BACKGROUND: Joanne Berezin Zuroff
grew up in Tiffin, Ohio, a town of
20,000 residents one hour south of
Toledo. There were only five Jewish
families in town. Her family was active
in the synagogue located 18 miles away.
As a child and teenager, Zuroff
worked with her parents in the family
business, a clothing store. Her parents
always encouraged her to socialize with
Jewish children. She became active in
the synagogue youth group and fre-
quently went out of town for conven-
tions. "I was never home and my Jewish
identity became central to my ex-
istence," she recalls. During the sum-
mers she attended Camp Nahelu and
Camp Seagull, where she met her hus-
band, Arnold.
After she was graduated from Tiffen
Columbian High School in 1959, she at-
tended Ohio State University. Her col-
lege education was interrupted when
she married her husband, who was in-
ducted into the army after dental school
graduation.
The Zuroffs then moved to Pitt-
sburgh, where they were drawn to the
Orthodox community. "We liked the
lifestyle. We were looking for something
stable, and it was very appealing to us."
They also sent their children to a
Jewish day school.
When they returned to Detroit,
Zuroff enrolled her children in Akiva
Hebrew Day School. Her five children
attended the school. Zuroff credits Rabbi
Shaiall Zachariasch of Shomrey
Emunah with encouraging the family to
be involved in the community.
Zuroff began her volunteer work
with Alpha Omega, a dental auxiliary.
Today she is on the national board of
directors of Amit Women and active in
