1,650 Jewish Teachers
At CAJE Meetings

Carrollton, Ga. (JTA) — The
12th annual conference of the
Coalition for Alternatives in
Jewish Education (CAJE) will
be remembered for _ad-
ministrators and teachers
becoming enlightened pupils
at West Georgia College.
The late August conference
attracted more than 1,650
Jewish educators from the
United States, Canada, Israel
and 13 other countries. They
participated in 600 learning
sessions that focused on
Talmud, current events,
Jewish mysticism, computers,
creative arts, teaching
Hebrew and other subjects.
The educators reflected
every shade of the Jewish
theological spectrum, from
Orthodox to secular Jews; and
every level of educator; from
Sunday school teachers to
heads of Jewish studies
departments at major
universities.
Dr. Eliot Spack, national
director of CAJE, professed a
change in the coalition's
direction. Started as a collec-
ting board for alternatives in
Jewish education 12 years
ago, "we are now an active
force in Jewish communities,"
said Spack, "and we have
achieved a higher degree of
prominence; therefore, CAJE
will officially stand for' the
Coalition for the Advance-
ment of Jewish Education as
of Rosh Hashanah.
"We are no longer an alter-
native to the establishment.
In the '70s, we were only a
conference; in the '80s, we
have made major strides to
become a smorgasbord • of
Jewish creativity for our
3,500 members."
Rabbi Maurice Lamm,
president of the National In-
stitute of Jewish Hospices
and professor at Yeshiva
University in New York, join-
ed Rabbi Edwin Friedman of
Bethesda, Md., and Dr. Sol
Gordon, professor emeritus of
child and family studies at
Syracuse University, on an in-
spirational panel, "Our Car-
ing Community." The session
featured several scholars,
teachers and authors who
discussed Jewish attitudes
toward major problems in con-
temporary society — drug and
alcohol addiction, suicide,
teenage sex, child abuse,
single parents, surrogate
mothers, AIDS, aging, pover-
ty and cults.
Detroiter Harlene Ap-
pleman gave several presen-
tations on family life
education.
Evening programs were fill-
ed with music, drama, danc-

ing, arts and crafts, storytell-
ing and other entertainment.
Additional programs included
a pre-conference for high
school students- who want to
become Jewish educators and
an hour-long session on
women's rituals.
CAJE announced that next
year's conference will be held
in Jerusalem.

aching backs.

The New Breed jaguar XJ6

"...world-class handling,
and ride, and refinement,
all in the one chassis."

PERFORMANCE CAR November 1986*

,

The new breed Jaguar XJ6 sedan moves
swiftly and surely.
With unique "pendulum" isolation, its
fully independent suspension tunes out
road imperfections without turning
spongy. It achieves a near perfect balance
of agile handling and supple ride.
Its new double overhead cam six cylin-
der engine, with 24 valves, provides
authoritative response and extraordinary
high speed capabilities. Yet its serenely
silent cabin surrounds the driver and pas-

sengers with the Old World splendor of
supple, fragrant leather and fine wood.
If you'd like to experience all of the
world class qualities of the new XJ6,
please call or visit our showroom. We'll be
happy to arrange a test drive.

ENJOY TOMORROW. BUCKLE UP TODAY.

Terror Pledge
From France

Washington, D.C. — French
Interior Minister Charles
Pasqua pledged to the B'nai
B'rith last week that his
governrment would continue
its protection of the French
Jewish community and con-
tinue its fight against ter-
rorism. His remarks were
made in the context of last
year's wave of Paris street
bombings and fears of
stepped-up revisionist ac-
tivities by French neo-Nazis.
