A Third Generation Roofing Family in Detroit

Day School ninth graders who
traveled with Rabbi Robert
Abramson to Washington.
Elana and her dad, Allan,
waited as the crowd slowly
began the march from the
Ellipse to the Mall.
"How many people there
are here is anybody's guess,"
Allan Nachman said, "but it's
an impressive statement."
Fellow marcher David Chait
would later add, "The only
other time I was ever in a line
like this was waiting to get
into a U-M game?'
The massive crowd slowly
moved down Constitution
Avenue, covering the eight-
lane street from sidewalk to
sidewalk. A huge "Let My
People Go" banner carried by
12 members of the Boston
contingent, nipped at the
heels of the Michigan delega-
tion stragglers. The delega-
tion separated during the
two-mile, hour-long walk to
the Mall's speakers platform,
but stayed in visual contact
because of the distinctive
Detroit hats.
Asked if she liked the long
walk, 7-year-old Naomi Loebl,
a Hillel Day School student,
gave an emphatic "No" with
a big grin on her face.
Naomi's mother, Judy, said it
was exciting to see so many
people. "There's a real sense
of unity. It brings back the
spirit of the `60s." Mrs. Loebl
said she wanted her daughter
to feel the sense of frustration
felt by Soviet Jews and be
part of an historic event. "My
mother used to take me to
demonstrations when I was a
child."
As the crowd reached 7th
Street and turned toward the
Mall, Steve Rosen of the Ann
Arbor contingent yelled out,
"Hey Ann Arbor!" The
delegation responded with a
"Yes?"
"Turn right!" roared Rosen,
and the crowd turned the
corner.
Back on Constituiton, a
small man slowly made his
way through the crowd trying
to distribute literature. A
huge, bearded Jew followed
right behind him, warning,
"Jews for Jesus! Don't take it!
Jews for Jesus!"

2:20 p.m. The Michigan

delegation moved past 6th
Street, still a block from the
speakers. The crush of people
made it nearly impossible to
hear or see. Several Michiga-
nians slowly worked their
way forward, while others
moved to the edges of the
crowd where it was easier to
hear, but not see. Even a
giant video screen on the
speakers platform was hard to
see through the masses.
