B'nai Moshe

Continued from Page 1

$75,000 to develop each of
the seven lots. But the cou-
ple would rather combine
their property with the land
B'nai Moshe hopes to buy to
build a larger subdivision.
He contends if the
synagogue is approved, his
parents' land should be
rezoned from single-family
to multi-family use.
Trustee Judith Holtz said
according to a letter she
received from Suzanne
Glagola, who owns part of
the 15-acre parcel B'nai
Moshe wants to buy, Glagola
and her husband Michael
have tried three times to
work with the Iafrates on a
development project. James
Iafrate told Holtz this was
not true.
Albert Leader, B'nai
Moshe's attorney, said the
synagogue is under no
obligation to make profits
for the Iafrates. -
Yet, the congregation has
offered to give 10 feet of its
southern boundary to the
Iafrates so the couple can
develop the parcel as a sin-
gle-family subdivision.
Township Treasurer
Denise Hammond, who
along with Township Super-
visor Sandra Draur,
Township Clerk Sharon Law
and trustee Dennis Vatsis
voted against the proposal,
felt the township must con-
sider how the synagogue will
affect the Iafrates.
Trustees also denied the
synagogue's request because
the 500-space parking lot it
has proposed is next to the
Iafrate property. Any
residential development on
the property would be im-
pacted by the lights, noise
and exhaust fumes from the
cars in the lot, they said.
Rabbi Allan Meyerowitz
said he is not surprised by

the outcome since the
meeting was held only to
give the synagogue a reason
for denial.
Yet he is pleased that the
West Bloomfield Clergy
Association voted to support
B'nai Moshe's proposal.
In a letter to trustees, the
association said, "Our
Township Board should be
encouraging the residential
character of our
neighborhoods by allowing
places of worship to flourish
in our midst."
Leader said although
synagogues leaders were
given reasons why the pro-
posal was denied, they are
not valid and will be tested
in court.
During the court hearing,
former congregation presi-
dent Robert Roth said his
law firm will subpoena the
four trustees who voted
against the proposal,
synagogue leaders and
planning experts to testify.
Roth hopes the court will
settle the dispute before Jan.
21, when the synagogue's
option to purchase the West
Bloomfield site runs out. The
original deadline expired in
November but was extended
to Dec. 21 at a cost of $3,000.
The synagogue paid another
$3,000 for a second and final
30-day extension.
If this extension runs out,
Roth said he is not sure what
will happen.
In the meantime, the
synagogue is still com-
pleting plans to sell its
facility at Ten Mile and
Church roads in Oak Park
for $1.6 million to United
Jewish Charities, the prop-
erty and endowment agency
for the Jewish Welfare Fed-
eration. Roth expects to an-
nounce a closing date
soon. El

shyly took the gift

pulled out a long red whistle.
After quickly showing her

eight were sitting at a large
table, usually used for board
meetings, opening their own

Chanukah gifts and eating
cookies in the shape of a
driedel or Jewish star. Their
parents sat in nearby chairs
and smiled as they watched
the festivities.
In a mixture of Russian
and English, the children,
all Soviet emigres, thanked
the four Andover High
School students who had
delivered the gifts to the

building last week. The

group in the Bloomfield
Hills school which does
community volunteer work.
