What A Book Fair!
The Detroit Jewish Book Fair Committee would like to thank the Detroit com-
munity for supporting our book fair. By attending our numerous speakers and
buying books, you help to ensure that the most sought-after authors will travel
to Detroit.
With our partnership of more than 100 organizations, this truly is a commu-
nitywide event. Without your enthusiastic support for our 70-plus authors and
your generosity in your purchases, our book fair could not succeed.
The Detroit Jewish Book Fair is the only Jewish book fair in the nation that
does not charge for events (other than patron and Film Festival events); and we
are thrilled to be able to provide our programming at no cost to the community.
Thank you again for choosing the Detroit Jewish Book Fair for your educa-
tional and spiritual enrichment. We greatly appreciate it.

Kashruth Council Continues
Despite the recent loss of its founder, Rabbi Jack Goldman, the Metropolitan
Kashruth Council is up and running ("Renowned Scholar, Kashrut Provider,"
Nov. 12, page 77). For the past three years or so, my father has been focusing on
the council's administrative work. The hands-on visiting of plants and factories
was done by staff rabbis or myself.
Therefore, despite this tragedy, we offer the community uninterrupted kosher
service. Everyone may feel secure that the products bearing our trademark
Shield-K meet the highest demands of the Halachah.
The council also has finalized discussions with several well-known rabbis who
will be joining the council staff. An announcement to that effect should follow
shortly.

Tarring Religion
A letter writer states that Muslims have an understanding that they are "per-
mitted to lie to prevent anticipated harm to one's self or fellow Muslims" and
implies that this is something evil in Islam ("3 Powerful Words:' Nov. 19, page
5). A few pages later ("Jewish Vigilantism," Nov.19, page 28), we learn that a West
Bank rabbi says the Torah permits Jews to kill non-Jews who threaten Israel.
This statement is not refuted by other Jewish scholars in the article. Therefore,
a Muslim reading the Jewish News could easily infer that Judaism promotes the
killing of Muslims.
Neither of these statements is helpful, nor do they advance the cause of
mutual understanding. Yes, there are extremist Muslims — but there are also
extremist Jews. Statements by neither extremist faction should be used to tar an
entire religion.

Gordis At JCC

Dr. Daniel Gordis, left, senior vice president
of Israel's Shalem Center, where he is also a
Senior Fellow, spoke at the Jewish Community
Center of Metrooplitan Detroit's Jewish Book
Fair about his new book, Saving Israel: How the

Jewish State Can Win a War that May Never
End. The Jerusalem resident was the founding

dean of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies
at the University of Judaism in Los Angeles.
He joined the Shalem Cener in 2007 to help found Israel's first liberal
arts college after spending nine years as vice president of the Mandel
Foundation in Israel and director of its Leadership Institute. He moved
to Israel in 1998.
