the ADL participants in the
conference. "When officers
are active in collecting this
information, prosecutors
begin to take hate crimes
more seriously — and this
has an impact on judges, and
on policy makers."
According to Lieberman,
the FBI action was only the
latest indication that law en-
forcement officials are
taking a new and hard look
at hate crimes. Several mon-

the ago, the Western Gover-
nors Association passed a
resolution urging leaders to
develop adequate data col-
lection systems for hate
crime reporting. The new
president of the Interna-
tional Association of Chiefs
of Police spoke recently
about the need for "new
leadership" on the issue, the
first time the respected law
enforcement body has
spoken out on hate crimes.

Junkets To Israel
Number A Handful

Lobbyists, congressional
staffers and advocates of all
types are relaxing after the
frenzied pace of the past few
months, and with the season
comes the annual rite of
congressional junketeering.
Legislators are scattered to
the four corners of the globe
— and this year, there is one
curious twist to their travel
Only a handful — three or
four, according to the Israeli
embassy here —are travel-
ing to Israel during the con-
gressional recess, a sharp
decline from recent years.
The visitors this year in-
clude Rep. Steve Gunderson,

R-Wis., Rep. James H.
Bilbray, D-Nev., and Rep.
Larry Smith, whose spirited
defenses of Israel have prob-
ably earned him as big a
constituency in Jerusalem
as he has in Florida. Rep.
Henry Waxman, D-Calif., is
listed as "probable."
But there is no evidence
that Congress is deliberately
shunning Israel. The shift
likely reflects foreign affairs
priorities that have changed
with the dramatic events in
Eastern Europe. Senators
and Congressmen are swar-
ming all over Europe — es-
pecially Germany,. Hungary,
Czechoslovakia and Poland.

Mazon Fund-Raiser
Serves As Example

The contrast was striking:
the ornate hall with the gilt
columns, the elegant place
settings, the 800 fashionably
dressed guests — and the
somber message about the
worldwide problem of hun-
ger. But aside from the ob-

More than 90
percent of the
money raised will
go to the people
who need Mazon's

vious symbolism of last
week's "Dinner without
Dinner" to raise money for
Mazon, there may be a
deeper message to the event.
Hundreds of young Jewish
professionals — a group that
has often been accused of a
glaring apathy to the prob-
lems of the poor, or an inter-
est limited to "Jewish
issues" — initiated and put

together this event; which
raised more than $60,000 for
the hunger-fighting
Because the event was ar-
ranged entirely by vol-
unteers, more than 90 per-
cent of the money raised will
go to the people who need
Mazon's services — a figure
the event's planners intend
as a challenge to the rest of
the Jewish community.
Jonathan Kessler, a
Jewish political activist, was
one of the two primary
organizers of the event; the
other was Nancy Jacobson.
He said, "This generation
doesn't need to be wined and
dined, if a cause and concept
can be presented in a
creative and compelling
way. That's what we learned
from this. These people
reached out to their friends
and convinced them to give
their money and their time.
They made their Rolodexes
sing." 0
