The Music Lady
n our continuing effort to tap
into Detroit's growing Russian
Jewish community, we look in
this issue at how young Russian
immigrants unwind after a long week of
work. One way is to follow the music
— techno and Eastern European
favorites — capably supplied by DJ
Jenny La Femme.
This young Russian immigrant's
dance parties allow other young
Russians a comfortable place to be
themselves and enjoy music that recalls
their heritage in a modern way. For a
look at their world, turn to page 64.
The JNwelcomes your ideas about
Jewish Detroiters with Russian roots —
of any age. Please contact me or Senior
Copy Editor David Sachs with your ideas.
