confront him now with some
matching complaints.
I hope it is not presumptuous of
me to assume that Mr. Upfall
communicates primarily via the
Yiddish language; (this assump-
tion was gained by the editor's
note that the very article was a
translation from the Yiddish).
Therefore, I can readily under-
stand how great was his frustra-
tion in finding that descriptive
vehicle absent. However, I feel
that his reactions may be de-
scribed as somewhat "off base" .. .
Please erase your "hurt", Mr.
Upfall. The omission of Yiddish
was one necessitated by logical
need of communication with the
throngs of visitors who will be
coming to weep, to remember, to
learn and to grow, and are equip-
ped to do so only through the use
of the mother tongue of these
United States of America. "Zeit
Gesundt".

was the closing of the program,
thus denying employment to
nearly 200 handicapped clients,
the board of trustees of JVS reluc-
tantly signed the lease and set
about finding ways to minimize
the impact of these restrictions on
its clients. Indeed, these rules
were not enforced or obeyed until
after New Years, 1985.
Even during the few weeks that
these onerous restrictions were
partially enforced, the retarded
clients of the Jewish Vocational
Service had more contact with the
general community and were
more integrated into the regular
work force than are the clients of
any similar program in Michigan.
The JVS seized the first oppor-
tunity to escape the burden of the
restrictions when Susan Watson
of the Free Press made public the
entire situation. Two days later,
the landlord agreed to suspend
enforcement of the rules. Thus,
JVS succeeded both in retaining
its service program and insuring
that its clients had equal access to
all building services.
It is shocking that The Jewish
News would imply that the JVS
would sanction violations of
human rights, for to do so is to
ignore JVS' long history of advo-
cacy and service to the handi-
capped members of our commu-
nity, a record of which we are
justly proud.

I strongly object to Philip
Slomovitz's "Purely Commen-
tary" of Jan. 25 where he suggests
that passage of the amendment to
the Law of Return "could well lead
to the elimination of the over-
whelming majority of all Jews
from their people's ministrations
and associated services." He also
states, "Any attempt to reject
those who are not Orthodox is
damaging to a nation's existence."
These statements are patently
untrue. The fight to amend the
Law of Return has nothing to do
with the overwhelming majority
of Jews, Orthodox or not, those
who are born of a Jewish mother.
They are universally accepted as
Jews. At issue is who is a convert.
Those who make such statements
are merely attempting to confuse
the issues and pander to the emo-
tions of their secular Jewish con-
stituency .. .

Defending English
At Holocaust Center

The article entitled "Lack of
Yiddish at Holocaust Center,"
which appeared in this column on
Jan. 18, aroused my interest.
I have not yet had the privilege
of visiting the Memorial Center,
but Mr. Upfall's praiseworthy re-
port of his first visit has certainly
enticed me to put that shrine on
my busy agenda in the very near
future. However, it is his princi-
pal complaint which leads me to
