spends a rather serious
amount of money on
playthings. Doesn't it make
sense to spend a fraction of
that cost on a place to
display them? This

Robin Meyerowitz, left, and Carol Rosenberg show where the nursery
will be situated at Fleischman.

Both the synagogue and the
families will benefit from
enrollment in the West
Bloomfield nursery school.
Parents of students are entitl-
ed to a family membership in
the synagogue. "We want
young families," Mrs.
Meyerowitz said about the
membership benefit.
The establishment of the
nursery at the Fleischman
Home for Aged site will
benefit the seniors as well. "It
will give the residents a bet-
ter quality to their lives," said
Fleischman administrator

`We'll have a
program, not just
art projects:


Carol Rosenberg. "It will give
them a purpose for getting up
and bolster their self-esteem.
They'll be able to say 'I gave'
rather than 'I took.' "
Not all the residents will be
involved with the nursery
school; they will be hand pick-
ed, Rosenberg said. Although
the residents have par-
ticipated in intergenerational
programming previously, this
will be the first time such a
program will take place on
The seniors will be involv-
ed daily with the children. As
the day begins, there will be
"Bubbie/Zadie time," during
which the children will have
time to play and settle in with
a little help from the senior
adults. But, according to
Rosenberg, it won't all be fun
and games. "We'll have a
meaningful program, not just
art projects." In the Shabbat
program, for example, a
grandmother may explain
what lighting the candles
means to her.
A Mitzvah Week also is be-
ing planned. To learn the
meaning of mitzvot, the
children will be assigned a

small task to do for the
benefit of a senior, such as
helping to dust a shelf or lin-
ing up shoes under a bed.
'Ib date, nearly a dozen
families have registered their
children for the nursery, some
affiliated with the synagogue
and others new to the
Mrs. Meyerowitz emphasiz-
ed that the Oak Park nursery
will remain intact. In the fall
it will grow to a full-day, five-
day-a-week operation, open to
children 18 months to five
years. A total of 25 students
in two classes are already
"We will try to be a real
Conservative school," Mrs.
Meyerowitz said. The day will
include Hebrew, daily prayers
and kosher snacks. The pro-
gram will be individualized so
that each child can progress
at his/her own pace.
Mrs. Meyerowitz also hopes
to have parenting classes and
programs of interest to
parents. Plans include joint
music and art classes with
the seniors, holiday perfor-
mances and observances.
Rosenberg hopes the pro-
gram will be the basis for
future projects. "If it proves to
be successful we'll look for
other avenues for children to
be here."
