THE AREA'S SUBSTANTIAL Jewish pres-

ence is reflected by many synagogues of

all denominations, its delis, bagel shops,

Judaica stores and kosher butchers.

The Jewish Community Center of

Metropolitan Detroit, at the corner of

Drake and Maple roads, and Temple Israel

on Walnut Lake Road are among the

Township's major employers.

Residents enjoy a variety of distinctive

amenities, such as its highly rated school

district, the recently renovated public

library, 26 lakes and 12 public parks, includ-

ing a 162-acre nature preserve with an

extensive trail network and Michigan's first

official National Urban Wildlife Sanctuary.

West Bloomfield has two separate

Eruvim. Eruv I, surrounding Bais Chabad,

encloses the square mile of Maple and 14

Dr. Mark and Miriam Goldberg enjoy a walk in their neighborhood.

AMILY SPOTLIGHT

Goldberg

W

hen Dr. Mark and
Miriam Goldberg
moved to West Bloomfield 15
years ago, they were impressed
with the number of young Jewish
families, the sidewalks and the
park-like atmosphere of their
Maple Woods North neighbor-
hood. They felt it was an ideal
environment in which to raise
their children, Joshua and Ilana,
who are now 23 and 18.
"Our children have truly
grown up here," said Miriam,
who is a dental hygienist in West
Bloomfield and a "professional
volunteer" for a number of
Jewish organizations, which
include Detroit Friends of Alyn
Hospital, the Sinai Guild and

Hadassah. "They always had
friends to play with, and they
always felt safe. It was a wonder-
ful move for us."
Miriam enjoys walking early
each morning with a group of
neighborhood friends. Mark, who
is a cardiologist in Farmington
Hills, walks in the evenings after
work.
"We love the proximity to
everything," Miriam said. "We
are within walking distance of a
number of synagogues, and we
enjoy the atmosphere during
Shabbat and the holidays."
The Goldbergs have many
Jewish affiliations within the com-
munity; including Congregation
Shaarey Zedek, Congregation
Ohel Moed of Shomrey Emunah,
Ohr Somayach, Kollel Institute
and the Jewish Genealogical
Society.

Mile roads and Orchard Lake Road and

Middlebelt. Eruv II covers an area between

Walnut Lake and 14 Mile roads and Orchard

Lake Road between Drake and Farmington

roads, connecting Ohel Mohed and Shaarey

Zedek-B'nai Israel.

FAVORITE NEIGHBORHOOD HANGOUT:

"The West Bloomfield Public Library! Everyone in our family has enjoyed using this facili-

ty from the time the kids were little, through high school and into college. There's always a

computer available. It was nice before the renovation, but now it's really wonderful."
