while you make a meaningful tax-deductible donation
to the Los Angeles Jewish Home.

Getting accurate, current information on how to stay healthy and take care of ourselves has never been more important.

By becoming a 2021 Women's Health Series member, you have access to UCLA's top doctors and their up to the minute research while helping to keep our Jewish Home residents safe during this pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the Jewish Home's ability to admit new residents to our facilities. That coupled with increased expenses related to PPE, extra staffing, special equipment and other unanticipated expenses, the Home's budget is tighter than ever.

As we continue to provide great programs with UCLA doctors, on issues you care about, on topics that affect your health, we hope that you will continue to support and believe in the Home.

In 2021, Women's Health Series Zoom programs will be for members only.

Guests are invited to attend a single program during our 2021 season for a donation of $36.

We are grateful for your generosity and look forward to "seeing" you on Zoom for our full line up of fabulous programs beginning January 2021.

To your health,

Michelle Weisman
Women's Health Series Chair & President of The Executives
