T

he new leaders of
several metro Detroit
Jewish singles groups
say New Year 5750 will
mean renewed efforts to
reach more of the singles
community.
Goals include joint ven-
tures with other groups to
provide a wider variety of
events, programming aimed
at getting more male par-
ticipation, and functions for
non-dancers.
The new leaders include
Sharon Stein, president of
the year-old Social Singles
organization sponsored by
the Jewish Community
Center; Bernyce Heller,
president of Temple Israel's
Singles Extension Group;
and Corky Gorchoff and
Elyse Scissors, co-chairmen
of the temple's SOLO group.
Stein, who last summer
succeeded Al Kaplan as
leader of the Social Singles,
which is aimed at singles
ages 40-55, said joint ven-
tures with the Center's
younger (25-45) singles
group are one of her goals.
Stein, a founder of Social
Singles, wants to plan joint
plays, lectures, things of
that sort where age doesn't
matter."
The pilot event will be a
,square dance Oct. 28 at the
Jimmy Prentis Morris
Building. She said the two
groups together should pull
about 60 people — twice
what each group got in un-
successful. solo efforts last
year.
Stein said a recent survey
by her group showed
members want more Friday
and Saturday night func-
tions, road trips and dances,
"and they would all like
more men to show up."
The Social Singles' new
bowling league was launch-
ed with 12 teams, but is
averaging one man per
squad, she said. The group
also is planning tennis,
volleyball and health club
nights; a dinner-dance
featuring ballroom dancing,
a hayride and a talk by a sex
therapist.
Heller, who succeeded Mel
Hirsch as Singles Extension
Group president this fall,
said the group will offer
functions for those who don't
like dances.
Activities might include
another "Day At The
Races," a trip to an area

horseracing track last
summer which drew about
80 people. Heller, who was
the group's party coor-
dinator the last 18 months,
said a "mystery bus ride"
also is being considered.
However, dances remain
the staple of the group's pro-
gramming. "We find it's the
easiest way . for people to
meet each other," she said.
SOLO, Jewish Parents
Who Happen To Be Single,
will be planning more social,
cultural and educational
events aimed at custodial
and non-custodial parents in
the Detroit community, ac-
cording to Gorchoff and
Scissors. The two succeeded
Sherrie Stern, who became
Temple Israel Sisterhood
president.
"It's a way of networking,
of getting to know one an-

ronment," said Nancy Gad-
Hart program consultant
who will be working with
Rabbi Paul Yedwab in
behalf of SOLO and also the
temple's single adult group,
JEMS, which she said is to
be reactivated.
About 60 people attended
SOLO's September event, a
panel discussion on equal
rights for divorced fathers,
Gad-Harf said.
SOLO plans both parent-
only and parent-child pro-
gramming.
Michelle Garnburd, a
member and volunteer
helper with the Center's
Single Parents Family
Group, said more of the ac-
tivities that draw men who
are in their late 30s to early
50s are needed. "The men
seem to come only to dances,
outdoor picnics, sports and
board games," she said.
Judy Weiss, the Center's
singles committee chairper-
son who is liaison to the
Center's board of directors,
said programming will con-
tinue successful events such
as dances, sports events and
lectures.
