Golden Hearts

SHARON HART AND PERRY TEICHER

TO RECEIVE UNITED WAY AWARDS.

SHARON LUCKERMAN

Staff Writer

T

wo of the 14 volunteers to
be honored with United
Way Community Services'
prestigious volunteer awards
began their volunteer "educations" at
the same place: B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization
(BBYO), the largest
Jewish youth group
in the world.
Sharon Hart, presi-
dent of the Jewish
Community Center,
and Perry Teicher, 18,
BBYO Michigan
regional president
and a senior at West
Bloomfield High
School, will be
among those honored Hart
at the United Way
Community Services'
volunteer luncheon
Monday, April 28, at
the Detroit Marriott
Renaissance Center.
More than 1,200
people will attend the
event that coincides
with National
Volunteer Week
(April 27-May 3).
Both Hart and
Teicher are members
Perry
of Adat Shalom
Synagogue and live in West
Bloomfield.
Hart will receive one of six Heart of
Gold awards, "one of the highest vol-
unteer recognition awards one can
receive," said Virgil H. Carr, president
and CEO of United Way Community
Services. "These honorees represent the
thousands of volunteers throughout
southeastern Michigan who give
unselfishly to benefit the lives of oth-
ers."
"Hart's the kind of volunteer every
professional wants to work with," said
Harlene Appelman, director of
Federation's Alliance for Jewish
Education, who wrote a support letter

for Hart. "Sharon is bright, funny and
cares deeply about what she's doing.
She's willing to roll up her sleeves and
do the hard work, and she manages to
motivate professionals because you
want to go the extra mile with her."
For 40-50 hours a week for two
years, Hart has worked as JCC presi-
dent. She's also held leadership posi-
tions in Women's American
ORT-Michigan Region, Yad
Ezra and in the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit's community out-
reach and education pro-
grams.
Yet, with all her work in
so many different areas,
Hart has never lost sight of
the importance of another
kind of leader.
"I saw Sharon at the
beginning of her involve-
ment at Adat Shalom," said
Rabbi Efry Spectre, rabbi
emeritus of Adat Shalom,
who knew Hart when she
was president of his congre-
gation. "One thing about
her, she's a friend of rabbis.
She understands the mission
of Judaism and the place of
rabbis in furthering that
mission. At times, not
everybody can see that pic-
ture, but Sharon can."
When asked why she
spends so many hours volun-
teering, Hart said, "I found that I felt
very fulfilled in the volunteer force. I
was continually learning and it afford-
ed new opportunities and new relation-
ships. And I liked being able to influ-
ence people in what they would assume
is a positive way."
With her presidency ending this year,
Hart hopes to have an opportunity for
more Judaic learning, which doesn't
mean she will stop volunteering. "I like
challenges and the opportunity to initi-
ate new programs and experiences —
just doing exactly what I've been doing.
I find it extraordinarily fulfilling."
The five other Heart of Gold
awardees include Eve Boicourt of West

outages and flooded base-
ments. This season is no excep-
tion. A flooded basement can
cause thousands of dollars in
damage and destroy every-
thing the water touches. You
need to protect yourself.
JEFFREY MOSS
A water powered back-up
sump pump is the best way to protect your-
self from spring and summer rainstorms and
power outages.

The GUARDIAN water powered back-up
sump pump eliminates basement flooding
without electricity. The Guardian back-up
pump is used in emergency situations such as
sump pump failures or electrical power out-
ages. The Guardian pump is installed next to
your existing sump pump and will automati-
cally activate when the existing pump fails.
