Message to our Peabody Residents and Families from Megin Hemmerling

Dear Residents and Families,

With daylight savings time upon us, we gained an extra hour of sunlight, and with it, longer days and warmer weather. This is a great incentive for all of us to go outside more often. Please enjoy all our beautiful outdoor spaces such as our patios, gardens, and porches that are designated for residents, staff, families and visitors. The change of seasons, especially from winter to spring, is a key advantage of living in New England!

It’s been busy few months on Chelsea Jewish Lifecare campuses. Residents and staff enjoyed our Purim celebrations across our campuses, featuring fun activities, creative costumes, and lively music.

We are in the midst of preparing for Passover and while many Jewish holidays are full of intricate and rich traditions, Passover seems to have the most details. Plans for two festive Seders are underway, which includes preparing specialty menu items, changing the dishes to the sets only used during Passover, and deep cleaning all of our kitchens.

For the second year in a row, Harriet and Ralph Kaplan Estates will hold a communal Seder in conjunction with members of the Congregation of Peabody’s Sons of Israel. It promises to be a very special celebration. Be on the lookout for specific details very soon.

Hoping you had a very Happy Easter and warmest wishes for a joyful Passover!

All the best,
