Eli Scherr, who works in northern
Farmington Hills, first found out about
the students' visits when he attended a
lunch-and-learn program in his building
more than two years ago.
"One of the guys I work with was
going to the luncheon and it was
upstairs in our building and I went,"
Scherr said. "I had a nice kosher meal
and talked to some nice people about
. Torah and it was a nice lunch."
Since then, he has been taking part
in luncheons and visiting with students
on Friday afternoons whenever his
"When they get here, very often I'm
on the phone or in a meeting," Scherr
said. "But once or twice a month, we
spend maybe 15-30 minutes. We talk
and sometimes we put on tefillin. They
are not pushy; they show up. If I have
the time, fine, and if not, they come
back next week."
He and others touched by the Friday
afternoon visits expressed their apprecia-
tion at a dinner held_ May 15. With
some student. participants moving on to
_study at other yeshivot and the school
year coming to a close, Scherr and oth-
ers wanted to get together, a plan that
eventually evolved into a dinner held at
the Milk & Honey of West Bloomfield
restaurant inside the Jewish Community
Center. Thirty students and 70 individ-
uals from along the afternoon routes
attended the event.
"What impresses me is that they're
giving of their own time to volunteer, to
give something back to the communi-
ty," Scherr said. "At the end of each
school term, we've had a dinner for the
young men on the route — just to say
thank you for coming."
He said he also feels the Friday after-
noon visits and learning programs help
people improve themselves as Jews.
"It's just that little marginal improve-
ment where you're striving to improve
yourself," Scherr said. -And I think
what we're trying to do as a community
is try to improve ourselves. I think the
Lubavitch program in some small way
assists us in achieving that."
