Fitness guru Sylvia Zukin honored on
her 90th birthday.

Sue Pearl

Special to the Jewish News

T

he Jewish Community
Center's Randleman Hall
in West Bloomfield was all
decked out for a 90th birthday party
Sunday, Feb. 24, to honor local fit-
ness guru, Sylvia Zukin. More than
190 guests came to the party, hosted
by the Jewish Community Center and
the Women's Health Club.
The guests included family mem-
bers, lifelong friends, students and
co-workers. Sylvia's three children,
their spouses, 13 grandchildren and
11 great-grandchildren were on hand,
some from as far away as New York,
Florida, Washington, D.C., Illinois,
Iowa, Colorado and Israel.
In 1956, Sylvia began working as
an exercise instructor for the JCC at
its original location on Woodward
Avenue. She moved with the Center
to its Dexter-Davison location and
then on to the Curtis location where
she became the director of Women's
Health. "At the time, I was the only
woman in a man's world;' she said.
When the JCC opened in West
Bloomfield in 1975, Sylvia also
worked there as the director of the
Women's Health Club, until 15 years
ago. She was instrumental in bringing

Sylvia Zukin and Carol Eisenshtadt
at the 90th birthday celebration

yoga, pilates, Feldenkrais and many
other cutting-edge ideas to the Center.
She still teaches hydro-tone and
body-awareness exercise classes an
hour a day Monday-Friday.
Carol Eisenshtadt, a member of the
JCC who was instrumental in plan-
ning the party, said, "Sylvia makes
each and every one of us feel special
and wonderful because she takes a
special interest in each person."
Sylvia was presented with a plaque
from the JCC in recognition for her
life-long commitment and listened as
everyone sang a rousing tribute to her
life with a song crafted by Eisenshtadt
to the tune of the old hit, "Marne:'
After thanking everyone for corn-
ing, Sylvia told her guests, "I only
wish that you all have a blessed life
like I have."
