Contiri✓ ed from preceding page

Sometimes people are reluc- feet. emotiontilly; JIS arranged
tant to call an agency for help. for job training -fpr the woman

In these cases, JIS will act as a
conduit between the caller and
the agency. According to Mrs.
Silver, "The economic middle
class has the idea that social
agencies provide services only
for the poor. They don't realize
that the agencies were set up to
help everyone."
"Take the case of a middle-
class family living in a northern
suburb. The husband was laid
off his his job and the wife had
no employable skills. The family
had no relatives locally, and
things went from bad to worse
as they fell behind on the
mortgage and other bills. One
day, out of desperation, the wife
called us."
A JIS volunteer talked to the
woman and calmed her. To-
gether they decided on a plan of
action to quickly help the fam-
ily. The volunteer called Jewish
Family Service, which arranged
for counseling for the woman
and her husband, food stamps,
and Medicaid for her child.
After the family was back on its

,

.

and her husband. JIS has called
back several, times, and at last
report, both husband and wife
have new jobs and the family is
learning to cope with its situa-
tion.
Sometimes services 'aren't
available, so JIS alerts the
Jewish Welfare Federation
planning department.
Funded by the Max M. Fisher
Jewish Community Foundation
of the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion's United Jewish Charities,
JIS is open Monday through
Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The phone number is 967-HELP
(4357), with -an answering
machine taking calls during off
hours.
"We've made a lot of friends
in the community,"' says Mrs.
Silver, "and if all the 'God bless
yous' that we've received come
true, we'll all be , taken care of
for a long time." ❑

Shcharansky And Wife
To Visit U.S. In May

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Anatoly
Shcharansky and his wife Avital
will visit the United States in
May, it was reported here last
Monday. The date of their visit
was not announced. According
to friends, the couple will meet
with President Reagan at the.
White House.
It will be Shcharansky's first
visit to the U.S. His wife was
there many times during the
nine years he spent in the Soviet
Gulag to mobilize official and
public support for his release.
She met with Reagan and lead-
ing members of congress on
those occasions.
Friends of the couple said the
Shcharansky's have received
threats from the Soviet Union
that even the current trickle of
Jewish emigration would be
halted if they went to the U.S.
and indulged in anti•Soviet
propaganda. But they will not
bow to such blackmail, the
friends said.
Shcharansky was released on
February 11 as part of an East-
West prisoner exchange and
flew to Israel the same, day with
Avital who had gone to West
Germany to meet him.,The cou-
ple spent the past month month
vacationing in northern Israel.
There had been reports'
eports that he
would accompany Prime Minis-
ter Shimon Peres who recently
left on a four-day trip to U.S. ,
But Shcharansky apparently
wants to complete dental work
begun at Hadassah Hospital's
dental clinic before he goes to
U.S. His teeth deteriorated dur-
ing nearly a decade in Soviet.

prisons and labor camps.
The Shcharansky's have been
invited to New York as well as
to Wabhington. Mayor Edward
Koch will be their host. They
plan to tour the U.S. afterwards
to address Soviet Jewry groups
all over the country, friends
said.

Golan Druze
Declare Loyalty
To Syria

Jerusalem (JTA) — The four
Druze , villages on the Golan
Heights were quiet last Sunday
after a noisy mass demonstra-
tion against the Israeli govern-
ment in which one police officer
was injured.
Several thousand Golan
Druze converged on Majdal
Shams, the largest of the vil-
lages, to protest a, police raid on
a local refrigerated warehoUse
where agricultural produce is
stored. The, police confiscated
two tons of apples belonging to
Druze growers who allegely
failed to submit tax returns.
The Druze claim the Israeli
authorities have been harassing
them, especially since last
month when Prime Minister
Shimon Peres visited the ter-
ritory formally annexed by
Israel in 1981. The Golan Druze
say they are citizens of Syria
and loyal to that country. They
refuse to accept Israeli citizen-
ship and, for a long time after
the annexation, would .not ac-
cept Israeli identification cars.
