Phyllis Strome, executive di-
rector of Beth Achim, said the
congregation has received esti-
mates of $1,200 to $5,000 to re-
pair the bricks and mortar. The
synagogue's insurance policy has
a $1,000 deductible which the
congregation will have to pay
against any repair bill.
Ms. Strome said a synagogue
member who is a builder is re-
viewing the repair bids "and we'll
have it repaired by the High Hol-
Southfield police have no wit-
nesses or suspects in the case.
A positive result of the inci-

gentile neighbor who volunteered
to help clean up the fallen bricks. c"\

ogy to Joshua and the biblical
battle at Jericho, but no one at
Congregation Beth Achim heard
trumpets on July 10 or saw an
army march seven times around
its parking-lot wall.

The wall came a'tumbling down.
Some time between 5 and 7:30
p.m. on July 10, a vehicle hit the
brick wall separating Beth Achim
from the residences on the north
side of its parking lot.
The car or truck had either to
jump or extend beyond a cement
curb which protects the wall. The
result is a 32-foot gap where the
bricks tumbled down. Trees and
bushes on the north side of the
wall kept the bricks from falling
into the residential back yards.
