Olympics at the Senior Center

Like everyone else, the elderly residents of the Madlyn and Leonard Abramson Center for Jewish Life outside of Philadelphia have been incredibly involved with the Olympics this week.

But not the Olympics in Athens Greece…they’re participating in their very own Olympics.

Philly Burbs tells of how the Olympic torch (three flashlights taped together) were passed from hand to hand before the games began. Competition has included everything from shotput to beanbag toss, and for those who can’t compete in the physical games, there are word games. After the games, several residents were off to the library for Yiddish lessons.
