Jewish Melbourne: Jewish Care virtual 'news and views' session with residents

Description (Dublin Core)

"Not even COVID-19 restrictions can stop our volunteers from brightening the days of our Elders at Gary Smorgon House!
Long-time volunteer Errol Rink has adapted his weekly ‘news and views session’ on Zoom, complete with trivia quizzes and lots of jokes. “The reaction from the smiling and laughing elders makes it all worthwhile,” says Errol.
Elder Celsia Goldberg is especially thankful for the volunteers “constantly giving their time, showing love, respect and compassion” and for coming up with entertaining arts and crafts, Yiddish sing-a-longs, music and guest speakers for them to enjoy. “They have made the restriction period so much more bearable, even enjoyable, and for that I am so grateful.”
We are so lucky to have such a strong network of kind and selfless volunteers helping across all aspects of our work."
