A Caring Nurse Keeps COVID-19 Patients Connected With Their Families

Lilian Gomez has faced challenges before. As a young woman, she emigrated to New York from the Dominican Republic and built a new life for herself. And she experienced one of the most challenging years of her life, she says, when she studied to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN). “My daughter was little at the time,” Lilian says, “and it was very hard going to school full-time and working full-time. I had classes from Monday through Friday, then I worked double shifts Saturday and Sunday.”

Celebrating Juneteenth with a poem by Maya Angelou

—Rabbi Jonathan Malamy, Director of Meaningful Life

Good afternoon to all at The New Jewish Home.

I want to wish you each a very Happy Juneteenth.

Juneteenth celebrates the end of slavery in the United States. Though President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation technically took effect on January 1, 1863, the true ending of slavery was not actually in effect until after the end of the Civil War in 1865. On June 19 of that year, Union Army General Gordon Granger announced federal orders in Galveston, TX, that all slaves held in Texas had been freed. The Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution was ratified that December 6th formally ending and forbidding all non-penal slavery everywhere in the United States.

Hi there, Jewish Home Manhattan. 

I don’t know why, but I’m feeling hopeful. How come? Let’s investigate. I mean, the world is just as messy as it way yesterday, right?  There are some pretty bad things going on. But today, for whatever reason, I’m vibing on the good stuff.

A statement in support of our community and social justice from President and CEO Dr. Jeffrey Farber.

These past few months have been among the most harrowing of our lifetimes.

How about you?

—Rabbi Jonathan Malamy, Director of Meaningful Life

Good Morning Jewish Home Manhattan
Today is Monday, June 1. 

For a few weeks I was saving up a particular song for today’s message. It starts off like this:
I like New York in June. How about you?
I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?
I love a fireside, when a storm is due
I like potato chips, moonlight, motor trips, how about you?
