BROWARD (CBSMiami) – Hanukkah came a day early for a 92-year-old South Florida Holocaust survivor.
Lilly Michaelis was surprised with a gift bag filled with Hanukkah goodies.
The gift bag was courtesy of Goodman Jewish Family Services of Broward County, who’s handing out 600 of them this Hanukkah.
The bags include a box of Hanukah candles, potato pancake mix, apple sauce, a mask, hand sanitizer and handmade holiday cards from students at local Jewish schools.
“Thank you thank you so much. I honor your words. I feel like, I cannot almost not speak more,” she said.
