Caring. Helping. Mental Illness.
Kadima... caring, helping adults
and children with mental
illness to move forward
to Children Month,
a time to consider ways to make a difference
in the lives of children in our community.
• Commit to do one special thing with a child in July that will make a
positive difference for that child.
• Communicate with your elected leaders to make children a priority in
policy and budget issues.
• Reduce the stigma often associated with children who are different;
help children see themselves and their peers as special beings who
are full of imagination and spark.
• Know that children absorb messages and notions from the immediate
world around them.
Kadima's Child and Adolescent Program is available
to work with children, and their family members,
with emotional and behavioral disorders.
Kadima extends a warm thank you to the community for
attending our 11th Annual Golf Classic that supports daily activities
and programming at the Lois and Milton Y. Zussman Activity Center
for adults with chronic mental illness.

emphasized that what
people do on Earth is more impor-
tant than focusing on the afterlife.
"If we want to experience eternity in
the future, we have to experience it in
the present. We exist to fulfill our tik-
kun (to fix or repair, usually referring
to deeds that bring a person closer to
the Divine spirit);' he said. "Some near-

Farmington Hills, a

of his thoughts on
the afterlife, stating there is no official
Conservative position on the topic.
"I believe our souls are imperishable

However, just as we change and grow
in this world, I do not believe that in

Scientist and author Dr.
Jerry Pollack, who earned
his doctorate at the
Weizmann Institute in
Israel and is a professor emeritus at
Stony Brook University in New York,
offers a scientific explanation for the
existence of God, and the energy that
makes it possible for souls to com-
municate with the living after physical
death has occurred, in his latest book,
Putting God into Einstein's Equations:
Energy of the Soul (Shechinah Third
Temple Inc.; 2012).
Pollack said he wrote the book in
collaboration with his late wife, Marcia,
after she died from cancer in 2011,
using a form of thought-energy telepa-
thy to communicate with her soul.
Pollack weaves his personal story
with scientific research to explore
issues such as the eternal energy of
the soul and how spirits interact with
those on Earth. He documents what he
learned about his own previous lives
through hypnotic past-life regression
"Soul mates are just that',' Pollack
said. "Once united, they can never be
put asunder. Not even after death. God
