A Look At 'Israel In The Classroom'
In Light Of Increasing Campus Bias

0

n Sunday, April 15, Stand
With Us-Michigan will pres-
ent a conference on "Israel in
the College Classroom: Challenges and
Solutions" at the Holocaust Memorial
Center in Farmington Hills.
Registration starts at 2:45 p.m., and
the program is from 3-4:30.
Three professors from different
Michigan campuses will be discussing
their experiences in teaching courses
on Israel in the light of current Israel-
focused controversies. A question-and-
answer period will follow.
The participants are Yael Aronoff,
Ph.D., assistant professor of internation-
al relations at Michigan State University;
Edith Covensky, Ph.D., a poet who teach-
es Hebrew language and Israeli culture
at Wayne State University; and Jeffrey
Haus, Ph.D., associate professor of his-
tory and religion at Kalamazoo College
and director of Jewish Studies.
"We are presenting this conference
in part because of the increasing anti-
Israel rhetoric on many campuses, and
we have wondered about its potential
for affecting Israel education in the col-

lege classroom:' said
Barbara Moretsky,
SWU-MI president.
The conference is
free and open to the
public. Make a reserva-
tion by April 12 at:
standwithusmichigan@
gmail.com or (248)
325-5306. One may also
register at the event.
For information, visit
www.standwithus.com .
"Israel in the
College Classroom" is
co-sponsored by the
Holocaust Memorial
Center Zekelman
Family Campus and the
Zionist Organization
of America-Michigan
Region. Supporting
organizations are Akiva
Hebrew Day School,
B'nai B'rith Great Lakes
Region and the Jewish
Community Relations
Council.

Karmanos Cancer Center
Dedicates Dresner Clinic

he Barbara Ann Karmanos
Cancer Center in Detroit
dedicated its new
Joseph Dresner Family Clinic for
Hematologic Malignancies & Stem Cell
Transplantation with a ribbon-cutting
celebration on March 29. It was made
possible by a $2.5 million contribu-
tion from the late Joseph Dresner, who
passed away earlier this year.
Dresner was diagnosed with
myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)
in 2002 and was treated by his
physician Charles A. Schiffer, M.D.,
leader of the Malignant Hematology
Multidisciplinary Team at Karmanos.
To show his gratitude, he made his
donation in May 2010 to honor his
doctor.
"From the first time my dad met Dr.
Schiffer about 10 years ago:' said Lori
Dresner, "he was so impressed — not
only because of Dr. Schiffer's expertise,
but also for his warmth and genuine
caring demeanor. They just seemed to
connect.
"Shortly before my dad passed away,
he was able to tour this clinic while it
was under construction. Being a build-
er, dad could envision what the clinic
would look like long before there were
defined spaces. He was so weak at the
time, but touring this clinic gave him a
spark. He was so excited to see this take
shape, knowing his gift would impact
patients for years to come'
