I the news that fits


Pass The Hollow Bread, Please

nita Samuelson, a Jewish
News reader who has
oved north to Suttons
Bay, spotted a humorous mistake
in a recent
edition of the
Traverse City
Record Eagle.
Eagle reporter
did a story about
Marifil's Bakery,
a new business
opening on 14th
Street in Tra-
verse City in the
former Hickory
Stitches embroi-
dery and crafts
store. In the
following para-
graph, the re-
porter described
a few of the
items which will Hollow or challah?
be available at
the bakery:
"Marifil's will offer a variety of
European-style pastries, includ-
ing tarts, tortes, napoleons and
opera cakes, as well as specialty


breads, such as focaccias, French
baguettes, hollow loaf Jewish
egg bread and other gourmet


Ms. Samuelson said she called
the paper to point out the chal-
lah faux pas "and suggest they
have a Judaic source to avoid
such things."

who has lived in White-
horse, Yukon, for nearly 18
years, won the annual 1,000-

from Whitehorse to Fairbanks,
Alaska. Mr. Turner, 47, earned

Just after arriving in Fair-
banks at 4:40 a.m., Mr. Turn-
er phoned his parents in
Victoria, B.C., to tell them "that
I'm the first Jewish guy to win
the race," says a report in the
Canadian Jewish News.
Mr. Turner made the gruel-
ing trip in a record 10 days and
16 hours, beating the old mark
set in 1991 by five hours. He
was 50 minutes ahead of this
year's runnerup. This was the
12th Yukon Quest, and Mr.
Turner has entered each one.
A social worker in White-
horse, Mr. Turner raises and
races dogs as a hobby. He has

Alaskan Huskies. Mr. Turner
began the Yukon Quest with 14

said there are a few Jewish fam-

He's Donated Gallons And Gallons

Since moving to
Phoenix from Long
Island, N.Y., near-
ly 30 years ago
with his wife and
three children, Mr.
Flegenheimer has
donated blood
every eighth week
except for a three-year lull be-

United Blood Services of Ari-

to Mr. Flegenheimer for being a
30-gallon blood donor.

heimer's donations
are especially ap-

Mr. Flegenheimer

helping someone who needs it
more than I do.

in itself, but now there really is
a gift in giving," said Michelle Co-
hen, creator of the campaign and

His Name Is Worth S1 Million


srael launched its Gurwin-1
TechSat satellite Tuesday,
March 28, at the Baikonur
Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, a
region 540 miles southwest of
The satellite is named for
Joseph Gurwin of New York,
who contributed $1 million to the
Technion's Norman and Helen
Asher Space Research Center.
It's believed that Mr. Gurwin

is the only living person for
whom a satellite is named.
The Israeli government says
the Gurwin-1 has no military
purposes. It is strictly for remote
sensing, communications and sci-
entific projects.
The satellite is part of a grow-
ing scientific bond between Israel
and Russia. The Technion plans
to be a partner in a 1996 Mars
exploration mission.
