Rick Goren is convinced the
schedule book of workshops of-
fered at the Coalition for the Ad-
vancement of Jewish Education
(CAJE) is larger than the Bloom-
ington, Ind., phone book.
Mr. Goren, director of youth
and high school activities at
Temple Israel, has accepted the
fact that he simply cannot attend

"There are so many classes
you want to be able to take," Mr.
Goren said. "I found four I want-

year, they know every word."
During this session on "Hatik-
vah," the contents of various na-

`The anthems of many countries
are steeped in war. Israel's is
steeped in peace," Mr. Wolin
Detroiters also were among
the presenters at CAJE.
The Agency for Jewish Edu-

Sue Stettner, director of Jew-
