FRIDAY, OCT. 23, 1987

For the first time, the
American Jewish Committee
is sponsoring a city-wide shin-
dig called Festival '88 — a
May extravaganza geared at
bringing Detroit's entire
Jewish population under one
roof and kicking off Israel's
40th birthday celebration.
"We've never had anything
like this before," said Festival
`88 director Jean Hollander,
who's hoping the Festival will
become an annual event.
"The concept of having an
ethnic Jewish festival encom-
passing everyone from our
children to our senior citizens
with music, dance and food is
a- real breakthrough. We've
wanted to do this for years
and years."
Though the Jewish Welfare
Federation traditionally
takes charge of Detroit's large
scale Jewish festivities, at
least for one day they will
play second fiddle to the AJC,
planning to focus their
energy on other anniversary
activities.
Coined the "Family Reu-
nion:' Festival '88 is planned
as a cultural arts fair that
will "bring together the
diverse elements of the
greater Jewish community of
Metropolitan Detroit."
Scheduled for Sunday, May
1, 1988 at the Jewish Com-
munity Center in West
Bloomfield, the Festival will
begin at 10 a.m. and last into
the evening. Festival officials
are hoping for crowds of up to
25,000 people. What's in the
plans? -
"First of all, being Jews,
we're going to eat;' quipped
AJC president David Jaffe.
The Festival food booths will
featureEthiopian, Sephardic,
Hungarian, Romanian, Rus-
sian and Israeli cuisine. In ad-
dition, there will be interna-
tional entertainment, art
displays and children's ac-
tivities, including story tell-
ing and special musical
programs.
And, while the Federation
will coordinate the entire an-
niversary celebration, pro-
viding publicity and insuring
a full two-week calendar of
events, responsibility for the
Festival will remain with the
AJC.
"We're the leaders for that
day for the whole communi-
ty," said Jaffe. "It's the first
time we've done a commun-
ity-wide event of this nature."
Said Hollander: "It's going
to be a gigantically, tremen-

dously, overwhelmingly suc-

As for the rest of the an-
niversary activities, final ar-
rangments are still being
made. The Federation's 40th
Anniversary Committee,
headed by Marlene and Paul
Borman, is now working out
the final details.
