THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Fired Teachers File
Unfair Labor Charge;
Faculty Joins Protests

On Wednesday, two dis-
charged Shaarey Zedek teachers
filed an unfair labor practices
charge against the congregation
with the State Labor Mediation
Board. They charge that they were
fired to discourage the proper
functioning of the school's re-
cently formed teachers' association
_-- "and the coercion of association
members on the eve of an elec-
tion for the designation of a
bargaining agent for the Hebrew
teachers of Shaarey Zedek."
Harvey Weisberg, chairman
of the synagogue's education
committee, informed The Jewish
News on Wednesday that a meet-
ing of his committee was called
for Thursday (Sept. 22) night to
review the situation.
Meanwhile, a demand has been
issued by all of the Shaarey Zedek
teachers. in a signed statement ad-
dressed to Weisberg, for an im-
mediate "total recision of the act"
of dismissal. The statement, signed
by 21 teachers, denied the validity
of the charges against their col-
leagues — Sol Panush and Jacob
Gilany — and instead praised the
two men, who hold the offices of
president and vice president of the
teachers' association, as having
"demonstrated their integrity and
devotion to Jewish education."
The Panush and Gilany names do
not appear on the signed message
to Weisberg.
The Shaarey Zedek teachers who
signed their demand for the re-
instatement of the discharged men
are: Leah Kar, Samuel Reiman,
A. Grossbard, Moshe Grossbard,
Majer Swiatlo, Ruth Murciano,
Tsiporah Rees, Alisa Melner, Ger-
aldine Levit, Janet Pont, Rachel
Kaplan, "Adina Sod-Moriah, Drora
Kleinplatz, Israel Hochberg,
Manya Auster, Yoran Dahav, Eve-
lyn Klein, Dov Parshan, Nili
Katz, Albert J. Burke and Betty
Lehrman.
The Shaarey Zedek teachers
declare in their statement that
"the professional status and se-
curity of teachers and the ele-
mentary rights of a human being
to a fair hearing" was under-
mined by the action of dismissal
of two pioneer teachers.
At the same time, other teach-
ing staffs of local Jewish schools
filed protests against the dis-

missals of the two teachers on
Sept. 12. It was indicated that
the contracts of the two fired
teachers, with increases in salaries,
were renewed on Sept. 2.
In behalf of the Hebrew Teach-
ers Association of Metropolitan
Detroit, a protest against the dis-
missals was filed over the signa-
tures of all the members of the
association's executive committee
— Hugo Apt, Shoshana Bank, Jo-
seph Bares, Menachem Glaser,
Rae Goodman, Meyer Mathis, Rab-
bi Charles Rosenzweig and Marcia
Segall.
A protest was issued in behalf
of the Congregation Bnai David
Teachers Association over the
signatures of 13 members of that
congregation's teaching staff.
Urging "immediate reinstate-
ment of these two teachers," the
teachers of the Hillel Day School
similarly issued a protest. That
statement was signed by 26 of
the Hillel teachers. The names
of several ordained rabbis are
among the signatories to these
protests.
The teaching staffs' protests
emphasize that Hebrew teachers
have a right to organize and
charge that such organizational
efforts had led to the dismissal of
the two teachers.
Weisberg expressed the hope
that the issue would be resolved
at the meeting of his committee
called for last night.

Israel Seeks Ways
to Halt Demonstrators
On Sabbath Traffic

JERUSALEM (JTA) . — Moshe
Kol, minister for tourism, confer_
red with Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
Kollek and other top members of
the municipality's administration
on ways to halt the demonstra-
tions conducted here against traf-
fic on the Sabbath.
The demonstrators, all of them
ultra-religious Jews, were particu-
larly active here last weekend,
when traffic was very heavy, with
thousands of tourists flocking to
various hisIoric and national
shrines throughout this area. At
least two persons were hurt in
stone-throwing actions Saturday.
One of the injured was a British
woman who was hurt by flying
glass when a stone broke a window
of a bus in which she was a pas-
senger, near the Mandelbawn
Gate. A taxi driver was hit by a
stone while driving through a sec-
tion of the city inhabited largely
by religious zealots.
Kol appealed to the Sabbath
demonstrators to halt their actions
which, he said, hurt Israel's
image abroad. Kollek and other
members of his city administra-
tion said they would launch an
educational campaign directed to-
ward the Sabbath demonstrators.

No Saneness Because

We refuse to be drawn into the quagmire of chain-store coldness where
the value of human dignity is often questionable!

You won't find an atmosphere of sterility, slickness or sameness
of a chain store—but you will find real hospitality, ability and
characters. The roof leaks (very little overhead) the tires
are not stacked in nice neat piles, and the activities look
chaotic—the characters are smiling, enjoying their work, and
concerned with your personal safety. They include college
trained engineers and factory trained mechanics. People who
you can be proud to know and who say . .. "THE DAYS OF
PERSONAL SERVICE NEED NOT BE OVER WHERE YOUR
FAMILY SAFETY IS CONCERNED."

Your comments and patronage is invited and appreciated.
