Marilyn and Monty Hall and members of the Statesman’s Society gathered together with residents of the Eisenberg Village campus of the Los Angeles Jewish Home on Thursday, December 2, 2010, to celebrate Chanukah. The second candle on the Eisenberg Village menorah, or Chanukiah, was lit by Monty Hall, Rabbi Sheldon Pennes, the Home’s Jack H. Skirball Director of Spiritual Life, and Molly Forrest, CEO-President of the Jewish Home.
Following the candle lighting, the group moved from building to building, singing songs, lighting candles, and spreading the warmth of Chanukah to all residents. The festivities continued with the Halls and other members of the Statesman’s Society enjoying dinner and latkes (potato pancakes), a traditional food eaten at Chanukah, with the residents. A moving holiday concert by the Eisenberg Village Resident Choir was then enjoyed by all.
The Marilyn and Monty Hall Statesman’s Society honors those people in our community who are deeply committed to sustaining the compassionate mission of the Jewish Home. These individuals help fulfill the Home’s promise to care for the frail, financially needy elderly of the community. The Society is named for benefactors Marilyn and Monty Hall, inaugural recipients of the Jewish Home’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
