HOSPITAL VISITATION On a regular basis, Rabbi Labkovski, visits Jewish patients in
local hospitals. A card and words of hope and
encouragement can go a long way in alleviating some
of the emotional hardships that accompany illness.
In difficult times, one can always find a sympathetic
and empathetic ear in the staff of the JDC. Twenty-four
hours a day, the Greenbergs and the Labkovskis are
available to help. And, indeed, over the years,
they have received dozens of letters thanking them
for their support and kindness.
SHABBAT KITS FOR SENIOR CENTERS AND HOSPITALS Every Friday afternoon the JDC distributes
a Shabbat kit to many of the Senior center residents,
as well as to patients in local hospitals and to
members of the general community. The kit consists
of a small bottle of Grape Juice for Kiddush, a
delicious homemade challah, two candles and information
about the Shabbat. The JDC is asking for additional
sponsors so that this program can reach every Jewish
resident in every Senior citizen home, hospital
or homebound senior.
