Reader Offers Plan for OP,
Southfield Flight Prevention

Editor. The Jewish Ne-ws:
Your newspaper's past
several issues have touched
upon the Oak Park-South-
field "Jewish problem."
These articles interested
me and probably hundreds
of other readers. Thank you
for them. They serve to cry
out against the largely self-
induced social and financial
upheaval accompanying the
threatened relocation (dis-
location) of Jewish commu-
r---"- ies. Your concern in
it is welcome reading.
In the areas potentially af-
fected by the cyclic catast-
rophe there are Jewish in-
stitutions and organizations
with much at stake. Let
them not sit idly by nor
make furtive attempts at
flight. Let them rather con-
vince their young people to
buy homes close by.

Denied Request
Brings Criticism

Editor, The Jewish News:
I have been a Jewish
News subscriber for about
20 years, and was shocked
and dismayed at the letter
from Ruth Eichler (Bnai
Brith Girls) that every syna-
gogue and temple refused
to let them use their park-
ing lot(s) for a car wash. It
is a Hilul HaShem (that) a
Catholic church allowed
them to use their lot.
While we are facing a
tragedy with the alienation
of most of our Jewish youth
from Judaism, those few
who still care are turned
away after such a simple
request. All the synagogues
should apologize to her, and
offer their lots to her.
David Kahan

not be enough. How about
subsidizing home purchases
for young members? Inter-
est free loans or even out-
right grants will allow a
headstart in acquiring
home equity and save the
current outlandishly high
rental figures. If our syna-
gogues, temples, and cen-
ters do not have the willing
young people to respond to
such a senseful and econom-
ically sound appeal then
where is the future any-
way? Relocations, even if
affordable, would not help
With more demand for
housing within our own
group maybe there will be
less of a supply for others.

Housing Issue
Article Praised

Editor, The Jewish News:
As you may know, I have
kept up with what is going
on in the Detroit Jewish
community these many
years through your Jewish
News. I especially appre-
ciate reading and finding
out about the "dynamics"
of the total Jewish commu-
nity—as it relates to things
happening within the Jew-
ish community and in rela-
tion to the total community.
Therefore. I appreciate
your feature story about
Oak Park and Southfield in
your July 15, 1977 issue.
Without this kind of under-
standing and involvement
in the "total" community.
we'll end up in an isolated
corner—or packing up to
move to another commu-
