Transplant Works
For Jersey Man

Whippany, N.J. (JTA)
Jay
Feinberg, the 26-year-old resi-
dent of New Jersey who under-
went a bone marrow transplant,
appears to be doing well, ac-
cording to the Fred Hutchinson
Cancer Research Center in Seat-
tle, where the operation took
place.
A full analysis of Mr. Fein-
berg's condition will take sever-
al weeks.
Jacob Feinberg, his father, said
his son's vital signs are positive.
In 50 percent of transplant pa-
tients, the marrow rejects the pa-
tient by attacking major organs
such as the skin, liver and gut.
The reaction, called graft-vs.-
host-disease, is usually apparent
within two to three weeks of the
transplant.
The marrow extracted from
Mr. Feinberg's miracle match
was transported to the research
center from the donor's home-
town and transplanted into Mr.
Feinberg's chest July 28.
The Feinbergs have spoken
with the donor, a woman from
Chicago, but wish to keep her
identity concealed.
Mr. Feinberg's match came af-
ter a four-year worldwide search
for a donor; through the Friends
of Jay organization, 55,000 peo-
ple were screened. Their results
will stay on file with the Nation-
al Marrow Donor Program, head-
quartered in Minneapolis.
According to the Hutchinson
center, only 14 percent of those
searching for an unrelated donor
find a match.
"The support we've received
from communities [internation-
ally] has been unbelievable," said
Arlene Feinberg, the patient's
mother. "I can't begin to express
our gratitude. We're speechless.
Words seem so inadequate, they
can't express how we feel."



Jewish Weekly
First On Internet

San Francisco (JTA) A Cali-
fornia Jewish weekly has become
the first Jewish newspaper to be
available in its entirety on the In-
ternet's graphic area known as
the World Wide Web.
The Jewish Bulletin of North-
ern California officially launched
its on-line version July 28.
Nora Contini, the Bulletin's as-
sociate publisher, expects that
the on-line version will reach
Jews in their teens, 20s and 30s
who surf the Internet but do not
already subscribe to the printed
edition.
At the very least, she said, this
younger group could learn more
about Jewish culture or Middle
East politics. But Ms. Contini



also hopes that these Jews will
like what they see and then de-
cide to subscribe to the printed
Bulletin.

Ms. Contini first began think-
ing about putting the Bulletin on-

line at the beginning of the year.
At the same time, Silicon Val-
ley reader Robert Blau offered
pro . bono help in designing the
Bulletin's home page and writing
the necessary software. This co-
incidence pushed the project for-
ward faster than expected.
Mr. Blau said he wanted to do
something to honor the memo-
ry of his father, Alexander, who
was an Auschwitz survivor. Mr.
Blau also wanted to contribute to
the Jewish presence on the In-
ternet.
Although the Bulletin is the
first Jewish weekly to appear in
its entirety in cyberspace, other
Jewish publications can be found
on-line as well.
The Jewish Review, a twice-
monthly newspaper in Portland,
Ore., has been on-line for near-
ly a year. The Jewish Week in
New York puts its cover story on-
line each week. And the Jewish
Exponent, a weekly newspaper
in Philadelphia, is developing a
site.
Tikkun magazine offers a few
articles from its latest edition.
And the Jerusalem Report, a
twice-monthly newsmagazine,
recently has begun offering its
stories on the Internet.
More and more publications
will be going on-line in the next
several years, and some pundits
even predict a day when news-
papers will be available only on
the Internet.
But Ms. Contini said Bulletin
readers need not worry about this
prospect.
"There will always be a print
edition of the Jewish Bulletin,"
she said.

Agency Promotes
Youth Aliyah

Jerusalem (JTA) — With in-
creased aliyah from the former
Soviet Union still a major goal in
Israel, one program of the Jew-
ish Agency for Israel has suc-
cessfully focused on Jewish youth
as the driving force behind im-
migration.
The program, called "Na'aleh
16" — meaning "we will make
aliyah"— brings youths between
the ages of 15 and 17 from the
former Soviet Union for a one- to
three-year study program.
Launched two years ago as a
joint effort of the Jewish Agency
and government agencies that in-
clude the Prime Minister's Office,
the project seeks to introduce stu-
dents to their Jewish heritage
and to life in Israel, with the hope
that they will ultimately decide
to remain.
So far, the program has proven
