Retirement beckons for SHALOM Denver's Arnie Kover

CHANUKAH EDITION 
SECTION E PAGE 12

For 36 years, genuine shouts of affection have showered Arnie Kover as he enters SHALOM Denver, Jewish Family Service’s vocational arm for the developmentally disabled.

“Hi, Arnie! Hi, Arnie!”

“I don’t think there’s anywhere you could work where so many people call out your name when they see you every morning,” Kover tells the Intermountain Jewish News. “They are pure joy.”

Kover, director of disability and employment services for SHALOM Denver, the Jewish Group Home and the Jewish Disability Network — “the three legs” — retires Dec. 31.
