Dear Mr. Horwitz:
Allow us to offer our heartfelt thanks for your very generous contribution to
Yeshivath Beth Yehudah, We would also like to thank you for your paper's accu-
rate and sensitive reporting of the malicious destruction in our school building in
The gracious monetary contribution and the offers of help from your staff people
are representative of the community response to our crisis.
Since the coverage of our problems by The Jewish News, many individuals from
the widest spectrum of Detroit Jewry have rallied to our support, our long time
friends as well as new friends.
There is so much talk of lack of unity and disharmony in the Jewish world today
that we wish to acknowledge publicty the _harmony and unity that we are witness-
ing. We have been contacted by members and representatives of Orthodox,
Conservative and Reform organizations as well as unaffiliated Jews wishing to
help us through our present difficulties.
It is always hard to find enough funds to maintain a school system with a growing
enrollment of close to 600 children. The recent violence has set us back and taken
a toll on our school's morale as well as put us in a precarious financial situation.
We thank The Jewish News and all those that have helped and will help us for the
much needed assistance. We hope that in the future all our families, organizations
and institutions will only share good experiences and good fortunes.
Rabbi Norman Kahn
Executive Vice President
Rabbi E. B. Freedman
We Deeply Appreciate The Continued
Outpouring of Support Received
From The Entire Jewish Community.
