Easy Scoop and Seal

Five local temples are considering opening
a combined day school in September 1988


Special to The Jewish News


etroit area Reform congre-
gations are laying the
groundwork for a Reform
day school by opening separate
kindergarten programs this fall. A
combined school could open as
early as September 1988, possibly
sharing the facilities of United He-
brew Schools' high school on
Twelve Mile Road in Southfield.
Temple Emanu-El currently
has 16 students in a kindergarten
program, and plans to have two

kindergarten classes in the fall.

in September, and Temple Kol Ami

prefer to emphasize that the
precedent-setting day school is still
very much in the planning stage, a

War Criminal
Gets Reprieve

Washington (JTA) — Al-
leged Nazi war criminal Karl
Linnas received an 11th-hour
reprieve from deportation to
the Soviet Union Monday
when Supreme Court Justice
Thurgood Marshall issued a
temporary stay to allow the

full court to consider the de-
portation order.
Marshall acted after a fed-
eral court in Manhattan re-
jected Linnas' final appeal
last week. The 67-year-old
native of Lithuania would
have been the first war
crimes suspect ever deported
to the Soviet Union. He was
tried there in absentia in
1962 and sentenced to death.
The deportation order was
expected to be carried out
Monday night. Linnas' fate
may be decided when the
Supreme Court holds its next
conference on April 17, or by
telephone poll of the nine
Justices before then. The
Supreme Court has twice in
the past declined to review
Linnas' case.

United Nations told an Ann
Arbor audience March 29.
Binyamin Netanyahu was
the keynote speaker at the
third annual Israel confer-

Michigan, sponsored by 17

He said that Israel is more
respected now than in the
past, due to a decline in Arab

power, better relations with
the U.S. and changing atti-
tudes about terrorism.
