THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Local Beth Din
Stands Ready

Editor, The Jewish News:
The Purely Commentary
column of Mr. Philip
Slomovitz in your most re-
cent issue follows strongly
The Jewish News tradition
of being a source of valuable
efficacious information and
counsel to the Jewish com-
munity. We refer specifi-
cally to his lead article,
"What has happened to the
tradition of the Beth Din?,"
an urgent call for all Jewish
litigants and arbitrators to
make use of the judicious of-
fices of the Jewish court sys-
tem to solve their differ-
ences.
The Council of Orthodox
Rabbis beth din, in keeping
with the traditional respon-
sibilities of rabbis and scho-
lars to maintain a central
court system in every city
and town has serviced this
community for the last 55
years, handling matters of
all levels of concern and
urgency to the individuals
and institutions of Detroit
Jews. We remain eager in
our quest to use the wisdom
of Torah and Talmud as the
one system that has main-
tained the unity of the
Jewish community
throughout the millenia to
handle the problems of a
modern nation. Our door
always remains open.
We share the sentiments
of Mr. Slomovitz in decrying
the individual and com-
munal tragedy of the Akiva
strike. We have been ap-
proached at different times
by selected representatives
of both sides of this particu-
lar dispute for the use of our
offices.
If all parties will agree to
the abidance of our counsel
we would be more than anx-
ious to help ameliorate this
unfortunate situation as we
have done with so many
others.

Rabbi Chaskell Grubner
Council of Orthodox
Rabbis of Greater Detroit

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — In
the unlikely event that the
international banking
community refused further
credit to the ailing Israeli
economy, Israel could draw
on its 120 bank branches in
foreign countries for up to
$10 billion, theorizes the
Maariv newspaper.
Ahron Meir, managing
director of United Mizrachi
Bank, says Israel's
economic problems and the
drop in value of bank shares
has caused no substantial
withdrawals either in Israel
or abroad.
