SURVEY page 23

"cocoon," choosing to live, so-
cialize, shop and work with oth-
er Jews.
Wayne State University psy-
chologist Cary Lichtman served
as principal investigator for The
Jewish News Wayne State
University- Jewish Community
Council study, which was based
on 505 interviews conducted in
May from among a base of
24,000 identifiable Jewish
households in the metropolitan
Detroit area.
Dr. Lichtman believes that
"cocooning" is essential for
group preservation.
"For Jews to maintain our in-
tegrity, we have to feel that we
like being with other Jews bet-
ter than we like those on the
outside," Dr. Lichtman ob-
served. "If we didn't feel this
way, there would be no more
Jews. When it becomes a mat-
ter of indifference with whom
we associate, we're done and
there will be no more Jews."
The survey results indicate
that a "new cocoon" situated in
the West Bloomfield-Farming-
ton Hills area may now be
stronger than the one which
has encased Southfield.
