n 'her community, Max-
ine Shapiro is a leader.
When your community
is Grand Rapids and its Jews
are a small minority, it's
sometimes good to feel the '
strength that can be drawn
from other Jewish numbers
across the state.
That's exactly what the
Michigan Jewish Conference
wanted to accomplish when
it started over a year ago.
Nowhere was the across-the-
state strength more visible
than in East Lansing Tues-
day night when Governor
John Engler addressed some
170 represenatives at the
conference's first anniver-
sary reception.
Governor Engler stressed
the importance of the state's
Jewish community and the
contributions it makes day-
to-day. He also said that it
was important for a group
such as the conference to ex-
ist to combat what seems to
be a rising incidence of hate
and anti-Semitism across
the country.
"The voice of this con-
ference is strong and impor-
tant to me," said Gov.
Engler. "I'm listening to
that voice. It's a group that
is looking for a way to pro-
vide. services for the state-
wide Jewish community. As
you return to your corn-
munities, please remember
again that I hear what you
are saying."
President Ralph J. Gerson
said the organization's goal
will be to continue increas-
ing awareness among state

officials of the conference.
He added it was important
for the Jewish community
around the state to be
organized.
Mrs. Shapiro, chairman of
the women's division of the
Jewish Community Fund of
Grand Rapids, said five
years ago it was difficult for
Grand Rapids' Jews to stand
up and be counted in the.

It was important
for the conference
to combat what
seems to be a
rising incidence of
hate and
anti-Semitism.

city, which is known for its
conservative politics. Now,
she said, that has changed.
"Jews here in Michigan
are willing to be counted,"
she said. "There's no need to
have a low profile anymore.
The conference is so impor-
tant because it puts us in
partnership with other Jew-
ish communities that all of
us can learn from." ❑
