OAK PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit has scheduled a community discussion on the possible closing of its Oak Park campus due to financial concerns.

The organization says in an email to members Monday that an open forum will be held Jan. 12 at the Oak Park JCC.

An oversight committee is expected to recommend shutting down operations at the Jimmy Prentis Morris Building just north of Detroit.

Early last year, an outside accounting firm reported that the JCC had been operating at an annual loss of about $1 million. The Oak Park campus was found to be operating with an annual shortfall of between $800,000 and $1 million.

The Oak Park branch is the organization’s older and smaller building. The main campus is in West Bloomfield.
