The first words in this wonderful book – “Israel – 50” – donated to The Saul and Claribel Simkin Centre by our friend David Rosner, were spoken by David Ben- Gurion in 1933;
“Every now and then in this arena of historical forces a great historic opportunity presents itself – as in the Jewish legend, according to which once every year the Heavens open for a single moment and your every wish is granted”
The book is a chronology of events, stories, and beautiful photograph’s from Israel’s first 50 years and will no doubt bring joy to our residents. Our thanks go to David for his generosity.

The Simkin Centre Quality Improvement Plan
Eva Israel’s daughter, Susan, comes to visit her mom at the Centre regularly. To our delight, she offered to play for the residents on Weinberg 3 with her fellow musicians, Alex and Eleanor. This week, residents were given a mini-concert in the Weinberg 3 Lounge. This special little Symphony Orchestra was such a special gift, filling the room with beautiful music. Thank you for giving us your talent and time to make this day very special.
