A Community-Owned
Nursing Home Needed

It seems to us that the majority of our
Jewish community believes that the
Betty and Marvin Danto Health Care
Center, located on the campus of the
Jewish Community Center in West
Bloomfield, is owned and operated by
Federation.
So many people that we speak with,
including those involved with Jewish
organizations as well as many medi-
cal professionals, believe that Danto is
"the Jewish nursing home" replacing
the closed Borman and Prentice facili-
ties which were owned and operated by
Federation.
The fact is that there is no longer a
"Jewish nursing home" Danto is a for-
profit facility owned and operated by a
private corporation, HCR Manor Care.
HCR owns approximately 500 facilities
nationwide under such names as Arden
Courts, Heartland and ManorCare.
We find it sad that our large Jewish
community does not have a Jewish
nursing home owned and operated by
Federation as do many smaller Jewish
communities.

Veteran's Story Brought
Back Memories Of Korea

I was very impressed with Bill Carroll's
article "Honoring Veterans" (Nov. 8,
page 1). I read the article with inter-
est, as I do most articles in the JN, and
found it very well written and accurate.

Mr. Carroll had to have done in-
depth research to arrive at the details
he expressed in the article. Reading
it brought me back to Korea with his
detailed descriptions of events I expe-
rienced.
I sincerely thank you for publishing
the article. Semper Fi.

Shir Tikvah Is A Very
Welcoming Congregation

Allow me to praise the beautiful series
of articles written by Karen Schultz
Tarnopol titled "Jewish And Gay" (Nov.
15, page 1). It was informative, accu-
rate and beautifully written. Thank you
for sharing the joys and difficulties of
our lives.
There was one quote that was taken
out of context that I wish to clarify. It
says that: "I would never have believed
that my congregation would be so
welcoming and come together the way
they have to support us ..." I said that,
but it was in the context of 30 years
ago, when I was a rabbinic student, I
could not have believed it then.
But today, it comes as no surprise at
all that Congregation Shir Tikvah is so
welcoming of Robert and me and our
relationship, and has come together the
way they have to celebrate our mar-
riage. In fact, 400 supportive congre-
gants came together to bless us, lift us
up and dance with us.

I am so proud of our congregation
and have the greatest faith in their lov-
ing, gracious acceptance of us and all
who would come through our doors.

Ask Attorney
Ken Gross
about...

Can you really resolve
credit card debt?

Yes - it is not a pipe dream,
but it takes planning.
Typically, credit card debts
can be resolved in the
range of 20% to 50%, depending
on the issuing bank. If you're
making the minimum payments
(and probably struggling to do
so), our goal is to resolve the
debt, inclusive of legal costs, by
using the minimum payments as
a fund to settle the debt. In the
end (approximately a year and
3-6 months) the debt is gone. At
that point, you take the minimum
payments and use them to fund
an IRA or 401(k) plan so you
have money to retire with. We
do, however, need to examine
the big picture, including tax
consequences, to determine the
best solution. Sometimes there
are more effective strategies -
and we make sure to pick the one
that yields the smartest result.
