asks...

Why did the FINES tell the KLEINS, who told the KENTS,
who live near the FRIDSONS, who go out with the
FELDMANS, who saw the HIRSCHS; that mentioned a
little something to the other FELDMANS to go to
CAPITAL MORTGAGE FUNDING?

Because they're smart, that's why!

(Not to mention, they're a great group of people.)

When you need a mortgage, you need CAPITAL!

Humanists To Build
International Center

RUTH LITTIVIANN STAFF WRITER

M

embers of the Birm-
ingham Temple and
affiliated organiza-
tions last month broke
ground for a building they be-
lieve will help propel Human-
istic Judaism into the 21st
century.
Pivnick Center for Human-
istic Judaism will function as
the headquarters for the Inter-
national Institute for Secular
Humanistic Judaism, which of-
fers a rabbinic program and
classes for Humanistic ceremo-
nialists, staff and educators.
Richard Sherman, one of four
Humanistic rabbinic candi-
dates, says the center is vital.
"We haven't had a venue for
training our leadership and this
is it," he said. "I'm not suggest-
ing that currently it's compa-
rable to the Jewish Theological
Seminary or Hebrew Union
College, but it's going to grow
into something equivalent."
Helen Forman, executive di-
rector of the temple, said, "The
center had been a dream for
about five years."
It came to fruition when Ben-
jamin and Lorraine Pivnick,
long time supporters of Hu-
manistic Judaism, made a do-
nation that was later matched
by others. The building fund to-
tals $500,000. The annual op-
erations fund equals $18,000.
"The building was financed
entirely through private dona-
tions," Ms. Forman said. "It will
be debt free and will not in any
way be a burden on Birming-
ham Temple members."
The 5,800-foot, two-story cen-
ter, which will be attached to

the existing structure on 12
Mile Road in Farmington Hills,
was designed as a "seamless ex-
pansion," said architect Irving
Tobocman.
The addition also will serve
as headquarters for the Society
of Humanistic Judaism, which
includes 21 Humanistic Jewish
communities in the United
States and Canada.
Said Rabbi Sherwin Wine,
"The Center provides a physi-
cal home for Humanistic Ju-
daism...(It) gives us tangible
grounding and a greater abili-
ty to support individual com-
munities."

"We haven't had a
venue for our
leadership."

Richard Sherman

The Birmingham Temple
plans to hold youth and adult
education classes, as well as
youth group events, in the
Pivnick Center. For many
years, the congregation con-
ducted school at West Hills
Middle School. Most recently,
classes were held at Roeper.
With the Pivnick Center,
temple school administrators
say they won't have to worry
about rent increases and oth-
er dilemmas that arise when in-
stitutions do not have a place to
call their own. Elder hostel
meetings and the temple library
will be on the premises, as
well.



New Hillel Positions
Stress Forward Move

LESLEY PEARL STAFF WRITER

I

n keeping up with a highly
competitive educational mar-
ket, Hillel Day School has fo-
cused on its own
specialization.
Following the resignation of
executive director Robert Stein-
berg in May, Hillel began a
search for a replacement who
would handle both administra-
tive duties and fundraising.
Midge Stulberg and Scott
Cranis have filled the position.
The duties of executive di-
rector have been divided into
two full-time positions — ad-

ministrative director, Mr. Cra-
nis, and development director,
Ms. Stulberg.
Ms. Stulberg has worked as
development director for
Barnard College and Fordham
University and as the vice-pres-
ident of development and pub-
lic relations for Cranbrook
Educational Community.
Mr. Cranis was employed by
Shearson Lehman Brothers, fo-
cusing on portfolio management
and special projects.
"Essentially, be taking all
the dollars Midge raises, plus
