Bringing Jewish community to your doorstep
When ill health prevents someone from Chambrel from going to shul, the Jewish Pavilion steps in. The Pavilion provides weekly Shabbat services at Chambrel, an independent and assisted living facility in Longwood.
Pictured, from left, are Cliff Schilling, Emma Bookspan and Miriam Van. Prior to her move to Chambrel, Miriam was a dedicated and beloved Jewish Pavilion office volunteer with exquisite handwriting. She hand-addressed thousands of cards and envelopes over the years. Although she was not eager to leave her home, the move to Chambrel has been a Godsend, she says. Miriam now has new friends and exciting things to do every day of the week. A weekly embrace from her friends at the Jewish Pavilion adds to her enjoyment of life. Meeting Emma Bookspan, a new youth volunteer, was especially thrilling.
