SPEECHES

we wave first, but there is no
neighborly chit-chat." Hoc-
kenburg says that, come
warmer weather, they may
plan a backyard barbecue
and invite their immediate
neighbors. "I don't sense any
hostility, and it may be that
the cold weather is a factor
right now."
Mikhail was among the
first six residents to move in
when Kadimah opened. He
says, "When I first came to
Kadimah my Jewishness was
not all that important to me.
But since I've been here it
has become more and more
important. I read the books
now and follow the prayers."
Other residents are com-
fortable with the fact that it
is a Jewish home, but at least
one resident says she can
take it or leave it. Jill, viv-
acious and bubbly on this
day, with an impish sense of
humor, says, "I'm glad I'm
Jewish because it got me into
Kadimah. I like the nanie,
`Kadimah,' and I like it be-
cause everyone is so nice."
But, she admits, she turns up
her nose at most kosher food.
"I eat it most of the time,"
she says, "but I'd rather be
cooking it than eating it."
On weekdays the residents
all have outside activities
that take them away from
Kadimah. Some have part-
time jobs and some go to
SOLEC — Suburban Oakland
Life Enrichment. Center —
for skills training.
Kadimah's own van trans-
ports the residents when they
need or want to go some-
where. Several of the resi-
dents, who range in age from
20 to 40, have their own cars
at home but are not permit-
ted to keep them at
Kadimah.
Hockenburg says several of
them go to their parents'
homes on weekends but can-
not stay overnight. "This is
home," she says, "and they
have to realize that coming
in."
To further establish the
feeling of "home," Kadimah
asks the new residents not to
visit families or friends for
the first month. "Most of
them don't mind," Hocken-
burg says. "They understand
what we're trying to do —
and we do become like family
here. It's exciting because the
residents see' themselves as
part of the program in its in-
fancy and they're growing
with it. They're really proud
of Kadimah."
Hockenburg estimates the
average length of stay for
residents will be about 18
months. The Kadimah project
is looking for another home
to open by the end of this
year. Future plans are to
build an apartment house so
that group home residents —
including those at Kadimah
— can move on to semi-
independent living. ❑

THE WRITE WORD

If you find the right gift a chore
And written words don't flow for you,
Let the "write words" from my pen pour,
To make a portrait fresh and new.
A character sketch I will create,
To mark whatever you celebrate.
So let my "Write Words" speak for you,
And convey portraits, Oh so true!
