for indigents," said Silver.
"There are those who have
bought homes in the target
areas who could affort a
house in West Bloomfield but
prefer to live here."
In addition to loans for new
home buyers, the
Neighborhood Project, in con-
junction with the B'nai Brith
Covenant Credit Union, offers
residents of the target areas
up to $5,000 in loans for home
improvements.
But the Neighborhood Pro-
ject isn't just a loan agency.
"The loan is just one part of
the total program," said
Silver, who is continuously
working on new community-
wide projects aimed at
developing "a feeling of
neighborhood, friendship,
relationship, cohesiveness
and pride" for the residents of
these areas. Two neighbor-
hood groups, one in
Southfield and the other in
Oak Park, have been formed
to plan social events and com-
munity projects. From
neighborhood saftey pro-
grams to a kosher food fair,
Silver says the groups have
been very successful in in-
tegrating the new and long-
time residents.

"We're not trying to create
a Jewish ghetto in these
areas," said Silver. "Our focus
is not to keep other ethnic
groups out. We want to main-
tain a balanced racial and
ethnic diversity."
The Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion is hoping the success of
the Neighborhood Project will
spare local Jewish organiza-
tions and institutions the ex-
pense and pains involved with
a move to the northwest
suburbs. "Some institutions
might want to reassess their
north and westward moves,"
suggested Federation presi-
dent Giles.
While few dare predict the
future of the Neighborhood
Project, those involved re-
main optimistic. Said Giles:
"Nobody can say with cer-
tainty what's going to take
place in ten years. But in five
years, Oak Park and
Southfield will still be impor-
tant centers of Jewish living
and in ten years the north-
west and westward migration
will largely be behind us."
Said Silver: "Some people
who buy houses in Southfield
and Oak Park now may not be
there in ten years, but there
will be others."

Detroit Bonds Affiliate
Marks Record Year

The Metro Detroit State of
Israel Bond Organization was
at the forefront of 1987 major
city top producers as the na-
tional Israel Bond organiza-
tion realized its best year
with sales of more than
$604,249,000.
Locally, more than $20.4
million in loan fund dollars
was invested during the past
12 months through the Israel
Bond program, it was an-
nounced by Metro Detroit
Cash Collection Chairman
Jerome Soble. Sales of Israel
securities locally in 1987 top-
ped Detroit's 1986 production
by more than $5.3 million,
representing a 36 percent in-
crease and the highest sales
achieved in the history of
Detroit's 36-year campaign.
Statements by individual
division chairmen at the re-
cent board meeting supported
Soble's report. Women's Divi-
sion Chairman Barbara
Stollman and New Leader-
ship Division Co-chairmen
Donald Wagner and Larry
Wolfe announced substantial
increases in their divisions'
memberships and purchases.
The women's division,
augmented by New Leader-
ship volunteers, mounted a
year-long reinvestment
telephone campaign under
the chairmanship of Dottie

Wagner, resulting in over $1
million in .maturing Bonds
being reinvested into higher-
value securities to aid Israel's
economic growth.
Wagner reported that New
Leadership, a rapidly growing
division of young adults, had
more than doubled its
membership in the past year
and has expanded its ex-
ecutive and general boards.
Following a year of recruit-
ment and educational ac-
tivities during 1986, a highly
successful sales campaign
was added to the division's
1987 agenda, culminating in
"Bonds Go Broadway," a for-
mal supper-dance geared to
Bond purchases, and
resulting in New Leadership
being responsible for new
subscriptions.
Wagner's co-chairman,
Wolfe, added that New
Leadership soon will be issu-
ing a 1988-1989 calendar/ad
book which will serve several
functions, including pro-
viding material about the
Bond instruments and the
current Israeli projects being
built with the help of Israel
Bonds, plus information per-
taining to the New Leader-
ship Division and its schedul-
ed activities.

tivities chairman, reported
