Gift Endows Jewish Special Ed. Classes

Through a $100,000 gift
from Detroiter Norman
Shulevitz, a number of
learning impaired
youngsters will be able to
continue in a special pro-
gram in Jewish education.
Shulevitz recently pro-
vided the endowment in the
name of himself and his late
wife that will finance a
community-wide special
education program ad-
ministered by the United
Hebrew Schools. The in-
come generated by the

distributed annually to un-

The Shulevitz gift
ensures continuation of the
community-sponsored spe-

now renamed the Norman

Youngsters. The special



education program, cur-
rently located at the United
Hebrew Schools and Temple
Beth El, was funded ini-

the Jewish Community
Annually, the UJC ap- .
proves a number of founda-
tion grants to fund innova-
tive demonstration projects
(usually for two or three
years) of benefit to the
Jewish community. These
projects are outside of the
regular programming of-
fered by agencies affiliated
with the Jewish Welfare
Federation. Stanley D.
Winkelman is chairman of
the Jewish Community
"Gifts to endow special
projects, such as that
from the Shulevitz Fund,
will make it possible for
worthwhile programs to
continue once their
foundation grants can no
longer be extended," said
Winkelman. Two other
projects financed
through the foundation
will soon seek funding
from other sources to as-
sure their future. They
are the Jewish Family
Service Group Resi-
dences for Elderly Pro-
gram and the Jewish
Association for Retarded
Citizens' Semi-

The United Hebrew
Schools, under the direction
of former President Rose
Kaye and Superintendent
Rabbi Gerald A. Teller,
started a pilot special-edu-
cation program specifically
designed for students with
intellectual and emotional
impairment or multiple
handicaps during the
1978-1979 school year. This
was a response to the needs
of children in the Detroit
area with varying hand-

ing the 1980-1981 school
