Rabbi Lane Steinger of Temple
Emanu-El agrees the construc-
tion phase with all the machin-
ery, all the noise and activity,
adds to a sense of turmoil in the
neighborhood. "Once everything
is completed, things will again be
peaceful and quiet and that'll set-
tle things down. My inclination is
to believe that once the freeway
is finished it will have a tremen-
dous stabilizing effect on the
area."
Synagogues and temples along
the route view the impact differ-
ently. Temple Emanu-El sees it
as a temporary annoyance but
Rabbi Steinger hopes it will im-
prove the situation by making
the temple more accessible to a
larger area. "Although the pre-
ponderance of our membership is
nearby in Oak Park, Huntington
Woods and Southfield, we are
truly a metropolitan congrega-
tion. We serve a wide area, all the
way from the east side in the
Grosse Pointes to the west in
West Bloomfield, as well• as
families in the city."
However, Young Israel of
Oak-Woods has lost a considera-
ble portion of its membership
over the last several years and
blames some of this on the high-
way. The rest have left through
the natural order of things —
older members moving to Florida
or to smaller homes or apart-
ments.
There are many who say the
highway means the eventual
downfall of the Jewish commu-
nity in the Nine Mile - Eleven -
Southfield Road - Coolidge area.

They predict the Jewish commu-
nity will simply pack up and
move out to West Bloomfield
within the next ten years. A
familiar chant is . . . "Detroit's
Jewish community historically
moves every 15 or 20 years."
There are synagogues whose
members are pushing them to re-
locate.
Not everyone is prepared to ac-
cept this pattern as inevitable
and have decided it's time the
community took steps to stop the
migration to the more northern
suburbs. Alice Mandelbaum, a
longtime resident of Oak Park,
says, "We are living in times of
changing communities. Where
are you going to run to? There
has to come a time when you stop
running. You can't stop progress.
Sure, we'd rather they'd built
1-696 somewhere else, not
through our neighborhood. But
they didn't."
Her husband, Myer, adds, "Our
roots are in this area. Our friends
are here though some have gone.
There's a certain charisma about
Oak Park. First of all, it's a small
community. And then the serv-
ices of the city, the police, the fire
department. The spirit of the
community is alive. On our block
everyone's concerned for each
other.
"We intend to stay here as long
as possible. As far as the city is
concerned, I wouldn't choose to
live anywhere else. We have the
services we need, the stores. Our
family is close by. The plusses
and the minuses . . . for the time
being we intend to stay."
