Jewish Book Fair
Promises Diverse Topics

LESLEY PEARL

Staff Writer

amity secrets are
nothing new. But what
happens when a child
discovers his parents have
`-' lied to him about his
cultural identity? What
happens as he is grappling
with his own sexual identi-
' ° ty?
That is the premise of Lev
Raphael's second book of fic-
tion, Winter Eyes. Mr.
Raphael, of Okemos, is one
of 33 writers scheduled to
speak at the 41st annual
Jewish Book Fair Nov. 14-22
at the West Bloomfield Jew-
ish Community Center. He
will read passages from the
book at 7 p.m. Nov. 15.
Winter Eyes is the story of
a young man and the Polish
immigrant parents that
raise him as a Catholic. He
discovers his parents are
Jewish and concentration
camp survivors. He is hiding
his sexual identity as a gay
man from them.
"This book is about what
makes people silent and
I N— what makes them speak,"
said Mr. Raphael, himself
the child of stu-vivors.
Rochelle Krich's Till
Death Do Us Part is another
of the more than 3,000 titles
included in the oldest Jewish
book sale in the United
States.
Ms. Krich comes from Los
Angeles to speak Nov. 16 at
7 p.m.
Till Death Do Us Part is
the story of a young Or-
thodox woman. Her husband
has granted her a civil

divorce but not a Jewish
divorce, a get.
"Although the main
character is Orthodox, this is
a problem that affects all
Jewish women," Ms. Krich
said. "I've heard of men who
won't give women a Jewish
divorce until the women are
too old to have children.
They're angry. They use it
as blackmail or as revenge."
Till Death Do Us Part is
Ms. Krich's second mystery
novel. It is her first work
representing Jewish prob-
lems.
"I was committed to this
theme," Ms. Krich said. "I
sold the idea to an editor
who was not Jewish. She
loved the story. She saw it as
a feminist story, as a human
rights story."
Other speakers include Al
Franken, of "Saturday
Night Live" fame, philan-
thropist Max Fisher and
Detroit News columnist
George Cantor.

Opening night, Lou Potter
will speak about his book
The Liberators. It is the true
story of a black battalion
battling racism while
fighting in World War II-
Europe. The group liberated
two concentration camps.
Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. Deena
Rosenberg, author of Fas-
cinating Rhythm, which
chronicles the lives of
George and Ira Gershwin,
will bring a pianist and
singers to the JCC for an
evening of Gershwin music.
There is a $25 fee for the per-
formance; all in attendance
will receive a free copy of the
book. El

Sinai Hospital Census
Is Unusually High

KIMBERLY LIFTON

Staff Writer

inai Hospital officials
last week were pleas-
antly surprised by an
unusually high census that
brought the hospital to full
occupancy.
At the end of last week,
Sinai's census had jumped to
490, the highest figure
recorded in a decade, offi-
cials said. The hospital,
which is licensed for 603
beds, is equipped to operate
500 beds.
Throughout the past year,
the census has remained
around the 380 mark. After
the Labor Day holiday,

however, patient counts
started to climb above 400.
"The increase clearly
shows a greater acceptance
of the medical staff that this
is the institution of choice,"
Sinai President and Chief
Executive Officer Philip
Schaengold said. "This is a
continuation of the res-
urgence of Sinai."
Mary Tenniswood,
spokesperson for th-e
Southeast Michigan Health
Council, said no other area
hospital has experienced
complete occupancy. In fact,
census figures at other
hospitals — including Provi-
dence, Grace and Harper —
were down last week.
On. Monday, Sinai's pa-
