight pub-
lications on the subject of adoles-
cent and child management tech-
Participating in the final seg-
ment of this five-session group
series will be Dr. A vie Waxman,
executive director of the Jewish
Community Day School of the
Palm Beaches.
A NOMINAL registration fee
will be charged and pre-regis-
tration is urged. Further details
concerning this group may be
had by contacting Stephen Levitt
at the Jewish Family & Chil-
dren's Service's offices. The
deadline for registration will be
Oct. 10.
