“It Takes a Village: Supporting Families Caring for Elders” on March 10

Cedar Sinai Park, in collaboration with Jewish Family & Child Service and Sinai Family Home Services, invite you to a new family support group:

“It Takes a Village: Supporting Families Caring for Elders”

Caring for a family member – whether in your home, their home or in another care setting – can be very stressful.  Even if you do not provide hands-on care, you may struggle with a lack of privacy, sleep deprivation, feelings of anger, guilt or depression, or an overwhelming sense of responsibility for the well-being of your loved one.

We are here to tell you that you are not Holding Hands with Elderly Patientalone.

“It Takes a Village” meets at 7:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at Rose Schnitzer Manor. The group is facilitated by David Molko, Senior Outreach Clinician for Jewish Family & Child Service, and Sarah Wheeler, Social Services Director at Robison Jewish Health Center.  Participants have the opportunity to share their concerns, explore solutions to problems, and suggest topics for future meetings.

Monday, March 10th, 7:00 p.m.

Tonight residents of the Rose Schnitzer Manor will be putting on a variety show, “Putting on the Schnitz.” There will be 6 performers dressed in Red White and Blue to kick off the holiday celebration. These individuals are part of an ongoing troop that puts on a couple of shows annually.

The show will consist of short stories, poetry, singing and a fiddle performance. The sonnets and poems are originals, and the musical pieces will include a couple of songs from the Carpenters. Each entertainer had to try out and participate in weekly rehearsals. Elizabeth Moore, Life Enrichment Director, “loves that our community has people who are so vivacious and creative that we as the Life Enrichment professionals only help to support their ideas come to fruition. ”

Hyman Freedman, our prized fiddle player will play three songs. He began learning to play the fiddle when he retired in 1982. He enjoys having the opportunity to perform,

It is going to be a wonderful event. We hope you can join us at 6:45 tonight in the Zidell Hall!

Launching Senior Lunch and Learn

Rabbi Isaak speaks at the inaugural Senior Lunch and Learn at Rose Schnitzer Manor

Rose Schnitzer Manor and Neveh Shalom have teamed up to host a Senior Lunch and Learn for Jewish seniors on the first Friday of each month.

At the recent luncheon on Friday, April 5th, Rabbi Isaak showed pictures of his trip to Burma and talked about the Jewish presence in that predominantly Buddhist country. Although Burma’s Jews once numbered in the thousands, there are currently only approximately 20 Jews in Yangon (Rangoon), where the country’s only synagogue is located. Most of the Jews left Myanmar at the commencement of the Second World War, and later after General Ne Win took over in 1962.

About Senior Lunch and Learn

Jewish seniors who are members of Neveh Shalom or are part of the Portland Jewish community are invited to attend the lunch on the 1st Friday of each month at Rose Schnitzer Manor, 6140 SW Boundary Street, Portland, OR 97221. Tickets are $5 and include beverage, soup, entree  and dessert and can be purchased on the day of the event. RSVPs should be in at least one week in advance of the first of each month.

Questions, please call Neveh Shalom Program Director Jennifer Greenburg at 503.293.7313 or Cedar Sinai Park Community Life Director Kathy Tipsord at 503-535-4394.
