Young Israel of Oak-Woods, where he is
an active member and past president.
He was a member of the first
graduating class of Akiva Hebrew Day
School in 1974. As a child and an adult,
Torgow was extremely close to his
grandfather, Manuel Merzon, who
recently died. "He was my mentor —
professionally, personally and
religiously. He was one of the first
Jewish lawyers (among his peers) to
wear a yarmulke in court, recalls
Torgow. After high school Torgow spent
a year in Israel studying Talmud.
During his college years at Yeshiva
University, he was one of ten students
chosen yearly to teach Jewish studies in
Melbourne, Australia for three months.
"It was a marvelous experience." From
1977-1979 he was the Central East
Regional director of National Conference
of Synagogue Youth. During law school,
he began working in the law firm of
Zeff & Zeff. There he met his future
partner, Paul Swanson of Grosse Pointe
Shores. He is now with his own firm
Swanson & Torgow, where his
grandfather was of counsel. On Shabbat,
Torgow spends time with his family and
friends studying and praying. He
believes home and school should be
filled with Jewish traditions. "A
stronger background, a stronger faith is
more hopeful for the continuity of
