Everyone should have the chance to celebrate the High Holidays!
While Jews across the nation are celebrating Rosh Hashanah on Sept. 5th and 6th, the Jewish Pavilion’s High Holiday season extends for several weeks. Their four program directors each coordinate a dozen High Holiday celebrations in independent, assisted- and skilled-nursing facilities in greater Orlando. Even buildings with one Jewish resident receive attention. The resident receives a visit complete with a card, High Holiday prayers, apples, honey, challah, honey cake and a Jewish calendar. In other buildings, like Chambrel in Longwood, more than 100 people participate in Rosh Hashanah festivities. Special thanks to Vitas Innovative Hospice for providing raisin challah and honey cake to 350 Jewish seniors in long-term care.
