“Proving the possibilities are limitless at JASA”

Rafael Rafaelov was a professional jeweler. But that was before he came to live at JASA’s Brookdale Village six years ago. Today, his hobby is fixing elaborate old clocks. Of course, that’s only a small part of his busy life.

“I love JASA,” he simply said, “I love my apartment, and the ocean view is beautiful.” Rafaelov is also grateful that he can enjoy a kosher hot meal every day at the JASA senior center.

Since coming to JASA he has learned computer skills. He also studies English as a Second Language (ESL) and takes educational trips. Not one to be a passive participant, he acts as chaperone on the trips, making sure that everyone is safely back on the bus on time. At the age of 70, he’s also become a model in JASA’s fashion shows. He loves his home at JASA’S Brookdale Village and extols the virtues of the apartment and its proximity to the water.
