SEATTLE (JTA) — A
new program for the care of
the elderly who are still able
to live independently in the
community if they get some
special services, a new adult
day care center of the
Kline-Galland Home, was
announced by the Seattle
Jewish Federation.
The day center provides
transportation to and from
the center for the initial
eight elderly persons par-
ticipating in the new proj-
ect. They receive nutritious
kosher noon-time meals,
with snacks and accommo-
dations for special diets and
special health maintenance
programs.
Service also was being
provided for older adults
in the Jewish community
needing medical, nurs-
ing, social or mental
health services, and resi-
dents discharged from
nursing homes enabled
to return to their own
homes with help from the
new program.
Other features of the
adult day center included
medication reminders, dis-
cussion groups, entertain-
ment programs, beauty par-
lor and barber shop serv-
ices, plus physical, occupa-
tional and speech therapy

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Two teams of young Judaic
scholars are traveling
through Australia and
South Africa to bring the
vibrancy of traditional
Jewish experience to some
2,000 Australian and South
African high school and
college-age Jewish students
in the Counterpoint '80 pro-
gram sponsored by Yeshiva
University.
The Counterpoint pro-
gram, a project of the Rabbi
Isaac Elchanan Theological
Seminary division of corn-
munal services, was in-
itiated in 1974 as an out-
growth of the university's
Torah Leadership Seminar.
The seminar began more
than 20 years ago.
Members of the Coun-
terpoint '80 program
teams are made up of
graduates of the univer-
sity and graduate stu-
dents, • according to
Rabbi Robert Hirt, dean
of the communal services
division. Their visits are
financed by the Jewish
communities they visit.
Hirt said the two groups
provide young men and
women in the cities they are
visiting with "the wide
range of knowledge they
have shared through their
studies at Yeshiva Univer-
sity and in Israel, through
their teaching and counsel-
ing and their many activi-
ties on behalf of the Jewish
community."

You can't drive away the
darkness with sticks or
weapons. The only way is to
light a candle and the dark-
ness will disappear by itself.
Our candle is the Torah.
