New Home for Aged Facility to Be Known as Borman Hall

A second Home for the Aged will be built on Seven Mile Road and
Sunderland and will be known as the Borman Hall in honor of Abraham
and Tom Borman, who gave $250,000 towards the estimated cost of
$2,500,000 for the new building, it was announced this week by Edward
Fleischman, president of the Home, in behalf of its board of directors.

new building.
The new facility, a member agency of the Jewish Welfare Federation,
will accommodate 188 residents and will increase the number of older
adults receiving residential care under auspices of the Jewish community
to 488.
Fleischman said that the naming of the new building in honor of
the Bormans takes into account their distinguished record for community
service in addition to their generous gift towards the new building.
The second facility of the Jewish Home for Aged was designed by
Albert Kahn Associated Architects and Engineers to blend into a resi-
dential area which surrounds its 7 3/4 acre site. It is a three-element facility
consisting of a major residence portion, and a one-story administrative
wing.

Hillel Book Asks New Approach to Youth Training

The case for a new approach to
Jewish education that can close
the gap between the low level
of pre-college religious notions
and the intellectual standards of
university life is set forth in a
new book by Dr. Alfred Jospe,
program director of the Bnai
Brith Hillel Foundations.
Rabbi Jospe's theme in "Juda-
ism on the Campus," a collection
of six essays published by the
Hillel Foundations, is that the
scientific and pragmatic orienta-
tion of the university makes
meaningless the immature reli-
gious value of present-day stu-

To combat this he calls for a
broader religious education
among youth that will "Thaw out
Jewish values so that they will
not remain frozen at the Sunday
School level," accent a search for
truth rather than security, with
"critical questions" welcomed
and without "fear that inquiry
will destroy faith."
In his analysis of Jewish stu-
dent and his sense of Jewish
identity, Dr. Jospe reveals that
being Jewish is for many stu-
dents, neither a problem nor a
challenge but simply a condi-
tion of their lives, "the context
of their social location."

They have the religious so-
phistication of ten-year-olds,
with notions about God and
faith that are largely echoes of
childhood fears, the author
says.
As a result, Dr. Jospe points
out, the need for an intellectual
understanding of religious val-
ues that is compatible with uni-
versity level of thinking, is
thwarted by a quality of Jewish
education that has "not succeed-
ed in creating, in young hearts
and minds, the image of a Juda-
ism that has something meaning-
ful to contribute to their search
for spiritual dignity and moral
