Mr. Wonderful

Continued from preceding page

people who want to create a
good Jewish home but can't
meet Mr. Right.
How desperate are you?
So desperate that you
would be willing to associate
with men whose list of qual-
ifications for a mate start
with body measurements?
So desperate that you are
willing to tell a total stranger
physical statistics over the
phone as if you were a used
car up for sale?
I am not calling for a radi-
cal, Jewish female uprising. I
am not a feminist, I am a
In my travels throughout
Western Europe and the
United States, I was always
happiest when I could meet a
stranger and communicate
ideas about life, lifestyles,
fads, etc. Imagine the educa-
tion I woud have missed had
I rejected friendship from
someone because they were
too fat or too skinny or too
short or too tall.
Jewish women have bigger
things to worry about — our
minds, our emotional and
physical health, our success.
Thin is great. I often dream
of being a size six but I won't
spend every waking hour ob-
sessed with the idea. This is

not love. Nor is it truth or
I think God's idea of the
Jewish woman is not a de-
pressed, desperate female
moping about the planet
searching for that perfect
mate. Indeed, he intended us
to multiply and uphold the
race but with dignity, grace
and intelligence.
Again, I am not trying to
degrade the work- of Jewish
dating services. I am aware
of the number of successful
relationships they have insti-
gated and this is good.
They have their hearts in
the right place and are defi-
nitely worth a try if you have
the chutzpah to use yourself
as a commodity.
But for those of us who are
different, or at least think we
are, we are more sensitive
(something I'm beginning to
be thankful for) and perhaps
more reflective.
I just ask you to remember
the stock you are from and
toughen up. Even that sensi-
tive, spiritually-fulfilling
pygmy may never show up.
And you'll go right on

Canadians Plan To
Fight Hate Group

Thronto (JTA) — Church or-
ganizations and anti-dis-
crimination groups in Cal-
gary, Alberta, recently
formed a coalition to fight a
planned incursion into the
province of Alberta by the
"Aryan Nations," a violence-
prone white supremacist and
anti-Jewish organization. _
"All have experienced a
sense of outrage in our corn-
munity over this issue," said
Harold Joffe, an officer of the
Canadian Jewish Congress
and chairman of Calgary's
Citizens Against Racial and
Religious Discrimination.
Leading Canadian news-
papers have also strongly de-
nounced the group and its
leader, Thrry Long, and urged
that the organization not be
permitted into Alberta. Long,
40, has announced he will set
up a neo-Nazi compound in
the town of Caroline, 120
miles northeast of Calgary.
The Church of the Aryan
Nations is currently based in
Hayden Lake, Idaho, about
100 miles south of the Cana-
dian border. In 1983, 24 of its
members launched a two-year
crime spree that saw them
blaze a trail of death and
destruction through the
American northwest.
They were implicated in the
machinegun murder of Alan
Berg, a Jewish radio talk

show host in Denver, and the
death of several policemen
and informants. They were
also convicted of • robbing
banks and armored cars of up
to $4 million and of torching
a synagogue. The group,
which preaches that "the Jew
is the child of Satan," claims
to be a religious organiza-
tion — the Church of Jesus
Christ-Christian Aryan
In addition to Calgary's
Citizens Against Racial and
Religious Discrimination, the
coalition to fight the Aryan
Nations' incursion into Alber-
ta includes the Canadian
Council of Christians and
Jews, the Calgary Labor
Council, Citizens for Public
Justice, the Committee
Against Racism, the Church
in Society of the United
Church, the University of
Calgary Chaplains and the
Jewish Community Council
of Calgary.
The Coalition is planning a
letter-writing campaign to
alert the public to Long's plan
and a petition to pressure the
Canadian Broadcasting Com-
mission into airing a film call-
ed Aryan Nations by Calgary
film-maker Lawrence
Ryckman. The coalition also
plans a campaign to educate
the public about the organiza-
tion's beliefs.
