Jewish elderly stay ‘Forever Young’ in music video


If Sandy’s got you down, this music video filmed at The Hebrew Home for the Aged in Riverdale will make you laugh, cry or at least give you a break from following local news.


Set to DJ Robbie Rivera‘s remix of Alphaville’s 1980s hit "Forever Young," the video shows residents taking shots of prune juice, popping their daily regiment of meds and dancing a-la rave party. It was pitched, filmed and edited by Hayden 5.

On a heavier note, Sandy’s been tough on New York City’s elderly, with many confined to their high rise apartments in areas that have been without power for three days. The JTA Sandy blog has been posting opportunities to distribute water, nonperishable foods and flashlight batteries to these and others in need.
