THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

LETTERS

I recently led a delegation of
ithletes from St. Louis to partici-
late in the United States Youth
(Iaccabi games hosted in Detroit.
lie Jewish Community Center
170:1 the Jewish community in De-
`roit gave a maximum effort in
d iving our athletes and coaches a
rery memorable and positive ex-
e-J:'ience. The organization of the
ames was first class and the host
'amilies were magnificent in in-
1.iring that every teenager to
Ldult had a wonderful time.
Our children are still buzzing
ver new friendships, human
Vaves in Tiger Stadium, boat
guises, Shabbat dinners, pool
arties, visits to the State Fair,
:ating out, and, of course, the
ompetition. Also, the other dele-
ation heads, coaches and myself
,.,-ere treated to some fine Detroit
ewish hospitality.
On behalf of all the participants
It the games, I want to let your
ommunity know that it was
;neatly appreciated.
Thank you.

On behalf of our six-person
lelegation from the small "shtetl"
f Flint, I wish to thank each of
u who unselfishly made the
outh Maccabiah week a lifetime
.emembrance.
kor our youth, who have never
een so many Jewish girls and
oys in their lives, it was full of
xperiences that they are con-
tantly relating to our entire
ewish community. The
irlfriends from Chicago, uni-
orms from Israel and pins from
ustralia will be cherished al-
ays.
My personal gratitude to Marty
liff, Jay Robinson and to my
end, Max Sheldon, who saw his
ream become a reality. Once
gain our deepest appreciation.

Justice, justice

Shofetim,
Parashat
Deuteronomy 16:18-21:19, dis-
issed in your Aug. 31 Insight
column, should probably be called
`Justice," for its most famous
commandment and indeed the
very foundation of Jewish life is
tipulated in the first three words
of Deuteronomy 16:20:
"Zedek zedek tierdof' — "Jus-
ce, justice shall you follow." The
actual meaning is "Justice, justice

shall you pursue," for it is not
enough to follow the rules but to
actively pursue justice. One must
not sit back while another man
cheats or steals from him even if
the thief is his brother. The victim
must reproach the thief and pur-
sue justice.
A father must not only teach his
son justice but instill in him the
notion of the pursuit of justice in
action and the real meaning of the
words truth (emet), trust
(emunah) and integrity (yosher).

The HMC and
the Maccabiah

Your article "A Living Memo-
rial" (Sept. 7) reminded me of my
experience touring the Detroit
Holocaust Memorial Center with
some Maccabiah athletes, their
parents and coaches from Israel
and Mexico. The Holocaust Cen-
ter allowed small groups to tour
even though the building was not
completed. Rabbi Rosenzveig and
his staff workedvery hard to ac-
commodate us.
The experiene for our Mac-
cabiah visitors and myself was
very moving; it is one that we will
never forget. I am fortunate that I
can return to visit; most of our
visitors can only remember the
experience and return in their
minds.

PACKAGED SUKKAH

AVAILABLE AT DISCOUNT PRICES

I was born in Detroit, and until
last year was a resident of South-
field.
I was a six or seven-year-old
student at Temple Beth El when
Rabbi Leon Fram arrived in De-
troit. When I returned from World
War II, my wife and I became con-
gregants at Temple Israel to be
with Rabbi Fram.
I am writing this letter to thank
a great journalist, Philip
Slomovitz, for remembering
Rabbi Fram in Purely Commen-
tary (Aug. 17) on "ZOA Honors for
Max M. Fisher." Rabbi Fram de-
served his place with the other
notables mentioned in Purely
Commentary.

This traditional SUKKAH is completely pre-
fabricated and pre-packaged for shipment and stor-
age with BAMBOO
OUR SUKKAH WALLS are made of durable two-
tone duck, 11 1/4 oz. per square yard, water repellant
and mildew resistant.
OUR SUKKAH POLES are made of an alloy of alumi-
num and magnesium, sturdy and lightweight.
OUR PATENT FITTINGS are made of sluminum for
quick and easy assembly (and disassembly for stor-
age) without any tools whatsoever, except one small
wrench, which we furnish.
OUR TRADITIONAL SUKKAH measures 6 ft. in
width, by 7 1/4 ft. in length, by 7 1/4 ft. in height, for
comfortable seating of 10 persons.
PACKAGED in a strong corrugated carton for ship-
ment and storage.
ASSEMBLING: With each purchase we furnish you
with a very ,detailed assembly instruction sheet,
which makes it very simple to put th Sukkah together
in about 30 minutes.

Donations asked
for Falasha olim

The recent arrival of several
hundred Ethiopian olim families
in Israel's Upper Galilee region
has prompted the formation of the
Task Force for Ethiopian Jewry in
Safed.
Teachers, social workers, stu-
dents, and other professionals
who live here donate their time
and effort to this task force. The
Ethiopian community has arrived
in Israel with no material re-
sources of its own. Housing, food,
medical services and basic clo-
thing are provided by Israel. But,
following items are needed for the
immediate use of the Ethiopian
community:
