A R 1 REVI

HOLOCAUST CENTERS have become a part of American
Jewish life, with some 15 major institutions now in
operation around the country and a $100 million fund-
raising effort underway for the planned U.S. Holocaust
Memorial in Washington.

OLYMPIC HERO Mitch Gaylord proved you could be Jewish and win the gold. The
American gymnasts were surprise winners, but in general the U.S. dominated the Soviet-
less '84 Games in Los Angeles.

ISSUES
EVENTS

SOVIET JEWRY activists endured their worst year ever
- as emigration came to a virtual stand-still and Anatoly
Shcharansky, after a long hunger strike, suffered another
year of imprisonment. Prospects remain bleak until there
is a thaw in U.S.-USSR relations.

GRENADA was in the news this year when U.S. Marines
landed on the tiny island. Nelson Kohn, a medical stu-
dent from Baltimore, was among those rescued and
evacuated.

PRECIOUS LEGACY, a ma-
jor exhibit of Judaica that
had been captured by the
Nazis, came to the U.S.
for the first time, attracting
record crowds when it
opened at the Smithsonian
Museum in Washington.
