Remembering Shirley and Stanley Hayman

Remembering Shirley and Stanley Hayman
"The Hebrew Home has always been important to the Hayman family and the Jewish community of Washington. It is our responsibility as well as that of future generations to help ensure its success."
– Stanley Hayman, z"l

From his earliest days, Stanley visited residents and attended services at the Hebrew Home. A native Washingtonian, he lived only steps away from the original Hebrew Home on M Street, NW, which his father, Benjamin Hayman, helped to found. Like his father, Stanley served on the Hebrew Home Board and it was during his tenure in the 1960s that the Home relocated to Rockville. Stanley and Shirley made the first of many generous gifts, dedicating the Home's pharmacy in memory of Shirley's brother Eddie Wolfe. Stanley is remembered as saying, "the Hebrew Home has always been important to the Hayman family and the Jewish community of Washington. It is our responsibility as well as that of future generations to help ensure its success."

Meanwhile, as president of B'nai Israel in Rockville, he oversaw construction of the current synagogue. Our community lost Stanley in March 2008, and his contributions of time and experience are missed. His final contribution to the Hebrew Home endowed a fund which provides specialized training for our clinical staff.

In 1938, Stanley started buying and selling used cash registers. Two years later, he married Shirley Wolfe. While still a newlywed, Stanley enlisted in the Army, serving as a specialist in tool control registers. He returned to his business, Hayman Systems, after the war, and it grew into one of the largest independent dealers in the industry. In 1948, Stanley and twenty-five other independent dealers founded the Independent Cash Register Dealers Association (ICRDA). Stanley served as its executive secretary for twenty-seven years and then as president and chairman of the board. In 2003 ICRDA changed its name to Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) and today has over 1000 members and associate members. Stanley retired from Hayman Systems in 1985, turning the business over to his two sons, Richard and Alan. In 1998, Hayman Systems was sold to Micro Systems, a $500 million dollar company. Alan stayed on as senior executive vice president.

Charles E. Smith Life Communities (CESLC) is grateful to Stanley Hayman for the bequest from his trust to support clinical staff training.
