with a Torah procession

The weekend activities
marked the opening of a year-
long series of events being
planned by B'nai Moshe, cul-
minating next spring with a syn-
agogue banquet. Many of the
synagogue's cultural and social
functions this year are being tied
to the anniversary. Planned are
an auction in January, the Inter-
congregational Men's Club
dinner in February, the annual
cantorial concert next spring, a
June 7 re-dedication ceremony
and the culminating dinner-
dance June 14.
B'nai Moshe was founded in
1918, with the Gunsberg family
serving as the catalyst. The con-
gregation was named after their
father, Moshe (Morris) Gunsberg,
and several third, fourth and
fifth-generation Gunsbergs re-
main active in the synagogue.
Known as the Hungarian shul"
for many years, the congregation
moved several times in Detroit,
and left its Dexter address in 1960
when the Oak Park sanctuary
was opened. ❑
