Tay Sachs is a rare genetic disease that a baby inherits from both

parents which causes progressive destruction of the central nervous

system and death by age five. There is no cure for the disease.
Most carriers are Jews of Eastern European descent.

You should be tested if you are over age 17, considering marriage

or pregnancy, or had been tested for the disease prior to 1980.

No appointments are necessary for the screening. The cost is $10.

This event is sponsored by the Sinai Hospital Guild, the Sinai

helpful and very significant,

The fact that Mr. _Clinton
refused to bargain with the
Rev. Jackson to win his en-
dorsement was seen by Dem-
ocratic pollster Peter Hart as
"terribly important" be-
cause it demonstrates to
voters that Mr. Clinton "is a
person who knows himself,
knows what he's about and
feels that he doesn't have to
adopt a certain stature for
each group."
In addition to positive re-
views of the party platform,

rave reviews of Sen. Gore.
Malcolm Hoenlein, ex-
ecutive director of the Con- c
ference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish LI
Organizations, termed Mr.
Gore a "longtime friend of -2
the community" and a
"great addition" to the !
ticket.
The executive director of
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee, Tom
Dine, pointed out that Mr.
Gore even "took a planeload
of Christian Zionists to
Israel."
"He's got the president on
the defensive, as far as the
Jewish community is con-
cerned," said Rabbi Hier.

ill Clinton delegate
Zina Kramer was a
little weary during
Tuesday night's platform
committee meeting at the
Democratic National Con-
vention in New York.
It was long and laborious,
and she really wanted to be
at the women's program — a
fund-raiser for the first wo-
men's political action com-
mittee, Emily's List, which
attracted 3,000 men and
women and netted $750,000.
Despite the lackluster ses-
sion, Ms. Kramer, one of two
Jewish Clinton delegates
from Michigan, was feeling
energized during her first
trip to the Democratic Na-
tional Convention.
"Last night's session was
just not the most
stimulating," she said of
Tuesday's platform meeting.
"The highlight was Aretha
Franklin singing 'The Star
Spangled Banner' and Jesse
Jackson's speech. His speech
was alive, and he tried hard
to bring the party together.
"He talked about peace in
Israel and he got great ap-
plause for that," Ms.
Kramer said.
Ms. Kramer said the Clin-
ton-Gore ticket is the "most
pro-Israel ticket ever." On
Monday, she attended an
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee briefing for
Jewish delegates.
"This ticket (Clinton-Gore)
presents an interesting mes-
sage to the Jewish commun-
ity," she said. "Each has

always been really suppor-
tive of Israel. Al Gore af-
firmed his support. There
was a sense of energy and
great satisfaction because
Sen. Gore had been
nominated and had such a
strong pro-Israel record. The
total package is very positive
and favorable. Yitzhak Rabin
will mean a lot to the peace
process."
The other Jewish Clinton
delegate from Michigan,
Marvin "Mickey" Meltzer of
Birmingham, is a longtime-
Democratic Party activist
who has handled public rela-
tions for Mr. Clinton in
Michigan.
"It is a great convention,"
Mr. Meltzer said. "The most
important thing is we are-

adopting a great platform
that is attractive for middle c=
America. It is tremendous
from the Jewish perspective.
The platform includes ,_
building bridges among peo-
ple, and it is strong for the
Middle East."
State Rep. Maxine Ber-
man, D-Southfield, was in
New Yoork as a delegate for
former Sen. Paul Tsongas.
And state Sen. Lana Pollack, ci) .
D-Ann Arbor, went to the
convention as a Tsongas
alternate.
Once Ms. Pollack arrived
in New York, she became a
