The decorations are starting to up at the Robison Jewish Health Center in preparation for Chanukah!
Residents of Robison and participants in Adult Day Services are looking forward to some of the things they love most about the holiday, including:
- Latkes (with or without apple sauce),
- The chance to light the candles on the Menorah and saying the appropriate blessings each night,
- Fancy cakes,
- The joy of seeing wonderful children,
- The game of Dreidl,
- Gelt coins filled with chocolate
Construction Update: It is Thanksgiving week and the construction work continues. Work is beginning on the 3-story building (top photo). Cement and other work continues on the one story building (bottom photos).
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:
- 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!
It is hard to capture all the activity that is happening with our construction. Lower parking lot is coming along. Upper building walls are getting taller. Lower building foundation is beginning to move forward.
