The holidays are a time when individual want to get into an emotional and spiritual frame of mlnd and these songs unlock some- thing inside. For seniors in long term care, hearing tunes from the -1930's as well as Yiddish and Jewish music brings back fabulous memories of their youth. They love the music because they love the memo- ries. The songs remind them of family, childhood, a time when it was safe to be vulner- able and safe to believe. After years of dealing with illness and loss, the music allows residents to let down their guard. Music softens them so they can come into the warmth of family and friends. Whether it be at a week!y happy hour, a monthly mu- " sical afternoon or a holiday celebration, the Jewish Pavilion often provides the opportunity for the seniors to experience such pleasure. The four program directors work diligently to make sure that many residents are fortunate to receive the services the Jewish Pavilion providesl "Everyone seems to benefit from the wonderful programs that we so enjoy planning. There is no bet- ter feeling than witnessing an elderly that usually is quite incoherent, start to clap hands and mouth the words to a familiar song," stated Julie Levitt, one of the program directors. Stewart Bloom recently entertained with folk songs at a facility and commented "I couldn't believe I engaged this audi- ence with my songs. My performance was heart-felt and I think our seniors knew."
