“Shalom,” says Sarah Moskowitz. Sarah is the Volunteer Coordinator and Spiritual Leader at The Towers. She has been working at The Towers for two years. Her responsibilities include recruiting, training and placing volunteers into meaningful positions. When she first arrived, The Towers had about 40 volunteers and currently we have 246. Volunteers come to The Towers to make a difference in the lives of our residents. “They are some of the most compassionate people I have ever met,” Sarah says. On the spiritual side, she leads services one Shabbas a month, something she has been doing for the last 30 years of her life. She taught Bnai Mitzvah lessons for 30 years. She enjoys davining for this community and getting to know the residents in a different way.
Sarah graduated from Ithaca College with a major in Public Communications. She studied in Israel for a year with Young Judea’s Year Course and spent three years in the rainforests of Guatemala as a Peace Corps Volunteer. She speaks four languages; Hebrew, Spanish, Kekchi and some English. She is known as Mom to Shoshana, Isaac and Eli. Sarah’s favorite thing about working with seniors is learning about their life experiences. Sarah says, “you never know what amazing things a person has done!”
