he tapestry of the
Jewish community
is woven from sin-
gle threads," said
Kathy Wilson-Fink, chair of
Federation's recent Threads
event at Adat Shalom
Synagogue. Larry Jackier,
president of the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan

Detroit, continued the unity
theme in his opening
remarks: "Many threads
weave a fabric of beauty and
strength."
Thus, Federation's
Women's Campaign &
Education Department com-
municated their annual cam-
paign message while provid-

ing an appreciative audience
with a one-woman perform-
ance of "Esther," starring
Gabriella Lev, a founder of
Theatre Company Jerusalem
(TCJ).
TCJ fuses contemporary
theatre and ancient Hebrew
and Aramaic writings. "It's a
grassroots theater group that

empowers women," explained
Suzan Curhan, who intro-
duced Lev.
Lev stood beside a ragtag
trunk to recreate the story of
the beautiful Queen Esther,
the goddess of carnival. Her
performance was both innova-
tive and captivating.
