An Open Letter

to the Jewish Community of Greater Detroit:

Most of you are aware, as I am, of the shifting neighborhoods in the
city of Detroit. As a result, there has been a wave of. selling of synagogues.
The trend has been to relocate these synagogues, particularly in the sub-
urbs. In several instances staggering amounts of money have been spent
for new places to worship in. I will not go into detail here as to the merit
of such enterprises.

My concern is for and with the smaller congregations. They seem
inclined to follow the lead of the big ones. They, too, are thinking in
terms of building new synagogues to replace the dislocated ones. Or, fail-
ing in this, to re-locate in stores. I question the necessity of wisdom of
this. It is a fact that several of the existing congregations are now hard
put to attract- a "minian" for their daily morning or afternoon services.
Or both. Let us remedy this situation.

As President of the Congregation Beth Joseph (Rizhiner Shul), I - put
forth this proposition: We invite you, who are presently without syna-
gogues, whether as single worshipers or collectively as a congregation, to
join us. The Congregation Beth Joseph is conveniently located in north-
west Detroit, at 18450 Wyoming. Though moderate in size, it is con-
structed beautifully, and offers complete accommodations.. It is unique
among synagogues in that it is free of any mortgage; there are no assess-
ments of any kind to members; maintenance costs are kept to a minimum.
Moreover our's is a prosperous congregation in an even more important
respect: we have shaharith and minchah-maariv services that are always
attended in large numbers. Sabbath services are stimulating and inspiring.
To you, worthy rabbis and officials of the dislocated synagogues, we extend
this opportunity to become an integral part of it all. No strings attached.

The Rizhiner Shul has played an important role in the Jewish religious
life of Detroit for the past 50 years. It is well known, I'M sure, that our
doors have always been open to the .indigent. Seats for the High Holidays
are always available, free, to those who wish to worship. No Jewish boy
and his parents will ever be denied the simchah of a Bar Mitzvah because
of lack of financial means. Beth Joseph provides its facilities, without
charge, and contributes a substantial Kiddush. All of this is accomplished
without any embarrassment to the families involved. It is in this spirit
that I convey my message, and look forward to discuss these matters per-
sonally with you.

Sincerely yours,


President, Congregation

Beth Joseph, Anshei Rizhin
