Seeking Local Families
For New Soviet Emigres

Family-To-Family is recruiting local families to be matched with new Americans from the Soviet Union. Currently,
there is a list of 25 families waiting to be paired, and 30 new families are expected to arrive monthly in Detroit.

Participants can share in community, Jewish and family experiences with their matches, and maintain regular
contact by being "friends." A commitment of one year is expected.

To participate in the program, local families should attend an orientation session. The next one will be held 7
p.m., June 17, at Temple Beth El. Others will be 7:30 p.m., June 27, July 16 and 29, at the United Hebrew Schools.

Family-To-Family is co-sponsored by the Women's Division of the Jeewish Welfare Federation of Detroit and the

To be matched with a new American family or for more information about the program, contact Family-To-Family
