But it was that experience
that provided a turning point.
"We established a bond," he
said. "That's when I knew I
wanted to work with kids."
After returning from Israel,
Brown continued his Hebrew
studies at the Midrasha-
College of Jewish Studies and
decided to create a program in
which he could teach inner-
city children about ethnic
groups different from their
own. Brown said he would
like to share the information
he learned about Israel with
his students, for instance that
Israel is more than fighting
with Palestinians.
To help him in his mission,
another hospital employee
hooked him up with the
religious school at Temple
Beth El where she is a mem-
ber. Educational director
Robert Lask invited him to sit
in several classes and observe.
Then, Lask introduced Brown
to Denise Cohen, religious
school program and project
supervisor. They set up a joint
program in which Brown
spoke to her students about
teaching Hebrew to black
children and she addressed
his students about the Hol-
ocaust and Yom Hashoah.
According to Mrs. Cohen,
their objective in creating a
joint program was to "make
a difference in their (stu-
dents') lives." Ultimately,
Brown and Mrs. Cohen would
like to form a city-wide coun-
cil of teachers to create joint
educational programs for
blacks and Jews — children
and parents — on prejudice,
the South and the Holocaust,
concluding with a "fun"
event.
Brown is anxious to go back
to Israel. He will attend the
Coalition for the Advance-
ment of Jewish Education
(CAJE) conference in Israel in
August. Next year, he'd like to
take some high school stu-
dents to Israel. He said he'd
like to spend a year studying
in the Jewish state, but the
price is prohibitive when one
figures in the cost of bringing
his wife and three children.
Still, Brown has faith. He
hopes the Jewish community
will support him in his mis-
sion to promote understand-
ing between cultures. How-
ever, it was a member of the
black community who is mak-
ing his August trip to the
CAJE conference possible.
Brown has put his dream of
becoming an interpreter tem-
porarily on hold, because, he
said, teaching children is
more important. "If you can
open kids' minds to the world
it will make a better world.
That's how you start to have
peace, by knowing one
another." 0
