"That the entire communi-
ty is involved is very ex-
citing," Mrs. Kaufman said.
The organizing committee
had "no constraints. We
didn't think about costs or
time, but what we wanted .. .
and every program we dream-
ed about is in place today.
Nothing was dropped for
budgetary reasons."
One program that was re-
quested by the Muskegon
area churches had to be
modified, however. The chur-
ches asked for a videotaped
explanation of basic Jewish

traditions, but Mrs. Kaufman
found after months of sear-
ching nationally "that none
of the Jewish organizations
have ever created this." In-
stead, the committee obtain-
ed copies of the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions' "Jewish Home Series"
booklets for distribution to
the churches.

The Muskegon centennial
group plans to publish a
synopsis of their group effort.
"This is a wonderful oppor-
tunity for someone to
replicate this in the future,"
Mrs. Kaufman said.
Persons interested in the
synopsis or a copy of the
centennial calendar of events
can write to Mrs. Kaufman,

"The demographics show
that the congregation is not
replenishing itself. If this con-
tinues," Roth said, "the con-
gregation will contract and
eventually die." Ten to 15
years ago B'nai Moshe had
750 families.
The synagogue has had
budget deficits in four of the
last five years, Roth said, and
more than 55 percent of the
congregation pay less than
base dues.
The synagogue's basic
premise for considering a
move is that it does not have
"enough young families to
carry us into the next genera-
tion" and "we don't expect to
attract those young families"
in Oak Park, Roth said.
In response to questions,
Roth said 60-70 percent of the
congregation's present
membership resides in Oak
Park, Southfield, Lathrup
Village and Huntington
Woods. He said that if the con-
gregation decides to move, it
is the congregational leader-
ship's intention to maintain a
presence in Oak Park by leas-
ing space in the current
building when it is sold or
through rented facilties in the
area. He said B'nai Moshe's
new nursery school, opening
this month, would also retain
a presence in Oak Park.
Several congregants ques-
tioned if B'nai Moshe had
conducted surveys to ascer-
tain interest in Farmington
Hills and West Bloomfield.
They were told this had not
been done, and there were no
guarantees that the
synagogue would survive if it
moved. "But I know what will
happen if we don't move,"
Roth said.

Karl Greenberg, a long-time
member of the congregation
and former board member,
said he lives "only ten
houses" from the Oak Park
synagogue but supports a
move to West Bloomfield. "We
will get back our kids and our
families" who have moved
away from the Oak Park area,
Greenberg said.
Rabbi Allan Meyerowitz
told the congregation that
B'nai Moshe must continue to
reach out to young people.
"We must go where they are,"
he said, "in order to continue
making an incredible con-
tribution to the Jewish com-
munity and to Detroit."

Nerve Damage
Is Repaired

Rehovot, Israel — Suc-
cessful induction of nerve
regeneration in the central
nervous system of living
mammals has been demon-
strated by Weizmann In-
stitute neurobiologists.
Rabbits with severely in-
jured optic nerves — which
when untreated cease func-
tioning and begin to
degenerate — were exposed to
nerve growth-promoting sub-
stances from fish. This treat-
ment was combined with
short daily exposure to low-
energy laser light. It resulted
in stimulation of a dense
growth of nerve fibers which
traversed the site of injury,
many of the fibers growing
with their protective myelin
sheaths, which are essential
for complete recovery of nerve
functions.
