Viewpoint Need to Nurture ByfUcbard Pearl ByfUctiardPMtfl Let's put aside, for a moment, such super-modem terms as "shuttle diplomacy" and all that it deals with in the big world out there and, instead, let's pick up an old term—'•nurturing"-and take a ioolc Inside at the worM In virhlch each of us lives his daily existence, the world in which we have the power to affect changes for the better. Nurturing is coming Into uae these days by the many people who have been exposed to the new psychology of transactional analysis, or the "I'm OK-Youre OK" school. Aa I understand it, nurturing is sort of nourishment plus love—mother's milli plus, mother's love that helps people build socially positive aspects of their persooalities. There are thoae around us— myself included—who leel we are in a nurturing crisis, particularly when it comes to developing leaders In our organizations. When you nurture aomeooe, you make Um grow Into a mature, reapooaibls adult, these students of modani psychoioiy say. And if community organisation leaders nurture their young iiieiiilwf—and even their noiao-young members—(hey turn them into reeponrible, in-' spriatfcinal leaders. There are those around usmyself included—who feel we are In a leadership nurturing crisis, both nationally aJid at home.

As of last Monday's deadline for registering, only atxMit one-third of those invited had reqMnded—which should say something about the situtation. Co-chairpersons for the seminar are Jeanette Nadoff and Arlene Fredricks, who has been Involved in such training sessions before and who says the national situation is that "most leaders do lead by accident. "They give no thought to motivating others and so they turn off the others," she said, adding that this Is where "nurturing" is needed.

Ourlaadiiridp today is unTbere are, she says, valid reasons for our service organizations to exist. But, without people wtm care and who are Involved, these wganizatlons will not continue to be viable, and without new leaders, they Just won't survive. "And without the Involvement of their meml>ershlp, these organizations have no reaaon to be." With the very Jewiah purpose of performing mitzvot— good deeds—as the basis of these organizatlona, how can we afford not to respond? It should Jar us somewhat, but here's a related observation from Arlene (and. Incidentally, no one ffoiMf Is even to be considered as the sole target of this column) : "There are fewer young mothers today who are taking their kids with them to meetings like we. In my generation, used to do. Now they take them (the children) with them to tennis clubs." she said, noting the change In emphasis toward monetary values. Today, If a person Isn't paid to do a Job, the Job has little value.—even If It's a "Job" like volunteering to help the i¥>n-nursing home elderly or working for non-Jews on their holidays. It would seem that the "mitzvot" of doing good deeds starts with the"mitzyot" of taking the children along to your organIzat ion's meetings—and mayt>e also the "do-yourself-a-mltzvot" of calling Barb MeCormIck at the Center (334-8200) and registering for this leadership clinic. If the foregoing sounds strong for a first column, ao be It. I've lived in Omaha four years now and I've liked this city from the first day. It has always seemed like the kind and size of city in which a young fellow can find opportunity and can make the moat of It If he's wlUIng to^ work. And t>esldes, what could be j better than for a young Jewish j writer from another river city J (St. Louia) than to work for the Jewish paper in hisj adopted city?

What 'The House' Means to Me

Bluffs News

on Sunday mornings, • the House symlMllzes a lorm of creative expression. In large measure, the social and cultural activities of the past year have made me appreciate the meaning of Judaism in a way that transcends the religious experiences I had at home and goes beyond my academic growth at tj»e University. The Des Moines Jewish community and the House are symbolic of the progressive attitude of the Des Moines Jewish community — a community that cares, about Judaism and concerned about its future. At Drake, this is best reflected In the work of DavM Shneyer, coordinator of the Jewish Student Center, who has made it his iNisiness to make the Jewish experience meaningful and worthwhile. Yet, in the final analysU, it's 19 to Ute students to determine what Involvement, If any, they will liave in shaping tlieir lives from a Jewish point of view. The old idiom, "It's what you make of It," applies here. — The Houas has bad an eaonrnmi tnpaet oa my cMlege years. I only «M that buUdIng facilities could be expanded so that an increasing number of Dralu students could take advantage of the fine programs and activities that are being developed.

Guest entertainer for the day will be the Internationally known singer Geula Gil, who iias an unusual, three-octave voice that has earned her excellant reviews wiierever ilte'sappearad. Her career l>egan while she was in the Israeli army and has developed to where she's recording for Columbia Records (ao allNims to date), a Broadway Tony Award nomination and three motion pictures, in addition to having performed numerous concerts. The program Is being sponsored by the Jewish
