ven a garden can
have Jewish roots, if
its nearby activities
house receives a
mezuzah.
At a recent dedication on the
grounds of JVS in Southfield, Rabbi
David Nelson of Congregation Beth
Shalom and Rabbi Jonathan
Berkun of Congregation
Shan rey Zedek affixed a
mezuzah to the doorpost of
Grand Cottage, a site for indoor
and outdoor gardening activi-
ties, outside of JVS' Rose and
Sidney Diem Building.
The cottage, garden area and
a gazebo were dedicated at a
ceremony and outdoor party fot
250 guests.
"The therapeutic garden was
designed to help older adults
with memory disorders and
people with developmental dis-
abilities retain their physical
stamina, socialize with others
and develop feelings of accom-
plishment," says Stacey Crane,
chair of the JVS board of
trustees.
"The garden is a peaceful
place where people forget about
their limitations and test the
limits of what they are still
capable of doing," she says.
Featuring raised flowerbeds to

make gardening easier for those with
physical restrictions, the garden is
named in memory of the late Dorothy
and Charles Cook of Detroit to carry
on their love of gardening.
"Dorothy planned and tended won-
derful gardens at their home in north-
west Detroit and Charlie worked right
along with her," says their relative
Gerald S. Cook of Farmington Hills,
who attended the party with his moth-

er, Jeanette.
"They loved having people stop to
admire the beautiful displays of color,
blooming spring through fall, and often
gave cuttings to friends and relatives,"
he says.
The nearby Joseph Schwartz gazebo
is a structure "where individuals can
gather, socialize with one another or
just enjoy the outdoors," Crane says.
Project donors include Dorothy and
Charles Cook, the Lillian and
Joseph Schwartz Charitable Fund,
the Ben N. Teitel Trust and
Nancy and Stephen Grand, who
established an endowment fund
to support staff and supplies for a
horticultural therapy program.
Crane says: "The unique garden
caught the interest and imagina-
tion of many people who donated
funds toward the project to help it
come to life." ❑
