Hundret
Tzwantzig, Until a Hundred
and Twenty, Ad Meah v'Es-
rim Shana — they all spell
the same salutation to a
synagogue whose history is
linked with city, state and
nation, whose spiritual
growth had, continues to
have, indestructible links
with Kal Yisrael, the com-
munity of the entire people
of Israel.
Such is the story of Cong.
Shaarey Zedek as it marks
its 120th anniversary with
special services, recollec-
tions of its pioneer builders,
the fellow citizens who were
links in neighborliness.
Rabbis who inspired the
spiritual values of the
synagogue, presidents who
had notable roles in the
congregational functions,
women and the youth, the
Hazzanim and staffs — all
are recorded, their services
fully accredited in a very
impressive volume, "Con-
gregation Shaarey Zedek —
5622-5742 — 1861-1981,7
which came off the Wayne
State University Press this
week.

• Celebr
Pictorially, content-
wise, it is a truly impres-
sive work. It is the result
of serious efforts to as-
sure a thorough and fac-
tual documentation of
the second oldest
synagogue here and one
of the oldest in the coun-
try.
It receives emphasis in
the definition of the 120
theme by Rabbi Irwin
Groner, the congregation's
rabbi, who prefaces the vol-
ume with:
"The years granted to
Moses were 120; at his de-
ath, the Bible tells us that
`His eyes were undimmed
and his vigor unabated."
Hence, the customary felici-
tation in our tradition on a
birthday or anniversary: ad
meah v'esrim, which means
`until 120,' the years of vigor
granted to Moses.
"But what can be said
when one has fortunately
reached the 120th anniver-
sary? For this, too, Jewish
tradition has an appropri-
ate blessing: ken yirbu —
`May the years, and the
blessings, and the joys mul-
tiply.' "
This historical record
— all of the 1,800 mem-
bers will be provided
with copies and the Con-
servative Movement's
leaders have already
indicated a desire to have
it shared with the leaders
of the national member-
ship — is the product of
several people. It began
with the facts gathered
by Eli Grad when he was
the executive director of

self a well-informed De-
troiter who has risen in
her editorial work wit-
the local community, she'
has given skill and devo-
tion in editing this vol-
ume. Having specialized '-
also in art history, for
which she earned her
Master's degree, her
work together with Kin-
ney and Primeau added'
to the WSU Press another-
of its great artistic works.

In the past two years, dur-
ing which, under the lead-
ership of Dr. Bernard
Goldman a vast library of
Judaica has been publishPri
WSU Press gave special
tention to Jewish train'
tional art works. The
Shaarey Zedek history
gains a place among them.

the congregation at the
time of its 100th anniver-
sary. The major work in
compiling the text, in the
collection and writing
about the experiences of
the last 20 years, was
done by Bette Roth.
The laborious Bette Roth
task already won acclaim
from those who read galley
proofs. It shows ability to do
research; it had the re-
markable result of securing
numerous photographs,
many very old, which would
have been lost had it not
been for their retention' for
incorporation in the
Shaarey Zedek history.
In design, this WSU Press
volume merits a national
award. Both in the manner
in which photos were
grouped, their classifica-
tion, the clarity of the entire
project, lend glory to an im-
portant effort.
Richard Kinney, who
with Mary Primeau de-
signed the volume, earns
recognition for a profes-
sional attainment of great
merit.
Carol Altman Brom-
berg has a major role in
the production of this
meritorious work. Her-

Carol Bromberg,
SZ Book's Editor

• Born and raised in De-
troit, Carol Altman Brom-
berg remembers childhood
visits to radio station WJLB
and her grandparents' Yid-
dish radio program, the
Altman Jewish Hour, about
which Philip Slomovitz tells
this story:
"In 1936, Hyman Altman
had a profitable spot buyer,
the Republican party in be-
half of Alf Landon. He de-
livered the prepared speech
with gusto and his usual
enthusiasm. Then he pro-
claimed, 'Dos iz geven a bat-
zolter annonsment, ich voot
far Ruzevelt' — 'This was a
paid announcement. I vote
for Roosevelt.' "
Mrs. Bromberg is a
graduate of the University
of Michigan and later
earned a master's degree at
Wayne State University in
art history. She has contin-
ued her studies in ancient
art, teaching at Wayne,
speaking to groups at the
Detroit Institute of Arts,
writing and delivering pap-
ers at national conferences
on archeology and art his-
tory.
As an editor for the
Wayne State University
Press, her recent credits in-
clUde a volume based on
Slomovitz's weekly columns
in The Jewish News, sev-
eral histories of Romanian
art, and the history of Cong.
Shaarey Zedek.
