These subjects help students analyze how Jewish communal and social policy issues affect the delivery of services. As well, the school offers a certificate in Jewish Communal Services that may be taken simultane- ously with a Masters degree. As for the placement phase of the program, my experience at Jewish Family Services in Ottawa has proven to be an immeasurable asset. I have also conducted some indi- vidual counselling and at pre- sent am working on a commu- nity project.
Prior to my placement at JFS my focus was working with adults and children who were developmentally chal- lenged. I am grateful to Jew- ish Family Services for opening my eyes to many of the other avenues in which social work can lead. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in the field of social work to look into Wurzweiler as a fresh, alterna- tive to some of the more con- ventional programs offered. The university is receptive to Ottawa students and has been very accommodating. One should also keep in mind that JFS has an education mandate and encourages the profession- al development of social work students.
Not only did Howard have the opportunity to work in a lab in a foreign coun- try, he also discovered a vibrant and exciting country. Howard spent two and half months working with Prof. I particularly enjoyed working with a technician who had arrived in Israel from Russia two years ago. It was interesting to learn why she and her family came to Israel. The objective of the research was to develop a method of testing for the detection of the family of proteins, in order to isolate the gene that encodes it. And Jerusalem really has everything.

Silent Witness documents monuments of the Holocaust The wind blows across the landscape, and shadows seem to move through the corridors like fleeting fragments of memory.
The people are gone, only the buildings remain, a seemingly inanimate testament to what has occurred. Yet the spirit of these places is haunting and powerful, the past just a moment away, lying just beneath the surface. There are the former concentration camps of the Second World War. Over the years, Dachau and Auschwitz have become places of pilgrimage, perhaps tourist attractions. Museums, monuments and even convents have appeared in the fog that still covers this land. Much controversy has surrounded the former concentra- tion camps over the last 20 years.
Neo-fascist groups have targeted these sites and Holocaust memorials for vandalism, demonstrations, violence. Revisionists have tried to use the transformed remains to further their lies. The Carmelite Convent at Auschwitz raised new questions about remem- brance and the appropriateness of their religious response.
Since Eastern Europe has opened its doors, more Western visitors have visited the camps, and have become aware of how they have been preserved. Architects and historians from around the world have become increasingly concerned as these sites crumble to the ground. Silent Witness is a poetic documentary film that explores the closed-off chambers of these camps and enters the world of people who live and work on the sites today.
Today, Dachau and Auschwitz, and other former camps, are in danger of continued transformation at the least, dis- appearance at the worst. As the Second World War grows dis- tant, it is only natural that concerns of the present over- shadow the past. In the act of remembrance, what is revealed and what remains hidden? How should these sites be pre- served, and how do they speak to us today? Silent Witness, produced by Wichin-York Film, is a fea- ture-length documentary 74 minutes in German and Eng- lish, with English sub-titles.
It will play at the ByTbwne Cin- ema on February 15 and 16 at pm. As the new day vainly tried to bring its golden glow To the sleeping city, The wrath of G-d cast a sombre shadow. The perfume of long denials, Clogged the air with the stench Of treacherous idols. Their wicked, mischievous hoard, Scattered by supernatural flames, Returned to the soil whence it came.
The locusts descended. A shifting, mutating, vapour of chaos Designed to devour, The clicking mandibles gleamed As the sunlight shone through the pall of desolation. Extinction of the anarchy began. They followed the command, Until there was nothing left. He felt in his soul the notes that he played, And even in times of trouble his joyousness stayed. Although he was not regarded as much The hearts of many he did touch. The tunes were happy, yet sad all the same The melodies like an endless game.

