ext time you're smearing
some of that "Hot Lady
Red" or "Drive Him Wild
Pink" stuff on your mouth, think
about the ingredients. It's noth-
ing to lick your lips about.
Cinema Beaute Cosmetics
founder Susan Krasner has
found that
many lipsticks
contain
carmine, a pig-
ment derived
from the dried
and pulverized
bodies of fe-
male cochineal
beetles (which,
in addition to
being just plain
gross, makes
the lipsticks treife).
Now Ms. Krasner, of New
City, N.Y., has developed a
kosher lipstick that bears certi-
fication from the Union of Or-
thodox Jewish Congregations of
America. And the lipsticks come

in such pro-Israel colors as "Dead
Sea Red," "Milk & Honey
Mocha," "Promised Land Pink"
and "Sinai Sienna."
Ms. Krasner said it took more
than a year to develop the lip-
sticks, which are even pareve.
"Why should a woman wear a
kosher lip-
stick?" she
asked. "Be-
cause anyone
who wears lip-
stick is most
probably eat-
ing it. Do you
ever uncon-
sciously lick
your lips while
wearing lip-
stick? Does
your lipstick come off while you
eat and you see lipstick on your
sandwich, cup or fork?"

Who Did What

es, they are all R.I.P.s
(Really Important Per-
sons) now, but there was
a time when Dustin and
Roseanne and Harrison were
simply ordinary mortals, much
like the rest of us.
So what did these Jewish
celebs do way back then, when
no one clamored for their auto-
graph?
Here, according to Ed Lu-
caire's The Celebrity Almanac,
are some of the careers of the
rich and famous before they be-
came Somebodys.
Roseanne Barr was a cock-
tail waitress and window dress-
er.
Sandra Bernhard was a
manicurist-pedicurist.
Peter Falk was an admin-
istrator for the Connecticut Bud-
get Bureau.
Harrison Ford was a car-
penter and cook.
Dustin Hoffman was a typ-
ist, waiter, psychiatric attendant
and toy demonstrator.
Walter Matthau was a ce-
ment-bag hauler, floor scrubber
and boxing instructor.
Barbra Streisand was • a
switchboard operator and the-
ater usher.
Barbara Walters was a sec-
retary for an ad agency.

parents how to help their chil-
dren actually look forward to
that first day of Jewish school.
(One contributor recommends
writing children a letter and
sticking it in their lunch bag).
"Sukkot: A Harvest of Rich-
es for Soviet
Jewish Fami-
lies" tells of a
family's tradi-
tion of bring-
ing Soviet
guests into
their sukkah,
where one
new immi-
grant says, "In
spite of diffi-
culties, eter-
nal feeling
that I am a
Jew, rve loved
this country
(the former
Soviet Union).
Yet, I left. Why? For the sake of
money, delicious food, fancy
clothes? No, I didn't. I would
never do it for such poor rea-
sons. I did it for my son's fu-
ture."

Righteous Gentile Is Honored

ad Vashem recently hon-
ored a German Catholic
woman who, with her
husband, saved the lives of more
than 1,000 Polish Jews during
World War II.
"Thank you for remembering
me. I did what I could," said Em-
ilie Schindler, 85, who was des-
ignated as a Righteous
Among the Nations.
The Schindlers'
heroism is the subject
of a movie, Schindler's
List, directed by
Steven Spielberg,
which will be released
in December.
During the Nazi occupation
of Poland, Oskar Schindler op-
erated a Crackow enamelware
factory that produced kitchen
equipment for the German
army and employed hundreds
of Jews. Resisting efforts to shut
his factory and ship his people
to Nazi death camps, Mr.
Schindler insisted that his Jew-
ish employees were skilled

workers essential to the Ger-
man war effort.
Finally, however, the Nazis
closed the factory and ordered
its employees to Auschwitz.
Fighting the order, Mr.
Schindler compiled a list of
1,200 "indispensable" Jewish
workers and successfully de-
manded that they be
transferred to a new
factory he was opening
in Czechoslovakia.
Today, many of
those former employ-
ees are still alive, re-
siding in Israel, the
United States, Aus-
tralia and South America.
"I'm one of those who sur-
vived thanks to the Schindlers,"
said Moshe Beisky, a former Is-
raeli Supreme Court judge. "To
this day I preserve the image of
Mrs. Schindler, who day after
day brought us heavy pots of
soup that she cooked by herself
with foods she got at great risk
in the black market."
