Is there someone in your family 6 months to 8 years of age who might enjoy Jewish books? Do you know of a family with such a member? The Flint Jewish Federation and members of the Tri-Cities Jewish community with help from the Ravitz Fund is bringing the PJ library to our area. Children of participating families receive a Jewish book each month, free of charge. There will be special story reading programs offered to these families, as well. Sometimes there is also a CD of Jewish music for participants. If you or someone you know would like to join the PJ Library email Susan Low at shlow@sbcglobal.net.

Make sure to participate in the second annual Buy Israel Week, an effort to combat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and promote the purchase of Israeli products. The campaign will feature special discount vouchers through the Buy Israel Week.


"Many consumers are looking for new ways to support Israel beyond political movements and charities, and are unaware of which Israeli products are sold by their local merchants and/or who those local merchants are," said Frances Zelazny, founder of Buy Israel Week. "Our campaign is aimed at building awareness at the consumer level, so that instead of buying products made from another country, their choice is to purchase quality products 'Made in Israel'. See www.buyisraelweek.com

and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/buyisraelweek.


By the way, Federation has some bottles of Zmora wine, a semi-sweet Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel for sale for $5/bottle.  Perfect for Pesach (and kosher for Pesach).



Do you have a photo or two to share?  Are you an aspiring writer or historian who would like to share your memories of the Flint Jewish Community?  Both the Blast and the Jewish Reporter are seeking photo essays, anecdotes,  and stories of the Federation, TBE, CBI, the Ivriah, the JCS, or your "historic" family to publish or slide shows or videos to which we can link.  Please send your article by snail or email to:  ATTN: YOJA Story Editor 619 Wallenberg St., Flint, MI 48502 or fjf@tm.net

Jewish Federations Promote Inclusion of People with Disabilities

To mark Jewish Disability Awareness Month this February, Jewish Federations across North America organized dedicated activities to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the Jewish community. JFNA also brought 40 community leaders to Washington for Jewish Disability Advocacy Day, and is encouraging communities to apply for the 2013 Ruderman Prize in Disability, which will provide $250,000 in funding to recognize innovative programs and services that foster full inclusion of people with disabilities in the Jewish community worldwide.
