22 Friday, December 19, 1986 THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Last week, Detroit's Jewish
communal workers were
forced to — quite literally —
take a stand for their values.
Educator Gerald Bubis, ap-
pearing at the annual Jewish
Welfare Federation member
agencies' Professional Staff.
Institute, led more than 100
participants through an exer-
cise he has presented to
35,000 Jewish persons in 35
countries, including the
USSR.
For this audience, the
- S. 1i'
question "What's ',rev A
About Jewish Communal
Service?" turned into self-
analysis as Bubis got them
out of their chairs and into
corners of the room identified
with different values.
The United Hebrew Schools
auditorium became a busy in-
tersection, with Bubis con-
trolling traffic from the
podium. Participants hurried
from corner to corner, decid-
ing whether "Helping Jews"
or "Helping Humanity" was
personally more important in
making their career decision,
or whether "Jewish Prac-
tices" was more likely to
raise Jewish • grandchildren
than was "Love of God."
What emerged from the
exercise was a picture of
changing Jewish values —
and Bubis' own recipe for a
dynamic Jewish life in
America:
• "If we continue to use
guilt and `gelt' as informing
reasons for being Jewish, it
should be no surprise to find
in a love-oriented society that
(some Jews will say) 'Include
me out.' The `Jewing' process
must be positive."
• "We're nourished by
those who convert to
Judaism. I'm all for inter-
marriage, as long as there's
conversion to Judaism."
• "Don't do a thing in your
house for 'the children'; do
everything for yourselves. If

it's real and authentic, your
children will know it ... As a
young couple, behave
Jewishly because it's the best
way Jews have of being hu-
man."
Director of the School of
Jewish Communal Service at
Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion
in Los Angeles, Bubis has
taught in colleges and uni-
versities across America, be-
coming — as one colleague
described him — "a legend in
our field." - -
He reminded his audience
— among them hospital and
social workers, fund raisers
and agency executives — that
"Our business is not only the
health of Jews, but the
health of Judaism ... In this
job, you're not earning a liv-
ing, you're making a life. If
you work in a Jewish agency,
you make a covenant with
the Jewish past to be a link
with the Jewish present for
the Jewish future."

Detroiter Charged
With War Crimes

Staff Report

Another Detroiter has been
charged with war crimes. Ac-
cording to documents filed by
the U.S. Justice Department's
Office of Special Investiga-
tions, Alfonsas Patalauskas,
76, led a group of Lithuanian
Nazi sympathizers known as
"baltaraisciai." The baltarais-
ciai in 1941 allegedly
marched thousands of Jews
into the Rase forest near
Utena, Lithuania, and killed
them.
"This is not the com-
mencement of a denaturaliza-
tion law suit," explained
Michael Wolf, OSI spokesman
in Washington. OSI inves-
tigator Ronnie L. Edelman
