Harry Rosenberg Family Endows
Annual CKJ F Forum Program

in Betty’s Memory

The first annual CKJF Forum Program
endowed in memory of Betty Rosenberg will
be Saturday, May 31.

Ihe Forum will begin at 8 p.m. at
Congregation Uhavay Zion with a Havdalah
service led by Rabbi Uriel Smith. Carol
Meyers, biblical archaeologist and a
professor at Duke University, will then
speak on a dig in northern lsrael which
uncovered a fragment of an ark from an
ancient synagogue. ihe evening will
conclude with a reception sponsored by the
Rosenberg family.

Betty Rosenberg will always be remem-
bered for her devotion to her family and
the Jewish community. Mrs. Rosenberg, who
died in 1984, was extremely active in the
Jewish community. She was president of
the LeXington section of the National
Council of Jewish women, president of the
Uhavay (ion Sisterhood, vice president of
Hadassah and chairwoman of the women’s
diVision of the United Jewish Appeal.

As a successful businesswoman, she not
only involved herself in the family
jewelry business, but was also the owner
of lown & Country Insurance Agency and
Ritz Jewelry and Luggage Shop.

CKJF President Gloria Katz stated,
”CKJF is most appreciative of Harry
Rosenberg, his children, Joe, Gloria
Lipson and Joyce Mischner, as well as the
other members of the family, who have made
this annual Elizabeth Rosenberg Memorial
program possible through their endowment
to CKJr.

”This endowment is a pioneering step
for the Central Kentucky Jewish community.
We hope others will choose to assure the
quality of Jewish life in Central Kentucky
through endowment gifts to our federa-

Due to the generosity of the
Rosenbergs, this CKJF Forum program is
being presented free of charge and is open
to the public.







Bob and Judy Baumann Report on

their Visit to a UJA Assisted

Moshav Near the Legendary Site
of Sodom & Semorrah

The directions _to Moshav Ne‘ot
Hakikkar were certainly succinct: Take
the main road to the southern tip of the
Dead Sea. Locate the first fork to the
left (towards Jordan) and follow it to
the end. In the midst of all the
Negev’s rocks the fig trees of Ne‘ot
Hakikkar were unmistakable.

we visited this Moshav to see how the
are utilized.

Joyce Anavy, our guide, was original—
ly from Lebanon and her English had a
soft French accent. She is an elementa-
ry school teacher while her husband, who
has an agricultural degree from Rehovot,
is the farmer in the family.

Ne‘ot Hakikkar is on the southern
floodplain of the Dead Sea. This means
it is on a relatively flat bed of sand —
preferable to most sites in the Negev

Judy Baumann.


which are rocky. Unfortunately the
salty water is only inches below the
sands on most of the Moshav.

Uur UJA money, channeled through the
Rural Settlement Department of the
Jewish Agency, plus previous funds from
the Jewish National Fund (JNF) and
Hadassah paid for the construction of
drainage canals to carry off some of the
salty water and lower the water table.
Each year, as new fields are opened, UJA
also helps pay for the extra water which
is needed to leach enough salt out of
the fields so that crops can grow.

this Moshav is a frontier community
on the 1948 cease—fire line with Jordan!
Before a new field can be opened the
lsrael Defense Forces send in a mine
sweeping unit to egglggg hidden land

Scattered among the fields are fenced
off areas containing so many mines that
they could not be cleared. Several
years ago a 5 year old boy brought his










@glguufl x




father an unusual metal object he found
lying alongside a field -— it was a land
mine. tven the army can’t find all of
them. Children are not allowed into the
fields without a supervising adult.
Ne’ot Hakikkar is 600 feet below sea
level, and, because the summer tempera-

tures can reach 50 degreeS' C, this
Moshav plants vegetables such as egg—
plant, tomatoes and melons for the
winter and early spring markets. They

also have 50 dunam of date palms.

lranian dates were said to be the best
in the world. Years ago Israel smuggled
thousands of date seedlings out of Iran
and over the years the scientists at
Hehovot have improved the breed so that
there is a large market for Israeli
dates. lhey are certainly the largest,
richest, and most tender dates we have
ever eaten!

