GREATER DETROIT CHAPTER OF HADASSAH,

can study and still look after
a small baby. This is be-
cause the Absorption Minis-
try has not only given me a
scholarship but 'it helps
with the child-care. '

Steve Sherman, a first-
year photography student,
is the son of Robert Sher-
man, the Program Director
of WQXR, New York's noted
classical music radio sta-
tion. Steve Sherman said
"My first professional job
was for the Museum of Mod-
ern Art, when I was Assis-
tant Director of the Summer
Garden Program and put
out press releases with my
photographs. They were
printed in The New York
Post and The Daily News.
At the Alan Art Museum
in Oberlin, I had a one-man
show and had a lot of posit-
ive feedback. I taught my-
self to dd my own process-
ing. Later in New York, I
took my work to a number of
famous photographers.
Each one had the same reac-
tion: they said that the
photos showed talent and
feeling, but that technically
they needed improvement.

This was because I had been
self-taught. _

"After finishing at Ober-
lin. I went to Israel, deter-
mined to learn the technol-
ogy_ of photography at the
Hadassah. Community Col-
lege. It is known as the best
school in Israel. Every
young professional photo-
grapher I have worked with
in Israel has studied there.

"The course is exactly
what I need: It provides a
sound technological base. I
have- found many friends in
the class who help me with
the technical Hebrew, and
since most textbooks are in
English, I help them. It's a
give and take process. The
department is well-
equipped and David Harris,
the director, is one of Is-
rael's leading photo-
graphers."

There are 24 students in
the photography class from
all walks of life. Three
others are from abroad —
from Canada, West Ger-
many and Argentina. The-
rest have been in the coun-
try for ten years or more.

NEW STUDENTS AT THE HADASSAH COMMUNITY COLLEGE ARE
A CROSS SECTION OF THE INGATHERING OF EXILES.

The _key to successful ab-
sorption of immigrants —
other than their own deter-
mination to make it work —
is the facilities available to
train them for thier new
homeland. Students at the
Hadassah Community Col-
lege come from a wide range
of backgrounds, reflecting
the Ingathering of the
Exiles of Israel.
One example of this In-
gathering is . Ilana
Tukachinsky-Lvova, who
has been in Israel for
slightly more than a year.
Religious, with dark black
eyes and a beautiful shy -
smile she tells her story:
"I came from Moscow in
my eighth month of preg-
nancy. I had to leave my
husband behind because he
is waiting for a visa = he
has been waiting since
1979. Fortunately, ,he is
allowed to work. We have a
two-room apartment in an
Absorption Center, and I
leave the baby with a baby-
sitter when I go to my lab-
oratory technician's course
at the College. Israel is a
miracle country, and this is
one of the miracles: that I

TWO NEW COLLEGE COURSES REFLECT
H.I.E.S. STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE

At a special ceremony
marking the opening of the
Fall term of the Hadassah
Community College, Is-
rael's Deputy Minister of
Labor cited the contribu-
tions of Community College
graduates to Israel's indus-
trial technology work force
and his approval of the high
standards it has set.
One reason for this ap-,
praisal is that the school's
courses reflect, as does the
entire Hadassah Israel
Education Service network,
Israel's changing needs. For
example, this term's cur-
riculum includes two new
and innovative courses:,
Practical Engineering in
Ecology and
Environmental Health;
and Broadcast Engineer-
ing.
Because of Israel's rapid
industrialization, there is a
great danger of
environmental pollution. In
addition, the increase in the
number of motor vehicles is
heightening the problem.
The one fresh water re-
source on which the city of
Jerusalem literally de-
pends, the Sea of Gallilee is
also severely threatened.
At present, there are no
professional courses in Is-
. rael for qualified personnel
in this field. The demand for
such professionals will in-
crease as the problem be-
comes more acute. By offer-

cents of every dollar that

are underwritten by dues.

ing this course, the Com-
munity College is contribut-
ing to the ecological well-
being of the entire country.
The Broadcasting Course,
set up by the College with
the Israel Broadcasting
Authority, provides a center
of training for members of
their staff and potential
new employees. The Broad-
casting Authority is re-
novating an area and instal-
ling special equipment in

THE WEEKEND Kallah
is not a workshop, not a
seminar, not a conference
. . . but an addition to our
Hadassah lives.
An exile is recalled as a
period of grief, of despair.
The Jewish people from the
very first exile to Babylonia
in 586 B.C.E. did not de-
spair, but preserved and de-
veloped their heritage in
whatever land they found.
The Talmud is a product of

the Babylonian Academies.
These academies were seats
of learning for the scholars;.
Amoraim, and their disci-
ples who applied the laws of
the Torah and Mishnah to
Jewish life in a land far
from Jerusalem.
Equally important, they
were seats of learning for
the workers and the far-
mers. Two months of the
year, Elul and Adar, they
streamed to the academies.
On one occasion there were
12,000 present! These
people, occupied throughout
the rest of the year, gave up
these two months to concen-
trated study under the di-
rection of famous scholars.
THIS GATHERING WAS
CALLED A KALLAH.
* * *
AND SO we are calling
from the Galut of Michigan
to come to a Weekend Kal-
lah, so that we, like the
Babylonians of old, may
study with distinguished
scholars.
Call Hadassah office:
357-2920 for application.

YAHRZEIT IN ISRAEL

Tahrzeit in Israel' will be
a regular feature of the
Hadassah page beginning
with this month's edition.
This column will list the
names of those whose
Yahrzeits are observed that
month for whom a bene-
factor has endowed a
Yahrzeit to be observed in
perpetuity in the
Synagogue • at the
Hadassah-Hebrew Univer-
sity Medical Center in
Jerusalem. Since this is a
new column and it is Shevat
21 today, we are listing the

Yahrzeits for the months of
both Shevat and Adar.
Until recently, records of
Yahrzeits were sent directly
to Israel and unfortunately
copies were not kept in our
office. Anyone who has sub-
scribed for one-in the past is
requested to call our office
so that we may bring our
local records up to date and
be able to include all the
names in future columns.
You may arrange to have a
loved one memorialized in
Jerusalem by calling the
office. 357-2920.
