On a recent trip to Israel, Rabbi Robert Klensin of Temple Beth Shalom in Arnold was surprised by the similarities between Israel and the USA.

On his first night in Ra'anana, north of Tel Aviv, Rabbi Klensin went with his Israeli family to exchange some outdated Gulf War gas masks. The next night, everyone went to a Tupperware party.

Although gas masks are an accepted part of their life, the Israelis couldn't understand how Rabbi Klensin (who says he felt safer in Israel than in most American cities) can live in the United States with the daily fear of car jackings and accidental shootings.

The Rev. Terry Schoener, minister at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church, tells about a letter received by a congregation member from the Transplant Resource Center of Maryland Inc.

A terminally ill member of this person's family had instructed that, upon her death, any useful organs should be donated to the center. The letter detailed the results of her generosity.

Her heart was successfully transplanted into a man with a family; two people received her kidneys; skin was used for burn patients; veins were used for coronary bypass surgery; bone went to help patients with injuries to the spine; and the corneas restored the sight of two teen-agers.
