mit

Though small in number just a dot
Followers of Abraham the Patriarch
Constantly in the midst of great world events
Over four thousand years of our existence
Driven froi-n the promised land
With the laws of Moses spread over continents
When fear and darkness surround us
Then faith in the guidance of providence strengthens us
Like pillars of light overpowering the shadows of darkness
So is our faith in the future fulfillment
This is the legacy of creation bestowed upon us
To play in the drama of mankind
Glorification in all God's creation
Our way of life a civilization.

The Detroit-area office of the
American Jewish Congress,
which had gone unstaffed since
February, was officially closed
this week by the organization's
parent office in New York.
The closing was the result of
budgetary problems at the na-
tional level, according to Ruth
Rosenbaum, former regional di-
rector of the AJCongress in De-
troit. "The money situation
forced them to re-evaluate their
situation and retrench at a
number of local offices," Rosen-
baum said.
The Detroit bureau was the
only office to be completely shut
down by the Jewish organiza-
tion, however. The Detroit AJ-
Congress office was located at
21550 W. 12 Mile in Southfield.
There are some 400-500 AJ-
Congress members in the De-
troit area, according to Rosen-
baum. The organization, which
works to foster the creative,
religious and cultural survival
of the Jewish people and to
eliminate racial and religious
bigotry through various local
programs, has notified Detroit-
area members that they can ob-
tain AJCongress services and
materials from the Chicago
office.
"The Jewish Community
Council will also help to pick up
the slack now that our office is
closed," Rosenbaum told The

Jewish News.

Others in the organization
voiced disappointment over the
closing of the Detroit-area office.
"I didn't think it was a good
idea," former AJCongress secre-
tary Ann Goldberg said. "If I
was a member of an organiza-
tion, I would want to do things
within my own region, I would
have to be able to participate in
its activities.
"I think this way, a lot of De-
troit members will leave the
AJCongress for other groups."
