A visitor to Nazi Headquarters in
Munich in the winter of 1922 would
have immediately observed a large
table covered with copies of the
German edition of The International
Jew by Henry Ford and a framed
photograph of the industrialist-
author hanging on Adolph Hitler's
wall. In Henry Ford and the Jews,
author Neil Baldwin reveals the
complex tale of how "Heinrich" Ford
promoted a virulent brand of anti-
semitism, disseminating his point of
view through a privately published
newspaper,The Dearborn
Independent - and how the
American Jewish community
responded with alarm and courage."

Heilveil said Temple Beth Emeth
offers a sense of community and
acceptance. "I think there's a warmth
and vitality there that many people
are looking for.
"People who are joining aren't
asked to fit into a specific mold," she
said. "As a congregation, we're open
and receptive to new ideas and we try
lots of experiments at services and .in
religious schools and programs in the
congregation. I think you sometimes
don't get that when you go into a new
Heilveil points to the temple's
Caring Community program, which
provides everything from meals to
hospital visits to drivers.
"We are an eclectic congregation,
open to tradition as well as new
ideas," said Rabbi Robert D. Levy,
who has been with Temple_ Beth
Emeth since 1984.
The patterns of practice and belief
at Temple Beth Emeth are very broad,
the rabbi said, and a number of inter-
married families are part of the con-
"We just try to make people who
come to our synagogue feel welcome
without labeling them," he said.
Over his time with the temple,
Rabbi Levy said he has seen changes .
not only in the building and pro-
grams, but also within the congrega-
"Our congregation has slowly
moved, over the course of 36 years,
from being as many congregations are
when they start out — a group of
people gathered to express a common
view of Judaism — to what is an
institution that provides leadership
for people developing their Jewish
identities," he said.
Cara Berg, 16, a senior at Ann
Arbor's Pioneer High School, is active
at Temple.Beth Emeth. She's a mem-
ber of the high school choir and last
year's president of the youth group,
AARTY (Ann Arbor Reform Temple
Youth). The temple, she says, helped
her develop leadership skills and has
made an impact on her life that she
expects to take with her after gradua-
"Beth Emeth has a very special
atmosphere," she said. "It's really a
community and you definitely feel
that within the youth group. It's
absolutely a family and a community
and a place to find support and inter-
esting people and opportunities you
just can't find in other situations."
"It's an amazing community that
will always be with me," she said.
