Detroiters Examine
Interfaith Relations

DAVID HOLZEL

Staff Writer

Relations between Jews and
Catholics, at least locally, have never
been better, say activists of both
religions involved in interfaith
dialogue. All agree that sound rela-
tions are necessary, even axiomatic,
despite, or perhaps because of the
Catholic Church's dismal treatment
of the Jews over 19 centuries.
Archbishop Edmund C. Szoka of
Detroit will deal with this issue in an
address to the Jewish Community
Council's closing delegate assembly,
8 p.m. Thursday, at Cong. Shaarey
Zedek. Focusing on his recent visit to
Israel, the archbishop will speak on

"Reflections and Implications for
Catholic-Jewish Relations."
Despite a strong desire among
many Jews and Catholics for warmer,
more fruitful relations, there is no
unanimity on the nature of the bonds
which hold those relations in place.
Nor do Jews and Catholics see eye to
eye on a host of issues ranging from
Jewish opposition to public funding
for parochial schools to Vatican non-
recognition of Israel.
"We never allow disagreements to
interfere with our overall agreement,"
explained Judge John H. Shepherd of
the Michigan Court of Appeals. "On

More than 6,000 youngsters have
used the Tamarack Adventure Center
near Tel-Twelve Mall since the youth
program was opened Feb. 15 and
Fresh Air Society officials are now
studying what to do with the drop-in
program for kids after it closes at the
end of this month for the summer.
"We feel it has been very suc-
cessful," said Dr. Richard Krugel,
president of the Fresh Air Society. An
FAS review committee will study the
Adventure Center this summer to
analyze what youngsters were served
by the program and study its
economic feasibility. An FAS staff

member said this week that income
has equalled operating expenses at
the Adventure Center, but a major
factor in continuing the program will
be the availability of the former
supermarket building next year.
"We won't know until the end of
the summer," Dr. Krugel explained.
Former FAS board member Joel Ger-
shenson donated use of the former
Chatham Supermarket building at
the south end of the Tel-Twelve com-
plex. A new hotel has been proposed
for the site, and Gershenson may ex-
ercise several options over the
summer.
"There will be virtually no cost
involved if we repeat the program
here," Dr. Krugel said. If the program
