On The Fence

The president of Detroit Jewry's top
fund-raising and service arm says the
security fence and wall that Israel is
building along its West Bank border
should be called an anti-terrorism
barrier to better reflect its purpose.
"The security fence currently
under construction along much of
the frontier separating Israel from
the West Bank is not a barrier to
peace," said Lawrence Jackier, presi-
dent of the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit. "It is a barrier
against terrorism. Why not call it
that? Israel's 'anti-terrorism barrier'
is a term people might better under-
"No other nation in the world
before this time has faced as relent-

less and intense a wave of terror as
Israel has," he said after returning
from Federation's Michigan Miracle
Mission 4 to Israel. "No other
nation in the world would tolerate
what Israel has endured."
Since September 2000, more than
970 Israelis and others have been
murdered by Palestinian terrorists
who infiltrated Israel to kill civilians
on crowded streets and buses and in
cafes, schools and homes, he said.
Terrorists obey no boundaries,
limits or rules. To those who find
the idea of a "fence" or "wall" offen-
sive, Israel has every right and
indeed the duty to defend its citizens
against terrorist attack, Jackier said.

driving, percussive finale.
Cantor Rose, in her
10th year at the temple,
joined with the sympho- •
ny's string section in an
encore presentation of a
four-movement Yiddish
suite for strings and voice.
In late June, the choir
will embark on its first
European tour, visiting
Jewish communities in
Romania, Bulgaria and
Greece. Included on the
tour are collaborations
with orchestras and
choirs from Sofia,
Bucharest and Thessaloniki.

"Today, when curious people are trying to be tactful
and say, 'Oh, were you born Jewish?' my response is,
`Yes, just not to a Jewish womb.' I say this because I
believe that my soul has always been Jewish. I was
meant to be a Jew but have had to find my way back
`home' by way of a variety of religious paths, from
Charismatic Christianity to Eastern spirituality."

— Alysa Stanton, a second-year rabbinical student at
the Hebrew Union College JewishInstitute of Religion,
in an interview about the signs that led to her conver-
sion and her quest for the rabbinate as an Ohio native
who is black; quoted in the spring issue of Reform
Judaism magazine.

Do You Remembe&

May 1974

State Department officials, concerned that Congress
will insist that the government take the issue of Arab
terrorism to the U.N. Security Council following
the recent massacre of 22 children at Mialot in •
Israel, succeeded in blocking the demand on
President Nixon and Secretary of State Kissinger.
The concern was that the condemnation would
lead to defeat of Kissinger's efforts to arrange disen-
gagement of Syrian and Israeli forces.
