NEW YORK page 22

As for his future, Mr. Sklar
knows where he ultimately
wants to go. An upper-manage-
ment position in a multimedia
corporation grabs his attention,
but the road he takes has yet to
be determined.
"There are so many choices,"
said Mr. Sklar, who held summer
internships at Rolling Stone,
Wenner Media Inc., and Epic
Records, Sony Music Entertain-
ment. "My internships definite-
ly helped me meet people and I
was able to watch and learn from
others."
The downside to Mr. Sklar's
work is being away from family
and friends. He comes home to
Farmington Hills every few
months, but there are times
when being away can be difficult.
When Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated
earlier this month, Mr. Sklar
longed to be with family and
friends. The news was too trag-
ic to digest without their support.
"This was very moving for me,"

he said. "There is a strong Jew-
ish community here, but it's not
the same. I'm not as familiar with
the New York community as I
am with the one at home."
But, on the positive side, "New
York is a great place to be when
you're 22 because you have no
limits on what you can attain or
accomplish," Mr Sklar said. "I
think New York offers opportu-
nities you cannot get anywhere
else in the country. You have so
many type-A personalities in one
city and everyone around you is
talented."

Jewish Students
Get Campus Advice

DAVID ZEMAN STAFF WRITER

I

n three short years, the Jew-
ish College Fair has grown
from a cozy gathering of high-
school students and area col-
leges to a showcase event for
Jewish teens to network with
representatives from some of the
nation's top schools.
The third annual fair, held
Monday at the Jewish Commu-
nity Center in West Bloomfield,
featured recruiters from Bran-
deis, Columbia, Duke, Wiscon-
sin, Penn and Yale, and from 12
schools in Michigan. Represen-
tatives from the Jewish Theo-
logical Seminary and Bar-Ilan
University were also among
more than 25 schools at the fair.
The event, sponsored by the
Jewish Community Council and
co-sponsored by The Jewish
News and several community
groups, gave students serious
shmooze time, and something
more.
The students were able to grill
prospective schools about social,
political and religious challenges
facing many Jews on campus.
The aim was to arm students
with information.
"There is a dearth of commu-
nity resources going toward
helping educate high-school kids
— who, by and large, live in a
homogeneous environment —
about the kinds of problems they
will face on college campuses,"
said Howard Wallach, co-chair
of the event.
Mr. Wallach mentioned anti-

Semitism, Holocaust revision-
ism and "pro-Arab propaganda"
among the leading issues con-
fronting Jews on university cam-
puses.
Sometimes, he said, religious
bias takes subtler forms, in-
cluding professors who refuse to
reschedule tests for students on
Jewish holidays.
"We don't have all the solu-
tions," Mr. Wallach said. "But
we wanted to begin the discus-
sion with students who may not
be exposed to those kinds of
problems."
Richard Lobenthal, director
of the Anti-Defamation League
Michigan Region, also spoke to
students about how to respond
to attacks on their religion.
New college students must
learn to distinguish between in-
sensitive or ignorant remarks
about Judaism and outright big-
otry, he said.
"If someone says to you, 'Jews
control all the banks,' is that an
anti-Semitic statement or an ig-
norant statement?" he asked.
"That may be hard to say. The
point being that unless you learn
how to analyze such remarks
you have no idea how to re-
spond."
Mr. Lobenthal cited federal
crime figures that showed a
marked rise in the number of
anti-Semitic incidents on Amer-
ican campuses, a trend he at-
tributes to keener competition
for jobs, a backlash against mi-
