invites the community to

sentative on the Police and
Fire Civil Service Commis-
sion, said he didn't believe
the city had enough police to
properly supervise the area.
He also said he had little
faith in the city's ability to
secure the deck after dark.
This also worried Rabbi
Freedman, who is executive
director of Yeshivah Beth
Yehudah, the school in ques-
tion. He maintained that
Beth Yehudah was
threatened by its proximity
to the proposed parking lot.
"The deck is hidden from
the main road and provides a
real security risk for mem-
bers of the Orthodox com-
munity who need to walk
across it to get to synagogues
on Shabbat," he said.

Consequently, the city of
Southfield has agreed to
close the deck from dusk to
dawn, add lighting along
pedestrian pathways all the
way to Fairfax and
Kingshire and monitor the
area with police and safety
patrols.
Rabbi Freedman said he's
satisfied with the com-
promise, but intends to keep
a close eye on the city's
promises. He, along with Mr.
Kresch, Rabbi Kaplan and
Council President Suzanne
Goldstein, have formed a
committee for regular re-
view.
In addition, the city coun-
cil has agreed to evaluate
the parking lot's impact
after one year. ❑

T

een vandals were sur-
prised Monday eve- .
ning to find someone
home at the Sandler
household in Huntington
Woods.
Five to six 12-to-15-year-
olds were surprised by Laura
Sandler around 10 p.m.
Monday as one of the teens
kicked a hole in her screen
door in an attempt to rip

She chased a group
of teens from the
front of the house.
One kicked a hole
in the screen door.

down plastic American and
Israeli flags displayed on the
East Roycourt home's front
door.
Mrs. Sandler was in the
back of the house with her
baby at the time. Her hus-
band, Ronald, was not at
home.
"Those kids may have
thought no one was home,"
Mrs. Sandler said. Lights on
the outside of the house were
turned on, but the front was
dark.
The Sandlers had obtained
the flags at the Jan. 27 Jew-
ish community rally in sup-
port of Israel and the United
States.
Mrs. Sandler said the
startled teen-agers ran when
she opened the door and
screamed at them. She de-
scribed the youths as
"standard American teens,
with blue jeans and parkas."
Huntington Woods Detec-
tive John Morrison said the

police have no suspects in
the case. He said there have
been no similar incidents in
recent weeks in the city.
A Chaldean-owned grocery
store in the 11 Mile -
Coolidge area was sprayed
with anti-Iraqi graffitti two
weeks ago.
The Southfield office of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith has received 14
complaints of anti-Semitic or
war-related harassment
against Jewish individuals
since the Persian Gulf war
began Jan. 16.
Richard Lobenthal, Mich-
igan regional director for
ADL, said the reports repre-
sent "an astounding total.
We are quickly approaching
the total for all of last year."
The incidents reported to
ADL include bomb threats
and threatening letters,
some related to the war and
others that are anti-Semitic.
