M eet Martin Herman, age 83,
in his own words:
"I have been associ-
ated with the Isaac Agree Downtown
Synagogue since 1989. Both of my
parents died in 1989, and by then, the
Downtown Synagogue — which at
that time still supported a daily min-
yan — was the only remaining syna-
gogue in Detroit and the only place at
which I could say Kaddish.
"I grew up in New York, not Detroit.
I came to Detroit in 1962, hav-

Monteith College, a unit within Wayne
State University funded by the Ford

component of undergraduate degrees.
"I currently live in Detroit's
University District — between Six and
Seven Mile roads, East of Livernois
— in the same house that I bought in
