Our sister agency 2Life Communities in Boston shares the following and we couldn’t agree more. “Loneliness and Isolation are 2 reasons to think twice about aging in place. We need people in our lives, especially as we grow older. Our physical and mental health depend on it. A growing body of research shows that loneliness not only makes life miserable for older people, but also leaves them vulnerable to illness and disease. Ironically, most of us express a desire to “age in place” or remain in our current residence indefinitely — perhaps for the rest of our lives. Though that’s understandable from the standpoint of familiarity and simplicity, it’s a choice that can come at a heavy price.” 
Welcome back volunteers! We have many positions open on both campuses. By donating your time, you are making a difference in the lives of our older adults! Click the link below to see our open positions and to apply.
This week we interviewed Eight Over Eighty honoree, former pharmacist and Sculptor, Jerry Soble. He lives part time in Long Boat Key in a beautiful home surrounded by his own magnificent art and art he and his late wife, Marilyn collected through the years. Always hard working with a creative business mind, Jerry began sweeping floors in his father’s Pharmacy as a young man, progressed to owning and operating Soble Furniture with his uncle before opening his own Pharmacy in Dearborn Heights in 1961.

A former president at B’nai David, following in his father’s footsteps, Jerry understands deeply the importance of kindness and raised his own children to perform acts of kindness whenever possible. He and Marilyn, his muse, traveled the country and the world making art and seeking art when they sat on the board of the JCC and served as members of the Cultural Arts Committee. We look forward to sharing more about all of our honorees at our 29th Annual Event.

Here is an extended list of rescue relief efforts to aid citizens during these dark times in the escalation of the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian War. 
The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit Rescue and Relief Efforts
JDC - The Leading Global Jewish Humanitarian Organization
Tikva Children's Home in Ukraine
The International Rescue Committee
Wine-Braised Cherry, Mushroom, Shallot-Stuffed Veal Roast
1/4 cup olive oil
2 large shallots, sliced
1 and 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
3 cups baby spinach
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped
1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped
1 and 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 and 1/4 teaspoons black pepper
1 (3-to-4-pound) veal breast, deboned, pounded into an even layer
1 cup white wine
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1 cup Chicken Broth

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2) Make the filling: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Heat two tablespoons oil, then add shallots and cook until softened, about three minutes. Add mushrooms and cook for three minutes. Add spinach, garlic, cherries, and pecans. Season with half a teaspoon salt and one-fourth teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.
3) Season the veal roast on both sides with remaining one teaspoon salt and one teaspoon pepper. Lay veal roast on clean work surface or Parchment Paper. Place filling in center, leaving about a one-inch border on all sides. Roll up tightly and carefully, pushing filling into center if it starts to come out of the sides. Tie tightly with kitchen string.
4) Heat remaining two tablespoons oil in a Dutch oven or oven-safe baking dish over medium-high heat. Brown veal on all sides, about three to five minutes per side. Add wine, orange juice, maple syrup, and chicken stock to pan. Cover and cook for an hour and a half. Uncover and cook for 15 minutes more. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Slice and serve with juices.

Heaven’s Chandelier

During these challenging days of global unrest, people will often turn to the rich book of King David’s Psalms and draw peace, hope and solace. Here is a story of the impact that the mere recitation of these chapters and verses accomplish:

A wise man once recounted: As a young child I debated whether angels knew the solutions to mathematical equations. After all, they know everything; perhaps they knew this too? I then asked my father. He clarified it for me and went on to say that one thing is certain: The angel Michael makes an accurate reckoning of all the chapters of Tehillim (Psalms) that people recite during their times of dire need. With these he fashions a beautiful chandelier that serves to illuminate the heavenly realms as well as in this world, for the person and for all one’s future generations.

Although I was still young, my father would often ask me, “What’s doing with the chandelier?”
