Hillel Shares Passover
With Detroit Students

SUSAN GRANT

Staff Writer

illel Day School
students proved Mar-
ch 30 that teaching
their pen pals from Detroit's
Ilene Elementary School the
meaning of Passover didn't
have to be boring.
Although the story of
Passover is a serious one,
laughter filled the classroom
as Hillel fifth graders pre-
sented a play based on the
Exodus from Egypt. The
children made the story
come alive for those Ilene
students who knew little
about the holiday.
The play was part of a
model seder the Hillel
students shared with their
friends at Ilene, an elemen-
tary school on Detroit's west
side.
In addition to the play, the
17 Ilene students had a
chance to sample the bitter
herb, charoset, eggs, salt
water and celery found on
the seder plate, while the 17
Hillel students from three
fifth-grade classes took turns
explaining what the seder
meant. Most of the children
liked the eggs, salt water
and celery, but the bitter
herbs and charoset weren't a
big hit.
At the end of the seder, the
Ilene students got a tour of
the school as they searched
for the afikomen.
Celebrating Passover
together is part of a cultural
awareness program, Open
Minds/Open Arms. The pro-
gram, now in its second year,
was jointly developed by
Laval Brown, volunteer
teacher of Russian and Heb-
rew culture at Ilene, and
Shelley Goldberg, an

enrichment teacher at
Hillel. In the first year, the
children took field trips
around the city. This year
the program was expanded
to include visits to each
school.
The Hillel and Ilene
students have written to
each other since November.
In February, the pen pals
met for the first time at Ilene
to celebrate Black History
Month with skits about
famous black leaders.
"I know the kids are grow-
ing up in different com-
munities where they don't
meet each other," Brown
said. "These kids grow up in
the city and don't have the
opportunity to play with
kids of other cultures."
Immogene Jackson, a fifth-
grade teacher at Ilene, said
"The children have accepted
this program so beautifully.
Some of the matched pen
pals send each other gifts."
Brown said when the
school year is over, some of
the Ilene students might
never meet another Jew un-
til they go to college. But he
hopes they will remember
this program and treat Jews
with respect.
Lisa Berkowitz, 10 and Joy
Martin, 11, have become
good friends since they
began writing to each other
in November. Both girls en-
joy swimming and roller
skating and plan to get
together this summer.
Joy said the culture
exchange program has
taught her about different
Jewish ceremonies and what
kind of food Jews can eat.
Lisa is Joy's first Jewish
friend. "Goldberg is not a
common name on our side of
town," Joy said. ❑
