"I deal with everything
from poorly trained
teachers to too many lice
and too little flour."
This is how Seymour Eps-
tein described a day, in his
life as a communal worker
in Morocco, where he is
working as an educational
consultant in schools
funded by the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC).
What Epstein encounters
in his daily work is cer-
tainly very different from
what Lynn Hazan, Hillel di-
rector at the University of
Illinois, or Conrad Koller,
budget and planning asso-
ciate of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Dallas come
across.

Yet all three have
something in common:
They all were trained at
Brandeis University and
graduated from the Ben-
jamin S. Hornstein Pro-
gram in Jewish Com-
munal Service.

Although Brandeis Uni-
versity is a nonsectarian
liberal arts university with
high academic ranking
among American institu-
tions of higher education, it
is a university that is
strongly committed to its
Jewish roots. It was the
American Jewish commu-
nity that built this univer-
sity, and it is that commu-
nity that sustains it. Bran-
deis' Jewish roots; and its
commitment to them, are
particularly visible when
scanning the university's
course catalog.
Unlike other similar uni-
versities, this one offers
more than 100 courses in
the field of Judaic studies.

Courses range from "Be-
ginning Hebrew" to "Jewish
Identity in the Modern
World."
In addition, the Univer-
sity offers a graduate course
of study that trains young
women and men who plan to
work within Jewish com-
munities. It is that program
that trained Epstein, Hazan
and Koller, and 200 others.

Though the program is
young, it has established
itself as a forerunner in
this country in the educa-
tion and training of
Jewish community lead-
ers.

Until the Hornstein Pro-
gram was established in
1969, the conventional
route to leadership posts
was through a standard de-
gree in social work. Prof.
Bernard Reisman, director
of the program since its in-
ception, points out that a
graduate degree in social
work at another school does
not concern itself with is-
sues that are particular to a
Jewish communal worker.
Within the Brandeis pro-
gram, issues dealing with
Jewish identity, courses in
Jewish history and thought,
questions concerning the
problems and dilemmas
associated with Isradl. and
Diaspora relations, are part
of the curriculum.
In the 14 years since its
inception, the Hornstein
Program in Jewish Corn-
munal Studies has estab-
lished a solid base of
achievement and won the
respect of the Jewish com-
munity.
Today, its 200 graduates
are holding responsible
positions in Jewish schools,
federations, community

Orange Peeled

JERUSALEM — The
Casali Institute's Dr. Garti,
after being prodded by a
kibutz to find a way to pro-
duce a cheaper though nut-
ritious orange juice substi-
tute, focused on the peel.
The orange . oil of the peel
usually does not mix with
water. Dr. Garti found a
way, and his new emulsifier
is fast becoming a world
famous mixing agent.
