To Our Readers:

Beginning with today's edition, The Jewish News
breaks new ground with a section geared toward the needs
and interests of Jewish singles. Entitled Single Life, the
section represents a commitment by The Jewish News to
service our singles — an often-neglected group within the
community — with information that will be insightful,
enjoyable and useful.
Local News Editor Heidi Press and Sandra Maurer,
editor of the Jewish Singles Event Source newsletter, will
be teaming up to provide a weekly menu of stories, col-
umns, calendars and features.
It is our expectation that Single Life will provide our
Jewish singles with a weekly "meeting place" and bring
them closer to the Jewish community ... and each other.
We welcome your comments and suggestions.

Volunteers
Article Applauded

L

\ _ ,

On behalf of the National
Council of Jewish. Women,
Greater Detroit Section, may
I express our pleasure in se-
eing the space accorded to the
excellent article "Vanishing
Volunteers" in the Oct. 10 is-
sue. The authors cited the is-
sues with which we too have
wrestled in maintaining our
3,000 membership in the
Greater Detroit area and in
involving our members in our
various programs and proj-
ects ...
We were delighted to see
such issues as volunteer
burn-out, denigration of vol-
unteerism and lack of volun-
teer availability handled in
such a forthright and well-
researched manner. Perhaps
in bringing these issues be-
fore the public, interest in
volunteerism will grow and
we can see a resurgence of
the commitment to help
others that has made our
community such a vital one.

Butcher's Suit
Vs. Hierarchy

/—

The comment "Butcher's
Suit A Grave Error" (Letters,
Oct. 3), seems in itself to be
quite erroneous. Communal
discipline depends on a
hierarchy that has not been
corrupted. Furthermore, if
some one person can prove
said corruption, . it then be-
comes a manifestation of the
highest responsibility.
The attorney who has
taken this case should be
commended and not con-
demned. In the pragmatic
sense, be he Jewish or non-
Jewish, any person who
would cast aspersions toward
such a man just for doing
what his legal calling says he
must do, then, maybe, this is
the type of person who should
be reprimanded.
As a Jew myself, I can say,
there is only one constituted
leadership to which all Jews
are to give undivided adher-
ance, and that is to Torah it-
self. If we put our hierarchy
above Torah, then we commit
the Averah of "worshipping
the false idol" of the hierar-
chy and not Torah, something

we must never do. To this,
there certainly is no excep-
tion.

As a former Detroiter I
look forward to reading The
Jewish News every week to
see what is going on with the
Jewish community out there.
I just read the article "East
of Woodward" (Oct. 3), and I
thought it was very good. It
is nice to know that there is
a Jewish community growing
in eastern Oakland County.
What I would like to see
now is an article about where
former Detroit area Jews,
like myself, are living outside
of Detroit or even Michigan,
and what they are doing ...

Pluralism Vs.
Single Issue

Recent articles and the Oct.
10 editorial ("Not Only Is-
rael") continue to hammer on
the question of whether the
Jewish community can afford
to be (or be viewed to be) a
"single issue" community.
A few observations are in
order:
The implication is that we
have done so well on the
"single issue" of Israel that
we can now turn some of our
political concern as a group
to other issues. This is far
from the case. The fact is
that we didn't win the
AWACS vote and this vote
has see a pattern which con-
tinues to this very day.
The Saudis have gotten the
bulk of their shopping list in
recent years. Other Arab
states haven't faired too
poorly either.
Let's be honest about it —
the first time people started
talking about our being a
"one-issue-community" was
when we lost the AWACS
vote and we started feeling
threatened as a community.
Also, almost every time a
Jewish spokesman (and your
editorial) says that we should
