Summer Jam

Fundraising event at Beth El
features music, dancing, food
and more.


EXTGen Detroit and Temple Beth
El hosted Summer Jam on July 11 at
the Bloomfield Township synagogue.
The event benefited nonprofit organizations
Humble Design and Mitzvah Meals.
The crowd of about 120 enjoyed cocktails,
hors d'oeuvres, good company and live music
featuring Collision Six Band. The event was
coordinated by co-chairs David Colman,
Steve Craig, Ryan Fishman, Aaron Lowen,
Liz Modell, Treger Strasberg and Jordon
"A great team of Temple Beth El's young
leaders came together to make this event an
inspiring success," Fishman said. "Being part
of a synagogue is about more than just going
to services, it's about philanthropy and com-
munity, and this event speaks to the exciting
developments at Beth El"
Final tallies are not in yet, but each nonprofit
organization will receive a minimum of $1,000.
More events are planned for this winter and
next summer.

Friends of the IDF hear from former head of Israel's Shin Bet.


riends of the IDF (FIDF) Michigan
Chapter hosted an intimate brunch
with Avi Dicter, the former head of
Shabak (Shin Bet), the internal general security
service of Israel, on July 21 at Tam-O-Shanter
Country Club in West Bloomfield. Dicter gave
an overview on the current situation in Israel
and the Middle East.
"I felt like I was at home Dicter said.
"Detroit's lay leaders made an atmosphere of
family and unity, and having my local relatives
[the Gun family of West Bloomfield] with me
further empowered that feeling:"
Dicter is a former Israeli minister of public
security, minister of homefront defense and
former director of Shin Bet. He was a mem-
ber of the Knesset from 2006-2012 for the
Kadima Party, but then joined Prime Minister
Netanyahu's inner security cabinet until the
elections of 2013.
As a young member of our Jewish commu-
nity, I believe it is important we get involved
as early and often as possible," said FIDF sup-
porter William Slatkin of Birmingham. "But
equally important is that we take the time to
listen to leaders like Avi Dicter so we are edu-
cated and able to carry on the work of the cur-
rent generation and help [maintain] a stronger
Israel for tomorrow"
The event was sponsored by Sheldon Yellen
and Tam-O-Shanter.
