Rosh Hashanah Postcards
Will Send Prayers To Israel
Where the Jewish
fter a very difficult year for Israel, it is especially fit-
ting to send Rosh Hashanah greetings to Israeli
families. A local project makes this easy to do.
The grassroots group that put on last month's Israel Terror
Victims Vigil has printed handsome postcards to be sent to
various points in Israel: hospitals and rehabilitation centers,
families of terror victims, families in the Central Galilee (the
Jewish Federation's Partnership 2000 region) and others
elsewhere in Israel. The group is providing the addresses.
The postcard is blue on white, and features a dove of
peace flying over the Earth, with the Hebrew message:
"May the Almighty who establishes peace in the heavens,
grant peace to us, to all Israel and to the State of Israel. We
stand together with you, hand in hand."
Cards are available to individuals, synagogues, schools
and organizations for $1 each to cover printing and the
affixed 70-cent stamp. Those interested in underwriting the
sending of cards or wanting to personalize a card, may call
the Labor Zionist Alliance, (248) 967-1211, visit the
Jewish Community Center in Oak Park or the offices of
the Jewish Community Council of Metropolitan Detroit in
the Max Fisher Federation Building, 6735 Telegraph,
Bloomfield Township, or the gift shops at Adat Shalom
- Synagogue, 29901 Middlebelt, Farmington Hills or
Congregation Beth Shalom, 14601 Lincoln, in Oak Park.
Cards will be collected from all the sites on Thursday,
Aug. 29, to be addressed and mailed.

resh from a wildly successful three days recently in
Oak Park, the Ben Yehudah Israel Shopping Expo is
coming for two days to the Washtenaw County Jewish
Community Center in Ann Arbor. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Sunday, Aug. 25, and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26.
Available for purchase will be an assortment of Israeli
items, including jewelry, art, Judaica, books, posters, per-
fumes, T-shirts and products from the Dead Sea.
Since the intifida (Palestinian uprising), Israel's loss of
income from tourism and related industries has been acute.
The traveling Expo is a chance for members of America's
Jewish communities to show their support for Israel.
. The shopping days coincide with the Washtenaw JCC's
annual "Apples and Honey" family celebration.
The Washtenaw County JCC is at 2935 Birch Hollow
Drive in Ann Arbor. For information, call (734) 971-0990.

Light A Candle On 9-11
o honor the memory of those who lost their lives
during the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, a special
yahrtzeit candle (lit on the anniversary of a death)
will be made available, at no charge, from area synagogues.
"We were all affected in some very special way by the
events of Sept. 11," says Rabbi Dannel Schwartz of Temple
Most local congregations are participating in the project
to distribute the candles, along with a commemorative
label to attach to the candle's holder. The label will show a
photo of a child, head bowed, holding a candle with the
words, "we remember" in both Hebrew and English.
Sponsors of the program — the Michigan Board of
Rabbis, the Jewish News, Ira Kaufman Chapel in Southfield
and Hebrew Memorial Chapel in Oak Park — will donate
3,000 of the candles and an unlimited amount of labels
that can be placed on any yahrtzeit candle.
The candles and labels will be available beginning
Monday, Aug. 26, for those who wish to light them on
Friday evening, Aug. 30, which corresponds with 23 Elul,
the Hebrew date of Sept. 11, 2001. Candles may be lit on
Aug. 30 and/or Wednesday, Sept. 11.
"It was clear to all the rabbinic leaders in metro Detroit,
that we had to help our congregants commemorate the vic-
tims of Sept. 11," said Rabbi Paul Yedwab, president of the
Michigan Board of Rabbis. "By distributing yahrtzeit can-
dles, we help the Jews in our area remember all who died
and pray that such a tragedy never befalls this country again."

Last week's Editor's Notebook ("Dispelling Lies," Aug.
16, page 5) should have stated that Howard Wallach is
the president of Anti-Defamation League Michigan
Region and Kenneth Wolf is the president of
American Jewish Committee Metropolitan Detroit
Chapter. The names were reversed due to wrong
information inadvertently provided by the Jewish
Community Council of Metropolitan Detroit.
