Thanks to you, your kids grew up in a nice
Jewish home. So why shouldn't theirs be one,
too? No, we re not suggesting you tell your kids
how to live. Heaven forbid. But there is one
small thing you can do. Give them a sub-
scription to The Jewish News. You'll be giving
them a publication that offers far more than
when they were kids. Because like your kids,
The Jewish News has grown and matured. Today
it's the fastest growing Jewish weekly in the

nation with award-winning journalists who write
with care about local, national and international
events that affect us all. And for articles on

source around.
You spent years providing a nice Jewish home
for your kids. So why stop now? Order them
their own subscription to The Jewish News. After
all, we grew up in lots of nice Jewish homes . .
like yours.

pamphlet on cultural
diversity, produced
by 19 ethnic commun-
ity groups, will be
distributed to tri-county
school parents starting in
January.
The pamphlet was the idea
of Detroit's Jewish Com-
munity Council, which
wants to get parents to talk
to their children about
respecting other races, re-
ligions and cultures.
"Diversity is the lifeblood
of our collective spirit,"
reads the pamphlet, titled
"The American Mosaic:
Cultural Diversity in the
Schools." It says, "The
unique talents and abilities
of our cultural 'mosaic' are
among America's greatest
assets."
Making the case for
cultural diversity is not an
altruistic act. Several com-
munities in metro Detroit
have witnessed hostility to
minority groups within the
schools. The pamphlet, the
sponsors hope, will help
parents understand the
changing face of their chil-
dren's schools.
The pamphlet, which was
hatched two years ago by a
special task force of the JC-
Council, will be handed out
to as many students as
possible in the tri-county
area. Full participation by
Wayne County schools is not
yet confirmed.
While there are about
600,000 students in the area,

not all are expected to
receive the pamphlet. The
problem is funding; while the
JCCouncil was able to win
the support of 19 cultural and
ethnic community groups, the
schools will be responsible for
printing.
Buit the pamphlet's pro-
duction represents a diff-
erent kind of success for the
JCCouncil, since it is the
first time it has worked
together with several com-
munity groups, including
the Italian American
Cultural Society, Latino
Family Services, Inc. and
the American-Arab Anti-
Discrimination Committee.
"It's a bigger breakthrough
than just a brochure," said
Beverly Phillips, community
affairs associate for JCCoun-
cil.
