FRIDAY, MARCH 2,1990

n the campus of
Berkeley, there are
varied reminders that
this former haven for flower
children is still a place of free
spirits and funky styles.
The young man with pony
tail, whose T-shirt is covered
with political buttons, the
student strumming his
guitar, the man in cowboy hat
and high boots who hands out
political leaflets — all are
part of the modern campus
scene in this well-known col-
lege town just thirty minutes
from San Francisco.

But a visit to Berkeley of-
fers far more than local color.
For the Jewish traveler, it of-
fers the chance to explore
what is unofficially the
capital of Jewish culture in
the Bay Area.
Jewish attractions include
an outstanding Jewish
museum, a brand new Jewish
theater, klezmorim concerts,
and congregations that range
from neo-Orthodox to the
Aquarian Minyan, one of the
original havurot in the
United States.
Hillel House, the fourth
oldest in the United States, is
a good starting point for a
tour of Jewish Berkeley. The
University of California
branch here is home to 30,000
students, and almost 20 per-
cent of them are Jewish.
"Our students are interfac-
ing with one of the most ac-
tive political and intellectual
environments anywhere,"
says Rabbi Martin Ballonoff,
who has been at Berkeley for
11 years. "Whatever becomes
a concern for American Jews,

we're among the first to deal
with it."
Facilities for Jewi-''
students include a Jewish
student cooperative, a Jewish
studies program, and a wide
range of lectures and special
programs. Headquartered at
Hillel House is the Lehrhaus
Judaica, one of the most ex-
tensive adult educational pro-
grams anywhere, offerir g
courses in everything from
biblical Hebrew to modern
Middle East politics. It serves
almost 2,000 students in the
Bay Area, who choose from
over 150 courses offered each
year.
Not far from Hillel House is
the site of the newly
renovated Spice Box Culture
Center at 800 Heinz Street, a
theater exclusively for Jewish
productions.
"It's been remodeled from
an old spice warehouse?" ex-
plains Lee Marsh, founder of
the Berkeley Jewish Theater,
one of the few Jewish reper-
tory theaters in the nation.
The Spice Box is the center-
piece of a new million dollar
downtown development that
includes restaurants and
shops. Besides the theater,
Marsh plans to open a Jewish
cabaret soon.
Not far from the Spice Box,
is Saul's Delicatessan at 1475
Shaddock, where the novelty
is the New York motif.
Waitresses wear T-shirts that
say, "A Great New York Deli
in Berkeley?' On the walls are
photos of classic New York
delis. The food, too, is straight
from the Big Apple.

"We go out of our way to be
specifically New York," says
owner Andrea Lichtenstein.
"We fly in fish, pastrami,
