Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation takes pride in the Jewish senior community of Queens. To celebrate the holiday of Purim, the administration of the facility coordinated the distribution of 450 mishloach manos to local seniors. Led by on-site rabbi Rabbi Zavel Pearlman, the staff bagged gifts for the residents of Boulevard ALP Assisted Living, Commonpoint Queens Central Queens (Formerly known as Central Queens Y), Young Israel of Forest Hills Senior Center, and Young Israel of Queens Valley Senior Center. Paul Kershon and his wife are residents of Forest Hills. Paul has a propensity to give back to his community and chose to spend his day assisting in the packaging effort as the best way to share the smiles and joys of celebration.
