'Jewish Family Home Care' Honors Holocaust Survivors with Heartwarming Hanukkah Celebrations

This Hanukkah, Jewish Family Home Care – a not-for-profit agency – celebrated the festival of lights by bringing a ray of light to two of its beloved clients. In an act of compassion and connection, two dedicated full-time RNs from the organization visited their clients who are Holocaust Survivors, in their homes, bringing joy and a touch of tradition to their doorsteps. They not only presented them with a special menorah, candles and traditional sufganiyot (jelly donuts) but also with companionship, which is needed now more than ever, especially during the holiday season. This not only highlights the devotion of Jewish Family Home Care providing personalized care but also allows the organization a moment to underscore the resilience and spirit of these true survivors. 


One of the clients the team visited was Leon Schagrin, whose personal story about surviving the Holocaust was reflected in the book, “The Horse Adjutant.”
