ast Thanksgiving, Cantor
Norman Rose heard a
miraculous sound.
A number of spiritual
leaders had joined together at
Temple Emanu-El for an inter-
faith ecumenical service. A choir
of young people joined the cele-
bration. They called themselves
City For Youth Choir.
The voices came from Wayne,
Oakland and Macomb counties.
Nearly every religion and ethnic
group was represented.
In hopes of raising funds for
the temple's own musical de-
partment, while exposing the
120-person choir to a larger au-
dience, Temple Emanu-El will
host the City For Youth Choir
May 22 in a concert open to the
community.
Formed in 1991, City For
Youth acts as a community part-
nership through the sponsorship
of WTVS Channel 56. Its goal is
to put young people in touch with
various resources available
throughout the area which may
help them succeed in school,
work and life.
The Detroit City Council pre-
sented the group with the Spirit
of Detroit Award in 1993 and de-
clared the youths "ambassadors
of goodwill."
While Cantor Rose loved the
concept behind both the choir
and the partnership, aesthetics
initially appealed to him.
"He was adamant that we
bring them to the temple, to
share these sounds with our com-
munity," said his wife, Euni Rose,
director of Temple Emanu-El's

youth choir.
The May event is the second
time the congregation has invit-
ed outside talent for its annual
concert. Last year, the Hartford
Memorial Baptist Church Choir
sang. Cantor and Mrs. Rose in-
vited the church group after de-
veloping a friendship with its
musical director.

The choir is
composed of 120
youths from three
counties.

"Traditionally, we've been very
involved with interfaith groups,"
Mrs. Rose said of Temple
Emanu-El's congregation. 'We've
worked with church groups, we
help feed the homeless, our choir
has joined the NAACP Thousand
Voice Choir. But this time, we're
really aiming to show this group
off to our community."
An afterglow will follow the
7:30 p.m. concert. Mrs. Rose
hopes individuals will take the
opportunity to speak with the
singers.
"This is a social event, a cele-
bration between our communi-
ties," she said. 'We need to make
sure people from the city feel
welcome in our place, and that
our congregation is comfortable
hosting others. It's about coming
together and just enjoying
the voices of young people
singing." 0

ori Benedek does not attend
many events within the
Jewish community. But on
the weekend before her
graduation from Michigan State
University, she is making a trip
home just to participate in the
Walk for Israel.
"The walk is a good way to
show my support for Israel and
get involved in the community,"
she said.
The 3.5-mile annual walk,
which will begin at 12:30 p.m.
May 1, consistently draws the
largest crowds of any local Jew-
ish event — between 6,000 and
