For Mom

Continued from Page 7

five-course meal, the kosher
equivalent of Maxims of
Paris. It is no wonder,
therefore, that whatever the
vagaries of my religious
observance, my taste buds
have remained decidedly
Orthodox.
My mother is also an artist.
Her shawls, tablecloths and
challah covers are a blaze of
individually designed pat-
terns hand-embroidered with
the richest colors. Chagall
himself would have admired
their artistry.
But my "bonding" with my
mother goes way beyond food
and color. Of all her children,
I am by all accounts and her
own, the one most like her —
which may be a mixed bless-
ing, as it has frequently led to
the butting of heads.
But these character traits
were learned at her knee. We
would sit and talk together
for hours. She would tell me
stories of her youth; we would

argue over trivial matters;
and she would share her fami-
ly concerns with me.
For these reasons,• and
although I have lived away
from home now for many
years, my mother can still
pull at my heart strings —
even without being there!
Every charmingly irritating
little old Jewish lady creates
her anew for me; every Yid-
dish accent reminds me of her
voice.
But the line that cuts the
deepest was her statement to
me as I got ready to leave
after my most recent visit:
"Every time you go, it feels as
it did the first time you left."
It is a line brewed of a com-
bination of hurt and love as
only a mother can feel and I,
tinged by my guilt at never
being able to love quite
enough, carry it with me as
an unforgettable echo down
the ages. ❑

FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1989

University of Michigan Pro-
fessor Zvi Gitelman has been
nominated in the 1989 Na-
tional Jewish Book Awards
visual arts category for his
work A Century of Am-
bivalence: The Jews of Russia
and the Soviet Union, 1881 to
the Present.
The awards, which will be
announced May 30, are given
by the JWB Council to
authors of Jewish books of
scholarly and literary ex-
cellence in the United States
and Canada.

The American Arabic and
Jewish Friends in Detroit
postponed until next fall their

May 11 dinner in an effort to
obtain a high-powered politi-
cal speaker for the event.
The group asked some
heavy hitters to work both
sides of the aisle in
Washington. They are look-
ing for someone of Arabic des-
cent to follow last year's
Jewish speaker, Sen. Carl
Levin.
Levin has agreed to search
the Democratic side of Capitol
Hill for the group; Judge
George Bashara and state
GOP Chairman Spencer
Abraham are working the
Republican side.

Israel, Estonia
Sign Exchange

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The Soviet
Baltic republic of Estonia has
signed an agreement with
Israel for an exchange of ex-
perts, beginning next year.
The pact, believed to be the
first of its kind with a Soviet
republic, was announced by
the Estonian first deputy
minister of agriculture, Vello
Lind, as a 12-member Esto-
nian delegation wound up an
official visit to Israel, the first
ever from a Soviet republic.
Lind invited an Israeli
delegation to visit Tallinn,
the Estonian capital, for the
opening of Israeli Culture
Week there next year.
Lind praised Israel's
"remarkable development"
and said this was one of the
most important and in-
teresting of his visits to 28
countries.
