B'nai David
Won't Build

ALAN HITSKY ASSOCIATE EDITOR

S

ome 200 members of
Congregation B'nai
David voted April 10 to
discontinue plans to build
in West Bloomfield and con-
centrate on merging with an-
other area congregation.
B'nai David last week re-
ceived a letter from a bank, of-
fering to provide up to $1.5
million toward a new building.
The congregation had sought
$2.1 million to build a 300-seat
sanctuary on Maple Road be-
tween Drake and Halsted. The
10-acre parcel is owned pri-
vately by B'nai David mem-
bers.
The April 10 vote, by a 3-2
margin, halts all efforts of the
congregation to replace their

Southfield facility. The vote to
quickly pursue merger efforts
was nearly unanimous.
B'nai David President
Lawrence Traison said the
votes made the congregation's
future "a little brighter today
than it was last Friday." He
said the bank had offered more
mortgage money than it had
previously, "but my personal
opinion is that it is not enough."
Mr. Traison hopes a merg-
er with another congregation
can be quickly arranged so that
B'nai David will not be forced
into temporary quarters in
June. The city of Southfield
purchased the building four
years ago and the B'nai David
board voted earlier this month
to vacate the facility May 31.
"This has been a very taxing
thing for our members," said
Mr. Traison, "but we will come
out of this. It is different times
and our competition is differ-
ent, and we'll have to fight a lit-
tle harder to keep the B'nai
David name going.
"It won't be the B'nai David
of old," Mr. Traison said, "but
it will be a new B'nai David."
