      Segment 1

      What do a Phd in Islamic History, a children's book on a Confederate
      soldier's Pesach seder with a Yankee family and "One Little Chicken'
      have in common?  Elka Weber, of course.  This charming, intelligent
      and thoughtful woman has written her second book for kids, this one on
      Jewish values.  The message comes via a delightful story involving the
      first century Galilean Rabbi Chanina ben Dosa, a stray chicken and the
      lengths his family goes to in order not to benefit from something that
      doesn't belong to them. Her books are distributed by PJ Library which,
      in partnership with local communities, provides families with
      high-quality children's books, music, and other resources that foster
      Jewish learning and create a gateway for deeper engagement in Jewish
      life.   And for the rest of us available at major retailers. 

      Law professor Avi Bell made the headlines when he debated Richard
      Goldstone 4 days before his (partial) recanting of the infamous Report
      and perhaps pushed the latter in the right direction.  Eve speaks with
      him today about the inabiity of the Israeli government to keep Beduin
      from stealing land in the Negev and the proposed solutions to this
      impossible situation.  There's dry law, however, and then there's
      reality, and perhaps a mix of carrot and stick is needed to even
      semi-solve the time bomb that years of willful blindness has created.

      Segment 2

      'Genesis at the Crossroads' has worked at peace-building through art
      and education over the last 11 years. Founder and executive director
      Wendy Sternberg, MD from Chicago arrived in Israel this week and spoke
      with Eve about her overwhelming desire to break barriers thru art and
      music. A series of cross-cultural performances, master classes with
      various artists- such as Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary fame-are
      scheduled and they're bringing their humanitarian instrument donation
      program to youth in Bedouin communities, a special passion of hers.
      Wendy is putting together an ensemble of Arab and Jewish Israeli youth
      to cross-culturally work and create together.  Members of the general
      public and media are invited to a series of performances in Beer Sheva
      (AHD Math-Sciences Academy) Sept. 15 at 7p.m.); Sept. 17 at 8p.m.) and
      Jerusalem International YMCA , Sept. 18 at 7p.m.); Tel Aviv-Yafo
      (Arab-Jewish Community Center of Yafo), Sept. 21 at 7p.m.)    One can
      only admire her commitment and hope that the sound of music will tune
      out the cacophony of hate.

      Logotherapist Batya Yaniger believes in healing through meaning.  She
      explains to Eve what this therapy is, how it's universal and Jewish,
      and how one can better their lives no matter where they live.  Hear
      the fascinating story of its creator, Holocaust survivor Viktor
      Introductory course in Viktor Frankl's logotherapy (Hebrew) starting
      October 25 at Midreshet Emunah 9:30-12:45 Tuesday mornings
      HaChil 43, French Hill, Jerusalem Call 532-4112. Ongoing
      correspondence course in English based on the UNISA course of Dr.
      Teria Shantall and recognized as the preliminary requirement towards
