under the military junta. He is
currently investigating the work
being done to help the Jewish
children there, some of whom
were kidnapped and have not yet
been found.
The newest WSU Hillel em-
ployee has also been contacting
Jewish students who are not
familiar with Hillel's services on
campus, finding out what types of
programming they would like to
see at Hillel. Initial responses, he
said, have included requests that
the lounge remain open some
evenings for WSU's part-time
students and organizing events
that will enable unaffiliated stu-
dents to celebrate the Jewish
holidays together.
In planning these programs,
Oppenheimer draws from his past
experiences, using them as
guidelines. "My own experiences
both as an undergraduate and
graduate student have convinced
me of the importance of having
_some contact with the Jewish
community, without having to
identify with any particular reli-
gious or political group," he said
While in Israel in 1979, he
worked at Hebrew University in
Jerusalem with Jewish commu-
nity work students from Europe
and also spent six months on Kib-
butz Yovata near Eilat, working
in the children's house.
"I found that the children raised
in this environment related well
• to one another and to their par-
ents. The adults were able to con-
centrate wholly on their relation-
ships with the children, without
having to worry about the chil-
dren's material needs. These were
taken care of by the kibbutz it-
self," the psychologist said.
Oppenheimer has expressed a
great interest in working with
WSU students and he is looking
forward to making the job of out-
reach worker a successful one.
"At the end of the year," he said,
"I'd like to look back on my work
with Hillel and feel that we've
been able to create opportunities
for a number of Jewish students to
really look at what it means to be
Jewish from a deeper perspec-
tive."
