IRP 10th Anniversary

t,„
Lillian Bernstein, Irwin Shaw, Judy
Samson and Miriam Sandweiss.
As part of the celebration, with a
generous gift from Maida Portnoy
in memory of her mother Edith
Frank, an IRP founder, the Insti-
tute has produced a special com-
memorative journal chronicling
the history of IRP.
Membership in IRP is open to all
JCC members, age 55 and over,
who are retired, semi-retired, or
will soon be retired. Study groups
are based on the concept of peer
learning and topics range from
Contemporary Literature to Med-
ical Ethics to Dancing to Yiddish.
In addition, IRP offers social
events, trips, retreats, lectures, and
more. As one member stated, "IRP
came along at the right time to fill
a void, offering intellectual stimu-
lation and providing meaningful
relationships with a whole group
of new friends."

T

en years ago, a group of sev-
en recently retired individ-
uals got together and
decided that the Detroit Jewish
community needed a forum
where active, intelligent, motivat-
ed seniors could pursue continued
learning and education in an at-
mosphere of self direction. Mod-
eled after the New School of New
York, and under the guidance of
past JCC Director, Irwin Shaw,
they created the Institute for Re-
tired Professionals in 1985.
Now boasting almost 300 mem-
bers who participate in over 27 dif-
ferent study groups, the IRP will
mark its 10th Anniversary with a
gala celebration on Thursday, Oc-
tober 26, 1995 at Congregation
Beth Achim in Southfield. The
original seven members and staff
that will be honored that evening
include: Alan Kandel, Bebe Bar-
nett, Bertha Chomsky, Leon Lucas,
Hilda Lucas, Ethel Levine Krause,
