Sara Hochman Fund Moves to JFM

From the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba 2016 Annual Report –

In 2016, The Saul and Claribel Simkin Centre moved its Sara Hochman Music Therapy Endowment Fund to the Centre’s organizational endowment fund at the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba.

“Sara Hochman is a legend at the Simkin Centre. As a community volunteer, for over 50 years, she joyfully played piano for the residents here at the Centre and at the Sharon Home on Magnus Ave. Today, she is in her mid-90’s and still plays piano for our residents from time to time. At the Foundation, the fund will continue to support music programming and music therapy initiatives at the Centre. The evidence is becoming increasingly clear that music is a powerful way to enrich the lives of people living with dementia. Music enhances the well-being of our residents – just like Sara always has.” [Irwin Corobow, Chief Executive Officer, Saul and Claribel Simkin Centre]
