Presents

ham Hillel Moses to register
to vote, implying that a vote
against Mr. Duke would be
wise.
Joe Tarica, executive di-
rector for Beth Abraham
Hillel Moses, said the con-
g-regation's leaders want its
members to register with a
party,,to be politically aware
and active, and to vote as
responsible American
citizens. In a monthly
newsletter, congregants
were urged to vote in the
primary.
"We are urging all Jewish
organizations not to get in-
volved in partisan or elec-
tion activity in favor or op-
position of any candidate,"
said David Gad-Harf, ex-
ecutive director for the Jew-
ish Community Council.
In Michigan, and across
the country, Jewish organ-
izations — even those with
political ties — are polit-
ically constrained because of
their (federal 501C-3) tax ex-
empt status, which prevents
them from endorsing or op-
posing candidates.
Instead, Mr. Gad-Harf
said, organizations should
educate their voters so they
can make informed choices
at the polls. The Jewish
Community Council, he
said, is trying to get more
members of the community
involved in the political pro-
cess.
Three Detroit organiza-
tions, the Jewish Commun-
ity Council, the National
Council of Jewish Women
and Congregation Beth
Achim, hope to educate the
community at a Feb. 16 po-
litical forum featuring
representatives from
organized campaign staffs of
Republican and Democratic
presidential hopefuls.
"We believe that Jewish
voters, like all voters, need
to have as much information
as possible about candidate's
positions facing the city,
state, and nation," Mr. Gad-
Harf said. "With that infor-
mation, they will be able to
make an informed judgment
in the upcoming election."
Other organizations are
also bringing attention to
this election. The local
NAACP recently hosted a
program about David Duke
and extremist groups, and
the NAACP is organizing a
voter registration drive to
combat poor voter turnout in
Detroit.
In addition, New Detroit
Inc. has put together a task
force on hate politics, to be
chaired by Mr. Gad-Harf.
The American Arabic and
Jewish Friends this week
sponsored a program on the
election and hate politics. ❑
