The evening was a huge success for the organizers and a pleasant surprise for the artists and the Zacks and their family. **We were only expecting around 200 people,-said JCC Cultural Arts coordinator Vivienne Davicioni, *'so we were very pleasantly surprised by the 350 that turned out.**. **It*s absolutely fabuloust;** enthused Gertrude Zack, whose artwork is currently on display there and after wl^om,.^ along with her husband, the gallery is named. hope that it (the gallery) will draw attention to all the other wonderful developments of the Centre,*' she told The Bulletin. The gallery*s high vaulted ceilings and skylights lent an air of spaciousness to what would otherwise have seemed an over-crowded event. Many guests seemed surprised by the JCe reconstruction. In his welcoming. speech, JCC executive director Gerry Zipursky invited all those present to attend the Centre's grand opening gala planned for Sept. I. "Twenty-five years ago its founders had a vision for the JCC and thanks torthem we have what we have today," he said.

"We intend to have three classes,** said Charles Siegal, parent coordinator for Or Shalom, "one for kids aged five and six, one for seven and eight year olds and one for nine, ten and 11 year olds.** He stressed that effort was made to keep the class size small so more can be accomplished. "We would like six to eight-kids per class. 1 don*t think we would go beyond 12 children per class.** The curriculum focuses on Torah and history, Jewish ethics and niitzvot, holidays, customs and Hebrew. Creative expression, especially through music is encouraged, according to the schooKs registration announcement. Or Shalom describes its congregation as Traditional Egalitarian. "Many of us remember our V elementary Jewish schooling with dread. So we want the kids to be excited about learning things Jewish. Obviously everyone wants the kids to learn about everything, but the spirit of learning is more important to us than learning Hebrew by rote,** Siegal explained.

The women are generally stronger dancers than the men and they also seem more comfortable on stage: Some of the dances are very limited in their inventiveness. The Chassidic ones for exiarn-ple, essentially, just use the familiar cliehes of shrugs and plealiinggestiires that we have seen before. All in all, the members of the company iare better dancers than their choreography shows. Perhaps upon their return, the Shalom Dancers might commission a Judith Marcuse or a Linda Rabin to work with them. They are capable of it. Also supporting the dancers during the evenings were Myrna Rabinowitz and Shir Hadash. The trio — Susan Polsky, who replaced Hanna Siegel, Harley Rothstein, and Rabinowitz — sang some of their original songs. ^ Alan Farber, president of the JCC, read greetings from Prime Minister Brian Mulro-ney and the Hon. Jdtin Fraser which arrived too late to be included in the program along with messages from Premier Vander Zalm and Mayor Campbell. A familiar face was recently featured in Kol IsraePs (Israel Radio International) periodical when Sara Manobla was* pictured busily at work on her weekly English language magazine program. Studio Three. Manobla*s program covers IsraePs vibrant arts science. Her approach is eclectic, reports the periodical, covering the full range of performing arts from the Israel Phil- harmonic to jazz and folk. Judaica and historical exhibitions alongside the avante, garde. Studio Three is broadcast on Thursdays at 1100, 2230 and 0100 (GMT). Kol IsraePs broadcasts reach Vancouver on shortwave at four, five and six p.m. at 9815,9435,7460 kHz and at nine p.m. on IjfSO, 9815, 9435 and 9010 kHz. -t it was too hot fora concert. The room was sweltering. The cooUng system couldn't be turned on because all the electricity was needed to work the theatrical equipment. Turn on the fans and the entire system would blow. But the audience stayed, pridefully cheering on their dancers as they fanned themselves with programs and drank gallons of pop. And the stage was too small. It was a miracle that the dancers didn't collide or fall all over themselves. They performed with much grace and skill as they overcame the limits of the Jewish Community Centre's stage June 15 and 16. That miracle and the encouraging support from the community are two reasons why the JCC's Shalom Dancers are going to Irael as the Canadian representatives^ to ihe 1988 Carmiel Dance festival. The evenings were a "send off as the troupe performed J[2 works of Israeli and Chassidic themes. Because of the small stage, one could only get a glimpse of the full range of the company.
