Americans say it's too fat. If
we have thin soup, the Eu-
ropeans say it's like
dishwater."
According to a 1988
survey, 67 percent of the
JFA residents were foreign-
born. But 75 percent of the
foreign-born came to the
United States before 1940.
Seventy-two percent of the
residents were female, 28
percent were male. Seventy
percent were widowed, 16
percent single, 8 percent
divorced and six percent
married.
The new Teitel building
has an ethnic flavor, with 29
recent Soviet emigres in its
149 units. During the rental
period, Mrs. Levine recalls a
Soviet family "so excited to
be able to choose between
three apartment styles."
The differences in the units
are minimal, she says, but
the family spent 11/2 hours
going from one unit to the
next, using a 10-year-old
granddaughter as
translator. Choice was not
an option in the Soviet
Union.
JFA asked for special Fed-
eration funding to hire a
part-time translator for the
new Soviet residents. The
translator explains how the
Teitel building works and
how to become involved in
other programs and the Jew-
ish community. In addition
to English classes at the ad-
jacent Morris JCC, classes
have been held inside Teitel.
Federation Apartments is
planning future, but limited,
growth. Federal funds for
subsidized housing have
dried up. The $7 million
Teitel building was compen-
sation for nearby private
apartment units removed
during the construction of
the 1-696 freeway. Even to-
day, Mrs. Naimark says,
housing managers across the
country marvel that the
government kept its promise
to Oak Park officials and
community leaders.
The planned addition to
Hechtman in West Bloom-
field will be privately fund-
ed. Much of the funds will
come from leftover monies in
the original grant from
Samuel and Lillian
Hechtman. The new units
will be for persons with too
high an income to qualify for
subsidized housing, but not
enough income to live in
West Bloomfield.
"We have a population out
there that needs this hous-
ing," Mrs. Naimark says.
"They want to be closer to
their children. They hope
their children will visit
more, but of course that isn't
always the case."

In the midst of new con-
struction, JFA is also
undergoing change. Dr.
Martin Hollander, a former
Oak Park middle school
principal who has been
assistant executive director
of JFA and administrator of
Hechtman since the building
opened, retired this month.
And Mrs. Naimark is plann-
ing to retire in January
1992.
But before she leaves, Mrs.
Naimark and the JFA board
want to address the issues of
aging in place, codifying
building and personnel poli-
cies. And if she had a wish
list, it would include more
quality-of-life programs for
the residents, more
transportation and a kosher
food subsidy.
"I want to be able , to leave
and feel that everything is
beseder, for the best," Mrs.
Naimark says.
Bertha Billet agrees. The
Prentis Federation Apart-
ments resident waited near-
ly 51/2 years for a JFA
apartment. A Holocaust
survivor who lived in Ger-
many and the Soviet Union
after World War II, Mrs.
Billet says "living here is
the second happiest event in
my life. Only coming to
America was a happier
event."

tion, numbering 51,488.

neers, 12,239 factory
