Glickman Earns Honor From JGS

LONGMEADOW — Theo Glickman, retired Springfield teacher and past chair for the Jewish Nursing Home, was honored with the 2003 Chairman Service Award at the recent annual meeting of Jewish Geriatric Services (JGS). 

Also, Michael Frankel of Longmeadow, an attorney with the Springfield law firm Robinson Donovan, P.C., was installed as JGS chair, moving up from first vice chair.

He succeeds Paul Salvage. Other officers installed were: Richard Chase, first vice chair; Susan Kline, second vice chair; Jeffrey Rahn, treasurer; Sharon Schwartz, clerk; and Sandy Krasner, chair of the women’s division.

Glickman’s history with JGS began with the “Mr. and Mrs. Club,” a sub-group of the JGS board, which she and her husband, Mike, presided over in the 1970s. She served as chair for the Julian J. Leavitt Family Jewish Nursing Home from 1996 through 1998. She continues to provide leadership for the women’s division of JGS, where she served multiple terms as president, co-president, and donor dinner chair. She has also worked on countless committees and task forces over the years.

Glickman has also been an active volunteer at the Julian J. Leavitt Family Jewish Nursing Home and, more recently, at Ruth’s House, the assisted-living residence of JGS. She is now active in the Family Council at Ruth’s House, where her father, Sid Snyder, lives, and is the editor of the Ruth’s House family newsletter.
