ubbies, zadies and
grandchildren will
have a joint Jewish ex-
perience next fall when the
B'nai Moshe Nursery School
opens a branch at the Jewish
Home for Aged Fleischman
Residence-Blumberg Plaza.
The school will operate
three mornings per week
with a lunch option. A total
of 15 children, age 2 and 3,
can be accommodated, and
the staff will include two
teachers and an aide.
The idea for the school
came from B'nai Moshe board
member Pearlena Bodzin.
The synagogue's rabbi, Allan
Meyerowitz, then met with
the Fleischman officials who
approved the idea.
A West Bloomfield site was
sought because the nursery
wanted to establish a
presence in West Bloomfield,
according to nursery director
Robin Sack Meyerowitz, wife
of B'nai Moshe's rabbi. The
synagogue has purchased
land on Drake Road near
Maple, but construction has

not yet started. Prior to fin-
ding the Fleischman
residence, renting a house or
space at a West Bloomfield
school or the Maple/Drake
Jewish Community Center
was investigated, but the
schools and the Center turn-
ed the nursery down.
Mrs. Meyerowitz will be the
director. She will divide her
time between the West
Bloomfield branch in the mor-
nings and Oak Park school in
the afternoons.
A teacher by trade, Mrs.
Meyerowitz has
undergraduate and graduate
degrees in education and has
taught both in public and
Jewish schools.
Rabbi Meyerowitz will take
an active part in the schools'
activities as well. He fre-
quently drops in to play with
the children and talk about
the holidays and Jewish life
and makes a point of getting
the children actively involv-
ed. "He's like another
teacher, " Mrs. Meyerowitz
said. "The children love him.
They call him Rabbi Allan."
What the rabbi also tries to
do for the children is make a

connection between the
synagogue and the nursery
school. He led a seder, wore
costumes to teach the
children about Purim and
during Chanukah involved
them in role playing. They
portrayed the Maccabees as
he recited the Chanukah
story.
When the branch opens in
the fall, Rabbi Meyerowitz
will conduct the Friday mor-
ning program. He will teach
the children and the senior
adults about the Torah por-
tion of the week, Shabbat
songs, stories and dances.
The nursery school will
meet in the Fleischman ac-
tivity and exercise rooms. The
children also will have access
to the greenhouse and,
thanks to a grant from the
Benard Maas Foundation,
there will be a playground for
the nursery children and
others who visit their grand-
parents at the residence.
Funding for the West
Bloomfield branch will come
from B'nai Moshe, individual
donors and tuition. The
school will pay a rental fee to
Fleischman.
