Walk of Ages XVI Raises Funds to Help Seniors
Dear Friend of the Jewish Home,
This fall has kept us running at the Jewish Home — literally! Last month, we held our 16th annual Walk of Ages, a 10K run and 5K walk/run that raises critical funds to support Jewish Home programs and services. I am pleased to report the Walk was a huge success, drawing people of all ages to participate in this feel-good event. The brisk pace continued with our lovely gala, "Celebration of Life: Reflections 2015," held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. It was a wonderful evening, and I felt honored and humbled to be recognized for my ongoing work on the Home's behalf.
With the recent celebration of Thanksgiving and the impending arrival of the winter holidays, we have much to be grateful for, including the warm and loving support of family and friends. That support is particularly important at this time of year for seniors, who may be vulnerable to financial scams and other forms of elder abuse that often spike during these festive weeks. As always, the Home seeks to raise awareness about these concerns to ensure the continued health and wellbeing of seniors across our community.
As we start the final countdown to 2016, it is a terrific time to go online and visit our new website, which we frequently update with exciting volunteer opportunities and profiles of the men and women we serve. I encourage you to explore these and other features and to learn more about the ways we are helping seniors live happy and fulfilling lives.
Please enjoy the following articles. I look forward to being in touch in the New Year.
With best wishes,

Molly Forrest
