In your Sept. 12 issue you
had a nice article of
memories people had of Hank
Greenberg. I would like to
add a couple stories that we
Flint "boys" experienced with
our hero of the time.
At Beth Israel Synagogue
in Flint, we had a club of 12
and 13 year old boys, appro-
priately called the Bar
Mitzvah Club ... We has
saved enough moeny to get
tickets to a Detroit Tiger
game, which we all enjoyed,
especially because our hero,
Hank Greenberg played.
After the game, our sponsor,
Sherman Bernstein, took us
to Hunds Restaurant in
downtown Detroit for an after
game food treat. We all sat at
a long table that had been
prepared for us.
Ten minutes after we were
seated, in walked Hank
Greenberg and seat down at
the head of the table. The
thrill to us boys of having our
hero at our table was like
having G-d sitting in that
sat. I remember that Hank
was so "down to earth" and
was willing to answer the
many questions we threw at
him — he was one of us. He
picked up the check for all of
us. With the money we had
saved for the meal, we pur-
chased baseball shirts, had
them lettered "The Bar
Mitzvah Club," and played
any available team in Flint.
The Detroit Tigers had a
farm team in Flint, and once
a year they came to play an
exhibition game. That year,
when they came for their an-
nual game, Hank Greenberg
came for a promised visit to
our shul. Of course, the
entire Bar Mitzvah Club was
there to see him. Again, he
was "one of the boys," kib-
bitzing and giving batting
tips. There were some Chris-
tian kids watching— I think
they would have converted at
that moment, had Hank re-
quested them to do so ...

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Hebrew Book & Gift Center

11 Mile & Lahser, Southfield

Harvard Row Mall

356-6080

Open AU Day Sunday

As president of the Sephar-
dic Community of Greater
Detroit, I feel obliged to con-
vey to you the thoughts of
our membership on the very
fresh thrust of violence which
has been perpetrated against
our brothers in the
synagogue in Istanbul, Tur-
key.
Please know that my
people are bitterly outraged!
We the Sephardic community
here . are in . a state of
shock. We empathize strongly
with our eastern brethern,
and are, therefore suffering
along with them, both mor-
ally and emotionally.
We here feel blessed for
having enjoyed a happy free-
dom of worship ... and wish
to express our thanks to God

by stretching out a helping
hand to the families of the 21
congregants whose lives were
snuffed out as they were
praying in the synagogue on
the Sabbath ... In this vein,
our board of directors has
unanimously agreed to do-
nate $1,000 toward the re-
construction of the sanctuary
of worship. I feel certain that
many of our own congregants
will help to raise additional
funds from the general
community-at-large to
further their efforts .. .
David Chicorel

President, Sephardic Community

Many Thanks
To Sinai Staff

This past year could have
been a horrible nightmare,
had it not been for a select
group of people, whose lives,
as I see it, are dedicated to
those of us who are fighting
our way back from chronic
illnesses.
The trauma of a 13-week
siege at Sinai Hospital was
lessened significantly by the
dedication of the staff in
CICU and the pulmonary
care unit. Without their in-
spiration and constant
encouragement, I would not
have been able to express my
feelings today.
My doctors have been the
mainstay of my existence,
and there are not enough
ways to say thank you for all
the wonderful things they
have done for, and to, me.
I am so deeply grateful to
all of the people who helped
me to regain my strength and
to surmount many adver-
sities, and my one wish is
that God bless them all, and I
pray that they will have long,
happy and healthy lives.

Harvard 'Defiled'
By Hosting Saudi

With much fanfare, Har-
vard University celebrated its
350th anniversary, but it was
defiled by the staging of a
"seminar" on the world oil
market, presided over by
Sheikh Yamani. In 1936,
when Harvard was 300, it
knew better than to have Al
Capone lecture on the na-
tional liquor market.
I am reminded that in
1934, when all Harvard
decision-makers were WASP,
they adamantly refused an
offer of money from Hitler
(the offer came from "Putzi"
Hanfstaengl, one of Hitler's
friends from the 1923 putsch,
who had studied at Harvard
around 1914). Yet it was
none other than Dean Henry
Rozorsky who took handouts
from the Arab Hithrs.
