Cheder Has Changed

Continued from Page 16

State University, which has
led to a minor identity crisis:
Those who know him call him
Jerry; formally he is Dr. Tel-
ler; and "only my mother still
refers to me as Rabbi Teller.
She really likes it."

Jerry and Judy — she is
Jewish Students Organization
director at Oakland Univer-
sity — have raised three chil-
dren in Detroit. Shira attends
Stern College in New York,
son Ronnie is in Chicago pre-
paring to make aliyah next
year, and Lisa is a student at
Akiva.

Dr. Teller says, "Our kids
grew up at United Synagogue
Youth conventions and at
camps. We have dragged them
all over the country and to Is-
rael." A number of Teller fam-
ily summers have been spent
at the Fresh Air Society's
Camp Maas in Ortonville,
where Dr. Teller directs the
month-long Kfar Ivri (Hebrew
Village) program. Forty cam-
pers — many of them UHS
students — spend four weeks
enjoying a regular camp ex-
perience with the addition of
two daily 20-minute periods of
Hebrew and Jewish instruc-
tion and discussions. UHS
staffers supplement the young
counseling staff, and the UHS
Woman's Auxiliary gives
stipends to UHS students
attending the program.

"The major point," Dr. Tel-
ler believes, "is that United
Hebrew Schools is now more
than just a school system .. .
We have to institutionalize
the personal relationships
with a sense of willingness to
move out . . ."
Those changes are also re-
flected in a $100,000 face-lift
at the UHS main building on
12 Mile Road. Workmen are
rushing to complete renova-
tions in the lobby, auditorium
and board room before Thurs-
day night's 65th anniversary
celebration.

The face-lift recognizes the
growing communal use of the
building. In addition to UHS,
Midrasha and the UHS nur-
sery, the building houses
offices for the Hebrew Free
Loan, Detroit Zionist Federa-
tion, Jewish" Community
Council, Allan/Touro College
and the Allan College of
Gerontology. Federation uses
the building for many meet-
ings and places 80 telephones
in the auditorium for Allied
Jewish Campaign telethons.

Last week, Dr. Teller
watched as workmen closed
the main building entrance
and sawed plywood sheets in
preparation for the lobby
transformation. "United He-
brew Schools is in the midst of
a change," he reflected, "and
we are still emerging."
