It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news of the death of Norton Sherman, z”l.
Norton, along with his wife, Claire, were long-time supporters of JF&CS with a strong desire to support Jewish elders. They met with Marjorie Sokoll years ago and decided to bring clients of the JF&CS Friendly Visitor Program, which matches isolated elders with weekly visitors, together at two communal gatherings – a Passover Seder and a Chanukkah celebration. Without their generosity, these important events would not have been possible. Over the past decade, Sue Spielman, who organizes these gatherings, expanded them to include all JF&CS Jewish elder clients who are isolated and appreciate being with others for holiday celebrations.
