No. 7



by Charlotte L. Levy

Heed ye the sound of the shofar,
The blast that is blown, O my people.

Have you ever wondered to what extent
the haunting and piercing sound of the
shofar compels even the most secular Jew
to wind his or her way to the synagogue or
temple during the High Holidays?


On Rosh Hashanah, the shofar calls us
to a ”spiritual awakening.” It is a
powerful symbol that seems to captivate
the soul, connecting every Jew to his or
her unconscious and primordial past. In
fact, the shofar is one of the oldest
elements of the holiday. The Torah speaks
of Rosh Hashanah as Yom Terurah (the day
of the sounding of the shofar). The
sounding of the shofar is a very ancient
ritual of the Jewish people, and its
origins are shrouded in mystery. There-
fore; it has been a perfect subject for

Sa’adya Gaon (b. 880 8.5.) was one of
the last and most illustrious of the
Gaonim. The Gaonim were the arbiters of
Jewish law in the post-Talmudic era, and
they headed the powerful Babylonian
academies. Sa’adya cited 10 reasons for
the sounding of the shofar on Rosh
Hashanah. His reasons included: the
proclamation of the rule of G—d; a call
for repentance; a reminder of the giving
of the Torah at Sinai; recalling the
destruction of the Temple; and the
ever—awaited sound announcing the
Messianic age. Another explanation
suggests that the sound of the shofar
awakens G-d to our pleas for mercy. Moses
Maimonides (b. 1135 C.E.) understood the
sound of the shofar as a summons to human
beings to become introspective, examine
their deeds and turn to G-d in repentance.

The Rosh Hashanah shofar blowing
consists of combinations of three distinct
sounds: ti:3§e—yah, shi’va-reem_ and
ti’roo-ah. Ti’kee—yah is a sustained
blast with a lift at the end. Shi’va-reem
is three short blasts with a lift at the

Goldreich, and the popular Jewish music
group Reguesh. Tickets for this series
are now on sale.


Debra Dash Moore

On Sunday evening, Nov. 2, at Temple
Adath Israel, the noted author, sociolo—
gist and historian Debra Dash Moore opens
this year’s Forum. Chairman of the

topic on Nov. 2 will be “Jewish Migration
and Community".

Reguesh, the Jewish musical group from
Buenos Aires, Argentina will perform on
Sunday evening, Feb. 1 at the Recital Hall
at U.K. Center for the Arts. This ensem-
ble has performed at song festivals and
folkdance festivals across South America
and Israel and has developed an enthusias-
tic following along the way. Presented in
conjunction with, U.K.’s Latin American
Studies Program, this spirited evening of
entertainment is sure to catch the fancy
of both the young and young—at—heart.

Prize—winning author of Lgath Journe~,

end of each. Ti’roo-ah consists of nine
quick blasts. All three are included
because there is some doubt regarding
which sound is the correct one for the
New Year.

Unless the holiday coincides with
Shabbat, the shofar is blown in the
morning of Rosh Hashanah after the reading
of the Torah and haftorah, and before the
Torah has been put back into the Ark.

The shofar theme continues through the
High Holy Days. On Yom Kippur, the
service concludes with the sounding of the
shofar, emphasizing our hope in ultimate
redemption: ”And in that day, a great
ram’s horn will be sounded; and the
strayed...and the expelled...shall come
and worship the Lord on the holy mount, in
Jerusalem”. [Isaiah 87:13]

Share Your History

Sunday, Nov. 2 will be an historical
day in the Jewish community. In order to
gather materials for our Kentucky Humani—
ties Council grant project "The Jewish
Experience in Kentucky", CKJF Community
Relations Committee co—chairs Marilyn
Moosnick and Charlotte Baer have planned a
”Share Your History" Day at Dhavay Zion
Synagogue between the hours of 10:30 a.m.
and 1:30 p.m.

Bobbi Fried, CKJF researcher for the
grant project, will be available to
receive and record your family’s history
in Central Kentucky. All historical
documents, pictures, civic citations or
awards, old newspaper articles, religious
articles, heirloom clothing and immigra—
tion records are welcome.

All items will be returned to their
owners, and are truly needed to make this
a successful and accurate picture of the
Jewish experience in Central Kentucky.
The documentation will include all those
smaller towns outside Lexington where many
families were originally located.

We are also looking for people who
could give us good oral histories of the
Jewish community.

Turkey’s Jews ~— A General Perspective

Americans know little about Turkish
culture, and American Jews know little
about Turkey’s Jewish communities. Until
the Neve Shalom massacre in Istanbul last
month, this long established diaspora
community had remained tucked away,
unmentioned by the international media.

