It is teally Pikuach Nefesh and can save the lives and health of so many elderly people worldwide. We can all make the difference and make it happen!

Tiferes zekeinim in CH is basically a shiur for the men. What if they have hearing problems or even some mild dementia, and can’t keep up with the speaker.
I would suggest after the learning, lunch should be served, then time for one on one learning.
(Lunch of course should be dietetic, no sugar, low salt, and not much carb.)
Also on a side note, we need some programs for women. Yes there are numerous shiurim in CH, but not everyone can sit through regular shiurim, we need other activities, lunch, speakers, entertainment, etc. etc.

crown heights hosts tiferes zikainim in 770 near the entrance to the kingston ave vaiber shul.

on a side note, the lack of derech eretz for elders (ergo the chutzpah towards elders) in our community is astonishing and needs to be worked on.

The Chabad House in Johannesburg runs a very successful and well attended Tiferes Zikeinimnorogram which includes transportation, therapies, meals, shiurim, technology and more. It was a life saver for my aging grandparents and certainly staved off deterioration of dementia. The rabbi also would visited my grandparents when they became more frail and less able to attend. He officiated zaida’s funeral with much meaning and sensitivity. I’m grateful to Chabad for that and would encourage other Shluchim and Chabad Houses to emulate their projects.

There are daily programs for the elderly where seniors learn Torah here in Crown Heights, in English and in Yiddish if you need any more information you can call the kollel tifereth zekainim Levi yitzchok office at 718 604 2022 or email: [email protected]

Boro Park is a huge community most of whom use Yiddish as their daily language at home and school.
CH is an English speaking community with Yiddish as a second language for many.
only the oldests members of our community are more comfortable in Yiddish than English.

Is this in crown heights?

Nice program. What about Crown Heights?

Unfortunately, some elderly are undeserved and neglected in the Crown Heights community. Yiddish speaking Alzheimers patients need to go to borough park for any useful program. Unfortunately I know.
