HAPPY 75TH BIRTHDAY, ELLIOTT MAGALNICK!
EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is condensed from a post on Caring Bridge, where Elliott’s son Joel has been posting updates about his dad from time to time. (see article on past rabbis in The Ram’s Horn.) It would be nice to send a card.
Elliott’s got a big birthday coming
Journal entry by Joel Magalnick — August 10
I realize it has been over a year and a half since I last posted, so I thought I’d give an update. Overall he appears to be doing quite well. He has been largely stable for the past couple years with some ups and downs here and there. With the onset of Covid, he has been more or less in lockdown in his room at Brookdale, but starting to venture out a little more for meals in a physically distanced cafeteria.
Since visitors aren’t allowed in the building he has gotten a few visits from friends through the window, where they chat with masks on at a six-foot distance.
… Believe it or not, the old man turns 75 next Wednesday, August 19th. It would be great if you could call or stop by. Unfortunately it’s not as easy as just picking up the phone and reaching him. He has trouble using his phone, even if it does ring, so to have a chat you’ll need to reach out to Brookdale directly at 303-364-7149 and have them come to the room with the phone. They prefer that you set up time to do the call or you even set up a Zoom chat, which the front desk can facilitate.
…Brookdale is at 150 Quebec St. in Denver, 80230.
He would love to have visitors! Stay healthy everyone.
