man;" said Alan Gorosh. "He may be
100, but he thinks of himself as a
much younger person."
Several honors have been bestowed
on Spielberg during the past 20 years.
He received the "Eight Over 80"
award from the Jewish Apartments
and Services (JAS), for senior citizens
who have made outstanding contribu-
dons to the community.
Friends of the Israel Defense Forces
honored him for his tireless work
when he went door-to-door to gain
support to found its Michigan
Chapter. Spielberg received an hon-
orary master's of apothecary science
from Wayne State University in
Detroit in 1999, on the 75th
anniversary of his graduation in
1924.
The honor of which Spielberg is
most proud is his induction into the
Michigan Jewish Sports Hall of Fame
in the D. Dan and Betty Kahn
Building of the West Bloomfield
JCC.
Spielberg has_ been a longtime vol-
unteer for Meals on Wheels, a pro-
gram of Jewish Family Service, which
delivers kosher meals to homebound
Jewish people within the community.
"I remember Julius carrying pack-
ages up two flights of stairs to clients
who were 20 years younger than he
was," said Eric Billis of West
Bloomfield, a neighbor and fellow
volunteer.
"In some small way, I wanted to
help humanity," said Spielberg. "Some
people only talk about it; I did it."
"I'm so lucky to have such an amaz-
ing great-grandfather," said Hilary
Gorosh, 14, of West Bloomfield. "He
teaches me so many life lesson's that
I'll always remember.
"I want to bring my zayde [grandfa-
ther] to school for show-and-tell when
we have our 100th day of school cele-
bration," said 6-year-old Rachel
Gorosh, Hilary's sister. Their other sis-
ter is Jamie Gorosh, 12.
Spielberg still gets together with his
longtime Monday-night poker groups.
The general consensus is that he gives
the other players, most many years his
junior, a literal run for their money.
"He wins more often than he loses,"
said fellow player Jerry Rosenthal of
West Bloomfield. "Julius is a pretty
good poker player.
"When I was younger, I used to
take five-year leases, 10-year leases, "
said Spielberg. "Now, when I get up
in the morning and realize that I'm
awake, I'm happy. I know its going
to be a good day." Li
