Additionally, we launched our new.… (Click on the newsletter link above for more…)

RABBI’S MESSAGE: BELIEVE IN THE FUTURE – A JEWISH TRADITION

In the midst of a contentious world, fraught with anguish, a glimmer of light has appeared in Israel. An outstanding neuroscientist, Professor Dimitrios Karussis, a former Greek national, not Jewish, who fell in love with Israel, is conducting research at the famous Hadassah Hospital with stem cells and making remarkable progress there with diseases formerly thought incurable, such as Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS),  Multiple Sclerosis and others.

The secret is to use stem cells from the patient’s own body, cultivate them in the laboratory, reproduce them in the tens of millions and then reinject them into the patient’s own body, with notable and identifiable results. This research is being replicated in major medical centers around the world, including our own Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

MESSAGE FROM LARRY MACK, MONTEFIORE BOARD CHAIR: LEADING FOR CHANGE

It is hard to grasp that Montefiore has been providing services to seniors for more than half the time the US has been in existence.

…Founded in 1882 as the Kesher Home for Aged and Infirmed Israelites to house persons from a nine-state area who were 65 years and older in reasonably good health and in need of shelter.

…Moved to a brand new building in 1917 on Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights. The model took on a new look and served individuals who needed long-term care as well as offering rehabilitation therapies and social programming.… (Click on the newsletter link above for more…)

A great commandment in our Torah (Teaching, Tradition) is to give love. “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” But equally great is a new mandate: We must give hope to so many who need it.
