three years ago on a teacher's
mission and Mrs. Sima has
taken two trips to the Jewish
state. They said they hoped
their children will come back
more mature and enlighten-
ed about their Jewish
heritage. "I think she'll bring
back good feelings, " Mrs.
Cozzetto said about daughter
Lisa.

Ozery said he hopes the
students will come home with
more than that. "I hope that
they will understand Israel
much better and realize the
importance of linkage of both
communities (Detroit and
Israel) for the survival of both
communities and have a
sense of partnership — that
we are one people."

that will perpetuate the
quality of day school educa-
tion," he said. In 1986 the
school expanded by adding
the Davidson Wing of 11
classrooms, funded by
businessman Bill Davidson,
owner of the Detroit Pistons.
Since the opening of that
wing the classrooms have
been quickly approaching
capacity, Riback said.
Founder Saul Waldman
said he is amazed by the way
the community has respond-
ed to day school education.
Thirty years ago, he recalled,
it was an "uphill battle" to
get Federation funding for a
day school. Today Hillel
receives Federation alloca-
tions in the hundred
thousands.
He said the school was
created to give Jewish
children a well-rounded
education, including Jewish
and secular studies. "We felt
a definite need that young
people should get that type of
education because that's
where our leaders will come
from."
Rabbi.Benjamin Gorrelick,
also a founder, said it was im-
portant for children to have
Hebrew among the subjects
they study. "Hebrew is a basic
need for Jewish kids to grow
up Jewishly," he said.
The day school previously
had a grade nine, but
suspended it last June for
lack of enrollment.
Riback said the school has
no plans to have its own high
school, but will join in an ef-
fort to create a community
Jewish high school.
Riback doesn't look at the
conclusion of the term of the
original Articles of Incorpora-
tion as the end of an era.
Rather, he sees it as a new
beginning. "We're embarking
on a new era. The school in-
tends to continue to provide
quality day school education
"We are focusing on
to the extent possible."
establishing an endowment

When the founders of Hillel
Day School filed Articles of
Incorporation in 1958 for the
school to exist for 30 years,
they were probably doing a lot
of wishful thinking. What
with a $13,000 grant from the
Jewish Welfare Federation
and 28 students in kinder-
garten and first grade, there
was a lot of wishing to be
done.
Yet, whether it was wishing,
or more likely the acceptance
of and desire for a Jewish day
school under Conservative
auspices, which provides
quality Jewish and secular
education, Hillel Day School
has survived to live out the
terms of its original mandate.
In celebration of its success,
the school has extended its
corporate existence to con-
tinue in perpetuity.
Some credit the programm-
ing. Others, the staff. Presi-
dent Ron Riback credits the
founders: Murray Frumin,
Leon Komisaruk, Morris M.
Jacobs, Morris Lieberman,
Milton Marwil, Morris
Schaver, Saul Waldman, Ben-
jamin Weiss, Rabbi Milton
Arm, Rabbi Jacob Chinitz,
Rabbi Benjamin Gorrelick,
Rabbi Moses Lehrman and
Rabbi Jacob. Segal.
Riback lauded these in-
dividuals for taking the risk
to start the school. "We are
celebrating (the end of the
term of the original Articles
of Incorporation) with the no-
tion of giving credit to the in-
dividuals who had the fore-
sight to create the school."
With more than 55 teachers
and 530 students in kinder-
garten through eighth grade,
Hillel Day School is "bursting
at the seams," according to
Riback. "In the not too dis-
tant future we'll have to em-
bark on a capital funds
campaign.
