ment or human relationships.
The vast majority of us are
concerned for the survival of
the Jewish people. We
preserve loyalties expressed
by some participation in
Jewish life, even though
many of us fall short of the
maximum. A message of en-
couragement comes from the
Talmud: "He who begins in
the performance of a good
deed, we tell him to continue!'
He will learn how to advance,
but the beginning is of crucial
Rabbi Abraham Joshua
Herschel once said, "The level
of Jewish living must never
be stationary . . . There is no
standstill in the life of the
spirit . . . We either ascend or
go down." The question is not
whether we fulfill every
responsibility, every mitzvah
which the tradition contains.
But rather, are we moving
however slowly, to greater
reverence and understanding,
to greater participation in the
world of faith? Are we
prepared at least to listen, to
be receptive to the words and
insights of a hallowed tradi-
tion? As the sages say, it is
not incumbent upon us to
complete the work, but we are
obliged to advance it.

The Senior Adult population is one of the fastest growing
groups in the United States. The Jewish Community Center of
Metropolitan Detroit currently offers 93 different activities which
focus on the varied interests and needs of the 1500 older Jewish
adults who participate weekly at the Maple/Drake and Jimmy
Prentis Morris buildings.
The programs help to contribute an enhanced quality of life for
the seniors and thus increasing their self-esteem and prolonging
independence, Through the generosity of contributors, the Senior
Adult Patron Fund offsets the cost of providing memberships and
enrichment activities for this vital population.

> Tel Aviv (JTA) — Work in
Israeli government offices,
courts and hospitals vir-
tually ground to a halt as
more than 60,000 state
employees staged a strike.
Representatives of the
striking workers announced
at early last week that they
were beginning an open-
ended work stoppage to
pressure the Treasury into
accepting their demand for
salary increases of some 35
\_ percent, to be paid over three
The Finance Ministry has
responded by offering three
annual 3 percent increases.
The government obtained
court orders against 15 per-
cent of the strikers, ordering
/- them to return to work im-
mediately to ensure a con-
tinuation of minimum ser-
vices by essential workers.
The strikers included non-
medical workers in govern-
ment hospitals and all
> employees in ministerial of-
fices, the National Insurance
Institute, the Public Works
Department, the
Meteorological Service and
civil and religious courts.
