"Dr. Ron Wolfson is gifted with a
pragmatic sense fitted to the needs
and wants of Jews who come from
the periphery and seek to enter
the center of Jewish life. This book
combines the author's intelligence
as a Jewish educator and his experi-
ence as a father aware of the Passover
mandate to transmit memories to our
children. Sprinkled with anecdote,
aphorisms and good humor, it pa-
tiently guides the reader to significant
practice: what to do, why it is done
and how to answer."

Jewish community. Several
years ago, the church and
Temple Israel formed a part-
nership, raising money for
black scholarships. Both
Hartford and Temple Israel
are anxious to rebuild a rela-
tionship — starting with the
women's groups of both con-
gregations hosting refresh-
ments after the performance.
Future plans include youth
group meetings and social ac-
tion projects.
"I'm not sure why we split
in the first place. I think it was
more of a drift. But we're hop-
ing this really takes off this
time," said Linda Brodsky,
Temple Israel president.
The Rev. Diane Smalley
Norman of Hartford
Memorial Baptist expressed
similar sentiments.
"We're interested in open-
ing a dialogue with the Jewish
community," she said. She
hopes the two groups can ad-
dress issues such as anti-
Semitism in the black
community, while improving
the spiritual lives of both con-
David Gad-Harf, executive
director of the JCCouncil,
added, "The proviso by
Hartford that this not be a
one-time-only experience is
wonderful. The process is as
important as the perfor-
Both Temple Israel and
Hartford Memorial Baptist
will bring members of their
youth groups to the perfor-
mances. The American
Jewish Committee hopes to
gather a group of singles for
the play, as does Hartford.
"From the moment Adele
suggested this, I thought it
was a tremendous idea from
someone with a vision — a
daring to discuss the friction
between two old friends," said
Mike Wimberley, a staff writ-
er for The Michigan
Chronicle. "I think it's appro-
priate for us to sponsor such
performances. These events
are in the media. Whether we
report on Crown Heights or
our neighbors in Southfield or
Detroit, we're already in-
The two papers plan to ex-
change opinion and editorial
columns in future editions.
"Being a media outlet, we're
dealing with creative people.
With the proper vision, our op-
portunities are endless," Mr.
Wimberley said.
Arthur Horwitz, associate
publisher of The Jewish News,

"There needs to be many
more opportunities where the
black and Jewish communi-
ties can interact and learn
from each other," Mr. Horwitz
said. "Since we see our role as
expanding the knowledge of
our readers, it is both logical
and important that we, The
Jewish News, play an active
role in exposing the Jewish
community to its neighbors —
both inside and outside the
Jewish community."
"By working with The
Michigan Chronicle, there are
many opportunities to provide
a perspective to our readers
that they might not normally
get and vice versa," Mr.
Horwitz said. "There are top-
ical issues that beg for addi-
tional perspectives. By
working together, we can open
some ideas and some minds
that might remain closed."
