Alternative Winter Break Blast From the Past – AWB 2009 – David Smith

By Sharon Schoenfeld
David at the Hebrew Home

They say it’s a small world and it truly is.  Who would have guessed that we would have had the chance to hear a Holocaust survivor’s story at the Hebrew Home after two hours of mingling with the residents this Christmas?!  We spent our day spreading cheery optimism at Hebrew Home with upbeat conversation and even some dancing.  We then moved on to Aventura Hospital, wishing ‘Happy Holidays’ to the patients through songs and cards.

What made the day an unforgettable one for me was when I was able to pass on an anecdote to a patient that I’d saved from a fortune cookie at last night’s Chinese dinnner: “G-d will give you anything that you want.”  For the patient, I’m sure she wishes for good health.  For myself, I would like a fabulous next four days.
