tuart Raider is an avid sports
fan who appreciates the pas-
sion for sports in the Jewish
So it's no surprise
the West Bloomfield
resident said he's
looking forward to
his three-year term
as president of the
Michigan Jewish
Sports Foundation.
_ _
Stuart Raider
Raider took the
reins from Jeff
Cohen in October at the Michigan
Jewish Sports Hall of Fame induction
banquet at the Jewish Community
Center in West Bloomfield.
"I'm honored to be president:' he
The foundation, founded in
1984, presents the Hank Greenberg
Memorial Golf Invitational and Hall of
Fame induction banquet each year and
is a prolific fundraiser.
The date has already been set for the
2014 Greenberg Invitational. It will be
held June 9 at Franklin Hills Country
Club in Farmington Hills.
This is Raider's third year on the
20-member foundation board, and his
first time as an officer. He was original-
ly recruited to the board by David Blatt,
the foundation's executive director.
He said he's especially excited about
his third year on the selection commit-
tee for the Hall of Fame.
As part of those duties, he had a
phone conversation this summer that
he'll never forget.
He called his friend Dan Arnold and
told him he would be inducted into the
Hall of Fame in October.
"Dan is 91. He's wanted to be in the
Hall of Fame for a long, long time
Raider said. "When I told him he'd
made it, he cried and said that made
his life complete.
"How often do you get to make a
phone call like that?"
Arnold was a standout high school
and college athlete in the late 1930s and
'40s and a star basketball player in the
U.S. Air Force during World War II.
There's another interesting story
concerning 2013 Hall of Fame induct-
ee Rick Zussman.
Raider said selection commit-
tee member Steve Rosen ran into
Zussman on a cruise last winter and
learned about Zussman's outstanding

tennis career.
He was an All-Big 10 player at the
University of Iowa and the recipient of
a Big 10 Medal of Honor for excellence
on the court and in the classroom.
Those credentials and other accom-
plishments opened the Hall of Fame
doors for Zussman.
Raider said it isn't surprising that
inductees become emotional during
their acceptance speech.
"It's a big deal to have your plaque at
Maple and Drake he said, referring to
the Hall of Fame's location at the JCC
in West Bloomfield.
Raider said he attended the first Hall
of Fame induction banquet in 1985.
The inductees were Hank Greenberg,
Bill Davidson, Benny Friedman and
Harry Newman.
"If you would have told me then
that I'd be president of the foundation
28 years later, I'd have been very sur-
prised:' he said.
Raider, 54, is a 1977 graduate of Oak
Park High School — he played foot-
ball there — and a 1981 graduate of
Michigan State University.
He's vice president of Raider Dennis
Agency in Farmington, an insurance
and retirement-planning firm.
He's also secretary and treasurer
of the Greater Detroit Chapter of
the Society of Financial Service
Professionals and a former JCC
board member, receiving the Young
Leadership Award.

Captain Cahn
Congratulations to Western Michigan
University sophomore men's tennis
star Andrew Cahn, who was named
a team co-captain for the spring dual
match season.
"It's a well-deserved honor; said
Broncos coach Dave Morin.
"Besides leading the way with his
on-court success, Andrew is a low-ego
guy and team player. He'll be a great
extension of the coaching staff. With
his work ethic and habits, he's a perfect
reflection of the things our program
holds most important"
Cahn was an All-State tennis player
at West Bloomfield High School. He
was elected Michigan's "Mr. Tennis"
for the 2011-2012 school year by the
Michigan High School Tennis Coaches
He led Western Michigan in singles
wins in his freshman season, going
