thinks of herself a tenacious
and somewhat like a pit-bull
terrier. "Striving to achieve
comes from my background as
a Jew. If not for the support of
the Jewish community
throughout my life, I would not
be the achiever I am today. It is
part of my culture and heritage
to be committed to public serv-
ice and to other people."
Cooper is a founding
member of the National Asso-
ciation of Women Judges,
whose membership now ex-
ceeds 1,000. She is a member of
the Michigan District Judges
Association, the B'nai B'rith
Barristers, and serves on the
faculty of the Michigan Judi-
cial Institute. She's also a
board member of the Jewish
Family Service and HAVEN,
Oakland County's domestic
violence shelter and sexual as-
sault counseling center.
Co-campaign manager
Barry Howard describes her
county-wide election as mas-
sive, both in population to be
reached and physical size. Yet,
he says, "Judge Cooper hand-
led the pressures and tensions
remarkably well. She is de-

detail-oriented, and the best
campaigner I've ever seen."
Now, with the election behind
her, Cooper hopes to devote a
little time to music and con-
certs, and singing in Temple
Emanuel-El's choir.
Each of these judges, per-
sonally and professionally, are
very different women. All have
come to the bench through a
common thread of hard work,
determination and decisive-
ness. However, Judge Gilbert
began her career before the
women's movement became
popular, while Judges Gage
and Cooper made conscious de-
cisions during a time of
heightened awareness that
women could excel in anything
that a man had already
achieved. ❑

Will U.S. - Israel Relations
Cool In Next Two Years?


Washington Correspondent


he last two years of
the Reagan Adminis-
tration, which happen
to coincide with the last two
years of the National Unity
Government, could see a very
real downturn in American-
Israeli relations from the
virtual honeymoon that ex-
isted over most of the past six
There will not be any all-out
confrontation or collision.
The seemingly built-in cush-
ion in the relationship which
has developed over the years
will not permit that. But the
extraordinarily close ties be-
tween Washington and Jeru-
salem which highlighted

most of the first six years of
Ronald Reagan's presidency
are still likely to cool down
In the long term, that may
even prove beneficial since
Israel will now have to work
a little harder to re-establish
its contacts with the Demo-
cratic Party, which is again
back in control of both the
Senate and House of Repre-
sentatives and is poised to
make a major effort to cap-
ture the White House in the
November 1988 elections.
Many Democrats believe that
Israel has largely ignored
them since Reagan and the
Republicans took office.
The major reason for any
temporary decline will stem
largely from the incredible
fallout of the Iran-contra af-
