SANDRA HYMAN



Director, Resettlement Service
Jewish Family Service

as a moderator of a panel discussion on

Seifu Lessanework:
Ethiopian Jews "need time and
the opportunity to catch up, but
they cannot receive preferential
treatment."







group was entertained by a
husband and wife team, both
of whom had been leading
pianists in the Soviet Union.
After the concert, one of the
group asked the husband
what he did for a living.
"I am a housekeeper for an
embassy, where my wife also
gives piano lessons," the
man replied.
"It's terrible," Mr.
Lessanework said. "Here we
have all this talent . . . "
Ethiopian Jews face a diff-
erent dilemma, said Mr.
Lessanework, who visited a
number of absorption
centers in Israel. They have
little education and must
adapt to a completely new
way of life.
"I'm especially concerned
for the older generation," he
said. "They have a hard time
accepting the new life."
Parents find themselves
dependent on their children,
who learn Hebrew quickly
and can adjust to Israeli
society. Furthermore, the
family patriarch finds
himself for the first time
without a job, and parents
are anxious about how easily
their children may assimi-
late.
Mr. Lessanework said he
often became a counselor for
families trying to cope with
the new Western culture.
At the same time, younger
Ethiopian Jews are finding
success in the Israel Defense
Forces, a new yeshiva for E-
thiopian Jews is working to
educate community leaders,
and a number of Ethiopian
Jewish immigrants are
enrolled at Israel's top
schools.
Mr. Lessanework dis-
agrees with critics who say
the only way Ethiopian Jews
can advance in Israeli socie-
ty is if they are allowed more
leniency in entering univer-
sities. Ethiopian Jews, he
said, must be held to the
same educational standards
as any other students. ❑

The Shaarit Haplaytah organization of Michigan (survivors of
the Holocaust) is pleased to contribute the sum of $25,000 to
Project Exodus in memory of Eric Rosenow. Having witnessed
the consequences of five and a half years of indifference to
the greatest tragedy in human history, we understand the
obligation of our people to help rescue our brothers and
sisters of the Soviet Union to a safe destiny in Israel. By help-
ing the exodus of our brothers and sisters from Russia to Israel,
we help strengthen the future of the State of Israel as well as
saving the lives and culture of our Jewish people from
persecution.
