Who Is My Favorite Older Adult?

Four persons were named
winners in the recent "My Favorite
Older Adult" essay contest
sponsored by the Jewish
Community Center, Jewish
Federation Apartments and Jewish
Home for Aged.
The winners were Debby Carp,
Dana Berlinberg, Mollie Portner
Pitzak and Jacob and Laura Bayer.
The contest was held in conjunction
with the observance of Older
Americans Month. Following are the
Carp and Pitzak entries:


Looking at him, you would
never have guessed that he was
edging toward his 90th birthday,
standing tall and straight, well-
groomed, and neatly dressed, light
blue blazer jacket, beige trousers, a

yellow sweater, etc., etc., with his
snowy white hair neatly combed.
Most intriguing was the twinkle
in his laughing eyes, a ready smile
and a smart retort in answer to
whatever direction the conversation
might develop.
At 90 he is still reaping the
harvest of a very successful
business endeavor that he prompted
and developed from a dream he
had entertained when he first
arrived here from his birthplace in
Eastern Europe, Oshmena, Litta. He
was penniless, hungry, friendless in
a new strange country.
His dogged determination led
him on from acquiring a second-
hand washing machine, and a hand-
operated wringer in a rented
basement. Then, when the need
presented itself an old treadle

Life With Papa Lou


My Papa would always be there
for me, whether I was sick, or just
wanted his company. What really
makes life with Papa Lou special is
he will do for me whatever he can
and I will do the same.
For about three years when I
was in elementary school, my Papa
would stay with me. He would arrive
at my house at seven o'clock to
keep me company, drive me to
school, and give me a big hug and
kiss goodbye ... until the next day.
As if he thought that wasn't
enough, he felt he could do more.
The time when my mom let me
wear her white sweatshirt jacket to
school, I was so excited. So excited,
I didn't remember to take it off
before I started to paint. Right when
I thought my mom was going to kill

me for getting paint all over it, I
remembered my Papa. I didn't think
he could get the paint out, but I

knew he'd make me feel better just
by taking it home with him.
As you can see, my papa gives
me many reasons to love him. I'm
sure in the future I will have many
