Federation's Super Sunday
Seeks Volunteers, Donors
The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit will be brimming with vol-
unteers and their cell phones for
this year's Super Sunday event, 9:30
a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, at the
Max M. Fisher Federation Building in
Bloomfield Township.
Super Sunday is a community-wide
phonathon to further Federation's fun-
draising efforts and will be a key part
of this year's StepForward campaign,
focused on securing 11,000 donors.
Members of the community are
encouraged to "answer the call" and
support the campaign on behalf of
Jewish Detroit. Federation is also look-
ing for volunteers to staff the phone
banks. Last year, nearly 200 people
attended, and Federation is hoping to
draw at least as many this year.
"This year, we will combine the best
of this longstanding approach with
new technologies and digital media
strategies:' said Lisa Cutler, director
of campaign and community develop-
ment at Federation.
Social media sites Facebook and
Twitter will play a growing role in
sharing news about the event and per-
suading potential donors to answer the
phone. Federation participants will be
encouraged to "update their statuses"
on Facebook and Twitter during the
event, and Federation staffers will be
sharing the progress and telling stories
from the day with their online audi-
To participate, fill out the volunteer
form on the website JewishDetroit.org/
SuperSunday or contact Lisa Cutler at

Jewish Women's Website
Examines Religion, Lifestyle
KosherWoman.com was created by
a group of women who felt there
was a need for a website where busy
women could go for quick answers to
questions rather than having to read
lengthy articles.
The website combines subjects such
as prayer, travel, kitchen and lifestyle


with the physical side of life, including
health, nutrition, diet and exercise. All
the information is presented as charts,
bullets or short paragraphs and is
geared toward Jewish women, from the
least observant to the most.
For example, the lifestyle section
not only has information on holidays
and safety, but also on where abused
women or women who need a Jewish
divorce can find help.

Beth Shalom Looks At God,
Torah and The Simpsons
In a new series of Tuesday classes
beginning Feb. 7, Rabbi Robert Gamer
of Congregation Beth Shalom in Oak
Park will seek answers to some age-
old questions: What is God, how do
we deal with our own mortality, and
how do we deal with family and social
issues in modern society?
The class will use episodes from The
Simpsons as a starting point. There is
no charge, and the class is open to the
