ISRAELI FESTIVAL
FOLLOWING OPEN HOUSE

s one search has
drawn to a close,
another begins at
Yeshiva Beth Yehu-

dah.
The Orthodox boys'
school has recently hired a
new executive director to
replace Rabbi E.B.
Freedman. But Rabbi
Raphael Skaist, principal
for seven years, will leave
the school at the end of the
academic year.
Rabbi Eli Mayerfeld will
begin his new career as
executive director with
Yeshiva Beth Yehudah in
July. He received his rab-
binic ordination from
Shaarei Torah of Rockland,
Suffren, N.Y., in 1992.
Rabbi Mayerfeld also
holds a Bachelor of Science
in computer engineering
from the Cooper Union for
the Advancement of
Science and Art in New
York.
"I always knew I wanted
to help the Jewish people.
But I feel it's important to
have a strong secular back-
ground, too. It helps you to
understand the outside
world," Rabbi Mayerfeld
said.
In addition to running
the day-to-day operations
of the school, Rabbi
Mayerfeld will join Rabbi
Norman Kahn in fund-rais-
ing activities.
"I think the Yeshiva
needs a young, energetic
person because of the diffi-
culty of the job, and I
believe Rabbi Mayerfeld
fits the bill well," Rabbi
Kahn said.
Gary Torgow, president
of Yeshiva Beth Yehudah's
board of directors, ex-
pressed similar confidence.
"Rabbi Mayerfeld's
unique blend of personal
warmth and professional-
ism will serve him well as
he joins with Rabbi Kahn
and our administrative
staff," Mr. Torgow said.
Although the Yeshiva
has had financial difficul-
ties in the past, all pay-
ments are now current.
Rabbi Mayerfeld looks to
the history of the school as
an exciting challenge
rather than a hindrance.
"This is an old institu-
tion. It's an important part
of Detroit and I'm looking
forward to helping make it

an integral part of the com-
munity," Rabbi Mayerfeld
said. "This really gives me
an opportunity to roll up
my sleeves."
Rabbi Skaist will be
leaving the Yeshiva about
the time Rabbi Mayerfeld
joins the staff. Rabbi
Skaist will return to his
native New York to act as
principal at Yeshiva Dov
Revel in Forest Hills.
Yeshiva Dov Revel is an
affiliate of Touro College.
Rabbi Skaist's responsibili-
ties will include nursery

through eighth-grade stu-
dents.
"It was time for us (he
and his family) to go back
to New York," Rabbi Skaist
said. "My affiliation with
Beth Yehudah is ending on
very friendly terms."
Mr. Torgow agreed, call-
ing the split "very amica-
ble."
A search for a new prin-
cipal has begun, but there
are no candidates yet. ❑
