Chanukah visits that brighten the spirit
Families and friends were invited to Jewish Pavilion Chanukah celebrations all throughout the holiday. When loved ones visit from out of town, the feeling of Chanukah and the songs and latkes brighten everyone's spirit. Shown here (left) are Lynn Shader Podber with her father, Stan Shader and (right) Susan Bernstein, playing guitar at the festive Chanukah sing a long.
Shader Podber is grateful for the visits and attention her father receives from Jewish Pavilion volunteers.
"It was such a treat to be in town for this fun and festive celebration. There aren't enough words to let you know how much your wonderful organization is appreciated by me because I don't live in Orlando. It warms my heart knowing that your incredible volunteers bring the holidays to him. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for every smile, decoration, song, cookie and homemade latke. Most important, thank you for including Alzheimer's patients in all that you do... and for recognizing that they too can enjoy these celebrations and visits," she said.
"Thank you to the many, many volunteers and families who participated in the Chanukah parties. We hope you enjoyed the beautiful lights and celebrations with your loved ones," said Emily Newman, program director and Senior Resource specialist.
