a fourth option year to leave the
building. It was forced to vacate
the building in May.
A 10-acre parcel of land on
Maple Road near Halsted in West
Bloomfield is being held by B'nai
David members. Last December,
the congregation voted to contin-
ue its efforts to build, but in April
voted to look for a merger partner
because of insufficient funding.
The congregation will realize
$500,000-$650,000 from the $1.6
million sale of its building. The
remaining funds offset rent pay-
ments and repairs to the build-
During the April meeting, Mr.
Bolton said, the congregation was
told it could not meet the balloon
payment due on any new mort-
gage it obtained.
"We raised $1.6 million in
pledges toward a $3 million build-
ing," Mr. Bolton said. "We could
borrow another $2 million." He
blamed the synagogue's former
leadership for an all-or-nothing
approach, while his group is
stressing building a new B'nai
David in phases.
This Sunday, the B'nai David
members will hold a general
meeting at the Maple-Drake
Jewish Community Center. But
the merger vs. building question
is not on the agenda. The only
item of business is a bylaws
change that would allow mem-
bers to vote by proxy on general
Mr. Bolton stressed that the
proxy issue does not affect votes
by the board.
As far as he's concerned, merg-
er is now a dead issue.
Past President Lawrence
Traison, who chaired B'nai
David's merger committee, said
the issue could be reconsidered
by the board if four board mem-
bers or seven congregation mem-
bers petition the president to call
a special meeting. "But he could
call the special meeting for next
Tisha B'Av," Mr. Traison said.
Mr. Traison is proposing a
meeting between the two factions,
and while the issue is being re-
solved he is asking B'nai Moshe
to allow B'nai David members to
attend upcoming High Holiday
services at no or minimal cost.
Under the proposed merger
plan, B'nai David members would
have received two years' free High
Holiday tickets, with membership
dues to begin Nov. 1, 1995.
"Knowing our members," Mr.
Traison said, 'they're not going to
stay with B'nai David in an au-
He said the congregation's
rules call for half of next year's
dues to be paid by 15 days prior
to Rosh Hashanah. "How many
are going to stay with a syna-
gogue going out of business?"
If the pro-building faction
had a plan, Mr. Traison said,
"I'd be more comfortable. But
we tried for two years to come up
with the money to build. El
