A Nice Gesture
During the summer, they offered free of charge, a dish of ice cream. It was served in "The Nosh," which used to be a small snack shop just off the library and main living room.
Now that it is fall and winter, they offer between the hours of 1:00-3:00 a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie. Also free of charge.
Being a Jewish organization, no work on the Sabbath (or Shabbas as some know it) so the Nosh hours are Sunday through Thursday with no hours on Friday and Saturday.
This creates a nice destination point for residents to go to, away from their rooms and floor, for refreshments and to visit with their visitors.