The anguish of destruction, the sadness of fate, His people would endure a fiery hate. He played for the future, he played for the past Hoping the strength of his people would last. Sorrow and joy, meshed into one, The song of the people still on the run. It will not be available in English for several months, but it is worth learning French to read it in the original. It has been said that the autobiogra- phy records the naked and sometimes unpleasant truth about others but not about the writer.
That does not hold for Wiesel: he is discrete to a fault in regis- tering the shortcomings of others but open about his own weaknesses and failings. A major stylist in French, Wiesel uses the language of Voltaire and Racine the latter one of his favorite writers to recon- struct with uncanny precision and volu- minous, photographic detail, a childhood and adolescence in Sighet, Transylvania, a post-Holocaust sojourn in Paris, lengthy visits to Israel and domicile in New York City.
Each of the geographical foci of this anthology of memories has its own special elan because in each Wiesel experienced events which traumatized him deeply and encountered people who effected pro- found changes in his psyche. The transits he precipitated in wan- dering purposively across four continents helped him in his search for answers to difficult questions. If you are presenting this as a question, this is something I can live with. Wiesel gives names to the rebbes, mer- chants, artisans and storekeepers who peopled his tiny hamlet and who perished in the flames. He describes how, as late as , Hungarian Jews were able to engage in the gift of self-delusion about Nazi aims.
Everyone knew what was going on in the death camps, Wiesel laments, except Hungarian Jews. Not exactly. There were rumors and reports from Jews who had escaped from the Polish inferno and arrived in Sighet to chronicle tales of mass murder and unthinkable bestiality. The sad witnesses told their story. Even on the day the Nazis arrived in Sighet the man who was baking matzah for the forthcoming holiday refused to abandon his metier.
By everyone in Europe knew about Auschwitz. Rudolf Vrba, one of the few escapees from the camp, had tried to convince Hungarian Jews and others about what was going on in Auschwitz. No one listened and almost one third of Hungarian Jewry went to its fate in the fifth year of the war. Auschwitz taught Wiesel many bitter lessons.
His family, a unit of parents, one son, two older sisters and a younger one, prided itself on its closeness as did most Hungarian Jewish families. Elie and his father survived under excruciating, difficult circumstances almost until the end of the war - almost. Shortly before liberation, Elie suffered a problem with his knee and, despite obvi- ous misgivings, he went to the Auschwitz infirmary. Miraculously, he survived an operation and was in the recovery phase when his father told him that the arrival of the Soviets was imminent. Fearing that the Nazis would try to wipe out all evidence of their ignominious crime, Elie and his father decided not to remain in the camp but chose rather to join the evacuation to Buchenwald.
His father did not survive the move and Elie is obsessed, to this day, with the histori- cal alchemy that killed his father because those who remained to await the Soviets at Auschwitz were not harmed. After the war Wiesel went off to Paris in the company of other young Jewish refugees and there he tried to regain his equilibrium. His account of his years in France is filled with mystery, humor, pathos and - unrequited love.
He lost a chance to acquire French citizenship effortlessly because of a language prob- lem. During his Paris period he met and almost married a young woman who was part of a choral group he headed. The marriage did not take place because of complex scheduling and postal problems! When he met her later in Israel he did not divulge the rea- son he had been unable to maintain contact with her while she awaited his return. As an aspiring journalist, Wiesel applied to work for a Yiddish newspaper in Paris only to discover it was under communist sponsorship.
Some of the most memorable moments from the Paris segment deal with Francois Mauriac, one of the great French novelists of the 20th century. A friendship ensued and snippets of their dialogues appear in this book. They are frank exchanges between Mau- riac, the believing Catholic with views about Jews and Judaism that resonate with medieval obscurantism, and Wiesel, the proud Jew.
He experi- enced it first hand in his native Sighet although he only realized its extent after visiting the town later in life , in France after the war, in visits to Israel and dur- ing the early part of his sojourn in the United States. There were times that Wiesel literally had nothing to eat and, even when he acquired jobs as a free- lancer for the Israeli paper Yediot Ahronot, his pay was meager. Things changed, slowly, after the pub- lication and translation of his novel Night.
The slowness was reinforced by a near fatal auto accident that he had when working in New York for the Yiddish newspaper the Forwertz. He was still eking out a bare living when the accident occurred, but he managed during the dif- ficult days of recuperation to maintain a sense of humor. His novels were published in quick suc- cession. His non-fiction works garnered international fame, especially his report on The Jews of Silence, the travail of Russian Jewry. Soon Wiesel became one of the most sought after speakers on the lecture circuit everywhere in North America. This is natural because it is in the United States that the writer who writes in French primarily has had the most pleasurable experi- ences.
They offered him a blank cheque in exchange for a speaking date. He did not tell his interlocutors that the UJA had treated him shabbily when he approached the organization for lecture assignments when he first arrived in the United States. He spoke to them without a fee - a grand gesture! For 17 years he studied on a regular basis with the great Talmudist and Wiesel held his own in the presence of Lieberman.
Dream kitchen, superb family room; on treed ravine. Nanny suite. The rich and varied program for this evening will be enhanced by the addition of two other local musical groups, the Sax Quartet and the Classic Kiez Trio. The group was formed two years ago, the inspiration of Ben Green- berg. It has played to enthusiastic audiences at many functions in the Jewish community and the community at large. A shared enthusiasm and inter- est in Klezmer music brought the Classic Klez Trio together under the leadership of Sol Gunner, with instrumentalists Dave Renaud and Dave Johnstone completing the trio.
Though newly formed, the trio has already performed at var- ious venues in the community. Previous Cafe Sabra events have been sell outs. Purchase your tickets early. Seating capaci- ty is limited.

