School buildings
and school programs
dominated events
in the Detroit
Jewish community.

orman Hall ceased to exist as a Jewish nursing
home. Sara's kosher deli closed its doors. Camp

Tamarack in Brighton was sold to private in-

vestors. Rabbi Daniel Polish was given a perma-
nent leave of absence by Temple Beth El.

These were all major events during the year
5755 in Jewish Detroit. They will have a con-
tinuing impact on Jewish life in 5756 as changes are made,

new buildings and programs open, new people are hired.

But if any subject was pervasive throughout the year, that

subject was Jewish education. Hillel Day School conducted an
intense self-scrutiny as it wrestled with a decision to move

to the Jewish Community Campus or stay on Middlebelt Road.
Akiva and Darchei Torah sought unsuccessfully to find new
quarters.

Temple Shir Shalom dedicated its new building and an-
nounced that it would make major changes in program for its

middle school students and adult education classes. The Agency
for Jewish Education continued to implement support pro-
grams for Jewish schools throughout the region.
