T

wo new groups which
will include single
adults are being form-
ed at Adat Shalom Syn-
agogue.
One group, as yet unnam-
ed, will be strictly for single
adults —never-married,
divorced or widowed — in the
25-to-45 age category. The
other, called Chazakah
(strength), is for persons 50
and above.
"Don't call us a 'singles
group,' " said Dorothy Stor-
chan president of
Chazakah.
' "We are a seniors
group open to all seniors,
whether they are married
couples, widows or
whatever." Synagogue
membership is not required,
she said. "We want to pro-
vide access to all persons or
couples who want to
belong."
Storchan, who said she has
been "a widow for a long
time," explained that she
has gone to singles-only
senior groups "and I feel
very uncomfortable" in such
settings. "Maybe it's me, but
I feel this (Chazakah) is
better."
Storchan, a longtime
member of Adat Shalom,
said she felt badly when she
attended an intercongrega-
tional seniors dinner recent-
ly at Temple Beth El and
realized her synagogue had
no seniors group. Encourag-
ed by Barbara Cook, syn-
agogue president, Storchan
helped found Chazakah.
Rabbi Elliot Pachter of
Adat Shalom, who helped
organize Chazakah, said the
group's name is an acronym,
coming from the words
chayim (life), zikmah
(seniority), kedushah
(dedication) and hadrakhah
(leadership).
The group's first organiza-
tional meeting in December
drew a standing-room-only
crowd, Storchan said, "and
65 people attended the se-
cond meeting in January."
The group's first program
featured Klezmer music and
this week board members
were working out details of
the second program,
scheduled March 4.
"We want to do happy
things, adventurous things,"
said Storchan, who said
there are nominal member-
ship dues and a small fee to
attend the programs.
The as-yet unnamed

younger singles group, being
formed under the auspices of
Alan Yost, Adat Shalom ex-
ecutive director, will be open
to synagogue members, in-
cluding single heads of
households, Yost said.
While the target age
grouping is the 25-to-45
range, "We never exclude
anyone from our programs,"
Yost said. He said member-
ship potential is 120. A
planning meeting is to be
held in the next 30 days.
The new group is "less age-
oriented than Kesher," the
citywide Conservative Jew-
ish singles-and-married
couples organization, accor-
ding to Rabbi Pachter. He is
a liaison to Kesher from the
Conservative Rabbis of
Metropolitan Detroit, its
sponsor.
"There will be some
overlap" of programming
between the two groups, he
acknowledged, but "we feel
there is a need to have
choices. Some like coming
only to Adat Shalom, some
like the city-wide setting.
This will give them a place
for themselves."
