Tim Pollak, with a PhD on the wall, brought us up to date on his life story. Tim was born Sep. 6, 1945 on the south side of Chicago. Probably while still in the hospital, their apartment caught on fire and the family moved to the Rogers Park area of Chicago. When in first grade, they moved to Evanston and he went through all grades there. The high school was so large, he went to “East Hall” high school in Evanston.

At 15, he was active in youth groups, debating life. They decided there was no universal purpose to human life. Because of that, he decided to go into clinical psychology. He attended Antioch College and their “cooperative plan of education (classes for one quarter then work in the field for a quarter). He worked in Phoenix, AZ; Boston, MA; Skokie, IL and San Jose, CA to name a few.

Tim was a “consciences objector” at the time of the Viet Nam war and worked in several hospitals instead of fighting. He was accepted to DU in Social Work but wondered why he never heard from the U. of TN. After a phone call and an interview, he was accepted. He graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psych. from the Univ. in 1979.

Tim married the first time in 1981, divorced in 1982, met Ruth in 1983 and married her in 1984. (He didn’t mention what happened in 1985 but it had to be good). Tim and Ruth have their own counseling service called ReLeaf Counseling (303 972-0714. He was introduced to the club in 1989 by Barney O’Grady with Dean Hiss’s help. Tim was club President in 2003/04 and has been very active in the club over the years and was our Sertoman of the Year in 2006.


Program:  Dick Enslow introduced Annie & Joelle Dozoretz. Annie is an X-Nebraskan native and has made Colorado her home for many years now. Her daughter, Joelle, has spent quit a bit of time in Israel volunteering to do many things. She came today to explain a lot of what she does and had a slide show to let us see what the country looks like. Below are some excerpts from her talk. Annie is the accountant at the Bingo hall.

“It was a “Dream Come True” when, with the help of some wonderful philanthropic organizations, I was able to enroll in a year program in Israel. As with any program there were months filled with planning meetings here in the USA and lots and lots of information packages – with rules, procedures, itineraries, etc.

Then the date come; I found myself on a 12-hour flight to almost another world, to the middle east, to the small, Democratic country of Israel – and Israel is really very tiny when compared to her neighbors. “

Joelle never imagined she would have friends in such a seemingly remote, yet personally close place, people coming together from all over the world. Her friends discussed, shared and differed on personal experiences, values and the overall outlook on how to live and on what’s important. Her experience was full of attending school, volunteering, visiting ancient, historical sites, different places of learning throughout the country, modern and very traditional districts of commerce, and cities of high-tech stature juxtaposed with cities of ancient qualities.

Some of the activities she was involved in were teaching English, working in food kitchens, delivering meals to the elderly and sick, working with mentally and physically challenged children, interning as an EMT for Mada and Gadna – basic training with Israeli army, along with regular new recruits. Contact Joelle for more on her experience:
