FRIDAY, AUG. 7, 1987

families will precede the Oc-
tober event. On Sept. 8, the
Council will introduce the
families: On Sept. 20, the
Jewish families will host
ethnic family gatherings
which could be a brunch,
lunch, tea or dinner.
A follow-up Family Con-
cerns Conference has been
planned for the spring of
1988.
The short-term goal of the
project is to provide a forum
for the sharing of community
aspirations as well as for the
exchange of world views.
Long-term goals include
creating friendships which
cross cultural and religious
barriersso that the com-
munities can support each
other, Rossen explained.
Aiming to avoid
preaching to the converted,
Rossen said, "We hope to in-
volve people we haven't
reached out to."
The Jewish Community
Council mailed over 3,000 let-
ters to Council members and
other members of the Jewish
community inviting them to
participate, according to
Council Public Relations
Associate Patricia Liss.
"Organized groups and
organized people" within the
black, Hispanic, Arab and
Polish communities have
functioned as liaisons bet-
ween the Council and
members of their com-
munities, Rossen said.
The Council hopes to at-
tract interested members of
other ethnic communities as
well as interested singles.
"We don't want to close the
door," Rossen explained.
Liss admitted to some dif-
ficulty attracting members of
the Polish community. She
attributed this to the visit of
Pope John Paul II, planned
for the two days preceding the
Sept. 20 gathering.
Questionnaires were
mailed to the participants
which asking for the basic in-
formation of name, sex, age,
hobbies, occupation and
education, as well as more
philosophical questions such
as areas of concern within the
community.
"We really want to get
people together who
philosophically work well,"
said Rossen.
Armando and Kathleen
Ojeda and their children from
the Hispanic community will
attend the program. Mr.
Ojeda is a participant of the
Civil Rights Task Force
which has been instrumental
in the creation of the "World
of Difference" project. He
hopes the long-term results
will be a "linkage and a
friendship established with
an active Jewish family who

has concerns with other
ethnic communties."
Ojeda said he became in-
volved with the Council when
Leon Cohan assumed the of-
fice of president in May 1985,
at which time"Cohan reach-
ed out to various segments of
the community."
Viewing the Council's 50
years of organizational suc-
cess as admirable, Ojeda said

The Council hopes
to attract
interested
members of other
ethnic
communities.

that he felt the strong history
also serves an instructive
purpose. "More and more I
see that some of the Hispanic
leaders look to the Jewish
community to learn how to
unify their community . . . so
it can go forward. So we also
can celebrate our 50th at
some point."
