Susan Rappaport, a social worker at Jewish Home Lifecare, won the “2009 Caring Award” for her work with the Central Harlem community.
The New York State Home Care Association gave Rappaport the award because of her “patience, compassion, persistence and unflagging optimism in working with her patients who frequently are coping with very difficult circumstances,” said Bridget Gallagher, vice president of Jewish Home Lifecare’s Community Services.
The organization operates three nursing homes and rehabilitation centers in the Bronx, Manhattan and Westchester.
Pauline Raiff and David Orelowitz were also recently elected to the Manhattan division of the board of trustees, and Stan Pantowich was elected chairman of the system board of trustees of Jewish Home Lifecare.
Pantowich is managing director and CEO the New York wealth management firm Tag Associates LLC, Raiff has worked as an investment analyst and financial advisor for S. R. Weltz & Co. and Orelowitz is a vice president of Global Security Services for Goldman Sachs in New York.