Susanna Atkinson got the crowd's attention with the first entrance of the show. Shayna Levitan had them in the palm of her hand as she sang, "Hello Shoppers" and Jessica Brukirer sent them off with some hilarious tuba playing. All of the young performers acted very professonally and can proudly begin to call themselves "Triple Threats". Triple Threat Musical Theatre Program teaches drama, theatre dance and singing, and focuses on developing the skills that will make one a polished musical theatre performer.
New students are always welcome. Clue No. Program Centre will be pre- enting the eighth annua! The evening will begin at a. The Fly- ng Camel.

The second film of the evening. The Desert- er's Wife, is a deep and thought-provok- ing look at a situation faced by many in Israel where army ser- vice is, unfortunately, a necessary fact of life. Michael Baratz, Chair- man, will be coming from Toronto to show a short video on the asso- ciation's activities to familiarize our local community with its good works. Among other things, the association offers a summer camp " an opportunity to see what the Israelis are viewing in their movie theatres " vacation to the widows and orphans of fallen Israeli soldiers; rest and recreation centres for sol- diers on leave; canteens and shel- tered bus stops and many other "comfort" items.

The evening was most pleasant, affording the members an opportunity to discuss areas cf common interest and concern regarding the guild and art in general.
David Smith took an active part in the discussion and was proclaimed an honourary member of the Jewish Artists' Guild. He made a most generous offer to the members: as part o the restaurant's recleccration plans, wall space would be made available to JAG members who would like to hang their art. This is a wonderful offer, both for She guild mem- bers to gain exposure for their work and for restaurant patrons to view first-rate art white dining.

It was billed as a Black and White Affair, and the fifty people of ail ages who attended showed up in various combinations of black and white, from formal to decidedly casual.
One partygoer wearing grey managed to con- vince organizers that this was indeed a combination of biack and white and thus qualified for the reduced party fee for those who dressed for the theme. A crackling fire in the fire- place, soft music, a few balloons bouncing about black and white of course and romantic candlelit rooms made a perfect setting for socializing. The potluck buffet table, loaded with a colourful variety of dishes, was a feast for She eye and the palate. The mood was right for min- gling and many 'new' people who had chosen this special event to get involved found it easy to meet and make friends.
As midnight approached, the atmosphere became more lively. Are you available on Tuesdays? It's not difficult; you get to meet new people and have lunch, too! It was countdown time. Champagne flowed.

