ORT Is Aiding
Hewlett-Packard, in conjunction with the World ORT
Union and other partners, will build a "digital village" in
Dikhatole, South Africa.
The black township has 10,000 families, electricity and
water, but no paved roads. It has a high poverty rate, one of
the highest rates of AIDS infection in the world, high crime
and inadequate schools.
The project is expected to help 4,000 individuals gain
computer, Internet and business skills over the next three
years. Hewlett-Packard will provide 90 workstations, support-
ing hardware and consulting. ORT South Africa will direct
the project and is training 12 trainers. They will teach
employability skills, computer literacy, communication skills,
and entrepreneurship and presentation skills.
In addition, HP and ORT will train at least 70 teachers in
computer skills to help more than 2,400 children learn basic
computer use. Local schools will be outfitted with computer
and Internet facilities.
Government and the private sector have been involved to
insure the program continues after the initial three-year peri-

Has A Home
Forgotten Harvest is looking for those baseball bat-size zuc-
chini, those super-juicy but over-abundant tomatoes and any
other fresh produce that your garden has over-produced.
Southfield-based Forgotten Harvest is a non-sectarian chari-
ty that picks up excess food from restaurants and other agen-
cies and delivers it daily to 61 soup kitchens and food
pantries in metropolitan Detroit. So far this season, the
organization has received 1,800 pounds of fresh garden veg-
etables, but more is requested to feed the hungry.
Forgotten Harvest partnered with the English Gardens
stores, several senior gardening programs, two area prisons
and the public in a Plant A Row for the Hungry campaign
Fresh fruits and vegetables can be donated to Forgotten
Harvest through any of the five English Gardens locations,
including West Bloomfield (Orchard Lake Road at Maple)
and Royal Oak-Troy (Coolidge Highway at Big Beaver).
Joel Dorfman is a vice president and Rob Cohen is secre-
tary of Forgotten Harvest, founded by members of the Jewish
community. Last year, the charity delivered 2.1 million
pounds of food to its clients, including the Yad Ezra kosher
food pantry in Berkley.

Lots About Holidays
On 'Mega Web Site
Just in time for the new year, the Shul-Chabad Lubavitch has
unveiled what it is calling a "Mega Web site."
The interactive learning site provides information about the
Jewish holidays. Visitors are able to link to holiday "how-to"
guides, mystical and Talmudic insights, games and a world-
wide searchable database of High Holiday services.
Launched in conjunction with the opening of the syna-

gogue's new building, on the Campus for Living Judaism at
Maple and Drake roads in West Bloomfield, the site includes
information on the synagogue itself.
With updates throughout the year, the site will provide
weekly Torah portion thoughts and contain an online maga-
zine and an audio-video link to Torah classes. A connection to
the "Ask Moses" site provides a one-to-one, question-and-
answer session with rabbis, closing down only on Shabbat.
For travelers, information also is available for contacting
Chabad-Lubavitch centers and obtaining Shabbat candle
lighting times worldwide. The site links to a 1,000-year calen-
dar, which converts English calendar dates to Hebrew dates to
find Hebrew birthdays or yahrtzeit (anniversary of death)
"Many people want to learn in the comfort of their own
home or office," says Itty Shemtov, of the Shul, which is
directed by her husband, Rabbi Kasriel Shemtov. "This will
be their 24-hour local source of Jewish learning."

Lieberman And Granholm
`Cooking' At Little Daddy's
Spotted at Little Daddy's restaurant in Southfield during the
Aug. 26 lunch hour was Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn.,
and Michigan Attorney Genefal Jennifer Granholm.
They weren't just nibbling Tommy salads and catching up
on each other's children. Lieberman, the 2000 Democratic
vice-presidential candidate, was in town to stump for
Granholm, Michigan's Democratic gubernatorial nominee.
As their campaign focus turned to corporate corruption
and executives who played too loose with the books,
Lieberman turned to Granholm with a smile. He'd crafted a
new slogan for the candidate, who would be the state's first
woman governor if elected in November.
The senator's double-entendre: "Jennifer will not 'cook' ...
