FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1991

"There are always going to
be people who are in favor
and others who are oppos-
ed," Ms. Weston said. "The
reaction varies, but I refuse
to worry about what other
people think. My parents
have always encouraged me
to live my life for myself and
not for others."
Despite some of the hard-
ships, Ms. Weston says she
hasn't experienced any
hostility from the Detroit
Jewish community.
"Naturally, I attract a cer-
tain amount of attention
when I walk into a shul,"
Ms. Weston said. "Some
might not say anything, but
they'll stare at me all the
same."
According to Ms. Weston,
there's a large black Jewish
community in Montreal and
in the Crown Heights sec-
tion of Brooklyn, N.Y.
"What attracts attention
here barely raises an
eyebrow there," Ms. Weston
said.
Rabbi Finkelman said
Kimberly has never let other
people interfere with her
decision. He said that's one
of the reasons she chose to
adopt the Hebrew name
Shifra.
Shifra was one of the
Egyptian midwives who
defied the Pharoah's edict to
drown every first-born Jew-
ish male. ❑

Ms. Weston, who spends
many shabbatot with Or-
thodox families in Oak Park,
said she studied with Rabbi
Finkelman for about four
years. While she said the
rabbi recommended a cer-
tain course of study, there is
no set program a ger, or con-
vert, follows.
"It's a very individual pro-
ecess," she said. "Rabbi
Finkelman wouldn't suggest
very much else. Everything,
all the questions, all the in-
itiative, must come from the
person interested in conver-
ting. It can take as long or as
short as the rabbis and the
person feels necessary."
Rabbi Finkelman said this
is a way to determine a per-
son's level of sincerity.
"Kimberly is a very coura-
geous young woman," Rabbi
Finkelman said. "She's
taken on a lot and at great
odds."
Ms. Weston, who lives
near the WSU campus, said
many of her friends believe
she's masochistic.
"Well, they've said I'm
crazy, that it's hard to be
Jewish and it's hard to be
black. So why would I want
to be Jewish and black?
Rabbi Finkelman said he
warned Ms. Weston that
some Jews are also racist
and might not be accepting
of her conversion.

hile the rain and
winds wreaked
havoc on much of
the community Sunday eve-
ning — uprooting trees and
downing power lines —
Mother Nature had no chill-
ing effect on the Jewish par-
ty circuit.
Although Congregation
Beth Achim in Southfield,
and West Bloomfield's Tem-
ple Israel, Temple Shir
Shalom and Congregation
Beth Abraham Hillel Moses
were unlucky enough to bear
the curse of power outages,
no bar or bat mitzvah or
wedding celebrations had
the plug pulled prematurely
at the synagogues by the
wicked weather.
Temple Shir Shalom
hosted a party Sunday
afternoon, but according to
secretary Stacy Finn, the
soiree had broken up hours
before the sky darkened.
Oak Park's Temple
Emanu-El, Temple Beth
Shalom, Young Israel of
Oak-Woods, Dovid Ben

Nuchim, West Bloomfield's
Temple Kol Ami and B'nai
Israel, Birmingham's Tem-
ple Beth El, Southfield's
Shaarey Zedek and Farm-
ington Hills' Adat Shalom
Synagogue remained in the
light, having booked no par-
ties and retaining electric-
ity.
As of Wednesday, Temple
Israel was still in the dark.
Camp Tamarack at Orton-
ville and the Maple-Drake
Jewish Community Center
day camp were not so lucky.
The Maple-Drake JCC day
camp disappointed happy
campers by closing Monday.
Power was restored late that
afternoon and swimming
and song-singing commenc-
ed Tuesday.
Both Tamarack camps,
Brighton and Ortonville,
were ,also plagued with
power loss. Brighton's elec-
tricity was restored Monday
before campers arrived.
Ortonville campers waited
longer for light. Power was
restored there on Tuesday.
However, a power generator
and refrigerated truck kept
the kids from suffering from
hunger. ❑
