The following profile by
the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion is part of a series on the
people who benefit from the
Allied Jewish Campaign.
Dan Ginis, age 21. A
senior at the University of
Michigan in Ann Arbor, Dan
Ginis likes to challenge
people's thinking. He is, for
example, the editor of Con-
sider, an independent weekly
publication that provides a
forum on many issues. But
most important to Dan is the
way that his own perception
of his Jewish identity has
been challenged — and
heightened — during his
years at college.
The son of Dr. and Mrs.
Morris Ginis of Southfield,
Dan had a traditional Jewish
education, but, like many of
his peers, dropped his Jewish
studies after his bar mitzvah.
He says he didn't feel a need
to be involved in the or-
ganized Jewish community.
At U of M, he learned about
the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foun-
dation from a colleague on
Consider, which Hillel helped
found and co-sponsors. And
through Hillel Foundation,
he says he has been exposed
to "a dynamic Jewish com-
munity." Dan credits director
Michael Brooks with creating
"the type of place that is a
magnet, that brings kids
back to Judaism."
Now planning to spend a
year in Israel after gradua-
tion, Dan hopes to become in-
volved in the Jewish commu-
nity on a professional level
after pursuing master's de-
grees in Jewish communal
service and public adminis-
tration. "The college level is
the most important time to
reach kids," he says. "That's
when they're exploring ideas

and making decisions on
their own."
The agency. B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundations on more
than 400 college campuses
nationally and worldwide
provide a center of Jewish life
for students that includes so-
cial, educational and reli-
gious services. The second
largest student organization
at U of M, Hillel Foundation
sponsors a lecture series with
major cultural figures and
film festivals, in addition to
providing Sabbath services,
kosher meals, religious pro-
gramming and short-term
counseling.
B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tions at campuses in Michi-
gan and elsewhere are among
the national beneficiaries of
the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion's Allied Jewish Cam-
paign.

Israel Must Establish
An Iran-Contra Inquiry

VICTOR BIENSTOCK

Special to The Jewish News

A concerted effort by Wash-
ington officials to portray Is-
rael as the evil genius of the
Reagan Administration's mis-
conceived and mismanaged
scheme to sell arms to Iran and
of the scandalous diversion of
the proceeds to the Nicaraguan
contras is apparently taking
shape in Washington. If
Israeli-American relations are
not to be badly damaged, there
will have to be a firm and com-
prehensive response by Israel.
Attorney General Edwin
Meese 3rd, one of President
Reagan's closest and most
trusted associates, pointed the
finger at Israel when he first
publicly revealed that profits
from the sale of American arms
to Iran had been diverted to the
contras through secret Swiss
bank accounts. He alleged that

representatives of Israel had
put the money in these ac-
counts. The shocked Israeli
government stated flatly that
no Iranian payments for
American arms had passed
through Israeli hands. It de-
nied knowledge of any tie-in
between the delivery of arms to
Iran and support for the con-
tras.
Then, in the final days of
1986, a "leak" of remarkably
wide proportions gave the
media another field day. Tes-
timony by Meese before closed
sessions of the Senate and
House intelligence committees
ascribed fatherhood of the fund
diversion scheme to a senior Is-
raeli official.
Meese, appearing before the
committees in mid-December,
testified, according to congres-
sional sources and Justice De-
partment officials, that Lt. Col.

fired from his National Secu-
