Parker Jewish Institute Staff Brings Joy


Front line team members at Parker Jewish Institute in New Hyde Park channeled teamwork and joy in an inspiring video filmed and edited by their colleague Aileen Albis-Umali.

The video provided an outlet for some positivity amid the pandemic, according to Albis-Umali, a physical therapist assistant at Parker’s Rehabilitation Department.

“It was a very emotional time,” Albis-Umali said, who in April and May, began taking photos and filming short video clips of her teammates with their permission at Parker.

The video captures the encouraging support Parker’s health care workers received from one another, and from the community. Serving on the healthcare front lines during the apex of the pandemic in New York is something Albis-Umali said she’ll never forget. And that sentiment is reflected in the video.

“I was inspired by how Parker’s rehabilitation department stood strong in delivering care to all of the COVID patients,” Albis-Umali said.
