FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 1991

Managing Editor

ederation's long-
planned study mission
to Israel was postponed
last Friday following the
U.S. State Department's
recommendation that
Americans leave Israel if they
don't need to be there.
Thirty-five people were
signed up for the week-long
journey which was supposed
to leave New York on Jan.
19.
"All this didn't happen un-
til Friday when the State
Department made its ad-
visory that all Americans
evacuate Israel," said Bob
Aronson, Federation's exec-
utive vice president. "Our
leadership met and we
decided that considering the
responsibility that we have
for the community, we had
no choice except to postpone
the trip. Everybody we spoke
to who was scheduled to go
on the trip said they were
still ready to go as soon as
we get the all clear. We're
still hanging in.
"This leaves us with an
empty feeling," Mr. Aronson
continued. "We feel a con-
cern for Israel right now."
Federation president Mark
Schlussel, who actually
helped conceive the trip and
was to lead it in Israel, said

that it was with a great deal
of sadness that the trip was
called off. He added that
Israeli officials needed to
spend their time in prepara-
tion for the defense of their
homeland rather than brief
a U.S. mission.
"Our group might not
serve as an inspiration but
more as a hindrance during
these trying times," Mr.
Schlussel said. "I think fur-
ther that if, God forbid, war

"This leaves us
with an empty
feeling."

comes, it's critically impor-
tant that the Federation
leadership be available in
Detroit to make appropriate
decisions concerning how
we'll maximize our
resources to fully support
Israel's efforts."
Larry Jackier, another
member of the contingent,
also expressed his sorrow at
the trip's cancellation.
"In the face of what is go-
ing on, it's the only rational
reaction to take," he said.
"We're in a position of just
watching and observing
world events, and when it's
reasonable to visit Israel, a
significant group of people
from Detroit will go."

Tay-Sachs Screening
Will Be Re-Scheduled

STAFF REPORT

T

he Tay-Sachs disease
screening scheduled
for Sunday at Sinai
Hospital of Detroit was
cancelled by the hospital due
to lack of interest.
Genetics counselor Robin
Gold, a genetics counselor at
the hospital, said the special
screening for the Orthodox
community only had two in-
quiries. The special screen-
ing, in conjunction with the
Chevra Dor Yeshorim
organization in Brooklyn,
N.Y., does not inform par-
ticipants whether they are
Tay-Sachs carriers. Instead,
when a couple plans to
marry they send their test
identification numbers to
the organization and are in-
formed if they could produce
a Tay-Sachs baby.
Ms. Gold said the lack of
interest may be due to the

community-wide screenings
conducted two years ago.
"We went into the day
schools then, and I guess
there just isn't enough in-
terest right now."
Rabbi Shaiall Zachariash
of Congregation Shomrey
Emunah helped coordinate
the Chevra Dor Yeshorim
screening. He said a screen-
ing would probably be
scheduled in early 1992.
"Last time we did several
classes at the day schools.
We should have more inter-
est next year when the
younger classes move up."
Ms. Gold said Sinai is
planning a general commun-
ity screening in April or
May. Individuals may also
contact Sinai at any time for
a personal appointment.
A child born with Tay-
Sachs appears normal for
the first five to six months of
life but has a life expectancy
of only four or five years.
