all, that's what we do. We'll tell them all about what's happening in
their hometown, the nation and world. We'll give them stimulating
viewpoints, and interesting features. But most of all, we'll bring
them home every week. And that's good news for everyone.

and his opposition to
NAFTA to the Federation
group.
In Oak Park, he talked •
with Carol Kaczander at
Jewish Information Service,
checked out the new JCC
25-yard swimming pool, and
asked Soviet Americans
questions about life in the
former Soviet Union.
Neighborhood Project
Director Rhoda Raderman
escorted Mr. Riegle on the
final leg of his tour with a
trip to Borenstein's book
shop, Zeman's kosher bak-

restaurant.
Mr. Riegle, who serves
on the Special Senate
Committee on Aging, also
met with Ms. Goldsmith,
who is waiting to hear if
JFA will receive a Health
and Urban Development
grant for 80 more senior
housing units. He offered to
help secure a grant.
"He heard us loud and
clear," Ms. Goldsmith said.
"He said he is lobbying to

Some members of the
community, who declined to
comment on the record,
were skeptical of the visit,
saying Mr. Riegle, who has
served in the House and
Senate since he was 29, is
too immersed in the system.
They question his sincerity.
Others disagree, saying
the Jewish. community
needs to understand the
importance of seniority on
Capitol Hill. Mr. Riegle
serves on three major com-
mittees, one of which he
chairs.
"If we don't elect Sen.
Riegle, Michigan never
again will have a committee
chairman fighting for our
state," said community aci-
tivist Steven Victor, a local
organizer for the American-
Israel Public Affairs
Committee.
"He is always in our cor-
ner on Israel," Mr. Victor
added. "And he really works
hard for Michigan."



Oak Park Man Finds
Message Of Hate

JENNIFER FINER JEWISH NEWS INTERN

ak Park resident
Peter Cooper does not
know why he was the
recipient of literature
preaching white supremacy.
He can only guess that
whoever put the informa-
tion on his car targeted him
because of a Star of David
sun catcher he has dis-
played in the front window
of his house, or because of
his work with AIDS support
organizations.
"I have not heard of this
happening to anyone else,"
Mr. Cooper said.
Sometime during the
night on Aug. 17, someone
placed a business-sized card
on Mr. Cooper's car which
advocated: "Building a
Better World for Future
Aryan Generations." The
card had a swastika and
included a post office box in
Milwaukee, Wis., to write
for more information.
Richard
Lobenthal,
Michigan regional director
of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith,
described the incident as
"occasional and sporadic."
"What you're finding is
someone locally is buying
this material and distribut-
ing it," he said. "They gener-
ally operate by keeping

then putting them on cars
or in mailboxes."
Other incidents have
been reported in Royal Oak
and Saginaw, according to
Mr. Lobenthal, who said
Jews have been not been

material.
"We are concerned any-
time something like this
happens but it does not nec-
essarily represent a new or
additional threat," Mr.
Lobenthal said. "It is impor-
tant to know about these
incidents for assessment
and evaluation purposes."
In the meantime, Mr.
Cooper is not overly con-
cerned he is a victim of
hate.
"Right now, it's more a
matter of curiosity," he said.
"If they started burning
swastikas, then I'm going to
get worried." ❑
