The event below was held on Sunday April 30th, 2006.
It was very well attended by people who were generally baby boomers
and somewhat older.
"EDISON, NEW JERSEY Jewish Singles Meet and Eat Lunch, sponsored by
Circle of Single Jewish Friends, ages 49 and up, at noon on Sunday
April 30th, 2006 c.e. $3 plus cost of meal and tip. Registration
Required. Romano's Macaroni Grill
1521 Route 1 Edison, New Jersey, call 908 668-8450 ."
Note: we added the links to the item in the Star-Ledger, we looked
at the menu, if you keep Kosher Romano's Macaroni Grill is
definitely NOT someplace you want to eat at. How do you feel about
important is it for Jewish events to be held at Kosher Restaurants?
Do you keep
Kosher yourself? Even if you do not keep Kosher yourself do you feel
better statement might be sent by holding Jewish events at Kosher
Judaism has a concept in it called "Pikuah Nefesh To Save A Life".
We can think of nothing more life-saving for the Jewish community in
the long run than the meeting of single Jews, with the object of
matrimony, and the bringing into the world of more Jewish children,
who will be raised as Jews.
If you go to a restaurant to meet another single Jew, and you get
bring Jewish children into the world, and raise those children as
Jews, you are doing a wonderful thing.
We wonder if you might bring your own Kosher food to a non-Kosher
restaurant, or simply abstain from eating if you are at a non-Kosher
restaurant, if you keep Kosher yourself.
Any discussion of this idea? Another idea: suggest to the sponsors
events that the restaurants they hold the events at be Kosher!!!

of the group will become regular viewers of c-span and will call in

Israel fumes as Sweden grants visa
By HERB KEINON The Jerusalem Post
Sweden has broken ranks with the European Union and issued a visa to
minister, enraging Jerusalem and causing discomfort in some other
On Wednesday, the same day that Swedish Prime Minister Goeran
Persson said at a
press conference in Finland that Sweden would not be issuing visas
to two Hamas
representatives, a Swedish diplomat told deputy directors-general of
ministries meeting in Brussels that Stockholm had issued a visa to
Atef Adwan, a
Hamas official and the Palestinian Authority's minister for refugees.
Senior sources in Jerusalem were outraged by the decision.
One official said that it encouraged and legitimized terror, flew in
the face of
international law that makes it illegal to give indirect assistance
organizations, and harmed those trying to create conditions
conducive to a
This showed that in Sweden a hostile attitude toward Israel "is not
politically correct, but also politically beneficial," said one
pointing out that Sweden is to go to elections in the fall and that
strong pro-Palestinian sentiment there.
But Israel was not alone in its criticism of Stockholm's move.
One senior European diplomat said that the decision represented a
between Europe and the US regarding how to deal with Hamas.
"I'm afraid that the result will be that Europe will lose its say in
matters, relegated again to giving money for humanitarian purposes
but left out
of the political/diplomatic dialogue," he said.
These comments came on the same day that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
Knesset that he wanted to deepen the dialogue with Europe.
Olmert said that a plan as "decisive, fundamental and widespread" as
"convergence" plan could not be implemented without a great deal of
understanding from the US and Europe.
He said that Israel would "consult, discuss, and converse" with the
international community to get wide agreement on the parameters of
first with the US, "and also with our friends in Europe."
"Israel wants to improve its understandings and agreements with
countries," Olmert said. "Today's European leaders understand better
complexity of the situation in the Middle East." He said Israel
our dialogue with Europe and will aim at including its leaders in
with the US."
However, Sweden's actions, said the senior European diplomat, would
overtures more difficult. It reflected a deep schism inside Europe -
Sweden - regarding how best to deal with Hamas, he said. He added
there was a wide European consensus that Hamas had to change its
getting international legitimacy, the disagreement was whether the
carrot or the
stick would be best to prod the organization into that direction.
He said that in certain cases the European-financed NGOs in Gaza and
Bank were influencing the policies of their home governments, since
budgets that they didn't want to lose as a result of a cessation of
said these groups were a powerful force lobbying Europe to take a
understanding position toward Hamas.
Adwan received his visa along with seven other Palestinians,
director-general of the PA's Foreign Ministry, to visit the southern
town of Malmo on Saturday. Two Hamas representatives were denied a
visa for May
16 to visit the same city, which hosts the largest Muslim population
One European official said he was very surprised that Adwan had
visa, since EU leaders last month met and decided there would be no
diplomatic dialogue with Hamas until it recognized Israel, renounced
and accepted previous agreements.
The official said that it had been clear from this decision that
to PA ministers would not be issued.
The visa Adwan received is a Schengen visa. Sweden is a member of
Schengen group, which allows freedom of travel to each of these
anyone who has obtained a visa from any member country. However,
cannot be issued if other Schengen countries object.
The European diplomat complained that Sweden simply placed Adwan's
the system" - a system receives thousands of names a day - without
as possibly problematic, something both the Belgians and the French
when they received visa requests from Hamas officials.
But Swedish Ambassador Robert Rydberg told The Jerusalem Post that
the name through the system "according to standard procedure and
procedure includes informing other Schengen countries of possible
Rydberg said the decision to issue the visa "was not a break with EU
since there is no EU policy on the issuing of visas to Hamas
He also said that Adwan would "have no contact whatsoever with any
representatives of the government."
Asked then why Sweden had granted the visa, he said: "We allow a lot
to travel here and there without government officials intending to
contact with them."
Rydberg said that the fact that Hamas was on the EU's list of
organizations means there was a ban on the transfer of funds to the
that no decision had been made regarding travel restrictions.
"The EU could have decided on such sanctions, and we would have been
implement them," he said. "But there are no such sanctions."
This is the second source of Israeli-Swedish diplomatic tension in a
week Sweden triggered a sharp response from Jerusalem when it
dropped out of an
international military exercise once it found out Israel was

VOYAGE OF THE "ST. LOUIS"
On May 13, 1939, the German transatlantic liner "St. Louis" sailed
Hamburg, Germany, for Havana, Cuba. On the voyage were 937

citizens, some were
from eastern Europe, and a few were officially "stateless." The
majority of the
Jewish passengers had applied for U.S. visas, and had planned to
stay in Cuba
only until they could enter the United States. But by the time
the "St. Louis"
sailed, there were signs that political conditions in Cuba might

The voyage of the "St. Louis" attracted a great deal of media
before the ship sailed from Hamburg, right-wing Cuban newspapers with
pro-fascist sentiments announced its impending arrival and demanded
an end to

the story to
millions of readers throughout the world. Though U.S. newspapers

Unbeknownst to them, the passengers were to become victims of bitter

depressed, and many Cubans resented the relatively large number of
