Challenging assumptions about aging

f4b6dca0e2911082f0eb6e1df1a0e11d_mHappy 100th birthday to Yehuda Losky, Yad Sarah’s oldest volunteer!

At a time when many older people have slowed down, become ill and infirm and are dependent on support services, Yehuda has no plans to retire.  His story is a story of positive aging, remaining active and engaged with the community well into late-life.  “All my life, I have helped people, and as long as I am able to stand on my own two feet, I will continue to do it.  Everybody can volunteer” he said.

For the past 27 years, Yehuda can be found every Wednesday at the organization’s multi-service center in Rishon LeZion, repairing wheelchairs and other equipment and helping to ensure these items are ready for loan to the next recipient.  He is the “go to” guy for equipment repairs, helping other volunteers and providing guidance in the busy repair shop.  He arrives early on Fridays — the branch’s busiest day — and charms the other volunteers and clients with stories about his long and interesting life.

Until 120, Yehuda Losky!
