Volunteers with the Summer Snack Packages they assembled: Isabel Zaltz,
Whitney Rubin, Zoe Zaltz, Emma Katkowsky and Adin Kleinfeldt, all of
Huntington Woods, and Jonah Gilan and Eden Gilan, both of West Bloomfield.

Tweens Assemble
Kids' Snack Packs
On Tuesday, July 2, seven tweens
put together food packages for 500
children as part of Yad Ezra's newest
initiative, the Summer Snack Program,
a package for families with children on
summer vacation and not in school.
During the summertime, children are
home more during the day and, with-
out lunch assistance programs, a fam-
ily's food supply has to stretch farther.
Yad Ezra created these packs so kids

have healthy and fun treats throughout
the summer.
The tweens created an assembly
line and put together packages that
included pretzels, applesauce, baby
carrots, crackers, Skinny Pop, fruit
rolls-ups, granola bars, peaches and
orange juice.
If you have a tween who wants to
volunteer for one of the next two pack-
ing sessions, Tuesday, July 30, and
Monday, Aug. 26, both at 7 p.m., email
Katie@yadezra.org . Space is limited.

Breast Cancer Specialist
Speaks On Jewish Genes
Are there Jewish genes? What
does genetic testing in the Jewish
population teach us about the risk
and prevention of diseases like breast
cancer and ovarian cancer? What do
we know about mutations in the BRCA
gene?
For a fascinating
look into the "Jewish
Gene Pool," join
the Maimonides
Society of the Jewish
Federation and Dana
Zakalik, M.D., on
Tuesday, July 23,
Dr. Dana
7:30 p.m. at Temple
Zakalik
Israel, 5700 Walnut
Lake Road in West
Bloomfield.
With 20 years in the field of medical
oncology, Zakalik is a specialist
in breast cancer and breast cancer
genetics at Beaumont Hospital.
Seeking "novel" genetic markers of
breast cancer risk in her research,
Zakalik has most recently explored the
psychological distress associated with
direct-to-consumer genetic testing.
The Maimonides Society works
to strengthen the bonds of those in
the medical field with the Jewish
community and Israel through
educational, social and charitable
activities.
A minimum gift of $18 to

Federation's 2013 Annual Campaign is
required to attend. A dessert reception
will follow. To register online, visit
www.j ewishdetroit. org/ events.

Art Communicates
At Shabbat Study
Rabbi Steven Rubenstein and
Congregation Beth Ahm in West
Bloomfield presents another in
its series of Shabbat Bet Midrash
experiences, which are designed
to weave together a traditional bet
midrash (study hall) format and
Shabbat morning services.
Services on
Saturday, July
27, begin at 9
a.m., with the Bet
Midrash segment
taking place in the
social hall from
10:30-11:15 a.m.
Ak..
No knowledge of
Rabbi Steven
Hebrew is required
Rubenstein
to participate.
The event will
feature poster-size reproductions of
selected artworks from the Voices and
Visions Project, www.voices-visions.
org. Each picture will combine a
poster with a brief thought from Jews
both ancient and modern, which will
be viewed and discussed.

Kaplan, (248) 737-1931, or email
