Welfare Federation benefici-
ary will suffer. Who wants the
task of deciding whether we
cut back services to the aged or
reduce funding to day schools?
Detroit is a very special
community, renowned
throughout the country for its
generosity. During the severe
recession in 1982-83, a lot of
people were hurting. And yet,
they saw their responsibilities
to those less fortunate.
Actually, giving — or doing
justly, as tzedaka is translated
— is more than a responsibil-
ity. It is a privilege. For some of
us, survivors of the Holocaust,
this privilege is made all the
sweeter by our good fortune to
live in freedom.
On a mission to Poland last
year, we wept for the millions
of souls lost to us — genera-
tions of artists and writers, of
scholars and scientists. But we
also wept for a generation who
had created magnificent agen-
cies and institutions of caring
and creativity. They wrote a
chapter in Jewish history that
was without parallel.
But when we left the
shadows of Poland and re-
turned to the sunlight of Israel
and America, we realized that
our history is far from over. On
desert settlements, we found
new hope for starving nations.
In once run-down Project Re-
newal neighborhoods, we
found a model for urban re-
newal that is the envy of other,
far wealthier countries. Here

.

at home, we found the vision
and sense of commitment to
realize a better Jewish future.
Nevertheless, the concern is
there: a decline ,in the number
of contributors could affect the
services we have traditionally
provided here at home and the
assistance we have rendered to
our people overseas.
What does this mean to each
of us? First, it means we must
think about our individual
commitment to the Campaign.
Are we really giving to the best
of our ability? Are we setting
an example of philanthropy for
our children to assure the fu-
ture of our community and its
institutions?
Second, it means we must lo-
cate new contributors. Can we
honestly say all of our rela-
tives, friends, neighbors and
co-workers are doing their
share? Without their support
of the Campaign, our commu-
nity cannot maintain its lead-
ership of American Jewry nor
fulfill its obligation to the
Jewish People. Let the Cam-
paign New Gifts Department
know there are some people
you'd like to include in this
community obligation.
At this turning point in
Jewish history, each of us is
asked to help write the next
chapter. Each of us has the
power to affect its outcome.
Please join us in support of
the 1987 Allied Jewish Cam-
paign, for we are one . . .
partners for life.

Menorah Did Not
`Enflame' City

I am writing regarding your
front page article of Jan. 9,
entitled "Grand Rapids
Menorah Enflames Commu-
nity."
As a long time subscriber to
The Jewish News and a
member of the Jewish commu-
nity, I don't know what your
headline means, as I don't
know the community is
enflamed with the menorah,
except the ACLU, which has
not said much this past
Chanukah.
I will give you some informa-
tion that you may not be aware
of about this past Chanukah.
The Grand Rapids Press edito-
rially approved the menorah at
the Calder Plaza, and all let-
ters to the editor were in favor
of the menorah. When the
Press asked the two rabbis of
the community to comment,
they did not. Of the 1,600 Jews
of the community, there are
many who approve the
menorah, and why your article
stated that they all were
against, I'll never know, but
I'm sure there is an explana-
tion.
If I were living in Detroit, I
would have believed your arti-
cle, but that I don't, I will not

believe it, and I feel someone
should give an explanation to
your readers.

Conflicting Policy
On Child Care

Your recent article, "Who's
Taking Care of Our Children?"
(Jan. 9) touched on a situation
critical to many families.
While many children are cared
for in day care centers, nearly
half of all children in care for
ten hours per week or more are
cared for in private day care
homes.
Several Detroit metro com-
munities have zoning or other
ordinances which outlaw the
use of private residences for
this purpose (even if the home
is state licensed).
Parents to Legalize In-Home
Child Care has been organized
to address this present crisis.
Presently, our attention is fo-
cused in Farmington Hills
where the apparent prohibi-
tion of home based child care is
in conflict with the needs of
