Hundreds of mishloach manos came pouring into Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation from community yeshivos, shuls, and residents in celebration of Purim. Ezra Academy and Shevach High School both organized hundreds of bags, while Israel Root of the Five Towns once again coordinated a special delivery with many more boxes full of holiday gifts for the residents of the center. The Queens community drive was led by Ellona Kravitz, who joined with her family for the distribution around the facility.

The Purim spirit was brought into the center with a special Purim party that included staple holiday items and of course live music led by Tzvi Bennett on the keyboard and his friends on the mic. Special mention is due to Dr. Edward (Ellie) Bennett of KGH Doc, Tzvi’s father, who thought of his son as the perfect musician to spread the joy on Purim.
