Israel and love the Jewish
people. We pray, fast and
agonize for Israel. We know
what George Bush and his
New World Order has in mind
for Israel: to give up the ter-
ritories. We believe this would
put Israel in terrible jeopardy.
We stand by Israel and pray
that she would resist all
pressures and stand fast. God
has given the land to her. She
has gone in and possessed it,
including Judea and
Samaria.
We pray that America
would not betray Israel.
Genesis 27:29 says, "Cursed
be everyone that curseth thee,
and blessed by he that
blesseth thee."
Stand fast, Israel, for God is
on your side and will fight for
you. We love you with all our
hearts and only wish you
blessings upon blessings.

he Jewish holidays
have cancelled more
than school this year.
At the Jimmy Prentis
Morris Jewish Community
Center in Oak Park, chil-
dren's sports classes were
practically empty during the
first week of registration.
Practically no one signed up
for popular classes like
karate and gymnastics.
At first, some thought the
problem was economic. This
year, JCC Executive Direc-
tor Dr. Morton Plotnick
directed both Centers to
begin charging the same for
classes that both offered.
Physical education direc-
tors Candy Bousquet and
Theresa Fulgenzi feared
that this change, contrary to
past policy, might have
scared away Oak Park
families who could not pay
the higher rates.
Five years ago, some Oak
Park families objected to
paying the same price for
classes that featured poorer
equipment. and facilities
than those offered at the
Maple-Drake JCC. As a
result, similar classes had
different price tags: the dif-
ference usually came to $10
less at JPM per class.
"Before, all JPM had was
an un-air-conditioned gym
and a couple of balls and
that was it," said Ms. Bous-

quet. "Now, they've got an
air-conditioned gym and all
the latest equipment."
The reason so few parents
signed up their children in
JPM classes this year, Ms.
Bousquet said, was the holi-
day schedule, not the cost of
the classes.
The major holidays —
Rosh Hashanah, Yom
Kippur, Sukkot — fell on
Mondays, Tuesdays and
Wednesdays. Religious
Jews, say JCC staffers, were

"At such an early
part of the school
year, they may not
be ready for
after-school
programs."

Theresa Fulgenzi

not willing to register their

children even though many
of the classes were held on
non-holy days.
"They weren't coming to
the Center because they
were concentrating on the
Jewish holidays," said Ms.
Bousquet. As a result, three-
quarters of the JPM's chil-
dren's classes were postpon-
ed four to five weeks until
after the Jewish holidays.
The JCC shortened some of
the classes at JPM from 10
weeks to five or six. Sign-ups
for these shortened classes
have reached normal levels,
said Ms. Busquet.
