No Parking

Bloomfield Township says it will work with families
to assure Rosh Hashanah dinners aren't disrupted.

ROBERT A. SKLAR

W

ith Rosh Hashanah, one of the most
observed Jewish holidays, nearing, thoughts
turn to family dinners following worship
services. The dinners tend to plan themselves every
year with each family member knowing what to bring.
But if you live within a roughly six-square-mile area
of southeast Oakland County and you're hosting a
dinner, parking — not who's bringing what — should
be your top concern. The area is bounded roughly by
Cranbrook, Quarton, Wing Lake and 14 Mile roads.
The 35th Ryder Cup matches will come to Oakland
Hills Country Club on Maple, between Lahser and
Telegraph, from Sept. 14-19; no on-road parking will
be allowed on nearby neighborhood streets during
that time.
The Bloomfield Township police — with advice

from the FBI, Secret Service, Michigan State Police,
Oakland County Sheriff's Department and other
security agencies — decided to limit parking to help
assure security during the high-profile international
golf matches, which pit America's top golfers against
Europe's best.
Families will host Rosh Hashanah dinners on
Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 15-16. Shabbat din-
ners will be held on Friday, Sept. 17.
While sensitive to the High Holidays, Bloomfield
Township officials want increased security at all times
even though there have been no terrorist threats. They
also want to be fair to all concerned so they will
enforce the no-parking order evenly.
"We're trying to be sensitive," said Bloomfield
Township Supervisor Dave Payne. "There are alterna-
tives that we believe are workable. We're trying to
communicate what those are and be of assistance to
Jewish residents."

Dinner hosts are asked to have guests drive together
if possible to minimize the number of cars arriving.
Guests are urged to park in driveways. Front-lawn
parking also will be allowed except for 73 homes along
Lahser, the shuttle bus route from the Silverdome in
Pontiac to the golf course.
Payne also suggested checking the availability of a
nearby school, office or church lot from where guests
could be shuttled to your home.
The impetus is safety, from a security standpoint
and an emergency standpoint.
"The area around Oakland Hills will be congested,"
Payne said, "so we need to keep surrounding streets
open for any emergencies. We need to be able to move
essential emergency vehicles in and out of the area, to
protect not only people at the event but also those
who live nearby."
Bloomfield Township Police Captain Geoff
Gaudard advised that extra time will be needed to
