ices. Did you walk out just
feeling hungry? And if so,
hungry for what?
The final number that you
arrive at is nobody else's
business. But keep it anyway.
See what happens to it to-
morrow and the day after
that. You will know that you
have reached the ultimate
when you are just a little bit
short of the infinite.
I am none too original in
this idea. In fact your chil-
dren have been using it on
you for a long time, longer
than you imagine. Children
have antenna and sophisti-
cated data banks that have
incredible label crunching
capabilities. They see beyond
our titles and rationaliza-
tions. The name of Orthodox
isn't too impressive to a
young teen when he or she
sees parents basically un-
moved by the Judaism that
they are living. Reform
sounds empty if a parent
doesn't have much to show
for it. Doing Judaism for the
kids doesn't seem to work
and the numbers prove it.
Our kids are too busy corn-
putating the real figures.
Therefore, to all of my col-
leagues in the Federation
seeking to unite and main-
tain, I think we all have to
go back to work on the basic
one, two and threes of Jewish
life. We must reassess what
moves us, what gives us

strength and motivation to do
more. Obviously we will not
all come to the same conclu-
sions, but an inescapable
truth does arise.
No matter what label we
have transfixed upon our-
selves we do share a collec-
tive unconscious. The story of
our People, its history and
philsophies, its books and re-
sources, are as much a part of
every Jew as they are of any
Jew. This knowledge is the
spring of motivation just as
much as it is the glue that
binds us. Ignorance is the
volatile fuel of intolerance.
Therefore, we as Jews must
look intensely towards what
we share not so much for per-
suasion as cohesion. Every
opportunity to learn about
the Jewish experience as it
was and as it is should be
emphasized. Even for those
Jews convinced that what
was should no longer be, is
there any evil more primitive
than ignorance?
Our local Federation must
be a leader in this field and
come into step with the na-
tional trends of federations,
namely enhanced support for
Jewish education. In the
classroom and without, every
opportunity to advance our
knowledge of ourselves will
bring us that much closer to-
gether. We must all be will-
ing to teach and to learn —
our numbers depend upon it.

With Or Without
Holocaust Center

I read with interest Robert
Roth's article about problems
in the Holocaust Center
("Holocaust Center Must Go
Beyond One Man's Dream,"
Nov. 14). My main interest in
his article was his revelation
of non-existent curriculum
about the Holocaust in public
schools and for the general
public.
There are a few survivors,
who are not associated with
the HMC, who have been in-
volved in educating ... about
/-' the Holocaust. I give lectures
and I exhibit art works deal-
ing with the Holocaust in
public schools, churches,
; organizations, museums and
colleges ... -
About Rabbi Rosenzveig
and the HMC, when I asked
- him to permit me to .display
my art work pertaining to
life and death in the. 'exter-
mination camps, on a tem-
porary basis, his answer was
if I would not donate some of
's my art work to the HMC, he
could not display my
sculptures at all.
I also registered with his
staff as a volunteer lecturer.
So far I did not receive any
calls ... . _
We, the few survivors who
devoted our lives to the cause

Support Helped
Ari Volvovsky

Because of the massive
mailings on behalf of Leonid
(Ari) Volvovsky's treatment
in the prison camp and the
concern for his health, he has
received medical treatment
and is doing better. His job
has been changed and he is
no longer being forced to do
hard labor but instead is
working at a sewing factory,
sitting down and running a
machine. My family and I
truly are grateful for the out-
pouring of support given to
this courageous man.
Now we are asking for the
same help on behalf of Aris'
wife, Mila.
Several weeks ago, when
Eli Weisel visited the Soviet
Union, Mila attempted to
meet with him. Upon leaving
her apartment in Gorky for
the trip to Moscow shw was
attacked by a man and sent
to the hospital suffering a se-
vere concussion. While in the
hospital a man came to visit
her and identified himself as
