The Suburban Community

Suburban Youngsters to Go
Trick-Treating for UNICEF

By the Oak-Woodser
Goblins with arm bands will
join "trick or treating" young-
sters throughout the suburban
areas on Saturday night, when
they make their annual appeal
for UNICEF, the United Na-
tions International Children's
Emergency Fund.
This is the auxiliary group of
the UN which has received so
much praise and assistance by
leading citizens of the world,
including our own Eleanor
Roosevelt and Danny Kaye.
Students in the upper grades,
too old now to be enthused at
trick. or treat night, will never-
the-less be asking you to "help
the poor"—the poor, the down-
trodden, the hungry, the needy,
the sick- children in -lands all
over the world.
It's really quite appropriate
that appeals for UNICEF be
made at this time, since the
date concurs with the close
of UN Week when we take
stock of the world organiza-
tion's accomplishments and
continue our prayers for its
further successes.
In school this past week chil-
dren learned about the UN, how
and why it was organized, what
it has been able to do until now
and what its potential for the
future will be.
They also learned about
UNICEF and the great hope it
envisions — to build a world
where all children are happy,
where there is no famine, where
there are clothes and shelter
for all.
UNICEF operates on a volun-
tary basis on the governmental
level. In Oak Park, for instance,
. is a special UNICEF Com-
mittee under the chairmanship
of Mrs. Betty Barsdorf.
By working through the
schools, youngsters and their
parents are acquainted with the
purposes of the organization.
Basically, UNICEF was
formed to provide a perma-
nent contribution to the
health and welfare of all chil-
dren by providing supplies

and equipment to all govern-
ments in need, principally to
underdeveloped countries.
It has the further goal of alle-
viating the wants and fears of
youngsters in the event of cases
of famine, flood or other disas-
In some communities collec-
tions will take place in the
schools, and will be made on a
personal basis "from child to
child." In Oak Park, which has
banned school collections, the
UNICEF campaign is conducted
by the children and some of the
So, on Saturday night, when
some young goblin comes ring-
ing your doorbell, armed with a
cannister and a UNICEF arm-
band, he isn't looking for candy
or apples — he's asking you to
share in the pleasure of helping
some youngster who badly
needs your concern.

Appeal Made for
Chachmey Lublin
by School's Dean

Rabbi Moses Rothenberg,
Dean of Yeshivath Chachmey
Lublin, in an appeal for support
of the new school, now located
at 101/2 Mile Rd. and Fairfax,
stated that provisions are being
made for extensive educational
activities in the new yeshiva.

Requesting local congrega-
tions especialy to join in the
plea for funds to make possible
continuation of the Yeshiva's
program, Rabbi Rothenberg
stated that classes are con-
ducted in the school six days a
week, in English and Hebrew as
well as in Bible and Talmud.

The 7- and-8-year-old children
already have learned all the
Five Books of Moses, and - the
8- and 9-year-old class is learn-
ing mishnayoth. The 10-year-old
class has completed Talmud
Mesichto Baio.

Rabbi Rothenberg said that
the school, entirely conducted
on a full day's basis, is staffed
by teachers certified by the
Michigan Board of Education,
and all the regular public
school subjects are taught the
children. He extended an in-
vitation to all Detroiters to
visit the school and stated:
"Our Yeshiva is the only Jew-
ish Day school in Southfield.
Students are making the same
progress in English as in He-
brew. In each class a great
amount of individual attention
is given to every student.
"Because we function only as
a Day School, the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation does not make
any financial contribution. As
a local institution we feel we
are entitled to receive consider-
ation and financial support
from congregations and individ-
uals, to make up for this lack
of maintenance."
