Our goals for the Seniors Health and Life Enrichment Center are all-encompassing and will be implemented over time. How fitting that the first event at the Center focuses on the holy work that is the foundation of our work.
The Synagogue, study hall and Sefer Torah were dedicated by Dr. Albert Dreisinger in memory of his dear wife Feiga. The Ohel Feiga Synagogue is on the third level of the Center, available to the local community and merchants as well as the seniors who visit the Center.

The Inter-generational Chanukah Fair 2017
The participants enjoyed competing for points through all kinds of fun tasks such as shooting the targets (Greek soldiers), cars race, robot challenge and many more fun activities.
In addition, they enjoyed a tasty hot soup and of course, Sufganiyot.
By the end of the evening we gave the 2 final prizes to the 2 teams who gathered the most points.
All the participants received also golden chocolate coins from the treasure chest they opened after answering the riddles.
In conclusion, it was a fun evening of quality time, lighting the Chanukiyah, music and treats.
We thank all the volunteers who gave so much of themselves to help us with this fair!
Corona time concert for lonely seniors
As music positively affects the mind and body, once program restrictions were eased, we hosted a musical show for a small audience. A group of professional musicians who lost their livelihood due to the Corona regulations created a new venture called “If Grandma had Musicians.” They enthusiastically worked to plan a show for us. The wonderful musical ensemble known as “The Excellents” came from out of town with all their professional equipment. The senior guests were thrilled to finally be able to leave their homes. They happily dressed up in preparation for the occasion. It was a joyous and uplifting event. The musicians passionately played and sang from their hearts—with the emotions entering deep into the senior’s hearts. Everyone felt chills and some even had tears. The musical selections were handpicked for our audience.
Aging With Dignity.
