TJP V60-51, 12-21-06 p21-25 12/19/06 4:51 PM Page 21 December 21,2006 Health Chanukah Issue Texas Jewish Post 21 Bringing the miracle of independence to blind people in Israel By Sharon Kanon (IPS) — Twenty years ago, Norman Leventhal, a businessman and phil- anthropist from the U.S., invited Noach Braun, a young Israeli with a dream, to join his family in lighting the first candle of Chanukah. Kibbutz-raised Noach Braun, a parachutist who had worked with animals in the IDF and later at a nature reserve, saw the need for Israeli-trained guide dogs. "At that time, Israel had no guide dogs so I went to the U.S. to learn how to train them. Unfortunately, no one would accept me to an apprentice course." A phone call by the Israeli consul in New York to Norman Leventhal, a firm friend of Israel, set in motion the journey to the realization of Braun's dream. "Norman invited me and Orna (Noach's future wife, who is now responsible for the dog kennels) to his home in Pennsyl- vania for the ...

But today, before the holiday goes away for another year, I'd like to talk about the real thing. My inspiration and infor- mation come from CLAL, The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, headquartered in New York, and dedicated to "Many Voices — Strong Communities — One People." "On Chanukah, we play with the dreidelj' CLAL says. "But the dreidel is much more than just a simple game for children. Or perhaps simple games for children are much more complex and meaningful than we often think.,.." And then we're asked to consider lessons from the dreidel: A Great Mir- acle Happened Here — and There. In Israel, and in the Diaspora."We need the insights that flow both from the mira- cles of Israel and from the miracles of Jewish life ...

Saddam's execution revives debate By Leslie Susser JERUSALEM (JTA) — The execu- tion of Saddam Hussein has renewed the debate in Israel over the effect of the American invasion of Iraq on Israel's regional position. Seemingly, the defeat of Iraq and the toppling of Saddam's regime should have served Israel's deepest strategic interests. Saddam was one of Israel's most dangerous foes. Had he succeed ed in developing nuclear weapons, certainly he would have threatened Israel with them. During the first Gulf War in 1991, Sadd...

Amid renewed debate over numbers, UJC may drop population study By Jacob Berkman NEW YORK (JTA) —As debate over the validity of the last national Jewish population study is being rekindled, the primary Jewish census-taker is nearing a decision to discontinue the once-a-decade practice of counting the American Jewish people. When the United Jewish Com- munities found in its 2000-2001 National Jewish Population Survey that the American Jewish popula- tion stood at roughly 5.2 million, the number was widely scrutinized. Most observers were dismayed by the decrease of 300,000 Jews from the UJC's previous population survey in 1990, and critics claimed the UJC had used flawed method- ology. Opponents claimed the UJC had used a flawed methodology for counting Jews, and many were dis- mayed that the new survey showed a 300,000 decrease in Jews from its popu...

"Each ethnic group is divided by different religious leaders, clan interests and tribal leaders," he said. Some Israeli analysts argue that further disintegration of the war- torn Iraqi state could have dire consequences for Israel: A break- away Shiite state in the South could join Shiite Iran in actions against Israel, and al-Qaida groups, allied to an unstable Sunni rump in the center, could export terror to Israel. Others doubt it will come to that. Giora Eiland, the former National Security Council chief, argues that the probability of a breakup of the Iraqi state is low. He says the Kurds in the North are wary of declaring independence bec...

Instead,several top analysts say, the Bush administration wants to get soundings from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and look for ways to encourage their own efforts to advance some kind of peace process. The newest controversy over Israeli settlements, including last week's announcement that the Olmert government has authorized the construction of homes for Gaza evacuees in Maskiot, beyond the Green Line, is unlikely to be much of a factor as Washington considers its options. "It's just a blip" said Seymour Reich, president of the Israel Policy Forum, a group advocating a stronger U.S. p...

Prager is a respected Jewish author who was recently added to the roster of the board of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, which governs the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. But he was publicly spanked by a wide variety of com- mentators and groups (including the Memorial Council) when he wrote that Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the first Muslim to serve in Con- gress, ought not to be allowed to substitute a Koran for a Bible. Prager's argument was that even though the swearing-in ceremony itself was symbolic (members are legall...

The Dallas Furniture Bank, which began providing services in 2003, came to be after Bogen Fields heard over and again, while serving on the board of the Vogel Alcove Childcare Center for the Homeless, of the need of families transitioning from shelters for basic furnishings.

Gross What would you say is the most important factor in what your con- gregation does? Is it the rabbi? The beauty of services? The excellent school for children, and learning opportunities for adults? The helping hand always open to those in need? The friendships formed? The good done in the community? Well — you probably belong to a place that provides and does all of these things, at least to some extent. But if you pay attention to Shawn Israel Zevit, he'll give you a single one-word answer: money Because that's what pays the rabbi, supports the educational efforts, makes social events happen, and chari- table efforts possible. But if you really pay attention to Shawn Israel Zevit, you'll come to understand synagogue money in a different way. And you may even have the opportunity to become a force in your own sh...

Gerald Ford, who died Dec. 26 at 93, signed the Helsinki Declaration in August 1975, along with the leaders of the Soviet Union, Canada and 32 European nations. The agreement required the Soviet Union to respect human rights, including fundamental free- doms of religion, thought and conscience, and contributed to mounting international pressure to free persecuted Soviet Jews. "His administration's signing of the Helsinki accords, which estab- lished a clear link between international relations and human rights, was the most important step in t...
