Shabbat Across the East Bay Raises Awareness for The Reutlinger's Resident Assistance Fund
The Reutlinger Community
(Danville, CA)
The Reutlinger Community/Schiff Center for Life, formerly the Home for Jewish Parents, Inc., was founded over 65 years ago in the East Bay. Its mission, then and now, is to provide the elderly Jewish community and others with outstanding independent living, assisted living, long-term and rehabilitation care in a life enhancing and stimulating environment.

To that end, The Reutlinger has designated the Shabbat weekend of May 19 and 20, 2017 as Shabbat Across the East Bay. Its goal is to raise awareness of the critical need in the community to raise funds for the Resident Assistance Fund so that
Reutlinger residents can live out the rest of their lives in the safe and caring home that they love.
                
 
Project Transformation: Paul Cohen Pledges $1 Million Bequest
JGS Lifecare
(Longmeadow, MA)
With the opening of Sosin Center for Rehabilitation and Michael's Café in December, Project Transformation embarks on its Phase II fundraising, bringing the relationship-based small house model of care (The Green House®) to JGS Lifecare's long-term residents.

On a Wednesday morning in January, when Paul Cohen joined Attorney Stephen Krevalin for lunch at Michael's Café in the Sosin Center for Rehabilitation, he was not prepared to be wowed by what he would see. Looking back, Paul says he expected that the new short-term rehabilitation center would be a nice-looking medical facility with the traditional hallways, nurses' stations, medical carts, and large rehabilitation gym. Instead, he found something quite different.
