Two events draw hundreds
to the Neighborhood Project

Fun Day program at United Hebrew Schools and a Kosher
Food and Judaica Craft Fair at the Jimmy Prentis Morris
Jewish Center drew hundreds of Southfield and Oak Park
residents the, last two Sundays.
"We wanted people to have fun, and we wanted people
to know what a great neighborhood we have here," said Les Goldstein,
co-chair with Leslie London of the April 17 Project Fun Day. That
event was co-sponsored by the Jewish Welfare Federation's
Neighborhood Project and the informal Greater Square Mile group,
incorporating residents living in the area bounded by 11 and 12 Mile
Roads and Evergreen and Lahser, plus the Bell Road area.
Last Sunday's fair at JPM highlighted kosher caterers, merchants
and restaurants in the Oak Park - Southfield area, as well as Jewish
art and crafts, pony rides and refreshments. More than 1,500 persons
jammed JPM for the event.
Goldstein said that both events served to highlight the Jewish
neighborhoods in Oak Park and Southfield. "The outstanding
characteristics," he said, "are the home value and the sense of
neighborhood." _111