As we share our sympathies with the
victims of this terrorist attack, it is of
interest to learn more about the history
of the Jewish people in Turkey. The
following is a letter, condensed to fit
our bulletin, from American Jewish Con~
gress President Theodore R. Mann who
recently visited Turkey. His letter,
written to AJC members, is dated August
15, 1986, just prior to the Neve Shalom
killing, and therefore is unbiased by the


Before leaving, I studied the devastat-
ing 1983 Helsinki watch Report on Turkey,

and considered cancelling the trip. If
human rights were so abused in Turkey, and
if our status as guests of the Jewish

community would make it impossible for us
to speak out on behalf of human rights,
perhaps (I thought) it would be better not
to go at all. Fortunately, I then read
the 1986 Helsinki Watch Report, which made
clear that conditions had improved vastly
in the intervening three years. Perfect
they are not, and no one claims otherwise.
But by informing myself of the history of
modern Turkey, it became clear that there
has been a 53-year attempt to modernize,
westernize and democratize that nation,
and in the process there have been many
ups and downs.

Most Americans know very little about
Turkey, either ancient or modern. The
revolution that occurred there 53 years
ago and that in many ways continued
thereafter, produced astonishing results.
Under the leadership of Kemal Ataturk,

Turkey -- whose population is 99% Islamic
-— became a secular state and has remained
such until today. (It is the only secular

state in the Islamic world. Government is
not at all under the control of religion.
Religious groups, on the other hand, are
in certain respects under the control of


government. One should, therefore, not
confuse Turkish secularism with the
American separation principle.)

The Jewish community in Turkey traces
its roots back to 1498, when their ances~
tors were expelled from Spain and Portugal
and given refuge in the Ottoman Empire.
(The Sultan Bayazid II said of the Spanish
King Ferdinand, ”Can you call such a king
wise and intelligent? He is impoverishing
his country and enriching my kingdom.“)
Turkey was a haven of European Jewry in
the second World War, too. Those Jews who
found themselves close to the Turkish
border, or who were carrying Turkish
papers, survived, thanks to the hospitali-
ty of the Turkish government. I don’t
want to overstate it —— the 17th and 18th
centuries were far from pleasant -— but as
one eminent scholar put it: ”If we define
toleration as the absence not of discrimi—
nation, but of persecution, then the
Ottoman record until the late nineteenth
century is excellent.” Certainly, when
compared to the condition of non—Ottoman
European Jewry, Jews have lived relatively
securely in the Ottoman Empire and then in
Turkey for almost 500 years.

Large numbers of Jews emigrated from
Turkey to South and North America and
elsewhre during the turbulent years after
the first world war and before the modern
state of Turkey was created in 1923.
Then, when the state of Israel was created
in 1998, about 98,000 lower— and
lower-middle-class Turkish Jews emigrated
to Israel. Those who remained behind
were, for the most part,
upper—middle-class and well—to-do Jews who
chose to continue to live in Turkey,
mostly in Istanbul. There are today
perhaps €8,000 Jews in Istanbul, 1,500 in
Izmir, and a scattering of Jews in Ankara
and elsewhere in Turkey.

The Istanbul Jewish community is led by
a thief Rabbi and a council of 30 communal
leaders. Apart from the several delight—
ful occasions when we met with them
socially (their hospitality was simply
unforgettable), we spent some hours with
more than a dozen of the 30 members of the
council, and l was truly impressed with
the quality of leadership in a Jewish
community that is so small. These are

Turkey has had relations with Israel
since 1949. It downgraded that relation-
ship in 1980, allegedly as a result of the
steps taken by the Israeli government
under Menachem Begin to annex the Golan
Heights and to apply Israeli law to all of
Jerusalem. while Turkey has been looking
to become deeply imbedded in the western
economies, the fact remains that close to
half of its trade is with middle eastern
countries because Turkey must import most
of its oil. In recent months, the rela-
tionship with Israel at the diplomatic
level has improved. Since both Turkey and
Israel are staunch and militarily strong
allies of the United States in that region
of the world, one may assume that at
other, non—diplomatic, levels, the
relationship between Israel and Turkey is
even stronger.

