Democrats Campaign
With Jews In Mind

Not all Sinai doctors are Jewish. But
they've all got seychel, and they know
how to treat you like a mensch.

It's not easy to join the Sinai Medical
Staff. Applicants have to complete an
accredited residency program in a med-
ical specialty. They're expected to be cer-
tified by the national examining board in
that specialty. Their credentials are scru-
tinized by other physicians in their own
and related fields before they are rec-
ommended for appointment by the Board
of Trustees.

More than 300 members of Sinai's
Medical Staff are on the faculty of the
medical schools at Wayne State Univer-
sity or the University of Michigan or the
dental school at the University of Detroit.
We at Sinai get a lot of naches from
our medical staff. If your doctor is not a
member of the Sinai Hospital medical
staff, ask yourself one question—and ask
your doctor, too: WHY NOT?
If you don't have a doctor, or are look-
ing for a specialist, call our Physician
Referral Service. We'll be happy to make
a shidduch.


Michigan's Only Jewish Hospital

34. FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1988 .

Atlanta (JTA) — The
Democratic National Com-
mittee began its traditional
post-convention meeting with
the sound of the shofar,
perhaps an effort by Demo-
cratic presidential candidate
Michael Dukakis and his vice
presidential running mate,
Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, to court
Jewish voters.
Rabbi Juda Mintz of Atlan-
ta's B'nai Torah Synagogue,
sounded the shofar as he
opened the meeting with an
invocation in which he prayed
for the success of a Dukakis
administration. In what is ex-
pected to be a close race with
Republican presidential can-
didate George Bush, Jewish
voters in such key states as
New York, California, Illinois,
Florida, New Jersey and
Pennsylvania will likely be
courted by Dukakis.
Although Dukakis emerged
from the convention with the
support of the Rev. Jesse
Jackson, many political ex-

perts, have said this display of
unity could hurt Dukakis in
the Jewish community and
among other voters concerned
about Jackson's positions.
A potential problem for
Dukakis was defused when
Jackson supporters withdrew
an amendment to the Middle
East section of the party plat-
form that would have sup-
ported Palestinian self-
Jackson also omitted from
his unity speech prepared
remarks calling for Palestin-
ian self-determination,
although he did urge support
of self-determination in
general. Advisers convinced
Jackson that direct references
to the Palestinians would do
him more harm than good.
Jewish Republicans already
have demonstrated their plan
to hit hard on the Jackson in-
volvement, and the GOP, in
general, is expected to point
up Jackson's role.
