Telephone Listings Criticized

Editor, The Jewish News:
In the 1976-77 Yellow
Pages telephone direc-
tory, under "Synagogu-
es," the very first listing
is Cong. Isek (sic) Ab-
raham of Detroit, a group
with which I have a
rather strong familiarity.
This is a group of black
gentiles, under the lead-
ership of Mr. Prince
Raymond Crawford, a
well-meaning and sincere
individual who has been
preaching a kind of fun-
damentalist Old Testa-
ment religion to some 20
men, women, and chil-
dren, for a number of
years. There. is nothing
Jewish about this group,
and their place of worship
is certainly no syna-
gogue.
Under "Orthodox" in
the listing for "Syna-
gogues," the first entry
reads as follows: "Church
of God Temple Beth El"
with the address 18515
Wyoming, corner of Mar-
gareta. The name of the
leader of this congrega-
tion is "Elder Phillip H.
Merritt."
The Church of God Tem-
ple Beth El is another one
of these black fundamen-
talist groups, having no tie
at all with the Jewish
community.
These listings are
fraudulent and mislead-
ing and could bring undue

Perhaps the telephone
company should check
with the Jewish Commu-
nity Council before they
list some organization as
a "Synagogue." If a group
insists that it is a syna-
gogue when, in reality, it
is not, perhaps it should
be listed under
"Churches — Non-
denominational."

Academic Needs

It also would be an act
of great beneficence :to es-
tablish "academic chairs
and scholarships" in
Judaism (Hebrew, Yid-
dish, Jewish history,
Jewish philosophy, etc.)
at WSU, UM and MSU,
which are attended by
hundreds of Jewish
young men and women.

Academic chairs should
be established by en-
dowments on a perma-
nent basis.

Education, in the opin-
-ion of this writer, is the
most effective deterrent
against assimilation and
a potent means of de-
veloping Jewishly, uni
versity educated people.',,
