Jewish Pavilion volunteers bring joy to senior residents


A huge and sincere thank you goes out to Rebecca Kleiman and Susan Bernstein who have become devoted Jewish Pavilion volunteers. Susan leads Shabbat songs and prayers once or twice a month at both Brookdale Island Lake and Oakmonte Village: Cordova. She has a true gift in teaching and story telling to enhance the Shabbat service.

Rebecca Kleiman has made herself available to many seniors at several area facilities on Shabbat and throughout the week. One recent Shabbat, she introduced her two young children to the seniors and everyone shared stories and songs.

Seniors who are residing in senior living communities are afforded the unique experience of sharing the Jewish holidays and Shabbat with their neighbors and community volunteers like Susan and Rebecca. The photo of Rebecca and Susan (standing) with Pearl Bernstein and Jack shows the enjoyment on everyone's faces.

Come join in each Friday at 4 p.m. at Brookdale Island Lake. For a thorough listing of all programs visit jewishpavilion.org
