ing a few weeks ago about
impending layoffs, Apt said
he was informed that no one's
job was secure. He said he
approached Rabbi Yehudah
Bakst of Yeshivah Gedolah, a
long-time friend, and relayed
the unsettling news. Shortly
afterward, he found the Or-
thodox community rallying
on his behalf.
Yisrael Nachlas coordi-
nated an intensive petition
drive which he said gener-
ated over 1,000 signatures in
support of Apt retaining his
full-time position. He said he
brought the signatures to
Sinai , Executive Vice
President Irving Shapiro's
office Monday morning.
Sinai officials have de-
clined to comment on Apt or
the appeal made for retaining
him.
"Eli Apt has been working
at Sinai for 17 years; he's a
ba'al chesed," said Rabbi
Drucker of his Young Israel
of Greenfield congregant.
"Almost all have been
touched by him. He's a very
sweet person and a lot of
good radiates from him."
Drucker indicated that
members of the Orthodox

community may consider
additional efforts in an at-
tempt to return Apt to full-
time status.
"His function is not re-
placeable," Nachlas said of
the Oak Park resident. "He
should not be in the same
classification as an hourly
worker; his function is more
important to Sinai and the
service he does for the com-
munity is incredible."
Apt said Wednesday after-
noon that he is expected to
work eight hours each in pas-
toral and kashrut supervi-
sion.
"Now, I'll have to go look
for a job," said Apt, whose
wife gave birth to their third
child six weeks ago. "If I've
done a good job for 17 years
and patients are satisfied
with me, why are they (cut-
ting me back)?
"This is what I don't
understand. It's a Jewish
hospital and they need
Jewish clergy people," he
added.
Apt said he is touched by
the outpouring of support he
has received, but isn't sure
what else can be done to re-
store his former hours of em-
ployment.
