I appeal to you to assist us in securing .the necessary funds for the completion of the
projected building on 101/2 Mile Road and Southfield.
New facilities are vitally needed for the children of the Beth Yehudah Schools and its
Day School — the oldest and largest in Detroit.
These youngsters are the future leaders of our 'people. They are the future citizens of
our American Jewish community and they must be given the best traditional education
that can be made available for them under the most inviting conditions in an environment
suitable for modern schooling.
It is both the American and the Jewish traditions that beckon to us to make such a school
facility available for our youth,- and we haVe confidence that we shall have the
encouragement and support of all Detroit Jews Who are cognizant of the great need.
We have- made available for our community large and beautiful synagogues, at great
costs. Now we must make certain that these syhagogues will be utilized and filled
by appreciative youth who will be loyal to our-faith and who will perpetuate the ideals of our elders.
It is with pride that we are now selecting a. committee of participating Detroit leaders,
to aid us in our campaign..
The task we have undertaken is a holy one. It is sacred in its scope and it aims to fill
a need that must not be overlooked.
We appeal to you to assist us in this great task.
Give us your aid, and we shall emerge as a community that knows how to honor and
respect its heritage.
