Michigan Communities
Mobilize For Dec. 6

LILA ORBACH

Special to The Jewish News

A

s President Reagan
and General Secre-
tary Gorbachev busily
prepare for their upcoming
U.S. summit, other officials in
Washington and around the
country are busy organizing
the largest Jewish rally ever
held in Washington.
Titled "The Washington
Mobilization for Soviet
Jewry," the rally is scheduled
for Sunday, Dec. 6 — one day
before the two world leaders
are expected to sign a nuclear
missile reduction pact.
Preliminary estimates call for
a crowd of more than 100,000.
Officials say the message of
the rally is clear: Free Soviet
Jews.
In Detroit, the Jewish Com-
munity Council has nearly
filled a 344-seat aircraft and
is expected to charter a se-
cond plane in order to
facilitate the hundreds of
Michigan residents interested
in attending the rally.
This week, Marc Israel,
president of Michigan State
TempleYouth groups, reported
some 75 high school students
from around the state would
be traveling to Washington, a
number that would secure the
chartering of a second
airplane.
The cost of the round-trip
flight is $115. A subsidized
fee of $75 is available.
In Ann Arbor, especially at
the Univerisity of Michigan,
a major campaign effort is
underway to stir interest in
the Dec. 6 rally. Last Sunday,
the U-M Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry held a "Sym-
posium on Soviet Jewry." Of
the 100 students who attend-
ed the symposium, several
dozen have already signed up
for the bus trip to
Washington.
"This is the time and place
to be if you want to make a
difference on behalf of Soviet
Jews," said Mark Levin of the
National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, one of the four
symposium speakers. "I in-
vite, urge, push, hope all of
you will be there Dec. 6," he
said, repeating the date near-
ly a dozen times, in order to
emphasize its importance. "It
will rank alongside other
famous dates in Jewish
history." The Ann Arbor Ac-
tion for Soviet Jewry, in con-
junction with two Ann Arbor
synagogues is hoping to take
as many as 50 Ann Arbor
residents to the nation's
capitol — also by bus. "I hope

the response will be good,"
said Alla Kan, a leader of the
Ann Arbor Action group and
director of the U-M
Technology Transfer Center.
Herself a Soviet immigrant,
Kan is convinced the rally
will have great historical
significance. "It will be
something to tell your grand-
children about."

Joint Service
At Temple

The seventh annual
Thanksgiving ecumenical
service will be held at 7:30
p.m. Nov. 22 at Temple
Emanu-El.
The temple's congregation
will be joined by members,
choirs and clergy of St. Bede's
Catholic Church of Southfield
and First United Methodist
Church of Royal Oak. Rabbi
Lane Steinger of Temple
Emanu-El will deliver the ad-
dress on the theme of
Thanksgiving.
According to Rabbi Ste-
inger, the service was in-
itiated by temple member
Walter Stark "who felt it was
important to acknowledge the
spiritual meaning of
Thanksgiving with friends
and neighbors."
Rabbi Steinger said First
United Methodist was chosen
as a partner because in the
past it had helped the con-
gregation in a time of need.
As the temple building was
being constructed, the church
allowed the Jewish congrega-
tion to meet in its facilities.
Steinger said he believed that
St. Bede's had been chosen to
participate because at one
time in the past it had once
held a joint program with
Temple Emanu-El.
All of the participants in
the ecumenical service will be
asked to bring a can of food
for the needy. The food will be
donated to a food bank or
soup kitchen of the host con-
gregation's choice.

Meal Program

Jewish Women, Greater

tional volunteers to help
