Jewish Pavilion celebrates Pesach

 

All smiles at the seder table at Horizon Bay-Montgomery Ave.

"I want to thank G-D for allowing us to celebrate Passover together," said a teary-eyed Life Care resident, who rarely speaks. That statement alone justifies the importance of the Jewish Pavilion. To witness hands on, the joy that we bring to the Jewish seniors makes all our hard work, worth it.

I had such pleasure organizing nine Pesach seders at nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout Altamonte Springs, Maitland, and Apopka. Knowing that there are many Jewish elders that will not be able to physically share Pesach with their loved ones, it was my obligation not only to the Jewish Pavilion, but as a fellow Jew, to bring seders to them. I truly believe that I may have gotten as much delight from celebrating this holiday with them, as they did with me.

I could not have made these fabulous seders possible had it not been for the generous contributions from our beloved sponsors. I am also very fortunate to work with some amazing volunteers, whose devotion and big hearts touch so many lives.

If you would like to become involved in the Jewish Pavilion and continue to enhance the lives of the seniors in our community together, please call 407-678-9363 for more information.
