ambivalence about revealing
the nature of their relative's
disease.
For many months, neither
I nor my parents could bring
ourselves to tell even our
closest friends that David suf-
fered from AIDS. We were
afraid to raise the topic, lest
we become a subject of gossip.
We dreaded the uninformed
or hurtful questions that
would follow. Yet until we
shared with others the reali-
ty of what we faced, they
could not be helpful or
supportive.
My plea to families of AIDS
patients: Communicate. Tell
your friends and family exact-
ly what is happening. Create
a network of people who can
help you in the hard, sad days
that are ahead.
4. One weekend two
months before he died, David
and I drove to Connecticut to
address a group of synagogue
leaders. Talking openly and
honestly about AIDS and our
personal responses brought
me relief and comfort. I no

longer had to hide or explain
away with excuses my in-
ability to focus at work. And
speaking publicly with David
gave me great joy and pride.
He was determined to use
his remaining days to educate
others. To have shared that
experience with him
strengthened our bonds of
love and respect.
My plea: Give AIDS pa-
tients and their families the
opportunity to share their
knowledge and experience
with others, so that their pain
is not in vain. We need pur-
pose in life to make our days
meaningful. Educating
others may be the AIDS pa-
tient's last opportunity to
participate in tikun olam, the
repairing of this imperfect
world.
David's
death
has
strengthened me. I have
learned the value of honesty
and openness, of friendship
and family, of the sanctity of
every moment of human life.
His legacy of life now blesses
every moment of my own.

New Ad Supplement
Aimed At Upscale Jews

ALYSSA GABBAY

Special to The Jewish News

A

Jewish magazine
which will periodical-
ly accompany the
Sunday New York Times
recently bowed to pressure
and changed its name, accor-
ding to the magazine's
publisher, the Mark Weisz
Corporation.
Originally called "A Guide
to Elegant Jewish Living,"
the magazine, which will ap-
pear for the first time as an
insert in a September edition
of the New York Times, is now
called "5748," a reference to
the Jewish calendar year.
A spokesman for the Weisz
Corporation, Ruvane Feder-
man, cited "stirring con-
troversy" as incentive for the
change.
David Coyne, executive dir-
ector of New York's New Jew-
ish Agenda, criticized the
magazine's original name as
contributing to the impres-
sion that all Jews are wealthy.
"This gives the impression
that this is a lifestyle avail-
able to all Jews, and only to
Jews. It could easily feed into
anti-Semitism and miscon-
ceptions about Jews," Coyne
said of the magazine's former
title.
Federman expressed a sim-

ilar sentiment. "We're not in-
terested in screaming that
elegance is that important a
consideration to Jewish living
in any way," he said.
"It's kind of presumptuous,
kind of snotty," he said of the
magazine's former title. "The
name didn't express what we
really wanted express."
5748's first issue will be
devoted to articles on cele-
brating Rosh Hashanah. An
article by Natan Scharansky
as well as a feature article on
Eli Tahari, an Israeli fashion
designer, will also appear.
According to Federman, the
magazine is primarily
directed towards Jews who
have strayed away from their
religion and who would not
ordinarily subscribe to a
Jewish magazine. With 1.7
million Jewish households in
the area and the New York
Times' large Jewish reader-
ship, an insert was seen as an
effective way to reach this
population.
"You don't have to buy it,
you're going to get it for free.
And if you get it for free and
.you're sitting in the den do-
ing the crossword puzzle, or
reading Russell Baker, then
you'll read it," said Feder-
man. "And you'll find out
about Rosh Hashanah."
He described the magazine
as a "glossy, sophisticated,
