Shabbat all day long
December 27, 2019
On the second Friday of every month, Debbie Meitin races from one Shabbat service at a Jewish Pavilion assisted-living facility to another. On holidays, she comes prepared with extra stories and Judaic holiday items. All day, she diligently leads services and visits seniors as a volunteer for the Jewish Pavilion and then races home to get ready for her own Shabbat dinner and evening services at Temple Israel. Her combination of warmth, Judaic knowledge and a beautiful singing voice make her the ideal service leader. Meitin is adored by the seniors who reside in long-term care, the staff at the facilities and the Jewish Pavilion staff and volunteers.
