the words, "Salaam, Shalom, Peace."
Rabbi Charles Popky of
Congregation Beth Ahm in West
Bloomfield joined church clergy in
readings of humanity, justice, free-
dom, comfort, healing and bonding.
Oakland County Sheriff Michael
Bouchard lit a candle honoring

Synagogue President James Safran
said: "At Shaarey Zedek, we are try-

"Josh would have loved this pro-

his interests, and the idea that his legacy .
would be a part of the school of public

have made him very pleased."
Said family friend Alan Levy of Ann
