hire additional staff, reor-
ganize and reduce the
several-week time now
needed for Soviet emigres to
see a counselor.
Jewish Family Service and
its sister agency, Resettle-
ment Service, have the
equivalent of 19 full-time
personnel working with the
Soviet emigres. Since the in-
flux began this year, accor-
ding to Executive Director
Alan Goodman, the agencies
have added the equivalent of
6-7 full-time workers to plan
for arrivals, drive the
emigres from the airport, to
JVS and Sinai Hospital ap-
pointments, arrange for
apartments and do follow-up
work.
"We help people to survive
for the first couple of mon-
ths," Goodman says. "We
give them a budget and a
monthly check, instead of
paying bills for them as in
the past. It is a much colder
system, but it teaches them
to deal with America."
Benjamin Rosenthal, who
chaired a Federation
resettlement review sub-
committee earlier this year,
says, "What we have provid-
ed for new American ar-
rivals is a level of service
commensurate with what we
have given in the past, plus
more acculturation ser-
vices."
Money has not been a
problem to this point, Rosen-
thal says. "I think it is a
community feeling — and
hopefully the entire com-
munity feels this way — that
aquarter of a million of us
stood in Washington two
years ago and told (Soviet
Premier Mikhail) Gorbachev
to let our prople go. Now we
have to live up to our obliga-
tion."
Federation's Aronson says
Detroit has been taking
more Soviet Jews than some
other Jewish communities
"because of the depth of our
resources." To reduce
overall costs, anchor
families will be asked to help
as much as possible. He says
the Soviet emigres are not
drawn to southern U.S.
cities because they are not
used to the climate and
fewer job opportunities are
available.
"We have a good commu-
nal infrastructure here and
we have good job place-
ment," Aronson says. "If the
economy turns, that will be
another question."
The national Passage to
Freedom campaign is ex-
pected to conclude Dec. 31
with $50 million in pledges,
$25 million short of its goal.
Diaspora communities have
been given a goal of $350

million for Soviet Jewish
resettlement in Israel and
the United States over the
next three to five years.
Aronson expects immigra-
tion to continue at a high
pace: Israel anticipates
2,500 Soviet Jews this mon-
th and direct flights between
Moscow and Tel Aviv begin
in January. "We could have
100,000 Soviet Jews on the
move this year. The question
for us is how do we fund this
without hurting our local
Allied Jewish Campaign?
"How do we get the money
to Israel now? Do we solicit
now? Do we build this into
the 1991 Campaign, which
does not start until next
summer? What if the planes
start landing now?"
As far as immigration to
Detroit is concerned, Aron-
son believes "we're OK. The
system is being strained —
we're bursting at the seams
— but we are able to handle
it. Unlike other cities, we did
not have to re-create a
Resettlement Service and
other services when this
started."
Local agency staffs held
talks last week and Aronson
is meeting with agency
heads Jan. 5 to discuss the
situation.
"The number of im-
migrants is eclipsing 1979
(the record year that saw
51,000 Soviet Jews im-
migrate) by a long shot,"
Aronson says. "A lot of long-
range decisions will have to
be made on the basis of what
the Sovietgovernment
might do. But we are glad
we're in this andg lad that
Detroit isplaying a leader-
ship role." ❑

Sinai Bulding
Imaging Center

Sinai Health Care System
officials broke ground recent-
ly for their new imaging
center at 32005 Northwestern
Highway, Farmington Hills.
Located on a six-acre tract
between Middlebelt and 14
Mile roads, the 6,500-square-
foot facility will house a
Siemens Magneton 63 High
Resolution Magnetic
Resonance Imaging System,
as well as a Siemens
Somatom Plus CT scanning

unit.

"The center will provide ad-
ditional support for the
system's patients and physi-
cians in the northwestern
suburbs, as well as enhance
Sinai Hospital services," said
Dr. Philip N. Cascade, chair-
man of the department of
diagnostic imaging/radiology.
The imaging center is
scheduled to open in June.
