egular exercise is essential to healthy aging. It lowers risk factors linked to the development

of chronic disease, such as, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high levels of triglycerides. In turn, physical inactivity has been linked to the development of heart disease and stroke. The American Heart Association (AHA) cites physical inactivity as a major risk factor for developing coronary artery disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) highlights regular physical activity as one of the most important steps to take to prevent serious health problems that can occur with age. Different activities lead to different health benefits. Some forms of exercise, such as strengthening exercises, improve flexibility and balance. Aerobic exercise increases cardiovascular fitness and endurance. Examples of aerobic activities include brisk walking, bicycling, jogging and dancing. CDC’s guidelines recommend that older adults 65+ who have no limiting health conditions participate in moderate-intense aerobic activities for at least two and a half hours every week. It also recommends including muscle-strengthening exercises, such as, lifting weights, working with resistance bands, heavy gardening, or yoga on two or more days every week. Strengthening exercises can increase a person’s flexibility and balance, which reduce the likelihood and severity of falls.

Planning for the future by Shelby Tudor

E

state planning is the process by which an individual or family arranges for the administration and transfer of assets in anticipation of their incapacitation or death. When contemplating such transfers, it has been said that every parent has one additional child to remember in his or her will: the Jewish community. A charitable bequest is perhaps the easiest way to ensure Jewish continuity. A charitable bequest may provide for a percentage of an estate or a specific dollar gift or specific asset(s) to be given to support the community. It may also be in the form of a gift of the remaining assets of an estate after other specific designations are made. Like other gifts, a charitable bequest can be designated for a wide range of purposes or given without restriction. Designating a bequest that creates a single fund at the Tidewater Jewish Foundation can provide annual support to community agencies as desired. Charitable bequests: • May be established through a will • May be in any amount • Provide an estate tax deduction if the estate is taxable • P rovide permanent resources to support organizations important to the individual. By deciding to leave a bequest in a will, a permanent legacy can be created. Gifts may be in the form of cash, securities or other estate property—and the estate will receive a tax deduction in the amount of the charitable bequest. Those who have already drafted their wills, can have their attorneys help arrange or change a charitable bequest with a simple amendment or codicil. An easy way of establishing a legacy is

through the designation of retirement plan assets. Too often, the estate and income taxes imposed on these plans make them a poor choice for passing on to heirs. As charitable gifts, however, retirement plans can be powerful tools for endowing a charitable legacy to the community. By careful planning during one’s lifetime, a loving parent can give a sizeable gift to the community that could otherwise create a heavy tax burden on their heirs. These plans may also be used to create a testamentary charitable trust as part of a will with significant benefits to both heirs and the community. No one is ever too young to make plans for the future. Contact your attorney or financial professional for guidance on how best to ensure your legacy. A planned gift enables you to be present forever. You may also contact TJF for assistance and for a copy of the Wills Planner to aid in this process, www.jewishva.org.

he Mary and Avalon S. Krukin Award for Senior Adults was presented to Marilyn Moranha at the Simon Family JCC’s annual meeting on Monday, May 19. Morhana received the award because of the time and energy she devotes to the seniors at the JCC. This is her sixth year serving as president of the Seniors Club, and prior to that, she held the position of treasurer for several years. As president, Moranha conducts all business and news in the beginning of each monthly meeting, saving the lighter fare such as joke time or entertainment for the end of the hour. This month she has lined up a master gardener to speak and will bring a country singer in for July. Moranha is very visible at the JCC each week between the Senior Current Events Club, mahjong, and the Senior Club. “The Seniors need to feel that they are a part of a being at the JCC,” she says. “We go on trips, we see shows and it’s all very socially engaging for us.”

Bashert: Kitty and Abbott Saks’ 60-year love story

Kitty and Abbott Saks. Article and Photos by Laine Mednick Rutherford

S

he went to the Jewish social for teens and young adults in Norfolk with a date. He hadn’t wanted to go at all, but reluctantly agreed at the urging of friends. What happened to 17-year-old Kitty Friedenbach and 18-year-old Abbott Saks on the night of January 26, 1950 at the United Orthodox Synagogue in Norfolk (now B’Nai Israel Congregation) was, in Kitty’s words, bashert. A Yiddish word, bashert broadly means destiny, and often is used when speaking about something that predestined, that is meant to be. On that night, at that social, destiny stepped in, bearing the name of Harvey Saks* (of blessed memory), Abbott’s younger brother and a classmate of Kitty’s. The details of their first meeting remain vivid to Kitty (Friedenbach) Saks. “Harvey said to me, ‘Kitty, my brother’s here. He’s interested in languages,” the spritely Norfolk resident says. “I said, ‘Harvey, I can’t. I’m on a date.’ He didn’t listen to me. He took me by the hand and dragged me to Abbott.” Handsome, studious Abbott Saks was

leaning against the entrance to the party, looking and feeling uninterested. A freshman at the Old Dominion Campus of William & Mary studying Spanish, Saks wasn’t expecting to meet anyone that evening, certainly not the lovely, feisty, bright-eyed Viennese girl whose family had moved to Norfolk two years previously, after years struggling to survive the Holocaust. As Harvey introduced them and told Abbott that Kitty spoke several languages, Abbott says he woke up. He chatted with Kitty for a while and was intrigued, or in Abbott’s parlance—he’s a master at wordplay, a genius at remembering quotes and quick to provide levity—he was “smitten with the kitten.” “I was fascinated by the fluency of her English after only two years here,” Abbott says. “And she wasn’t a bad looker either.” Kitty remembers Abbott repeatedly saying, “That’s remarkable,” and not seeming so anxious to leave the social any longer. She, though, politely told him goodnight, and went to find her date, who had seen some of what transpired.

“’Tu t’ais amourer a chez de lui,’ he told me—you flipped over him, didn’t you?” says Kitty. “’I said, how could I? I just met the guy.’ But I had flipped. It was love at first sight.” When Kitty got home that night, she woke her mother up, and in German told her, “Now. I’ve met somebody.” The next day, after classes were over at Old Dominion, arms laden with a stack of school books, Abbott went to the store Kitty’s parents owned on Church Street, three blocks away from the store that his family owned on the same Norfolk street. He introduced himself to her parents, and the rest, as Kitty would say, is bashert. On May 30, 1954, the pair married at B’nai Israel. After a three-day honeymoon in New York, Abbott departed for Army duty as an MP, stationed in Berlin. Kitty didn’t like the thought of them living apart, so she booked passage on the S.S. United States and soon joined him there. “It was difficult going back,” Kitty says. “His barracks were former SS headquarters and that’s where I spent most of my days. Every morning, before he left, Abbott warmed me, ‘Kitty, don’t get into any fights today.’ And I did try, mostly, to stay out of trouble.” After a year in Germany, the couple returned to Norfolk, where Abbott began teaching Spanish in Norfolk Public Schools and Kitty established their home. Within a few years, they had two children: David and Tonie. In the decades that followed, Abbott became a popular Spanish professor at Old Dominion University, eventually earning the honored distinction of teaching there for 50 years. Kitty devoted herself to her children and became an integral member of the Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Speakers’ Bureau. Her Holocaust survival story, which she has shared with thousands, if not

An accomplished educator and poet, Abbott Saks reads a poem he wrote to Kitty in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary, 35 years previously.
