belief in the separation of
church and state.)
"We are interested in help-
ing secure state funding for
the social services parts of
the community," Mr. Naftaly
said, adding that many other
ethnic and religious groups,
including Catholic and Arab
groups, are represented in
The PAC has input from
Jewish representatives of
both parties. On the Repub-
lican side is Andrea Fischer,
who will co-chair the May 20
informational event. Ms.
Fischer managed fund-

JPAC will contribute
funds to candidates who
JPAC members believe will
support local issues of inter-
est to the general Jewish
community. Agencies that
receive state funds or are af-
fected by state rules include
JARC, the agency for devel-
opmentally disabled adults;
Kadima, which provides so-
cial services for adults with
psychiatric disabilities; Jew-
ish Vocational Service; Sinai
Hospital and the Jewish
Home for Aged, which
receive Medicaid funding.
"The PAC shows support
for candidates who support
social services," said Joyce
Keller, JARC executive di-
rector. "It shows we will put
our money where our mouth
"So much of our funding is
dependent upon the activity
of the legislature," Ms.
Keller said. "So our presence
in Lansing is very important
in terms of insuring that our
positions are heard."
To date, Gov. John Engler
received the largest con-
tribution when JPAC wrote
him a $1,000 check last
September. Others who
received funds serve on
committees that could have

impact upon some of the
Jewish agencies.
Monies have gone to the
House Democratic Victory
Fund ($300), the House
Republican Mahout Club
($100) and the House Repub-
lican Leader Fund ($300).
A few individual legis-
lators also have received
JPAC contributions:
Rep. David Hollister, D-
Lansing, who serves on the
House appropriations com-
mittee and the mental
health subcommittee, is
considered a staunch ad-
vocate for all social services.
JPAC contributed $100 to
Mr. Hollister in October.
Sen. Robert Geake, R-

It supports
candidates who
support social

Northville, serves on the -
Senate appropriations com-
mittee, and he chairs the so-
cial services and mental
health subcommittees.
JPAC contributed $500 to
his campaign fund in March.
When former Rep. Michael
Bouchard, R-Birmingham,
ran last year to fill a vacant
Senate seat, JPAC con-
tributed $250 to his suc-
cessful campaign. He chairs
the Senate education com-
Rep. Burton Leland, the
only Jewish representative
from Detroit, received a
$100 contribution in Oc-
tober. Others recipients
were: Rep. Michael Ben-
nane, D-Detroit, who chairs
the public health committee
($100); Sen. Matt Dunaskiss,
R-Oxford, the assistant
majority whip who serves on
the health policy committee
($125); and Sen. Phil Ar-
thurhultz, R-Whitehall, the
majority floor leader who
chairs the go-vernment
operations committee and
serves on the appropriations
committee ($150).- ❑

that two years ago, while at-
tending a Midwest regional
conference in Toronto, mem-
bers of Simcha volunteered
to host the 1992 regional
"We felt it was our turn,
and we thought, 'We've still
got two years. We can do
this,' " he said.
Planning the conference,
which is expected to attract
some 150 guests, has been a
challenge, Dan admitted.
A major issue facing the

group was whether to
disclose the convention
meeting place. While a con-
ference registration form
does list the location, Sim-
cha has opted to keep this in-
formation private.
"Some members of Simcha
feel it's absurd to keep it
quiet," he said. "Others say
we have to minimize the
chance of exposure to any
problems. We are struggling
with these kinds of issues
now as a group." ❑
