"My Mommy & Daddy Refinanced Their
Mortgage At World Wide Financial. Again."
Miles Neumann

the Jewish Community
Center of Washtenaw County,
described how Jews and
blacks have worked together
in Washtenaw County to plan
and observe a black-Jewish
seder.
Learning to recognize
• •
) significant
issues for blacks
and for Jews helps the others
understand, he said. "There
• are two general ways coali-
• tions go. They talk about the
issues and they engage joint-
ly in projects."
Friendships have developed
from a July 4 picnic, working
' to rehabilitate public housing
\„ in Ypsilanti and annual
• black-Jewish seders.
"We found, where I live,
/- that if you work together then
) you must talk, because there
are so many misconceptions,"
Mr. Gordon said. "It's in both
communities?'
In revealing discussions be-

ween blacks and Jews, Mr.
Gordon said, "the blacks kept
referring to the Jews as
whites. The Jews were
astonished! They never
thought of themselves as
white; they thought of them-
selves as Jews, and there's a
distinction to them."
In another afternoon
dialogue, two Jewish authors,
Lev Raphael of Michigan
State University and Harry
Brod from Kenyon College,
discussed whether gays and
• heterosexuals can be allies.
Mr. Raphael said Jews often
feel like outsiders, but Jews
who also are gay, lesbian or
bisexual feel doubly like out-
siders.
"I think we are expected to
be invisible and silent," he
said.
Both said they are children
of Holocaust survivors, but
Mr. Raphael said homosexual
children of Holocaust sur-
vivors in the lesbian and gay
synagogues he visits often
ask him where others are.
"Lesbian and gay children
of survivors," he said, "are
constantly felt unwelcome."
Mr. Brod said he works in
the pro-feminist/men's move-
ment, but "Jewish men face
> issues caught by their own
parts of the culture. One way
\-
we try is to dominate our
women and be physically ag-
gressive."
The conference also
featured:
• Jerome Segal, founder of
the Jewish Peace Lobby, who
discussed the "Middle East
/-'
Peace Process and American
Policy."
• Two short films, Chicken
Soup and Gefilte Fish,
\, highlighting the foods we eat.
> • "This Is the Moment:
Israelis and Palestinians
Talking Peace," a 30-minute
videotape produced by the
Boston NJA. ❑
