immigration law to allow in-

"well-founded fear of persecu-
tion" in the USSR.
"Neither governmental nor
communal budgets can long
withstand the onslaught of so
many emigres," said the
Jewish Week. The editorial
also wondered whether,
"sooner or later, people will
begin to wonder if American
Jews do not want other Jews
to go to Israel, why do they
want American tax dollars to
go there? And if Israel is not
the legitimate homeland for
otherwise stateless Jews, why
bother preserving it as a
Jewish state at all?"
In letters to the editors that
were printed in the Jewish
Week last week, Ben Zion
Leuchter, president of HIAS
(the Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society), and Stephen
Solender, co-executive vice-
president of the UJA-
Federation of New York, urg-
ed that U.S. Jews not become
embroiled in arguments over
the ultimate destination of
Soviet Jewish emigres. In-
stead, they should help as
many Jews leave the USSR as
Leuchter also stated that
Israel's "legitimacy" is in-

JARC welcomes you to hear the stories
of two remarkable women
who have worked tirelessly "on the front lines"
to improve the lives of people with disabilities

When JARC president Michael Feldman first called Janet Marchese to talk
with her about the JARC Humanitarian Award, she didn't have time to talk. "I
have a baby in my arms and I'm on my way to the airport." She was taking the
newborn with Down Syndrome to an adoptive family in Rochester, New York.


Ever notice the child with Down Syndrome featured in a Crest commercial? Or a
young wheelchair user in McDonald's TV advertising?

Emily Perl Kingsley has spent many years "talking to brick walls,

knocking on locked doors and generally pulling my hair out" to impact prejudice
and stereotyping of persons with disabilities in the advertising industry.

Ms. Kingsley co-authored the critically acclaimed autobiographical 1987 CBS
movie, "Kids Like These", starring Tyne Daly and Richard Crenna. A five-time
Emmy Award winner for her work on "Sesame Street", Ms. Kingsley has been
instrumental in the comfortable integration of children with disabilities on the
show. She has made hundreds of lecture and media appearances including
Donahue and NBC Weekend.

"Father, forgive me, for I
knew not what I was doing,"
said a woman at the end of a
five-day workshop in Cincin-
nati on how Catholics' at-
titudes toward Jews are in-
fluenced by anti-Judaic
passages in the Christian
The workshop, which is

Arthur Dewey, theology pro-
fessors at Xavier University
in Cincinnati, is featured in
an article in St. Anthony
a monthly
magazine published by the
Franciscan Friars of St. John
the Baptist Province. The

The article, entitled "Dead-
ly Memories," notes that anti-
Semitism has often been in-
spired by anti-Jewish
passages in the Christian
gospels. "Unless this issue is
addressed," said Sister Ruth,
"the possibility of yet another
Holocaust is very real in-
deed." ❑

Through Janet Marchese's personal network, over 1200 babies with disabilities
have been adopted over the past ten years. A mother of five and part-time
waitress, Marchese works from her home", quietly proving the true meaning of
"Mitzvah Hero."
