Widman explained that the CASA program trains volun- teers from throughout the county to work one-on-one with children who have been brought before the juvenile court, not because the children themselves are in trouble, but because it's been alleged that the parents are unable to take care of them. A volunteer is matched with one of the dozens of qualifying children. Mark Pelter of Quincy has been chosen as the new direc- tor of the program. "The court system is often not able to focus specific atten- tion on the individual needs of each child," said Pelter. "CASA works to ensure that the needs be starting shortly. No special experience is required to be- come an advocate. The main requirement is a commitment to help the life of one child among our county's most vul- Registered Architect CA Lic.

Cecilia Butcher, speaking on behalf of Jews for Jesus, will answer that question in a presentation called "Christ in the Passover" at Lake Almanor Community Church, 2610 Highway A-13, Lake Almanor on Friday, April 13, at 7 p.m. Using a visual display of tra- ditional Passover accouter- ments, the "Christ in the Passover" presentation en- hances the Christian's under- standing and appreciation of the Jewish background of the Christian Communion. An- cient and modern Jewish cus- toms are discussed and de- scribed with an emphasis on the aspect of redemption, which Christ accomplished at Calvary. A table is set with the tradi- tional Jewish Passover items, including representative foods, which are explained, but not eaten. The ceremonial seder plate, the three-compart- ment pouch in which the mat- zo (unleavened bread) is kept, as well as the traditional cup of Elijah are presented, and new insights to their christo- logical significance are provid- ed. Jews for Jesus has presented this demonstration in over 5,000 churches. It was original- ly written in 1956 by Moishe Rosen, the founder and former executive director of Jews for Jesus. The presentation was abstracted from the writings of the late Rabbi Leopold Cohn, who came to faith in Jesus in 1894 and died in 1936. Rosen contends that some of the most important elements of Christian doctrine, such as the Trinity, the principle of substitutionary atonement and salvation through a per- sonal relationship with the Messiah, are implied in the seder (Passover feast) as ob- served by Orthodox Jews even today. "The Christ is the Passover presentation is one way Jews for Jesus can help churches appreciate the Jewish roots of the Christian faith." Rosen said, "though our primary ministry is to those who do not yet believe in Jesus." Jews for Jesus is an evange- listic agency best known for creative methods and materi- als. Their literature deals with contemporary themes includ- ing anything from current films to chemical waste. "Broadsides" use humor and clever illustrations, yet have a serious message: namely, that Jesus is the promised Messiah for both Jews and Gentiles. Jews for Jesus also commu- nicates through original Jew- ish gospel music and drama, which is presented by mobile teams such as the Liberated Wailing Wall. The organiza- tion has permanent branches in seven North American cities (San Francisco, Los An- geles, Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Washington D.C. and Fort Lauderdale) as well as over 70 chapters spanning some 30 states. The group's in- ternational branches are head- quartered in Johannesburg, London, Paris, Odessa, Moscow, Tel Aviv and Sydney, with developing work in Ger- many. Rosen said, "Our message is not new, but we're telling it in a new way. For too long the Jewish roots of Christianity have been forgotten." In keeping with the Jewish context of Christianity, he and his wife have co-authored a book titled "Christ in the Passover." ! m m m mm m m m m m m I * Install up to S qts, motor oil I Install new oil filter Lube all grease fittings check all fluid levels I = Inspect & adjust tire pressure Preventative maintenance inspection.
