Dunkin Donuts To Open Shul

Dunkin Donuts on North-
western Highway, whose busi-
ness has increased since it went
kosher several months ago,
has launched a $5 million
building fund in the communi-

Midrash (study hall) on its

Dunkin Donuts, best known

for its Cholent Muffins, kishka-
flavored donuts and chopped
herring croissants, put in a
women's mikvah last week

walk in you'll be asked to take
a number. And wait."

What should be their first
choice? "Anywhere else, "he

Tigers Sign
Young Hurler -

The Detroit Tigers have
signed 12-year-old Mohammed
Morris of Ramallah, in the
West Bank, as a right-handed
pitcher expected to start Open-

spotted hurling rocks at Israeli
troops during the intifada and
Tiger scouts signed him on the
spot, suffering only minor
abrasions in the process.
"He's a little wild and his
curveball tends to break in on
left-handed soldiers," said
chief Tiger scout Sy Cellar,
"but he's definitely an impact
