BY DAVID LEBENBOM
Special to The Jewish News
At this time of year, when we
reflect upon personal strengths
and weaknesses, failures and
achievements, we should also
examine how we have fulfulled
our commitment, as a people, to
participate fully in the life of the
community in which we live.
One of the rabbis of the Talmud
said: "If a man of learning partici-
pates in public affairs, he gives
stability to the land. But if he sits
at home and says to himself:
What have the affairs of society to

, David Lebenbom is president of the
Jewish Community Council of
Metropolitan Detroit.

I wish my family and friends a
very healthy, happy and prosperous
New Year

do with me? . . . Let my soul dwell
in peace,' he brings about the de-
struction of the world."
Detroit's Jewish community, in
its continued passion for and pur-
suit of just human relations, has
patterned a course of action which
responds to the Talmudic rabbi by
saying, The affairs of society
have everything to do with me."
Through the Jewish Commu-
nity Council of Metropolitan De-
troit, nearly 300 local Jewish
groups and branches of national
organizations give voice to com-
mon goals of a united Jewish
community in a democratic
society.
As America's ally and a bastion
of demo'cracy in the Middle East,
Israel is the focal point of commu-
nity expression through the coun-
cil's Committee on International
Concerns. State Department and
Israeli government officials have
addressed coordinated programs
and Middle East crisis teams have
been established in coordination
with local National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory Coun-
cil affiliated agencies to be ac-
tivated in the event of a confron-
tation involving Israel. These ef-
forts, and ongoing relationships
with the schools, media and clergy
are undertaken to promote good-
will toward Israel and build
American support for Israel.
The activities of the Detroit
Soviet Jewry Committee, another
council arm, perpetuate the
democratic ideal inherent in
Judaism which is incompatible
with totalitarianism of any kinds.
Contacts with legislators on be-
half of refuseniks, the bar/bat
mitzvah twinning program, reg-
ular phone calls to the Soviet
Union and public education on the
plight of Soviet Jews signal year-
round efforts on their behalf.
Representatives- on the Council
Community Relations Committee
and its subcommittees, together
with other Jewish agencies, as
well as organizations in the gen-
eral community, foster civil rights
and equal opportunity for all
Americans.
An instrumental role has been
taken by the JCCouncil in form-
ing a coalition to advocate contin-
ued federal responsibility to meet-
ing the needs of the poor. The
council has also taken an active
role in the Detroit Inter-Ethnic
Council, ensuring contact with
religious, civic and community
leaders.
In addition, council's program
service department may be
utilized by school and community
groups seeking speakers, films
and printed materials on the
Holocaust, Soviet Jewry, Israel,
the Middle East, anti-Semitism
and a variety of other subjects.
Regular television and radio
programming coordinated by the
media committee is geared
toward informing our non-Jewish
neighbors about Jewish customs
and religious beliefs.
The combined efforts of the
council and its member organiza-
tions, which enhance the philan-
thropic values and attitudes ves-
ted in the Jewish community; are
geared towards making met-
ropolitan Detroit, our nation and
the world better places in which to
live.
