What is a “Wisdom Circle”?
Over the span of an hour, residents learn about a topic of Jewish history and/or tradition. This lesson is brought to life with stories, anecdotes and life lessons. The topics are often connected to the current Jewish holidays, which provides a platform for the residents to share their own memories and insights relating to the discussion on hand.
Following the session, the Rabbi or Rebbetzin spends time with each of the residents, to establish a personal and lasting connection.
