simple night out with friends
would be a luxury to tens of
thousands of hurricane sur-
vivors trying to rebuild their lives.
With that in mind, about 75 members
of the Young Adult Division of the
Jewish Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit gathered at Midtown Café in
Birmingham to enjoy each other's
company and help raise money for the
Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
"Young Jews need to lead the way in
making an impact," said Jordan Glass
of West Bloomfield, a YAD officer and
one of the bar night organizers. He has
three friends who live in New Orleans
— friends he met during a young pro-
fessionals mission to Israel.
"One lost his business, another one's
home was looted:' Glass said.
YAD raised almost $1,000, which
will be added to the $218,000 that
Federation has raised locally. All of the

money will go to hurricane victims,
both Jewish and non-Jewish, for things
like food, water, temporary shelter,
medication, health care and counsel-
ing.
"I wanted to support the Jewish
community and I thought this was a
great effort:' said Aaron Scheinfield of
Troy. "A lot of people have really come
out. It shows what people are willing to
do in times of crisis:' he said.
Midtown Café provided the space
and served desserts free of charge. The
Detroit Jewish News also sponsored the
event.
Spotted in the crowd at the Sept. 22
fund-raiser were: Lori Schram of
Farmington Hills, Randall Fogelman
of Detroit, Marisa Weiner and Bubba
Urdan of West Bloomfield, Tony Fayne
and Brian Satovsky of Birmingham,
Phil Okun and Scott Kaufman of
Huntington Woods, Rachel Weber of
Troy, and Eric Goodman, Stefenie
Sasson and Marla Tapper, all of
Bloomfield Hills. ❑
