The Jewish Hall, like most
localized Halls of Fame, does
not choose its inductees by a
vote. A selection committee,
chaired this year by Bob
Steinberg and Bill Hertz,
presents nominees to the
board. The board then dis-
cusses the nominees and
makes its selections.
The board does not vote
on its nominees. The selec-
tions are made by discussion
and consensus of the board
The Jewish Hall is not a
good candidate for contro-
versy because, as Grossman
says, "our list (of potential
inductees) is not so deep.
A leading candidate who
doesn't make it this year is
gonna make it next year."
At its meeting last Wednes-
day, the Hall also selected its
officers. Bill Jacobs remains
as president. Vice-presidents
are Steinberg, Seymour
Brode, Mickey Fishman and
Myron Milgrom. Hertz is the
treasurer. Elayne Wolfson is
the assistant executive direc-
tor. Board members are Ann
Newman, Nate Pollack,
Shirley Foon, Murray Hoz-
man, Fred Steinhardt and
Leon Shurgin.
Grossman hopes the hall
will continue to expand and
"grow stronger. We hope to
add new projects, besides the
Special Games. We're looking
into several other kinds of
projects. We do feel we have a
niche in the community. Cer-
tainly there's broad support
in our community for all
kinds of activities. The
Jewish community is the best
at raising money and taking
care of things. But we're in a
niche that we think some-
times gets overlooked.
"Athletics and sports and
recreation is sometimes a lux-
ury and not a necessity.
Although we're looking at it
more as a necessity. So we
like the niche we've found. By
the same token I don't think
we take ourselves too serious-

Akiva Squad
Visits N.Y.

The Akiva floor hockey
team made its first trip last
weekend, playing three
games against the Talmudic
Institute of Upper New York,
in Rochester.
The teams played three
times, but only the final
game, on Saturday, was
played on a regulation-sized
floor, according to Akiva
coach Moshe Rose. Rochester
won that contest, 12-4. Rose
reported that Rochester had a
better-balanced squad which
heavily outshot Akiva. Goalie
David Rosenberg was strong
in the Akiva nets despite the
12 goals. "He was really
under pressure and he came
through when he had to," said
Rose. Raffle Zuroff scored
three Akiva goals, Danny
Betsalel added one and Her-
shel Goulson assisted on all
four markers.
Rose says his team enjoyed
its trip, and their Rochester
hosts. "The people there were
very friendly," he said.
Detroiter Max Berlin, who at-
tends TUINY, helped
organize the trip.
