How unfortunate that your article
on the Jewish War Veterans of the
United States of America-
Department of Michigan ("We. Were
There," June 6, page 12) failed to
mention Lillian Bernstein, a former
president of the Ladies Auxiliary.
She spent countless hours compiling
the incomparable Golden Book of
all Michigan men who were casual-
ties in World War II.
When it was on display in the for-
mer JWV Home in Southfield, tra-
dition called for a page to be turned
each and every day, thus assuring
that a picture of all deceased service-
men would see the light of day at
least once a year.
Surviving relatives always appreci-
ated this act of remembrance of the
act of sacrifice that their beloved
Mrs. Bernstein deserves the undy-
ing gratitude of the entire Jewish
community for her selfless devotion
to a magnificent work of historical

The Florence Melton Adult Mini-
School of Metro Detroit just saw its
first current class graduate and it
was a raging success. It touched the
lives of all who participated.
This two-year overview of Judaism
is an internationally offered course
of study, brought to our community
through Federation's Alliance for
Jewish Education and the Jewish
Community Center of Metropolitan
The Melton formula for success is
a mix of a fabulous curriculum, stel-
lar teachers and a wonderful profes-
sional staff who insure a smooth and
steady experience. The Detroit
Melton team gets all A's.
The 30-week school for adults,
which promotes pluralistic, non-
denominational Jewish learning, cre-
ates lasting friendships through its
chavrutah-style approach [one-on-
one with a study partner].
For those who have had a Jewish
education, the weekly two-hour
classes offer an enriching learning
opportunity. For those who have
had little formal Jewish education,
the mini-school is a gateway to a
Many of the 101 graduates will
continue on with their Jewish edu-
cation, through additional Melton
offerings or other Jewish classes.
Either way, the Melton school culti-
vates Jewish pride and fosters a
Mazel tov to the 92-year-old
Florence Melton; to the lay leader-

who brought Melton to our town; to
the teaching and professional staff
that made the experience remarkable
and to the graduates of the mini-
school for their dedication and com-
mitment. Yasher koach! [Go forth in

Thank you for your coverage of the
New Leaders Project graduation
("New Leaders Fetes Graduates,"
June 6, page 36).
We are pleased that the Jewish
News acknowledged the commit-
ment of these dedicated young
adults. Of course, the Jewish
Community Council could not have
successfully implemented this proj-
ect without our partnership with the
Jewish Federation of Metropolitan
The Federation not only helped
defray the cost of the New Leaders
Project, but also provided staff and
lay leadership support in the plan-
ning and facilitation of this pro-
This partnership is an example of
two agencies coming together and
working to assure a strong future for
our community through the devel-
opment of young adult leadership.
We would like to especially thank
the Community Outreach and
Education Department of the Jewish
Federation, chaired by Sharon Hart.
We look forward to future opportu-
nities to enrich our community
