It all started, Eliad told me, when she was sitting in the Frank Sinatra Cafeteria of the Hebrew University's Mount Scopus campus on July 31, 2002. She was having lunch with a close friend, David Diego Lad- owski, who was about to leave for his first diplomatic posting at the Israeli Embassy in Peru. That's when a bomb went off, killing nine, including David, and injuring 86, among them Eliad. "I was wounded in the back of my head and neck," Eliad said. "My right eardrum was perforated. I still have traces of metal in my legs." It was not a suicide attack. The mass killer ignited the bomb and fled to save his own life. "Amazingly," Eliad said, "he returned the next day to help in the clean-up of the cafeteria he destroyed. When the police identified him, they found he was an Israeli Arab citizen who was employed as a carpenter on the campus. He belonged to a terrorist cell made up of Israeli Arabs." Eliad, who is 29, is engaged to a computer engineer and works as a research coordinator at the art museum of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. She related her story at a reception in Manhattan for the Israel Project, a non-profit organization founded by Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi to educate the public about Israel. Arye Mekel, Israel's former UN deputy ambassador and newly named consul general in New York, vowed that Israel will not slack in its fight against terrorism, "Despite the UN," he said, "Israel will continue to build its protective fence." Mekel introduced the victims of terror, among them Lea and Yossi Zur of Haifa. Their son Assafwas on a bus returning from the ORT Chana Senesh School on March 5, 2003, when a suicide bomber struck, killing 16 people. "Asaf was 17 years old and loved to surf," the father said. "His monument is shaped like a surf board." Tried and true trouper Anna Moffo Sarnoff was at the Waldorf recently to present an award to Luciano Pavarotti. Anna fell on stage, got up, made her speech and left to see the doctor. Two weeks later the brave gal was back at the hotel. She wouldn't miss the annual luncheon of the Albert Einstein Col- lege of Medicine's national women's division. After all, she was presenting an award to Rita Rosen that was named in memory of her mother-in-law, Lizette Sarnoff (whose husband David was president of NBC). With such dedicated supporters, no wonder the women's division has raised some $100 million. Rita Rosen said she'd always wanted to be an actress - and win an Oscar. But as fate would have it, in 1946 she fell in love with a returning naval officer, raised three wonderful children, and over the years used her drama training in her volunteer work for the women's division, o, As she accepted her volunteer award from Sarnoff, Rosen exclaimed, "I think I just got me Academy Award!" See "Boxer" on page 18 call stgoJvs I have found that the only "lists" that work for me are my "to-do" lists. Using a"wish list" as a loose guide for dating prospectives is not a bad idea. The only problem that can arise from such a checklist is the ten- dency to get carried away. It can place too many restric- tions in your dating pool and cause you to search for what's never to be found. Have you recently looked at personal ads people post on singles' web sites? Some of the requirements people desire in a mate are downright fanciful. I've come across interesting potentials that I never con- tacted because I didn't fit their exact bill. I either didn't fall within their age range, had the wrong hair color, or didn't maintain a year-round golden tan. An example of one of these ads reads: "Hi, how r u? My name is Bill and I'm looking for someone athletic, petite, and who shares my interests, hobbies, etc." But if these people are seeking perfection, then I recommend they get a lifetime membership and find a good photographer who can update their picture annually. Do you know anyone who can fit into these molds? I find the Jewish population restric- tive enough; why further limit your options? Instead of listing the abso- lute attributes you desire in a potential mate, perhaps try listing some imperfections that y9u could live with- - without thinking you can change them. If your list of standards is too high, you might miss the perfect person who's just an arm's length away just be- cause they didn't meet your exact specifications. So for those of you who are secretly toting around a wish list in your head or in your pocket, find it, take it out and re-evaluate it. Consider this Can you live up to your ideal's ideal?