This program will cater to those kids who enjoy sports but are not old enough to attend sports camp. Their day camp routine will include more sports and active games instead of drama and dance. For those parents not able to pick up their children at the end of the day, the after camp care program is the ideal solution. You can use it on a daily basis or just when you need it. Tweens are invited to consider our leader-in-lraining program. It's a combination of being a camper and learning to be a coun- sellor.
They are expected to attend camp for at least half the summer, and their progress as leaders will be assessed. Directors Lori Boris and Brahm Olszynko will focus on teaching Broadway- style choreography and stagecraft - and on having a great time. Kids will also learn painting and draw- ing and have swimming lessons. Each term will end with a perfor- mance. Take a moment to look over our many camp options, if you have any questions, please give us a call at We are committed to making summer a wonderful time for each of our campers.
We look forward to seeing your child this summer. Spaces are limited. To register call Gale at Please call Gale at to register. Call Gale at to plan your party. Book early to avoid disappointment! The residents sang songs, heard stories and even played dreidle, and latkes were passed around for all to enjoy. Both the residents and our BBYO members had a great time.
We had the opportunity to both teach and to learn from the residents. This program was one of my first experiences with BBYO and it is a great indication of what is yet to come. Since joining in September, I have attended parties, a sleep- over, an arts and craft program and more. I have also been lucky enough to attend a con- clave, in which chapters from different cities get together for a weekend.
It was great. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that many customs have not changed since the days when my mother belonged. BBYO, in my observation, is a great way for Jewish kids to meet and have fun. We have some great programs planned for the rest of the year, and I would strongly suggest that teens join, and that any adults reading this urge their children and grandchildren to get involved.
I found a very warm, friend- ly atmosphere at BBYO and always feel wanted. We are all one group of friends. Each and every member is a friend. BBYO tries to get all mem- bers involved in planning pro- grams and upcoming events and welcomes all suggestions and comments. Why not give it a try. Many Thanks! Anyone dropping by the Jew- ish Community Centre these win- ter evenings may get a glimpse of an unusual scene - youngsters climbing, scrambling and jump- ing over an elaborate network of scaffolding.
These forty teens and children are deep into rehearsals for Peter Pan , JCC Theatreworks' eighth annual musical theatre production, which will take place at Centre- pointe Theatre from March 8 to The staging is elaborate and includes the challenge of making Peter fly. Producers Pat and Morris Neu- man are very excited about the production. Indeed, JCC The- alreworks has helped develop the talent of many youngsters in our community.
A number of the cast members in this year's production are veterans of previous JCC The- alreworks plays. Some have also appeared in Orpheus and Compa- ny of Musical Theatre shows. Production staff are experi- enced musical theatre profession- als. The show is directed by Nancy Turner, who is the artistic director and manager of the Ottawa Chil- dren's Festival de la Jeunesse, and a respected veteran of the Ottawa musical theatre community. A full, professional orchestra will be conducted by musical director Drummond Hudson, a mainstay of the community theatre scene in Ottawa, and for many years associated with the RCMP Orchestra and Musical Ride.
Choreography is by Val Keeley- side, another member of Orpheus who has chosen to join this pro- duction to work with the exuber- ant young cast. Peter Pan is based on the time- less classic by Sir James Barrie. The play, first made famous by Mary Martin, has captivated audiences of all ages for 40 years.

Sunday, March 12 p. An endless recitation of names resounded from loud- speakers across the vast cemetery of Birkenau.
But after the mourning and tears, after the speeches and wreath-layings, the commemorations left major questions for the future. They also illustrated that after half a century, the politi- cal as well as personal legacy of Auschwitz is still traumat- ic. As the names were read, many of the several thousand people in attendance lit memorial candles.
Under a light shower of snow, they prayed and wept as they placed the candles on the red brick ruins of the crema- toria where hundreds of thousands of bodies were burned. And they placed them on the rusting rail tracks that brought cattle cars full of Jews - most of whom died - from across Europe. The names and the flickering candles brought home the human tragedy of Auschwitz in an extremely powerful way and served as a fitting conclusion to the official ceremonies and formal speeches.
One of the key questions left after the ceremonies were over was how to build on memory to forge Jewish continu- ity. The new youth centre, whose opening was attended by Jewish and Polish dignitaries, is the fourth such centre to be established in Poland by the Ronald S. Lauder Founda- tion since the fall of the Communist regime five years ago.

