In Final Days



Allied Jewish Campaign volun-
teers are working at a record-setting
pace over the final four days of the
1985 Campaign. Workers are seeking
to complete their assignments and
contact as many Detroit Jews as possi-
ble before Tuesday's Israeli-style
cabaret celebration at Adat Shalom
Synagogue which will close the Cam-
paign.
Campaign Chairmen Robert Naf-
taly and Stanley Frankel told workers
at this week's telethon events that the
Campaign could raise a record $22.5
million this year and still not meet the
pressing local, national and overseas
needs. They urged volunteers and con-
tributors to make an all-out effort be-
fore Tuesday night's closing event.
The closing celebration at Adat
Shalom begins at 6:30 p.m. with
cocktails followed by an Israeli buffet
dinner. Singer Norma Harpaz, the Ab-
raham Ben-Zeev Trio and the Hora
Aviv folkdance troup will perform.

Robert Naftaly, Dr. Joseph Jacobson holding the Torah, Rabbi A. Irving Schnipper and Precious Legacy organizer Mark Talisman
receive a Prague Torah for Cong. Beth Abraham Hillel Moses.

Precious Legacy Attendance Booms

BY HEIDI PRESS

Local News Editor

11,640 Detroiters
toured the exhibit in
its first two weeks.

"The response has been wonder-
ful" to The Precious Legacy exhibit at
the Detroit Institute of Arts, according
to Janet Landay, assistant curator,
department of education at the DIA.
"Everyone is interested and taken
by it," Mrs. Landay said. "Tickets are
selling fine, but we'd like them to sell
better."
According to Margaret DeGrace,
DIA public relations director, 11,640
persons have seen the exhibit in its
first two weeks. Many tours have been
arranged by Jewish and non-Jewish
groups, with non-Jews making up
most of the visiting audience, Mrs.
Landay added.
The exhibit, on display at the DIA

until May 5, is a 300-piece sample of
Judaica collected by the Nazis during
World War II from the Czech Jews of
Bohemia and Moravia who were de-
ported to the death camps. The Nazis
collected more than 140,000 pieces of
clothing, Jewish ritual and art items,
household goods, musical instruments
and more in their attempt to create a
"museum to an extinct race." Today,
the items are housed in 50 warehouses
and eight synagogues in Prague in the
State Jewish Museum, protected by
the Czech government.
Reaction from the Jewish com-
munity has been positive. Gerrie
Spalter of Oak Park, a secretary at
Cong. Beth Shalom, said the exhibit
gave her an "emotional jolt."
"It was more moving when you
thought about how and why it came to
be. The thing that got me more than
anything was that last picture." Mrs.
Spalter was referring to the piece of

artwork created by a child in the Tere-
zin (Theresienstadt) concentration
camp. The final portion of the exhibit -
deals with items created by the camp
inmates.
