"Aeroflot is not refusing to
fly to Israel because of econ-
omics or logistics," Arad
said. "They could not ask for
better terms: 100 percent oc-
cupancy, payment in foreign
currency, and flights accor-
ding to their schedule. It is
not economic; it is political."

was lobbied heavily during

hope that an alternate route
will be found through
Poland or Scandinavia. At
the same time, he is asking
U.S. officials for public
statements and use of the
Jackson-Vainik trade
amendment to pressure the
Soviet Union on the emigra-
tion issue.
Responding to Arab
charges that Soviet Jews
were being resettled in the
West Bank, Arad said 99
percent of the immigrants
were choosing to live in
Israel's major cities. ❑

bout to enter its se-
cond year, Project
Chametz will make it
easy for Detroit Jews to
clean their kitchen pantries
for Passover and help feed
' the hungry at the same time.
Traditionally at Passover,
Jews remove all bread pro-
ducts from their home by
selling them to a rabbi for a
few pennies.
"But much of the food goes
to waste," said Miriam
Imerman, Jewish Commun-
ity Council domestic affairs
director.
Project Chametz offers an
alternative. Instead of sell-
ing food, Jews can give it to
the hungry.
"It enables people in a
more meaningful way to
think about the hungry,"
said Imerman, who is coor-
dinating the Jewish Com-
munity Council sponsored
project.
Unopened packages of non-
perishable food not kosher
for Passover can be dropped
off at the Maple-Drake Jew-
ish Community Center, the
Jimmy Prentis Morris Jew-
ish Community Center in
Oak Park and at the United
Hebrew Schools building in
Southfield between April 2
and noon on April 6.
Although it will not be open
to the community, Hillel
Day School will also have a
food drop box.
The food will be picked up
by the Food Bank of Oak-
land County and Saint Vin-
cent de Paul Community
Food Depots throughout the
week. The food bank, which
serves 75 food pantries, soup
kitchens and shelters in
Oakland County, and St.
Vincent de Paul, which has
13 food pantries in
southeastern Michigan, will
distribute the food.

Both Jim Macy, Food Bank
of Oakland County director,
and Leonard Piasta, interim
director for Saint Vincent de
Paul, expect the donated
food to stay on the shelves
less than a week.
Using an idea from the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, the Jewish
Community Council started
Project Chametz last year.
More than 3,000 pounds of
food for the non-Jewish
hungry were collected in
three days.
The project was so suc-
cessful another collection
day was added this year,
Imerman said.
People are already getting
involved in this year's pro-
ject, 'merman said. Farmer
Jack Supermarkets have
donated the drop-off boxes,
while Agency for Jewish
Education students have
decorated them. Project
Chametz has the support of
the Vaad Harabonim and
the Michigan Board of
Rabbis.
While Project Chametz
offers help to non-Jews,
Moies Chetim has distributed
matzah, wine and gift cer-
tificates to needy Jewish
families in the Detroit area
since 1922.
Levi Smith, whose grand-
father co-founded the organ-
ization, said he expects to
serve 500 families, many of
whom are Soviet Jews, as
well as 100 Jewish nursing
home patients. Moies
Meanwhile, Yad Ezra, the
city's only kosher food pan-
ty, will close April 5 to April
18 for Passover.
Jeanette Eizelman, Yad
Ezra director, said Moies
Chitim was already estab-
lished and she did not want
to compete with it. However,
she hopes the two organiza-
tions can work together next
year.
