COS teens bring joy to seniors at Rosh Hashanah service

Thanks to the young teens of Congregation Ohev Shalom, the residents at Brookdale Island Lake community enjoyed a joyous and meaningful Rosh Hashanah service. For many seniors with limited transportation or patience to sit (and stand) for a traditional Yom Tov service, the prayers, singing and readings with the young teens was just perfect. For one of the residents who was once a USY adviser himself 'back in the day,' the presence and enthusiasm of the children brought him pure joy and opportunity to reminisce.
