Zuckerman, Dr. Fill Attend
1st UJA National Fund Raising

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Brevities

The involvement of Detroit leadership in the coming
United Jewish Appeal was appareht at the initial national
fund-raising for the 1975 UJA. Shown are, from left, UJA's
general chairman Paul Zuckerman, Ambassador Simha
Dinitz, Albert B. Adelman of Milwaukee, and Dr. Leon Fill
who discussed campaign priorities in a pre-dinner conversa-
tion at the Israeli embassy in Washington. Also present in
the gathering of 35 national leaders was Richard Sloan,
whose appointment as a 1975 Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund general chairman was announced at the
recent Detroit Service Group annual Stag Day dinner.

Judge Rules on 'Technicality'
at Machpelah Cemetery Hearing

Oakland County Circuit
Court Judge James Thor-
burn ruled on a "small tech-
nicality" Friday at the hear-
ing of the suit contesting
control of Machpelah Ceme-
tery.
According to Abe Silver-
stein, president of Cong.
Beth Jacob-Mogain Abra-
ham, a plaintiff congregation
along with Cong. Bnai Israel-
Beth Yehuda, Judge Thor-
burn ruled that depositions
presented in the 1960 lawsuit
which sought to perpetuate
the testimony of the two con-
gregations, are not of import
to the present case.
Silverstein said that in the
1960 hearing, the congrega-
tions presented depositions
of persons- who were alive
when the cemetery was
founded, but were no longer
living when the case was
presented.
Silverstein also said that
Judge Thorburn gave the
plaintiffs until Oct. 15 to re-
write a brief proving why
the reincorporation of the
Oppenheim family in 1940
was illegal. In 1940, the Op-
penheim family, the defen-
dants in the case, rein corpor-
ated under another sta tute,
thereby perpetuating them-
selves as trustees of the
cemetery.
The congregations were
told by the attorney for the
defendants that the statute
of limitations had run out —
the time allowed for t he con-
/ gregations to contest the re-
incorporation — and that
they could no longer take
any action. In response, the
congregations did contest the
reincorporation calling it il-

legal because they received
no notice of the action.
Silverman said, therefore,
because there was no notice
given the statute could not
have run out.
