Therefore, he waited until
he arrived in the United
States to take advantage
of what many American
teens take for granted:
brit.
After his own brit, Dima
wanted to afford others,
like Philip, a similar
opportunity. He called
NCSY's Rabbi Freedman,
and together they con-
vinced other new
American boys to get cir-
cumcised.
"The reason for going
through with it is twofold.
One, brit reaffirms the
aged covenant between
Abraham and God and ful-
fills the mitzvah of brit.
God made a covenant. He
would give (the Jews)
their homeland, Israel,
and they would keep this
mitzvah sacred," Rabbi
Freedman said.
"The other reason is
that brit gives the new
American males a feeling

of belonging, of being an
American Jew," he added.
"I feel more like a nor-
mal American Jew now,"
Philip said. ❑

Group To Aid
Sarajevo's Children

New York (JTA) — As
NATO prepared to launch
air strikes against Serbian
forces choking Sarajevo, an
American Jewish relief
agency announced this week
that it was making
emergency funds available
to provide medical aid to
children in the besieged
Bosnian capital.
The American Jewish
Joint Distribution Com-
mittee said that it would
allocate $25,000 in
emergency funds to provide
medical trauma treatment
to children unable to receive
it because of the lack of elec-
tricity and medical supplies
in Sarajevo.
The move came in the
wake of the widespread
publicity about 5-year-old
Irma Hadzimuratovic, who
was flown from Sarajevo to
London after being seriously
wounded in a shelling attack
that killed her mother.
The funds - will be made
available to all children in
the war- torn city, regardless
of their religious or ethnic
background.
The move came after the
hospital in Sarajevo put a
call through to JDC's New
York headquarters and de-
scribed the urgent need to
assist the growing numbers
of wounded children.

In a separate development,
the American Task Force for
Bosnia — a coalition in-
cluding Jewish, Christian,
Muslim and Arab-American
groups — held a news con-
ference in Washington last
week to mark the one-year
anniversary since then-
candidate Bill Clinton spoke
out against Serbian killings
of Bosnian Muslims and
others.
Jewish groups, seeing
parallels between Serbian
policies of "ethnic cleans-
ing" in Bosnia-Herzegovina
and the Nazi Holocaust,
have been involved for mon-
ths in efforts to push the
Clinton administration .
The task force called for
steps including recognizing
"ethnic cleansing" as
genocide and using air
strikes to protect civilians.
Jewish and Arab-
American leaders at the
news conference mentioned
that the effort to help
Bosnia's Muslims has
brought the two com-
munities closer together.
Jewish groups par-
ticipating in the joint news
conference were the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress, Anti-
Defamation League, B'nai
B'rith and the Union of
American Hebrew Con-
gregations. ❑
