Jewish seniors enjoyed Rosh Hashanah via technology
October 2, 2020
Even though the current pandemic has forced the Jewish Pavilion to curtail many of its services and programs that have been scheduled for the senior living facilities in the Orlando area, the dedicated program directors and volunteers have not given up their effort to connect with and support our Jewish seniors. Holiday gift bags have been delivered to over 400 residents for the High Holidays, in addition to providing Rosh Hashanah services that have been viewed via in-house TV channels, big-screen, theater-style viewing or even by individual Tablet viewing, depending on the technology that is available at each facility. Regardless of media used, the results are the same - the ability to hear the holiday melodies and prayers that bring back memories and enrich our lives.
