NAME

McPherson, the Democratic in-
cumbent and now the only formal
candidate left in the 25th District.
"Mr. Miller's conduct was rep-
rehensible," said Mr. Patterson,
who immediately after the inci-
dent drafted his endorsement let-
ter. "His name will appear on the
ballot. All we can do is publicly
ostracize him."
According to Mr. Alexander,
Mr. Miller made similar remarks
about getting Jews out of office
on June 22 during a meeting with
staff members at Republican
headquarters.
"This is the most distressing
thing I've dealt with in my six
years as county chair," Mr.
Alexander said. "I will not toler-
ate intolerance."

a 2 percent salary increase to
staff, a $16,000 subsidy to fund
teacher participation in the na-
tional Coalition on Alternatives
in Jewish Education (CAJE) con-
ference, and $5,000 to
Congregation Beth Shalom to
compensate for AJE's closing of
the Community Jewish High
School earlier this year.
Said AJE's Mr. Berlow, "We're
less than euphoric about paying
for things that before did not
come out of our operating bud-
get," such as the CAJE confer-
ence.
Allan Nachman, chairman of
Federation's implementation
committee of the Giles report,
said the ME was asked to pick
up Beth Shalom's costs rather
than Federation providing tran-
sition funds for two reasons: ME
is no longer running a high school
and the synagogue's own pro-
gram is small in numbers.
"Eight hundred and fifty thou-
sand dollars is a significant
amount of money. ME users be-
lieve the agency is doing a solid
job. It's a fair allocation with a
down Campaign," Mr. Nachman
said.
Federation's Allied Jewish
Campaign final tally was $26 mil-
lion. Last year, it raised $26.2
million.
Federation's decision to devote
education dollars to day schools
is aimed at assisting in scholar-
ships.
"It is my hope the Federation
leadership will look at all formal
education — trips to Israel, con-
gregational and day schools — as
the highest priority," said Dr.
Mark Smiley, Hillel headmaster.
Dr. Smiley also acts as chair-
man of the Education
Consortium on Jewish
Education, a committee of lay
leaders and professionals which
oversees education decisions in
response to the Giles report. As
such, he is concerned with edu-
cation allocations across the
board.
"There is a mixed message. I

understand Federation's plan-
ning committee looks at $850,000
this year and last year as the re-
sult of a flat Campaign. However,
this is the time and opportunity
to implement the Giles report and
improve synagogue-based edu-
cation. The Federation has es-
sentially asked the AJE to do that
with less funds. If they (staff
members of the AJE) have to pull
back on programs, it's a loss," Dr.
Smiley said.
"In my opinion, it is much too
early for anyone to assess the suc-
cess or weakness of the delivery
of services to the synagogue
schools by the AJE."
In talking with religious school
directors and principals, Dr.
Smiley has had positive feedback
regarding programming and sup-
port received during this "em-
bryonic year" for ME.
"There have been many ex-
amples of success that should

have been rewarded, though."
Fran Perlman, education di-
rector at Temple Israel, agrees.
"I feel very fortunate to have
the ME providing the services it
does. Until last year, I had to do
it all on my own," she said. "I'm
disappointed in the funding de-
cision. It's short-sighted."
Ira Wise, Temple Emanu-El
educator, added, "I don't think
anyone was operating in bad
faith, but I am concerned about
the message. The ME needs the
opportunity to do its job. The
money the day schools got is
completely appropriate.
"However, there are about
1,700 children in day schools and
5,000 in congregation and sup-
plementary schools. Federation
serves these children only
through the ME." 111

Mr. Alexander sent a letter to
Mr. Miller quoting the 1992
Republican Party platform:
"Bigotry and prejudice have no
place in American life."
The letter went on to say:
"Mr. Miller, your actions belie
the high standards for which
our party strives. Please be
advised that you are no longer
welcome at Republican head-
quarters.
I will personally disavow you
as a Republican candidate and
ask other Republican leaders to
do the same."
Mr. Alexander said his own ac-
tions have been supported by
Republican leaders Gov. John
Engler and U.S. Rep. Joe
Knollenberg. ❑
