resources. Members decided
that waiting until students
are in college to deal with is-
sues of anti-Semitism and
anti-Israel sentiment is too
And so the idea of a college
fair was born.
The fair is co-sponsored by
The Jewish News and fi-
nanced by a grant from the
Max M. Fisher Foundation.
"Most students are famil-
iar with college nights and re-
cruiters," Mr. Wallach said.
"But recruiters don't, or can't,
tell you about life on campus
from a Jewish student per-
spective. We hope to make
students aware of the kinds
of issues which occur on col-
lege campuses and assist
them in making choices of
where to attend school."
The program will be divid-
ed into three sections — a per-
formance by the "Talk To Us"
theater troupe, a panel dis-
cussion with students and fac-
ulty from various colleges in
Michigan, and an opportuni-
ty to visit booths with student
representatives from sever-
al schools in the state.
"Talk To Us" is a group of
10 students who perform in-
teractive skits. Formed in
1987 in Ann Arbor, "Talk To

"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."

he Jewish Faculty
and Staff Association
at Michigan State
University responded
to a controversial speech
this month with its first
letter to the editor of the
school paper, The State
The letter criticized radi-
cal black activist Kwame
Toure (formerly Stokely
Carmichael), who was
invited as a speaker by the
university-funded Black
History Month Committee.
Part of JFSA's letter
"(Toure's) remarks at
MSU included his beliefs
that all Jewish organiza-
tions are controlled by
Zionists, that Zionists have
infiltrated — and work
against — all black organi-
zations, that Zionists are
`slimy pigs,' that they con-
trol the Democratic Party
and so on.
"Such nonsense would be
laughable if it were not

designed to foul the spirit
of diversity on campus and
to divide people who might
well work together outside
the framwork of Toure's
scapegoating ideology."

The letter ran in The
State News on March 15.
"We thought that a letter
to the editor was an appro-
priate approach in a uni-
versity community," said
Professor Joyce Ladenson,
director of the Women's -\
Studies program at MSU
and a member of JFSA.
Rosenthal, who drafted the
letter in conjunction with
other JFSA members, said
he hopes black and Jewish
faculty will meet to discuss
the racial and religious
issues that have been in
the spotlight recently.
JFSA neither denies Mr.
Toure's right to speak, nor
objects to the university's
funding of the activity, said
Professor Rosenthal. ❑
