minimize the danger to the
Soviet Jews.

The Soviet Union, under
pressure from Arab coun-
tries, has prevented direct
flights from Moscow to
Israel. Hungary briefly
discontinued flights because
of terrorist threats, but has
since promised to resume
them. Poland recently
agreed to allow direct flights
to Israel.

Tauber said getting Soviet
Jews out of the country is
the best protection from the
rising anti-Semitism,
Tauber said.
Paul Borman, Jewish
Community Council presi-
dent, said the Jewish com-
munity should do everything
it can to help those in the
Soviet Union.
"We must creative, we
must be flexible and we
must be unyielding." ❑

fter two months of
waiting, Congrega-
tion B'nai Moshe will
get its day in court.
Oakland County Circuit
Court Judge Hilda Gage will
hold a hearing at 1:30 p.m.
on April 12 to determine
whether to uphold a
township vote that would
prevent the congregation
from building in West
Bloomfield.
The scheduled court date
follows a decision by West
Bloomfield trustees to deny
plans to build a new facility
on Drake Road, south of
Maple Road. B'nai Moshe
leaders appealed to the court
in late December after trust-
ees voted against the project.
Synagogue officials hoped
to avoid a court battle. But,
after a special session in late
January, trustees voted to
let Judge Gage decide the
issue.

In the meantime, the con-
gregation purchased the 15-
acre site in West Bloomfield
in late February. It is ex-
pected to cost the synagogue
about $5.5 million to build.
On Feb. 6, the congrega-
tion finalized a deal to sell
its synagogue at the corner
of Ten Mile and Church
roads to the United Jewish
Charities for $1.6 million.
United Jewish Charities,
the property and endowment
agency for the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation, plans to sell
the former synagogue to
Yeshiva Beth Yehudah. The
school, which has a long-
term lease with all the
rights and responsibilities of
ownership and the option to
purchase the property, will
move its girls' and pre-school
program to the building in
September.
Sharlene Unger, syn-
agogue president, said the
congregation will have its
last service in the 30-year-
old building on June 23. ❑
