Mrs. Simon: Calendar, Welcome Tasks Ahead


. ' ^

OMAHA — The problems of firmly etiabliahing a community calender In the mhids of Omaha's Jewish com-, munlty members and lo welcoming Jewish newcomers arc among the major tasks facing the Omaha Federation of Jewish Women's Organizations this year, says Its new president, Miriam Simon. The wife of Ervin Simon succeeds Mrs. Morris C. (Mary) Pellmao as president o( the organlzatkMi of 13 Omaha Jewish women's groups. Concerning the calendar, •he said that making it a function of the Jewish PederatkMi of Omaha - th« Jewish community's umbrells arganlullon - "was a step In ttMrightdlnctkmbulsofarlt leaves much to be desired

because people either still don't know about it or don't use it." 1lNt« are ami attaaboM whara more than ooa organisaUoa has sdMdulad a fUDCtioa for tiis sanatliBaor day - mue^ to the dttrtatant oflhe pOtft aod tbeooomaiity.

But non-use of the calendar has not been limited to Pederation departments, Mrs.

Simon noted, adding, "Every organization In the city — men's or women's — should use the calendar. That's the only way to make it effective." Persons or groups wanting to clear dates are asked to write Ms. McCormick at the Community Center, 333 So. 132nd St., Omaha e8l54. If a particular date is already taken, she will help a group find another. And she will also try to help groups avoid scheduling similar functions — such as two donor luncheons or two business meetings — on the same day. As for welcoming new residents — both families and single Individuals - Mrs. Simon noted that "we need help in knowing who Is new to our community. We would like people to tell us If they're new

when, say, they order the Jewish Press, or If they happen to know of new residents In town. "We also need help In planning welcoming functions and In getting newcomers Involved in community projects."

DES MOINES - A number o( weeks ago, SMomo Benderly received a letter (rom the American Aasodatlon of Jewish Educatkm stathig that all of the Hebrew schools which belong to this associatkm had been placed on the Arab black list. Shlomo used this as a discusskm tcpic In a sicha during the UJA Day retreat, posing a very interesting quesUon to those of us who were bi his group — "Why would the Bureau of Jewish Ekiucatlon In Des Moines, Iowa, or anywhere else in the United States be placed on such a list? A(ter all, what does a Hebrew school have to do with the economic interests of the Arabs?" As with many quMtions, perhaps the best way to express an answer is by posing another question — What could be more important than providing a well-rounded education (or the Jewish youth o( today? Are we not the (uture o( the Jewish community here in DM Moines and do we not have a major role to play In the preservation o( our Jewish State and bi aiding our bretheren throughout the world? Tlw answer to tUs queatloo may be ioiaid bi lookh« back . throu^ our history. Ttane and tinw agala Ibe spiirsason have dsitnyad our matvlal aaeta, but wbsB It came to our Idaala and our straw tallb la the teacUnp at Judaism, BBtUng could ovetpowerM. I believe that we can all take special pride In being given thia honorable position on the Arab blacklist (l( you'll excuse the term), but of course more bnpnrtantly, we can take even greater pride In being honored with the ChariM Goodall Award (or our achievements In establishing an buiovatlve and very high level of Jewish Education. In looking back at the changes which have taken place during my eight years o( Involvement at the Bureau and In comparing It with some of the storlM I have heard about the old Talmud Torah, the Bureau Is truly deserving o( the honor which adds to our

Jimmy BeUn'i outatandlng record of lieing not out three times In five minutes and of leelng how many times I, could escape unnoticed througb the luUiroom window. It's nelly kind M strsi«s, iM nuidi as I oonplalMd,

Miiew sehpgi wfeicb I wsoM BSt give V tv snytMng tweaas* I nisBsd so modi when I wM away. TlMte past two years in Hebrew High Sciud, I have come to re»liie Just bow special the Bureau It. It is ' a place where the past, the present, and the future are all • brought together througb a wide variety of courses. It l> a place where Jewish youUi can gather together not only to learn, but also to have (un. Along with the Jewish Identldcatloi) Committee, Uie Bureau gives us Uie opportunity to earn scholaniiipi (or sumnaji camps and going to Israel. This serves as great incentive (or participation in Bureau activities and the experiences which we have at summer camps and in Israel play a major role in intensUytng the education that we receive here la Dei Moines. As Shlomo puts it, "the Bureau Is not Just a place of giving and taUng... it Is a place where the true meantog o( caring and duuing may be experienced." The Bureau Is a place viiere everyone .,< can do their own thing and by some blessed miracle It all results In a meaningful experience (or eveiyooe. The Bureau is a place where people can give o( themselves knowing that the place they have given Is appreciated and adds measurably lo the total picture.

The 'JAWS' If you can brave the long lines, the new movie "Jaws" at Indian Hills is an exciting, dramatic and realistic tale about a Great White Shark. It's a classic movie of man vs. animal with a suspenseful outcome.
