dele Silver, longtime
director of the Jewish
Community Center
cultural arts depart-
ment and director of the
annual Jewish Book Fair,
has been released from her
position.
Ms. Silver was with the
JCC for 28 years, said Dr.
Morton Plotnick, executive
director of the JCC. He
declined to discuss the rea-
sons Ms. Silver was replaced.
He said Christine Guarino
Lewis, past director of cultur-
al arts for the JCC of
Tidewater, Va., and past
excecutive director of
Tidewater Performing Arts,
began working full time at
the West Bloomfield JCC on
Sept. 8 in place of Ms. Silver.
Ms. Silver was unavailable
for comment.
The dismissal brings to at
least four the number of
longtime department heads
released by the JCC in the
last few years. They include
Miriam Sandweis, director of
senior adult programming;
Irma Starr, branch coordina-
tor for the Jimmy Prentis
Morris JCC in Oak Park;
Sylvia Zukin, director of the
Women's Health Club; and
Ms. Silver.
Irwin Elson, president of
the JCC, denied that Ms.
Silver was released for bud-
getary reasons and support-
ed Dr. Plotnick. "Mort is

executive director and he has
been professional enough
over the years to build a
strong business. He has an
agenda and he serves the
board.
"I'm comfortable in his
ability to manage the busi-
ness," Mr. Elson said. "It's
not budgeting — we haven't
eliminated any departments.
But beyond that I really don't
want to comment."

A number of
department heads
have been released
by the JCC.

Dr. Plotnick denied that
longtime staffers are being
let go, naming building direc-
tor Peter Rosenberg, recep-
tionists Fran Sonne and
Norma Rittman among those
who have spent many years
at the JCC. "With an agency
with 400 employees, our staff
turnover is relatively low,"
Dr. Plotnick said. "It is not
inappropriate for the size of
this agency."
Dr. Plotnick declined to
discuss Ms. Silver's status,
but JCC staffers and Book
Fair chair Ethel Yollick said
Ms. Silver has been asked to
stay on for the early-
November event. ❑

decided to have the children
do a sharing program where
the material would be pre-
sented to them and then they
will be asked to share it with
someone at home. This way
everyone can succeed."
JIS representatives hope
that by asking rabbis to pro-

mote disability awareness, it
will get them thinking about
"things they haven't already
thought of, like people who
can't go to synagogue
because they can't get there,"
said Chaya Leah Tinman,
JIS marketing committee co-
chairman. ❑
