The boards of United Hebrew
Schools and Cong. Beth Shalom have
approved the merger of their separate
high school programs into a single
community Jewish high school at
UHS.
The move will merge 50 to 55
Beth Shalom students into the UHS
classes next fall, increasing the
"critical mass" of students at the high
school and offering a better Jewish
social atmosphere to both groups.
UHS this year has 86 students enroll-
ed in its Sunday-only Judaica track
at the high school and 39 students
enrolled in the three-day-a-week
Hebraica track.
UHS president Dr. Barbara Good-
man sees the merger as a way to
begin "meeting a larger need in the
community. It will provide a central
place for Jewish studies for those not
involved in day school education, but
who want serious studies." She envi-
sions a communal high school even-
tually incorporating independent
high school programs at other con-
gregational schools.
"I see this as a beginning step
that we want to see expanded;' Good-
man said. Presently (Conservative)
Beth Abraham Hillel Moses and
Shaarey Zedek have independent pro-
grams, but Goodman believes the
smaller Reform congregations in
Detroit may also be interested in a
community high school. Two weeks

ago, The Jewish News reported that
the larger Reform congregations in
Detroit are considering opening their
own day school program. Still, Good-
man sees an afternoon community
high school going beyond the Con-
servative movement which has been
United Hebrew Schools' base. No
discussions with other congregations
have been scheduled. Goodman
believes the Beth Shalom-UHS high
school merger must be achieved
before further expansion is
considered.
