Israeli flags and positive energy filled the
air as more than 1,600 members of the
Metro Detroit Jewish community partici-
pated in the eighth annual Walk for Israel
at Temple Shir Shalom in West Bloomfield
in celebration of Israel's 65th anniversary.

The long-simmering conflict involv-
ing Frankel Jewish Academy in West
Bloomfield and some parents, rabbis and
community leaders who felt the Jewish
high school is becoming less inclusive con-
tinued this summer as a legal complaint
was filed seeking to compel the board to
release information; it was later
withdrawn. Community leaders
continue working toward a com-
promise related to the school's
hiring policy for its Judaic
Studies department. The dis-
agreement remains unresolved.

Detroit's Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr
files bankruptcy on July 18. Jewish resi-
dents of Detroit react to the news with
many sharing the views of Jake Cohen, a
partner at Detroit Venture Partners, who
said, "The bankruptcy is a much-needed
chance for a fresh start!'

Temple Shir Shalom
in West Bloomfield
celebrated its silver
anniversary with
a fundraiser at the
synagogue. The syna-
gogue has grown to
950 families from its
original 30.
