DINNER COMMITTEE IN FORMATION

16

FRIDAY, OCT. 2, 1987

When a Jew moves to
Israel, friends and family
usually throw a going-away
party. When a Flint Jew
makes aliyah, the city throws
in a marching band.
Maxine Kronick, the
former director of special
events for Flint, is to leave for
her new home in Israel on
Monday. On Sept. 21, her
former co-workers in the city
government threw her a bash,
which included a spoof of the
programs she produced for
the city, a celebrity roast at
the hands of local media and
an appearance by the Flint
Central High School mar-
ching band.
Kronick, who will be mov-
ing to 'lel Aviv, said she is con-
sidering two job offers: a posi-
tion on the production team of
the 1989 Maccabiah Games
and a spot in an advertising
agency. Both of her potential
employers know "that my
Hebrew is not outstanding."
She said she intends to learn
the language at an ulpan
while working. Most olim do
not begin working until they
have a comfortable grasp of
Hebrew.
So why, at age 50, did
Kronick decide to pack up for
Israel? "Professionally, in
Flint there is nothing left for
me to do," she answered. "I
was in Chalutzim [a Zionist
youth group] when I was 19.
I'll never be satisfied until I
do it."
The youngest of her four
children is completing high
school this year, she said,
reducing her family obliga-
tions. A daughter is current-

Maxine Kronick: A gutsy move

ly in Israel, attending the
one-year WUJS work-study
program. Kronick is divorced;
her other children will re-
main in the U.S.
Kronick admitted that
aliyah is a "gutsy move. I sold
everything." She plans to
chronicle her absorption into
Israeli life in a video
documentary to be titled,
Follow A Dream. She admit-
ted readily that her saga will
include both "the good and
the bad. I know there are
things I will love, and things
I will not love."
She said she hopes to be
able to contribute her "public
relations skills, people skills
and creativity" in her new
life. Clearly not short on am-
bition, Kronick said her pro-
fessional goal in Israel "is to
be minister of tourism in ten
years." She was at a loss to
say, however, which political
party's tourism minister she
would be.
Undaunted by her scant
knowledge about Israeli
politics, Kronick remains
determined to realize her
dreams. "I want to be an
Israeli and I will do
everything it takes to do
that."

Friedman Series Recalls
Writers Killed By Stalin

The third annual Morris
and Sarah Friedman Lecture
on Yiddish language and
Culture will take place at 3
p.m. Oct. 25 in the LaMed
Auditorium of the United
Hebrew Schools. This year's
program will be dedicated to
the memory of the Soviet-
Yiddish writers who were
killed by Stalin in 1952.
Entitled "Hope Out Of
Ashes," it will be a dramatic
reading with music in both
English and Yiddish of
literary works of several of
the writers. It is presented by
The Golden Peacock, a perfor-
ming troupe of the YIVO In-
stitute of Jewish Research.

Leonard Wolf

The performers are Leonard
Wolf, Suzanne Toren, and
Janet Leuchter.
