THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

VINCENZO'S

Danny Raskin's

LISTENING
POST

ABOUT 25 YEARS ago,
George Bass was a Dexter
bus passenger when
Mathew Wolfe, also a
passenger, asked him if he
was Jewish . . When
George said "ycs" he was
invited to the Downtown
Synagogue since they might
need a 10th man for a mi-
nyan . . . George went .. .
'nd has been an active
aember ever since.
The
Downtown
- synagogue was a dream of
Isaac Agree, who wanted a
place where Jews could
worship regardless of their
financial ability . . . or
whether they were Or-
thodox, Conservative or Re-
form . . . When Isaac passed
away, his son, Nathan, and
others continued his dream
. . . and in 1978, George
Agree, Isaac's grandson, be-
came president . . . George
is still on the executive
board . . . and Dr. Eugene
Sloan is president.
George Bass, now
president emeritus, was
president of the synagogue
from 1964 until 1978 . . . It
was during his term in office
that the piesent building at
1457 Griswold was pur-
chased . . . and it also was
his strong object in mind
that this was a place where
all Jews could go to daven
(pray) regardless of their
status in life and ability to
pay . . . It has a full-time
rabbi (Rabbi Noah M.
Gamze) and a cantor on
Saturdays and holidays .. .
There is always a full
quorum for prayers every
morning and evening.
The people who have
used the synagogue com-
prise a history of Jews in
Detroit for the last 50
years . . . men of wealth as
well as people on welfare
pray shoulder-to-
shoulder toget1-: in un-
ity.
Joe Freedmai „ a financial
adviser, acts as ritual direc-
tor . . . and on abbaths, Irv-
ing Palma]i and Nate
Goldstick sometimes con-
duct the services.
The
members
of
Downtown Synagogue have
been wanting to say
"Thanks" to George Bass for
the so many years he has
given to the shul . . . and his
75th birthday comes as a
nerfect occasion . . . Oct. 5, 6
the synagogue offi-
cers, board of directors and
George's relatives and his
many friends are giving
L a birthday party at
kdat Shalom Synagogue in
- Farmington Hills . . . a full
I
course dinner . . . preceded
by hors d'oeuvres . . . and
open bar . . . dancing to a
known orchestra . . . Max
Sosin, emcee . . . $25 per
person donation to
Downtown Synagogue
which pays for everything.
Folks interested can call
Judge Nathan Kaufman,
256-2757 . . . or the
synagogue, 961-9328 .. .

IMAGINE THE LOOK
on the faces of Karl Green-
berg and Lou Kuretsky
when they peeked back and
saw Art Leader coming out
of the water at Rochester
Golf and Country Club.
Happened recently dur-
ing the Bloch Bnai Brith
Sunday Golf League . . . on
the 15th hole when Art
backed his golf cart to allow
partner Marty Sorkowitz
more room to swing . . . He
backed over the bank of the
creek and fell in over his
head.
GEORGE WALDMAN,
counter man at Boesky's,
etc. was third place winner
in the Oak Park Energy
Conservation Advisory
Commission's poster con-
test . . . Also, after visiting
son Marshall, he sent a car-
toon to The Post in Van-
couver, Wash., showing two
Indians at the bottom of St.
Helens saying, "Let's
scram. Him say squaw Mi.
Helens ready to blow." It
was printed in July.
CONGRATS . . . to Jim
Dallavo . . . on 25 years with
Where Magazine.

. . . Sam Haddad . . . and
Lou Eisenberg . . . at Sentry
Drugs on W. 10 Mile and
Southfield.
FAVORITE PEOPLE
DEPT. . . . Esther Michael
. . . at The Sheik Restaurant
downtown.
ACCORDING TO ONE
auto wash, reasoning be-
hind leaving car running
while wiping it off after
going through the line is
that it takes more gas to
start the auto up again .. .
Could be this . . . or neglect.
Belief in one God and the
ethical conduct of life are
considered the essential
elements in Jewish religion.
