Certified Stones At
Rock Bottom Prices

Continued from Page 6

You already know that Greis Jewelers carries the
area's best selection of G.I.A. Certified Diamonds. But
did you know that our prices can't be matched?
Let our Gemological Specialists assist you in choos-
ing a diamond that suits your taste.
At the best price in town.
Stop in and see why the smart money shops at
Greis.

has twice as many
employees.)
In addition to Mery Mann-
ing, hundreds of Jews, in-
cluding my wife and I, are
employed by Ford Motor Co.
in the Detroit area. Despite
an adverse economy, Ford has
hired a number of qualified
newcomers from the former
Soviet Union.
As employees of Ford, we
have found nothing but
respect for our religious
beliefs. Time off for religious
observance is never an issue.
We have seen social events
modified so as not to conflict
with Shabbat and Christmas
parties modified so as to be
ecumenical.
On one occasion, when an
anti-Semitic comment was
scrawled on a bathroom wall,
we were overwhelmed with
the support from manage-
ment and outrage from co-
workers. Personally, we have
been impressed with Ford's
strong commitment to fair
treatment of all minorities,
and its support for the com-
munities in which it does
business.
It's nice to know that
organizations can change and
it's good to see The Jewish
News giving recognition to
that change.

Your recent series on South-
field has presented some very
important issues, which as
you pointed out, are as impor-
tant to the Jewish communi-
ty as they are to the city
itself. We appreciate your
acknowledgement of the col-
laboration between the
Jewish Community Council
and the Neighborhood Project
to establish a community
coalition which we believe
will effectively address many
of those concerns you
detailed.
On Dec. 9, the Southfield
Multicultural Task Force was
formally established by the
15 communal leaders, from
the black, Arab, Chaldean,
Jewish and Christian corn-
munities who attended our
first meeting. Our efforts
were met with tremendous
enthusiasm and support.
Each representative ex-
pressed his commitment to
make Southfield a communi-
ty that stands and works
together. All believe strongly
in the need for this task force
and were honored to be ask-
ed to take part in its
development.

We are truly heartened by
this positive response and
look forward to benefiting
from the unique strength that
Southfield's diverse popula-
tion offers the city. Our goal
is to capture this spirit of ex-
citement and cooperation and
use it to work together with
the city and the schools to
secure a bright future for our
shared community of South-
field.

Protecting Israel
In Atomic Market

The oil-rich countries in the
Middle East, especially Iraq
and Libya, would be willing to
pay any price to obtain atomic
weapons. If they ever succeed
in acquiring those weapons,
they would use them without
hesitation against the State
of Israel.
Unfortunately, Israel has
no assurances that, in
economic desperation, one or
more of the newly created
eastern European states will
not market their atomic
weapons to such irresponsible
Arab states as Syria, Iraq or
Libya.
In order to assure that the
former Soviet atomic weapons
will not be marketed, any
economic assistance to the
newly created states in
eastern Europe should be con-
ditioned upon the complete
destruction of their atomic
weapon stockpiles.

Tales Of Black,
Jewish Integration

We are very pleased with
the Mt. Airy article ("Tales of
Five Cities" Dec. 20). Kimber-
ly Lifton did a lot of inter-
viewing and succinctly sum-
marized what she learned.
We only hope the sequel,
five to 10 years away, shows
us all still "hangin' in."
