Nearly a month has passed since the Lake Forest Nursing Center opened its 22-bed L'Chaim Wing. The walls are adorned with Jewish calendars. Each door frame sports a ceramic mezuza. And soon Jewish paintings will decorate the wing's long lonely corridor. "There's a very big need for this," says Shiffy Crane, the nursing home's director of activities, who is Jewish. "While a (Jewish) person is here, we want them feel supported by their community."

"Some of our seniors are adjusting to many losses and we like to give them extra attention over the holidays," said Shiffy Crane, director of activities and volunteers. "We don't need contributions of food as much as for people to call and spend time with them."

The players were wheelchair-bound senior citizens, people like 68-year-old Eleanor Morales, sporting an ear-to-ear grin, ecstatic after her team from the Grand Care Convalescent Hospital of Anaheim downed a squad from another senior care facility by a score of 7 to 5. "I knew we were going to win," she said.
