I

n the summer of 2001, Ben Falik was a summer intern
at the Jewish News. He was studying creative writing'
and urban affairs at Columbia University and, when I
handed him an assignment to cover Jewish volunteers work-
ing with Detroit's Motor City Blight Busters, his eyes lit up.
Not only did he do a great job on the story, but he also
became hooked as a volunteer. He split the rest of his sum-
mer vacation between working for us and working in
Detroit for Blight Busters, tearing down buildings, hauling
trash, beautifying neighborhoods. Much more glamorous
than journalism.
We kept in touch a bit. He wrote from New York City in
the aftermath of 9-11. But he really honed his connection
with Detroit. He saw himself as a bridge between volunteer
power in the suburbs and the need in the city.
With a childhood friend from Bloomfield Hills, he creat-
ed Summer in the City, a program that brought suburban
kids — many of them Jewish — into Detroit to make a
difference.
Staff Writer Sharon Luckerman looks at the program and
at this new generation of volunteers who are giving — and
getting something in return — from Detroit.
