Creating a Child's Love ofJudaism

Making an Impact on Early Education
in our Jewish Community

Developing a Sense of Community

Audrey and William Farber have a long and distinguished history of
philanthropy. Through the Audrey and William Farber Family Foundation,
the couple has made a direct, positive impact on the lives of thousands
throughout southeast Michigan.

Audrey Farber is a longtime supporter of local Jewish and philanthropic
causes, including educational and elder care entities. William Farber is the
Chairman Emeritus of Lannett Company, a manufacturer and distributor of
high quality and affordable generic medications. He is considered a pioneer
in the generic pharmaceutical industry.

The Farbers are very passionate in their ongoing efforts to promote a strong
Jewish education and thriving Jewish community.

Understanding the Need
for Affordable Jewish Education

The cost of an early childhood education can be staggering.

To help young families with busy schedules who often find it challenging to
afford a quality early childhood Jewish education for their children, Audrey
and William Farber have established a $10 million endowment to the Susan
& Rabbi Harold Loss Early Childhood Center (ECC) at Temple Israel.

Each year, the endowment will provide liberal scholarships for Temple
members. This is an incredible opportunity to help young families manage
the cost of early childhood education and is only available at Temple Israel.

Temple Israel membership and a child's involvement in the ECC will lead
to a lifetime of Jewish engagement. Not only will children develop lifelong
friendships and memories at the ECC, their families will build relationships,
become an integral part of the Temple and region's Jewish community and
grow in their Jewish identity.

These scholarships will offer tremendous opportunities for young children
and their families for generations to come.

"The Farbers share our mission and vision to provide the foundation of an
exemplary Jewish education in a safe and nurturing environment," said
Rabbi Harold Loss. "They understand the importance of making metro
Detroit the ideal place for young Jewish families to live and work.

We are extremely grateful to the Farbers for this gift, which will not
only benefit Temple members but will help enrich and grow our Jewish
community. As Temple members, we are very fortunate to have this
available to us."

Nurturing, Knowledgeable, Caring Staff
and Unparalleled Learning Opportunities

At the ECC at Temple Israel, which is a Great Start to Quality four-star
rated facility, our teachers provide a safe, caring, nurturing environment for
students and are dedicated to early childhood development.

The foundations of our preschool and fully accredited kindergarten programs
are based on the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of
each child. We provide programming on subjects including language arts,
library/computer time, reading, writing, mathematics, Judaica, Hebrew, art,
science, and social studies.
