Congratulations to the winners of the Maurice Surlow Award for Employee Excellence! This award, which takes place three times a year at the Jewish Home and Care Center, Chai Point Senior Living and Sarah Chudnow Community, recognizes staff members who provide superior quality of care to our Residents and their families.
