Spreading Joy

Akiva students tap into
Detroit Jewry's generosity
to aid Israeli families.

hile in Israel for her son's
weddina0 , Shulamit Tsaidi
noticed a backyard filled with
boxes at the home of her sister. Boxes
were everywhere, all sizes, all shapes, all
empty. "What are these?" Tsaidi asked.
They were for a neighbor, her sister
explained. The man was collecting food
and clothina b to give to less-fortunate
families at Rosh Hashanah.
The items would be donated to fami-
lies at his children's school, where he
estimated that at least 50 percent of the
students were in need.
It took just seconds for Tsaidi to
make a connection. Families in need —
families at Akiva. "I thought, 'What if
we were to do somethina b like this in
our school?'" Tsaidi said.
Thus the Kol Yisrael Achim (All Jews

The Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) on Standard Federal Bank's Home Equity Lines of Credit are tied to Prime. Prime is the highest Prime Rate as published in the "Money Rates" section of The Well Street
Journal on the last publishing day of the calendar month immediately preceding the billing cycle. The margin tied to Prime varies and depends on the approved credit line amount and combined loan-to-value.

APRs disclosed above assume a combined loan-to-value of 80% or less. On February 28, 2005, Prime was 5.50% and the APR on Standard Federal Bank's Home Equity Line of Credit products varied between
4.75% and 8.50%. Prime is a variable rate; as it changes, the APR on your account will change. The maximum APR is 21%. A balloon payment will result at the end of the ten-year dram' period. The Home Equity
Lines are limited to owner-occupied, 1-4 family principal residences and are subject to no less than a second lien position on your property. You must carry insurance on the property that secures this loan. Flood
insurance required if necessary. There is a 550 annual fee after the first year unless you are a member of Credit Exclusives. Consult your tax advisor concerning the deductibility of interest. Closing costs
paid by Standard Federal Bank are limited to appraisal, title insurance, flood certification and recording fees. Any additional fees or conditions imposed by the city, state or county that the subject property
is located in will be the borrower's responsibility. The APRs are subject to change without notice. Member FDIC. ©2005 Standard Federal Bank NA.
