Professional Enhances Senior Living

r

or outstanding professional
service to the community,
Marsha Goldsmith Kamin,
executive director of Jewish
Apartments & Services, has been
cited with the 2005 Mandell L. and
Madeleine H. Berman Award.
The award recognizes outstanding
contributions of communal profes-
sionals employed by the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit,
its partner agencies and beneficiaries
Presentation of the award is sched-
uled for Aug. 24 at the meeting of
the combined boards of the Jewish
Federation and United Jewish
Foundation.
Kamin is described by her col-
leagues as caring and compassionate,
with a quiet dignity touching the
hearts of hundreds of older adults
and their families. She was cited as
"a consummate professional, a con-

sensus builder, creative dreamer and
an unwavering proponent of all that
makes life rich and good for the eld-
erly in the Jewish community."
In the 14 years of her stewardship,
the number of apartments available
has grown 57 percent, now serving
860 older adults. As executive direc-
tor, she has overseen the construc-
tion of the second phase of
Hechtman Apartments, both phases
of the Meer Apartments and the
Mondry Administrative Building.
She has built a dedicated staff and
has obtained millions of dollars in
HUD grants for development of
assisted living floors and expansion
of staffing and services at Prentis
Apartments. She has won national
acclaim for innovative programs,
including a model prescription drug
program; J-Care, an independent
business providing in-home assis-

surrounding synagogues, Federation's
Neighborhood Project and Oak Park
residents.
Janet Birkrant Levine, a member
of the JAS executive committee,
said, "The real testament to Marsha's
contribution comes from our Jewish
Apartments residents. At a recent
meeting of Federation's Women's
Department hosted at Meer
Apartments, one of the residents
spoke of the joy and gratitude she
feels at having so wonderful and
warm a place to live. There wasn't a
dry eye in the house."
Marsha Goldsmith Kamin lives in
Huntington Woods with husband,
Mark. The Kamins have three
daughters, Shira, Rachelle and
Amira. ❑
