Vergie McCall on being named Beth Sholom Village Volunteer of the year. A dedicated volunteer at BSV for nine years, she leads two Torah study classes a month and has created a newly introduced program to BSV titled Women of the Torah. This new program will help reunite women to the sisterhood of Judaism. The prevailing idea behind Women of the Torah is that, in spite of living in a facility, residents still need to feel part of the community, just as they did during their earlier days. Sisterhood is important and is now alive and well at BSV.
Since 2004, McCall has logged 5,368 hours volunteering. If a mile is 5280 feet, she has gone the extra mile for BSV residents and staff.
