Future Senator Gary Peters
*Please join us in support of Congressman Gary Peters campaign for the US Senate. As you can see from the dishonest ads against him, we all need to do our best to help Gary win this election. His opponent, Terri Lynn Land, will use her wealth and the (nearly unlimited) wealth of the Koch Brothers to deceive our Michigan public. Bottom line, Gary is more qualified, experienced, skilled and knowledgeable to represent us in the Senate. He has proven his friendship to Israel and has Michigan’s best interest in mind when serving the public. He is a moderate, logical and intelligent leader and it would be a true “shanda” (disgrace) if he didn’t continue to represent us. Please join us at the March 23rd (3-5pm) event at the home of Mindy and Scott Eisenberg. Please contact Hy Safran for more info or to rsvp: Hy@PetersForMichigan.com

New Ann Arborite
Welcome to the world, Aurora Julian Cash, born in Ann Arbor Feb. 10th toElaine and Howard Cash.
Little Fara Naomi is lucky to be born into the wonderful Saulson family headed by Eli and Michele. Welcome to our community!
We’ll be attending this week’s AIPAC Policy Conference. Hope to see some of you there. Looking forward to hearing from lots of Dignitaries and especially the sweet sounds of Israeli musician, David Broza and tunes from his new album, East Jerusalem West Jerusalem.
Proud of Michigan as we acknowledge the 167th anniversary of (the first in the nation) abolishment of the Death Penalty on March 1, 1847. Shame on those States who still use capital punishment with Texas being the “deadliest” State as they have executed 510 people (the most in the nation) since 1976. Yes, some evil souls deserve to die yet our imperfect judicial system also sentences and executes innocent individuals. China is the world leader in executions with over 4,000 Chinese put to death by their (un-admitted) government each year. China’s execution rate is more than the combined total for the rest of the world.
