The fifth-grade classes of
Temple Beth El, with'the help
of Jewish Experiences For Fam-
ilies, are finishing a quilt of their
own as part of a tzedakah pro-
gram.
All the blankets created lo-
cally remain in the Detroit area.
"I think working on the quilts
brings AIDS information to

families in a non-threatening
way. While you're crawling
around on the floor with colored
squares of fabric, you can start
discussions with your children.
Plus, this is a tangible project.
Even young children can iden-
tify with it," Ms. Bricker said.
"When you make a NAMES
Project panel, it's for someone
who died. This helps bring com-
fort to someone still alive." El

he Jewish Ensemble The-
atre (JET) is using a
$9,000 grant from the
Michigan Council for the
Arts and Cultural Affairs
(MCACA) to establish a long-
range plan for its programs. Af-
ter the plan is in place, JET
becomes eligible to apply for de-
velopment dollars allocated by
the council.
With funds made available
through the Arts Organiza-
tional and Planning Grant,
JET hired two consultants, who
earlier this month conducted
closed-door meetings to explore
ideas for the theater and pro-
ject implementation resources.
JET artistic director Evelyn
Orbach and about 15 board
members voiced their recom-
mendations during two, day-
long sessions facilitated by
Nello McDaniel of Arts Action
Research in New York and
Barbara (Bunny) Goldman
Kratchman, director of the not-
for-profit division of Stone, Au-
gust, Baker Communications
and former executive director
of MCACA.
"Once we have written a
plan, we can apply for an Arts
Organizational Development
Grant," said Ms. Orbach, who
has directed the theater since
its incorporation five years ago
as a non-profit organization.
"An additional grant would
provide us with state funds
that we have to match with
new money or new in-kind ser-
vices (professional work done
on a voluntary basis and given
a cash value). The strategic
plan is used to outline how this
would be done."
For example, if JET were
successful in gaining a first-
year grant of $25,000, the max-
imum amount, the theater
would need a strategy to pro-
vide a matching $25,000 using
both money and in- kind ser-
vices.
To receive an additional, sec-
ond-year grant of $25,000, the
theater would have to raise
$50,000 with only one-third of

that coming from in-kind ser-
vices. A third-year, $25,000
grant would require $75,000
from JET with only one-fourth
of that amount from in-kind
services.
"We are in competition for
funds with not-for-profit the-
aters around the state," Ms. Or-
bach said. "The state allots
these funds with the goal of
making organizations self- sup-
porting, and we want to submit
our application by the begin-
ning of May."
Both consultants acted as
meeting facilitators to encour-
age free discussion of innova-
tive ideas. Before convening all
participants as a group, con-
sultants talked with each per-
son on a one-to-one basis.
Benson Barr and Phoebe
Mainster are two JET board
members who attended the
meetings and found them very
productive.
Both have taken part in sim-
ilar planning sessions con-
ducted by other organizations.
Mr. Barr worked with a group
representing a large law firm,
and Dr. Mainster worked with
fellow faculty members at
Wayne State University.
"I think our meetings were
very worthwhile and handled
very well," said Mr. Barr, who
has been on the JET board
since 1992. "People participat-
ed vigorously, and I think any
organization can benefit from
the process of long-term plan-
ning."
Dr. Mainster, who has been
a director since JET was start-
ed, appreciated the opportuni-
ty to get a more in-depth
knowledge of the other direc-
tors and their points of view.
"We left the meetings with a
sense of accomplishment and
renewal as well as greater re-
spect for each other," said Dr.
Mainster, who also is a mem-
ber of the Understudies, the
auxiliary arm of the Wayne
State University Hilberry The-
atre.
