.

Your article on our congre-
gation and the "East-side
Jews" (Oct. 3) was much ap-
preciated and brought out
much of why we are so proud
of Troy Jewish Congregation.
However, reporter Holzel
errs when he calls our
Judaism "tangential" simply
because of where we live. Re-
sidence does not define one's
degree of Jewishness. We are
not a religion of association
where living near a deli
measures the role of Judaism
in your life. Rather we are
religion of belief, study, and
action as practiced in our
homes, synagogues and
schools. These resources exist
in most communities, includ-
ing Troy. What matters is
how you use these resources
to practice your Judaism.
Judaism is certainly not
tangential to us at TJC, it is
the focal point upon which
our lives revolve. Perhaps it
is this approach that brings
us many members from
Southfield, Oak Park, West
Bloomfield, and other west-
ern suburbs who have crossed
Woodward and survived very
well, thank you.
Iry Wengrow

President
Troy Jewish Congregation

Downriver:
The Other Side

The question raised by Iry
Wengrow in the article 'East
of Woodward,' by David Hol-
zel in the Oct. 3 Jewish
News, "After .Farmington
Hills, Where?" should not go
unanswered. The answer is
simple: Downriver is the
other side.
Here, too, just as East of
Woodward, the Jewish com-
munity is fragmented geo-
graphically, living in an area
from Grosse Ile on the east to
Romulus on the west and
from Dearborn and Melvin-
dale on the north to Monroe
on the south, with many
communities lying in be-
tween.
Unlike the Troy congrega-
tion, Jews living in the
Downriver area already have
a synagogue - Beth Isaac in
Trenton, the only Jewish
house of worship between De-
troit and Toledo!! The
synagogue members in this
area, although small in num-
bers, can also be considered
to be similar in make-up to
that described as living East
of Woodward. Although Beth
Isaac follows a Conservative
practice, its members are free
to follow the Reform or Or-
thodox ways. Some even keep
a kosher home!! ...
There are many advan-
tages to living in the down-
river area. Although housing
costs are well below those of
the northern areas, one can
find homes for over $100,000
and even over $200,000. Both
1-75 and 1-94 serve as ar-

855-5822

teries to take one to the
downtown cultural area in
record time, without the traf-
fic hassles found on North-
western Highway and 1-75
north of Detroit! Living adja-
cent to Lake Erie or the De-
troit River (Wyandotte,
Riverview, Trenton, Grosse
Ile) is an added inducement
for those who enjoy boating
as a hobby ...
Having lived downriver for
only 29 years, I can truth-
fully say: Yes, there is an al-
ternative. A good life style
awaits on the other side!!!

I have just read your arti-
cle on "East. Of Woodward"
(Oct. 3) and I am appalled at
the lack of sensitivity. People
are allowed to move where
they want to; this is not the
Soviet Union. A Jew needs no
motive to move outside of the
"Jewish ghetto." ...
Does it matter if our
synagogue has ten members
or 1,000 members? As a
synagogue we perform
mitzvahs and serve as a
watchdog for the schools our
children attend. Why does it
matter if "East Of Wood-
ward" becomes an Eden?
Why didn't you point out that
through the Troy Jewish
Congregation, Rochester
schools no longer do
standardized testing on the
High Holidays and that
Christ is no longer part of the
Christmas celebrations our
children learn in public
schools?
Troy Jewish Congregation
has provided its members
(who obviously care about
Judaism) a network and a
place in the community.
Whether the Jewish popula-
tion in Troy or Rochester in-
creases is of no consequence.
We serve our communities,
educate our children, educate
our neighbors and bring
awareness to the public
schools.
That is what Troy Jewish
Congregation is about —
support, education and
awareness.

Editor Emeritus
Is Applauded

Our Ahad HaAm is Philip
Slomovitz. Let us treasure,
and pay appropriate heed to
this man of rare integrity
and commitment. His pleas
that we not atone for man-
kind (Oct. 10) is heard and
fervently applauded. It WILL
happen again — unless our
Jewish voices blend as one.
