JFS Addressing

ne year ago, Jewish Fam-
ily Service began receiving
grant monies to run a sup-
port group for friends and
family members of individuals
who are HIV positive or have
AIDS.
While some of the agency's
clients are infected with the dis-
ease, J FS did not have the fund-

0

ing to solicit and provide
reduced-fee counseling to the
AIDS population.
Now, thanks to a one-year,
$14,000 grant from the Michigan
AIDS Fund, JFS plans to offer
those services.
Once JFS has several referrals
to the program, it hopes to es-
tablish a group setting for
HIV/AIDS clients.

The grant also will fund a
transportation service to take
clients to medical and counsel-
ing appointments. It also will pay
for staff HIV/AIDS education.
Its funding source, the Michi-
gan AIDS Fund, was founded by
the Council of Michigan Foun-
dations, a consortium of private
and corporate foundations.
"We want to do out-
reach to create aware-
ness about our
HIV/AIDS programs,
and this is a good
chance for us to do
that," said Reuben Rot-
man, the director of
Community Resource
Development with JFS.
"It's a matter of
spending time creating
awareness in the AIDS
community."
JFS does not expect
to receive a lot of refer-
rals because, based on
past experience, it has
seen members of the
HIV/AIDS Jewish
community typically
have a hard time going
to a Jewish agency for
help.
"It's a Catch-22,"
said Fay Rosen, a JFS
clinical social worker.
"People want to be with others
who have a mutual understand-
ing because they come from the
same background. On the other
hand, there is no question they
feel a stigma (and are fearful
someone they know within the
Jewish community will find out).
It's something each and every
person has to make his or her
own decision about." O

Temple Leaders Look
To Heal Rifts

JILL DAVIDSON SKLAR STAFF WRITER

ust a few weeks ago, they
were rivals vying for the
presidency of Temple Beth
El.
Now they are partners, en-
couraging people to remain mem-
bers of the temple and to share
in a spiritual renewal.
In a letter mailed last week to
congregants, both president John
Kamins and Curtis Kuttnauer,
the leader of the opposition slate,
pleaded with congregants to re-

j

new their memberships.
"Stay with Beth El and be a
part of the healing and rebuild-
ing, the spiritual revitalization
and growth that have already be-
gun," the letter said. "Stay and
actively help us bring back or
bring in anew your families,
friends and neighbors to join our
house of worship."
The unlikely pair have pledged
to work together to increase
