Tunnel Of Love

Continued from preceding page

Why are there so few eligi-
ble Jewish singles in Wind-
sor? Why did the last mat-
chmaker wring her hands in
despair and move to Toronto
25 years ago?
Meretsky puts the blame on
the blue collar city's poor job
prospects. Her attitude
reflects that of many in a ci-
ty where the two best-known
employers are the Chrysler
mini-van plant and the nude-
dancing fleshpots - like
Jason's. There really just
aren't a lot of places where
you're going to find nice
Jewish boys and girls
working.
"Most people go away to
school and stay away," says
Meretsky, who plans to do the
same. "I don't think I'll ever
come back," she adds.
Even her recently-divorced
mother, the former Detroiter,
has followed a new love to
Toronto.

Sure, there are Jewish
singles to be found attending
the city's highly regarded
University of Windsor, but
27-year-old Ian Alexis isn't
too keen about them.
"It's too frustrating and too
transistory to get involved
with someone who is here for
only three or four days out of
the week and then has to go
back to Toronto," said Alexis.
"If you want to dip into the
greater pool, you have to go
to the States," he advises.
Alexis says most of the
young people in his age group
have gone to bigger cities and
found their marriage part-
ners there. Often, they'll
come back to Windsor to start
a family.
He praises the activities of
Detroit's Jewish Community
Center in bringing Jewish
singles together, but isn't too
enthusiastic over what Wind-
sor's center has tried to ac-
complish in that area.
Whenever Windsor's
Jewish Center attempts to
put together a program for
the city's singles the result is
"a feeble effort, a waste time,
money and effort," says
Alexis. He suggests the
center should "establish a
program to maintain young
people in this city. Right now
there's no real reason to
stay."
Alexis comes down hard on
the center's emphasis upon
providing programs directed
towards the city's senior
citizens. However he concedes
the aged make up the largest
segment of Windsor's Jewish
population.
But that doesn't stop him
from blaming the Jewish
Center because "No attempt
is made to keep the student or
young adult population grow-

ing in this city." Alexis says
the Center "has really miss-
ed the boat in terms of fur-
thering the population."
Alexis thinks the center
should be "trying to
stimulate another facility at
the university like a medical
or professional school that
will attract Jewish students.
Instead, as a result of all this
emphasis upon the senior
citizens, the younger Jewish
population of the city has suf-
fered."
He acknowledges that the
university's law, business
and social work schools are
among the most highly-rated
in the province and do attract
more than a few Jewish
students. But he says that
when it comes to studying
medicine or journalism, "Peo-
ple go elsewhere for their
education now and they
aren't coming back to
Windsor,
"And why should they come
back here?" he asks. "If there
were a new school on a
graduate level, people would
not have to leave the area."
But Feuer, who has seen
the light at the end of the
Windsor-Detroit tunnel,
doesn't hesitate to share it
with other Windsor Jewish
singles who find themselves
in the predicament he once
was.
"Tell them to join a group,
to get on a mailing list of ac-
tivities," says Feuer, stress-
ing the need to get involved
with Jewish singles programs
in Detroit.
"It's all up to the in-
dividual, and a lot of it is at-
titude," he says. "You won't
meet anybody sitting at home
and watching a hockey game
on Saturday night."
