Educators discuss ways to teach
the Arab-Israeli crisis.

LESLEY PEARL STAFF WRITER

W

hen the Gulf War
broke out in 1991,
local congrega-
tional schools
herded their stu-
dents into one room to watch
CNN.
Ira Wise hopes the same is
not done in response to the mas-
sacre of Palestinians by Dr.

"In some ways, this situation
is just another type of crisis, like
the Gulf War, like the assassi-
nation of (Jewish Defense
League founder) Meir Kahane.
I think what we need to talk to
our kids about is the Jewish val-
ue on life.
"Yes, the Torah does give us
the ability to wage war. But this
wasn't war, it was a violent
act of terrorism. We need to
admit that and ask, 'What is
the right thing to do? "
Mr. Wise does not antici-
pate a school-wide program
to discuss the incident.
However, he is putting to-
gether a list of questions and
texts for teachers to use in
the classroom.
Most educators in the com-
munity agree the killings by
Dr. Goldstein must be ad-
dressed and discussed —
along with fanaticism, histo-
ry and Jewish texts — but
should not be the central
teaching.
"If we threw our regular
curriculum out the window
every time a madman went
berserk, we wouldn't have
anyone left who knew how to
read Torah," Mr. Wise said.
"We also need to teach what
living a proper Jewish life
means."

"It was Wise discuss ways
a mistake to teach tragic
(watching events to their
CNN). We students.
viewed the
situation, sent the students
home and didn't help them
process the information,"
said Mr. Wise, education di-
rector at Temple Emanu-El.
"We lost the opportunity to
teach."
Mr. Wise does not suggest
the murders Feb. 25, which
occurred in a Hebron

holy month of Ramadan, be
ignored. Instead, he believes
it must be taught in proper
context.

MichCon knows natural gas is
the fuel of the future. We're
equally convinced that our
diverse workforce is the basis
for our past accomplishments
and the fuel that will enable us
to become the best natural gas
company in the industry.

Today, MichCon is Michigan's
largest natural gas distribution,
transmission and storage com-
pany, and the fifth largest
in the nation. We serve 3.5
million residents in 465 com-
munities. Our subsidiaries are
involved in real estate develop-
ment, buying and selling nat-
ural gas in the open market
and providing engineering
services. In short, we're a
diversified company offering a
wide range of career options.

We've always felt that it's
simply good business to seek
out and hire the best people in
every discipline. As a result,
we have a workplace that
embraces diversity and equal
opportunity in gender, race,

age and cul-
tural and
ethnic back-
grounds.
This allows
us to benefit
from the
perspectives, energy and ideas
of people from all walks of life.

Our environment is enriched
by the differences among our
employees and driven by their
singularity of purpose when it
comes to providing customers
with an exceptionally high
quality of service. We are
proud of what we have
achieved and dedicated to
remaining a prototype for the
bias free workplace of the 21st
century.
