*To Jewish Community Center:

I wake up in the morning singing because the sun is
out and I'm going to the Center. The sun always
shines when I get to the Center.

At home, I'm alone. At the Center, I am with friends
whom I love and if it is dreary out, the lights are
on and it looks like sunshine.

Even if we just sit in the lobby and people watch,
tell jokes, stories, exchange happy events, or just
shmoos in the Koffee Klatch room, it's comfortable
and bright on rainy days, and its cool when its
hot out. What better place to be?

That's why I look forward to stepping into my second
home away from home.

ust as the Monkees
rock and roll group of
the late 1960s was
formed after a long talent
search, so was the Shining
Lights.
Sponsored by Chicago
songwriter Larry Kaplan, the
group of youngsters age 9-17,
was formed to record songs for
an album he had been work-
ing on for five years.
The album described, by
Kaplan as "pop youth style,"
is festive Jewish holiday
music with a unique contem-
porary sound.
Songs such as Happy Han-
nukah,, Hey, Moshe Boy and
Simcha, Simcha are cheerful
songs that appeal to all ages.
Young children especially like
to sing all with the album.
The album Say Shalom,
was released last September
and has sold more than 3,000
copies, grossing over $10,000.
The group will be in Detroit
at Cong. Beth Abraham
Hillel Moses March 5 at 8
p.m. and March 6 at 12:30
p.m.
Kaplan, 38, took piano
lessons as a kid, was in a rock
group in high school, and has
published a musical which is
used by many high schools.
He began songwriting with
the intention of lessening the
gap of what teens listen to on
the radio and the songs they
sing during_ the Jewish
holidays. His goal was not on-
ly to have his songs aired on

j

religious radio stations, but
also on the popular FM sta-
tions to which teens listen.
This goal was attained when
Chicago's popular radio sta-
tion, WGN, aired without in-
terruption the entire album
Say Shalom this past holiday
season.
"It's created some incredi-
ble friendships among the
children," says Kaplan who
also said he feels he has made
friendships as well. Detroit
was picked to be The Shining
Lights first out-of-state host
because of the support the
group has from Detroiters.
After their concert at Cong.
Beth Abraham Hillel Moses;

"It's created some
incredible
friendships among
the children."

The Shining Lights are off to
Chicago to perform at
Zimriah — a music festival
sponsored by the Chicago
Board of Jewish Education.
The group may record
another album but as Kaplan
says, "because of the tremen-
dous expense of this caliber of
recording there is no plan to
do so in the immediate
future."
As far as concerts and
traveling are concerned,
Kaplan said he feels because
the group is so young exten-
sive touring would not be in
its interest at this time.
