to Dallas, you know your chil-
dren can pick up their educa-
tion and move with it intact."
Dr. Smiley added that it's
also as important that students
and parents around the coun-
try know who is going to be
teaching their children. The
standard of a Jewishly well-ed-
ucated teacher is what, he said,
parents now not only want but
are demanding from schools
such as Hillel and others.
His goal is to help principals
nationally further and better
articulate how Conservative
day schools can be more spiri-
tual and can be more success-
ful in defining Conservative
Judaism to their constituencies.
Marty Gene, Hillel's presi-
dent, concurred with his head-
master's goals. "Hillel parents,"
he said, "are not just looking
for the school to guide them as
Conservative Jews. The par-
ents are more or less demand-
ing direction. Dr. Smiley has
directed the school to be that
guide. It's nice to have young
people such as Mark in the
community being recognized
nationally for the work they are
doing."

"We know that we
can have an impact
in the areas of
assimilation and
intermarriage."

Dr. Smiley said parents
know now that day schools are
important to Jewish survival.
But parents also want to know
at times why that survival is
important, why their children
should be educated Jewishly.
It's not just about social ac-
tion, feeding the hungry, hous-
ing the poor, he added. Parents
want their children to learn
about acts that are sacredly

Jewish.
"We understand that it's
much more relevant now to ex-
plain the religious views of
Judaism to students and their
parents," said Dr. Smiley. "We
have 13 teachers studying
Torah and learning tefilot on
their own. The religious mes-
sage of the Conservative day
school is no longer cultural, it's
spiritual.
"Conservative day schools
are teaching Torah and tefilot
which are God's laws. Parents
now as well as children are in-
fluenced by Judaism. Con-
servative parents are finding
that Judaism has a lot to offer
to help them lead their lives."
Dr. Smiley's goal as presi-
dent of the national organiza-
tion is for the Schechter schools
to create meaningful Jewish ex-
periences for their families, in-
cluding deeply religious
experiences.
As president, Dr. Smiley will
be based at Hillel, but will trav-
el from time to time around the
country. Many of the Schechter
schools, he said, are experienc-
ing growth. Issues of physical
space, the education of teach-
ers, the upgrading of Judaic
studies programs and how big
the schools should get are fore-
most on the Schechter plate.
Continuity is also a major is-
sue for the Schechter schools as
part of the Conservative move-
ment, he said.
"We know that we can have
an impact in the area of assim-
ilation and intermarriage," said
Dr. Smiley. "Schechter schools,
including Hillel, take that im-
pact seriously.
"Already, we're seeing many
of our students who came
through schools such as Hillel
taking on teaching and admin-
istrative positions in our
schools. We're continuing to
grow stronger. Our movement
demands it. But what's so won-
derful now, our parents de-
mand it as well." ❑

Palestinian Death Toll
Up In Territories

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
number of Palestinians
killed by Israeli security
forces in the territories has
increased during each of the
past three years, according
to the Israeli human rights
organization B'Tselem.
From Dec. 8, 1992, to Dec.
8 of this year — the sixth
year of the Palestinian
uprising, or intifada — 165
Palestinians were killed by
members of Israel's security
forces.

The total is up from 121 in
the previous year, and 97 in
the year before that. It is
lower, however, than the
death tolls during the first
two years of the intifada.
In the first year of the
uprising, there were 284 Pa-
lestinian deaths, and 300 in
the second.
B'Tselem also reported
that between Sept. 13 of this
year, there were 36 Israeli and
Palestinian deaths in the terri-
tories. ❑
