Dear Residents, Family Members and Beth Sholom Team:

Today I’d like to offer an update of a different kind, one that pays tribute to the many mothers who work and live at Beth Sholom.  Over the last several weeks I have witnessed some amazing mothers in action. Sometimes it was a resident just offering a kind word to a struggling member of our team. Other times a nurse with little ones of her own taking care of a resident with the love only a daughter could offer her mother. Personally, I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to the many mothers that I have worked with who have made life a little more bearable during these difficult days. This pandemic may alter the way we gather this Mother’s Day, but it doesn’t have to alter how we show our appreciation for the amazing mothers we have all around us.

It all reminds me of the famous quote:

“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.”

To stay informed, please continue to check our phone line and website for updates, www.bethsholomliving.org .  If you would like to receive updates by email, contact us at communications@bslcc.org and provide your name, the name of your loved one and the building where they reside.
