Jack Lemmon was overjoyed about becoming old before his time for a role. With thinning, white hair, a shuffling walk, raspy voice and diminishing health, he faced illness and death. The 65-year-old veteran actor aged a couple of decades in a matter of hours for his role in the 1989 film "Dad," playing Jake Tremont, an old man dealing with the realities of the sometimes not-so-golden years.

She didn't know the song--it sounded more Latin than Jewish--and she certainly didn't know the proper steps, but Rose Sattler, 89, gripped her hip-walker and danced a ferocious hora-Charleston combination. It was a Mother's Day dance for a special friend. "She's going to be 102 years old in June," Sattler said of her absent cohort. "She's having trouble breathing and couldn't be here." So this dance was for her.

Elderly women chat over a kosher meal in a dining room. Older men listen to a rabbi during a daily worship service. Aged couples gather in common rooms to celebrate sacred holidays and traditions. Since 1913, the Los Angeles Jewish Home for the Aging has provided residential care for the city's elderly Jewish population, a demographic that is expected to double by 2040, officials said.

The cabaret singer called them "my favorite fans." They called him "our Michael." And when he finished his show Sunday afternoon, they gave him a five-minute standing ovation--some bracing themselves with walkers, others rising gingerly in wheelchairs. Michael Feinstein, veteran of Carnegie Hall, Broadway and performances before royalty and U. S. Presidents, was back at the Jewish Home for the Aging in Reseda, entertaining an audience that knew him "before he was famous."

And there was light--lots of it, energy-efficient, easy-on-the-eyes light for the elderly. Residents of the Los Angeles Jewish Home for the Aging--where the average age is 90--are enjoying light like they haven't seen in years, thanks to a program from the Department of Water and Power that offers financial incentives to install energy-efficient lighting. "It really is a win-win situation," said home spokesman Michael Turner. "We're going to save 1.

Rae Brykman, 82, is one of the most sought-after voters in Los Angeles. Big-name politicians repeatedly visit her home. After all, her home can deliver 800 votes. Tucked into a tree-lined Reseda neighborhood, the two sprawling campuses of the Jewish Home for the Aging are voting precincts in and of themselves. All the residents of the facilities--located about 1 1/2 miles apart and covering about 15 acres--are registered voters and nearly all of them cast ballots.

It's touted as the biggest Mother's Day celebration in the world, and it's happening today at the Jewish Home for the Aging's Eisenberg Village Campus in Reseda. More than 2,000 people--including celebrities Martin Landau, Mary Hart and Renee Taylor--are expected at the festivities that will include brunch, music, comedy and a magic performance. The celebration, in its second year, attracted 1,500 people last year.

The Los Angeles Jewish Home for the Aging in Reseda received more than $1.2 million in contributions thanks to the efforts of a Beverly Hills-based real estate investor. Richard Ziman and 20 members of the Marilyn and Monty Hall Statesman's Club in Reseda recently donated $750,000 to help provide support to the facility's 750 residents, said Michael Turner, a spokesman for the Jewish home. In addition, Ziman issued a challenge to the community to match the amount.

About 20 employees of the Jewish Home for the Aging in Reseda picketed outside the home's Eisenberg Village campus Thursday, protesting what they say is poor treatment of workers and worsening living conditions for residents. But while employees, who want a union, contend recent financial problems at the home have brought a decline in services, several residents seated under trees nearby reacted to the protest with surprise, bordering on derision.

At the Grancell Village Jewish Home for the Aging, they threw a party Thursday, just as they do every month in a place where the average age is 90 and passing age 100 hardly causes a stir. But though the songs and cake for 104-year-old Rachel Cohn and others were the same, times have changed for the nonprofit institution that runs it.

Sheldon J. Blumenthal likes to repeat what he terms "a traditional Jewish greeting" that goes: "May you live to be 120." Hardly anybody lives that long, but Blumenthal, executive director of Jewish Homes for the Aging of Greater Los Angeles in Reseda, is seeing more and more people getting close to it. "And why not?" he asks. "That's what Moses did, and he could see and hear and have sex. He was very healthy."
