LISTENING
POST

- MORE LIKE AN
apartment-hotel . . . or a re-
sort . . . than a senior citi-
zens complex . . . This is
Franklin .Club Apts. on
Franklin Rd.
Companionship seems to
be a key word here . . . the
dults keenly in tune
.mong people they can
communicate with . . . This
is a prime thing for break-
fasts and dinners especially
. . . two seatings . . . and
residents assigned to the
same seats . with the
same people . . . regularly.
Most of them didn't know
each other until moving in
. . . Now they dine together,
party together and partake
with each other in the game
room or exercise room.
Open just over a year
Franklin Club Apts.
has 372 units ... one and
two bedrooms . . . all with
kitchenettes ... Many
residents like to do their
own cooking and
entertain guests ...
There's limousine and
dry cleaning service ...
daily maid service . . . and
even a beauty salon in the
building to "pretty up"
for Franklin Club's next
party ... or just dinner
that evening.
Average age is 75 ... and
head chef Bob Sleep says
that when the dining room
is filled it's nothing to serve
almost 1,000 people- in a day
. . . Guests of residents are
charged a minimal dining
fee . . . but children under
12 are free . . . Restaurant
manager and food director
is conscientious Joy Yost,
who, with Bob, are very at-
tuned to the wishes of
Franklin Club residents.
This bright concept in
senior citizen living has
many happy faces . . . things
to look forward to . . . birth-
day parties every month .. .
guest speakers like Goldie
Adler . . . lectures on finan-
cial planning . . . bridge
parties, daily exercises,
bingo, workshops, sing-a-
longs, kaluki and canasta,
movies, etc. . . .
On Tuesday, the Far-
mington Hills Senior Citi-
zens will give a disco dance
and exercise performance at

dancers and Hawaiian
menu ... July 22 will be an
art show . . . July 25, 8 p.m.,

group entertains in the din-
ing room with guitars and
piano.
What impressed me most
on a recent visit were the
smiling faces and total lack
of confinement . . . Franklin
Club Apts is a well-planned
adult community with an
excellent concept.
RECENT GAMES nith

AFTER GOING THE
bachelor route for many
years, a successful man-
ufacturer of men's hats in
New York met a girl who
struck his fancy, wooed her
and won her, tells Howard
Ball, here for a short visit
from N.Y. . . . The day after
the engagement was an-
nounced, the hat-maker
danced delightedly about
his office and said to his
partner, "Max, I've never
been so happy! I'm on Cloud
Seven and an Eighth."

"The state is not the high-

said of an ordinary state,
the value of which does not

the existence of which is
hewn out of the most sub-

Wedding Ring
on Forefinger

The ring is placed on
the forefinger of the bride
during a Jewish wedding
ceremony.
One reason offered for
this practice is that the
forefinger is the finger used
to point to something of sig-
nificance. The ring, of
course, is an object which
signifies the marriage bond
of the two mates.

the desire that the Lord is
One and His name is One

"Admittedly,
achievement of this sublime

special party on the first
Friday night after the birth
of a son.
This custom is explicitly
mentioned in the gloss of
Rabbi Moshe Isserles
(Yoreh De'ah 265). One exp-
lanation for this party is
that it is a means of giving
thanks that the child over-
came the dangers as-
sociated with birth and is
alive and well (see Rabenu
Tam-Baba Kama- , Ch.
M'rubah).
Another reason offered is
that this is the first Sabbath
experienced by the child
and thus could be regarded
as the first religious experi-
ence of his life. This party is
sometimes referred to as
"Shalom Zachar," i.e., a sa-
lute of peace and well being
to the newborn son.
