Something Extra

Sizzling Over Contest

Joe Zaffern of Southfield was outraged
over an advertised contest for a trip that
falls on Yom Kippur and he wrote the
Jewish News to say so.
The Reynolds Kitchens are hosting a
contest to win a trip for two to the 14th
annual Sante Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta
in New Mexico Sept. 23-25. Zaffern
spotted the contest dates in a Sunday
circular to the Detroit News and Free
Press on May 23.
Yom Kippur falls on Sept. 25 this
year.
"I have never owned a calendar that
does not list this holiday," said Zaffern.
"Why not just say, 'No Jews need
apply?' This lack of consideration for the
only Jewish holiday universally known

Local Boy Wins

Detroit in Farmington Hills, is one of
the top 10 winners in the statewide
American er Me Essay Contest sponsored

to non Jews cannot be acceptable."
He said a lack of protest would con-
tribute "to the marginalization of
Judaism as meaningless to the larger
society.
"By not protesting," he added, "we
will be accepting this treatment as our
due!"
Doug Mickle, group director for
advertising and marketing at Alcoa
Consumer Products in Richmond, Va.,
responded: "We understand your con-
cerns and will share them with the
organizers of the event. Perhaps there is
some way they can reschedule future
programs so they do not conflict with
Yom Kippur."

Corrections

• The name of saxophone player and
Impact Michigan Sabbath service co-
leader Michael Schonberger, 22, of West
Bloomfield was left out of a photo cap-
tion May 28 ("Cooking Up A Storm,"
page 31).

• In "A Unique Tribute," (May 21,
page 102), the man holding the Torah
case should have been identified as Isaac
Ben-Ezra.

Food, Funds Donated

Sodhexho, a contract food management company that provides meals at the Marvin
and Betty Danto Family Health Care Center in West Bloomfield, held a staff barbe-
cue to raise awareness and funds for Berkely-based Yad Ezra. In addition to the
$125 raised, the company donated 220 pounds of nonperishable foods to be distrib-
uted to Yad Ezra clients. Shown from Sodexho are Amy Tapp and Jeffrey Smith.

Quotables

Jewish history is replete with stories and reputa-
tions of famous rabbis. Two rabbis in medieval
Spain blot our history with infamy. Who were
they?

"I have studied the national Jewish population sur-
vey and recognized that the number of Jews inter-
marrying was about half ... for me it Was very impor-
tant to find a Jewish boyfriend and, in doing so,
hopefully keeping the Jewish tradition alive ... I have
tried regular dating, blind dating, and j-dating, so I
figured national-television dating was the next logical
step.

Do You Remember

June 1994

Trying to keep from the depressing "business as
usual" idea, a special Knesset committee approved
a bill to create Free Export Processing Zones in a
move the Israeli government hopes will improve
the balance of trade and the employment situa-
tion.
Franchisees will run each zone for 49 years,
providing electricity and phone services, and will
be responsible for bringing businesses to the zone.
