FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1990

ongregation Beth
Achim will vote Nov.
1 on whether to con-
tinue merger discussions
with Congregation B'nai
David.
The Beth Achim board
voted several weeks ago, by
a narrow margin, not to halt
the discussions and a letter
was sent to the congregation
announcing the advisory
vote at the synagogue's
semi-annual meeting Nov. 1.
"The talks are very
preliminary," said Beth
Achim Rabbi Martin Ber-
man. His synagogue presi-
dent, Abe Gamer, said,
"We've reached a point
where we are either going to
continue seriously or we're
not."
If the two Southfield syn-
agogues merge, -a central
point would be the location
of the new congregation.
B'nai David has sold its
Southfield Road building to
the City of Southfield. B'nai
David must vacate the
building by March 1994, ac-
cording to B'nai David pres-
ident Alex Blumenberg.
A group of . B'nai David
members have purchased a
nine-acre site on Maple Road
east of Haggerty in West
Bloomfield. Mr. Blumenberg
declined to speculate
whether a merged Beth
Achim-B'nai David would

use the Beth Achim building
on 12 Mile Road or move to
West Bloomfield.
"The land is still there,
and we've had our first
topographical study (of the
land)," he said. "But the
B'nai David board is also au-
thorized to study any merger
possibilities."
B'nai David and Beth
Achim are among the more
traditional Conservative
synagogues in the Detroit
area. B'nai David calls itself
a traditional congrega-
tion, rather than Conser-
vative, in The Jewish News
synagogue listings. At one
time, the congregation was
said to be the largest mem-
ber of the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations of
America. B'nai David left
the UOJCA three years ago.
Beth Achim has retained a
traditional stance under
Rabbi Emeritus Milton Arm
and now Rabbi Berman. The
congregation has 525 mem-
bers, down from a peak
membership of 750 members
5-10 years ago, Mr. Gamer
estimates. B'nai David has
375 members.

Also on Nov. 1, Congrega-
tions Shaarey Zedek and
B'nai Israel of West Bloom-
field will vote on merging.
Shaarey Zedek plans to use
B'nai Israel's Walnut Lake
Road facility for its Beth
Hayeled nursery school pro-
gram if the two congrega-
tions approve the merger. ❑

And they are looking for
Fern. .
These are two characters

Any Other Name, a comedy
by Israel Horovitz set in

story of how a boy preparing
for his bar mitzvah deals
with his family's attempts to
assimilate.
"It is a warm family corn-
edy where trivia tangles
with more serious problems
and sometimes we're not-

sure which is which," says
Evelyn Orbach, artistic di-
rector for JET.
"There are not too many
kids who are professional
actors in this age group,"
she says. "The others I'll
