In keeping with a long-standing tradition, Jerry and Gloria Landsberg brought birthday cheer this week, to Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation.
Celebrating their combined summer birthdays at Parker is an annual event for the couple. Jerry Landsberg is a former Parker board of trustees chairman and now serves as vice-chairman, and Gloria Landsberg has been instrumental in supporting extracurricular activities, with the Parker League, through her leadership. Both have long supported the Institute’s mission and vision, bringing their unique talents and strength to the organization.
At Parker, residents, and families, along with the staff, look forward to the birthday party each year.
Each year the couple treats everyone at Parker, including residents and staff, to ice-cream and live music. On Tuesday, they spent time on floors three through eight, and depending on what unit they visited, they were accompanied by a pianist, a saxophonist or a guitarist, brightening the day with songs. They mingled with guests, residents and their families, and were met with “Happy Birthday” songs. Some of the residents even made birthday cards, as they do each year.
“Jerry and Gloria Landsberg support the mission of Parker, by giving of themselves unconditionally and generously. Celebrating with them is one of the highlights of the summer and looked forward to by all!” said Michael N. Rosenblut, Parker’s president and CEO.
