The Spirit Award

Michael Shamalov – Chief Executive Officer, LI Script

The Spirit Award recognizes an individual who is well aligned with The New Jewish Home’s mission, and acknowledges how we as a society have a generational opportunity – right now – to meet the needs of older adults during what is truly a transformational moment. Michael Shamalov’s partnership, both personally and through LI Script, empowers The New Jewish Home to provide quality, compassionate care to older adults who need and deserve it.
