On Monday, May 19, StoryCorps visited with and collected stories from residents of Menorah Home and Hospital. Menorah is a rehab and care facility that sits on 10 oceanfront acres in Brooklyn’s Manhattan Beach. Nancy Sondag, director of therapeutic recreation for Menorah, coordinated our visit and participated in interviewing residents. During the day residents enjoy gazing out onto the gardens and ocean views, participating in creative projects such as ceramic, sculpting and painting, visiting with family and friends and, taking in some of the special events and performances that happen throughout the day. While we were there, magician Rene Gonzalez performed for residents in the grand auditorium.