Turkey’s leadership is deeply concerned
that its reputation in the human rights
field has been wrongly tarnished, and that
this impacts negatively on European and
American political figures, diminishing
its chances of acceptance in the European
Economic Community and of increased
American aid. (Turkey is now the third
largest recipient of foreign aid, behind
Israel and Egypt.) That is probably why
the Turkish Minister of State with whom we
met committed to us, in the presence of
the leadership of the Jewish community and
of the American Ambassador to Turkey, that
Turkey would undertake a major celebration
in 1992 of the 500th anniversary of the
humane reception accorded by the Ottoman
Empire to the Jews expelled from Spain and
Portugal at the height of the Inquisition.
This is regarded as a matter of consider-
able importance to the Turkish Jewish
community and, indeed, could become an
event of considerable importance in the
JeWish world generally. we advised the
Minister of State that the American Jewish
Congress tour program would henceforth
include Turkey. we told him, too, that we
would certainly advise the Jewish

community throughout the United States
and, to the extent possible, the general
community of the substantial improvement
in human rights within Turkey over the
past few years, of the secure life that
Turkish Jews continue to live, of the
improving relationships between Turkey and
Israel, and of the importance that we
place I“ a strong and durable relationship
between the United States and Turkey.



The Role of Israel Bonds

In Israel’s Developmen

Since its founding in 1931, the Israel
Bond Urganization has been an important
source of development capital for Israel,
providing more than $8 billion to help
build every aspect of the nation’s econo-
my. In IVES a record $505 million was
channeled towards Israel’s economic
development by State of Israel Bonds.

Bond proceeds were used to help con—
struct Israel’s National Water Carrier, to
build oil pipelines, and to construct
highways and harbors. Among the many
projects which Bonds have helped complete
in recent years was Maor David, the giant
coal-burning electric power plant at

Every dollar of lsrael Bond money is
channeled to the Development Budget of
Israel’s Finance Ministry. Because the
Finance Ministry is the source of research
and development monies for Israel’s high
technology industries, the Bond Organiza-
tion can be credited with providing
start-up funds for many of the products of
these promising industries of the future.

To help Israel continue its economic
recovery, and provide jobs for Israelis,
its friends are urged to increase their
purchases of Israel Bonds.

Dr. Sol Gordon Initiates

Family Life Education Program

”lell your children the truth,” direct—
ed Dr. Gordon, ”and your’ll keep the lines
of communication open.“ lhis was the
underlying theme of guest speaker Dr. Sol
Gordon in the first annual Sue Friedman
Jewish Family Life Education Program held
on Sept. 80.

His lecture, ”Raising Children Conser-
vatively in a Sexually Permissive Socie-
ty”, drew an exceptionally large audience
and was followed the next day by three
workshops, one for adults and two for

Dr. Gordon, a clinical psychologist,
currently serves as the director of the
lnstitute for Family Research and Educa—
tion at Syracuse University. He is the
recipient of several prestigious profes-
sional awards, has written books on family
topics, and has appeared on network talk

A soft spoken man with a direct, common
sense approach, Dr. Gordon kept his
audience at ease with his relaxed sense of
humor as he discussed sensitive topics.
He covered all aspects of sex education as
well as other issues of import to the
family unit.

His lecture focused on sex education,
what it should and should not encompass.
Sex education should be about socializa-
tion, he maintained, not biology. He
stressed the need to impart a perspective,
a distinction between love and sex, a
sense of what is most important in a
relationship -- love and caring, a sense
of humor, trust and communication. A
parent’s role is to dispel rumors about
sex, answer teenager’s questions, and let
them know about normal urges and phenome-
na, he said. ”We play so many games, we
say such dumb things, it’s no wonder kids
aren’t listening to us.“

He maintained throughout that the
current solutions, public solutions which

use slick, slogan campaigns or the
non-solution favored by many parents, are
not working. ”We don’t have solutions
that make sense,” he said. ”One of the

solutions that makes sense is to communi-
cate. Parents that talk to their kids

about sex, [their kidsl are the ones that
are more responsible."


Sunday morning he put his theories to
practice in several workshops. An adult
discussion session, ”How Can 1 Promote
Self Esteem”, revolved around the general
topic of helping young people gain self
esteem through actiVities and friendships.
His common sense approach dictated the two
”treatments“ he introduced.

Une was the idea of changing course, in
a classroom, and teaching bored students
something which they can excell at,
promoting a feeling of accomplishment.
the other he called ”mitzvah therapy“.
lhis approach has students developing
buddies, getting their minds off their own
problems by doing good deeds for others.

lwo sesSions for teenagers, divided up
by age, were titled ”How Can l lell Hhen
l’m Heally in Love?” lhe only adult in
the room, Dr. Gordon led a discussion
which was relatively uninhibited and
focused in on several topics important to
teens. immature love versus mature love,
interfaith dating and intrafaith dating,
sex, lines guys use -- all were of
interest to the more than 30 teens in
