Resident Florence Lippman chose a pot of beautiful flowers from the donated plants from the Tu B’Shevat Mitzvah Project.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP – NextGen members and Stemtations florist brightened the day for the residents of Seashore Gardens Living Center with a delivery of 150 flowers and plants for Tu B’Shevat on Jan. 27. Tu B’Shevat is an annual celebration of the trees, marked by planting and other celebrations in Israel.

NextGen, a network of socially conscious young Jewish adults in South Jersey, organized the Tu B’Shevat Mitzvah, a program of the Jewish Federation of Atlantic and Cape May Counties. The group reached out to the community for donations for the plants, and coordinated with Stemtations for the delivery.

“This is the perfect pick me up that we all needed today,” SGLC Executive Director Alysia Price said. “We send our heartfelt thanks to NextGen and the Jewish Federation. We are grateful for your love and support. You have made a difference more than you will ever know.”

Resident Cecilia Mastel received her delivery of flowers from Director of Recreation Missy Rundio.

The Simon & Sylvia Zisman Seashore Gardens Living Center is a nonprofit home for the aged, guided by Jewish tradition, law, and charity, dedicated to enriching the quality of life for its residents.
