  • Fancy cakes,
  • The joy of seeing wonderful children,
  • The game of Dreidl,
  • Gelt coins filled with chocolate

Rose Schnitzer Manor Resident Art Show

Residents of Rose Schnitzer Manor recently participated in an afternoon of art and appetizers! Zidell Hall was filled with RSM residents enjoying wine, appetizers, piano music, each others’ company and most especially art work made by their talented neighbors!


Around 30 residents submitted artwork in various mediums. There are so many great people living at Rose Schnitzer Manor and some really great artists too!  All in all, it was a wonderful resident art show. Thanks to everyone who submitted their art and all who attended.


Thankful for Adult Day Services!

A visit to Adult Day Services is always a delight. During a recent visit, the participants were enjoying a snack and reading some Shel Silverstein poetry.


They also reflected on just what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving:

  • Life!
  • Being Alive!
  • My good friend of many years who is in the hospital.
  • 3 very good kids.
  • My father who turned a little girl into a baseball pitcher.
  • Turkey and Pumpkin Pie.
  • My mother who, even with an artificial arm…still baked knish!
  • Being invited to come to spend the day with this group of friends.
  • The milkman…who delivered (every day!) milk and seltzer water to our house.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Jim is back to amaze us with his ability to read poetry from his memory. Jim has memorized many poems for which he will recite to us. Some are classic favorites and some are his creations.

A quote from our staff regarding a visit by Jim:

“Rose Schnitzer Manor would like to send a BIG Thank You To Jim for his presentation at our community on September 5th. Jim not only told wonderful stories, he thrilled his audience with his beautiful poetic talents as well. His presentation was delightful. We look forward to seeing Jim again in the near future. Thank you again Jim, for that wonderful event!” Shelley T., Community Outreach Coordinator, Cedar Sinai Park, Portland
