Robert Reich backing NAFTA.


Robert Reich
was a child, his fa-
ther explained that
the family was not
welcome in their hometown of
South Salem, N.Y.
They were the only Jews.
It was the late 1940s, and
the Reich family could not join
the local tennis or golf clubs.
Even during high school in the
early 1960s, gentile girls were
forbidden to date Mr. Reich.
"I grew up feeling the effects
of prejudice," Mr. Reich said
this week. "This has perhaps
made me better able to em-
pathize with others who feel
that way."
The U.S. secretary of labor
flew into Detroit from Wash-
ington on Sunday to help cel-
ebrate the 30th anniversary of
the Birmingham Temple.
He charmed the 300-person
crowd by interjecting humor-
ous tales about his height (he
is just shy of 5 feet) with a sub-
tle sales pitch for the North
American Free Trade Agree-
ment. He also addressed the
Clinton administration's plan
to reinvent government.
Earlier in the day, the labor
secretary attended a fund-rais-
er for U.S. Rep. Sander Levin,
D-Southfield. And on Monday,
he was the featured guest at a
luncheon for the Economic
Club of Detroit.
After he was introduced by
Assistant Secretary of Labor
Doug Ross, a member of the
Birmingham Temple who
arranged the event, Mr. Reich
put his arm around Mr. Ross,
who stands about 5 feet 7 inch-
"Do we look like big gov-
ernment?" he asked.
Mr. Reich began his ex-
temporaneous address by de-

scribing the mood at the White
House during the signing of
the historic Sept. 13 peace ac-
cord between Israel and the
Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation. "As they shook hands,
it felt like a current of elec-
tricity jolted the White House
And he said NAFTA, which
would lift tariffs on trade be-
tween the United States,
Canada and Mexico, has be-
come a "symbol more than an
economic phenomenon."
Robert Reich was born in
Scranton, Pa., in 1946, and
raised in a rural town just
north of New York City. Being
the only Jewish child in the
community, he had no formal
religiou4 education. But his
family celebrated Jewish hol-
idays, and they had discus-
sions at home about the
importance of Judaism.
He attended elementary
and high school before the U.S.
Supreme Court landmark de-
cision mandating the separa-
tion of church and state in the

"I was very short
and I always
played baby Jesus
in the annual
Christmas pageant.
I felt guilty
about it.
And I had long
conversations with
my parents.
I always wanted
to make sure I was
not violating
Jewish laws."

"I was very short, and I al-
ways played baby Jesus in the
annual Christmas pageant,"
he recalled in an interview. "I
felt guilty about it. And I had
long conversations with my
parents. I always wanted to
make sure I was not violating
Jewish laws."
He remembers hearing
about the Holocaust.
"Perhaps being isolated

and being aware of the Holo-
