More than 130 folks attend JFS’ Annual senior seder

Jewish Family Service (JFS) Senior Director Hedy Collins tells the TJP, “Under Harry Kahn’s culinary expertise and Isadore Garsek Lodge of B’Nai B’Rith, the Jewish Family Service Community Senior Seder was a huge success.”  More than 130 people attended the seder led by Rabbi Ralph Mecklenburger of Beth-El.  Community members and volunteers took part in the service as well.  Gail Berlin and Jaclyn Daiches sang the blessing over the candles, and Ilana Knust led the Shehechiyanu It was the start of a lovely service and was enjoyed by all who attended.
“We look forward to the community senior Thanksgiving  – hopefully Harry will be able to recuperate from all the hard work by then.  Thank you to all who made this luncheon a success — cooks, volunteers, clean up crew, dish washers, etc.  It takes a village and thank goodness we have the support of the Jewish Family Service Board of Directors who assisted and the Federation Director and President, (who are part of the “Village”), along with the rest of the community.
“Jewish Family Services also wants to thank Hadassah for the wonderful Passover goody bags given for the program.  This helps our seniors and families in the community that would not have the means to have Passover at home.  The sisterhood of Beth Israel also contributed to these special bags. This year everyone recieved 5 lbs of Matzah, gefilte fish, horseradish, soup mix, wine, cake, apples, nuts and dried fruit.  Thank you for your generosity and for caring and for being a large portion of our village.”

‘Daytimers’ tour Acme Bricks

“Daytimers” had a remarkable Tour of the Acme Brick Company Art Collection, Wednesday, April 13.  Most of the 27-piece collection was developed especially for the architecturally beautiful building, and included many pieces made from the actual tools used in brick processing
Following the docent guided tour, the group ate lunch either on the beautiful patio overlooking the Trinity River Trail, or inside in the Acme Brick café.
Tour guide, Rhonda Morton, talked the guests through the three-story building, and in many cases, pointed out how art objects were designed to match the work that is done in that section of the building.
The next event for Daytimers will be a presentation of The Texas Boys Choir Town Choir, Wednesday, May 11, at noon at Beth-El Congregation.  Lunch will be a pizza and salad buffet catered by Palio’s Pizza Café.
