Staying in public office is not
a long-term plan for most of these
lawmakers, who said they would
like to eventually pursue other
Sen. Faxon announced this
week that he will not seek an-
other term in office this year. "Be-
ing among the minority in the
Senate is frustrating. The best
part of the job is being in the dis-
trict (which would change this
election due to redistricting).
Lansing is frustrating and unre-
warding. I'm old enough that I
can get retirement," said Sen.
Faxon. Once he leaves, he would
like to focus more of his attention
on the arts and the Internation-
"I never say never, but 10
years from now I don't think I
will be in office," said Rep.

I'll be or what I'll do. I do know
I'd like to continue writing."
Sen. Honigman is sure about
one thing he would like to do in
the future — take time to write
Sen. Levin said politics, either
in or out of office, always will be
a part of his life. But, once out of
office, he'd like to teach — either
at a college or law school.
His brother hopes to remain in
Washington for the forseeable
future, although he tossed out the
idea of one day working with
"I always said if only kids could
vote, I would never lose," said
Rep. Levin. "As for the future, I
still feel very young. There is a lot
that needs to be done and I enjoy
Rep. Gubow's long-term devo-
tion to politics remains firm, as
"I'm committed to this type of
public service," he said.
Sen. Pollack said, "Twenty
years from now, I'll be 71, retired
from politics and living abroad
for some period, perhaps in a
developing country. I think it
would be nice to live in Israel for
some period of time. I also see my-

London — Ontario, that is, — is normally a
conservative town. But one synagogue
has changed that.
MARA KOVEN SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS
he announcement in the
Jan. 11, 1994, edition of the
Congregation Or Shalom
Bulletin was brief and
straightforward: "All members
[men and women] of Congrega-
tion Or Shalom are encouraged
to perform the mitzvah of tefill-
in, at daily services."
With that notice, the 300-fam-
ily synagogue became the first
Conservative synagogue in the
Province of Ontario — and one of
the first in all of Canada — to al-
low women to wear tefillin dur-
ing morning prayers. While
several women — who have been
counted as part of the minyan at
Or Shalom for some time — at-
tend the shacharit service, only
a couple actually wear tefillin.
While not out of character for
Or Shalom, inviting women to
put on tefillin was a bit daring for
London's 2,500-member Jewish
community — normally a good
deal more tradition-bound.
London — a city of 381,000 in
southwestern Ontario midway
between Toronto and Detroit —
has a very WASPy, upper crust
feel to it despite the recent influx
of Poles, Cambodians and Kurds.
The British influence is every-
where: one can boat on the
Thames River, walk on Oxford or
Picadilly streets or visit nearby
Stratford to see the Shakespeare
London's Jewish community is
largely from elsewhere. Many are
English speakers who left Mon-
