The New Jewish Home is a comprehensive, mission-driven nonprofit health care system serving older New Yorkers since 1848. Their residential facilities empower older adults to enhance purpose and well-being through a portfolio of innovative health care services. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, The New Jewish Home has had to shut their doors to visitors to keep their clients, residents, and employees safe.
The New Jewish Home has launched a “Letters of Love” program to connect their residents with people who care all over the world. The need for the healing power of connection has never been greater – and these thoughtful messages brighten the day for the older adults they care for. Volunteers can sign up to send letters, pictures, poems, stories, and photos digitally to The New Jewish Home. Once received, their staff delivers the Letters of Love to our grateful residents.
Email your letters, poems, stories and artwork to Lauren Leibowitz LLeibowitz@jewishhome.org.
