Bill Aberman— A True Mensch


or Bill Aberman, Sholom was the ideal setting – it was community. Bill and his wife, Bailee, life-long residents of the Twin Cities, were deeply rooted in the Jewish Community. Together they supported many Jewish organizations and Bill held leadership roles in several. Bill’s mother, Anna, was a Bill Aberman resident of Sholom in the days when its address was on Midway Parkway. When Bill moved to Sholom four years ago, he found an exact fit. Whether involved in community activities, at work, or spending time with family, Bill was at his best interacting with others. Ever the great connector, he assisted countless individuals in finding employment through the diversity job fairs he developed. His son David said, “Dad loved people, and they loved him. He was kind, funny, a true gentleman, a great friend, and above all, a mensch.” As Bill reached his later 80s, and having lived on his own since Bailee passed away, continued on page 3

Teach Your Children


any of you may remember when the song Teach Your Children was a #1 hit, and it is still considered a classic today. It speaks of parents’ love for their children, sharing life’s lessons, and recommends that parents let kids know their dreams. If you first heard the song when it was released, you are likely of an age where your kids may now be off on their own, yet they, and you – all of us – are still learning life’s lessons. No one stops being a parent when a child moves into his or her own home. Parents continue to educate family members throughout their lives exemplifying their values by the way they live and the commitments they make. At the Sholom Foundation, we hear our friends extol the important role Sholom plays in the Jewish Community and demonstrate their commitment by sharing their support today as well as in in their plans for future giving. We encourage families to discuss tangible methods of showing support for worthy not-forprofit organizations such as Sholom, establishing the foundation for values to be continued on page 5

Todah Rabah—Thank You Very Much Do you know who you helped today? Because of your generosity, seniors at Sholom live in a safe and comfortable home. Because of your support, countless seniors have access to a myriad of services and therapies at Sholom and are confident knowing that staff is there to assist. Because of you, all this exists in a community imbued with Jewish values and traditions. We are proud to report, with our thanks to you, the amount of funds contributed annually from the Sholom Foundation to Sholom and the Auxiliary continue to increase, as the graph at right demonstrates. Why are donations and endowment funds so important? For example, every year operating budgets are created for each program under the Sholom umbrella, calculating planned expenses such as food, utilities, staff costs, supplies, resident classes, entertainment, and transportation. Income from government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, long term care insurance, rent, fees and other payment sources are tallied, and most often the costs outweigh income. Does this mean we have poor business practices? On the contrary! Sholom prides itself on its high standard of services and a desire to provide person-centered home-like care and support. This philosophy and the extras it entails are usually not fully funded.

Grants to Sholom Community Alliance and the Sholom Auxiliary 2017 $2,179,174 2016 $1,273,101 2015 $890,556 2014 $820,120 2013 $803,225 2012 $597,691

2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017

This is where YOU come in. Your generosity facilitates the growth in endowment funds designed to sustain Sholom long into the future. A percentage of the interest earned on these funds, along with gifts and current donations are used to bolster and help increase the revenue side of the equation, allowing Sholom to not only meet its responsibilities to the Community, but also, to exceed them. More than just a “nice thing to do,” your financial support is vital to all that takes place at Sholom. Thank you for your ongoing generosity.

Bill Aberman continued from page 1 he began to feel a bit isolated and sensed the edges of loneliness. Bill weighed the advice of family and friends, and asked his daughter, Kerry, to call Knollwood Place Apartments to say he’s ready to move in. Son Rick said, “I was worried that Dad would age quickly if he moved out of his own place. Was I wrong! Rather than getting “old,” Dad created a new life for himself and loved Sholom.” Kerry added, “Dad would never have considered going anywhere else. Knollwood was it! Sholom truly represents the Jewish community and that is what Dad and all of us wanted.” Bill Aberman’s children: (L to R) Kerry Bader, Rick Aberman,

Teach Your Children continued from page 1 passed from one generation to the next. Whenever parents make an important charitable lifetime gift, or establish a bequest in their estate plans, it speaks to their values and dreams. More often than not, parents want their legacy to be an example for others in their family to follow. We hope parents encourage their families to share in their their involvement with Sholom, for we know that generations of support are created by the actions of the elders. Teaching and modeling what you feel in your heart has every potential to draw your children and grandchildren into considering how to follow your lead. The Sholom Foundation can assist you in explaining how to make a contribution today or a create a planned gift for tomorrow, the deep importance of your gift, the legacy you are creating, and the lessons you are modeling for your kids and grandkids. We can help you Teach Your Children!

