Q: My elderly mother can
no longer make her own me-
als, but she wants to remain
in her small home. Where
can she get kosher meals?
A: Meals on Wheels is
probably your best answer.
Meals on Wheels is a kosher
food delivery program ser-
vicing primarily Jewish
homebound elderly who are
clients of Jewish Family
Service. It is sponsored and
staffed with volunteers or-
ganized by National Coun-
cil of Jewish Women of
Greater Detroit. It is profes-
sionally supervised by
Jewish Family Service.
Meals on Wheels was
founded by the NCJW in
August 1973 through the ef-
forts of Dorothy Kaufman
and Sonia Macey. Mrs.
Macey, NCJW's current
president, remembers those
early days well. "We started
off with 21 clients and 40
volunteers."
Today, 250 Meals on
Wheels volunteers service
170 clients. Each week day,
dedicated volunteers, both
men and women, arrive at
the Oak Park Jewish Fed-
eration Apartments kitchen
at 9 a.m. in order to pack the
day's meals. Then between
10:30 and noon, teams of
two, in their own cars, de-
liver the meals and visit
briefly with their clients.
Dorothy Kass spent one
day a week for five years de-
livering meals. Like many
of the volunteers, she chose
this work after retiring in
order to do "something im-
portant in my life." She
enjoyed the "job" because
"the people sincerely ap-
preciated us and - looked
forward to our visit."
Two well-balanced, fresh,
kosher meals are delivered
each day. One is cold; one
"piping hot."
Molly Schoenfeld used
Meals on Wheels twice, both
times for approximately two
months while she recuper-
ated from an injury and
then eye surgery. She spoke
positively about the food
and the delivery service.
"The food was ample, al-
ways fresh and well-
balanced. The volunteers
are dedicated! They deliv-
ered the entire winter, even
in 15 degrees below zero.
They were always prompt."

Do you have a ques-
tion about services or
activites sponsored by
Jewish communal
organizations? If so,
write to "Just Asking,"
The Jewish News,
17515 W. Nine Mile
Rd., Suite 865, South-
field, MI 48075.

A sample week's menu is
reminiscent of the meals
"Mama" used to serve. For
example, Wednesday's hot
meal includes soup (cab-
bage, chicken, or tomato-
rice), meat (tongue, Swiss
steak, brisket, stew or roast
beef), bow-tie kasha, two
slices of bread, vegetable
and canned fruit. The pro-
gram accommodates a
diabetic diet by including
less bread, foods with little
or no sugar and substitute
desserts.
Clients on low sodium
diets can also feel comforta-
ble; no salt is added to the
food.
Arlene Sukenic, Jewish
Family Service's social case
worker in charge of Meals
on Wheels, says, "Our
clients must be unable to
prepare their own meals.
Many are coming home
from the hospital or from
rehabilitation. The vast
majority are eldery and this
program keeps them from
entering a nursing home.".

Meals on Wheels
allows people the
dignity of
independent
living. For some,
it is just one part
of a community
support system
involving nurses,
therapists and
social workers.

Most of the clients live on
a 90-minute driving route
from the 10 Mile kitchen, in
their own houses or apart-
ments.
To qualify for the pro-
gram, call Mrs. Sukenic at
Jewish Family Service,
559-1500. She will come out
for a home or hospital visit
and interview to determine
the client's needs. If there
should be an emergency, the
program can begin the day
after a • call is made to
Jewish Family Service,
However, the program usu-
ally begins on the Monday
following the client's call.
The cost is $33 per week
but JFS has a sliding scale
depending on each client's
situation. Food stamps are
also accepted payment.
Often, Mrs. Sukenic will
receive calls that indicate a
client's needs are greater
than the scope of Meals on
Wheels. JFS is able to offer
a range of services, includ-
ing counseling, a
homemaker service to pre-
pare and serve meals, and

volunteers to gi-ocery shop
for a client.
Meals on Wheels allows
people the dignity of inde-
pendent living. For some, it
is just one part of a commu-
nity support system involv-
ing nurses, therapists and
social workers. With Meals
on Wheels' long term corn-
mitment, these aged people
are fortunate enough to stay
in their own homes and put
off the move to a nursing

home. For others, middle
aged and healthy, a short
stay with Meals on Wheels
helps them through the crit-
ical period after a disabling
injury or serious surges ,

Molly Schoenfeld ech
the sentiments of all Meals
on Wheels' clients when she
says, "It was a blessing. It
allowed me to be indepen-
dent and not bother any-
one."

Sharon gets contributions
for legal battle with 'Time'

NEW YORK (JTA) —
More than 1,200 people
came to hear former Israeli
Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon speak at the Hebrew
Institute of Riverdale Mon-
day night and many con-
tributed money to Sharon
for his libel suits against
Time magazine.
Sharon has filed two suits
against Time, one, a
$270,000 suit in Tel Aviv
shortly after the magazine
published its Feb. 21, 1983
issue. The other suit, for $50
million, was filed in the
New York several months
later.
Sharon has charged that
he has been damaged by
what the suit states is the
magazine's suggestion in
that issue that he had
encouraged a Lebanese
massacre of Palestinians in
West Beirut. The massacre
in the refugee camps of
Sabra and Shatila took

Ariel Sharon
place in September 1982
when Sharon was Defense
Minister.
Rabbi Avraham Weiss,
spiritual leader of the He-
brew Institute of Riverdale,
estimated that the Or-
thodox synagogue raised
"thousands of dollars" for
Sharon's legal expense fund
last night.
