Rabbi Amy Bigman ad-
dressed issues of social action
and personal responsibility
within Judaism.
Sherry Feldman and Karen
Jacobson, MJAC facilitators
trained this fall, said they like
the idea of turning over certain
areas of discussion to the ex-
`The Jewish content, discus-
sion of Midrash and Torah as it
plays a role, should come from
the rabbi. It lends a certain
knowledge and credibility," Ms.
Feldman said.
At Norup Middle School in
Oak Park, Missy Richardson al-
ready is learning about AIDS in

her personal development class.
But she didn't watch a condom
demonstration or have the op-
portunity for immediate inter-
action with her mother, as she
did at the temple.
"It's OK, my mom being
here," Missy said.
Her mother, Gail, added, "I
think the temple is the appro-
priate place to learn together
and discuss this issue. My
daughter and I didn't have any
problems discussing AIDS be-
fore. But if we did, I think the
facilitation of this program
might help."
MJAC retains a core of vol-
unteers which will facilitate up-
coming programs at about half
a dozen temples and syna-
gogues this year. ❑

Kornwise Weekend
Wants To Expand



or six years, Kornwise
Weekend has existed as
an entity unto itself. In
1994, Tova Dorfman
hopes to use it as merely a be-
Ms. Dorfman, teen program
coordinator of the Agency for
Jewish Education (AJE), sup-
ports the concept of the week-
end — gathering Jewish teens
of all denominations to learn
about each other and work to-
gether on social action projects.
However, she believes ongoing
interaction is needed.
"For the weekend, we're ex-
amining diversity between
movements while working to-
gether toward community pro-
jects. Maintaining movement
and individual personalities is
key," Ms. Dorfman said.
Kornwise will be used as a
kickoff to inter-movement ac-
tivity that will be facilitated by
a youth consortium now being
formed. The intention is to cre-
ate a young Jewish voice for De-
troit while connecting Orthodox,
Reform, Conservative and Hu-
manist Jews.

"When we talk about issues
of continuity, this is our target
audience. We need to start talk-
ing now about Jewish values,
about intermarriage, about
what happens when you be-
come involved with a non-Jew,"
Ms. Dorfman said. "This is the
age when independence begins,
important choices are being
made and we want them to be

"No one has the
answer to the
Jewish continuity

Jewishly influenced."
Ms. Dorfman emphasized
the weekend, and the forming
of the consortium, will be fo-
cused on creating new models
for interaction within the move-
"Every type of Jew will agree
that there are common goals we
need to work toward," Ms. Dorf-
