A rainy Sunday morning
couldn't dampen the spirits of
some 250 well-wishers and
government officials who
turned out for the laying of a
cornerstone at Phase IV of
the Jewish Federation Apart-
ments in Oak Park.
The facility will be named
in memory of Harriett and
Ben Teitel, two longtime sup-
porters of services to the
Gerald S. Cook read a
memorial to the Teitels, his
aunt and uncle, saying, "Ben
would have approved of my
choice of this apartment as
the first memorial to him and
Cook added, "Perhaps some
day when the bricks and mor-
tar have outlived their
usefulness, a historian will
look upon these mementos
and derive some understan-
ding of two beautiful human
lives." For two decades the
Teitels helped her parents
operate Mendelson's Atlantic
Resort in South Haven.
Federation Apartments
placed a time capsule in the
cornerstone containing a copy
of Cook's remarks, photos and
a family history of the Teitels,
a history of JFA and a
message from Governor
James Blanchard.
From the dais, U.S. Senator
Donald Reigle said, "Without
the involvement of everyone
here,including the seniors,
this celebration would not
happen!' He then promised to
work toward strengthening
future housing opportunities
for seniors, young families
and singles.
Representative Sander
Levin praised the determina-
tion of Oak Park Mayor
Charlotte Rothstein to obtain
federal funds for the apart-
ments. Rothstein called he
celebration a "momentous oc-
casion for the Jewish com-

Harriett and Ben Teitel

munity and the City of Oak
Jack A.Robinson, speaking
on behalf of the Jewish
Welfare Federation, said "Our
commitment does not end to-
day. Our society is changing;
the 'graying of America' is ac-
celerating; the needs of
seniors are increasing, and
Federation will continue to
work to meet the communi-
ty's needs with caring, com-
passion and respect."
