only Jewish state in the world.
This is the language of the
Tanach and all the other sources
of Judaism and, last but not
least, Yiddish is the cultural
legacy of only Ashkenazic Jews,
not others.
However, as it is so elo-
quently stated in the article,
Yiddish represents a significant
part of our people's legacy and
folklore and we shouldn't let it
die.

School District's
Help Unrecognized

hi response to the article "Fire
and Ice — Jews and Gentiles
help Northgate families" (Jan.
14), I must express my great dis-
appointment in the lack of
recognition the article gave to
the non-Jewish community
members who so willingly gave
to the Northgate victims.
The Berkley School District,
comprised of a predominately
non-Jewish population, sent
fliers home with students ask-
ing for donations to be dropped
off at Avery Elementary on
Jan. 9.
I was one of the volunteers
working that day alongside a
majority of gentile volunteers.
It was the Berkley School Dis-
trict community that filled the
Resettlement Warehouse that
Sunday with truckloads of
goods. I witnessed the look of
amazement, and how over-
whelmed the three Russian Re-
settlement drivers were when
they saw the huge classrooms
and hallways filled with bags of
clothes, toys, linens, etc. from
this wonderful community.
I think Ruth Littmann, in her
article, owed this community
(who pulled together as just that
— not Jews or gentiles) more
than her last line ". . . and the
Berkley School District is col-
lecting donations."

JCC Can Help
With Special Needs

As a representative of a Fed-
eration-funded community
agency, I would like to express
my enthusiasm for the recent
attendance and presentations
at the Federation's community
forum. Having the opportunity
to hear the concerns and needs
of so many members of our com-
munity was very beneficial to
those of us who plan programs
and services for the Jewish
people of our neighborhoods.
Many of those at the forum
expressed their need for social,
recreational and educational ac-
tivities for children with special
needs. While there is an enor-
mous gap in service in this area,

I would like to invite those in
need of this service to seek out
the Jewish Community Center.
In recent years, particularly
since 1992, the Center has been
offering both inclusive and spe-
cialized programs in the areas
of child development, summer
camp, physical education, cul-
tural arts and adult services for
adults and children with special
needs.
Many people in the commu-
nity have responded to our out-
reach efforts and are now active
at the JPM and Maple/Drake
buildings. However, clearly
many of those in need are
unaware of our offerings.
While our programs and ser-
vices have limitations, our staff
is eager to discuss individual
needs and to create opportuni-
ties for participation in the
wealth of activities offered at the
Jewish Community Center.

forces in the Vatican that
demonstrate friendship with
and concern for the Jewish peo-
ple. But it is difficult for the
Jewish people to dismiss the
history of anti-Semitism that
extended over millenia in which
the Church aided and abetted
this evil. Others argue that we
should not let the burden of the
past prevent the writing of a
new chapter of dialogue and re-
spectful cooperation between
Catholics and Jews. As we see
how the scourge of anti-Semi-
tism continues to spread in the
United States and Europe, as
we note the increasing denial of
the Holocaust in our time, it be-
comes even more urgent for us
to grasp the outstretched hand
of the Church and nurture the
spirit of cooperation and mutu-
al respect. These uniting and
demanding tasks must be ad-
dressed now.
I recently saw a cartoon in
which the animals are depicted
in a long line waiting to board
Noah's Ark. The legend be-
neath the cartoon reads, "It
looks very crowded. Let's catch
the next boat." There is no next
boat. After all the centuries of
distrust and contempt, the time
has come for our voyage into a
new future. ❑
