"There is no way we will ever
rebuild the Jewish community nor
the Southeastern Michigan region
without a vibrant city' he said. "A
vibrant city will be the only thing
that will make Detroit competitive
in the future with attracting and
retaining young talent."
For Team Justin Jacobs, sponsored
by Go Green Energy Consulting in
the Men's Division, and Team Amy
Friedman Brody, sponsored by Wedit
in the Co-ed Division, the outcome
of the day couldn't have been any
better as they emerged as the cham-
pions of the day. In the champion-
ship game, Team Amy Friedman
Brody won 9-8 against Team Beyond
Teaching. For the Men's Division,
Team Justin Jacobs won 12-4 against
Team Bernstein Law Firm.
The day was also a success for
CommunityNEXT, the LDF and for
Detroit. With $88,000 raised so far, the

Team Wedit celebrates after winning the
championship in the Co-ed Division.

goal of $100,000 is within reach as the
fundraising continues and as excite-
ment for Detroit builds within the
Jewish community. Fl

Sharing Judaism With
Intermarriage Grandkids
The new project of SPACE for
Changing Families is a support
program for Jewish grandparents
whose adult children have intermar-
ried.
Since many grandparents in this
relationship feel unsure of how or if
they can share Judaism with their
grandchildren, National Council
of Jewish Women, Greater Detroit
Section is offering Grandparents
Circle, a program that equips grand-
parents with skills and techniques,
as well as demonstrates how grand-
parents might do this in an interest-
ing and engaging way.
Each meeting will provide a sup-
portive and open-minded environ-

ment in which participants can
acknowledge their challenges and
achievements and express their
frustrations.
The facilitator is Phyllis
Levitt. The group will meet on
Tuesdays for five evening sessions
beginning Sept. 20 through Oct. 18,
from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Meetings will
be held at the NCJW/GDS office in
Southfield.
For information or to join this
supportive and understanding
community of peers, call SPACE for
Changing Families, (248) 355-9936
or email space@ncjwgds.org . Pre-
registration is required. There is no
charge for the program. Donations
are welcome.
