It's not every day that you're written about in The Jewish News. Just
every week. And each day throughout the week you read about your
community, neighborhood and synagogue. You find out about money-
saving sales, new store openings, great places to eat and exciting
entertainment. You discover jobs, new homes to buy, the Amazing
Marketplace, and where to go if you're single. You learn about local
sports and Jewish life, around the world and down the street. So if you're
not subscribing, you're missing what we're all about...YOU! Worth writing
about. Worth reading about.

Frankfurter Connection:
"Ironically, exactly two weeks af-
ter Frankfurter took his seat on
the Supreme Court, Brandeis did
retire . ."
In addition, Judge Breyer

cupied in succession by Justices
Cardozo, Frankfurter, Goldberg
and Fortas. Retiring Justice
Blackmun had replaced Abe

Yeshivas Darchei Torah is de-
serving of beneficiary status and
support from the Jewish
Federaton of Metropolitan
Detroit. The case to fund the
school is compelling, while the
stated reasons for denying that
support are problematic .. .
Although limitations in fund-
ing were highlighted as the rea-

son for the lack of support to
Darchei Torah, it was clear from
the May 27 Jewish News article
that the Federation found the
whole idea of another Orthodox
day school troublesome. The con-
cept that the "Yeshiva Beth
Yehudah and Darchei Torah
compete for students" seemed to
be the strongest detractor to
Darchei Torah's chances for ben-
eficiary status.
In fact, Mr. Ziffer stated -that
"There's no question that if we
had a better Allied Jewish
Campaign, the idea of two ben-
eficiaries occupying a similar area
would remain an issue."
The Federation, in fact, has a
history of offering educational
choices to parents in our com-
munity. The United Hebrew
Schools operated out of several
locations for years. It was un-
derstood that for any number of
reasons, one family might prefer
Beth Achim, while another felt
more comfortable with the out-
look and atmosphere at Beth
Moses (now Beth Abraham Hillel
Moses), even though those insti-
tutions could not be easily cate-
gorized into markedly differing
philosophies. Certainly, the UHS
