Where Dreams Are Born

A

new recording that
offers sweet dreams
to everyone from
infants to seniors has
been awarded the 1992
Parents Choice magazine
Honor for Outstanding
Children's Recordings.
"Where Dreams Are
Born" is a col-
lection of Jew-
ish lullabies
recorded by
Ilene Safyan
(at left) and
Margie Rosen-
thal.
Parents
Choice label-
ed "Dreams" a
"solid, sooth-
ing collection
of songs for
day's end."
Drawn from Eastern
European, Sephardic, Is-
raeli and American-
Jewish traditions, the
songs are performed in
Yiddish, English, Hebrew
and Ladino. They include
such classics as "Turn-
balalaika" and "Almonds
and Raisins," as well as
contemporary favorites
like "Wings of Love" and
"Tallit."
Margie Rosenthal and
Ilene Safyan are not
native Detroiters, but that
hasn't dimmed their love
for the city.
"We have wonderful
feelings about Detroit,"
said Ms. Safyan, who lives

in Portland, Ore. "We had
the honor of performing at
Congregation Beth Sha-
lom in Oak Park in June
1991. It was a special
evening for all of us."
Ms. Safyan also has
plenty of family in the
area, including her great-
aunt • Sally
Brown, cou-
sins Phyllis
and Edward
Bean, and sis-
ter-in-law
Margie Rosen-
berg of Ann
Arbor. "Also,
my sister, my
husband and
three of his
siblings, as
well as my
mother-in-law
and father-in-law all grad-
uated from the University
of Michigan."
Since it's likely any
copies of the tape avail-
able locally already have
been picked up by Ms.
Safyan's substantial fami-
ly contingent here, those
interested in purchasing
"Where Dreams are Born"
may have to do so by
phone or mail.
The tape costs $9.95
plus $2 shipping. It may
be ordered through SILO
Distributors, 1-800-541-
9904, or through Sheera
Recordings, P.O. Box

On Religion in Schools

T

he Anti-Defamation
League has pub-
lished a new hand-
book to help clarify
issues surrounding reli
gion and the public
schools.
Religion in the Public
Schools: Guidelines for a
Growing and Changing
Phenomenon is available
to school board members
and administrators,
teachers and, parents. It
features sample scena.r
ios regarding religion
and religious activities
from kindergarten to
12th grade. In a ques-
tion-and-answer format,
it offers legal and policy
guidelines on what reli t.

gious activity is constitu-
tionally permissible,
what is prohibited in
public schools.
The book asks, for
example, "What happens
when a coach leads his
team in prayer before a
football game and one
student feels uncomfort-
able about it?" "Can the
study of Bible as litera-
ture be included in cur-
riculum?" "Are religious
songs constitutional in
holiday concerts?"
Copies of Religion in
the Public Schools may
be obtained from the
ADL, Dept. JW, 823

What's Cooking

w

hat are the best
cookbooks pub-
lished in the last
three years by Jewish
women's organizations?
Sol Marshall wants to
know.
Mr. Marshall, of Van
Nuys, Calif., is a writer,
book reviewer and speak-
er, and his favorite subject
is Jewish cookbooks.
In recent months, Mr.
Marshall has toured the
country, discussing choice
cookbooks in his speech
"Sol's Sisterhood Sweet
Sixteen." Audiences, he
says, always want to know
"why these books caught
my attention, and they
want the recipes."
Now, Mr. Marshall is
inviting Jewish women's
groups of all kinds to send
him cookbook review
copies, published or repub-
lished from 1990-1992, for
a report he will write on
"Jewish Women Cook for
Their Clubs." The deadline
for submission is March
15.
Those interested in sub-
mitting a cookbook should
first contact Mr. Marshall
for complete instructions.
His address is c/o the
Creative Book Company,
8210 Varna Ave., Van
Nuys, CA 91402, or call

Here Comes
The Judge

jr

udge Joseph Wapner,
last seen on "The
People's Court," has
been elected president of
the Brandeis-Bardin
Institute in Ventura
County, Calif., just out-
side Los Angeles.
Judge Wapner and his
wife Mickey (no relation to
Mouse) have been affiliat-
ed with the institute, a
Jewish cultural education-
al center, since the late
`60s. Judge Wapner was in
1986 elected to the
Brandeis board of direc-
tors and also served on the
executive committee.

has just
/I
opened a ,Sephardic
synagog4e — its
first new synagogue in
more than 65 years.
The new congregation
comprises mostly the
5,000 Jewish immigrants
from the Asian republics
of the former Soviet
Union. They arrived in
Vienna on route to Israel,
during immigration
waves that began in the
1970s, and opted to stay.
The new, synagogue is
in a prewar district nick-
named 'Mazzesins el"

(Island of. Matzot) be-
cause of its once-thriving
Jewish population, ac-
cording to a newsletter
published by the Aus-
trian. consulate. Before
World War I, Vienna was
home to some 220,000
Jews.
The cost of the new
synagogue was $650,000,
which included $250,000
each from the Austrian
Education Ministry and
the city of Vienna, and
an additional $150,000
from the Ronald S.
Lauder Foundation.

Nightmare On Kosher Street

I

t started out like any
afternoon.Gladys
Goldberg donned her
"#1 Mom" apron as she
entered her cheery
kitchen, its walls newly
redecorated with orange-
and-yellow floral wallpa-
per. She was about to
make cookies for little
Dottie's synagogue youth
group.
As she did every week-
day at 1:30 p.m., Gladys
turned on "The Bold and
the Beautiful."
"Gosh," she exclaimed,

like Karen.) And what
about Zach? Would he
ever find acceptance in
Stephanie's eyes?
That's when it hap-
pened.
Gladys opened her
fleshig cabinet and pulled
out a bowl. Still thinking
about Ridge, she began
filling it with hot butter.
"No!" she screamed,
dropping the bowl, her
eyes bulging out to Mexico
and back.
That's right, dear read-
ers. Gladys had just made
her bowl treife!
