Successful at Bar-Ilan
Driver Safety Program
tr,

NEW YORK—A program which
has achieved results in improv-
ing automobile driving behavior
is under way at Bar-Ilan Univer-
sity in Ramat Gan, Israel, Univer-
sity Chancellor Dr. Joseph H.

The computerized p r o g r a m,

istration and funded in part by the
Israel Transport Ministry, is based

To Our Neighbors

We the members of Temple Kol Ami are pleased and proud
to announce that we are now land owners in the West Bloom-

field area.

We would like to take this opportunity to tell you who we
are and what we stand for. Our Temple was founded in 1966
by seven families, and although we are still a young and strug-
gling congregation we are 120 families strong. On this point
of size let us pause. Our by laws clearly state that we may
have no more than 300 families. Temple Kol Ami very strongly
feels that particularly today in an age of too rapidly diminishing
personal identity, that our Temple always retain the member-
to-member and Rabbi-to-member identification and communi-
cation that we now enjoy.

As stated we are now land owners. In the very near
future we will start to plan for the building of Temple Kol Ami
on our site. Here also it is the avowed policy of Temple Kol Ami
that we are concerned structurally with an ADEQUATE facility.
We build our Monuments with Social Action, try to instill in
our children a true understanding of Judaism thru a study of
Torah, a practice of Talmud, and with a moral commitment
to our Fellow Man. We hope our monuments will be those of
spirit, not of bricks and mortar.

A word about our Rabbi. Rabbi Ernst Conrad is in the
truest biblical sense a scholar and a teacher. A religious teacher,
moral teacher, ethics teacher and more to us as congregants
. . . he is quite simply . . . our friend.

Temple Kol - Ami enjoys a good mix of young marrieds
with no children, couples with children of all ages, and those
whose children are grown with families of their own. All temples
have these types of members. Temple Kol Ami wants, needs,
desires, and gets the daring and exuberance of youth, the
steadfastness and dedication of those with children and the
wisdom and experience of our older congregants. We all . . .
at all ages, are not just members we are participants.

Temple Kol Ami is a liberal Reform Temple. Social action
is at the heart. of Judaism and therefore Temple Kol Ami is
proud of its record. Like Avis, we're trying harder.

Do not be misled into thinking we are a grim group.
Nothing could be further from the truth. From the pulpit to the
pews, to our many parties, joy and laughter abound. This
summer for example we will have 3 parties. Non-members
who may wish to know more about us are welcome.

If you are one of the above . . . give us a call. We would
love to have you join us.

TALMUD TORAH of
YOUNG ISRAEL OF OAK-WOODS

Hannah Senesh was born in
Budapest. Growing up in a thor-
oughly assimilated middle class
Jewish family. she emigrated to
Palestine in her teens when she
became aware of anti-Semitism in
Hungary. The first entry in her
diary concerning Zionism, made
in 1938, stated: "Faith is necessary
to a person and it is vital that
he should feel that his life is not
worthless and empty; that he ful-
fills a task. All this, Zionism gives
the realization of Zionism, the only
me. The opposition that I hear
does not deter me. I believe in
solution to the Jewish problem."

Imbued with a keen aware•
ness of the plight of European
Jewry, she became part of a
group of 32 Palestinian Jews
trained as parachutists by the
British Army to work in intelli-
gence behind Nazi lines. The
volunteers were instructed that
their first duty was to acquire
,'and transmit the information
needed by British and American
forces. These young people had
volunteered their services in the
hope of taking part in rescue
operations of Jews trapped in
Europe.

Hannah Senesh was captured by
the Nazis when she returned to
Hungary with the aid of Tito's
partisans after parachuting into
Yugoslavia. A Hungarian peasant
in the village she entered reported
her, Even when captured and fac-
ing torture she refused to disclose
any information. She faced the fir-
ing squad as she faced life — with
her blue eyes open. She refused
