ver since Rabbi Yaakov
Chaim Perlow died during
a 1946 visit to Detroit, his
followers have made yearly
treks to his gravesite in Clinton
Township on the anniversary of his
On April 23, 500 travelers arrived
in Detroit from Israel, New York and
Toronto to pay tribute to Rabbi
Perlow, the late "Stoliner Rebbe."
"They spent Friday through
Sunday in our community joining •
with us in prayers, Shabbos meals, a
special Friday night oneg and a
Saturday night melavah malkah [end
of Shabbat get-together]," said Rabbi
Eli Mayerfeld, executive director of
Yeshiva Beth Yehudah in Southfield.
"More than 700 local individuals
also participated in the weekend, with
nearly half personally meeting with
the current Stoliner Rebbe Rabbi
Boruch Schochet from Givat Zev,
Detroit's early Stoliner followers
were affiliates of the now-defunct

"Rabbi Avraham Abba Freedman,
the late principal of the Yeshiva Beth
Yehudah, of blessed memory, always
encouraged the Yeshiva to host and
participate in all the Stoliner activities
during their many visits to Detroit.
This tradition culminated in the mag-
nificent Shabbos in April."
While most of the visitors were
hosted by area families, some of the
single, young adult men slept and ate
in the Sally Allan Alexander Beth
Jacob School for Girls building in
Oak Park, where all weekend pro-
gramming took place.
During the recent visit, Rabbi
Mayerfeld said, "The Rebbe
addressed the gathering Friday
evening and allowed for personal,
private consultations throughout the
weekend. His visit was a tremendous
uplift for the entire Orthodox Jewish
