Jewish Home Residents Visit LAPD and LAFD

On Tuesday, May 6th, 2014, residents Robert Lehman, Ernest Braunstein, George Waldman, Lois Mosenson, and Della Palmer set out on a mission to show their appreciation to a few local heroes at the West Valley Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Fire Department Station 73.

As the group entered the van, they were visibly excited to make the trek to such important places in our community. They brought with them trays of fresh cookies and rugaluch, large posters with handwritten thank you notes, and two handsomely framed awards of appreciation. Robert Lehman even wrote and recited a very touching speech for our heroes:

Yesterday our administrators, Ashley Teal and Douglas Tucker, customized this heartfelt award of appreciation from our Los Angeles Home for our local Fire and Police Stations. You, who choose to sacrifice yourselves for the wellbeing of other people, children, animals and nature by protecting and serving us day after day. We, at the Los Angeles Jewish Home, are so very grateful for your years of dedication and your professional commitment. You are into your craft every day of your lives. You unselfishly give 24 hours a day, 7 days a week of personal sacrifice. As a community, we have wanted to visit with you for a long time so that we can say thank you and may God bless you always.

For the many ways in which our LAPD and LAFD help our community, the Los Angeles Jewish Home and all of its residents, visitors, and staff are eternally grateful. Thank you for all that you do!
