JFS volunteers help share Passover with elderly in area nursing homes How can one celebrate Passover without the matzoh and the gefilte fish? It's just not prop- er! For I00 Jewish residents who reside in area nursing homes and assisted living facilities, it's an unnecessary worry. Two weeks ago, just prior to the Passover holiday, Jewish Family Service, with the help of its force of energetic volunteers, delivered 100 complete Passover dinners including such things as chicken, soup, macaroons, grape juice, matzoh and gefilte fish. According to JFS Volunteer Coordinator, "this project is financially sustained on an annual basis by the Pincus Paul Foundation who has made it their mission to ensure that these elderly and disabled members of our community have the means to a proper seder meal. The Founda- tion's efforts were supplemented this year by Jordon Slone and Laurel Gutterman, who gener- ously jumped in to help fund the program. This year, Chesapeake Place Assisted Living Facility festively decorated the grocery bags that the food was delivered in. Mar- sha Goldman, a JFS volunteer, designed a beautiful Passover greeting card, Many thanks go out from JFS to the following volunteers who helped coordinate, assemble and deliver the goodies: Roz Beldin (who called all of the facilities for a list of Jewish residents), Joyce and Stanley Serxner, Marilyn Rebby, Dottie Slone, Susan Gold- stein, Elaine and Herbie Breg- man, Anne Kramer, Bonnie Laib- stain, Shirley and Larry isrow, Joe Fleischmann, Norton Waranch, Sid Chernick, Sylvia Littman, Etta Lind, Lil Kozak and Mark Snyder.
