Council Gives
Testimony at
Housing Hearing-

ISAIAH MINKOFF

munity Relations Advisory
Council and "dean" of the
Jewish community relations
professionals. As a national
coordinating body, the NJC-
RAC membership combines
the major Jewish organiza-
tions with over 84 local Jew-
ish community groups includ-
ing the Detroit Council.
Minkoff has been the top
professional member of the
NJORAC since the agency
was established in 1944. He
had previously served as na-
tio•al director of the Jewish
Labor Committee. His arti-
cles on Jewish life and Jew-
ish community relations have
appeared in many journals.
Klein, a graduate of Ohio
State and Western Reserve
universities, joined the Com-
munity Council in 1945. He
has held leadership positions
in a variety of local and na-
tional civic groups and pro-

Mrs. Joyce Mittenthal rep-
resented the Jewish Commun-
ity Council at a public hear-
ing in Detroit before the
Michigan House of Represen-
tatives Committee on Urban
Affairs.,
Citing the long involvement
of the Jewish Community
Council in the battle for an
adequate supply of housing
and accessibility to it for all
families, Mrs. Mittenthal ex-
pressed Council's grave con-
cern about the effects of the
national housing moratorium
in the metropolitan area.
She recommended that the
state "step in-and assume re-
sponsibility for shelter for
low- and moderate-income
families through the provi-
sion of funding for rehabilita-
tion and construction of hous-
ing units, particularly where
there has been some previous
planning or development un-
der way."
The hearing was called by
the urban affairs committee,
chaired by Rep. Joseph
Forbes, to explore the impact
of the national housing mora-
torium and the termination of
funds for community develop-
ment programs.
