state solution that U.N. Secretary
General Ban Ki-moon described.
• The exaggerated rhetoric criti-
cizing Israel for proposed construc-
tion "is offensive at a time when the
Security Council is refusing to take
action to stop the slaughter of tens of
thousands of civilians — including
many Palestinians — by the Syrian
regime.
• "If Security Council members are
really interested in progress toward
Palestinian statehood, they will press
Mr. Abbas to stop using settlements
as an excuse for intransigence — and
cool their own overheated rhetoric:'
Readers, especially Jewish, must
be aware of the vast anti-Israel bias
that characterizes American media.

just published a detailed research of
the New York Times coverage of the
Palestinian-Israeli conflict "Indicting
Israel:' Specifically, the Times is not
accurate, fair, balanced, responsible or
open to criticism.
Unfortunately, many Jews accept
narratives that defame Israel and
delegitimize Israel's existence. It is
not enough today to favor "peace the
"two state solution" and other slogans.
It is deeds that matter.
You are called to know the truth
firsthand, as the late Rabbi Irwin
Groner, a die-hard Zionist and sup-
porter of Israel, indicated in his book

Renewing Jewish Faith.
The truth left most media a long
time ago.

JFS Seeks Male Mentors
For Mentor Connection
On Jan. 23, Jewish Family Service
(JFS) will host Make a Difference
in the New Year ... Mentor a Youth
at JFS in West Bloomfield (6555 W.
Maple Road). The event is free to the
community and will begin at 7 p.m.
January is National Mentoring
Month, and it is a great time of year
to highlight mentoring as a valuable
volunteer opportunity that allows
an individual to make a significant
impact in a child's life. The JFS Make
a Difference in the New Year ...
Mentor a Youth event will help com-
munity members to learn all about
mentoring as a great way to volunteer
their time while having a large impact
on a child's life.
Mentor Connection is a non-
sectarian program of JFS that matches
caring adult mentors with Oakland
County youth who can benefit from
additional support.
"Currently, there is a waiting list
of 41 youth, and it continues to grow
as more families hear about our suc-
cessful program:' says Sherri Gerber
Somers, JFS Director of Family Life
Services. "With 34 of the youth being
boys, we are really focusing our
recruitment efforts on male mentors:'
The goal of Mentor Connection is
to ensure that any child who needs a
mentor in Oakland County is given the
opportunity to be matched with one.
To sign up, contact Sherri Gerber
Somers at sgerber-somers@
jfsdetroit.org or (248) 592-2330.

Yad Ezra Announces
Purim Pasta Shake-Up

Berkley-based kosher food pantry
Yad Ezra is encouraging synagogues,

be donated to Yad Ezra for distribu-
tion to the food pantry's 1,400 client
families. In addition to the proteins,
canned and fresh fruits and veg-
etables, cereals, toiletries, household
cleaning items and other staples pro-
vided by Yad Ezra, the food pantry
currently gives out 2,000 pounds of
pasta every month.
Purim, a holiday known for giv-
ing gifts for the poor ("Matanot
L'evyonim") begins Sunday, Feb. 24.
Synagogues and organizations from
all over the community are planning
to participate.
Yad Ezra is also offering the sale of
Purim Tribute available for mailing.
A Purim tribute package includes
six cards and plain envelopes for
