Home Away From Home



For over 40 years, NCJW/ Greater Detroit has been my home away from home; something that has been mine, a special part of me.

There are so many wonderful memories.   One of my cherished times was helping to create All Kids Playground.  Over a three year period, Myrna Edgar, Judy Rosenberg, Marsha Zucker and I worked along with many other NCJW women to develop the concept of a universally accessible  playground ; a place where  children of all physical and mental abilities could play together.  My co-chairs and I spent hours working with the City of Waterford and the equipment company; we led committees that did major fundraising and publicity efforts.  We capped off the project with a special event featuring Ted Kennedy, Jr. as our keynote speaker.  There was a lot of work that had to be done by so many, but I loved every minute that I devoted to it.

Working with and making friends with the amazing women who give so much of themselves has made me very proud to be a member of NCJW.
