Kosher Food Program Begins in OP With Federation Aid

For,many of the 40 senior
adults gathered in the Oak
Park Community Center, it
was their first kosher meal
"out." The occasion, on Dec.
13, was the opening day for
the senior citizen kosher
meal program funded by the
Oakland Livingston
Human Service Agency
(OLHSA).
Thanks to Title VII of the
Older Americans Act — and
supplementary funds from
the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion — the kosher meal pro-
gram was made possible to
meet the special dietary
needs of elderly persons who
keep a kosher horrie and
whose kashrut observance
has prevented their partici-
pation in other
government-funded nutri-
tion programs.
The kosher program joins
an existing OLHSA elderly
nutrition program in the
Oak Park Community Cen-
ter, 14300 Oak Park Blvd.,
near Coolidge.

Dr. Mark Kahn, chair-
man of Federation's
committee on services to
the elderly, said the pro-

gram will "bring Oak
Park area senior adults
who keep kosher out of
their isolation to join the
socialization at the nutri-
tion site and enjoy a
kosher meal at the same
time."The meals are
being prepared by Eva
Bartos in the kitchen of
Jewish Federation
Apartments under the
supervision of the Coun-
cil of Orthodox Rabbis of
Greater Detroit. Oak
Park's Department of
Parks and Recreation is
providing the transpor-
tation of meals to the site.

The purpose of the Title
WI Nutrition Program is to
provide older Americans,
particularly those with low
incomes, with low-cost, nut-
ritional meals served in
nearby centers where they
can obtain other social and
rehabilitative services.
Besides promoting better
health among senior adults
through improved nutri-
tion, such a program is
aimed at reducing the isola-
tion of old age, offering older
Americans the opportunity

The Kibbutz

The kibbutz is a unique social, cultural and eco-
nomic success in Israel. Though it is home for only
3.5 percent of the population in Israel its contribu-

impressive. Judge for yourself. Participate in a
volunteer work program, a six month work-study
program, or a combined university kibbutz pro-

Caught in the Act

The Michigan House of
Representatives was hurry-
ing towards a holiday ad-
journment last week with
presiding officer of the day
James O'Neill of Saginaw
working with Majority
Floor Leader Joseph Forbes
of Oak Park.
According to the Detroit
Free Press, after each bill
was approved Forbes would
move for immediate effect
and O'Neill would take a
quick voice vote, bang his
gavel and declare approval.
Before long, O'Neill was
going through the proce-
dure before Forbes could
make his motion. Not to be
outdone, Forbes recited a
Sabbath blessing in Hebrew
as O'Neill went through the
procedure. Down came the
gavel and the House had
adopted a Sabbath prayer.
