hatever you do, don't call
them old. Abe Ulanoff, 86,
might invite you for a
"quick little walk" with him,
and Dr. Gerald Krause, 79, might stick a
tennis racquet in your hand and make a lit-
tle side bet.
Both men captured medals at the nation-

al Senior Olympics in Hampton Roads,
KIRSBAUM Va., on May 27.
Driving back to Southfield from his win-

ter home in Florida, Ulanoff dropped in on
the national Senior Olympics and drove
away 13 days later with three medals.
"I beat the other old guys, the alter kockers," he joked.
With a time of 10:58, Ulanoff broke the Senior

He plans to appear at the Michigan Senior Olympics in
Lansing in August.

Winning the bronze is "quite exciting," said Dr. Krause,
a retired dentist who lives in Arizona and summers in
Bloomfield Hills.
He took bronze by winning four out of five matches.
He has entered the Senior Olympics for the last 10

Quotables

"We need to remember that Jews who
are intermarried are still Jews. We
should not reject them. Generally
speaking, we should be inclusive of
the non-Jewish members of the family
... in any area that will not be a
breach of Halachah [Jewish law]."

— Rabbi David Steinhardt of frnai
Torah Congregation, Boca Raton, Fla.,
in the article "Outreach To the
Intermarried" in the spring issue of the
United Synagogue of Conservative
Judaism Review.
