hunks of asphalt, appar-
ently hurled from the
schoolyard next door, near-
ly destroyed the sukkah at
Young Israel of Southfield on
Sunday.
But by Monday morning, two
congregants and a carpenter had
already straightened the bent
frame of the 16 x 16-foot struc-
ture; the sukkah was rebuilt by
Monday afternoon.
Young Israel of Southfield
Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg called
the incident "isolated," blaming
it on children who couldn't resist
the temptation to vandalize
something so "vulnerable." Con-
struction in and around the shul
resulted in the placement of the
sukkah further away from the
Lahser Road building, at the far
north end of the parking lot.
The lot is separated from the
schoolyard of Adlai Stevenson El-
ementary School by a chain-link
fence.
The rabbi discovered the dam-
age Sunday evening. He believes
it happened sometime between
1 and 7 p.m. that day, just hours
after the sukkah went up. It had
not yet been festooned with tra-
ditional holiday decorations.
• "We had an incident 12 years
ago with several cars in the park-
ing lot. Within two days, police
caught a group of young boys
who were just having fun, and
they were appropriately pun-
ished. We don't anticipate any
further problems. It's a rare in-
cident, thank God," Rabbi Gold-
berg said.
Southfield Police Chief Joseph
E. Thomas said the vandalism
was most likely the work of
neighborhood youths, much like

C

other acts of property destruction
in Southfield.
"I think it was kids playing
around. We get a lot of that now,"
he said.
Three times in the past nine
months, he said, windows have
been broken at the former B'nai
David synagogue on Southfield
Road. Suspects in at least one of
the incidents were juveniles who
were arrested and prosecuted.
The building, now owned by the
city of Southfield, is undergoing
renovations and will be used as
a new city arts center.
Martin Lowenberg, a congre-
gant who helped pound out bent
frames and reinstall the large
blue panels of the sukkah Mon-
day, remarked that it is impossi-
ble to prevent such vandalism.
'We'd like to take security pre-
cautions, but we can't be here 24
hours a day," he said. "We cer-
tainly hope we never have to wor-
ry about it again."
Congregation President Allen
Ishakis was baffled on Monday
about the incident.
"When you don't begin to know
who did it, you don't want to point
fingers. You'd like to think it
wasn't religiously motivated. I'd
like to think it was kids fooling
around."
Southfield Police Lt. Ted
Quisenberry said on Monday that
he had no information about pos-
sible suspects or even whether
the incident will be investigated.
Sukkot, a holiday that com-
memorates the Israelites' jour-
ney through the desert after
leaving Egypt, begins on Mon-
day. The Sukkah symbolizes the
temporary shelters the travelers
constructed. El

he strike at Detroit's two
major newspapers has
added to the rolls of the hun-
gry who rely on Yad Ezra
for assistance.
Since the strike began July 13
at the Detroit Free Press and De-
. troit News, the Oak Park-based
organization has provided fOod for
about 10 strikers on a monthly ba-
sis, said executive director Ellen
Goldman.

unions walked out close to three
months ago. Less than half the
staffs at both newspapers have
since returned to work.
The Jewish strikers served by
Yad Ezra are members of the
newspapers' production staffs.
They receive a meager weekly
stipend from their unions.
"They are clients for as long as
the strike is on," Ms. Goldman
said.
