British. More Knowledgeable
Than Americans About Holocaust

/

J .

dults in Great
Britain have signifi-
antly more knowl-
edge about the Holocaust
than do Americans and
are far less likely than
Americans to be open to
the idea that the
Holocaust never took
place, according to a new
survey conducted by
Gallup of Great Britain.
The survey questions
were identical to those
asked of Americans in an
American Jewish
Committee survey last
April.
Gallup of Great Britain
last month interviewed
1,025 respondents who

constitute a representative
national sample of'British
men and women. When
asked what the term "the
Holocaust" referred to, 33
percent of British adults,
compared to 24 percent of
American adults, men-
tioned the Nazis' murder
of Jews. In addition, 41
percent of British adults,
compared to 35 percent of
American adults, knew
that 6 million Jews died in
the Holocaust, while 76
percent of British adults
and 62 percent of
American adults knew
that Auschwitz, Dachau
and Treblinka were death
camps.

Older Moms And Dads: Unite

ou were the talk of
the town after you
threw a bowl of
Jello at your neighbor
when she gasped, "At
your age!" following the
announcement of your
great news. But be
assured more than a
handful of local parents
support you. Now you
can meet them.
A support group for
first-time parents 35 and
older is forming under
the auspices of the
Shaarey Zedek Parenting

in
West
Center
Bloomfield. The group
will consider such topics
as handling the stress of
parenting young children
when most of your
friends' sons and daugh-
ters are in high school.
The Parenting Center
also is interested in
forming a group for par-
ents of premature
infants.
For information on
either group, call Ruth
Beresh at the Parenting
Center, 681-5353.

Seminary Of The Deaf Adds Students'

C

A Temple You
Can Bank On

ou began your day
by making a deposit
in the drive-thru at
your bank. Then you
picked up a cup of coffee at
the drive-thru at the fast-
food joint. Next you hur-
ried to your neighborhood
drive-thru synagogue for
some early morning daven-
ing.
Yes,
i t ' s
really
true.
The world's first
drive-thru synagogue is
located in the California
Club Mall Outside North
Miami, Calif. The facility
is housed in a former
bank, where the lobby
became the sanctuary and
the tellers' cages now serve
as book repositories.
Rosh
"During
Hashanah and
Yom Kip-
pur we're
especially
busy," Rab-
bi Dovid
Bryn told Philadelphia's
Inside magazine. "At other
times, congregants pass
through the outdoor
teller's window, ring the
bell for the rabbi, deposit a
donation and receive a
receipt and a prayer."
No word yet on whether
the bank
offers this
time-saving
feature:
drive-thru sermons. Just
send your Visa or Master
Card (the one that's so
worldly, so welcome)
through that little plastic
tube and get back a ser-
mon on any number of top-
ics!
