WHERE THE JEWISH
COMMUNITY SHOPS!

o one who knew Micky
Zuroff as a student at
Yeshivat Akiva would
have dreamed that, 17
years after his graduation, the
.Southfield day school would choose
him as Alumnus of the Year.
As he accepted a handcrafted
seder plate by Israeli artist Leona
Fine at Akiva's 39th annual dinner
April 6, Dr. Zuroff remembered the
days when he was president of his
remedial math class and owned an
exclusive seat in the principal's
office.
.
"They must have had to go all
the way through the alphabet to
find someone to accept this award,"
he joked.
Despite his protestations, several
speakers attested that Dr. Zuroff
has become a pillar of the Jewish
community since his high school

days. An endodontist in private
practice, Dr. Zuroff also provides
personal and financial support to
numerous community organiza-
tions, including his shul, Ohel
Moed-Shomrey Em unah, and
P'tach (Parents for Torah for All
Children), which provides special
education services at Orthodox day
schools.
He also helped fund the commu-
nity mikvah named in memory of
his mother, Joanne Zuroff.
Dr. Zuroff and his wife, Cheryl,
have three children, Eliana Tova,
Ami and Zahava Tzofiya.
Rabbi Nachman of Breslov
(1772-180) once wrote: "The
world is a very narrow bridge —
the most important thing is not to
be afraid."
"In recognizing Michael Zuroff,
we recognize a man who walks that
narrow bridge — and is not afraid,"
said his former Akiva classmate,
Rabbi Ranon Teller, now assistant
