My name is Katie Rosen.

If you're looking for me, I'm
usually at practice. I'm on the
robotics team, the volleyball and
tennis teams, and I'm the secretary
of Student Government. Before
JAMD, I had never been to a
Jewish day school. Once, I went to
a retreat and met some great kids
from the Jewish Academy. They
participated in every aspect Of the-
retreat—the study groups, services,
and d'var torahs. I wanted to know
what they knew and do what they
could do. Since coming to JAMD,
I've read Torah at my temple, Kol
Arni, become more involved in
BBYO and NCSY, and met kids of
all different backgrounds: Reform,
Orthodox, Conservative, and
unaffiliated; Ashkenazi and
Sephardi; Israeli and Russian. In
some places in the world, religion
splits people apart, but at JAMD it's
Judaism that brings all of us
together.

Advocacy Guide
Now Available

Israel activists have a new, effective
resource to help them express their soli-
darity and support via "Israel 101," an
advocacy guide, located on the Jewish
Community Council of Metropolitan
Detroit's Web site.
Devised to provide tools for both the
aspiring and seasoned advocate, Israel
101 offers resources in the areas of
media and government relations as well
as valuable ideas and arguments in sup-
port of positions relating to Israel.
The guide encourages users to get
involved and contact the media with
objections, corrections .or praise regard-
ing Israel coverage.
It offers suggestions for urging govern-
ment representatives to support pro-
Israel legislation.
A comprehensive list of media and
government representatives is incorpo-
rated into the site.
Additional segments of Council's
Israel 101 include Talking Points, with
ideas for communicating a pro-Israel
case; In Context, featuring useful quotes
from Jewish and government leaders;
and Nine Simple Actions that American
Jews can do for Israel.
Council's Web site also enables users
to join the Israel Advocacy Network
(IAN), an e-mail group of more than
1,500 Israel advocates who receive week-
ly action alerts.
Israel 101 can be found on the home-
page of Council's Web site at
www.jevvishcorrununitycouncil.org
