Volunteers Bring Light to Aged
in Nursing Homes on Hanuka

Small Hanuka gifts for the elderly residents of nursing homes
in the Detroit area are gaily wrapped by the nursing home committee
of the Jewish Family and Children's Serivce, who will distribute
them during the lianuka week. Mrs. Max Biber (left), program
chairman, is assisted by Mrs. Max Sosin (center) and Mrs. Zena
Baum of the JFCS staff. Cantor Nicholas Fenakel, committee member
who is assisting with the musical entertainment, looks on.

Mrs. Max Biber, program chair-
man of the nursing home commit-
tee of the Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service, met with Mrs. Max
Sosin, Cantor Nicholas Fenakel
and Mrs. Zena Baum of the JFCS
staff, to plan and implement a
Hanuka program for private nurs-
ing homes in metropolitan
The committee is presently re-
cruiting volunteers to visit and
entertain Jewish patients in 15
nursing homes, over a five-day
period during Hanuka.
The program at each nursing
home will include a candle-lighting
ceremony, several selcetions from
a choral group, refreshments and
a token gift.
Mrs. Max Sosin, a committee
member ,is in charge of the pro-
curement and wrapping of more
than 300 gifts. Cantor Fenakel,

member of the committee, will
advise and assist with the
musical program.
The department of services to
the aged of the JFCS, long aware
of the deep desire on the part of
infirm and aged Jews for Jewish
community contact, has embarked
on a project to fulfill this need.
The nursing :home committee is
developing a corps of volunteers
for a "Friend)), Visitor" program.

Rabbi Joshua Sperka, a nursing

home committee member who
regularly visits the nursing homes
has indicated to the department
that there are many Jews who
receive visitors infrequently, or not
at all.
The Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service invites the commun-
continuing holiday programs to
aged and infirm Jewish nursing
home patients, as well as individu-
al "fo -gotten' Jews.

Mrs. Meir Sees Change
in Jews' Tie to Israel

NEW YORK (JTA) — Mrs. Gol-
da Meir, former foreign minister
of Israel, said that the crisis and
war in , the Middle East last sum-
mer had created a "revolutionary
change in American Jewry's rela-
tionship to Israel."
In a statement prior to her re-
turn to Israel after a month here
fer Israel Bonds and other causes
Mrs. Meir said that "it has been
a source of deep satisfaction to
see during the past several weeks
that all-out support born in the
period of greatest crisis for Israel
has been adopted as a criterion and
standard for the future, and that
community leaders have no
thought of returning to the levels
of campaigning that existed before
the outbreak of the June War."
