Gift of Life's Mr. Beyersdorf ar-
rived at the hospital early Friday
morning. Dani's accident occurred
around 3 p.m. on Thursday. By
7:30 a.m. Saturday, she was legal-
ly brain-dead. Her heart, liver and
a kidney were saved.
"We didn't know if they would
still accept her heart (because of
the time frame)," Mr. Brenner
said. "It would have been dis-
tressing if we were told that her
heart could not be used. We all
knew it was the right thing to do."
Mr. Brenner consulted with
Rabbis Harold Loss and Paul
Yedwab of Temple Israel about
the donations. Both rabbis spent
many hours at the hospital.
Within Judaism there is de-
bate on organ donations.
Halachah, Jewish law, states an
organ can be donated to save a life
as long as life is not taken, Rabbi
Elimelech Goldberg of Young
Israel of Southfield said.
However, the rabbi said there is
debate on how to ascertain when
death occurs.
Others, including Rabbis Loss
and Yedwab, believe organ do-
nation can be a mitzvah if it saves
another life.
The Brenners said they were
relieved to know that their daugh-
ter's organs were removed with
care. When the procedure was
complete, there was no visible ev-
idence her organs had been re-
moved, her parents said.
During Dani's funeral, friends
and relatives remembered Dani's
gifted singing voice, intelligence
and her desire to make every sec-
ond count while working hard to

fulfill her dreams.
An "A" student, Dani attended
the Professional Children's
School, a high school in New York
where she studied voice, acting
and dance.
During the High Holidays,
Dani came in from New York to
serve as a junior cantor for the
children's services at Temple
Israel. She was supposed to per-
form during a temple concert this
"Dani was born with every-
thing going for her," her father
said. 'The more she achieved, the
more thirsty it made her.
"She had the ability to make
people feel good. When she
walked into a room, she could
light it up like a 5,000-watt bulb,
and she was embarrassed by that.
If she was going to shine, she
wanted to be worthy of shining."
Dani is survived by her par-
ents, Rick and Judy Brenner, her
sister, Jaime; and her grandpar-
ents, Dr. Paul and Thelma
Kerwin and Jean Brenner.

A Parent-Teacher Organiza-
tion monthly newsletter ran an
endorsement for the club, an ad-
vertisement which claimed the
group's teachings would give par-
ticipants "a knowledge of God
and Jesus Christ and a strength
of character that can keep them
from evil and make them truly
happy, useful citizens."
Ms. Sadler enlisted the help of
the JCCouncil and the American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
and also petitioned the Canton
board to disallow the club from
meeting in the building directly
after school. She said the club ex-
cluded children not raised with
religion or those not of the
Christian faith.
School board attorney Errol
Goldman said the board's deci-
sion in favor of the club, made
at its monthly meeting Dec. 19,
was in keeping with a federal
equal access law that governs re-
ligious groups seeking to utilize
public property such as schools.
The law, which specifically ap-
plies to secondary schools, was
used as a guide by the school
"The use of the facilities by re-
ligious, civic or recreational

groups has been a practice of the
district for many years," Mr.
Goldman said, adding that the
board sees the building as an
open forum for other community
"We would not inhibit (the
group's right to religious freedom)
nor encourage religion by letting
them use the facilities the same
as any other organization in the
The board placed certain re-
strictions on the club, a parent-
led group that rents a room after
school hours. The club will be
welcome as long as a teacher does
not lead sessions and partici-
pants do not attend a publicly
funded latchkey program that
follows club meetings.
Furthermore, no literature is
to be circulated to the student
body by club participants or their
parents, Mr. Goldman said.
"Distribution of a flier similar
to the one seen in the PTO
newsletter should not have hap-
pened and will not happen
again," Mr. Goldman said.
Mr. Imerman said he expects
the JCCouncil to have its re-
sponse to the board's decision
ready by early spring. ❑
