down your last wish from generation to

serving the scholastic ap-
proach to adult education.
Unlike other adult courses
in the area, those offered
by the Midrasha focus so-
lely on Jewish life. These in-
clude Jewish philosophy, lit-
erature, history, current
problems of Israel's rela-
tions to world Jewry and
the study of the Bible and
the Talmud.
The Southfield-based Midr-
asha shares its 12 Mile-Lah-
ser facilities with the
United Hebrew Schools,
which created the program.
In addition to his Midrasha
post, Dr. Stern is superin-
tendent of the UHS, of
which Milton Lucow is pres-
ident.
Together with UHS, the
Midrasha is a charter mem-
ber agency of the Jewish
Welfare Federation and is a
beneficiary of the Allied
Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund.
Norman D. Katz is chair-
man of the Midrasha board
of directors.
The Midrasha, Dr. Stern
explains, is the only Jewish
private college in Michigan.
The Midrasha was found-
ed in 1948 to train Hebrew
teachers. However, because
of declining enrollment, the
college altered its course
and is concentrating more
attention than in the past
on general adult education.
It continues to provide a
liberal Jewish education
leading to an associate of
Hebrew letters degree,
bachelor of Hebrew letters
or a moreh Ivri (teaching
certificate).
Stern emphasizes that the
aim is not to popularize
courses just to attract num-
bers. "We have opened our
enrollment to the general
public but have maintained
the highest scholastic stand-
ards."
Yosef Levanon, dean and
assistant professor, says
that anyone, Jew and non-
Jew, may attend Midrasha
classes. Three-fourths of
the students. including doc-
tors, businessmen, lawyers
and housewives, take non-
credit courses.
At present, 130 students
attend classes at the main
campus in Southfield. Ex-
tending its services to the
wider community. the Midr-
asha also provides .instruc-
tors for the University of
Detroit, Oakland University
and Marygrove College.
The Midrasha library is
open to the public and has
one of the largest collec-
tions of Jewish works in the
Midwest.
For information, call the
Midrasha, 353-7117.
