who began the quilt in
February 1987. The first
panel was in memory of Mar-
vin Feldman, Jones' best
friend.
By October of last year, the
quilt included more than
1,900 names; today, it has
some 4,000. Each panel
measures three by six feet,
the standard size of a grave.
Earlier this year, Jones and
several friends decided to
take the quilt around the
country. This is no small pro-
ject considering its weight —
three tons — and its size: It re-
quires more than two football
fields to display.
Israel first saw the quilt
last March in Washington. He
has never forgotten it.
And when he speaks of the
Names Project, it is in a way
some might find surprising.
He speaks in vivid descrip-
tions of the materials — vinyl,
burlap, suede, even a flag and
a shower curtain — used on
the quilt. He describes the
panels almost as living exten-
sions of their namesakes. It
includes everything from se-
quins, baseball jerseys and
military medals to teddy
bears and a blanket that
belonged to a baby girl who
died of AIDS.
Some of the names on the
quilt are familiar: former
assistant to Sen. Joe McCar-
thy, Roy Cohn; designer Willi
Smith; choreographer
Michael Bennett; and actor
Rock Hudson. Most are less
famous.
"It's the humanity," Israel
says, "behind the statistics."
Israel describes the creation
of the quilt as a community
project. Panels have been con-
tributed by friends, family
members and even business
associates of individuals who
have died of AIDS. It is a way
for survivors to work out their
own grief and to honor a lov-
ed one, Israel says.
"By making a panel, people
are saying, 'We are proud of
this person. He is someone
who was loved and who will
be remembered.' "
Israel is not alone in his ef-
forts to pay tribute to those
who died of AIDS. He is join-
ed by David Sobelsohn, who is
planning a service for those
who died of AIDS, and Rick
and Arlene Oppenheim, who
will serve as volunteers for
the Names Project's display
here.
Rick Oppenheim offered to
help with the quilt as soon as
he heard it was coming to
Detroit. A member of the
social and economic justice-
urban affairs subcommittee of
the Jewish Community Coun-
cil, he says he wants to
change the negative way in

some individuals with AIDS
often are treated.
Oppenheim also says he
feels close to the project
because he has a friend dying
of the disease.
Sobelsohn, a member of the
board of trustees and of the
religious services committee
of Congregation T'chiyah, is
planning a July 9 service for
individuals from Michigan
who have died of AIDS. The
service will include a special
recitation of Yizkor and a
candlelighting ceremony.
The guest speaker for the
program will be Benna Kisin,
a bereavement counselor, who
will address the AIDS crisis
from a Jewish perspective.

Israel-Poland
Flights Begun

New York (JTA) — El Al
Israel Airlines has begun a
scheduled non-stop weekly
flight from Tel Aviv to War-
saw. Aviva Lavi, El Al's
spokesperson, said these are
the first ever scheduled El Al
flights to Warsaw. The week-
ly flight leaves Ben-Gurion
Airport to Warsaw every
Tuesday and returns the
same day.
The length of the flight is
three hours and 40 minutes
each way and the fare is $363
round trip.
Poland is the second East
European country to get
scheduled flights by El Al.
The other country is Ruma-
nia, the only East European
country which did not break
diplomatic ties with Israel
after the 1967 Six-Day War.
Poland does not have diplo-
matic ties with the Jewish
State, but last year the two
countries opened low-level
offices.

Arabs Held
In Murder Case

Jerusalem (JTA) — At least
20 Arabs are being held as
suspects in the murder of
Eliahu Cohen, 33, whose
mutilated body was found
Monday morning in the
vineyard of Moshav Shekef, in
the Lachish region.
Gen. Amram Mitzna, Israel
Defense Force commander of
the central sector, said the
murder was most likely
political. But the police have
not ruled out other motives,
though robbery apparently
was not one of them.
Police investigating the
crime said Cohen appears to
have been stabbed first and
then hit in the head with an
iron bar.