Ne’ot Hakikkar also tried to raise
winter flowers for the lucrative Europe-
an market several years ago. Unfortu-
nately they are so far from an airport
they could not get the crop to the
continent within the 18 hours necessary
for a saleable commodity. They still
grow some flowers but only for their own

Given the adverse climate in the
Negev growing vegetables is a risky
business. All crops are started between
two layers of plastic. The top layer
above the plant holds in the heat and
prevents frost damage during the cold
desert nights while the bottom layer
(under the drip hose used for irriga—
tion) prevents the precious water from
diffusing out into the sand. The top
layer of plastic must be removed before
the weather becomes too hot causing the
plant to bake and die under the plas—
tic. If the top plastic is removed too
soon a late frost will wipe out the

lhis being a Moshav each family
its own fields. while we were there,
some families were uncovering their
fields while others were debating the
risk of a late frost. Much of a fami-
ly’s yearly income depends upon this and
similar decisions.






Stiff; :

at Hehovot for intensive culture in the
Negev developed black spots and died at

Last year the special tomatoes

Ne’ot Hakikkar. This was in spite of
special irrigation of the soil to remove
salt, drip irrigation, plastic cover—
ings, etc. Though the scientists have
been investigating, the cause is still
unknown and there is concern about
poisoning by trace elements from the
Dead Sea. This is not the first and may

well not be the last crop that died
unexpectedly in this harsh climate.

We found brave and idealistic set—
tlers at Ne’ot Hakikkar. UJA supplies

the start-up capital to erect the
initial buildings and prepare the fields
so they can help achieve their (and our)
dream to make the desert blossom.

Moreover, through our UJA donations
we support the expertise to find new
cultivars and new techniques uniquely
suited to harsh conditions. Our UJA
funds supply these expensive plants and
equipment without charge when they are
newly introduced while the farmers
supply their limited field space, water
and labor. It is a unique partnership
between the Jews in the Diaspora and our
lsraeli brethern on new agricultural
settlements within lsrael’s original

Dear Dean Haer,

Dean William Hallorah sent me the
video-tape of “And 1 Has There,“ which I
viewed a few days ago. I was very im-

pressed with the format of interspersing
interviews of survivors of the Holocaust
with those of members of the United States
Army who had liberated the Nazi camps.
May I extend my compliments to the people
who produced this very excellent film.

Recently 1 saw Claude Lanzmann’s EDQEO’
the 9.5 hour documentary, and found it to
be even more artistic and exemplary than
the critics had led me to believe. "And I
Has There" is also an outstanding documen-
tary, recording events of that terrible
period of history which must be remembered

"And 1 Was There" will be shown to my
class shortly after the spring recess. It
will be added to our growing library of
Holocaust video tapes and will be shown to
all students who take the Holocaust
Literature courses.

Please accept my thanks on behalf of
the Department of Comparative Literature.
Sincerely yours,

Esther K. Ansfield
University of Wisconsin

Editor’s Note: "And 1 Was There", the
documentary on the Holocaust featuring
surVivors and liberators, was produced by
the Community Relations Committee of CKJF
and HLEX—TV in 1984. It has won awards
including the ”Louie“ from Louisville’s
Advertising Club and a silver award in
public relations from the Council of
Jewish Federations.

CKJF has also distributed the film
throughout Kentucky to such places as
Sinking Fork School in Hopkinsville,
Crawford Junior High School in Lexington,
the U.K. Department of History, and to
Sylvia Green’s nephew in Louisville. The
J.C.C. in Newark, Delaware viewed the film
as well.

The Simanovskys, the Russian family who
first settled in Lexington with the help
of CKJF, is now putting down happy and
successful roots in Los Angeles.

Judy and Abe Levine and their daughter,
Beth, saw the Simanovskys during an April
trip to California.

”We are delighted to find they are
doing very well,” Judy said. ”They think
about people in Lexington often and wanted
to be remembered.”

