could have been called
Tweedledee and Tweedledum
if it weren't for Lillian Tabak.
When the two birds arrived recently
at the Lillian and Samuel Hechtman
Jewish Apartments in West
Bloomfield, they were nameless. So,
Esther Winer, community-outreach
coordinator for the
Services who had pur-
chased the birds,
organized a contest.
After reviewing 18
entries by Hechtman
residents, Tabak's was
chosen the winner by
Tim Elliott, JAS devel- DORFMAN
opment director. Tabak, StaIT Writer
who won a gift certifi-
cate donated by JAS Friends and
Family Society for her winning entry,
said "Moishe" and "Oishe" "just
popped into my head" as names for the
birds she describes as "cute and chirpy."
Winer said the parakeets "are cared
for by various residents who stop by
and talk to them daily." A welcome
addition to the facility, she said the
birds came to Hechtman after "resi-
dents requested another mascot
besides Queenie, their lovable dog." III
