because . . . at what other
time has the house been so
clean? When else have we
paid so much money for so lit-
tle food? On most other
nights, the children wear blue
jeans and unlaced sneakers.
Tonight they're wearing real
shoes; they've tied them and
their clothes aren't faded and
torn. And when, oh when,
have the adults ever been
quite so exhausted from
cleaning and carrying and
changing and shopping and
cooking?
Our ancestors were slaves
in Egypt, and on Passover,
gathering with family and
friends, all clean and ex-
hausted and yet exhilarated,
we retell the story of their ex-
odus and give thanks for our

freedom. Despite the luxuries
of suburbia, the conveniences
of 1989 and the tendency
toward assimilation, tonight
is different, and in the frenzy
of our preparations, our devo-
tion to traditions and enac-
ting the ancient ritual of the
Passover seder, we become
humble and thankful and
mindful of who we are and
from where we have come.

In the process, we create for
our children colorful legacy,
one which will conjure up
wonderful memories and
repetitions of our customs in
the future days, when they
become the heads of chaotic
households, frantically and
fastidiously preparing for
Passover. ❑

TV Show On Hitler
Draws Local Criticism

STAFF REPORT

ewish community lead-
ers are upset over a
Kelly and Co. show,
slated for the first day of
Passover, that commemorates
the 100th birthday of Nazi
dictator Adolf Hitler.
As a result, the Jewish
Community Council suggests
that Jewish members do not
attend the show, produced in
Southfield. And The Jewish
News pulled an advertise-
ment for this week's publica-
tion that requested a Jewish
audience for Thursday, the
day it airs on Channel 7.
"We are not saying, 'Hey,
wasn't (Hitler) a great guy,"
said Kelly and Co. producer
Brad Hurtado. "It is a
retrospective of what happen-
ed to the Jewish people."
Kelly and Co., WXYZ's
morning talk show, will host
a former Hitler youth com-
mander and a Holocaust sur-
vivor on Thursday.
Alfons Heck, who wrote two
books about his role in com-
manding over 3,000 Hitler
youths at age 16, will speak
with Auschwitz survivor
Helen Waterford, who also
wrote a book. The duo, each
from San Diego, has appeared
on talk shows throughout the
United States.
"It is inappropriate to
solicit the Jewish community
on the first day of Passover for
a program tied to the 100th
anniversary of the birthday of
Hitler,"
Jewish News
Associate Publisher Arthur
Horwitz said _ . "It is in poor
taste."
Richard
Lobenthal,

j

Midwest regional director for
the Anti-Defamation League,
added he wasn't surprised
that Kelly and Co. would air
such a program on a Jewish
holiday. He said the show's
producers show bias against
Jews.
Jewish Community Council
Executive Director David
Gad-Harf said Heck and
Waterford offer good insight,
but added the timing of the
show is poor.
"It is bringing attention to
Adolf Hilter during Passover
-- a totally inappropriate
time," Gad-Harf said. "We are
not encouraging people to
go." ❑

School Vote On
Shavuot Conflict

The Southfield Board of
Education will decide Tues-
day whether to change the
Southfield High School
graduating ceremonies from
June 8 to June 7.

The Tuesday evening vote
at Eisenhower School is the
result of a protest by some
Jewish residents, led by Rab-
bi David A. Nelson of Con-
gregation Beth Shalom and
his family, that June 8 is Erev
Shavuot and will prevent par-
ticipation by Jewish students
and their families. Rabbi
Nelson's daughter, Reva, and
the family's foreign exchange
student, Inbar Meytsar of
Milan, Italy, would be
affected.

Oak Park High School's
graduation is scheduled for
June 8 at Ford Auditorium.
