Jewish Pavilion Program Director Gloria Green organized nine Purim parties at nine different assisted living facilities in the downtown Orlando and Southwest Orlando areas all in just eight days.

"It was a wonderful experience, Purim is a happy holiday and it did indeed bring joy to these seniors," Green said of the events.

Jewish Pavilion volunteers and Green gave Shalach Manot baskets, filled with goodies by the children of the Rosen JCC Early Childhood Learning Center, to the seniors at the facilities.

The three other program directors-Julie Levitt, Judy Procell and Emily Newman-were also busy with similar Purim parties.
