My brother and I went to Hebrew School and Sunday school at Beth Itzchak on Fisher and Mack in the late '40s. We took the Mack streetcar.

The few Jews on the east side of Detroit at that time made a major effort to maintain their Jewish identity and to support that very small congregation.

Our family lived on Mack avenue, at the corner of Townsend, above our clothing store. Exact dating is beyond me at this time - but the store was open at least from 1933 when I was born and into the 1950's when I went off to school. My grandfather, Samual Zeff and my father, Robert Zeff ran the store with the help of their wives.
Both men were members of Beth Itzchak.
