Making Many
Mitzvah Memories
I would like to thank Mikki Grossman, Hy
Safran, Janet Berman and Sarah Crane for
a truly wonderful job with Mitzvah Day
2011. It was an amazing success!
This is my sixth year as team captain on
Mitzvah Day, and every year I have made
many mitzvah memories. This year, volun-
teers and I were at Detroit Rescue Mission

theJEW1SHNEWS.c m

Ministries Christian Center. We prepared
and served meals to the homeless and less
fortunate. It was truly a heart-warming
and humbling experience.
I am very honored to be part of Mitzvah
Day and look forward to making many more
mitzvah memories in the years to come.

Wonderland last month.

Our Apologies

W

e appreciate all the time, effort
and talent the community's
young artists always put into
their submissions for the JN's annual
Chanukah art contest. Each year, we are
delighted and surprised by the wonder-
ful artwork that fills our conference room
table just before we start our judging.
In 2010, contest art submitted by all the
children made a positive statement at the
Chanukah Wonderland. This Chanukah,
the entries were arranged in the shape
of a menorah for all to enjoy publicly at
Orchard Mall in West Bloomfield. More
than 1,000 viewers admired them.

FULFILLMENT

DEPARTMENTS

After this year's event, the artwork and
other Chanukah Wonderland items were
stored in an empty storefront. When Rabbi
Shneur Silberberg of the nearby Sara and
Morris Tugman Bais Chabad Torah Center,
which sponsored the event, came to retrieve
the artwork, he discovered maintenance
staff at the mall had discarded the entries.
Silberberg and personnel at the mall
searched everywhere, but the artwork
could not be found.
Those of us at the Jewish News and Bais
Chabad Torah Center feel horrible about
the loss of the precious artwork and apol-
ogize to all the young artists.
