Passover Memories Linger
in Life's Continuing Chapter

YI of Greenfield Has
Novel Building Plan

A new approach to the prob-
lem of raising synagogue build-
ing funds has been taken by
newly-organized Young Israel of
Greenfield, according to Rabbi
Samuel H. Prero.
The congregation, which on
May 3, will hold ground-break-
ing ceremonies at the site of the
building, has contacted business
firms who are making material
and labor available, as dona-
tions to the synagogue.
To date, Rabbi Prero said,
cement, sand and steel beams
have been received as gifts. At
the ground-breaking exercises, a
complete list of benefactors will
be announced.
Leon M u t c h n i c k, building
fund treasurer, advises that it
is expected that construction on
the first wing of the building
will be completed by August.
The synagogue is to be located
in Oak Park's 10 Mile-Green-
field area.
