THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

at the Jewish Community
Center. "I just had to show
my out-of-state license."
Shiloff is the first to admit
that he still hasn't quite
made the break from El Paso
and still keeps the Texas
license and plates. "It's hard
moving into a brand new city
and not knowing your way
around." However, he is will-
ing to go elsewhere if his job
requires it.
"I met a few people early
on. I got a list of people to
contact from friends of my
parents who were originally
from Detroit but are now liv-
ing in El Paso. I gave a few
of them a call."
At a party at Cahoots
sponsored by the B'nai B'rith
Friendship Singles in early
October, he found that "it
wasn't a good place to meet
people. It was just a group of
people herded into a bar."
At a friend's suggestion, he
got involved with the Jewish
Welfare Federation Young
Adult Division (YAD). His
first venture was to a party
the group held at the Tam
O'Shanter Country Club in
West Bloomfield. "I was sur-
prised at how many Jewish
singles there were. I mean,
consider where I lived." He
has since put his name on a
list to volunteer for the group
activities.
He has been very satisfied
with YAD. "I have had more
success at meeting people
through them." In fact, it was
at that first party that Shiloff
met two other people who are
from Indiana, Stephen Moritz
and Karen Metzger.
Moritz, 22, is originally
from Pittsburgh and most re-
cently from Indiana where he
also attended Indiana Uni-
versity. He came to Detroit to
work as a sales representa-
tive for NCR Corp. He has
been here since June.
Moritz had a friend in De-
troit that he had known from
a past trip to Israel who he is
close to here. However, since
his job takes him back and
forth to the company head-
quarters in Dayton, Ohio, he
hasn't had much time to
explore the area. "I don't
know the city real well yet
and that's a real problem for
me."
It was at the YAD party
that Moritz met Metzger
whom he recognized from In-
diana University and became
reacquainted with her. Shiloff
was standing nearby, over-
heard the conversation and
joined in. They have all be-
come friends.
Metzger, 22, was imported
to Detroit to work for EDS.
She is in an assistant
engineer development pro-
gram.
"When I first got here, I
went to the Jewish Center
and took advantage of the
six-month membership offer.
Soon after, I was contacted by
the Young Adult Division. It
was really fortunate for me
because ever since I have got-

ten here I had been looking
for a Jewish group to join.
There aren't many Jewish
people at EDS.
"It was a real coincidence
running into Stephen and
Stuart."
Eric Starkman, 31, was
born in Toronto, went to
graduate school in Boston,
Mass., then returned to
Canada to work in Montreal.
For the past seven months,
he has been a business writer
for The Detroit News.
"It has been a tough ad-
justment. The lifestyle is
different than I'm used to."
The transition has become
more difficult due to the fact
that his job requires long
hours and frequent travel all
over the country.
He has managed to go to a
few singles dances but "didn't
find it very rewarding. Those
dances are not conducive to
meeting singles but the same
goes for Toronto, Montreal or
Boston, too. A good majority
of the people I've met at sing-
les dances tend to complain
about them or apologize for
being there."
Another observation he
makes is that "people in De-
troit are much more tied to
their automobiles and travel
much further distances in
their daily routine."
Starkman has done more
driving in the past few
months than he did in one
year in Montreal. "What's
difficult for me is that the
Jewish community in Detroit
is more spread out where as
in Toronto its larger but
more integrated."
He has had little trouble
navigating around the area
since he "knew Detroit fairly
well before I moved here."
Starkman has joined the
Franklin Racquet Club, but
because of his work schedule,
he goes early in the morning
and misses out on a lot of
socializing for which the club
is noted.
He has met people through
friends he has had here and
has been "fixed-up" on dates
a few times. But he finds it
hard to meet people that
share his interests.
"People I have met have
been nice, friendly and very
helpful. But I find that people
here are much more mate-
rialistic than in other cities
that I have been in. In fact, I
have never been asked so
many times what kind of car
I drive."
I had to ask ... He drives a
1986 Celica.
