Memorial for the Six Million
Patterned After Yad Vashem
to Have Dedication June 19

Groundbreaking ceremonies for Greater Detroit's Memorial Center
in memory of the Six Million Jews who perished in the Holocaust will
be held at noon June 19 at the Memorial Center site, on the northwest
corner of 13 Mile and Farmington roads in Farmington Hills.

The Memorial Center is the first of its kind in the U.S. patterned
after Yad Vashem in Israel, and will house a museum containing
Holocaust material; a library with archives, books, films, taped oral
histories and records ; study and listening_rooms; and a chapel for use
by the community and individuals.

Eli Zborowski, founder and past president of the American Feder-
ation of Jewish Fighters, Camp Inmates and Nazi Victims, will be the
guest speaker at the groundbreaking
ceremonies. A native of Poland, he was
a member of the Jewish underground
ZOB and was active in organizing youth
and leading Polish Jews to European
areas under American control. He is
now a member of the board of the
American Zionist Youth Foundation
and a member of the Memorial Founda-
tion of Jewish Culture.
Spokesmen said the Memorial Center
is expected to "stimulate a con-
sciousness within the Jewish and non-
Jewish community" of the magnitude
and nature of the Holocaust. The center
will collect and disseminate materials
to kcal organizations and schools and
serve as a resource center for local
scholars and universities.
A spokesman said the center is expected to stimulate new courses at
area schools and visits by organized groups and religious leaders.

It will also serve "as an instrument to deepen a sense of Jewish iden-
tity in the Jewish community." Memorial services on Yom Hashoa
(Holocaust Remembrance Day) will to patterned after the services
held annually at Yad Vashem.
The groundbreaking ceremonies June 19 are open to the public.

WASHINGTON (JTA)—Some Jewish leaders and intellectuals here are indicating appre-
hension that critical expressions within the Jewish community towards the Carter Adminis-
tration's moves in the Arab-Israeli conflict may create serious problems for Israel itself and
the Jewish world. Their apprehension, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency is informed, is not
primarily based on the continued vigorous support for Israel's security goals but on the
manner in which some pro-Israelis are publicly pursuing their purposes in the absence of
solid facts of the Administration's full intentions.
Pending a clearer outline of the Administration's strategy it is being said, inadequately
based attacks can only depress the special U.S.-Israeli relationship, create a platform for
blaming Israel and American Jews for failure of the U.S. initiative, and result in a backlash with
serious consequences for the Jewish communities.
Observers here have pointed out that while President Carter has set Presidential
precedents in advocating a Palestinian homeland and compensation for Palestinians, the
complete pattern of his thinking of a "fair and just settlement" has not yet crystallized.
Outcries now, it is said, would be premature and may stifle his strategy for a settlement.
Against this is the belief that unless communal dissatisfaction with the Administration's
observed trend is explicitly made known to the White House, governmental elements will
systematically continue to extend intoAmerican policy the terms the Arab governments are
demanding that effectively would ghettoize Israel within the Arab orbit.
The time to block this pattern, it is thought, is before "suggested" U.S. proposals that
could be trumpeted everywhere as "fair and reasonable" cause Israel to accept them to its
detriment because "world opinion demands it". Therefore the facts of Israel's position must
be declared with all means available.-

Sunday Morning Rally
to Mark Solidarity Day

A major rally in support of Soviet Jewry, in conjunction
with World Day of Solidarity, will be held 10:45 a.m. Sun-
day at the Troy Hilton Inn as part of the state convention
of the Department of Michigan, Jewish War Veterans.
The rally is being co-sponsored by the Jewish Commu-
nity Council of Metropolitan Detroit, the Detroit Corn-
mittee for Soviet Jewry, the Jewish Labor Committee and
the American Jewish Congress as part of world-wide
events to focus attention on the plight of Soviet Jews and

Expanded Program for Non-Resident Elderly Instituted -
Under Supervision of Home for Aged's Borman Hall

The Jewish Home for Aged will be expanding its day program services at Borman Hall. The day program is
designed for Jewish elderly living in the community who could benefit from structured activity and specialized services.

The Jewish Home for the Aged's day program will provide: continental breakfast, full course lunch and dinner,
,,apervised craft and work activity centers, daily synagogue services, and the free use of library and lounges. The
program is under the supervision of Phyllis Braudy Harris, a professional social worker who has supervised the
existing day program for the past two years.

The expanded day program will be offering personalized door-to-door shuttle service for the participants.
This shuttle bus service has been made possible through the generosity of Saul and Dan LeVine, who contributed
through the David and Freda LeVine Foundation, two new specially modified vans designed for the transportation of
the elderly. Special features in the van will assure passenger comfort and safety.

Those who take advantage of this shuttle service will be busy from as early as 8:30 a.m. to as late as 6:30 p.m.
Participants who provide their own transportation may have a more, flexible schedule once arrangements are made.

Program choices include a five-day per week program, a three-day program, and a two-day program, depending
on the needs and capabilities of the applicants.

Applications for this expanded Day Program are currently being processed by Ms. Harris at the Jewish Home for
Aged, 532-7112. An application brochure will be mailed to all those interested, after which a personal interview to
establish eligibility in the program will be necessary.

The piogram is scheduled to begin in mid-June. There is a charge and space is limited.
