Are Soviet Jew

How long will the doors of emigration
from the Soviet Union remain open to
the Soviet Jews? These questions arise
during a period where all evidence
points to a sharp increase in anti
Semitic activity, where rumors a
rampant of impending pogroms,
Soviet Jews are in a state of part

• "Hand in Hand for Justice," a unique and moving display depicting
the coalition between the Black and Jewish communities during the
civil rights movement of the 1960s, reached thousands of students at
dozens of area schools.

• A new task force was formed, mandated to explore ways to
strengthen Jewish activism and identity in our college-age youth.
The task force is comprised of representatives from a variety of
agencies involved in these issues.

Glasnost may be easing fears of war President Mikhail Gorbachev onto .

• When public funds were used to finance the appearance of Louis
Farrakhan at Michigan State University, the editors of both the Detroit
News and Detroit Free Press responded to calls by Executive
Director Gad-Hart by printing editorials decrying Farrakhan's
message of hate. Letters from Council board members supporting
those editorials were printed in both papers.

Council was more effective than ever before in both reaching out and
responding to the local media. We are increasingly the agency called
on by the media for the "Jewish viewpoint."

• Council joined forces with The Jewish News on several projects
which generated enormous response. Project Sherut, a program
which matches agencies with in-kind needs with donors of goods
and services appears weekly in The Jewish News. The Jewish
News also supports Project Chametz with a series of full-page ads.

• An op-ed piece by Executive Director Gad-Hart was printed in the
Michigan Chronicle, the Black community weekly, in response to
their editorial on Farrakhan.

• Council and the editorial leadership at the Detroit Free Press
conducted two half-day seminars designed to give each group a
better sensitivity toward the other's issues and goals.

• We continued to implement our policy of pro-action when world
events dictate, issuing timely statements which were widely picked
up by the news media.
