Rumors have been spread in and around Detroit about the Congregation
Beth Joseph, 18450 Wyoming Avenue. Some individuals, who should know
better, are saying that our synagogue will undergo an extreme change of policy;
some have gone so far as to say that our place of worship will be sold.

As President of the Congregation Beth Joseph Anshey Ruzhin, let me
emphasize that such rumors have no basis in fact. What logic is there, and
what would be our reason for giving up? We are free from any debts. Our
financial position is secure. We are making an important contribution (we
have done this for•the past fifty years) to Jewish life in this city. With God's
help, we hope to continue for years to come.

The work of Congregation Beth Joseph will go on under the existing
administrative policy. We intend to grow ,by continuing to serve Jewry in
Detroit as faithfully as in the past. This means that we welcome "daveners"
to our daily services, both morning and evening, as well as on the Sabbath.
It means, also, that we offer the facilities and services of our synagogue for
Bar-Mitzvahs, without undue restrictions to Jewish boys and without embar-
rassment to parents who might deny their sons this great event, because they
lack the financial means. We are not doing this as a favor to them. Rather,
we consider this as an honor bestowed upon us.

I repeat, and I urge you: Do not pay attention to unfounded rumors.
