Gary Rosenblatt's main
thesis (Nov. 1) that the Jewish
community, like every other,
bestirs itself to action
especially when confronted by
actual or perceived threats.
However, he insults Jewish
students at the University of
Michigan and elsewhere, with
his gross generalizations
about students' overall "com-
placency" about matters
Jewish.
Every week, many hun-
dreds of Jewish students at-
tend dozens of programs spon-
sored by the more than 25
student groups under the
Hillel umbrella. Jewish stu-
dent leaders, by the score,
organize their community
and volunteer untold hours to
create an atmosphere here at
the university that is not on-
ly hospitable but nurturing to
Jewish student life.
Mr. Rosenblatt attempts to
score easy points with some
well-worn allegations about
Jewish apathy. Four mi-
nyanim (Sabbath services) —
Reform, Conservative, Or-
thodox, and Women's —
operate out of Hillel. Five pro-
Israel organizations thrive
here, not to mention groups
devoted to Jewish study,
social action, kosher food,
Jewish cultural arts and
much more.
Don't beat up on B'nai
B'rith Hillel and Jewish
students. Every campus com-
munity is unique and at the
University of Michigan, as
elsewhere, this generation of
Jewish students is far more
committed than you think.
They responded swiftly, pas-
sionately and very effectively
to the ad in The Daily
(Michigan student paper) de-
nying the Holocaust. Their ef-
forts and success should be
lauded, not belittled.

`Your Home
Is In Israel'

The
Israeli finance
minister, in a speech to a
medical convention in
Jerusalem, told of a three-
hour meeting with Gorbachev
in Moscow. He asked Gor-
bachev, "Why are you letting
the Jews leave the country
but not others?" "Because,"
Gorbachev allegedly said,
"the Jews have no home here
— their home is Israel."
The finance minister was
delighted, but he should have
been outraged. He should
have said that Jews are entitl-
ed to live in the Diaspora or
in Israel, as they like. The
anti-Semites use it to say to
the Jews, "Leave. Your home
is Israel."

Settlement Story
Showed Importance

Thank you, Helen Davis, for
your marvelous, in-depth
background article (Nov. 15)
on the settlements. You told
Israel's story as it is and
described how important
those settlements are to
Israel's survival.
Anyone that does not
understand that just refuses
to recognize the facts of the
situation.