Leonid Simanovsky is working for the
County of Los Angeles as a civil engineer
handling sanitary sewer design, which is
his field of expertise. His wife,
Natalia, has a temporary full-time job as
a civil engineer. They are planning to
buy a condominium.

Their son, Roman, is attending the City

Six young Lexington Jews had the
opportunity to see freed Russian diSSldEnt
Hnatoly Shcharansky after his arrival in

Shcharansky, who was freed from a
Soviet prison in rebruary, spoke April 5
at a rally in Jerusalem sponsored by the
World Union of Jewish Students.

He described his life in Soviet prison
and answered questions from the students.

”His answers were very sharp,” Harriet
Saxe wrote in a letter to her parents,
Stanley and Judy Saxe. ”He has a great
sense of humor and is quite modest.
Physically he is quite small and seems to
still be weak.

”Despite his appearance, he gives the
appearance of being an incredibly strong

Also attending the rally were Harriet’s
brother, Neal, Elaine Cohen, Debbie
Wekstein, Leslie Levy and Adam Joseph.

Shcharansky said quiet diplomacy will
never open the gates for Soviet Jews
unless it is accompanied by public pro—
test. He said that even if negotiations
should begin to renew diplomatic relations
between lsrael and the Soviet Union it is
”very important” that Israel does not curb
actions in support of Russian Jews.

Shcharansky came to the United States
this month for a visit to thank the
American people and their leaders for
their help in obtaining his release.

the United Jewish Appeal pledged
continued support for Project Renewal in
lsrael during an International Conference
on Urban Revitalization held recently in

Project Renewal, which is supported by
the CKJr campaign, is helping support the
rehabilitation of 88 lsraeli neighborhoods
inhabited by about 570,000 Jews.

lhe conference was addressed by lsraeli
Prime Minister Shimon Peres, who said the
government would push to expand Project
Renewal by creating high—technology
enterprises in development towns and
distressed areas. Residents will be
trained to work in these businesses.

continued ...............................



DaVid Levy, minister of construction
and housing, said more neighborhoods would
be added to the project’s roster.

Jerusalem Mayor leddy Kollek sent a
memorandum to the conference in which he
Cited the firm partnership between Jewish
communities around the world and disadvan-
taged lsraeli neighborhoods as one of the
major achievements of Project Renewal.

Kollek also said the project had
improved living conditions and raised the
level of community services, had created
opportunities in education and employment,
had involved neighborhood residents in
controlling their own affairs, and had
encouraged greater political involvement.

Refusenik Family
Receives Books

A family of Jewish retuseniks in the
SoViet Union will be able to study the
lalmud thanks to a professor at the
University of Kentucky and the Central
Kentucky Jewish Federation.

berald Janacek, who is cnairman of the
Department of Russian and tastern Studies
at U.K., received a request for the books
from the Reznikov family, friends in
Moscow who are refuseniks. lhey wanted
two sets of books in English to further

their Jewish studies; lext of the lalmud

Lflishnah) in three volumes and Legends_ oi

the lalmud in five volumes.

Mike daer was able to obtain the books
from Jewish bookstores in Chicago and CKJF
prov1ded the necessary funds, about $60.

”1 suspect they were very hard to come

by in the Soviet Union,“ Susan Janacek
said of the books. ”1 sent them in by a
channel we have,” Mrs. Janacek said. Her

husband is on a three—month sabbatical in
Moscow through June 1.

Hebrew language tapes were also sent to
the Reznikovs, Mrs. Janacek said.

Professor Janacek has been a friend of
Sena Reznikov, his wife, Sulama, and their
three sons for about seven years, Mrs.
Janacek said.

Reznikov, an engineer, became more
interested in the religious aspects of
Judaism when be became a refusenik about
seven years ago, Mrs. Janacek said.

He has had to take a demotion as a
result of applying to leave and fears for
his job, Mrs. Janacek said. His eldest
son is a student in a technological
institute in Moscow. Another son is a
teenager and the third is in elementary
school, Mrs. Janacek said.
