BLOOMFIELD HILLS IS A 5-SQUARE-MILE

city in the middle of much-larger

Bloomfield Township. Although Bloomfield

Hills has a comprehensive school district

including elementary, middle and high

schools, none of the school facilities are

actually located within the city itself.

The Charter Township of Bloomfield,

which was incorporated in 1827, was the

first township established in Oakland

County. Ninety-five percent of its 25 square

miles is residential.

Although the area has many Jewish

residents, Bloomfield Township's greatest

Jewish presence is found in the Max M.

Fisher Building on Telegraph Road, just

south of Maple Road, home of the Jewish

Federation of Metropolitan Detroit.

W

hen Maurice Lande's
engineering career
brought his wife Eva and their
three sons, David, Jeremie and
Jonathan, from Paris, France, to
Metro Detroit almost 20 years
ago, they were drawn to the
Bloomfield area because of its
exemplary school system.
"David, my oldest, had heard of
Andover High School and wanted
to go there," Eva Lande said.
Since then, the Landes, who
still reside in their original house,
have found many other things to
like about their neighborhood.
"It's a wonderful location. I
can scoot over to the Hadassah
office on Orchard Lake Road,
and it's easy to get to
Birmingham or Somerset for
shopping. It's also a straight ride

down Telegraph to the airport,
which is nice because we like to
travel," said Lande, who has
been to Israel three times.
"This is a diverse neighbor-
hood, and we also have a lot of
Jewish neighbors," she said. "It's
always been very safe and quiet.
We sent our youngest son to the
nursery school at Temple Beth
El, which is right at the corner of
our subdivision. It was so conven-
ient, and the public school sys-
tem has been excellent."
Today the Landes belong to
Adat Shalom Synagogue, where
she is a member of the sister-
hood. She is also an active life
member of the Eleanor Roosevelt
Group of the Greater Detroit
Chapter of Hadassah, where
Maurice was recently made an
associate.