It is part of a variety of initiatives encouraging the re- emergence of Jewish life in Poland and other post-Commu- nist countries. Attended by heads of state and representatives of more than two dozen countries, the ceremony on January 27 - televised internationally - was the climax of two days of commemorations marked by conflicts between Jews and Poles as to how Auschwitz should be remembered.
For Jews as well as for most of the world, Auschwitz has become the paramount symbol of the Holocaust. At least 70, Roman Catholic Poles were also killed there, and Poles generally view Auschwitz as the symbol of Polish suffering under the Nazis. Some observers said that focusing so exclusively on Jewish-Polish disputes over Auschwitz tended to obscure the fact that it was the Germans who founded the camp and carried out the horrors. In the end, however, the conflicts had some positive results. For one thing, Jews staged their own separate memorial ceremony on January 26 as a supplement to the official program.
What the conflict also did was to bring the truth about Auschwitz - as well as who died there and why - out into the open in Poland. In this sense it was an educational experience, many participants and observers agreed. Just how much the educational experience was needed was reflected in a survey of Polish attitudes on the Holo- caust and Jews. The survey by the American Jewish Committee, released on the eve of the Auschwitz commemorations, showed in quantitative form how strongly Poles believe they were equal victims of the Nazis.
In the poll, 40 per cent of respondents said both Poles and Jews suffered equally from Nazi persecution. Pressure from Jews, including specific pressure from Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, an Auschwitz sur- vivor who headed the official American delegation, forced the Polish organizers to change the official program to include more Jewish content. He and others succeeded in getting the organizers to start the proceedings with the Kaddish, the prayer for mourning, and other Jewish prayers.
Wiesel also succeeded in convincing Polish President Lech Walesa to include reference to the Jews in his speech. Jakobovits, who fled Nazi Germany as a teenager in , said his feelings were shared by many of the Jews pre- sent at the ceremonies on both days. Both Polish and Jewish participants agreed that the offi- cial pomp and tribute was valid in a political sense, but ran the risk of being purely ceremonial.
Sure they want to express solidarity and they want to deliver a message of peace in the world and all this. JTA - It was Shabbat that few will be likely ever to forget. The ceremonies on Friday, January 27, marking the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concluded late in the afternoon, forcing many Jew- ish participants to stay over in Krakow for Shabbat. It was a Shabbat. It was a Shabbat that provided for many partic- ipants a much-needed emotional release,' in high contrast to the tears and mourning of the commem- orations of the Nazi horrors during the preceding days.
And I think it worked. The daveners, with different levels of obser- vance, represented a wide range of scholarship, Jewish knowledge and experience. They came from different political and communal positions. It brought the synagogue - which often scarcely can muster a minyan - extraordinarily alive. People pour Into the streets of Krakow Some even spilled out into the street to dance following services.

It was healthy to have Shabbat right after the Auschwitz commemora- tions. After Friday night services, about 70 Jews went on to a festive Shabbat dinner in a hotel function room. Guests included the entire spectrum of the Jew- ish world: from Jakobovits and his wife and young Polish Jews just beginning to learn about Jewish life and traditions; from Ambassador Ronald Laud- er, head of the Ronald S.
Lauder Foundation, to the activist American rabbi, Avi Weiss, who had been briefly detained by Polish police after spending sev- eral hours at the church at Birkenau. There were also non-affiliated Jews, both secu- lar and religious, who simply had stayed over for Shabbat. The food was strictly kosher, flown in frozen from London and prepared by a caterer there who is an Auschwitz survivor.
In an atmosphere of almost tangible release after the trauma of the Auschwitz commemorations, pariticipants sang and even danced. There were speeches and divrei Tbrah. The publishers of Marco Polo, a monthly news and commentary mag- azine with a circulation of about ,, terminated the publication within one week of receiving a bar- rage of protests from American Jew- ish organizations and the Israeli gov- ernment. The protests were given consider- able muscle by the decision of major international advertisers to suspend their dealings with the magazine.
The radical crackdown by the pub- lisher surprised protesting represen- tatives from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, American Jewish Committee and Anti-Defamation League, who had mainly asked for an apology and retraction from the editors. Volkswagen and Mitsubishi com- plied almost immediately with the request, and some of the other compa- nies were expected to follow suit. Among men who arrived in Israel in the s, the rate of employment is 75 per cent, which equals that of veteran Israeli men.
Among Ethiopian women, the figure is somewhat lower - one-third of them are employed, in contrast to some 55 per cent of all Israeli women. The difficulty of transition was compounded by the fact that most of the adults had no formal education and were illiterate in their native language. Winter in south Florida: A cultural feast By Rose Kleiner Almost all along the Atlantic coast, as far north as Stuart and Palm Beach, then south to Miami, and on the Gulf coast, the arts in south Florida are flourishing like never before.
The region has become a mag- net for great artists, and for a new generation of tourists. They are making theatre, con- certs and exhibits as much a part of the Florida experience as sun, sand and sea. This was best illustrated recently when almost 60, people attended an outdoor concert by Luciano Pavarotti, on the beach, at Tenth Street, in Miami Beach. South Florida has many arts events of Jewish interest, and good kosher restaurants.
It is also a great area for singles to meet new people from all parts of the continent, and from over- seas, and many singles groups exist for this purpose. In historic Stuart, the Lyric Theatre hosts classical plays, music and dance recitals. There are many synagogues along the Atlantic coast. On the Gulf coast Temple Shalom, in Naples, has services, and vari- ous adult education programs.
The Jewish Center of Marco Island holds services on Satur- day mornings, and has an adult education series through the winter. It is walking distance from the Marriott Hotel, and the beach area. For strictly kosher dining there are many fine eateries in the Miami area.

