to get to know their students,
to be examples of caring and
concern for them. "Teachers
at their very best are artists,
artists of the spirit," Syme
said. "They fashion the beau-
ty of the soul of every human
being. There is no grandeur
like success in such a work!'
Nancy Sommerville of Novi
Middle School said after the
institute, "I found today to be
most informative, positive
and enjoyable. I hope I can
come again next year. As a
matter of fact, I am so in-
terested in all that I heard to-
day, that I plan to attend a

Sabbath service some time in
the next several weeks."
"This has been the most in-
sightful view of another
culture and religion I have
ever experienced," said Linda
Toth of Lahser High School in
Bloomfield Hills. I now can
feel a greater sensitivity
towrd my Jewish students
and all things Jewish!'
Ken Cook of Birmingham
Groves High School echoed
Ms. Ibth. "(It) helped me
understand the beliefs and
values of Judaism, especially
the importance of home and
family."

Jewish Educators Write
Curriculum On Peace

New York — In an effort to
help Jewish educators provide
students with an under-
standing of their options in
the nuclear age, two Jewish
organizations — the Coalition
for the Advancement of
Jewish Education (CAJE) and
The Shalom Center — have
collaborated in producing the
curriculum titled "Na'aseh
Shalom: Let Us Make Peace!'
Assisted by a grant from
the Shefa Fund, the guide
was written by CAJE member
Lyn Fine, and edited by fellow
CAJE member Les Bronstein.
Ms. Fine is a Jewish teacher
and social activist who travels
throughout the United States
lecturing on Jewish concerns,
leading workshops on conflict
resolution, and urging action
for peace. Rabbi Bronstein is
assistant rabbi of Temple
Shaaray Tfillah, New York
City.
The guide is divided into
three sections. The first en-

One section
suggests ways to
integrate
awareness of the
dangers of the
nuclear age into
Jewish study.

students to
courages
recognize that conflict is a
normal part of living, and to
examine how they deal with
conflict in their daily lives —
with parents, siblings,
teachers, friends.
The second section suggests
ways to integrate awareness
of the dangers of the nuclear
age into Jewish study, liturgy,
and life cycle ceremonies —
Shabbat, holidays, bar/bat
mitzvah, etc.
The third section presents
"basic nuclear literacy" infor-
mation; answers the most
common questions people
ask; explores the complex
dimensions of this subject for

Jews; seeks guidance in
Jewish tradition, and ex-
perience; and challenges
students to chose and stand
up for their own point of view.
The curriculum was design-
ed primarily for use with
junior high and high school
students, but most of the
lessons may be adapted or
younger children or adults.
The text makes extensive
use of parables and quota-
tions from the Torah,
Midrash, and modern Jewish
philosophers. It also quotes
from the writings of great
Jewish thinkers throughout
history,including leading
scholars of today.

JWB Offers
Scholarships

New York — JWB will
dramatically increase the
amount of scholarship
assistance it will make
available for graduate educa-
tion leading to professional
careers in the Jewish Com-
munity Center field, an-
nounced Edward H. Kaplan,
chairman of the JWB
Scholarship Committee.
Beginning in fall 1989,

period, will be made available
for each graduate student,
including up to $15,000

and up to $15,000 in a

cellent undergraduate aca-
demic records, applicants are
expected to indicate strong
commitment to pursue
careers in the JCC field
following graduation.
The deadline for scholar-
ship applications is Feb. 1 for
