I

nternationally renowned vio-
linist Itzhak Perlman and his
daughter, pianist Nava Frost,
gave a special performance re-
cently for the young patients at
the Children's Medical Center of
Israel (CMCI) in Petah Tikva.
The Israeli-born virtuoso, who
was in Israel to perform with the
Israel Philharmonic Orchestra,
appeared at the request of the
hospital's founder, Irving Schnei-
der of New York.
Accompanied by his daughter,
Mr. Perlman played a series of
classical pieces and then spent
more than two hours fielding
questions from the more than 400
children in the audience, many
of whom had to be helped to the
concert by their parents or by
members of the CMCI medical
staff.
When asked how he coped
with the polio that crippled him

Please join us on May 6 as we celebrate
Mother's Day! Meet the doctor, clinical
nurse practitioner and our friendly staff.
We look forward to seeing you.

when he was a 4-year-old living
in Tel Aviv, the violinist replied:
"They told me that I wouldn't
be able to have an international
career because of the polio. That
made me try even harder."
When another child asked
about the limitations his physi-
cal condition imposes, Perlman
answered: "I don't spend much
time thinking about what I can't
do, but rather about what I can
do."
"The idea behind Mr. Perl-
man's performance here was to
present a man who, despite suf-
fering from polio, has built an in-
ternational career," said Professor
Yehuda Danon, director of the
CMCI. "We are grateful to this
virtuoso of the violin for the won-
derful concert he performed and
for the encouragement he gave to
our children." ❑

German Minister
Boosts The Far Right

Bonn (JTA) — German
Interior Minister Manfred
Kanther has been sharply
criticized for allegedly plan-
ning to remove the far-right
Republican party from the
list of political extremist
groups in Germany.
Several leading officials of
the opposition Social Dem-
ocratic Party said last week
that Mr. Kanther was
"playing with fire" and
"creating an atmosphere
which would help to make

neo - Nazi groups more ac-
ceptable."
Mr. Kanther, a member of
the ruling Christian Dem-
ocratic Union, was schedul-
ed this week to present the
yearly government report on
political extremism in Ger-
many.
A draft of the document
had been made available to
state governments, and this
apparently triggered the
criticism of Mr. Kanther's
plans.
