Whereas all citizens of
Israel are free to practice
their religion without fear of
reprisal or harassment; and
Whereas the peoples of
Israel and America share
ethical, moral and spiritual
values; and
Whereas Israel has opened
its doors to hundreds of
thousands of Jews from the
Soviet Union, Ethiopia and
other countries of oppres-
sion;
Now, therefore, I, John
Engler, governor of the State
of Michigan, do hereby issue
this executive declaration in
celebration of Israel's 43rd
anniversary and I call upon
the citizens of Michigan to
preserve the - historic friend-
ship of the people of Mich-
igan with their brothers and
sisters in Israel, recognize
the courage of the Israeli
people to defend their right
to live in peace and security,
and support the rescue and
resettlement of persons from
oppressed countries seeking
freedom in Israel.
We extend congratulations
to the State of Israel and join
with her people in celebra-
tion of their 43rd anniver-
sary of statehood.

important that the Jewish
community express our con-
cern in a constructive fash-
ion so that the new (Engler)
administration is aware of
the primary concerns of this
community. This can pay
huge dividends over time."
David Gad-Harf, executive
director of the Jewish Com-
munity Council of
Metropolitan Detroit, also
looks at the incident as an
opportunity. He said
possibly the governor's staff
was not "sufficiently aware
of Jewish events and con-
cerns. That doesn't mean
there is enmity or lack of
concern. We look at this as
an opportunity to get better
acquainted with the Engler
administration."
Mr. Gad-Harf said the
Council is asked- by Federa-
tion for suggestions for the
proclamation. "It's changed
each year to reflect the
year's events," he said, "but
it's fairly non-controversial.

The governor's proclama-
tion stated:
Whereas the American
people and the people of
Israel have enjoyed a long
and enduring partnership;
and
Whereas the State of Israel
is the only democracy in the
Middle.East; and

cept Jewish institutions
have risen once again. Those
concerns first arose last year
when, only after a court
fight, did B'nai Moshe win
the right to build a syn-
agogue on Drake Road.
For more than two years,
the Lubavitch Foundation
has been planning to build a
Campus of Living Judaism
on 40 acres west of the Jew-
ish Community Campus
along. Maple Road. The
foundation is expected to
present a formal proposal to -
the township planning
commission in June.
Though the foundation has
yet to present its plans, the
township has already tried
to change the zoning or-
dinances, which would make
it more difficult for the pro-
ject.
Although Rabbi Yitzchak
Kagan, foundation associate
director, expects a long
battle, he is optimistic the
campus will be built, even if
it means taking the proposal
to court.
The foundation wouldn't
be the first Jewish group to
take that route. There are 23
religious facilities in the
township, including Temple

Israel, Temple Kol Ami,
Congregation Shaarey
Zedek B'nai Israel Center,
Bais Chabad Shomrey
Emunah, Ohel Moed, and
Beth Abraham Hillel Moses.
In addition, the Jewish
Community Campus hous-
ing the Jewish Community
Center, the Holocaust
Memorial Center, Hechtman
Federation Apartments,
Fleischman Home for Aged,
a day camp and nursery
school are within township
boundaries.
Congregation Shaarey
Zedek received permission
May 6 to double the size of
the B'nai Israel building on
Walnut Lake Road and use
it as a nursery school.
Township officials gave the
proposal quick approval.
Yet, both churches and
synagogues seeking to move
into West Bloomfield have
earned township approval
only after questions about
parking, building size and
traffic were answered. Beth
Abraham Hillel Moses
waited three months in 1970
until planning commis-
sioners granted approval to
