Long Island Residents
Claim Rabbi's Catering
Causes Traffic Jam
to The Jewish News)
NEW YORK—A town board in
suburban Long Island began an in-
quiry Wednesday into complaints
by residents, most of them Jews,
that a rabbi was operating a "Bar
Mitzvah factory" and a Kosher ca-
tering business which were creat-
ing traffic hazards.
The target of the complaints of a
group of residents of Syosset was
Rabbi Morris Appleman, spiritual
leader of the 2,500-member East
Nassau Hebrew Congregation.
Members of the Syosset Homeown-
ers and Birchwood Park Associa-
tion made the charges at a meeting
of the Oyster Bay town board.
An Association member said it
was embarrassing for the resi-
dents, largely Jewish, to seek ac-
tion against a rabbi, "but he is
hiding behind a church cloak and
we've got to do something about
it." They c h a r g e d that Rabbi
Appleman had expanded his cater-
ing service beyond the needs of his
congregation and was violating a
zoning ordinance. They expressed
concern over mounting automobile
traffic resulting from the weekend
catering services at the synagogue.
Rabbi Appleman denied all the
charges, replying that thare was
no issue but that the residents "are
making a problem."

are hard to break.
Like drying clothes outdoors. But most of the things you
hear about fresh air drying are myth. Because a gas
dryer dries your clothes softer, cleaner—and just as
sweet smelling. Without exposing them to harsh winds
or the dust that's in the air.
A gas dryer does the job when fresh air can't. Al
midnight. Or in a rainstorm. We can't claim that gas,
like air, is free. But you can do five loads in a gas dryer
for the cost of doing one in the other kind.

your dealer or Michigan Consolidated Gas Company,

have a Gas Company representative come out to your
home and talk with you about the advantages of gas
dryers. One of them is free installation. Inside.
