Each month in this space,
L'Chayim will look back into issues
of The Jewish News to see what

was happening in the local Jewish
community or in the Diaspora 10,
20 and 40 years ago.

10 YEARS AGO

Two peace accord documents
were signed by President Jimmy
Carter, Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister
Menachem Begin at the Camp
David summit. The accords were
seen as a framework for further

negotiations leading to peace in the
Middle East.
Teacher strikes at the Detroit
area's largest Jewish schools
affected more than 2,200 students.
Hillel Day School, Yeshivath Beth
Yehudah and the United Hebrew
Schools all were involved.

20 YEARS AGO

Israel opened its gates wider
this year to admit refugees from
Soviet-occupied Czechoslovakia,
Jewish and non-Jewish alike.
Michigan State Temple Youth

received the Jewish Community
Council's youth organization award
for the second year in a row.

40 YEARS AGO

The Jewish Agency adopted a
resolution declaring that it would no
longer contribute funds for security,
military or political purposes in
Israel.

Jewish catcher Myron Ginsburg
of the Buffalo Nine in the
International League moved up to
the Detroit Tigers.

Performing
Tzedakah

At the beginning of the story of
the flood, it states that Noah was a
righteous person in his generation.
(Genesis 6:9) Ask each member of
the family to explain what it means
to them to be righteous. Each family
member should discuss one
righteous act that they have
_performed and one which they
could perform during the following
week. The family could then discuss
the definition of tzedakah and find a
way for their family to give tzedakah
each Friday before Shabbat,
discussing together to whom they
wish to give tzedakah.
In Noah's era, the world was
destroyed by a flood due to the
inhuman behavior of people. Jewish
anti-nuclear groups suggest that if a
nuclear war occurs, the world will
be destroyed in a flood of fire.
When the flood ended, God placed
a rainbow in the sky to remind the
world that He would never destroy
the world again. After a nuclear
explosion, one can see the colors of
the rainbow through the fall-out. Do
you see any similarities between the
generation of the flood and our
generation? As you make a
sukkah, it would be appropriate to
discuss peace and talk about how
we can all live together under a
"Sukkat Shalom" — a sukkah of
peace.
Haazinu — Moses says
goodbye to the Jewish community
and discusses a brief history in a
beautiful poem/song. Ask each
member of the family to sing his/her
favorite song after Shabbat dinner.
Ask each family member to share
one big historical event in his/her
life and one big historic event in the
life of the Jewish people.

Director of the Midrasha, Principal Community
Jewish High School of the United Hebrew Schools
