Detroit's Bonds With
Your April 19th editorial applauded the
long-standing relationship between
Detroit's Jewish community and
Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.
There is a new and important addi-
tion to this wonderful history — Wayne
State University's School of Medicine
student exchange program with
Technion, launched by both institutions
Last year, the first group of Israeli
medical students came to Detroit and
continued their medical education on
the WSU campus.
Just last month a group of Wayne
State medical students traveled to Haifa
• In last week's cover story, "Portraits
Of Courage," the final two lines on page
11 were missing. The story about the
Ravensbruck exhibit at the Holocaust
Memorial Center was meant to end
with a quote from Holocaust survivor
Paula Marks-Bolton, who has spoken to
students and visitors at the Holocaust
Memorial Center in Farmington Hills.
Her comment, which urged her lis-
teners to fight bullying, should have
read, "Gauging your success in life isn't
about how much you own, but what
to receive hands-on training in the
Israeli medical system.
The students involved from each
institution have spoken glowingly
about their experiences, which some
have described as life-altering. Wayne
State expects to have 10 to 15 students a
year participate in this latest expansion
of its international student exchange.
Detroiters who have long admired and
supported Technion can be justly proud
of this newest link between that great
university and our own community.

5, page 31) told of the firm's and the
Korotkin family's $50,000 pledge to
support JARC and raise an additional
$50,000 in matching funds. The story,
however, had the wrong telephone

Yes. A Short Sale is
an ideal way to exit a
house under water.
The benefit is that
you do not spend the
next 20 years paying $300,000
for a house that is only worth
$195,000. The scuttlebutt in
the marketplace that short
sales are problematic is false.
The key is to make sure you
know the priorities. The
broker's priority is to close the
deal. Your priority is to get
the release from the lender on
any claim of a deficiency and
only then do you close. Our
role, as the attorney, is to fight
and make sure you gain the
release. Time is also ticking,
because after 12/31/12 the tax
