DSG's Stag Day
To Mark 60th Year

To celebrate its 60th birth-
day, the Detroit Service
Group is planning its biggest
Stag Day ever.
Set for Sept. 10 at Franklin
Hills Country Club, Allied
Jewish Campaign workers
will have a chance to unwind
from the '86 Campaign with
a day of golf and tennis, be-
fore sitting down to an
awards dinner honoring the
leadership team of Stanley D.
Frankel and Paul D. Borman.
Previous Campaign chairmen
and Detroit Service Group
presidents will also be hon-
The Detroit Service Group
was founded in 1926 as a
permanent, year-round fund-
raising organization. Cash
collection had been a prob-
lem, and it was a struggle to
recruit new Campaign work-
ers each year.
Through the years, the
DSG has been responsible for
many innovations to the
To create a more effective
solicitation organization,
George Stutz, Stag Day foun-
der, proposed the establish-
ment of the Trade Council in
1936. Seven divisions were

formed, each with its own
board of directors.
In 1951, when Federation
moved to its current location
at 163 Madison, the DSG
moved into the "missions
business" as the first group
in the country to sponsor a
community-wide mission to
A year earlier, the DSG
held its first Stag Day. The
event became an institution
and a way of saying "thank
you" to the hundreds of
year-round workers who help
make Detroit's Campaign the
largest in per capita giving
among large cities.

Churches Welcome
Jews For Jesus Group

A "Jews for Jesus" group
called "The Liberated Wail-
ing Wall" is scheduled to
make appearances at four
area churches this week.
Jewish Community Council
Executive Director Alvin L.
Kushner wrote the churches'
spiritual leaders that "the
Jews for Jesus theology, an
admixture of rabbinic
Judaism with Christian
tenets, negates the unique-
ness, and denies the legiti-
macy of both faiths. Their
misrepresentations and out-
right untruths about both
Christian and Jewish belief
systems should be equally of-
fensive to both Christians
and Jews."
In response to Kushner's
advisory, the pastor of Cal-
vary Baptist Church in Can-
ton Twp., where a perform-
ance is to be held Saturday,
wrote, "While we desire to be

sensitive to your position, we
dare not compromise our
position of presenting Jesus
Christ as the Messiah, the
Savior of the world. If we fail
to present Him in this way to
all people, including the
Jewish community, then in-
deed we would be guilty of
The Calvary Church was a
replacement for the Far-
mington Hills Northwest
Christian and Missionary Al-
liance, which cancelled the
group's appearance. A
spokesman for the Northwest
Church would not reveal why
they had cancelled.
Other churches welcoming
the "Jews for Jesus" group
are the Clarenceville United
Methodist Church, in
Livonia, the Royal Oak Mis-
sionary Church and the
Covenant Community Church
in Redford.
