What God has sent, no
one can prevent.
— Yiddish Proverb
It was bashert (fated, de -
stined) for Teresa Miller of
Edinborough, Scotland, and
Chuck Brooks of Southfield to
meet. And The Jewish News
helped, indirectly, to arrange
it.
Brooks, owner of a head-
hunting agency, placed a dis-
play personal ad in The
Jewish News in August 1985,
"looking for a nice Jewish
lady for (hopefully) a perma-
nent relationship."
A relative of Miller's,
Samuel Raab of Redford
Township, saw the ad and
suggested that his wife June
send it to Miller, her cousin
in Scotland, with a wish for
good luck. Little did he know
what he had wrought. Miller
responded to the ad, and to
make a long story short, she
is now Mrs. Chuck Brooks.
Both the Brookses never
really expected anything to
happen as a result of placing
and responding to the ad.
Mrs. Brooks had never an-
swered a personal ad before.
What made her answer this
•ad? She said she thought to
herself, "What the heck, it's
3,500 miles away." Brooks
himself took a dim view. He
responsed to her letter think-
ing, "I'll never meet this lady
anyway."
Brooks said he started get-
ting the letters from Miller
about three weeks after the
ad ran. By February 1986,
the letters ' started getting
serious, according to Brooks.
In addition, transatlantic
phone bills were piling up on
both sides of the ocean.
Miller, who owned a resale
shop in Edinborough landed
in Detroit on April 17. The
next day at noon, Brooks
proposed. "Our meeting con-

firmed what I already knew,"
that he was going to ask her
to marry him, Brooks said.
The new Mrs. Brooks said
it was her husband's honesty
that attracted her to him.
Brooks was 'intrigued by her
letters. He decided in March
that he wanted to meet her.
"It got to a point where the
intrigue was driving me
crazy." He said that when
they met there was "instant
acceptance."
Both are divorced. Brooks
has three children from a
previous marriage, and they
live in California. Mrs.
Brooks also has three chil-
dren from a prior marriage,
one is in medical school in
Scotland, and the other two
are here with her.
Brooks said he chose to run
the ads because "anything
can be used and should be
used to accomplish a goal,"
including advertising, he re-
marked. After having co-
founded and directed the
Singles 2 organization at the
Jewish Community Center
but not really meeting any-
body, he decided to advertise.
"I felt a companion adver-
tisement was a very good
source. The Jewish News was
the Number One spot" in
which to place it, he said.
Would Brooks recommend
that others take advantage of
the personals? "No question!"