For Chinese cuisine there is Jerusalem Peking in Miami Beach, and Pinati, which opened recently, serves Middle Eastern foods seven days a week Saturdays pm to midnight. Taub One of the largest investments that most people make is buying a home. Unless you are one of the lucky few who happens to have the capital readily available, you will probably apply for a mortgage loan to finance your home. Before you sign on the dotted line for this insurance, do some comparison shopping; consider the ad- vantages of an individual life insurance to protect your mortgage, which is avail- able from an independent life insurance broker.
An individual mortgage insurance plan is owned by the individual as opposed to being owned by the lender. The ownership of the policy determines the control of the funds at time of death. Hence, in the event of an untimely death, the beneficiary has the choice to either pay off part, or the entire mort- gage, or not pay the mortgage off at all. The mortgage must be paid off. Another advantage to an individual mortgage insurance plan is that it can be structured so that the coverage remains level. The price for the plan can remain level and the insurance can be retained even after the mortgage has been paid off.
The price can change on renewal or any time the lender decides. Moreover, the term of the insur- ance is directly linked to the term of the mortgage and cannot be continued. An individual mortgage insurance plan can be issued from ages 18 to 85 and can be maintained for the entire life of the individual, thus guaranteeing an insurance payout. An individual mortgage insurance plan is portable to any mortgage. You are free to shop mortgage rates available at renewal time, without having to reap- ply for life insurance protection. If you decide to buy a new home or change your mortgage car- rier, the existing insurance is terminat- ed and you must reapply at current age and with current health assessment.
This may limit your options. Finally, an individual mortgage insurance plan can cover both spouses individually. Therefore, after the death of one spouse, there is a payout and the surviving spouse still has coverage. There is no coverage on the sur- viving spouse. From a cost point of view, depending on the ages involved and the mortgage amount, the price for an individual mort- gage insurance plan is very favorable and competitive. Charles S.

Life Insurance For Everyone. In those days pub- lishers put out a disproportionate num- ber of books with male protagonists. Within recent years that rule of thumb has been modified. It now says that about up to age 11 boys do read about boys and girls. Good thing too because more and more Kid Lit features female protagonists who, unlike Nancy Drew, are not even helped by male friends.
Jewish content Kid Lit seems to be following this more politically correct trend, not, I suspect, to be trendy but because in our tradition women have a long history of doing things on their own. Jewish authors, therefore, can draw on many more real life adventures on which to base their plots. Here are two examples.
The date is The place, Lisec in the Aus- tro-Hungarian Empire. Hannah will be sent to her uncle in America. But no. Within weeks of the depar- ture date, the widow decides she needs Hannah to help her support the family in Lisec. Sarah will go. Thus begins the tale of a reluctant year-old immi- grant.
Sarah feels rejected. Hannah feels her future is being sacrificed. By focusing on the decision of which daughter to send and on the journey itself, the author conveys the rupture that some families undoubtedly experi- enced. A few black and white illustrations emphasize the poignancy of this bitter- sweet, easy-to-read chapter book. Ages Based on the early life of Israeli poet and food columnist Arianna Haran, Lydia, Queen of Palestine is a truly funny book about a sensitive and seri- ous subject.
Set in Romania and Pales- tine during the period , the book uses the Sec- ond World War as a backdrop against which one unhappy family plays out its personal drama. On the first page Lydia describes herself as a terror. The rest of the book proves how right she is. Yet, for all her bravura, Lydia is des- perately trying to cope with feelings of loneliness and loss. Throughout, she finds bizarre ways of coping. Universal in its values and concerns, Lydia, Queen of Palestine stands alone in Jewish Kid Lit in its use of humor to transcend pain and offers hope to chil- dren dealing with internal or external terrors that are beyond their under- standing.
