'As much as it touched me how much
these people, the pillars of their respec-
tive Jewish communities, wanted to
know about my experiences in Israel, it
meant even more to me to see their own
dedication to the Jewish homeland and
its continual existence."

— Rachel Rosenthal of Franklin, among
12 twenty-somethings taking part in
Project Otzma XVII in Israeli at a
Shabbat dinner for generous federated
donors visiting the Jewish state on the
Prime Minister's Mission.

"The outcome of Tuesday's election
means a great opportunity to see first-
hand the talent and leadership and com-
mitment that the Republican Party has,
and will once and for all put to bed the
myth that the Republican Party is a
party who is at odds with the interest of
the Jewish community."

— Matthew Brooks, executive director of
the Republican Jewish Coalition, in the
wake of the Nov. 5 vote, as quoted by JTA.


Yiddish Limericks

Shaba Candlelighting

"It is important to light the Shabbos candles. Even if
one child lights Shabbos candles, God will be happy."

"Your boyfriend's a menace!" said
"Don't see him out publicly, Rhonda.
You're taking a risk.
What spouts from his pick'
As often as not is a shanda.""

— Alona Aharonov, 7th grade, West Bloomfield

Sponsored by Lubavitch
Women's Organization.
