Jewish Senior Life of Metropolitan Detroit held it’s 2019 Annual Meeting at Meer Apartments on Tuesday night, June 25. “When JSL began, the landscape of older adult living was totally different. The ‘Jewish Old Folks Home’ was incorporated in 1907, and “OLD”meant any age over 55. Today, the average age of our residents is 84 years young. Every day at JSL is life affirming, guided by gifted staff and support groups, flavored with music, culture, laughter and learning,” said, Jo Strausz Rosen, Executive Director of Development, who welcomed the attendees.
