On Wednesday August 18th I had the absolute honor of doing my 2nd Hebrew Academy for Special Children (HASC) event. When Grant Silverstein, the Director of Special Projects and Alumni Relations at HASC called me to book an appearance to benefit Camp HASC, I immediately said yes!

I have chills and tears just writing this post knowing I can never accurately convey what Shani a 5 year Camp HASC counselor and division head shared with us.  She spoke about how the camp services campers from 3 to 73.  I had no clue as to how large a consumer group Camp HASC reaches.  I always imagined it was only children.  She spoke about a Shabbos evening where campers and counselors were singing and dancing with such excitement energy and love and how counselors put immobile campers on their shoulders.  She painted such an amazing picture of the last Shabbos at Camp HASC and told how the coming Shabbos for some campers will leave them in group homes that may not have the same ruach (spiritual excitement and energy) and joy that they experience at Camp.  My heart swells just to know how many special people dedicate their lives to working with special needs children and adults.  Shani explained there are 400 staff members to 300 campers.

On April 28, Meadow Park Rehabilitation & Health Care Center and the Chai Traditions Program presented cooking sensation Jamie Geller to perform a cooking demonstration at their facility in Fresh Meadows, Queens. Members of the community, facility residents, and staff were wowed by Jamie Geller’s sophisticated, yet ironically simple ways to prepare meals. She showed six of her world-famous recipes which included mango-strawberry soup, Mexican quesadillas, and scrumptious cheesecake.
