Jewish Parents Institute,
Workmen's Circle join forces to educate.

wo local Jewish organiza-
tions, each with a long history
of creative programming,
announce a new partnership as they
work to provide top-notch Jewish cul-
tural education to children and adults
throughout Metro Detroit.
The Jewish Parents Institute (JPI)
and the Workmen's Circle/Arbeter
Ring (WCAR) are both located at
the Jewish Community Center of
Metropolitan Detroit, with JPI in West
Bloomfield and WCAR in Oak Park.
Each provides secular ritual oppor-
tunities such as holiday observances,
bar/bat mitzvah celebrations and
"We are very excited to be working
together:' said JPI Executive Director
Marilyn Wolfe. "We have a lot to con-
tribute to each other and a lot to learn
from one another. I can't wait for the
opportunities I know will come with
this new and exciting partnership."
WCAR families now will participate
in the JPI Sunday school program,
which has been educating children for
more than 64 years. WCAR will con-
tinue to run its adult ed and cultural
programming, which will be open to
JPI families. WCAR also offers Yiddish

language classes for adults, a Yiddish
chorus and adult-focused monthly
Both groups provide secular High
Holiday observances and, this year,
each group's services are open to the
other. JPI offers cultural holiday ser-
vices suitable for children that are free
and open to the public. WCAR, where
services are also free and open to the
public, hosts secular holiday obser-
vances that welcome families, but are
more adult-oriented. In October, the
JPI will open its sukkah at the JCC to
WCAR families.
"The boards of both JPI and WCAR
consider this partnership a celebra-
tion of our individual strengths,
but also an opportunity to go from
strength to strength. We will retain
our individuality as organizations
with rich histories and will benefit
from one another:" said Daniella
Mechnikov, Workmen's Circle Program
