THE TALK OF THE TOWN

The philosophy of B'nai B'rith is . . . The world rests on three
study service and benevolence. The act of
foundations
tzedakah is clearly in the highest tradition of B'nai B'rith.
Rich in the number of projects in which it is and can become
engaged, B'nai B'rith is truly a world leader in the field
-
of community and volunteer service!
Wherever and whenever there is a need; be it victims of ear-
thquakes and floods, lonely veterans in hospitals, Jewish inmates
in prisons, older adults, the hungry and the homeless .. . MILFORD (MICKEY) NEMER
B'nai B'rith is on hand to answer the call, providing needed
services and people power! One might ask . . . Who died and left B'nai B'rith in charge
of the whole world!
I have made a commitment to B'nai B'rith because B'nai
B'rith has made a commitment to young people!
In 1924, B'nai B'rith founded the world's largest Jewish youth
program, B.BAT.O. More than half a million teenagers have passed
through the ranks, living and learning Judaism, participating in
community service activities and nurturing leadership skills. For
many kids the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization is the very core
of their Jewishness. It gives them a chance to identify as Jews,
and be proud of it.
GRAHAM ORLEY
Today, with assimilation on the rise, reaching out
to Jewish children and teenagers is more important than ever!

delivering American secrets
to a foreign nation.
There is no certain way of
knowing the amount of in-
formation Mr. Pollard gave
to the Israelis, but the fed-
eral government has
testified that it included the
location of U.S. intelligence
agents abroad, the location
of U.S. ships, special U.S. in-
telligence operations and
other sensitive material. Mr.
Pollard's proponents con-
tend that the information
was crucial to Israel's safety,
and while they do not con-
done his act, they defend his
motives.
"He was compelled to give
this information to Israel,"
said Mrs. Racey. Some of the
information Mr. Pollard
gave to Israel included
reports on Iraqi attempts to
develop poison gas weapons.
With the Gulf War fresh in
people's minds, local ac-
tivists are hoping to score
some points.

Kabbalah Weekend
At Shir Shalom

native of Poland, Professor
Karski was smuggled into a
Nazi concentration camp and
into the Warsaw Ghetto in
the early 40s to collect infor-
mation and evidence about
what he called "the scientific
organized extermination of
an entire faith." Professor
Karksi carried his messages
to the outside world.
The speaker will be New
York Times reporter, Judith
Miller, who authored the in-
vestigative One, by One, by

ON A ROLL

Ben Lusky Traveling

"The timing is perfect,"
said Mrs. Gardner. "We
have to reassess what
Pollard did in light of what
we know now. The climate is
much better for the Pollard
case because of the Gulf
War."
Mr. Pollard wrote in a
letter published in the Feb.
15 Wall Street Journal that
concern for Israeli lives was
the primary reason for pass-
ing on information.
"I'd rather be rotting in
prison than sitting shiva for
the hundreds of thousands of
Israelis who could have died
because of my cowardice."
In that message, the local
activists find their mission.
"We're all Jews, we all
face the same dilemma,"
said Mrs. Racey. "In a sense,
our silence can be very
dangerous. We think it can't
happen here β€”it can happen
here. I feel like a guest in
this country sometimes, as a
Jew." 0
