Bullying in Assisted Living and Retirement Communities

Yes, this does happen! Sad, but true!

Bullying in nursing homes, senior centers and housing complexes for the elderly has increased. Responsible retirement communities have introduced anti-bullying programs, training and policies aimed at curbing spates of bullying, an issue once thought the exclusive domain of the young.

SNAP Bills
Two bills have been introduced this Congress that would strengthen SNAP. H.R. 1368, introduced by Congresswoman Alma Adams (D-NC), would increase benefits for all SNAP participants. H.R. 2809, introduced by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA), would lift SNAP’s arbitrary three-month time limit and ensure that all people have access to nutrition assistance and stay healthy while seeking full-time work. Urge your Representative to cosponsor the bills if they have not already done so. Visit FRAC’s SNAP Legislative Action Center page for more information.

Passover begins at sundown on Friday, April 19 and ends Saturday evening, April 27. In preparation for the holiday, we're sharing some basic Passover Prep info for you - taken from MyJewishLearning.com.
*
Part 1: What is Passover?????
*
*
Passover is a festival of freedom. It commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt, and their transition from slavery to freedom. The main ritual of Passover is the Seder, which occurs on the first two night (in Israel just the first night) of the holiday — a festive meal that involves the re-telling of the Exodus through stories and song and the consumption of ritual foods, including matzah and maror (bitter herbs). The seder’s rituals and other readings are outlined in the Haggadah — today, many different versions of this Passover guide are available in print and online, and you can also create your own.

Stay tuned for Part 2: What do we do on Passover? and Part 3: What do we eat on Passover?

Official Statement from the Buffalo Jewish Community Relations Council Re: Terror attack in New Zealand

The Buffalo Jewish community is shocked and saddened by the terror attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand today. At least 49 people were murdered and more were injured while attending Friday prayers in two different mosques because they were Muslim. Our hearts go out to the families of the victims, those who are injured, and all Muslim communities around the world.

We strongly condemn this attack, which is a barbaric assault on every person who believes in the dignity of human life. Whether because of religion, skin color, ethnicity, etc. we are all human beings.

We stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters – in New Zealand, in Buffalo, and world-wide – in the face of extremist hatred, Islamophobia, and violence. We have reached out to our friends in the local community here in Buffalo to express our support in this time of grief. We know the pain of being attacked in a place of worship and must work to make sure places of prayer are safe. We pledge to continue our efforts as we work to call out and ultimately end intolerance and hate.

In honor of International Women's Day, we're honoring Sophie Scholl.
-------------------------
On February 18, 1943, Sophie Scholl, her brother Hans, and their friend Christoph were arrested for distributing anti-Nazi literature at their university in Munich. It was the early days of opposition to Hitler within Germany. At the Scholls' show trial, the judge didn't give the defendants a chance to speak. So Sophie yelled.

“Somebody had to make a start,” she shouted. “What we wrote and said is also believed by many others. They just don’t dare express themselves as we did.”

She and her brother were executed a few days later. Their words lived on. A copy of their final leaflet was smuggled out of the country and reprinted in the UK as "The Manifesto of the Students of Munich." A few months after the Scholl siblings died, Allied planes dropped millions of copies over Germany.

Today, Sophie is known within Germany as a hero who stood up for what was right with unflinching bravery. She should be better known outside of it, too.

FYI

SNAP Info for New York State Regarding SNAP benefits for February, 2019
Overview of the SNAP Impact for February 2019

Due to the partial shutdown of the Federal government, February SNAP benefits will be issued on or before January 20th, 2019. Local SNAP offices have been asked to process recertifications that are due on or before January 31st as soon as possible with the intention to have them processed by January 18th.

This is important to understand - the SNAP allotment for February will be given out around January 20th - this is to last you until the end of February. This is NOT a bonus !

What This Means for SNAP Recipients

Current SNAP recipients will receive their regular SNAP allotment for February in late January. This means they will not be receiving a February payment, so they should be advised to try to budget their food needs accordingly. It is important to remind SNAP recipients that this is not an additional payment, but rather an early payment for the month of February.

Moving Forward

SNAP offices should continue to process applications as usual. Although we do not have information regarding the outcome of the government shutdown, more information will be provided as it is made available.

Excited that the Buffalo History Museum will be doing a presentation about Tim Russert at our building in November!

Tim Russert was many things - he wasn't just a Buffalonian, he was a "South Buffalo legend," an avid Buffalo Bills fan, he was a family man, and he was "one of us"! Our exhibit, 'Inside Tim Russert's Office: If it's Sunday, it's "Meet the Press,"' created by the Newseum in 2009, gives you a unique perspective into who Russert was. The exhibit is a recreation of Russert's NBC office and tells us about his life, from the early days of growing up in South Buffalo to being the moderator of the longest-running program in television history, "Meet the Press".
