Orchard Lake Residents Form Charter Membership 0-w Young Israel Starts Construction
Drawing mainly upon unaffiliated
residents in Birmingham, Bloom-
field Hills, Orchard Lake and neigh-
boring areas, a new Reform con-
gregation was formed this week to
be known as The New Temple.
Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Solomon,
Mr. and Mrs. Julian Scott and Mrs.
Janet D. Lynn, who spearheaded
the organizational effort, stated
that the invitation to membership,
which already includes 30 faniilies,
is not intended to pirate members
from other existing congregations
and that the formation of the new
temple is, they are convinced, a
result of a need felt by the new
congregants for a plaCe of worship
based on "mutuality of interests."
"There has been no "raiding of
other temples" Mrs. Lynn said. She
said some of the congregants may
c-ome from other congregations,
but their number is minimal and
they are not enrolling , as dis-
