I remember visiting the late Rabbi
Noah Gamze about shul business at
the Downtown Synagogue on a bit-
terly cold winter day a few years ago.
He was there every day ("Rabbi
Gamze's Way," Jan. 31, page 33).
That day, he was wearing a heavy
overcoat. Despite the fact that the
furnace was barely working, his per-
sonality was as ever warm and cheer-
ful.
On another winter day, I drove the
rabbi to visit a Head Start class at
the Herman Gardens project in
Detroit, He was there for hours
explaining the beauty and joy of the
Chanukah holiday.
He neither asked for nor received
monetary compensation for his
efforts there. He was a special man.

Second, the Downtown Synagogue
— to my knowledge — has never
charged admission to its High
Holiday Services. Since it was
founded in the early 1930s, the syn-
agogue's High Holiday services, and
all of its functions, have been open
to the entire Jewish community and
anyone else who wished to attend,
free of charge.
This generous policy of inclusion,
a central tenet of the synagogue's
founders, was a pioneering gesture
for its time and still stands as a poli-
cy to which the synagogue remains
firmly committed.
Again, our sincere thanks for your
thoughtfulness. As the synagogue
mourns the loss of its spiritual
anchor, we are most grateful for your
kind words of comfort.

It is with gratitude that I, on behalf
of the officers and directors of the
Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue,
offer thanks for the kind and mov-
ing editorial honoring the late Rabbi
Noah Gamze that appeared on Jan.
31 ("Rabbi Gamze's Way," page 33).
The writer succinctly and skillfully
captured the essence of a remarkable
spiritual leader, one who ministered
to an atypical synagogue with com-
mitment and devotion. Thank you
for providing such a loving and
accurate portrait of our beloved
rabbi.
In the interest of accuracy, howev-
er, I would like to clarify two points.
First, the Downtown Synagogue,
for many years, conducted its High
Holiday services in the Veterans'
Memorial Building, not the
Veterans' Administration Building.
The Veterans' Memorial Building, a
10-story, marble-faced structure
built in 1951 (renovated in 1996) as
part of Detroit's then new Civic
Center, stands on the riverfront at
the foot of Woodward Avenue where
it honors veterans who died in all of
our country's wars.
Since leaving the Veterans
Memorial Building in 1992, the syn-
agogue has conducted services in
Detroit at Cobo Hall and the
Rackham Building, and in

Pen Pals Link
Youth To Israel

A very clear message came through
to me while viewing and listening to
a satellite conference beamed from
Jerusalem throughout North
America. The event took place at the
Max. M. Fisher Federation Building
in Bloomfield Township.
The focus of the message was the
return" to the land of our people,
either to live, tour or support.
Since the Palestian intifada (upris-
ing) of the last couple of years, our
"returns" have dwindled consider-
ably. Our young people, who were
being called upon to do something
greater than themselves, are now
being kept away for safety reasons.
There is a concern that the connec-
tion of the next generation to Israel
will be diminished.
All of our young people are com-
puter savvy, regularly communicat-
ing with friends via e-mail. A pen-
pal system could be put in place
between our young people and
young Israelis, with the effect of
maintaining a connection to Israel.
Organizations in which our youth
are enrolled are poised to pick up on
such a program. I make a plea that
they will adopt such a program.
