December 6 • 2012

n Saturday, Dec. 15,
StandWithUs-Michigan will
celebrate Chanukah with its
Festival of Lights fundraiser at Adat
Shalom Synagogue in Farmington
Hills. The event begins at 6:15 p.m.
and includes dinner, program, music
and dancing. Reservations start at $75
per person; RSVP by Dec. 12.
The evening highlights the work of
StandWithUs, an international Israel
education and advocacy organization
now in its 11th year, which began
in Los Angeles as a response to the
growing anti-Israel actions on many
California campuses. Chapters were
then formed across the country by
people dealing with the same issues
at their local universities. Written
materials were developed that enabled
students and others to respond with
fact-based information to the anti-
Israel propaganda. Now the website,
standwithus.com, makes available all
this material plus much more.
Elaine and Michael Serling will be
honored that evening for their work
on behalf of Jewish culture and Israel
studies.
A singer/songwriter, Elaine is well
known for her wonderful concerts at
the JCC's Gottlieb Musicfest and at
other venues. For more than 40 years,
Elaine's career in the field of Jewish
music education has included teach-
ing about Jewish music and directing
choirs of several local Sunday schools
and Hebrew schools.
Michael works on behalf of Israel
studies at his alma mater, Michigan
State University. Since 1998, he has
been chair of the MSU Jewish Studies
Advisory Board, which is dedicated to
growing the successful Jewish Studies
Program at MSU. The Serlings gave

Dr. Jonathan Adelman

the major gift to endow the Serling
and Friends Israel Studies Chair
and have endowed a visiting Israeli
Scholars position. Michael also serves
on the boards of MSU Hillel, Detroit
Jewish Federation Capital Needs, the
Michigan Council of the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee,
American Technion Institute and the
Anti-Defamation League.
The Festival of Lights celebration
features as its keynote speaker Dr.
Jonathan Adelman. A professor at
the prestigious Josef Korbel School of
International Studies at the University
of Denver, Adelman was the doctoral
dissertation adviser to former Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice. At Columbia
University, he gave the Jacob and Anna
Blauner Lecture in 2004, following
in the footsteps of Elie Weisel, Isaac
Bashevis Singer and William Safire.
He has been a panelist and speaker
at numerous AIPAC events and has
worked extensively with several gov-
ernment agencies in Washington.
For more than a decade, Adelman
has gone on more than 15 interna-
tional speaking tours for the U.S. State
Department to more than a dozen
countries. In recent years, he has been
a popular speaker on the Middle East,
and especially Israel, which is the
subject of his latest book. Besides the
numerous books he has written or
edited, he has written many academic
articles including a chapter in Tenured

or Tenuous: Defining the Role of Faculty
in Supporting Israel on Campus.
