rabbi emeritus of Temple
Beth El; and representatives
of the Catholic Archdiocese
and the Protestant commu-
nity. Speakers at the service
called on the U.S. govern-
ment to take stronger action
to end terrorism.

Detroit who were born in
Turkey. Besides Dr. Bahar,
she said, the other is Albert
Molina, a computer specialist
at General Motors. She de-
scribed Detroit's Sephardic
community as having 70-75
families, mostly from Iran,
Iraq, Morocco, Israel, Greece
(Holocaust survivors from
Salonica), South America,
and one from Cuba.
On Wednesday night, the
Jewish Community Council
of Metropolitan Detroit con-
ducted a memorial service at
Cong. Shaarey Zedek in
memory of the Istanbul vic-
tims. Judge Avern Cohn
chaired the meeting, and the
program included Cantor
Chaim Najman of Shaarey
Zedek; Richard C. Hertz,

The annual stag day Wed-
nesday of the Detroit Service
Group for Allied Jewish
Campaign volunteers was cut
short so that members could
attend the memorial. The
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council,in
New York requested that its
affiliates throughout the U.S.
hold memorials on Wednes-
day, the day of the funeral in
Istanbul for the Neve Shalom
victims.

part of an "interim period,"
he explained.
"I've got 900 patients," he
went on to say, arguing that
he couldn't afford to offer
outpatient religious services
to every religious group.
He rejected the argument
that the facility was dis-
criminating against its
Jewish patients by offering
services that are not Sabbath
services. "The service we are
offering is basically the same
service we offer to other per-
sons. I don't think we're
doing less ..."
"If you provide Sabbath
services for Protestants and
Catholics, you can do it for
the Jews," insisted Rabbi
Gordon.
He saw the visits to his
synagogue as the best solu-
tion to the problem. "You'd
have to hire a full-time rabbi
to get him to serve Friday
nights."
"I have been going around
and around with this issue,"
said Dr. Brown. "At one time
we had a volunteer rabbi
come in. We are providing
the same level of service to
Jewish patients." Compared
with the number of non-Jews,
he said, NRPH was spending
proportionally more on its
Jews.
"I don't think there's any
question that we don't have
the money to transport staff
to places of worship," said
Tom DeLoach, director of
public information for Michi-
gan's Department of Mental
Health. "I think that's the
place where volunteers come
in."
A meeting to discuss the
matter was called Sept. 4 by
Rabbi Gordon; Bernie El-
binger, a Jewish volunteer at
Northville; and Richard Vis-
engardi, a representative of
the Michigan Protection and
Advocacy Service, a watchdog
group over the state's
psychiatric facilities. Dr.
Brown was on vacation and
did not attend the meeting,
but told The Jewish News

.

that he would sit down with
the three to iron out out-
standing issues at a mutually
agreed upon time.
One such issue is the in-
stitution's chief chaplain,
Father Stanley Kukulski. A
Roman Catholic priest,
Father Kukulski is accused
by Rabbi Gordon and El-
binger of interfering in the
Jews' spiritual concerns and
of interpreting Judaism to
NRPH's staff and Jewish
patients.
Father Kukulski does it in
the name of "ecumenism,"
Rabbi Gordon said.
"Ecumenism is a nice Chris-
tian word. People think it
means brotherhood. But it's a
movement toward a world
Catholic church, not brother-
hood."
According to Rabbi Gordin,
Father Kukulski wrote a
pamphlet, interpreting the
holiday of Pesach, which he
distributed to NRPH's clergy
and staff. The letter read:
"Passover is celebrated by
Christians as well as Jews,
but it is called by its most
popular name: Easter."
Dr. Brown insists that in-
cidents like the Pesach pam-
phlet are all in the past.
"Father Kukulski has noth-
ing to do with the Jewish
patients," he said. "I ex-
plained to Rabbi Gordon that
written communications
would come from the rabbi. If
it's an issue, we've taken care
of it. We won't have Father
Kukulski" sending written
communications or explain-
ing Judaism to Jewish
patients, the director as-
serted.
"I know there are concerns
about (Father Kukulski's)
philosophy and how he oper-
ates," said John Powell,
Michigan Protection and Ad-
vocacy's director of mental
health advocacy services.
"There is not the kind of sen-
sitivity being exercised as it
should be toward the Jewish
patients and their needs in
that setting.
