Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah seized the initiative in mid-May, by backing a call by Palestinian prisoners for a Palestinian state along the pre-1967 borders with Israel.

Rabbi Gershon hailed the "incredible moment in the history of our congrega- tion," 122 years after a group of 12 Jews gathered in a small store near Elm and Pearl streets in downtown Dallas, secured a small Sefer Torah and called their new shul Shearith Israel, or the Remnant of Israel.

But privately, some expressed unease that a weakened, beleaguered adminis- tration was abandoning its tough approach to Teheran in favor of the Euro- pean policy of incentives and dialogue. "People are asking: Is this a slippery slope that will lead to a real softening of the U.S. posi- tion — or is this setting the stage for stronger action later?" said an official with one major Jewish group in the capital."We just don't know the answer, but people are nervous." In a sharp policy shift, the adminis- tration agreed to join the Europeans and others in talks over a package of eco- nomic and political incentives for Iran if it giv...

NEW YORK (JTA) — The threat of nuclear weapons is once again a part of the American conscious- ness. Terrorist groups are seeking to acquire unsecured weapons, and mercurial nations like Iran and North Korea want to join the nuclear club. Military experts warn of the pos- sibility of a nuclear strike on an American target within the next 10 years. What are we to do? How should the Amer- ican Jewish community respond to these developments? Earlier this spring, the Rev. William Sloane Coffin — one of the great religious activists of the 20th century — died. From his deathbed, Coffin convened a group of national religious leaders to help revitalize the nuclear disarmament movement. I joined Faithful Security because I believe that it is sinful OrN.

Make sure it will pay off If your family has to wait in line to take a shower, or if you're storing pots and pans in the laundry room due to lack of cabinet space, it could be time to consider a home remodeling project. Not only will an updated space make your house more pleasant for you and your family, it can pay off in higher resale value. To find out if your project will add to the resale value of your home, take stock of other houses in your neighborhood. Have many of them been upgraded in the past few years? If your house is the only one around without a finished basement, that would be a good project to consider. If everyone on the block has added a bathroom or upgraded their master suite, these projects would pay off as well. On the other hand, you may not want to price your house out of the market by adding a third or fourth garage ...

Gordon spoke to friends and leaders of the Jewish community about his Center for Mind-Body Medicine's (CMBM) Healing the Wounds of War pro- gram for Israel. Debra Kaplan, a psychotherapist and faculty member for CMBM, worked with Dr. Gordon on a pre- vious mission to Israel. As she introduced Dr. Gordon, she told the room, "This man is a beacon of light...he spreads hope...and his greatest wisdom lies in his heart." Such an emotional introduction was fitting for the man who has made the connection between Western medicine and ancient healing techniques that teach others to help themselves. In an August 2000 People magazine article about his experiences in war-torn Kosovo, he was quoted as saying, "We have a great and larg...

One of them "makes it" while the other one cant get a break... sounds like the stuff movies are made of. It is no coincidence that the filmmakers and stars of the new independent film "Shoots & Lad- ders" happen to be Barry Wernick, a Jewish kid who grew up in Dallas and Lance Greene, an Irish Catholic lad from Boston who met on a New York movie set doing extra work. But that, Wer- nick says, is pretty much where the similarity ends.

In Israel the Kohanim-priests rise to bless the congregation every single morning. However, in the Diaspora the Ashkenazi lews include this special benediction only on the festivals. Nevertheless there are many lifecycle celebrations, such as circumcisions, redemptions of the firstborn, b'nai mitzvah and even weddings, which are punctuated by this priestly blessing. In effect, the Kohen-priest stands as G-d's representative, as the "agent of the Compassionate One," as the spiritual leader and as the Torah teacher — and in this func- tion as teacher and gui...

Today, the Israeli physical education teacher and dance specialist is teaching others to use movement as a means to replace violence. Using a self-created method called Movement in Time (MIT), Bar-Gil com- bines popular music and simple communal movements to promote nonvi- olence and to help cultivate an inner desire for peace. MIT is effective with young chil- dren, teenagers and adults, according to Bar-Gil, because it allows people to break down barriers — both within themselves and with the people around them. "I have found that when you build an atmosphere, using humor, love, and play, kids will learn much more than if you force them by giving them orders" he told ISRAEL21c. "...
