Take Pride In Israel
At Sunday Event
ear something white and
blue, and bring the crew for
an afternoon of Israeli flag-
waving, food and music.
From 2:30 to 5:30 Sunday after-
noon, June 8, the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit hosts Take Pride
in Israel, a free outdoor event on the
Eugene and Marcia Applebaum Jewish
Community Campus in West
Bloomfield, Maple and Drake.
"Our connections to Israel run deep
and strong," says Lisa Lis, who co-
chairs the event with Ron Klein. We
see this event as an opportunity for
the community to gather in celebra-
tion and express our pride for all that
Israel has achieved and stands for."
Headlining the afternoon will be Israeli
rock star Michael Harpaz who, with his
band, will perform Israeli songs. Live
entertainment will feature performances
by children's choirs.
Attractions for kids will include a
climbing wall, a moon walk and face
painting. Teens also will find special
programs. The fare also includes food
sampling as well as Judaica and Israeli
artistry for sale.
Participants will be invited to write
a "Letter Home" to Israeli terror vic-
tims of terror.
"It's totally different," said David Koppy,
who shares the 3,600-square-foot home
with wife Elissa, children, Adam and
Falynn, and dog, Shayna. We feel like

plans, Gittleman transformed the entire
elevation, adding lodge-style cultured
stone, preserving and redeploying
existing brick, extending the porch and
reconfiguring the garage roofline.
Throughout the project, the Koppys'
daily routine was never disrupted — a
critical point considering that David and
Elissa run a home-based computer

page 12), the comments of
Professor Ronald Stockton of
the University of Michigan-
Dearborn on page 16 should
have included the statement:
"We do not know what Ariel
Sharon means when he says he
is willing to accept a Palestinian
state. All we have on record is
his original proposal for a
Palestinian state in 1997 in
which he made reference to the
A and B zones of the Oslo II
agreement. That would be
about 45 percent of the West
Bank and would not be some-
thing that any Palestinian
leader could sign.
The Israelis made a much
different proposal at the Camp
David summit in July of 2002.
That proposal was probably in
excess of 90 percent of the West
Bank, not including metropoli-
tan Jerusalem. At Taba, includ-
ing land swaps, the two parties
were talking of a net transfer to
the Palestinians of 97 percent
of the whole West Bank. Both
sides were very optimistic when
those talks broke up for the

early 64 percent of 276 respondents to a
Jewish.com poll believe that Israeli Prime
Minister Ariel Sharon should not agree to a freeze on
Jewish settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip before the
Palestinian Authority shows that it can control terrorism.
As of May 30, the poll had 276 respondents. Some 176 (63.77
percent) believe the Palestinians must act first against terrorism. One
hundred (36.23 percent) support a settlement freeze. Jewish.com , a
Jewish Renaissance Media sister company of the Jewish News, adds a
new question to its Web site each week. One of the highest responses
in 2003 was to the question: "Did you keep kosher for Passover this
year?" Some 626 people responded, with 372 – almost 60 percent –
saying "Yes, I was pretty strict."
Another 136 (21.73 percent) checked the box saying, "Not really. I
didn't eat bread, but otherwise I'm not observant." Some 118 (18.85
percent) checked, "No, after the seder I'm done." This week's
Jewish.com question is, 'Are you doing anything to celebrate
Shavuot?" Answer choices are: "Yes; studying Torah I attending servic-
es." "Yes; eating dairy." "No." To vote, go to Jewish.com
