Simons Archives Seeks Assistance

The Leonard N. Simons Jewish
Community Archives of the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
is beginning a new collection and
needs community assistance.
The archives is asking those in the
Detroit Jewish community who have
visited Israel or been in contact with
Israelis since the beginning of the
recent disturbances in the Middle
East to donate letters, postcards,
diaries, e-mails, or photographs
related to their experiences in or
about Israel.

The archives staff is eager to pre-
serve reactions to the current situa-
tion in Israel from members of the
local community.
• The collection, which has yet to
be named, would be preserved and
made available for research in the
Jewish Community Archives in the
Max M. Fisher Federation Building
in Bloomfield Township.
To donate materials or find out
more about the project, call Heidi
Christein, (248) 642-4260.
