Six projects that contribute
to the health, cultural and
educational well being of the
community were approved for
grants totaling $165,000 by
United Jewish Charities out
of its Max M. Fisher Jewish
Community Foundation.
First-year grants will help
establish a program to meet
the vocational needs of men-
tally ill adults; will create a
professional Jewish theater in
Detroit; and will provide sup-
port services to individuals
living in a residence for the
Jewish elderly.
Continuing grants will go
to the community's new
Reform Jewish day school; to
a program that features
weekend Jewish experiences
for high school students; and
to a family-oriented educa-
tional program.
With a $35,000 grant,
Kadima, the Association for
Jewish Residential Care and
Support Services, will
establish a program to serve
mentally ill adults whose
vocational needs have not
been met adequately. The
program is a joint effort of
Kadima, Jewish Vocational
Service and the Michigan
Rehabilitation Service. In re-
cent years, JVS has received
more than 100 requests an-
nually for such services.
The Jewish Ensemble
Theater received a start-up
grant of $30,000. An
outgrowth of recommenda-
tions by the Jewish Welfare
Federation's Commission on
Identity and Affiliation, the
theater group is one of only
10 similar professional

Jewish groups in the U.S. All
productions will be in the
DeRoy Theater of the
Maple/Drake Jewish Com-
munity Center.
A $25,000 Foundation
allocation will subvent costs
of support services for elder-
ly residents of the Fleischman
Residence who are unable to
pay full fees for such services
at the Jewish Home for Aged-

sponsored facility. This
assistance will allow
residents to "age in place" at
Fleischman rather than
transfer to local nursing
homes.
Yavneh Academy, the new
Reform Jewish day school,
received a second-year alloca-
tion of $50,000. The other
continuing grants went to
programs for teen-agers:
$10,000 jointly to Hillel Day
School and the Agency for
Jewish Education for a Shab-
baton program that features
weekend experiences with
guest personalities; and
$15,000 to the AJE for its
Family Living Room, which
combines television, text
study and inter-generational
discussion about morals and
values.
Announcement of the
grants was made by Robert H.
Naftaly, chairman of the Max
M. Fisher Jewish Communi-
ty Foundation.

Baltimore Institute
Sponsors Program

Baltimore — Applications
are now being accepted for
the 1990 Semester at the
Baltimore Institute for
Jewish Communal Service.
The Institute administers
three double master's degree
programs combining the
resources of the Baltimore
Hebrew University and either
the University of Maryland
School of Social Work & Com-
munity Planning, or Towson
State University.

Students study fields of
Jewish communal service
(social work), Jewish educa-
tion, or Jewish journalism. As
part of the program, students
intern in Jewish organiza-
tions and institutions in
Baltimore and Washington
communities.

Institute students also par-
ticipate in the Morris Lieber-
man Overseas Seminar, a
biennial educational and ex-
perimental summer study
program exploring Jewish life
in Israel and in western and
eastern Europe.
Financial aid and scholar-
ships are available through
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions (FEREP program), JWB
(Association of Jewish Com-
munity Centers), B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization Klutznik
program and through the
Baltimore Institute itself.

sion 238; or write to
