Journal 9- Game Day at the Coves

Last Friday we went to the Coves and had a game day. Game day is where Morah Eta brings in a bunch of her board games and we play with the residents. It was fun, even though only 5 people showed up and I only got to play 1 game. I felt good to make that one couple happy by playing Uno with them. We did the mitzvah of honoring the elderly by playing with them and having fun.

Journal 8- Visiting Mount Carmel

Two weeks ago, we visited Mount Carmel, a elderly residence. It was very nice. First we helped those who wanted to shake the lulav and etrog. Then we danced for about half an hour. Everybody kept suggesting songs to dance to and the Hazzan played his guitar. Finally, we went up 16 flights of stairs to give 4 people soups that members made the other Thursday. It was fun, my friend Noah and I were always in the lead. We did the mitzvah of kavod zecenem, honoring the elderly.
