Anonymous Cabbie
Aided Jews In Riot

ALAN HITSKY

Associate Editor

T

he 1967 riots in Det-
roit have brought back
sad memories for
many in the community, but
a recollection of heroism for
others.
Former Jewish Community
Center executive Irwin Shaw
recalled this week the month-
long heroism of a black
Detroit cab driver who took
food parcels to isolated Jewish
families in the 12th Street-
Dexter area.
The cabbie, whose name
does not appear in Jewish
communal records, was hired
on a daily basis to bring two
black youngsters to the
Meyers-Curtis JCC for a
Hebrew ulpan. One of the
youngsters was Claude
Young, a cousin of Detroit
Mayor Coleman Young.
When the riots broke out,
Jewish Family Service began
searching for someone to
deliver food to Jewish
families in the riot area. JFS
was located in the JCC at the
time, and the cabbie
volunteered.
"He took food into the area
for more than a month,"
recalled JFS executive
Samuel Lerner. "It took that
long before the area was felt
to be safe" and grocery stores
and other services in the riot
neighborhoods were restored.
"The city went in with arm-
ed men guarding the cleanup
crews, but many people were
afraid and many stores had
been destroyed."
Shaw remembers that the
cab driver insisted on hiring
an assistant to guard his cab
while he was delivering the
packages. The assistant was
paid for the four-to-six week
effort, but the cabbie refused
payment.
Twenty-five to 35 in-
dividuals received food
packages during that time,
Lerner said. JFS also loaned
two supervisors, Margaret
Weiner and Ruth Getz, to the
Interfaith Emergency Food
Council which was establish-
ed immediately after the
riots. The council distributed
food and clothing, and
established Project Find to
reunite families. Project Find
worked on 1,700 cases during
its first two weeks.
Weiner is now director of
professional services at JFS.
Getz is retired and lives in
Windsor.
The riots led to the
establishment of a housing

relocation project by JFS
which continues today.
Twenty-five persons who were
afraid to continue living in
their neighborhoods were
moved to the Eight Mile-
Lahser and Evergreen areas
with their rents subsidized by
the Jewish community. Many
Jews, however, chose to stay
in their neighborhoods,
Lerner said, having built up
a support network among
their neighbors.

Moshav Debt
Plan Approved

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Knesset Finance Committee
approved a rehabilitation
plan for moshavim July 23,
ending a long dispute bet-
ween Labor and Likud over
measures to ease their finan-
cial difficulties.
The plan, prepared by a
special subcommittee, would,
cancel part of the moshavim's
debts to banks and the Jewish
Agency. The repayment of
other loans would be spread
over a four-year period. They
amount to 852 million
shekels and would be repaid
at 6.7 percent interest.
The banks and the Jewish
Agency will write off the
balance of the debts, amoun-
ting to 24 million Shekels.
Three Likud members of the
committee, including former
Finance Minister Yoram
Aridor, voted against the pro-
posal. Aridor said it would not
solve the problem.

Brain Drain
For Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The brain
drain from Israel is reaching
serious proportions. According
to a survey by the Association
for the Study of Emigration,
224 of the country's senior
scientists, all of them holding
doctorates and specializing in
the hard sciences, left Israel
during the past year.
Most of them went to the U.S.

and the remainder to Western.
Europe. Five prominent scien-
tists of the Weizmarm Institute
departed in May. They said
they were going abroad because
of the lack of proper working
conditions.
According to data provided by
the Ministry of Immigration.
and Absorption, 32,000 univer-
sity graduates from Israel are
presently working in the U.S.
They include 8,000 engineers.
