Gail Inderwies, founder and CEO of Keystone Hospice, believes that celebrating all religious holidays from all ethnic groups, as well as all American holidays, lifts everyone’s spirits.
On Wednesday, September 22, following lunch, there was a program in the sukkah welcoming Sukkot, with prayers, songs, art and fresh fruits. Sukkot began that evening and lasts 7-8 days.
Keystone Hospice residents, family members and staff members are invited to attend and participate in all the events.
