<<First Name>>,

This evening we completed the holiday of Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah. Holidays always bring families and friends together. Yet, this holiday season will be remembered for the ways we celebrated without family and friends.
We would like to thank everyone of you who helped us bring the warmth of the High Holidays and the joys of the Holiday of Sukkot to our community's older Adults and Seniors. We are grateful to everyone who joined us for our special '2020 style' Sukkah Party with Brad's Pizza Truck/Oven. 

We know everyone is wondering what these upcoming months will bring.
What we do know is, we are here for you and our community's seniors. 

We continue to offer stimulating presentations and exciting and tasty programming. Please help us spread the word!
A full calendar of our informative and interactive presentations and programs with experts in a variety of fields is below.

Thank you to our newest Nate Sachs Legacy Chai Club members:
Steven Bromberg, Sharyn Spillman

We are most grateful to Nathan Firer -, Illusionist Coby Elimelech, Musician Vivianne Belanger, Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk, Paul Rockower, Artist Jenna Raskin-Moreines

We look forward to seeing you at all or some of these upcoming virtual events.

What's Your Story? - Nathan Firer

An online video-storytelling platform!
“Storytelling is how we connect, learn and preserve our collective memory. Big stories like ‘how did grandma and grandpa meet during the war’ to small stories like ‘what really happened to my lost teddy bear when I was 5?’ We often forget to ask questions and stories get lost forever. 
Join us and meet Nathan Firer who created Megilla so we never lose those stories and the precious link between generations. Nathan will share his story and demonstrate how his platform is NOT just for seniors but for all generations!

Q&A to follow his presentation.