Caregiver Support at Sholom re you a caregiver? Are you looking for caregiver support? Are you seeking community resources and information? Sholom’s Caregiver Support Groups may be your answer.


staff, joined by community partners, offer opportunities for support meetings to all caregivers, whether a loved one is in the community or at home on a Sholom campus.

Generally defined as an individual who offers support and care for a loved one, serving as a caregiver is an enriching, fulfilling, and sometimes challenging task. Caregiving runs the gamut from providing full-time hands-on care to shopping, preparing meals and running errands, to initiating a daily check-in phone call. Caregiving may be cross generational – taking care of one’s children, spouse, and household, while simultaneously undertaking the daily responsibilities for elderly parents or other relatives. Many family members whose loved ones have become a Sholom resident, report that while the nature of their caregiving changes, they continue to seek caregiver support. Do any of these examples resonate with you?

At the Ackerberg Family Sholom West Campus, a Caregiver Support Group meets on the second Tuesday of each month in the Board Room at the Knollwood Place Apartments, 3630 Phillips Parkway, St. Louis Park, MN 55426. The Caregiver support meetings offer education and support with discussion topics determined in large part by the participants. At the Shaller Family Sholom East Campus, Caregiver Support meetings are sponsored by Sholom and Jewish Family Service with a special focus on caregiving for persons with dementia.

Both research and anecdotal reports demonstrate the positive effects on quality of life when caregivers avail themselves of supportive programs. Sholom’s expert

Meetings at Shaller take place in the Marilyn Greenberg Community Room in the Bentson Family Assisted Living Building, 740 Kay Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55102. Meetings are open to all. Please join us.

Life is uncertain and as are your financial needs. One way to make a difference at Sholom, while not affecting your day-to-day budget, is to make a financial commitment through a planned gift which will come to fruition and have a financial impact in the future.

A message from Sheryl Rutzick, Auxiliary President Did you attend Food for your Soul? If you did, thank you!  If you didn’t, you missed a fabulous Sheryl Rutzick evening! The entertainment was outstanding and we saw a wonderful video about Sholom residents, tenants, staff and family members.  Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we were able to raise about $95,000. Be sure to check out all the photos on our Facebook page.    With the High Holidays right around the corner, the knish ladies have been busy! If you have not ordered, you will be put on a waitlist and contacted when your knishes MIGHT be available. Pick up will be in early September.    Please mark your calendar for the annual Auxiliary Luncheon, October 17th at the Shaller Family Sholom East Campus. New officers will be installed at this time. It’s a great time to get together to see your friends and enjoy a fabulous lunch.   We are looking to host a membership event in the fall. If you would like to assist or have ideas, please contact me at In the past, we’ve done designer bag bingo & jewelry bingo. Even though these events have been well attended, we are always looking for new ideas to get others interested in becoming a member of the Sholom Auxiliary.   As always, thank you for all you do for the residents and tenants of Sholom!

Sholom Auxiliary Endowment Funds The Sholom Auxiliary provides countless volunteer hours and crucial financial resources for the comfort of Sholom residents. What if you could ensure that your annual support of the Sholom Auxiliary would continue when you are no longer here to write that check? You can! Consider establishing your own named Auxiliary endowment fund or donate to any of the existing Auxiliary endowment funds listed here. 4% of every Auxiliary endowment fund is used annually for the benefit of Sholom clients. All gifts and beneficiary designations should be made payable to: Sholom Foundation, for the benefit of the Sholom Auxiliary. To find out more about creating your own Sholom Auxiliary Endowment, contact Joel Mandel at 952.939.1593. Endowment gifts of any size are welcome and may be pledged over a period of years or as a bequest. Cash gifts or pledges starting at $10,000 or estate gifts starting at $20,000 will establish a named Auxiliary Endowment Fund at Sholom Foundation and will be recognized on the Walls of Honor at both Sholom campuses.
