others didn't even say 'Go to
hell.' "
The lack of response was
particularly painful to
Fellman, a two-term presi-
dent of the Omaha Jewish
Federation, co-founder and
past-president of the
Nebraska Jewish Historical
Society and fundraising
chairman for a new educa-
tional wing at the Omaha
JCC.
"I'm not seeing anybody
taking it on as a cause, ex-
cept for some activities here
and there," she said. "It
doesn't mean it's not a prob-
lem, and in view of the major
problems we have in Jewish
life, this may not seem
major. But we feel if we have
one or two Jewish marriages
from an issue of our publica-
tion, and these people have a
happy life and have
children, then it's worth it."
She is philosophical about
the possibility no one will
come forth to underwrite
such a newspaper.
"If a newspaper comes out
of the meeting, fine. If the
meeting only serves as a
clearing house of names and
information, well, that's
okay, because there are
hundreds of thousands of
names out there." She said
she has heard, for example,
there are 12,000 Jewish sin-
gles in Denver and 50,000 in
Chicago, but she can't afford
to print the copies necessary
to reach this populace.
However, she added, she has
heard from people wanting
to contact advertising agen-
cies about the market poten-

tial of a Jewish singles
publication.

She criticized the Jewish
press of America, saying "it
also is not doing a job. Occa-
sionally, the papers will
have an article about Jewish
singles.
"My feeling is, a lot of
these singles will not marry,
and in 15-20 years, we will
see the effects on Jewish
schools, because these sin-
gles are not going to have
families and not going to
have children."

She has heard of several
interstate Jewish marriages
via singles publications.
"There was a Michigan-and-
Alabama marriage, a
Wisconsin-and-San Antonio,
Tex., marriage, even a
Shanghai-and-Puerto Rico
marriage," she said.
"People will write letters.
They are anxious to meet
somebody. They will travel;
they will meet other people;
they go on cruises, for exam-
ple. That's not to say they
are desperate to meet. Some
are very 'into' their careers
and don't start looking until
their 30s." •
Which brought Fellman
back to her publication's —
and the planned meeting's —
original purpose: "to help
Jewish singles meet Jewish
singles for the purpose of
marriage and to combat in-
termarriage," she said.
For information on the
meeting, write Fellman at
P.O. Box 24331, Omaha, NE
68132, or call her at (402)
551-7257.

The Jewish Information
Network, featured under
the headline "Love And
Wisdom By Wire" in The
Jewish News Dec. 29,
1989, is no longer in ser-
vice due to financial
difficulties.
The JIN, founded by
Rabbi Jeffery Rubenstein,
was in operation from
July until the end of Oc-
tober, but was averaging
only four calls per day and
was discontinued.

"It's a disappointment
for us," said Peter
Brennan, vice president of
the New York-based
Telephone Entertainment
Network, which provided
JIN with the equipment
for the 900-service tele-
phone number. "I feel
badly for people who
called the service. I regret
the inconvenience that it
has caused any of the
readers."

Brennan, whose com-
pany is owed money by
JIN, said he had been ex-
cited at the prospect of
marketing specifically to
the Jewish community. "I
still think that (Rabbi
Rubenstein's) ideas were
good ideas, perhaps
undercapitalized. There is
an obvious need for (the
service)."
Ray Kestenbaum, head
of RK Associates, the
public relations firm
which publicized the net-
work, said he felt the
rabbi was "an honest guy
with good ideas who just
got in over his head." He
said his company was not
owed money by JIN.
Rabbi Leib Tropper of
Yeshiva Kol Yaakov in
Monsey, N.Y., with which
the network was af-
filiated, said Rabbi
Rubenstein had gotten
divorced and was now liv-
ing in Manhattan.
