of their case, and make the
worst of Israel's case. It was
a brilliant speech. But as an
Israeli, I couldn't take it."
On another topic, Ms. Shalvi
was upbeat about the suc-
cesses of the women's
movement in Israel.
"There has been a real
change in the last few
years," she said. "There has
been a growth of awareness.
People used to say, 'What
are you talking about? We
already have equality.' That
perception has changed;
nobody in Israel dares main-
tain that we have equality
between the sexes any
The Gulf War, she said,
heightened understanding of
the special problems facing
Israeli women.
"With 43 percent of the
work force composed of wo-
men and with the schools
and day care centers closed
for six weeks, women
discovered that they were
also expected to stay home
and look after the children,"
she said. "In many cases,

Ars Poetica To Open
Allied Jewish Campaign

Friday night. The end of the week. The beginning
of Shabbat. A time to relax, reflect and renew. And as much a part of
this tradition as the candles and the challah was knowing the weekly
Jewish News had also arrived.
It brought news about the community, the nation
and the world. Today, that tradition hasn't changed. In fact, it's gotten
better. Each week award-winning journalists combine the warmth of
community with world issues using candor and compassion to
strengthen Jewish identity and...tradition.
Keep the tradition alive. Give a Jewish News
subscription to a friend, a relative, as a special gift. If you don't
subscribe, (and you find yourself always reading someone else's copy)
maybe it's time to start your own tradition. The Jewish News. It's a
tradition worth keeping.

women were dismissed by
their employees because
they stayed home, and this
was a tremendous con-
sciousness raiser."
On the peace process now
under way in Washington,
Ms. Shalvi was less op-
The Israeli government,
she argued, is less receptive
to territorial compromise
than ever.
"To put it sadly, there is a
greater sense of despair
among those who support a
more conciliatory position,"
she said.
Still, during her Washing-
ton visit she felt compelled
to challenge the anti-Israel
rhetoric of Hanan Ashrawi.
"One must dissociate the
Israeli government from
Israel as a state, or the
Israeli people," she said.
"What I try to make clear is
that we are a democratic
country, that we have an op-
position that is not stifled —
and that's more than can be
said about any of our oppo-
nents." ❑


rs Poetica, the book
by Horace, extolled
the beauty of fine lit-
erature and art. Ars Poetica,
the chamber orchestra, is a
tribute to the power of
Anatoli Cheiniouk found-
ed Ars Poetica less than a
year ago, hoping to create in
the Midwest a chamber
group of international
caliber. He has collected
musicians from the Detroit
Symphony Orchestra, the
Cleveland Orchestra and the
Chicago Symphony Or-
chestra to rehearse on
weekends. The chamber
group will perform this
Monday, at Temple Beth El
in Bloomfield Hills, for the
official opening of the Allied
Jewish Campaign.
Mr. Cheiniouk, who con-
ducts the group, arrived in
this country six years ago
after defecting from the
former Soviet Union. He was
able to apply for political
asylum in France while on a
concert tour with the
Moscow Virtuosi. While
leaving family and friends in
his native Soviet Union, Mr.
Cheiniouk, who now lives in
Grosse Pointe, has devoted
himself to using music as a

medium for understanding.
The concert is his way of
thanking Detroit's Jewish
community for helping him
settle in America.
"Most people are held
together by language," he
said. "Music is the most
understandable language."
Ars Poetica, he added, has
been like a "family," united
by their common interest in
good performance.
"We are not simply a
group of musicians," he said.

The chamber

Ars. Poetica will play
works by Antonio Vivaldi,
Ernst Bloch, Wolfgang
Mozart and Gioacchino

of I Musici de Montreal, will
accompany Ars Poetica on
cello for the pieces by
Bloch. ❑
