Gloria Eisenberg plays the tambourine at her 104th birthday party, held at the Jewish Council for the Aging's Misler Center in Rockville. PHOTO BY SUZANNE POLLAK Gloria Eisenberg has packed a lot into her 104 years, which began in Russia where she spent much of her childhood in an orphanage. Through it all, she continues to be upbeat and currently enjoys spending time with family, playing the piano and dancing.
“She’s very lively, very social, definitely part of the group,” said Adele Winters, who chairs the Adult Day Committee of the Jewish Council for the Aging. For the past year, Eisenberg has been attending the JCA’s Misler Adult Day Center in Rockville two days a week where she participates in games, goes on field trips, mingles and eats lunch with her fellow participants who have physical, cognitive or emotional challenges.
“She loves to dance,” Winters said.
