Just wanted to say that my mom wanted to express her gratitude for the wonderful meals that were sent to her while I was not able to cook for her due to being in quarantine in another location after traveling. …Once again I wanted to say thank you it is a beautiful thing that you were doing during this difficult time to help or seniors in the community.Cindy

A Beautiful Thing
In no way isolated
The session on ZOOM was very helpful and I look forward to participating in classes to be announced.
I am both amazed and grateful to the Riverdale Y and the Jewish community of Riverdale for the support they are giving during this critical time. While I am self isolating, I am in no way isolated.
Thank you and stay well.Betty Baumel
You lifted my spirit
I want to thank the Y team for offering online exercise classes. This morning I joined Jad’s class. Please let Jad know that I’m isolated in a little cabin in the Catskills and it was fun seeing her in my living room. As she suggested, I used a combination of household items and weights I brought up from the city. I so enjoyed connecting with her and knowing that other Y members had joined in as well. It gave me a sense of community and lifted my spirit. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be to conduct the class without seeing or hearing us. Please let Jad know that she did a great job – I worked up a sweat and I loved her sense of humor.Dawn
