abbi Irwin Groner, 81, the internation-
ally renowned, eloquent spiritual voice at
Congregation Shaarey Zedek for a half-
century, died Sunday, Dec. 30,2012, at William
Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak after a long illness.
A funeral service was scheduled at the Southfield
synagogue Rabbi Groner so greatly loved Tuesday
afternoon, Jan. 1, with burial at Clover Hill Park
Cemetery in Birmingham.
"We are deeply saddened at the passing of Rabbi
Groner; said Rabbi Joseph H. Krakoff of Shaarey
Zedek. "He was a true giant in the rabbinical world.
He was an inspiring teacher, a magnificent preacher
and a man who truly understood the depth of the
human condition.
"Rabbi Groner approached every situation with a
smile, a sense of humor and an acute sense of caring
and concern.
"He was a wonderful mentor to me and really gave

me my start as a rabbi, kindly guiding me and gently
directing me:' Rabbi Krakoff said.
David Groner, a Wayne County Circuit Court
judge, spoke at the 75th birthday celebration for
his father held at Shaarey Zedek on Oct 29,2006.
Speaking directly to his dad, David said, "While
growing up, our family watched you treat people with
dignity, respect and kindness. We watched you help
and comfort those who were in mourning and sad-
ness.
"We watched you share in people's happiness and
joy. And, of course, we watched and listened as you
inspired so many with your eloquent sermons, deliv-
ered from this bimah.
"You instilled in us the principles that helped us
all navigate through the journey of life; you lent us
wisdom and knowledge to enrich our lives and those

or more than a quarter century, a seemingly
endless parade of lawyers and defendants has
appeared before the Honorable Susan Moiseev,
chief judge of the 46th District Court in Southfield. They've
come with civil suits, small claims cases, landlord-tenant
disputes, traffic and
parking violations, and

Will. EMU .
Moiseev also handled
felony arraignments and
preliminary exams for
the district encompass-
ing Southfield, Lathrup
Village, Beverly Hills,
Franklin and Bingham
Farms.
She first took the
District Judge Susan Moiseev
bench in 1986 (appoint-
during her 2006 campaign
ed by former Gov. James
Blanchard) and was re-
elected by voters four times. She could have run for two
more terms, but, on Dec. 28, she presided over her final
cases and hung up her robe. The senior-most sitting female
judge in Oakland County and longest-serving judge at 46th
District Court is now officially retired.
"Life's too short, and you don't know what's going to hap-
pen tomorrow:' she says. "It's been a long stretch, I think:'
Moiseev, 62, never married or had children. She grew up
in Southfield and graduated from Southfield High School,
University of Michigan and University of Detroit Law
School. Coming from a family of engineers, doctors and
pharmacists, she says she never intended to pursue a legal
career.
"I stumbled into it:' she explains. "I wasn't finding a
teaching job when I graduated from college and a friend
of mine suggested enrolling in the Institute for Paralegal
Training in Philadelphia. I completed a 14-week course.
